The Best Homemade White Bread

Best Homemade Bread

There is something about dark grey skies that make me crave baking in my kitchen.  Lucky for me, yesterday just happened to be one of those days.  I couldn’t wait until nap time to break out my baking companion Dottie, and my  canisters of flour and sugar to bake some yummy homemade bread.   Baking hasn’t always been my forte.   I am sure Dave will be the first to vouch that many of my baking adventures have turned into {Read More}

Farmhouse Table Makeover with Chalky Finish Paint

Farmhouse Table Makeover with Chalky Finish

Not long after Dave and I purchased our first home, we made another major purchase and bought ourselves some REAL furniture.   At the time, Dave was still in school working on his Doctorate, and I was working full-time to put him through school.  So as you can imagine we had LOADS of cash just hanging out in our bank account completely at our disposal.   (you KNOW I am kidding right?)   But the hand- me-down couch and table {Read More}

Do More of What Makes You Happy Print

When I was in Junior High we used to sit in our Student Government Class (before school started) and color.  Yep, Color with Crayons and coloring books.  Oh, and on occasion we painted signs to announce upcoming events like football games, dances, etc. and  I LOVED it.  It gave me a good reason to get to school early and release some of my creative energy.  I was reminded of this, the other evening, as I was folding laundry of all {Read More}

M&M Chocolate Fudge Peanut Butter Cup Cookies

M&M Chocolate Fudge Peanut Butter Cup Cookies

We are three weeks into our school year here in Arizona.  And well, I have to say the first 2 weeks, were pretty rough for my little Kindergartener.  Full Day Kindergarten is a LONG day.  There were lots and lots of tears, and anxiety about going each day.  And well, it was COMPLETELY heart breaking for me as a mom. There was no quick fix for his sadness.  And more than anything I really wanted him to fall in love {Read More}
