Turn It Up Tuesday #141

Happy Memorial Day. I hope all of you had a relaxing, joyful three-day weekend honoring our fallen soldiers. Today we went to the beach for two hours and only one of us got sunburned. Being Mom of the Year, I noticed he'd wiped off his sunscreen and thought, "after he eats I need to put more on him," then completely forgot about it. I'll slather him with lotion tonight and hopefully he'll forgive me. We're usually really good about sun protection because of where we live. 

But enough about me, what's new with you? What have you been working on to share this week? Post your link below. And then be sure to comment on my Facebook page. I love to promote other bloggers.

Happy Memorial Day

Turn It Up Tuesday #140

Today I took a photo of my son before school as this was his LAST MONDAY IN SECOND GRADE. Wow. He still has two weeks of school, but since next Monday is a holiday, this is it for second-grade Mondays for him. All of the cliches about time flying really seem to be true. 

Speaking of time flying, each week seems to fly by for me as well. On Mondays I post this party, then, before I know it, it's the end of the week and time to pick two favorites for next week. As usual, it was difficult to decide what to feature. This week I choose desserts, but there were plenty of projects and savory recipes I considered too. Can't wait to see what everyone shows next week.

Can you believe Memorial Day is only two weeks away? That means two more weeks until the "official" start of summer season - BBQs, trips to the beach, pool parties ... In a perfect world, right? Here in SWFL it actually means the beginning of the rainy season and unbearable heat. Oh, and the end of the school year, so kids in summer camp or home driving us nuts! 

Not really, but you know what I mean, right? 

So, what are you doing to prep for summer? I can't wait to see your recipes and fun projects!

I hope you had a great Mother's Day. Personally, I got to sleep in, nap in the afternoon, and enjoy dinner out with my two boys and husband.  I ate too many carbs and had a great time! What have you been working on this week?

Happy Mother's Day - TUT

Turn It Up Tuesday #136

This is my last week in my surgery rotation. I've seen so many amazing surgeries, there's no way to choose a favorite. I definitely enjoy the immediate satisfaction of completing a surgery and knowing the patient will feel much better after he or she makes it out of the recovery phase. We do watch our hospital patients for a few days, and it's really gratifying to see people back in the office in regular clothes, hair brushed, looking like healthy people again. That's when you know surgery was the right choice.

This rotation was quite demanding, so I haven't had a lot of time to devote to the blog. But, I'm always happy to see what you all have been working on each week. And, now that I'm done with scrubbing in for a few weeks, maybe I can get back to cooking! Have a great week!

I'm proud to announce that I did NOT file my taxes today, on the deadline. I was early. I filed them last night. Did I mention I'm a procrastinator?

Last week there were so many great recipes, it was really hard to pick two to feature. I can't wait to see what everyone is going to share this week.
