Oh goodie goodie! Your candy looks sooooo delish! Thanks for the opportunity to win!

Now for my favorite summer dish.......other than running to get pizza or tacos.......lol. Let me think........hhhmm.......other than BBQ (which is hubbie's job) we all love taco salad. Easy peasy! Onion, ground turkey or beef and pinto beans. Pile on the cheese, lettuce, tomatoes, red onion, sour cream, olives, avacado & the most important ingredient.........DORITOS (seconded by the yummy salsa) LOL We like to crumble the Doritos on the plate & then cover it with the meat mixture. Yummo!
Have a wonderful weekend & thanks again!

Elaine Livesey said...

Hi Michelle,
Many congrats on your blog anniversary, I still haven't got around to starting my own blog yet!
My favourite activity this summer has been spending this past week with my brother-in-law and his wife. They live in Atlanta, and we're in the UK so we don't see that much of each other. It's been a lovely week catching up, hanging out, and eating out.
I don't have too many HH stamps, but I love the ones I do have along with the matching sentiments. So, Matchmakin' Maynard, Luigi - with a pizza my heart - and Bedelia butterfly would all be my favourites.
I haven't cooked much this week! Been out all week,so now I need to diet!
Have a good week.
Lots of love
Elaine xx

Jocelyn aka JoBear2 on My SCS Gallery said...

Happy Blogaversary to you Michelle!! My fav High Hopes stamp will be the next one you post on a card on yr Blog because I know will NEED to have it - I really, REALLY will !!

My fav summer supper (for sweets that is - send hubby out to BBQ for main course to keep mess out of kitchen) is rock melon (canteloupe) diced into small pieces, add to bowl with strawberries which have been cut in half, then add small pieces of crystallised ginger. Let it sit for awhile to marinate the flavours together, then serve with real vanilla icecream. Then try to stop yourself from coming back for a 2nd helping :-0

No blog :-( but email me via a PM at SCS :-)

The most fun this this summer... going to St. Martin! yays!

akagreenhouse said...

I don't know about the most fun thing I've done this summer, but I will tell you about the most un-fun thing I'm going to do. I'm moving. ugh!!! I've never minded moving before. Love the idea of an adventure. But all the times before, someone else has packed all my stuff and transferred it from one house to the other. This time, I get to do it all! Yuck-ee! Packing, packing and more packing will be in my near future. Then I get to help drive the truck to the new place. Luckily we are paying someone to load and unload the truck for us. But it will be nice to be done! Just not looking forward to it.

Jenn said...

WOO HOO Happy Blogaversary! :D

Alyssa said...

Congrats on your blogaversary!! Your blog is awesome - I enjoy everything I see here :o)

Darlene L said...

Thanks for your generous blog candy. Your blog rocks--congrats on the blogversary. My favorite thing this summer is coming up. I am meeting with 5 gfs in Boston later this month for a long weekend of stamping, talking, stamping, talking. I missed our last reunion so I am really excited to see my friends this year.

Happy Blogaversary!! Wow your projects are fabulous and so inspiring. This is some sweet celebration candy you have. I would have to say my favorite summer food would have to be the FRESH produce you get. Nothing like BLT's with fresh tomatoes. Thanks for a chance.

YAY blogoversary :D hehe super congrats! mmmm my hubby and my fav summer dinner is pasta cooked in Adobo (all purpose Latin garlic-based spice mix, optional) drizzled lightly with olive oil and tossed with fresh mozzarella chunks, halved cherry tomatoes, and freshly chopped basil. It's deeelicious, pretty healthy, and light so it's perfect for summer :)

Hi, so far the best thing I've done is go on a "Blues Cruise". Boat went up and down the Ottawa river. A great blues band played. Met great people, enjoyed pizza and listened to some great music.

Cooking is not one of my favorite things to do, so in the summer I like to BBQ (esp chicken)

Blog candy is cool. I have my fingers crossed.

cheers Annie

Hi, Michelle! I Love green! As for my favourite summer supper I love anything grilled (that way hubby helps!) and the heat stays outside! Congrats on your anniversary! I am new to blogging and I have started my own site but I haven't perfected it yet! - I love what you have on yours.

Beth said...

Congrats on your blogoversary!
The most awesome thing I have done is getting to watch my grandson's birth! It was such a blessing to be there! As far as supper..whoever is delivering tonight..lol!!!

PatsyB said...

Michelle,
first off, congrats on your blogaversary! I am not surprised at its success since I have been hooked from the first! I know this makes me sound like a real nut job but one thing I did for fun: I have hated the wallpaper in my bath since we bought the house 4 years ago. A couple of weeks ago, I just started ripping all the loose edges and laughing like a crazy woman! My husband came in and asked what I was going to do now and I said, Who cares! I got rid of something that bothers me! My hubby hasn't worked in almost 2 years and I have been working 3 part time jobs to keep us afloat. LIfe goes on! Hang in there, girlfriend, your dream job is on the horizon! WE will all get through this rough patch and be better for it! As for dinner, I have 2 snickers bars in the freezer!!

Nicola said...

Congrats on your blogaversary. My favorite HH image is the gorilla. I love gorilla's and it can be quite hard to find a decent stamp but HH is the cutest I have seen. I put a link in my side bar on Gorillamama Greats. Thanks for the chance.

Hugs

Hi Michelle!! Happy Blogoversary!! I'm really glad I came across your blog, thanks to my friend, Christine (thanks Christine!) I can't wait to see what the next yr brings!! Thank you for the opportunity to win some great blog candy!

One of my favourite things to make would be my cheesecake...

Graham Cracker pie crust
Pkg cream cheese, softened
Can of condensed milk
1/3 cup Lemon Juice
1 tsp Vanilla Extract
Pie filling of choice or fresh fruit

In a bowl, mix your cream cheese till it's smooth and then add your condensed milk. Mix well. Now stir in your lemon juice and vanilla and mix well. Add to your crust and chill for 3 hours or overnight.

You can use any generic brand, doesn't have to be brand name and in the summer, a nice bowl of fresh fruit toppings is just perfect to top this off!

Enjoy!

Congrats Michelle, Happy 1 year!! I did post a pict and a link and am already a follower, so my fav summer memory would have to be every summer we spend down in Sandpoint, Idaho. My parents now have property there and it's so fun to see my kids enjoy it as much as I did with my sisters!

Hugs, Kelly

I am having so much fun visiting blogs and seeing what everyone is doing with their imaginations and creativity. The only problem is between working and blog adventures I run out of time before I get much done on any of my projects! Your cards are marvelous - looks like I need to get on the Copics Wagon, tho! Fabulous colors! Well, I am off to check out your listings on Etsy! Thanks for sharing!!

Happy Blogaversary! You work is gorgeous, thus your hits speak for themsleves! One of my fave thigs to made for a fast dinner in the summer is to heat up the grill, then wrap a hamburger pattie, onions and peppers, and some sliced potatoes in foil ( a seperate "bag" for each serving) and "bake" on the girll for about 45 mins.
I WILL link you on my blog...thanks so much for the chance!

What a great blog ... enjoyed my visit and seeing your creations.
During the summer I just enjoy a great hamburger done on the barbeque with a nice fresh lettuce, tomato and cucumber salad.

Congratulations on your blogoversary. Thanks for sharing your talent with the rest of us. And also for the chance for some terrific candy!
The most exciting thing I've done this summer - drove for 5 hours (to the other side of the state) for a fun weekend of scrapping & card making with fellow stampers. One of the ladies live in Cook, MN and we spent the weekend at her cabin, scrapped and stamped, went to a Lion's rummage sale (HUGE), bought furniture that took several trips to bring to the cabin and then had to try to fit everything back in the car to come home. We had a BLAST!! My mom came and saw what scrappers and stampers do - we work until all hours of the night :) Can't wait to do it again!!

Hi, Congrats on your blog anniversary. For dinner in summer, I don't think you can beat a good prawn cocktail (except maybe followed by a big pina colada). Keep the cocktails coming.....

Enjoy, Fe

Chelle said...

Just found your blog and love what I've had time to see. Don't have a fave for dinner, but a quickie meal that the kids love...Chicken Spaghetti. Boil the pasta and cover with sauce. The sauce is "souper" easy...1 can cream of chicken soup, 1 can of chicken breast (undrained), 1 pound Velvetta cheese. Mix it all together and cook until melted/blended.

Happy Blog Anniversary! Your blog always makes me smile. :) So, making you smile...that's tough. I shall share my favorite very silly (often sarcastic) sayings.

1 - If you can't be a good example, then you'll just have to be a horrible warning.

2 - Some people are like Slinkies...not really good for anything, but they bring a smile to your face when pushed down the stairs.

Have a happy day and don't be someone elses horrible warning!

Happy blogoversary.
I think my fav summer food are cold foods. One of them is a salad with tomato, avocado, valnuts, feta cheese, apple, carrot, turkey and full grain pasta. I have a dressing with oil in it and some balsamic vineager. You don't think you can get full by some leaves and veggies, but you do! And it's healthy too. Besides, you don't need that much food when it's hot. I make a great strawberry smoothie with apple juice (instead of sugar) and coconut milk. YUM!

Thanks for the chance on your candy. I mentioned it on my blog:

It's been a fun summer watching my children blossom. Its been the most rewarding this Summer because they are learning to swim, playing british soccer, learning to hit a ball, naming states and countries and spelling words outloud all on their own -for fun! . We are taking family trips along that have been such FUN!! As for cooking, Im not one to ask as I dont enjoy it, but love it when I find quick 3 step healthy recipes. :)
