Saturday Upsides: Visiting Friends

Welcome to another week of Saturday Upsides!  Don’t forget to check out this page for Saturday upsides from previous weeks.  Please join me this and every weekend to share a positive story from your life!  It’s great to take a break from “regular life” on the weekends and think of positive things to share.


I haven’t been posting a lot lately because I’ve been working madly at calorie counting and just not cooking and taking pictures nearly as much with my husband gone!  I’m still around, though, making a few great recipes here and there that I’ll eventually share. 🙂

It’s hard for me to find a “Saturday Upside” to share about my husband being away.  It’s easy for me to think of downsides about this, though, and I’ve had plenty of time to dwell on them.  Today, though, I’m going to share something positive about my husband being gone:

I get the opportunity to visit a friend of mine who lives in California. 🙂 That’s a fun trip for a girl from Ohio to make, and I didn’t think I’d be doing it so soon after getting married.  So while I miss my husband a lot, I have other opportunities available. 🙂

I actually hope to be able to update my blog while I’m in California, because I believe we plan on making some good foods. 🙂


So now it’s your turn!  Just post your “Saturday Upside” on your blog with my “Saturday Upsides” picture and a link back here, comment on my blog with a link to your post, and I’ll add a link to your blog at the bottom of mine.

Everyone’s posts will be different; please use this “Saturday Upsides” post to share your own unique thoughts, picture/s, and bright sides!  I’d love to see posts all weekend, not just Saturday.

About recipeshappen

I'm Bonnie. I'm a pharmacy technician and new wife to Bogdan. I love cooking, usually without recipes. I love good sales and coupons, but haven't quite figured out the best way to find them. I make the typical new-wife mistakes and have burned my share of cookies. I like a cold house and a hot shower all year long.
