Making Monday [#51]

August has snuck up on us so quickly around here!  It seems like just last weekend we were celebrating the 4th! But we love August because it brings some exciting things like the beginning of school for some and of course, COLLEGE FOOTBALL.  🙂  Yep.  We’re looking forward to college football at our house.  That’s how our traditional Saturday night pizza started.  We’d make pizza and eat it while watching our Boise State Broncos!!! They have a new coach this year so we’ll see what this season brings.  But good or not, we’ll still eat pizza and watch them play.


Welcome to this week’s Making Monday.

Thanks for joining us for the party.

This is a party where you can find fun new creative ideas and tasty recipes
shared by amazingly talented people.
Every Monday bloggers stop by to link up their posts and share with all you party goers.
By joining in {both bloggers and non-bloggers} you will discover new blogs,
be inspired to make something new, try a yummy new recipe,
and most importantly make new friends!
This party is hosted by Gracie and me, and your projects will be shared on both of our blogs.
We love that you’re here and we love featuring you on our social media so be sure to follow us so you can see if your post gets shared!
We also pin to our Making Monday Pinterest board and we’d love to have you follow along!
This is a place you can find projects from all the previous parties, too, so it is like a party every day!


This is what your hostesses have been up to lately:

Gracie’s been a crazy woman this summer with weddings, showers, and baby showers!
It is such a fun time to celebrate with good friends but sometimes it leaves her:
1. With bridesmaids dresses she may never where again and
2. Needed new outfits for each event.
So she fixed that by revamping this Bridesmaids dress into a Little Black Skirt.


As always, Lori doesn’t disappoint with this amazing Summer Fruit Salad with Honey Lime dressing!
It’s a light and refreshing side dish.


These are the fabulous features for this week, chosen by Gracie:

 #1.  These Gluten Free Cheesy BBQ Chicken Bites look like the BOMB!

#2.  Um, whoever thought of this is genius! Hot Chocolate Cheesecake with GayLeah Real Whipped Cream!

#3.  And a good knock off is always needed.  DIY Hoop Mirror: Anthro Knockoff.

#4.  And everyone loves stamps, check out how to Carve Your Own Stamp here!

#5.  For all you renters out there, check out how to spice up your White Box Kitchen.

We hope that you ladies are loving this party as much as we are.
We can’t get over all the awesome stuff that gets shared week after week.
But keep it up because we LOVE it!
