    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[...]

Lions and Tigers and Bears, Oh My!

So today we went to the zoo! Greg and I didn’t see our little guy for about 30 hours since it was our anniversary weekend (no, I wasn’t counting or anything ), so we were both wanting to do something fun with him today. And what’s more fun with a kid than going to the zoo! So we loaded up the car with all our essentials, and we were off! Here are my two favorite guys in the entire world,[...]

Happy Anniversary to Us!

11 years. Greg and I have been married for 11 YEARS. That is a long time! Unless you’re married to the love of your life. Then 11 years fly by in the blink of an eye. How did we get so old? Aren’t the only people old enough to have been married this long, well, old? I guess if I have to get older, I may as well grow older with my best friend, right? Greg, thank you for everything you are[...]

The Colors of the Rainbow

Posted by sharilyn On June - 2 - 2012 1 Comment

OK, maybe not all the colors of the rainbow. But close. We had so much fun today! I pinned this idea on Pinterest quite awhile ago, but forgot all about it. Then Greg came across it and reminded me of it, so we promptly gathered all supplies for our own little Rainbow Rice Container of Fun! Catchy name, dontcha think? It was so easy to make, and Ben was a superb helper throughout the process. Plus, (and my mom will love[...]

Home Projects and Staycation Fun

For those of you who were concerned…yes, I am still alive. I know everyone was frantic with worry. You’d think after I just resurrected this blog three months ago that I wouldn’t be so quick to go MIA again, would you? At least I was missing for just over a month this time instead of a year. Progress, right? Hopefully soon I’ll get down the fine art of staying busy with my little man during the day and not being[...]

Chicken Taco Recipe

I’m just going to cut to the chase tonight. I made chicken tacos, and they were good. Not only were they good, they were super easy. So of course I wanted to share them with you! I know I’ve confessed my love affair with Pinterest before. And thanks to Pinterest, I have a slew of recipes to try. Some are more involved, but this one could not be easier. I found this chicken taco recipe on Pinterest. The recipe calls[...]
