Grilled Chicken Summer Salad w/ Garlic Lime Vinaigrette

Good morning and happy Friday! We made it to the weekend!

My next door neighbor and friend had her third baby boy a few weeks ago. I knew I wanted to bring them dinner and scrolled through my Pinterest boards for ideas. I usually make a lasagna or a hot dish for friends, but because it has been so hot outside, I decided on a simple summer salad with grilled chicken and a homemade vinaigrette.

Five Minute DIY Ribbon Wreath

Good Monday morning! After the July 4th, I took the star "wreath" down from the front door and needed a little something to get me through the rest of the summer. If you have been reading for a while, I usually make my own wreaths, and I like to change it up. This one is about as easy as it gets!

DIY Faux Fur Runner

Hello! Welcome to the post on the simplest DIY project ever! I needed a runner for our office space and I wanted something with texture and something soft underfoot. I came across this image on Apartment Therapy and after a quick run to Walmart for some thread, and 10 minutes of my time, I had a 6.5 foot runner for $20! I already had two of these faux fur rugs from Ikea laying around, which made this very easy to accomplish.

Blueberry Doughnut Muffins w/Lemon Glaze

Welcome to July! I'm not really sure what happened to June, but I intend to savor every remaining moment of what is left of our summer! We went early morning blueberry picking with some friends this week. I decided to come home and try a new muffin recipe that I found via Pinterest. Are you guys over Pinterest or are you still addicted? I still love and think I always will! I searched "blueberry recipes" and this one from My Baking Addiction caught my eye. I got busy and these turned out fantastic! A hint of lemon in the glaze, and a dense texture make this recipe a keeper!
