Makeover Monday and Good Stuff from the Mail

Hey there! for those of you who didn't sneak a peek at the blog this weekend, you'll see our usual Monday morning get together has a different look. The weather's getting warmer, the skies are looking bluer, a few flowers are beginning to blossom. It was time to celebrate.

It all got started when my dear friend Jen from over at made me a new header for spring. Bless her heart, she takes pity on inability to be tech savvy and helps me out. And I'm so glad she does! I've made her my official blog techno guru. She's whipping me in shape.

One evidence of that is...I've added pages. They're a work in progress. But, on the side you'll be able to click on the different pages and pull up the recipes by types. Like our own little cookbook. So far I just have January and February's recipes added and not the pictures. But I'll backtrack and get them all in there.

New header, recipe pages, and polka dots in my background. I'm a happy girl.

I'm also happy because of what I got in the mail this weekend. It was my package from Maryjane at Beehive Cottage. Here's the cute little journal I got from her. I'm going to fill it with my favorite recipes and give it to Meredith when she has a home of her own.

The cookie, the blue stove, the polka dots, the yellow kitchen...I knew it was mine.

Aren't these little tags that came with it just the cutest?
She has lots of other great things at her two Etsy shops. I got this one at her Sweet and Sassy Sadie Lee shop.
I guess a new cookbook journal and recipe pages on the blog mean it's time to get cooking. We need our menus for the week.
Monday--Mini Cheeseburgers, Homemade Onion Rings, Fruit Salad
Tuesday--Fried Chicken, New Potatoes & Green Beans, Creamed Corn, Rolls
Wednesday--Lasagna, Salad, Garlic Bread
Thursday--Breakfast for Supper, Buttermilk Pancakes, Bacon, Scrambled Eggs
Friday--Ham & Scalloped Potatoes, Peas, Biscuits
Saturday--Out to Eat
Have a great Monday!
