     I've kinda hit crazy-busy mode with my other job on our condo association board since we have our annual meeting coming up at the beginning of June. Sadly that probably means only a couple new blog posts between now and then, but I'll just have to save my new ideas (including some fun summer school and activity ideas) for when I have more time. All the same, exciting things are happening for us... The kids are almost out of school for the summer, my youngest turns 3 a week from Sunday, and my husband graduates college in 3 short months!
For this week's features I chose some pasta night dinners. My family loves pasta because it's usually fairly easy to make and something most of us like (besides my 5 year old, but she tends to be the most picky out of my kids any way!) Enjoy, and be sure to link up your recipes if you'd like.

Full of flavor is this Meatball Soup with Smoked Sausage and Bow Tie Pasta from Kenarry

And for dessert this Berry Delicious Cheesecake Fluff from Dizzy Busy and Hungry!
