If you live in the south, one of the things that you just cannot get away from is the monogram. I mean, there is a saying “If it doesn’t move, monogram it!” Personally, I’ve never been one that’s fallen into that trend, but I totally see how others have. Maybe it’s because the letter “G” looks weird in a lot of fonts. Recently, though, a friend asked me to make her some monogrammed earrings. I was like “whaaaa?? How???” Her reply was “You’re clever and creative. You’ll figure out how to make them.” Ooh…a challenge!

After some trial and error, I did figure out how to make DIY monogram earrings using the Silhouette machine. It’s not even difficult, once you get the hang of it.

My parents always encouraged me to try different foods.  If I didn’t like it, I didn’t have to eat it, but they were all for food experimentation.  That is one of the things that I am grateful for. Because of this, I have eclectic food tastes.  Pesto, and feta cheese, have been among my favorites, ever since I can remember.

This pesto is made from broccoli and feta cheese, rather than the traditional basil and Parmesan.  Broccoli and feta pesto pasta is a great way to sneak some veggies into your meals, too.
