Project Life 2013

The last time I did Project life was in 2010, and I did not finish it. I'm ready to attempt it again for 2013 with a little bit more laid back approach. Back in 2010, I had intended on taking a photo a day and that just did not work out.

This year i'm not pre-planning anything, just going to fill in each week with what I have.  I purchased the Project Life Core Kit - Clementine Edition and Project Life Month Dividers - Clementine Edition for 2013.  I'm super excited to get back into this way of scrapbooking!

Mrs. Smith's Signature Deep Dish Pies Review & Giveaway

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Mrs. Smith's for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine.


Mrs. Smith has a new line of delicious DEEP DISH Pies just in time for the holiday season.  There is nothing like the smell of Apple or Pumpkin  pie baking to make you feel good.

The four Mrs. Smith's Signature Deep Dish pies varieties available are:


  • Signature Deep Dish Apple Pie with Caramel Sauce
  • Signature Deep Dish Cherry Pie with Butter Fudge Sauce
  • Signature Deep Dish Peach Pie with Cream Cheese Icing
  • Signature Deep Dish Pumpkin Pie with Cream Cheese Icing

I was lucky enough to get try each of the four new pies.  My family absolutely loved each one.  What is really cool about these pies is that you can customize them with a topping packet and sauce packet.  Super yummy, and you have a bit of choice on how to eat it.  I think a family favorite for sure was the Cherry pie that comes with butter fudge sauce.  Seriously?  Cherry pie AND chocolate.  A favorite for sure with the kids!  Apple and pumpkin are a staple of course.  Caramel sauce with the apple is to die for.  We aren't bit cream cheese people, so only a part of my family customized there pie with that option.  It is great to have options!  The peach pie was also super yummy and comes with a cream cheese icing.  

If you are a picture person and love Pinterest, Mrs. Smith has a Pinterest account you can follow.  You can also join them on Facebook to stay up to date.
