Camping in the Smokies

Today’s blog post is brought to you all the way from Cosby, Tennessee, where we are sleeping on an air mattress, in a tent, in the mountains. Everywhere you go you see warning signs that you are in bear country. I had to sign a waiver saying that I understood that we are tenting inContinue reading “Camping in the Smokies”

Our Shared Shelf – In Cold Blood

4.5/5 STARS Our Shared Shelf just recently finished their latest novel! This one was In Cold Blood by Truman Capote. This novel is a true story about an awful murder that took place in Kansas in the 50’s. This was a really good book, but so unfortunate that it’s a true story. I kept forgettingContinue reading “Our Shared Shelf – In Cold Blood”

Grilled Corn with Mustard-Paprika Butter

I’m pretty sure I love any food with grill marks. Corn included. This corn is grilled and topped off with a super yummy tangy butter – and what’s better – I’m SURE you have the entire 5 ingredients in your kitchen or pantry. Watch the video for my grilled corn recipe on my Instagram @livingabundantlyblogContinue reading “Grilled Corn with Mustard-Paprika Butter”

Not Your Average Tuesday

So yesterday we got out of the house. Claire had an appointment at the groomer, and my mom and I decided to go to the outlet mall while we wait for her to get done.

Looking out my window, I noticed the Lilies I planted a few years ago have bloomed. They are the brightest orange, and are standing waist high. Standing tall and proud, not thinking to compete with the flower next to it, just blooming & being how it was created. That’s how WE should be too. IContinue reading “Summer Blooms”

Dinner with a Friend

This past week, I had dinner with a friend. I went over to her house and we cooked fried chicken, mashed potatoes, corn, and biscuits. although I am writing this at 7:30 in the morning, my belly is starting to rumble looking and thinking about this food! A few weeks back, she messaged me askingContinue reading “Dinner with a Friend”

Our Shared Shelf – The Great Gatsby

Our Shared Shelf has finished our third novel, this one being The Great Gatsby. 4/5 STARS ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ I quite enjoyed this one. It was short and sweet, to the point, and maybe a little bit strange. There was always a mystery about Gatsby, who he actually was, what he did. But in the end youContinue reading “Our Shared Shelf – The Great Gatsby”
