Mini Cake Challenge – July

Those of you who are familiar with the video game Portal will probably recognize this month’s mini cake! I had purchased some rhubarb last week, so of course I had to make a cake. (And not just any cake, THIS cake.) The inside is classic yellow butter cake with strawberries and rhubarb and it is…

This Week I …

Drove across the country. Went to a wedding. Climbed some rocks. Picked blueberries.  Went swimming. Played with lots of cute babies. Ate too much food. Took tons of photos.  And most of all, thoroughly enjoyed being home. Vacations are wonderful.

Banana, Peanut Butter & Chocolate Vegan Ice Cream

Kaylah from The Dainty Squid just posted a super yummy recipe for Banana, Peanut Butter & Chocolate Vegan Ice Cream! With a name like that, who could resist trying it out? And I had all of the ingredients already, so that was a plus. This ice cream is super easy to make, and oh so…

Orange Juice and Honey Roasted Peanuts

Once upon a time there was a young couple who was very much in love. One day, after getting out of work early because it was the 4th of July, they went to the boy’s house to decide what they wanted to do for the evening. Upon arrival, the young man noticed a package sitting…

A lot of people ask me about my favorite place to shop: the Goodwill Clearance Center. I seriously love that place! And with the $1 a pound price tag, you really can’t go wrong! I’ve found some great fabric in there. (Since most of my sewing projects are upcycled from old clothes!) And if you…

Three Months Old

My little man is growing up so fast, but he’s still my sweet little baby. He just seems so tiny to me, I guess because Juniper is so much bigger (and crazier) than him. But he really is getting quite big. I absolutely love when he giggles, which he’s been doing more and more lately.…

$2 Dress Restyle

I bought this dress in the clearance section at Ross for $2. How could I pass THAT deal up? It was a bit too small for me, but I just knew it would make an adorable new dress for Juniper. I shortened the skirt about 4 inches, and scaled the top down using one of…

This Week I…

So I’ve decided to bring back my Weekly Review feature, only I’m going to do things a little differently this time. Instead of taking one photo each day and making a cute collage, I’m just going to do a weekly wrap up post of the things I’ve done that particular week. Because let’s face it,…
