Cheers not Jeers Episode 22

Eat, Drink & Be Mary

You may recognize this week's Cheers not Jeers recipient as our in post [ad]venture sponsor this month. Not only is she sponsoring this month, but she has a great blog as well.  Meet Mary from "Eat Drink and be Mary". Mary is a Southern bred blogger who has successfully mastered the art of cooking. Each recipe I read is drool inspiring. Don't believe me? Check out these Orange Supremesicle Cookies that just want to jump in your belly. I mean, I'm sure her man (who blogs) would agree with me! 
Stop by and give Mary a warm hello! 
Who will you be spreading cheer with this week?

As bloggers, more importantly as women, it is often easy to get caught up in the strains and drains of life. Lets face it, life can just flat out SUCK at times. And I don't know about you, but I don't know anyone who doesn't love a sweet compliment or a simple thumbs up thrown their way. As motivation to spur a little female bonding around the "interwebs" I introduce to you this weekly link up "Cheers not Jeers"

This is your chance to build up some of your favorite women and showcase their talent through your blog and spread a little sisterly love.
How it works:
  • Every Wednesday join in the link up by including "Cheers" about your favorite bloggers. These are bloggers who spur your creativity, touch your heart, or keep you sane laughing.
  • Post a small shout out or devoted post to your blogger loves, creating more community between each other, while posting a link to their blog in your post so others many be inspired.
  • After linking up, find a new face, visit a new blog, introduce yourself and send them a "cheer" 
Highly Encouraged:
There are no specific "rules" about following certain individuals in the link up, but just strongly encouraging women to seek out one another and offering praise instead of the negativity we can often see floating around the world wide web. I will personally visit each blog in the link up to see what an awesome impact this is making.

Cheers not Jeers

As I sit and write this post I am overcome with emotions of thanks, joy, peace and mostly a heart full of gratitude.

As we celebrated the resurrection of our Savior, I could not have felt more at home without being "home". Everything was absolutely perfect. The dinner was delicious, as it was prepared by an actual chef…yes my friends are awesome. Rosemary lamb, and fingerling potatoes with roasted brussel sprouts.  Corn Hole "Civil War" was without a doubt the entertainment of the evening. All participants had their own version on the rules. Aka North Vs South. Sweet tea and sangria were flowing while we watched the little ones run around the back yard and giggle with innocent laughter. And the cheesecake…oh my YUM. I just had to eat two slices to prove to myself it was simply the best cheesecake I have ever tasted.
But most importantly it was about the fellowship with some of the most tender hearted people I've been graced with.


It makes me want to cry thinking of the kindness in these peoples hearts. Seriously, I wish I could share them with you. They would drop anything in a heartbeat for us with nothing but servant hearts and no further requests or favors. Sound familiar? Yes, it sounds like family.


It came to my realization, well with a little help of a cute and catchy phrase, but these people are our New York family. Family doesn't have to possess the same DNA or quirks, family are those who invite you into their home, and hearts.
So, so thankful for this years Frieaster…it was as perfect as any Easter could be.

1 Peter 1:3
Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ! In his great mercy he has given us new birth into a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead... (NIV)

Catch up with one of the sweetest bloggers!

Oh Happy Wednesday! I'm trying to stay positive as I look out my window and see a fresh layer of snow…really Mother Nature?

This week I'm excited to share with you one of my favorite bloggers who I have been following for quite some time!
Cheers not Jeers Episode 21
And So I Did


Meet Madi from "And So I Did"
Madi has been a blogging friend since the very beginning when I started this space. If she lived anywhere close, I know we would would be the best of friends. But since she lives in Arkansas, we just have to dream. Madi and her new hubby just bought their first house! I'm living vicariously through them as we are no longer house hunting. I get so excited each time Madi has a house post, even if it's not always roses and butterflies. I have loved getting to see Madi's blog grow and she is definitely a loyal blog friend, as I'm sure she would be in real life! Madi is also starting her own adventure in the bakery world. I'm SO excited to support and see what creations she makes!
Now let me stop gushing and let you RUN on over to meet my Madi!
