Do you love to organize? I do. I don’t get to do it as often as I would like. Lately, I’ve been in an organizational mood. I’m organizing many areas of my house. When things are out of order and unorganized, the mess just becomes bigger. That’s why I want to get all of my storage spaces organized to make my life easier.

I organized my cabinets underneath my kitchen sink, changed things in my kitchen cabinets around, organized my hutch, and other couple other storage spaces. Since I love being organized, it feels great to have things in order.

 When it comes to coffee, do you stick with a certain flavor or do you like to experiment with your flavor?

Almost every morning/afternoon, I am drinking a cup of coffee (or two). There are some days where I need coffee to help me through the day. When it comes to coffee, I like to switch up the flavor. I always try to find new flavors such as red velvet.

Grilled Sweet Peppers Wrapped in Bacon

Do you love sweet peppers? Do you love bacon? If so, then you would love sweet peppers wrapped in bacon.

My husband and I were grilling one evening and we were trying to think of a different side we haven’t had. He asked, “Do we have bacon?” I said yes. We then thought that grilling sweet peppers (we had in the fridge) wrapped in bacon would be perfect.

I played with the flavor of the sweet peppers and bacon and added seasonings that I thought would taste great on the sweet peppers and bacon. The first time we made these peppers, we used a half slice of bacon with no toothpick. Withhold a toothpick, the bacon fell off of the peppers very easily. So the second time we made these peppers,we used a whole slice of bacon and purchased toothpicks to hold the sweet peppers and bacon together.

What would be a perfect main dish to go with these sweet peppers wrapped in bacon? Steak kabobs or steak would be perfect.

Check out my recipe for sweet peppers wrapped in bacon.

I’m a big fan of stripes. How about you? I own several striped tops. One of my favorites is my black and white striped tank top. I love wearing the top with a pair of my colored skinny jeans. The pop of color from the jeans look great against the black and white. What I love about a striped top is although it might be simple, you can pair items of clothing and accessories to make that outfit pop. Do you own any striped tops? What is your go-to-color for stripes?
