Latest Update

well...sad to say it has yet again been a while since my last post...BUT there has been improvement so it's just a slow moving process to progress :) the problem is I get SO wrapped up in reading other people's blogs (really I could do it ALL day if I allowed myself) that I lose the time for writing/adding to mine! But here are some fun updates that have occurred:

Chaz and I have decided that our tastes in food are too rich for our blood...but good thing we like to cook. One night the menu was homemade wheat waffles with a homemade blueberry compote...DELICIOUS!

So that time finally came...RACHEL AND BJ GOT MARRIED! YAY...here is a picture from our nail trip! This nail place was INCREDIBLY nice (they gave Rachel a free mani for her wedding!) Check out her Elton John glasses...compliments of the blonde posing behind her :)

I also LOVE to bake...but don't get to do it as much...with only TWO people in this house it's hard to keep cupcakes around...we'd eat them all quickly! Soooooo for a prayer bridal shower I went to (such an amazing idea) I got the chance to make these little cinnamon role look-alike cupcakes! While they definitely weren't the prettiest (there were some other ones there that put me to shame)....they were ABSOLUTELY yummy! Cupcake mix with added strawberry puree' and a homemade cream cheese frosting with strawberry puree' as well! While the icing turned out runny I actually did like the way these looked...so girly and shabby chic :)

So my good friend, Katie, picked up these knobs for me at TJ Max....she said they were just too cute to pass up and she said she knew I'd love them....SHE WAS SO RIGHT! They are so adorable and are already on my desk in my guest bedroom! Thanks Katie...I LOVE them :)

I too made a TJ Max trip and found these darling seat cushions for cheap! Aren't they so cute?!

Here are just a few of the latest updates...Chaz's classroom pics coming next blog!

Blueberries and strawberries are in season right now, which means they are on sale! Purchase containers of each and freeze them in ziplocs (slice the strawberries). That way you can use them later in any type of baked goods and can get them at a great deal! Hence the blueberry compote recipe! So easy to make and frozen berries were used They are also GREAT in smoothies! They take the place of ice in a smoothie, which means less watered down concoctions!
