In case you hadn’t noticed Easter is just around the corner. With the hustle and bustle of buying dresses and practicing Easter speeches it is so easy to wait until the last minute to make plans regarding Easter dinner and post service fellowship.

Last year the family and I joined my best friend and her family for brunch at a local restaurant. This year she is hosting everyone at her home for a family style  brunch. We’ve been requested to contribute a few dishes to the feast and being that I cook alright for us I would rather just pick up something that is ready to heat and eat for a large group of people. Mishap proof, cause something always goes wrong when I try to cook in large batches. I know my lane.

After visiting the Honey Baked Ham headquarters in December and having the opportunity to taste the majority of their heat and eat options I already know where my dishes are coming from.

These two were my favorites:

Honey Baked Ham Sweet Potato Pie

Honey Baked Ham Cheesecake Sampler

In the event you weren’t aware Honey Baked Ham also offers Turkey Breasts in addition to their signature Hams. Outside of the premium meats, there are also a plethora of options for heat and eat sides as well as delectable desserts.

As you can probably tell I am on a roll trying to get this house transformed into a home. While I know it will take time the journey of a thousand miles started with one step…you feel me?

Mohawk Area Rug Giveaway

There is nothing more cozy than a warm and inviting home and I am trying to transform our house into just that. The folks over at Mohawk were so kind to send me an 8X10 area rug and allow me to giveaway an additional area rug. With the weather as cold as it is the rug couldn’t have come at a better time, not to mention it has curtailed my children from sliding across the living room.

Prior to the rug getting here the space was cold and bare. We have two sofas, two chairs and an ottoman that were placed haphazardly.



Once I rolled the rug out I decided that the furniture needed a little rearranging. Not sure if the arrangement will stay this way but it works for now.

Amazing what a rug can do to warm up a space. I chose the Simpatico rug for its neutral colors. I needed something to work with the pillows and the patterned chair and this fit the bill. The rug is excellent quality and bound on the edges to prevent fraying.

We don’t own  a vacuum cleaner, I’ll need one ASAP as it is recommended for the care of the rug.
