Inspired by You- Weekend Features #5

Welcome back to another weekend of inspiring blogger projects.

We had a mini staycation after our vacation plans fell through and did some fun activities with the boys throughout the week. Look for some staycation ideas on here in the next couple of weeks.

This week I worked on trying to update the blog which included adding a post about our favorite paint colors. I’ll keep adding to the post as we continue to paint and re-purpose things around the house.

I also shared a bit about FASD since my two little fellows have both been diagnosed with this form of permanent brain damage caused by their birth mother drinking alcohol while pregnant.


On to our weekend features!

I’m on a bread baking kick right now so this recipe for Bacon Gruyere Cheese Bread from Savannah at Midwest Modern Momma caught my eye and made me drool a little.

Jenna from The Painted Apron gives a great tutorial on how to paint a crab. I can’t paint anything except furniture so I’m definitely giving this a shot. Plus, I heart anything nautical.

Fluffernutter dip? Are you kidding me? Umm….Yes, please! Thank Dana from This Silly Girl’s Life for this amazing creation!

Emily has an amazing furniture makeover that will blow your mind! She is so talented and creative!

My So Called DIY Blog

Leeanne took an old outdated dresser and turned it into a bed for a small dog. I bet even our high maintenance Daisy would sleep happily in there.


Diva of DIY


And more about dogs…Kelly at Live, Laugh, Rowe shared the sweetest post about potty training her sweet little dog (who looks just like Daisy) to ring a bell to go outside. I’m dying from the cuteness and good advice of it all.

A Worthey Read shared a great recipe for Blackberry Crush that I’m looking forward to sipping on. They have a terrific blog, sharing great ideas (and yummy cocktails) but also their story of having twins with Autism. As someone raising two little guys with special needs, I was pretty inspired to read their story and articles.


Christine at Must Love Home shared an easy recipe for corn on the cob with Parmesan Chive Butter. Corn, butter, cheese. Enough said.


Must Love Home

I don’t know what honey brandy is but I’m going out today to get some for this Tropical Rum Punch concoction!


Ann’s Entitled Life

Shelly from 100 Things 2 Do brought this gorgeous antique dresser back to life.


Don’t for get to share the love and and pin from the original site 🙂
