I have never done this and often I get told I am not very romantic, well after reading O magazine last month I found this recipe and thought I should do something special for peter peter pumpkin eater. Well, it was a breakfast-in-bed kinda moment and I pulled it off. It was delicious and a total surprise for him_ win win!

Did you know.. [as seen on the Nate Berkus show]

that you can write on plates with a permanent marker to make messages or greet guests.. (yes it does come off with soap and water). I really like this idea because we have a pathetic plate wall.

so what if.. [I am sad.. and you have been warned]

SO what if you lost your best friend.. out of no where today? Well this was a reality to my sister today. Her best friend, her roommate from college died. She was 24 years old. We are not sure of all of the details but do know it was a seizure. In any circumstance this news has put me at a stand still all day. What would you do? If my sister died today I would be speechless. Although I don't say it enough my sister is my best friend and I love her dearly. If anything were to happen to her I would die. Yes we may fight or not get along and have separate tastes. I LOVE KRISTIE! you are my sister and my best friend. I know you will get over this and even though she is gone, doesn't mean she wont be forgotten. <3.

Everyone needs some inspiration every once in a while..

 So I forgot to mention where I got the inspiration to change the color scheme, but I had been thinking about it for some time. I got this little thing for a dollar filled it with some  rocks and made another felt/paper rose and now it sits on the side table! loves it.

why hello.. yellow [part 1]

a preview of new inspirations for the office. bring in yellow and gray as pops of color and to create a soft airy feel. I also stenciled the one of the closet doors to create more texture in a white room.

Do you love pizza as much as I do? .. you should TRY THIS!

So we have been doing this for awhile, but just recently made some modifications. we probably have pizza once a week. You know those nights you come home from work (in my case school) and you don't want to cook, but you have to eat. Well we make pizza! We buy the frozen pizzas, usually the cheapest and start from there.
For this pizza, I put on GRAPES (yes, grapes are delicious and my new favorite ingredient on pizza), onions, mushrooms, bacon and cheese. Put it in the oven for 15 mins at 400 degrees and ta da! It is delicious.

Thanksgiving break!

Hello there.. a whole week off, well kind of. I have projects papers, journals, etc. to catch up on, but this does mean no driving 40 mins each way just to get to school. woo hoo! I am also working extra hours too and working on some knick knack projects. Hopefully finishing up my office I have some things in mind.

So as you well know, I crochet on the side of all my other chaos and to relax/procrastinate from nursing school in general because it is usually too much work. It is also something else I can do at work. So this week I got commissioned to do a hat and scarf combo after I completed my sister and her boyfriend one. I was very excited. Here are the results. ( I like the way it came out)

new toys..

So yes, my mommy is awsome and already bought me my christmas present, well kinda. She has known that I wanted a kitchen aid mixer for a very long time (esp with cooking/baking a lot more now that we have our house and found it on sale), plus had coupons so she mailed me some money and coupons and I purchased it. YAY!.

And we made a nook for it on the kitchen cart and bar of all the goodies to have just in case and so we don't loose them


Now that halloween is over, it is time to put up a fall display after seeing this tutorial on this site and here it was time to get motivation to make my own. Although there is really display I did hang it from my window and it looks great except our windows need to be cleaned.

Oh I love the way it turned out.. and besides wrapping the yarn, it was so easy.
