Have you ever had a day or a week or maybe even a month where it seemed everything possible was going to go wrong?? That’s been our world for about the past two weeks or so. It started off with Princess P & I both being sick for over a week. Then during that same week, I found out my bank checkcard had been hijacked & someone had tried to buy a Zappos giftcard of all things. Then it all came to a head this past weekend when we found out the window in our daughter’s room has been leaking & caused water damage to her chest of drawers & really bad mildew and wood stains on the carpet!! So our weekend was spent buying new bedroom furniture & yesterday was spent having the carpet replaced & construction guys out trying to determine what needs to be done to the window!!
So due to our weeks of when it rains, it pours, I am a day late getting this post up!! My partner this month for the Surprise Recipe Swap was Trisha from My Hobbie Lobbie! Not only does she cook & bake but she also creates some amazing party supplies!! Trisha has an extensive selection of delicious recipes to pick from and when I saw the Lemon Bars she had made, I knew that was the recipe I wanted to try! I’ve been dying to make lemon bars since the weather got warmer so it was the perfect choice!!
