Fancy This Fridays #137 and Features

Hello dears! You know what I love? When sweet people leave us comments. So shout out to Christine and Kathy for commenting on last week’s post- you ladies are awesome and we appreciate you!

Life has been a little hectic lately. #isntitalways Yeah. Yeah it is. But it’s been extra hectic and extra full of blessings as of late.

Our cups runneth over.

And they’re spilling all over the floor and making a little bit of a mess.

But man, it’s a beautiful one.

So we thank you for sticking with us even when life gets a little messy. And for partying with us through it all. 🙂

So speaking of Kathy from Sparkles and a Stove and how much we adore her- we love her even more for sharing her Food Truck Style Taquito Recipe– ummmmm YUM. Anyone that knows us, knows that we love taquitos. We were raised on Mexican food. So good! And reading her post was just fun- so much about food trucks I didn’t know.

Also totally digging on Artsy VaVa‘s SUPER cute Cabinet Door Chalkboard– so simple, so cute, and “pre-framed.” Genius, lady. Genius.

And finally- an awesome Double Chocolate Brownie recipe from Debbie of Simple Joys of Home. I love that there aren’t a million ingredients. Hallelujah for a recipe that I can actually use because I already have everything in it! Done and done.

And just like always- features are pinned to our Featured on Truly Lovely Pinterest board.

Now onto this week’s party!

Fancy This Fridays Rules:

1. Please link directly to the project post on your blog.
Not the blog itself.
2. Please link only your OWN posts.
We prefer to see what YOU have been up to… not someone random.
3. Please grab a button and display it somewhere on your blog. On your sidebar, on your posts, on your linky party page. We aren’t picky!
4. We would LOVE if you would comment on at least one other link.
Just pop over and say “Hello, coming by from Truly Lovely”, or something more clever… You know…

This week we’re celebrating Pioneer Day. (July 24th) A day where we express our gratitude to those who were brave enough to make their way west so that we could live here generations later and enjoy the beautiful life we do. We hope that whether you share in the festivities or not, you have a safe and super fun weekend!

    Don’t believe everything you hear! The first time I was pregnant, hard labor began when my water broke and the baby was born just over 45 minutes later! She came so fast that she has a faint scar on her crown where she connected with the scalpel for the episiotomy! Then your Aunt Mandy came along exactly three hours after my water broke and it was a totally drug-free delivery and the doctor was cracking jokes in the delivery room! it was a rather hilarious event!

      Haha! Thanks Ruth! Now I know to expect the unexpected! Glad it worked out exactly as it did even if it wasn’t text book! 😉

  3. Thanks so much for featuring my brownie recipe. I hope you enjoy it.

    Have a great weekend. 🙂

  4. I cannot believe you’re hosting the party! I don’t think I had time to put on a real bra for the first 3 weeks! After a few days of breastfeeding a newborn that wants to eat every hour I was like “why bother, I’ll just be topless for the next year!” Thanks for hosting friend, for posting your awesome birth story! I’m so happy I FINALLY have a link to share!! LOL

    • Kassi @ Truly Lovely says:

      Well, technically Kayli is hosting the party! She’s been taking care of all the Fancy This Fridays for a few weeks now. I just pop in when I have the time to do so! 😉 And amen to avoiding real bras… just saying. haha
