Surprised by Family Circle


Has anyone checked out Family Circle lately? I just subscribed because I am on magazine with drawls and needed a fix.

I have to say I really enjoyed this April 17th issue. The cover featured look alike Hostess treats and I thought The Accountant was going to eat the paper. We reminisced about Twinkies and all the other "oh so bad for you treats".

Tomorrow I am going to order the pan to make the Sponge Cakes or better know as Twinkies...

They also had a design feature called 50 Under $50. It listed ideas for entertaining and decorating that wouldn't kill a budget...and wouldn't you know...one of my favorite designer/blogger/thrifter/jack of all trades...Eddie Ross is quoted.

"If you have matching lamps on either side of your sofa or bed, split them up and use them in different places to keep a room from looking too coordinated."

He is everywhere...you can't escape his creativity. Congratulations, again, Eddie! You are covering the world!

This week is extremely busy with appointments, sports activities, party planning and back outside to finish up more planting. Hopefully tomorrow I can share something fun with you about my adventures. With a doctors appointment conveniently located at Oak Brook Shopping Center, trouble can just pop up anywhere. (ps don't tell The Accountant)

Hi Janet! Yesterday while waiting for my Daughter at the Dentist's Office I read every single issue of Family Circle!! I even "stole" a page with a recipe because it looked soooo good....I'm not a baker, let me tell you, but I'll try it anyway!
