Tuesday Tunes: Summer Music Mix

“I realize that I will never fully understand the millions of bizarre ways that music brings people together.”

Putting together this playlist made me reflect on what a huge impact music has had on my life. Hear a song & it can bring me right back to a place & time from my life, like taking a ride in a time machine.

Rosemary & I have some pretty big decisions to ponder over this next week and we are taking some time to reflect and get in tune (no pune intended) with ourselves. If you see me around Nashville, most likely, I will have a coffee in hand, writing in my journal or reading a book. We all do need that special time.

I hope you all get a chance to travel, discover & get back to yourself this summer.  Here’s some music for the most wonderful journey of all….
After all “Every mix tape tells a story. Put them together, and they add up to the story of life.”

On a side note:  The quotes above are from Rob Sheffied’s wonderful book, “Love is a Mixtape.” Pretty please with a cherry on top, read it! So incredible.

Always Love,

Bethany Rose

Homemade Pizza Rolls

Sure, we know ordering a pizza over the phone is easy enough, but we wanted to switch things up and see what would happen if we paired our favorite pizza toppings with crescent rolls. We couldn’t have been more excited about how our experiment turned out!

We gathered some of our favorite fresh fruits, meats, and veggies from the grocery and chopped them into very small pieces so that they could easily fit on the triangle-shaped crescent roll. It was so fun testing out new food combinations on each roll.

Here are some of our favorite topping combinations:
-Mozzarella, pineapple, bacon bits, tomato sauce
-Feta, spinach, olives, tomatoes, olive oil
-Mozzarella, spinach, peppers

Once you have your toppings selected and placed on each individual triangle, roll the crescent roll up beginning with the larger end. We baked our rolls in the oven at 350 for 15 minutes, and they turned out so delicious!

We did learn a few things while creating these miniature pizza treats:
-A few toppings go a long way- remember that your toppings will need to fit within the inside of the roll, so you do not want to overload.
-If you feel that the toppings you have chosen weigh a bit, we suggest using two triangle pieces to “double wrap” your roll. Better safe than sorry!

Thanks for letting us share our pizza roll snacks with you!

XOXO!

DIY: Memory Book

HAPPY FATHER’S DAY! Today could not be a more perfect day to celebrate the father in your life. I wanted to share with you today a quick and fun way to make a memory book  for someone special whether it be your father or your best friend. It’s a great way to express your love for them and also allows you to express your creative side, too!

I purchased my scrapbook at the local craft store as a pre-built scrapbook created by K & C Company. The pages are all unique and bound into the book so that helped me save on time and money.

I gathered old photos and extras I could use for added detail on the pages to make each page truly one-of-a-kind. You can choose to add whatever you like to your pages such as old ticket stubs, magazine clippings, newspaper articles– the sky’s the limit!

When I began this memory book, I focused on NOT forcing myself to be the “average” scrapbooker and to let myself be completely expressive. My pages are filled with scraps of paper and fun objects that helped bring each to life.

Don’t be afraid to doodle on your pages if you’d like! Make each page as personal as you’d like, and it’s completely up to you to put in as much time and detail as you want.

And don’t worry about making a mess, it happens! Allow yourself the space to get in your creative zone. I think it’s extremely important that you show what you feel inside in this memory book of yours! Below are a few excerpts from my scrapbook I made as a memory book of my father. He was a very special man who loved everyone so much! I had so much fun spending my nights putting together a book of memories of him.

I hope you have a great time making your own book and gifting it to that special someone if you so choose.

Love,

Rosemary
