Five Coly bucks to the person who can identify the inspiration of this poem! And believe me you want five Coly bucks. :)
Pinterest. If you haven't been taken over by this site, well I am sorry. Check it out. It's amazing.
It has been the filler of my time for the last couple of days. My mommy was here over the weekend and we spent a beautiful amount of time scouring this site. Coming up with an amazing amount of ideas for our houses, lots of fun things to dream about, and some delish recipes to try out!
The best part of the weekend was that we actually followed through with a few of the ideas. And in no particular order I present to you.........
Special dates art
The original inspiration came from this blog. I pretty much followed her directions except rather than cutting out the numbers on the cricut I just printed straight onto the paper. And in looking at the picture I am noticing that I should probably move the paper down in the frame just a touch to center it. Other than that I LOVE it! Mom and I decided to use yellow in the living room and I thought this would be a great start.
Laundry Soap container
I found this on pinterest and picked a different font. I feel like mine is way cuter. See here
I used my cricut and some black vinyl. Font is called Channel and Modern. no 20.
Container is from walmart.
Behind door number 3 we have the lovely
The original recipe for this was for a cake but we decided to do cupcakes. I think because we did cupcakes rather than a layered cake we had a ridiculous amount of frosting left over. Not a problem I mind having. Theses cupcakes are incredible. You must make them, or hurry up and come to my house, there are about one dozen left. (yes, I ate one since this picture was taken)
Next I present something that looks disgusting but tasted wonderful.
Crock pot Salsa Chicken
I totally should have taken a picture when it was pretty because by looking at this picture no one in their right mind would want to make this. But it was soooo good and sooo easy. You can check it out here.
We ate it with noodles, and I also had it on a tortilla. Both were great.
And now for the L.
This was supposed to change my life. The idea is to modpodge a regular photo onto a canvas and viola you have an inexpensive canvas to hang around your house. Well guess what? The beauty cost about $3 and that is about what it looks like. I think if I had taken the time to do it properly it would have been better but really, who wants to do that. The problem was that the photo that I had to use was weird and had white down either side. I thought that I could fix that by cutting out a cute frame in black vinyl and cover it up. Well it totally didn't work. It's crooked, off center and over all just looks lame. Good thing the kiddos in the picture are cute. Cause that's about it.
Well I have to say 4 out of 5 isn't too bad. I had lots of fun with my momma and am thankful to have gotten a few things done around here.
I had such a wonderful time this weekend with my mom. I am so thankful to her for taking the time to come over here and see our place. We did some shopping, some pinning (obviously) baking, and a little resting. :)
I am already looking forward to her next visit in October and my sis is coming the week after. Yippee! It was so fun showing her around our town and having her meet our great neighbors. Thanks Mom! I love you.
