4 Blogging Goals

As of today, I’m back blogging. It’s great to be back! I took a little blogging break the past two months. What have I been up to?

I’ve been working on my New Year’s Resolution to lose 15-20 lbs. I have been exercising three days a week and eat healthier.

I am also in the process of potty training both of my girls at the same. Yes at the same time. It is a challenge, but I’m starting out slowly.

I recently started ABC Mouse with my girls. It is a great online learning space and my girls love it.

Over these past two months, I’ve been thinking of lots of post ideas, writing blog posts, and coming up with some blogging goals that I want to focus on this year.

Last year for Thanksgiving I wanted to add decorative leaves from pie crust on the top of my pumpkin pie, but I didn’t do it. This year I decided to give it a try and I’m glad that I did. Have you ever added leaves (or other things) to the top of your pumpkin pie?

Making the leaves was very simple. I used the extra crust that came with the Pillsbury pie crust to cut out eight leaves with a cookie cutter. I drew lines on top of each leaf with a toothpick to give the leaves more details.

I’m going to be making another pumpkin pie within the next week or two and I’m going to have fun with adding decorative pieces of pie crust on top of my pumpkin pie.

Here is how to add decorative leaves on top of a pumpkin pie.

I have started a tradition since my girls were born by creating an album after their birthday on Shutterfly.com. It is fun to go through pictures of the past year and remember those different moments. Have you made an album on Shutterfly before?
