7. FUN AND INTERESTING FACTS: What is Allodoxaphobia? What was the last letter of the alphabet to be added?

8. MUST READ DECORATING POSTS: You don’t have to be a designer to have a beautiful home. But you should know the designer’s secrets! I’ve broken down all the secrets and important decorating concepts into easy-to-understand, doable, and repeatable steps.

9. CULINARY CORNER: French Bread Pizza is an easy, fun, and delicious meal! Preheat the oven to 400°. Put 4 TBS of butter and 2 garlic cloves that are finely diced in a small bowl and microwave until the butter melts. Set aside. Cut 1 loaf of French bread lengthwise, put it on a rimmed baking sheet, and brush the butter mixture over the bread. Bake for 10 minutes to lightly toast the French bread, and remove it from the oven. Spread 1 cup of marinara sauce on the bread and sprinkle it with 1 1/2 cups of grated mozzarella cheese. Top with pepperoni slices, 2 TBS parmesan cheese, and a dash of red pepper flakes. Bake for another 10-15 minutes until the cheese melts. Enjoy!

10. IT’S TIME TO: Do you love hydrangeas? It’s no wonder they are such popular flowers. Make sure to see How To Plant Hydrangeas In Planters And In The Ground. Now is the time to plant them.

Answer to # 7: Allodoxaphobia is the fear of other’s opinions. We should all try to get over this phobia! In 1524, the letter J was the last letter of the alphabet to be added. Before that, the letter i was used for both letters.
