Happy 2nd Birthday Izzy!

On Born Day:

1st Birthday:

And Today!

Happy Birthday my sweet Izzy!

Second Try

So I scrapped the first cookies and tried again. I’m very pleased! They aren’t perfect, but they’re cute, so I’m happy, and proud to serve them! And Izzy helped this time. If you consider using placemats to slide across the floor, pulling out all of your tupperware, and making a milk puddle to stomp in…

Throwing in the Towel

I am a DIY’er, to the core.  I won’t pay anyone to do anything that I can (reasonably) do for myself.  With that said, I’ve realized that for every DIY’er, and crafter, there sometimes comes a moment when you understand that all crafts aren’t for you.  Yep. Today, for the first time, I attempted to…

Vlogging : Cruising!

Ok, so first, the weird angle is because I used my cell phone to film this, and holding it, instead of finding something to prop it against, like a normal person. Second, I realize that my voice sounds really deep and raspy in this, lol! I am SO, SO tired behind only getting like 4-5…

Preparing, Again

So, I’m the the thick of preparing for Izzy’s birthday, on the 16th! We’ll be having a little party for her on the 16th, and of course, I’m going totally DIY with her decor! The theme that I settled on is Owls & Polka Dots, in a color scheme of pink, brown, and green! I…

Gorilla Bread

By popular demand, here is the recipe for Gorilla Bread!  This is a Paula Deen Recipe, so unless you have major discipline when it comes to sweets, I wouldn’t recommend making this unless you have guests or something coming! Here is a link to the original recipe, but I’ll post it here, with my notes…

Cerealgate *Updated*

So. My child is crazy. Really. She comes running to me, and says “nassy nose, mommy. Tissue”. So, ok. I get the tissue, and pick her up to look at her nose. Looks clean. I tilt her back, to look inside. O_o. She had a lucky charm cereal piece in her nose. Not the marshmallow…

Tuesday Randoms

So! My Thanksgiving dinner went really well!  All of my dishes turned out well, and aside from a slight turkey-juice-spilling-on-the-bottom-of-the-oven-causing-flames-and-a-kitchen-full-of-smoke incident, there were no mishaps!  The menu went as planned, except for the replacement of the pound cake with carrot cake cupcakes.  I was so busy that I neglected to get all but THE most…

Hosting Thanksgiving Dinner

It’s about to start getting very busy around here! I’ve got everything I “think” I need for my Thanksgiving tablescape. Except…well, the tables. We’ll pick those up on Wednesday, along with the chairs. We picked up the carpet cleaner today, and I’m going to do that when Izzy wakes up from her nap. We’ll put…
