Awesome Life Friday #24

It's Awesome Life Friday time!  We missed you last week and can't wait to have you join the party and share your blog posts with us! 

Before we begin the party, check out what we've been up to the last couple of weeks:

Jackie shared one of her signature family recipes (ok those of us who have tasted them did a lot of coaxing, some of it possibly involving blackmail).  Give these a try - they are amazing!

Chelsea took a whole different path with her tacos - this crockpot meal is an easy and delicious way to prepare a low-fat healthy dish.

How to Travel with a Baby or Toddler & Enjoy It
Vanessa offers tips on traveling with small children without turning it into an ordeal, using her extensive experience doing just that.

Adrenne whips up a tasty frozen treat (and if you're fast, it's great for people, too).

But wait, there's more! We put out some great reviews and giveaways, too. Check these out:

Lynda tested Pinrose's line of mood-inducing scents, and we're offering a giveaway of the same sample starter kit she tried - which one is your favorite? You've got until July 6 to enter!

Review/Giveaway: ReCAP Mason Jar Caps
Vanessa checked out these brilliant pour lids for Mason Jars - and if you enter by June 29, you might just snag a wide mouth and regular mouth lid for yourself (and if you see what other Mason Jar adapters ReCAP carries, you'll want them all).

Review: Walls of the Wild Mural Decals
Amber introduced us to this lovely collection of handpainted wall murals - mix and match to create a beautiful motif all your own.

Review: Natural Goal Green Tea Extract
Our newest reviewer, Rose, explains the benefits of green tea extract, and shares her experiences with this supplement alternative to drinking it (because while we can all agree that it's good for us, not everyone enjoys the taste).

Review/Giveaway: Open Farm Dog Food
Finally, Michael reviews Open Farm Pet - a dog food brand that is sustainable, humanely sourced and grain-free.  And if you enter by July 5, your favorite dog might win a 4.5lb bag of Homestead Turkey & Chicken Recipe blend!

I hope you'll enjoy checking out some of our posts - we sure enjoyed reading all of yours!  Here are just a few we really loved:
