Quarterly Update

Howdy!

Back in December I did a 2013 project re-cap and then in January, I did a top 5 pins of December and then... nothing.  So, because I like to readers other bloggers monthly re-cap's I thought I'd share what has been going on around here. You know, in case you are new or missed something. ;)

JANUARY

- – - – - – - – - – - -- – - – - – -

I started off the month with a public service announcement. That was a scary day for us.  And I also let you in on my inspiration for House Goals for 2014, which we are making great progress on already!


I got all craft and made a Pottery Barn Inspired Tic Tac toe game.  My little guy started reading chapter books and so I made him his own bookmark.


I made some progress in two of our bedrooms by painting my little guys room and I also banished Kermit the Frog from our bedroom. The colours are so much more conducive for relaxing now.


I organized underneath powder room sink and shared with you how I did it. And then I showed you how I organized my linen closet.  By the way,  if you were to sneak a peek in those two spaces, you would see that they still look the same.


With cold and flu season, I shared my cure-all for sore throats and coughs! Seriously people this stuff should be patented, it works. I also shared my love of asparagus!

FEBRUARY

In February,  I talked about how to keep your kids busy during March Break and shared our own Family Day Getaway.  I also helped Anthony with some Valentine's Day cards.


Of course, I always have food on my mind... I made Banana Chocolate Chip cookies, chocolate covered strawberries and whipped up some Double apple Cake. Jovi, the dog, was pleased with how the Double Apple Cake turned out too.  Darned dog.


Phase 1 of our kitchen renovation was also completed and then I shared my plans for phase 2.  Which is just about done and then I'll share with you.  Probably next week.  Maybe.

MARCH

More Food!  Berry Yogurt Parfait, Healthy Breakfast Oatmeal Muffins, Italian Wedding Soup, Roasted Asparagus with Balsamic Vinegar and Feta, and Golden Banana Pancakes. And speaking of pancakes, we also visited a Maple Sugar shack for March Break and had yummy pancakes and sweet Maple syrup. I'm just drooling thinking about it.

My Feature friday series that I started in the last week of February continued. I interview some awesome bloggers and hit them with my best Oprah-type of questions.


In March I also got crafty and turned a placemat into a pillow and i got all techy and showed you how to add your own signature to your posts.

APRIL

This month my oven died, but I was still able to use my stove-top so I shared my recipe for a simple Asparagus Soup.  Have I mention I love asparagus?


But then I got my act together and purchased a stove and then roasted some veggies in the oven, including asparagus.

I shared my new office space and guest posted at the Happy Housie with the details.


I also finally made a decision on our basement half wall after taking months and months to make up my mind, and I'm quite happy with it.



And of course my Feature Friday series continued with a Tiny Sidekick, One Krieger Chick  and  a Prudent Life.


And last but not least I had the opportunity to review Midtown Men and I guest posted on a Prudent Life where I got all techy again.

Phew... that was quite the quarterly update.  Did you get all that?  Hopefully next time it will be a monthly update instead of 4 months worth. ;)
