on a {FAST} giveaway from Brueggers Bagels!!

We have loved Brueggers Bagels for years. In high school, I'd get a plain bagel with strawberry cream cheese. When I worked as a youth director, we'd get cinnamon sugar bagel with plain cream cheese and honey. Now my favorites are a cinnamon raisin bagel with plain...

on Overnight Apple-Cinnamon Oats

The first recipe I made from the brand-new Gooseberry Patch cookbook, Good-for-You Everyday Meals {the one I'm giving away - enter here!}, was this winner. My little Boy loves oatmeal, and we eat it most mornings. I only make steel cut oats, and always add cinnamon...

on breaking the rules and loving it

on this & that and giveaway winners!

There are a few things going on, and it's late, and I'm sleepy and it's so past naptime but I want to get these things out, so bullet points here we go! =) Rafflecopter drew for me last night, and the lucky Minnesota mama going to the Twin Cities Moms Blog launch...

on a DaySpring flash Valentines Day sale!!

Affiliate links are included in this post. By purchasing via one of my links, you're supporting my family. Thank you! I used to absolutely adore Valentine's Day. Telling people you love them, eating candy, and pink being the signature color? What's not to love?! =)...
