Summer is clearly here in the Grant household. This means that kids are successfully driving me crazy by 10 a.m.
Because of that, I’ve started my 70 Days of Summer ~ Photo A Day Challenge. Come join me.

Here are the Featured posts from last week!
Ginger chose Homemade Cookies & Cream Ice Cream – No Machine Required! from Study at Home Mama. “This looks delicious and so great that you don’t have to have a machine to do it.”
Tina also chose this post. “What a yummy recipe. So easy to make, looks amazing. Perfect for a hot summer. Thanks for sharing.”
This post also received the most clicks.
Ginger chose Chocolate Peanut Butter Bars from The (mis)adventures of a “Born Again” Farm Girl. “This recipe reminds me of being a kid. We would get something like this at lunch in elementary school and I loved them! I am excited to recreate that treat with this recipe!”
Kori also chose this post. “I chose this one because I love the combination of peanut butter and chocolate and this recipe sounds delicious.”
Kori chose Snickerdoodle Cookie Bars from Typically Simple. “I chose this one because I have a sweet tooth for anything snickerdoodle. I love this flavor combination and usually only make Snickerdoodles at the holiday time.”
Kelly chose Painted Vintage Books from H2O Bungalow. “This project is such a pretty way to jazz up old books for the coffee table – I love them! I think this would also work well to personalize hardcover notebooks to use as gifts.”
Amy also chose this post. “I love this idea of taking old tattered books and turning them in to painted vintage books to decorate the house. Not only do the books look so cute but it also turns something junkie into something useful!”
Kelly chose Your Feelings Are Showing from our very own Tiffany from MrsTeeLoveLifeLaughter. “This is something that although I know I do – show my feelings even when in situations I would rather not. I had never seriously stopped to consider how and why. Sometimes I don’t know how to express myself by remaining composed. This post has given me some serious insight on how I show my feelings.”
Natasha also chose this post. “I have always had trouble expressing and managing my emotions. I can completely relate to this post about addressing my emotions. Great post!”
Jillian chose What It’s Really Like to Be A Stay At Home Mom from Fun Money Mom. “I chose this post because I became a WAHM about 3 months ago, and had similar notions as Lisa. I thought I’d have all this extra time to do all these extra projects – and I’m realizing now, how far from the truth that is. Still, I wouldn’t change it for the world!”
Stacey also chose this post. “What an amazing post! So often, I think, my dear hubby thinks that all I do all day is sit and watch soap operas and eat bon bons! Of course it could not be farther from the truth, because my days are filled with home schooling, mowing the lawn, cooking, cleaning, laundry, and all of the other things that it takes to keep the household going. Thanks so much for sharing!”
Jillian chose Olive Garden Copycat Peach Tea Recipe from Best of Long Island and Central Florida. “I chose this post because I absolutely adore peach iced tea, but haven’t found a recipe…UNTIL NOW! Can’t wait to make this one, this summer!”
Amy chose Eggless Choc Chip Cookie Dough from Treat Yourself Sweeter. “Living with an egg intolerance makes it very difficult to eat desserts even though I have a sweet tooth. This eggless cookie dough recipe is perfect for me. I can’t wait to enjoy this!”
Amy chose S’Mores Campfire Cones from Frugal Coupon Living. “I love this idea of taking old tattered books and turning them in to painted vintage books to decorate the house. Not only do the books look so cute but it also turns something junkie into something useful!”
Cindy also chose this post. “I may be making these for Father’s Day instead of the regular old fashioned S’mores I had planned. I adore S’mores and this is a great twist on a classic treat.”
Stacey also chose this post. “Oh my! Yummy! S’mores are one of the kids’ and I’s favorite summertime treats and these look so amazing and easy that they may become a year round treat! Thank you so much for sharing!”
Cindy chose Summer Water Bottle Holder Tutorial from Keeping It Real. “I need several of these, preferably insulated. Unfortunately I don’t have access to a sewing machine. These would come in very handy since I carry my water bottles with me everywhere I go!”
Bev chose 10 Unusual Uses for Salt from Simply Shellie. “I loved all the uses for salt that I didn’t know about and it is all natural.”
Bev chose Colored Spaghetti Sensory Activity from Tulips & Orchids. “Loved this activity for kids. So many learning uses for this activity.”
Tina chose DIY Built In Bench Tutorial from View from the Fridge. “What a beautiful transformation. I love this DIY. I would love to make something similar. Thanks for sharing.”
Mari chose Grilled Vegetable Kabobs from Divas Run for Bling. “I loved Heather’s healthy treat. Great way to incorporate veggies in your life. Great grilling try’s for sure.”
Mari chose Grilled Pineapple with Coconut Whip Cream from A Sprinkle of This and That. “I am all up for grilling as much as possible in the summer, even in an apt. I use my Gorge Foreman grill, Christine’s sweat treat is a must try.”
Natasha chose Best Practices for Posting to Instagram from our very own Tenns from Bliss & Faith. “Instagram is one of those social media platforms that I use regularly; however, I haven’t really taken the time to learn how to use more effectively. Thanks for the great post, Tenns!”
