Happy weekend everyone! Every weekend from now on I plan on doing a recap post of what has been happening in my life and this blog with Catchin’ Up with Karrie. Sit with me on the porch, sip some lemonade and think about all this weeks happenings.
HAPPY HOMESTEADING SERIES
We brought home our baby chicks this week and they are the cutest things ever! Chirping and peeping so much all I want to do is watch what they do all day long.
I also shared with you my reasons for why I wanted to raise chickens in this post: Happy Homesteading: Why I want to Raise Chickens.
Learning how to make my own homemade Burt’s Bees Lip Balm using natural ingredients was awesome! Plus it only cost me 12 cents per tube. Make sure and go check out the post, because I am also offering up a GIVEAWAY for a Burt’s Bees lip balm ingredients kit + tubes (hurry, giveaway ends Sunday).
