Beautiful bouquets from The Bouqs!

Have you heard of The Bouqs? They are an amazing online floral shop that ships gorgeous flowers straight from the source (a volcano of all places)! I love having fresh flowers in our home, so of course I jumped at the chance to get a bouquet for review.

The Bouqs

When I went to the site I was impressed by the fun bouquets to choose from. There were roses in a variety of colors, and of course, bouquets with other varieties of flowers too!

I didn’t know which to pick, so I decided to give the “Just Make it Awesome” option a go. Awesome indeed! Just look at the beautiful roses in the photo.

When they arrived they were in loose bud form, and over the course of the week they opened into full bloom. They just kept getting more and more amazing as time went on, with the colors and scent growing more intense. Truly a lovely bouquet that anyone would be happy to receive!

There’s Mother’s day special on site right now, a great time to give The Bouqs a try! I know I will be ordering again.

Disclosure: I received a free bouquet in exchange for my review. Links are affiliate links, if you shop through them you help support our crazy life.

Cook the Part

Are you ready to have some REAL fun in the kitchen? The kind of fun that involves cooking with family or friends? Cook the Part: Delicious, Interactive and Fun Team Cooking will give you all the inspiration you need.

Cook the Part Book CoverCook the Part has eight themed menus which are divided into parts so your friends can team up to create an amazing four course dinner.

Not only does this take the pressure off the host, but it makes for a unique night of cooking together. This isn’t just about making a meal, it’s about making memories!

Beyond just recipes, the author Karin Eastham, also includes chapters about preparing for the party. She lays it out so you can have the least amount of stress and the most amount of fun when your guests arrive. After all, not everyone is used to throwing a dinner party where the guests get to cook!

I loved that the recipes are laid out so it’s easy to know just who does what. Each recipe specifies if a part is the responsibility of the host, or if it will be assigned to a team. Team plans help the teams know what they need to do and where, with notes to the host to help make sure the team has what it needs. And of course, the master plan! A very helpful tool for both host and teams.

The recipes range in difficulty, some are a bit more complex than others, but don’t let that worry you! When you are cooking in a team surely you will have a nice range of cooking experience to help make it a success!

I’m in love with this truly unique cookbook and can’t wait to put it to use! The visions of team cooking with friends has me smiling.

Disclosure: I did receive a copy of Cook the Part: Delicious, Interactive and Fun Team Cooking for review purposes.

Geeking out at FanX

I’ve been a busy bee as FanX drew nearer, and yesterday was the first day of the 3 day geek fest! Oh what fun! There were many things to see and do.


Highlights were the Batmoblie, R2D2, a beautiful owl, the LEGO booth, catching glimpses of William Shatner and other Star Trek stars. I also held a scorpion, and went to the VIP loft at the Evermore booth (best view of the con ever). Many amazing people in cosplay were out and about. And the shopping… oh my! It’s a good thing I didn’t bring money with me or else it could easily have been gone in a flash.

Needless to say, DIY has taken a backseat for a bit, but now that the weather is warmed things are starting up again!
