The last time I linked up I was heading to Pennsylvania for my grandmother's 90th Birthday party. Check out this super cute family picture from the event!
and one of gram, the siblings, and me!

When we were home, we celebrated Amy's Birthday! Of course, a cake was in order!

I also had a chance to see Matt Maher at the fundraising dinner for the Pregnancy Resource Center here in Charlotte.
|He gave a great concert!|

When I was in New York, Nate, Amy, and I tried a roasted beet salad which was delicious (I thought I disliked beets, but I was proven wrong with this side dish). SO, when I was home, my dad offered me beets to take home, so I took advantage. He harvested them for me on Sunday right before I left, and on Sunday I decided to roast some up and got these two amazing dishes!

chickpeas of course, - and planning to have it with
Pumpkin Seed Corn Chips
I know a lot of people have a love/hate relationship with Pinterest, but I really love it. Awhile ago, I listened to a podcast from Stuff Mom Never Told You about Pinterest and why the guys (yes, two men) who designed it did it the way they did. Since then, I've loved it even more. For me, it's an interactive bookmarking system for the internet that I can figure out what I wanted to make for dinner from pictures or searching keywords online. I don't know how to search bookmarks the same way - if you do, let me know! Anyway, searching for some roasted beet recipes, I noticed all of the great stuff on my "YUM ... new recipes to make" board that I don't remember pinning, but look amazing! I'm looking forward to trying out some of these great things this Fall!
A couple of weeks ago I started making myself a scarf (after I made Shep's bday present - check back next Saturday for some great pics of that). BUT it was a little long, so it has turned into a blanket.
Okay well it's not a blanket it - BUT I am well on my way to a new blanket! Check back in 6 months to 6 years for a beautiful blanket!
Also just discovered a site that does this on my Crafty Styles board from Pinterest. Pretty cool water color feature!
