    More Than Cookies

    I know it’s been awhile since I’ve poked my head in here, but it’s for good reason. I’ve been busy! Over the past few years, I have fully and completely fallen in love with cookie decorating. Yes, cookie decorating! For those of you who know me, I’m sure you know about this as it’s been a little all-encompassing for me at times. It started as a hobby which quickly turned into a side business. I started out making cookies for[...]

    Crystal Bridge

    I’ve lived in OKC my entire life. Thirty five years I’ve been in this city, and I’ve never once been inside the Crystal Bridge, downtown at the Myriad Gardens. Not sure how this has happened, but I knew I needed to change that ASAP. My awesome husband came up with the idea, so last weekend, we headed downtown. And we had so much fun! Ben was SUPER excited about everything. The inside was spectacular. Countless exotic plants, trees, and flowers.[...]

    March Favorites

    Alright, I know I’m a week late with this, but I figured better late than never, right? I can’t believe March is over already! It seriously flew by. But even so, I managed to discover a few new favorites. 1. Smartfood White Cheddar Popcorn I walk by this stuff every time I’m at the grocery store and never gave it any thought. But one day this past month, for some reason it caught my eye on my way to check[...]

    February Favorites

    So, with me trying to get back into the blogging thing, I was thinking it would be fun to do a monthly favorites post! Just random things I’ve been loving the past month. Recipes, movies, songs, makeup… you get the idea. This isn’t an original idea; I know tons of bloggers do things like this, and I thought it might be a fun thing to do. I love hearing what other people are loving, and most of the time it[...]

    Pizza Bites Recipe

    I was feeling rather sassy today and decided to whip up some pizza bites for lunch. Saturday lunch is usually a time I feel really uninspired. A lot of times we’ll just munch around on little things, or else we’ll do a sandwich or something else equally boring. Well, not today my friends! Today we feasted on Pizza Bites. They were easy. REALLY easy. The most time consuming part of this recipe was cubing up the pepperoni, and that took[...]

Candle Upcycling

So, apparently one of the things I’ve gotten really good at over the past couple of years is hanging on to candles that are past their prime. You know, candles like these: And that’s not all of them. I had 10 candles like this, easily. Probably closer to 15. Think of the space wasted with holding on to candles like this! One of our cabinets was overflowing with them. I finally decided enough was enough. I remembered seeing an idea[...]

Hello.

So… Hi there. I know it’s been awhile since I’ve been around. I’ve actually been keeping pretty busy these past 2 1/2 years. Crazy, right? Funny how having a 5-year-old will do that. Lately I’ve been finding myself thinking about this blog. I miss having this place to come tell our stories, share our laughs, talk to you guys… and then I realized, I don’t have to miss it. I can come back whenever I want to. And I want[...]

Yum. These things are good! I was put in charge of dessert for our Father’s Day get together at my parents’ house today, so naturally I turned to my Pinterest boards to find something new and exciting to bring. Normally I like to make things at least one time before serving to people, but I had a feeling this┬áchocolate chip pecan bars recipe would be a winner. They’re like pecan chocolate chip cookies, but in bar form. How can you[...]
