WOW! You all love Trader Joe’s and if you don’t have one by you, I am sorry!! But this post might still be helpful for you. I know several of you bring a cooler and drive hours to get some shopping done. Over 500 of you replied to my story on Instagram sharing your favorites! I complied the top recommended items and also what I buy.
There is also Trader Joe’s Shopping List for you, a Free Printable. Read it all HERE–
SO many of you requested that I post this recipe to my blog so you can print it out or “pin” it to Pinterest for later. This side dish is honestly my favorite thing that Kevin makes. We have made it for years. I don’t know why I never shared it before! Trust me it is fast, healthy and so tasty! Check it out HERE
Also if you missed it yesterday I shared a complete guide to purchasing bamboo woven shades and fabric roman shades. Linked a variety of sources and shared an easy way to make a bamboo shade be black-out. Read that post HERE
I wasn’t planning on blogging today or even blogging about this recipe. BUT I had so many direct messages and emails asking me what the recipe was again. I had shared it once on Instagram Stories. And then I thought you might want this recipe for your July 4th parties! TRUST ME….everyone will love it. Even kids. It is so easy. Not my typical Paleo recipe- but a really great appetizer.

We added a light to the shed! It was in the plans, but I the one I wanted was out of stock. I realized we had a perfectly good light that we could make work in our basement! Check it out on todays Friday Favorites!
Also Target has a sale on some of my favorite things and Anthropolgie too!
And shared the trick about the strawberries- how to triple the life of your strawberries!

I had so many requests for a recipe that I posted to my Instagram Stories so I included it on today’s Friday Favorites. Also have you checked out TJMaxx online? I found a replacement pillow that is half the price of my all-time favorite pillow. And we need help picking a chair for TWO readers- come and cast your vote!
I did answer a reader design question on the blog today rather than on here. And I am open to taking YOUR design question! Reply to this email by the end of the weekend with your question and photo and will answer you here with my blog posts.
I have been looking at my own home and I realized there are things that really bug me! We rearranged our family room, we put the love seat under the window by the fireplace and mounted the tv. The lazy boy (my husband can’t live without) this room gets a lot of use, it’s where my fam hang out. Something feels off. Oh btw I’m going to put up white panels for the window treatments.
I meant to get this post up yesterday. But if you read on my social media (Instagram) I found out a my best friend from high school took her life. I was just so sad about it. Sad I lost touch. Sad for her family. Sad she lost sight of the fun, full-of-life person she was. She inspired me to share that YOU are not alone. If you feel alone or drowning please reach out to someone or to ME. I would love to talk to you. Addiction and depression are real things. God loves you and wants you to find help.
I received several messages from women in my community on Instagram saying they too felt alone and sad. I so wish I could connect everyone together. I told several of them to subscribe to the email list so they can join our private Facebook Group and reach out- maybe someone lives by you and wants to go shop for twinkle lights, bake bread, start a bookclub or just know that someone is close who shares your same passions. So if you are not there- make sure to join our Facebook Group HERE. Really the “nesters” as they coined themselves (kind of obsessed with that) are so supportive and awesome to help each other.
Find that community that fills your cup!
Email Subscriber Design Question-
Laura wanted to know what lamps I thought would look good on her nightstand.
I think in a small room with small nightstands that wall sconces look best! You could do my light trick on any sconce. OR I found THESE that are a sconce with a plug. I like the black with your bed and the little accent of gold is nice too.
Today on the blog I shared a couple of my QUICK- HEALTHY Meals along with my favorite things from Trader Joe’s! Find the post HERE.
I am here with a surprise Saturday post! I have several of you asking for my Paleo Stuffing Recipe that I promised to share. I originally made this recipe when I shared my Paleo Sweet Potato Casserole….but it took several recipe tests to get it just right. So I can finally share it! I even tested it out on my picky mom and brother when they were in town and they LOVED it. They said they were going to make it at their Thanksgiving Dinner.
I also linked my popular Pumpkin Crunch Cake, Broccoli Salad and Sweet Potato Casserole on todays post!
PS- I added a new feature to my recipe that shows the calories and more info! (I will be converting over all my recipes now).
Have a great Saturday friends.

Let me start off by saying I occasionally share recipes on Nesting with Grace. So if you are new I hope you enjoy them. But if recipes are not your thing, I am working on splitting up my email list and creating a way for you to tell me what type of posts you want sent to your in-box! So you only see what you want in your in-box.
But today I shared a Double Chocolate Chip Peppermint Cookie Recipe. It is Paleo and Gluten Free! And AMAZING! I think I ate three yesterday and that was me trying not to eat any.
I shared a really cute way to package them as a gift too!
There are 13 other bloggers linked at the end of my post sharing Christmas Cookie Recipes too! So pop over to see what they have to share.
