We had a ball for our first birthday of Turn It Up Tuesday! We celebrated for two weeks and had a ball. THANK YOU to all who joined us!

Last week was our last week for the Turn It Up Tuesday Birthday/Anniversary Giveaway!!! Thanks to everyone who entered the giveaway and those who have supported us this year. We look forward to heading into a new year with some great ideas and enjoy reading some more excellent posts!

Happy Birthday TUT (1)

Colleen has won:

  • $52 Paypal cash
  • copy of ebook, “My Cookie Creation”
  • $20 Shop Credit on Life with Peanut Etsy shop

Since Colleen does not have a blog, she graciously offered all of the blog related items to another entrant.

Turn It Up Tuesdays is all about being happy, excited, energetic…and having fun! Link up your favorite posts (old or new) and meet some awesome bloggers in return! Link up your funny stories, DIY posts, recipes, mommy moments — anything at all, as long as it is family-friendly. We want to laugh, be entertained, be inspired, and have a good time!

Thanks so much to everyone that joins us each week and makes this blog hop the best that it could be!

Becky chose Hawaiian Pizza Scrolls from Just a Mum. “Hawaiian pizza is my favorite! I love this literal SPIN on it!”

IMG_8271-001Mila chose Sometimes you’ve just HAD it from Just A Touch of Crazy. “Funny and down to earth post about one of those mommy moments. And photos are just pure gold!”

Natasha also chose this post. “I completely understand where Leilani is coming from in this post. Sometimes, it’s easy to ignore what’s going on or just respond nicely and keep moving. But then there are those moments where you just snap – you can’t handle the continuous whining, calling Mommy seven million times, or holding on to you for dear life as they beg for something. I’ve had many of those days myself and I have just 1 son – I can only imagine with 2!”

six-lessons-six-months-640x423Kae chose 6 Lessons I’ve Learned in My First Six Months of Marriage from Belle Brita. “Beautiful couple that already know the fundamentals of marriage and are willing to make it work together. It’s good to see such love, compromise, and passion between two people.”

Silvie also chose this post. “I chose this post because as I was reading it I remembered my first 6 months and they were pretty much the same lessons I learned.”


Rhonda chose Mummy Man Hot dogs {Kids in the Kitchen} from Rose Uncaged. “I love creative foods for kids and what kid doesn’t love hot dogs. Being creative with foods is a great way to get kids to eat. This is a great idea for lunch or dinner.”


Mari chose 27 Delicious Caramel Recipes from Memories By the Mile. “Going through her share of such great varieties reminded me of being a young girl in elementary school and going to the candy store and buying pieces of caramel candy for a penny each. I would buy a dollars worth and finish it before I got home. Ahhhh memories! Thanks Wanda for share wink wink.”


Jillian chose Coffee Decor from Shoppe by Scout Mob from Home Is Where The Heart Is. “I chose this post because my current obession is coffee!! I have always loved coffee, but over the last couple weeks I’ve been nuts for it. If I had the extra dough, I would absolutely re-decorate my kitchen with a coffee theme, like those photos in this post.”


Cathy chose Vegetable Lasagna in Pumpkin Sauce from Budget Girl. “Chelsey has created a mouthwatering lasagna! This great dinner dish is full of flavor, good for you veggies, perfect pasta, and chicken. I am really looking forward to making this fall dish for my family!”


Stacey chose Caramel Apple Cupcakes from Mini Monets and Mommies. “My favorite thing to eat, this time of year is a good caramel apple. And these look amazing. Since the kids and I normally bake on Halloween, I might just try to make these with the kids! Thank you so much for sharing!”


The post with the most clicks is Monday Motivation from Magna Artistic Photos.
