Sooooo… As you all can see my blog is anything but fancy. I have decided that blogging is something I am really enjoying and want to pursue to along with my studies. I know it takes some money to get started, and that is okay!
What I am actually blogging out today is the fact that I need help figuring out how to do all the steps I need to in order to make myself a self proclaimed fancy blogger.
I host with wordpress and pay for a domain name, but I would like to switch to self hosting. I would also love to create/plan/design an amazing layout that I really love. Photo Bug Mama describes me, but my website does not one bit!
If any of of other bloggers have any advice, and would be willing to take the time to email/talk me through this whole process that would be great!
Thanks in advance to everyone who comments giving me any advice at all!
I am so happy to be a part of the Abingdon Press Christmas Blog Tour! Today I will be highlighting the book A Wild Goose Chase Christmas written by Jennifer AlLee.
Below I included a brief synopsis of A Wild Goose Chase Christmas written by Jennifer AlLee herself, in addition to a link where you can go and read an excerpt of the book!
“Upon her grandmother’s death, Izzy Fontaine finds herself in possession of a Wild Goose Chase pattern quilt that supposedly leads to a great treasure. Of course, once the rest of the family finds out about the “treasure map,” they’re determined to have a go at the treasure themselves. And, if that weren’t enough, Max Logan, a local museum curator, contacts Izzy and says that Grandma Isabella promised him the quilt. What is it about this quilt that makes everyone want it? Is Izzy on a wild goose chase of her own, or a journey that will lead her to the treasure her grandmother intended?”
Here is a place where you can go to read an excerpt from this awesome book.
Overall, I really enjoyed this book. It was a touching read that really emphasizes the true value of family. I loved how this book didn’t make the family aspect seem picture perfect, yet highlighted that some families go through.
Throughout this book, Izzy goes on a journey after her grandmother dies and she moves into her house. She finds all about the historical significance the quilt brings along with her family.
The fact that her brother, along with her mother only seemed to come around for the holidays when grandmother was alive and their interest in fortune seems to strain their relationship.
Oh, and I can’t forget the underlying story of the museum man. Is he only in it for the quilt or is true love blooming between him and Izzy?
I highly suggest you add this to your library this Christmas season!
Let’s all take a minute to acknowledge how lost we would be without Pinterest! Hahaha
But seriously I saw this craft where you cover the lightbulb with a doily and you spray silver or gold spray paint. You could probably choose any color you want! I will absolutely be trying this one.
This month eMeals.com is offering an awesome holiday menu FREE with sign up.
The best part about the menu?
Not only do you get a choice between paleo or clean eating , but they are healthy!
I added one of the awesome holiday treats they offer in the picture to the side. I also added another bonus at the end of this entry.
The Frosted Pecan Tart looks fantastic and tastes even better.
With warm notes of pecan and cinnamon with a whole wheat crust with a hint of honey you will not be disappointed.
When I made it for my friends they absolutely loved it and even led to a do you pe-can or pe-con debate!
The other picture I am showing you all at the end, is the paleo turkey option they include with the paleo holiday menu.
I mean just look at these options! YUM!
When you head over to eMeals.com you will have a choice of multiple different dinner plans as well as lunch and breakfast add-on plans. The plans come in different options like paleo, mediterranean, low fat, classic, vegetarian, low carb,slow-cooker, and more!
I absolutely love eMeals.com and would reccomend to anyone. In fact, I recently told my friend who is interested in transitioning to paleo all about eMeals.com. She seemed so excited that somewhere had planned meals that were different and healthy according to her standards. This makes it easy for someone in college or a mom who is on the go or just wants to keep it simple!
So head on over to eMeals.com while you have this AWESOME coupon code for 15% off this month with the code HOLIDAY !
