Let’s start with the biggest news of all, in case you missed the news… we’re getting a puppy!! We’re ridiculously excited and can’t wait to have her home with us permanently. Just over a week until she comes home! The Mr and I keep joking that we’re kind of crazy to do this since our house is already full and very active… between three kids and three cats, there’s a lot going on! But what’s another mouth to feed, right?! She’ll get an enormous amount of love and make our days that much more exciting and memorable. It’ll be interesting to see how the cats react. They’ve been around my parents dog, so I know they don’t hate dogs, which is obviously a big plus. Keep an eye out for updates! I’ sure there will be a ton of them. You can follow along on IG: here and here!

I’ve been doing a ton of spring cleaning this year, one room at a time. Major purging and cleaning. A few things I’ve learned in the process… Mr Clean sponges are not always the best choice. But when that doesn’t work, Goo Gone does. They’re both wonder products though. They each have their uses. I just wish the sponges didn’t fall apart so easily! They’re magic, but they should really last longer than they do. Then they’d be extra magical.

Also… I apparently need to start keeping an inventory of my supplies. I have SO much of various things, which of course is a good thing because I won’t need to buy them for a while, but I never remember that. For example, glue sticks. We’ll use them, but I have SO many… probably because they were on sale and I bought large packages. Oops! I have a good stash of holiday sparklers too. They’re so cheap, I always find myself buying a package or two when they’re back on shelves. I could go a few years without buying any and we’d be all set. Seriously. Someone remind me this year, no glue sticks or sparklers please!

I’ve been craving lemon since Christmas was over. I have a feeling that won’t change until it’s apple season. So, expect to see lots more lemon goodness in the coming months!

I’m a sucker for a good bar. But, instead of making classic lemon bars, I decided to transform my favorite blondie bars into super gooey lemon blondie bars. A nice pop of lemony flavor everyone will love!

These are ridiculously easy to whip up. They literally take 5 minutes to prep.

Soft and gooey homemade lemon blondie bars, bursting with lemon flavor! These bars are an absolute must make for all lemon fans! Make sure these are part of your spring and summer dessert plans!
