two more ladies i love

Let me introduce to two more fantastic ladies. Grab a warm bev, snuggle up with a cozy blanket and read on...

Hey there! I'm Ashley. I love to create delicious gluten free & vegan desserts and recipes. You can buy mixes at Sugar Mama Bakeshop and they make perfectly sweet little gifts for anyone on your list! (Have you thought about teacher gifts? Best friend? Your grandma? The mailman?)
Baked goods make such a lovely gift and especially if you know anyone with a restricted diet (no gluten, dairy, eggs, soy, etc) I can promise you they will be thrilled to have holiday sweets they can actually enjoy :)
I am so thankful for so much right now it's crazy, but here's my top 3:
*A safe, warm place to call home. It isn't our first choice of a place to call home but I'm incredibly thankful for it. You can read more about that here if you're interested.
*Community. I have found such a wonderful, encouraging and supportive community through blogging and I'm extremely thankful for it!
*My sweet wonderful little family. This is Lily's first trip to the zoo... She's clearly not nearly as excited about it as mom & dad.

Oh yeah, because I love Carina's blog and you obviously do too... I'm offering 25% off your order with the code MERRYCHRISTMAS. Woo! OR get free shipping when you order 8 or more mixes! Just enter OVER8 at checkout! Also message me if you need them individually gift wrapped and I'll hook you up :)

esther at lovingly thrown together
Hi there Punk, Pumpkin, Peanut readers! How much do you love Carina and her little guys? I just love being a sponsor over here. It makes my heart happy to see my little button over yonder.

My name is Esther and I blog over at Lovingly Thrown Together. I’m a 23-year-old wife to sizzling hot dude who is the kindest soul on the planet and the mama of one little guy we call Jake-the-Snake who is 14-months-old and keeps me on my toes.

My blog is where I share the good, the bad, and the ugly about being an amateur at this whole housewife thing. I cook, I clean, and I craft… but mostly I play because it’s all my little stinker likes to do. I just try to keep it real.

This Thanksgiving, I am praising God for:

1. My son's feet. Why? So many reasons. Three of them are: he laughs when I bite them and I love his laugh. He uses them to walk to me to give me an open mouth, wet kiss. He kicks them when he's happy.

2. My husband's faith in God.  I'm so grateful to have a guy by my side who considers God before he considers me. Coming from a background where spirituality is for women, I consider myself blessed to be married to a man who isn't afraid to lift his hands to the Lord. 

3. My refrigerator. Every time I open it I remember how fortunate I am to not have to fear that my family will go hungry. 

I hope you’ll hop on over to my corner in blog-land and check out the story of a girl discovering motherhood and domesticity. Oh and, just for good measure, you can also find me on FacebookTwitter, and Pinterest


  1. thanks for sharing these blogs! headed over there now :)

    hope your week is going well! xo
