Echo, echo, echo: The Best of May

May was another speedy month, but an exciting one! We made the decision to sell our house in search of one with a little more space for the someday-brothers/sisters of Little K, plus we want a little more room for entertaining and hosting overnight guests. We spent almost all of May putting furniture in storage, painting, cleaning, peeling wall paper… The house is officially done now though, and officially on the market! We’re getting lots of showings (and so far Little K is handling his displaced after-daycare time well!) and E and I are crossing our fingers that this is a quick process! Well, not too quick. We have to figure out where we’re going to move!

You didn’t hear as much from me during May as you normally do, and if I’m being honest, things probably won’t get loads better for June. Here are the little “projects” on my to do list:

  1. Help get things at work back to normal and fully staffed.
  2. Sell our house.
  3. Find a place to live.

You can count on a couple best of moments though. And, although May was so quiet around here I could hear an echo, I did have fun. Here, let me prove it to you.

Best of the best: This has to be the garlic press giveaway I did for the Garlic Bread post. The recipe was easy and quick and the garlic choppers rock my socks, man. I love ’em! (Hope the three winners do too!)

Good Riddance: The Best of April

I’m hoping for a sunburn. Yep, I think summer is finally here. I’ve gotten myself in trouble for saying that last month; I even put the snow blower and shovels away only to have one of the worst snow storms dump on us the next day. But, I’m going all in this time. I’m blogging from the middle of my backyard, basking in the sunshine, and planning on a nice pink glow. 

Little K is smartly dressed though. Sun bonnet, shade, long sleeves.

April wasn’t all bad though. In between the unseasonably cold temps and miserable snow storms, we had some pretty awesome best of moments here at Krystalcooks.com

Best of the best: Asparagus with Parmesan. Flying solo as the one and only total package last month!
