Commenting Challenge!

So I am a little late to the party... but I thought I would link up with Jenna's Journey on her commenting challenge.

I am guilty of reading so many blogs and not commenting back. Shame on me! I thought this would be a great way getting to know more bloggers while sharing my blog as well.

I had meant to do this post yesterday...

What I am loving Wednesday!

(By the way, I love this idea!)

I think I have mentioned this canister set before, but I am in love with them! They match my dishes and I am definitely going to get them when we buy a house!

Last night I finally made the Pioneer Woman's Iced Coffee. To be honest, I saw the words "Sweetened Condensed Milk" in the recipe and I was SOLD!! I used fat free half and half as well as fat free SCM and it was soooo good! I had a glass this morning and it was perfect! And this is from someone who doesn't even like coffee that much!

Y'all know my love for all thing Real Housewives. I have always enjoyed the New Jersey group and so far I am loving the new season! I really don't care for the Teresa/Melissa family drama though. I am a Caroline fan definitely.

Another guilty pleasure of mine is Flipping Out. I don't know why, but I think Jeff is a hoot! And I love Jenny! So glad for another season of some major OCD meltdowns!

Ok, so I am semi-new to Twitter. I have had an account for a while, but rarely "tweet".  So if you are a "twitterer", follow me and give me a shout out! My name is 'lenorariedel'. Original, huh?

Hope you all have a great post-Wednesday!! ;)



  1. Hey, Lenora:

    I'm giving you a "shout out" from the commenting challenge. That coffee sure does look good! My kid did the GFCF (and sometimes SF) diet for almost 3 years and using vanilla soy milk, almond or ride milk is good as well.

    I also like "Housewives," but can't do the NJ crowd. Too much fighting for my taste. Once a table gets thrown, I'm done. Hehehehehe.

    Well, I have to say "hello" to 10 more nice moms (or dads) so I'll let you go. Have a wonderful day!

  2. cute blog! i'm over from jenna's journey! i just recently saw pioneer woman's ice coffee "recipe" and am planning on trying it soon! yum! :)

  3. Stopping by from Jenna's Commenting Challenge. Glad to hear Ree's Iced Coffee tastes as good as it looks. I'll have to give it a try!!

  4. Glad you are doing the blog hop! I am from Northwest Arkansas too, love the hogs, went to the u of a and love all of the housewives (Atlanta is my favorite though)! I'm going to have to look into twitter because everyone is doing it!

  5. coming over from jenna's! i live in NWA - go hogs!! :) that coffee looks soooo good!!

  6. I have been super craving iced coffee all day!! And when I stumbled upon your post, I just knew that it was a sign that I must indeed get the ingredients tomorrow. Also, my hubby and I love Flipping Out. I love that it's a show we can agree on to watch together :) BTW your family is precious!

  7. I love the canister idea and I LOVE me some Real Housewives!! I am hooked on so many of the seasons!!

  8. Ok, I'm a bad blog commenter, too. I blog stalk a million people, but I never comment. So this challenge is so great for me. Cute family!

  9. I start watching RHONJ regularly until the second season. It was honestly the watch that Bravo replayed that table flipping episode over and over again that did me in. But now I really can't get enough of the show. I think Teresa has to be my favorite, but can't help taking Melisa's side in all the family drama

  10. Popping in from Jenna's Journey :0)

    Your blog caught my attention because my brother just graduated from the marines basic training last week so I have a big soft spot in my heart for all things "marine" as a proud big sister.

    I too love most of the Real Housewives shows. I'm addicted to the OC, New Jersey, and Beverly Hills. Never got into Atlanta, DC, or Miami and NYC isn't the same without Bethenny. I'm also not a fan of the whole Tereasa and Melissa war.. and definitely not a fan of Melissa at all.

  11. Hi! I'm an Air Force wife from Australia!! We have actually been to San Clemente on our last trip to the Us in 08...we love it over there in Ca. Visiting from Jenna's challenge and now your newest follower ;)

  12. come back! i never got to see you :-(

  13. I love all of the iced coffee drinks out there - and who can go wrong with sweetened condensed milk? :-) Stopping by from Jennas
