The Pin Junkie: Friday Link Party #12

Friday Link Party #12


Happy Friday and welcome to the Friday Link Party! 
Here's a quick look at what I've been up to this week:

 I read a really wonderful book by Nancy Sathre-Vogel 
called Changing Gears about a family that spent 
three years biking through North and South America.

I made an easy to make, healthy and delicious 
copy-cat recipe for a Wendy's frosty 
that tastes as good as the real thing!

I also made yummy apricot glazed pork chops.  
They're quick and easy to make and perfect for a weeknight dinner.

  6. Thanks for hosting & featuring my lightbox. It's gotten much more attention than I thought it would. It's not very pretty, but people like the functionality of it. I've pinned & tweeted this post and put the button on both my sidebar and the actual post.

    1. I've seen tutorials on a few other blogs on how to make light boxes. I pinned one and was planning on making it for myself. My husband bought me one for Christmas instead. I've used it a couple of times and really love it! It's kind of small though, so I might make one for photographing bigger items. Thanks for sharing yours!

  12. OMG! I love Pinterest but never have time to make anything...mostly because I know if it says it only takes an hour, it means it will take me 3. But I LOVE those pinwheels and now I want a Wendy's Frosty!

    I found you on the Blues Skies Ahead Blog Hop. :-)

    1. Ha-Ha! That's so true! Sometimes "easy" projects take longer than you think they will. That happened to me this weekend! Thanks for stopping by Lisa!
