hanging in there

Hanging in there.  Story of my life these days.  Why do I always feel as though there is never enough time?  Tonight I have a long over due haircut appointment with my sister, Friday we’re having friends over for dinner so that leaves tomorrow evening to clean and shop for Friday.  Perhaps I’m not managing my time wisely? Perhaps.

On with the photo{s} of the day{s}…

Nothing is better than a cold coke straight out of a cold refridgerator poured over ice in a plastic cup.  Before I know it, my cup is empty.

24, guilty pleasure

While browsing Pinterest and looking for brunch ideas, I found a recipe for Red Velvet Whoopie Pies.  I love red velvet and anything that is miniature immediately demands my attention.  Not to mention the pies in her picture are heart shaped!  Heart shaped red velvet?  Sold!  My first attempt at these pretty little things was not too bad.  The cookies were the perfect texture and help up quite nicely when the sandwiches were made.  My only issue is with the cream cheese frosting; this recipe was a tad too cheesy for my liking.  Enter Ashley.  After a quick email this morning soliciting her help, I had a new recipe in no time!  I can’t wait to have the finished product in a few weeks 🙂

25, something you made


eighty days

Eighty days.  That’s the number of days it has been since I wrote a blog post.  My friends are ashamed of me.  I have good excuses reasons though!

But now, I’m back!  It’s a new year and I’m motivated to jump on the blog-train {along with many other trains…}.  What better way to start up again than with a template, if you will.  I’m linking up with The Tichenor Family and joining the Photo-a-day Challenge {photo-a-day challenge originally from fat mum slim} and I’m going to stick with this.  Promise!  Slap me on the wrist if I don’t 🙂

Photo-a-day Challenge

Yes, I know today is the 16th day of the year but rather than overwhelming myself trying to take pictures of the last 15 day “ideas”, I’ll just start with today.  Without further adeiu, morning:

16, morning

Since Lee and I moved to the ‘burbs {I suppose I forgot to mention that part}, coffee is at the top of my to-do list once I get to work.  I dock my laptop, throw my keys on my desk, and go make myself a creamy cup of Starbucks instant coffee {no judging, please}.

I’ll be back tomorrow with numero 17.  If you’re reading, jump on the photo-train!
