Rise and Shine is my way of starting the day with you – almost as if we’re chatting over a hot cup of coffee or tea! I share my favorite deals of the day, highlights from yesterday, and anything else that might help you save time, money or energy. Published in the morning on Monday through Friday  – as I’m able. 

Good afternoon! I had a rough yesterday, I was overwhelmed, grumpy and driving the struggle bus. Can you relate? I shared about it over on Instagram (would love to have you follow me!). After a short nap, a walk to see the sunset and sitting on my porch with a glass of wine – the day ended on the right note – thankfully. I woke up feeling better today. The weather helps – it’s absolutely GORGEOUS here in the Pacific Northwest – supposed to be 69 degrees today (with sunshine for a week). I’m so grateful!

I did move all my seed starts out to my raised garden beds – and I left them outside last night because it was going to stay above freezing. I have some growth when it comes to my arugula, microgreens and some lettuce. Hoping this sunshine brings more green to the surface!

Published in the morning on Monday through Friday  – as I’m able. 

Good afternoon friends! How are you doing – I’m sorry Rise and Shine is so tardy today. It’s been a hectic morning and I’m afraid I’m just a bit behind in things. We got our FIRST shipment of clothes for Ramona Rose last night and we had our first live with them. This morning we were blessed to ship out of lot of goodies to customers – thank you for supporting our small business! You can shop the new clothing here there is still a lot of clothing and new products coming in. We are just getting started. . .boxes of new goodies will be coming within the next week.

The sun is shining and I’m hoping for a slower-paced afternoon of maybe working out in the yard! I have a lot of weeding to do and the weather is supposed to really warm up – 69 degrees tomorrow! WAHOO! I know I owe you a garden bed post – I hope to work on it soon, I’m very sorry for the delay.

I’m really struggling with grocery ordering – anyone else? I login to the Fred Meyer site and the first available pick-up is always in the next ad cycle! I am worried, without knowing the ad prices for that time – what I’ll be paying when I pick up. I don’t mind waiting a week to pick-up but the changing ads is really been a struggle for me. How are you getting groceries these days?

Are you planning to do a ham for Easter this year? This Slow Cooker Spiral Ham is one of my favorite ways to prepare ham – and it’s gotten tons of terrific reviews from readers who have tried it! It pairs well with my Grandma’s roll recipe – one of the very first I shared on this blog. What are your plans for Easter?

Good morning! How was your weekend? We had a pretty chill weekend – we went on a couple walks and for a bike ride.

We have boxes of new inventory coming this week – so stay tuned! Join our Ramona Rose FB group for the latest updates.

On Saturday I made a big batch of my favorite Southwest Quinoa salad – it hit the spot! I haven’t made it in a long time and we really enjoyed it. I made the quinoa in the Instant Pot (just use the rice button) and put it in the fridge overnight so it was ready to roll when I diced up all the peppers, onions, etc. So yummy and a great salad to keep in the fridge.

One of my favorite things to do – especially in the early morning – is watch the birds out my living room window! I just ordered these Wild Wings Cedar Blue Bird Box House which is on sale for $17.98. This jumps between around $35 and $17.98 – this is the BEST price it’s been on Amazon. This is a really nice bird box house – with great reviews. We have one of these on our front porch (from the previous owners) and it’s the bird’s favorite! Can’t wait to get a few more around our house.

Good morning! I’m grateful to see March behind us but apprehensive about what April has in store for us – right? Today’s April Fool’s Day so watch for those jokes! Yesterday the kids had an electronic-free day and they built an epic fort downstairs. It’s memories like this that I’m grateful for as we settle more and more in at home. They read Harry Potter out loud and colored pictures – I think it was good for EVERYONE.

The weather yesterday was crazy here in the Northwest. One minute it was sunny and the next minute a major hail storm! Feels a little bit like my emotions during this time stuck at home – right?

Yesterday I uploaded a bunch of new tumblers and mugs to our Ramona Rose Co Boutique! There are lots of awesome items on the site and all at great prices! Head over and treat yourself or send it to someone you love!
