Monthly Mix: May

Follow along my monthly mix as I explore Orlando with family and friends.  Each month I’ll bring my list to shake up our routine and try new fun things.  Here’s what I’m up to this month.

Must Try:  My list of Pinterest recipes I haven’t tried to make is at least a mile long (yours too, right?) This buckeye cake looks like a perfect place to start.  

Must Eat:  After reading Scott Joseph’s review of Capsized Kitchen I added to my OMG I have to go there list.  Amazing seafood restaurant inside a gas station?  I’m there.  

With the Kids:  I admit with just a tiny bit of shame that my 3 year old doesn’t know how to swim.  We’re in Florida so this is kind of a big deal.  We’re committed this month to starting swimming lessons and turning our little princess into a little mermaid.

Wild Card:  One of the side effects of being a craft hoarder is the leftover supplies you have after becoming fanatical about a project.  Case in point, after one bracelet making adventure I have an absurd amount of seed beads tucked away in a box.  This necklace looks like the perfect project to use up my leftovers from five years ago and make something pretty.  

How will you mix it up this month?  Let me know if you take on any of these projects.  And check back for my updates on how things turn out!
