July in Review

It's that time again - to wrap up the month with a pretty little bow! I've revamped my look a little and changed things around a bit. There are now picture categories on the left sidebar, my header is full of social media icons and categories, and a few things are moved around. I will be updating my blog love page and bucket list pages soon! They are in dire need of updating :)

I am also utilizing Passionfruit Ads for sponsors - there are 3 large and 10 medium spots open. Annnd lastly of all "announcements" is that I am celebrating my TWO year blog birthday with a giveaway starting August 2nd. :)

I participated in both the Crazy Cooking Challenge and Secret Recipe Club this month. I posted Pretzel Ranch Chicken for CCC and Grilled Chicken & Pasta with Basil-Cream Sauce for SRC.

I want to revisit my resolutions again and update on how well/awful I'm doing on them:
  • Eat more fruit - As long as I continue with my yogurt & granola with fresh fruit snacks - I'm good!
  • Get on a schedule - Getting in this month - again hope to continue next month and be able to cross off this tick!
  • Catch up on adding the printable feature to old recipes. - IN AUGUST! Swear.
  • Work on emptying bookmarked recipes. - this too.
  • Leave reviews {comments} for recipes I've tried where I got them. - Work on more of this.
  • Look for duplicate recipes in the ones I have in the binders - Still need to do this.
  • Update Blog Love page. - Doing this in August too.
  • Use breadmaker, cake pop maker, and KitchenAid pasta attachment. - I still need to get the missing piece for my breadmaker. I didn't use the pop maker or pasta attachment yet.
  • Organize kitchen cabinets. - Obliterated this one! I'm so happy about it too!
  • **NEW** Update Bucket List page.
If you missed them, you can find Sunday Social, Oh, How Pinteresting Weds., and Tasty Thursdays by scrolling all the way down and finding the little label cloud. Click on whichever you want to see :)
