The Guy Behind the Blog :: November 2016

The Guy Behind the Blog - Ry tells as much as we can squeeze out of him.

Once a month I talk about what’s going on in my life at that moment with Currently posts, and then the kids get a monthly post where they get to shine; this post is where Ry gets to take over for a day each month. Hosted by Betsy and Laura, TGBTB linkup is on the last Thursday of each month if you’d like to join up too! (They have since ended the linkup..) Plus it means I get to spotlight this amazing man I have been blessed to share my life with for the past 15 years 😉

In case you are new around here: Ry and I were high school sweethearts, married after I graduated high school, he enlisted in the USAF, and our first kiddos arrived 4 years after that. Our oldest is 6.5, our daughter is 3.5, and our youngest a little more than a year and a half.

The Best Gift I’ve ever received – Twas the Week of Christmas

Twas the Week of Christmas, and all through the house,
there was chaos, malarky, and a screaming spouse.
But even through all of that, a blog post was coming,
as a challenge, a promise, keyboard keys drumming.

Hosted by a fellow Peony Kimberly,
Emma stretched her fingers quite nimberly.
Regular posting was not a strength,
But we’re on the same wavelength.

Deviled Eggz

No Fail Deviled Eggs - Easy and yummy, always a hit at gatherings. | www.emmmmerz.com

No holiday or potluck is complete without devilled eggs. They just are so easy to eat and absolutely delicious.
Every single deviled egg I have eaten has been slightly different, and I think that is one of my favorite things about them. They range from the plain mayo&mustard to pesto to bacon to avocado to curried. This is the recipe I (mostly) follow when I make ours. (more…)
