Hello everyone! I’m Stacey and I blog over at Glued To My Crafts. I’m pretty excited to be guest posting today at A Night Owl. Let me start off with introducing myself. I’m a mother to a nearly two year old boy (yikes his birthday is next weekend) who keeps me on my toes and inspires a lot of my posts. I’m also a wife to a wonderful man serving in the Air Force for 12 years now. I’m a girly-girl who loves cooking, crafting and inspiring. Ok, the last one is more of a “I hope I inspire you.” My blog is mainly about life experiences, recipes and craft creations. Everything I post can we be recreated with simple, everyday items you probably already have in your house. Even though I’m a shopaholic, I’m all about saving money and using what you have on hand. I don’t spend a lot to be crafty, and neither should you.
So let’s get down to business, shall we? Today I’m sharing with you my Cherry & Vanilla Shake recipe. I don’t know about you, but I love cherries. The price for them scares me at time, but it’s my splurge food. I remember picking cherries in my grandma’s garden growing up. I think that’s why I’m such a sucker for cherries. They bring back some good memories.
And did you know February is National Cherry Month? So not only is this recipe great for Valentine’s day, you can also whip it up in honor of National Cherry Month. PLUS, the items? Simple, ingredients! This isn’t going to break the bank or your waist line. I hope you get inspired to try it and love it as much as we do.
