Let’s start out this collection of things I’ve been thinking about with an exciting adventure for my niece Alyson, her husband Nick, and their charming and adorable18 month old son Judd. It began when Alyson entered an online contest and won tickets to the White House Easter Egg Roll. Nick and Aly decided they couldn’t pass up the trip even though they’re in the middle of a big house remodeling project, so off they went to roll Easter Eggs, along with many thousands of other people.
At the event they were lucky enough to be one of 12 couples who got to be in the photo-opportunity of a lifetime and meet the Obamas! Their exciting day at the White House time was even covered on to the local news if you want to watch the video. (And even in a family that’s split between die-hard Democrats and die-hard Republicans, everyone agrees that meeting the president and first lady is definitely a big deal!)
Now here are more things I’ve been thinking about . . .
There’s a fun new feature on both Kalyn’s Kitchen and Slow Cooker from Scratch that will make it easier to click around on the site and look for recipes. Now when you scroll down on the site, the navigation tabs at the top (with the Recipe Index, Recipes by Diet Type, Recipe Archives, etc.) will stay at the top of the screen so they can be accessed from anywhere on the page. Thanks to my friend Lydia from The Perfect Pantry, who shared the “how-to” with me and the fabulous Jennette from MakeWorthyMedia who does all the techy work on the site. Go ahead and scroll and you’ll see what I mean!
