Weekend Round-Up {1-5-13}

We're almost a week into the new year .... How are ya'll doing on your resolutions? I didn't make a whole lot of resolutions, I kinda make them up as I go. They're more like goals, I guess. I have started decluttering and it is motivating me to want to do more! The first week of 2013 has been, well, busy! We *finally* closed on our house! It has been very trying at times, but we are glad to have it behind us! 

In case you missed any posts this week, you can find them all here!

Sunday, I shared my favorite desserts from 2012.

My bloggy buddy Evelyn from My Turn For Us and myself also started a new blog hop called Let's Get Social Sunday. We had over 100 bloggers link up to our very first party and lots of co-hosts are already lined up! We have gotten so much positive feedback. Just in case you don't know, y'all ROCK!! Seriously, we are super stoked from the turnout ... and we made a bunch of new friends! Woot woot! If you're interested, be sure to join us again this Sunday - the party starts at 6 am EST - we'd love to have you drop by!

I shared the five reader favorites on Monday. These are the posts that have the most views from readers like you!

On Monday, I shared my Menu Plan for the week. I have a lot of new recipes that'll be coming to the blog soon! Check this out ....

We tried a Black Bean Nacho Burger from Hot Eats and Cool Reads - it was fabulous. You can find the recipe HERE. We will definitely make it again and the only thing I did differently, was to grill it instead of pan fry. 

Tuesday's post was All my Bloggy Friends #27. The party is still live until 11:59 pm EST tonight, if you'd like to drop by and link up!

Wednesday, I shared a recipe for Canadian Meat Pie. The flavor of this pie definitely fits the season well.

Thursday, I shared a recipe for Steak Fingers. These remind me of diner food ... and I always eat them with mashed potatoes!

Yesterday, I shared this Slow Cooker Beef Stew recipe. 

Most viewed post this week: Kit-Kat Cake

Five things I pinned this week:
Muffeletta Pinwheels from Ms. EnPlace
Crock Pot Bacon Ranch Chicken from Six Sisters' Stuff
Tuscan Chicken Stew from South Your Mouth
Orange Pancakes with Berry-Orange Sauce from Iowa Girl Eats
Orange, Lemon and Lime Citrus Cookies from Shugary Sweets

Something I learned this week: I have to keep reminding myself that everything happens in God's time. Patience is not a virtue of mine ...... But I know God's plans are way better than anything I could ever do myself. 

I hope you enjoy! Shared at these fun parties!
