{Blog Tips and Tricks} Tying Up Loose Ends

HEY NOW friends!
Hope you’re having a great start to your week! 
With my big announcement last Friday, {I’ve} been able to get things done on the blog that I’ve been meaning to get done! #wootwoot
And it feels goooooooood.
First off, my linky parties tab there on top ^^^ it’s FINALLY updated ya’ll!
It’s something that has been begging to be updated since I made it about a year ago #outdated and even tho I saw it as something I HAD to get done, it always took a back seat.
Please feel free to use it! 
I only ask that you do link back to my blog. To be honest I haven’t even had time to go thru it and add recent link ups that have just started, so please feel free to send them to me. If your link up party isn’t on the list, please feel free to leave me a comment below or even email me and I will be happy to add it!
Also check out my Recipes and

Tutorials pages!
Aren’t they pretty?!
If I feature you on my blog you will be added to this “directory” in the respective categories, so that means even more exposure for you! THANK YOU to all of you that do link up to my weekly Sunday FUNday parties! I appreciate it so much! I love all the inspiration I get!
Are you wondering how to make your own {Pages} look like mine?
Since I do believe sharing is caring, I’ll let you in on {my secret}.
I received an email from my lovely friend Tammie who blogs at Living With My Blessings and she shared an awesome tutorial from Miss Information on how her pages were set up! This was exactly what I’ve been meaning to do, just wasn’t sure how I wanted to and when I’d make time to figure it out. 
The tute was extremely helpful and Cassie went to work!
Love it!
Let me know if you use the tutorial and how you like it! Thanks so much Tammie for passing on the info to me!
I’ve received some questions about past posts,
things I’ve written about that I was meaning to expand on, and then life just kept happening, and things have been left unexplained. 
So with that said, today I’m answering a few of those questions.
Tying up the loose ends if you will, hence the name of this post.
{Hence} I hate dislike that word.
Seems to subconsciously be my new fav word tho #boo
One of thee most asked about pictures/incidents is the pic below:
I wrote about it here.
Story behind it:
My Mom got “pulled over” in front of her house.
She literally got out of her car to an officer with his lights on parked behind her, telling her to remain in her vehicle.
To make a long hilarious now story short, he issued her a ticket.
My Momma forgot to pay it or show up for the court date that was scheduled.
So BAM! 
My Momma was almost a wanted fugitive.
Thank goodness we came across the above letter, and she had exactly one day to pay it before she would have had a warrant out for her arrest.

Dear Readers, 
I am not. I repeat am not preggers. #sigh #bittersweet 
All the “secretive-ness” in my blog posts were in regards to Nate’s job change.
At the time, I really could not share it, because we wanted to make sure everything was all set before we jumped the gun.
Ube = A purple yam
Ube ice cream = dancing taste buds
Macapuno Ube ice cream = Ube with coconut strings in it
Pan de Sal = Filipino bread
Macapuno Ube ice cream + Pan de Sal should be a crime!
