simple and classic

I love the simplicity of this bathroom. It looks so clean and classic! Just adding in a small antique hutch for a linen closet and a Persian rug is absolutely fabulous! You really don't need much in a bathroom. A towel, toothbrush, some hair products... And of course a gorgeous antique hutch and Persian rug {wink}. Happy Saturday every one... Go clean out your bathroom today!

r & c magazine




I don't even know how I forgot to tell you all... Yikes so sorry! I was in a magazine. Yes a magazine... Maybe not National, but a good old fabulous local publication! It was  fun to see my clients Family Room in bright lights... lol. Thank you Ranch and Coast Magazine for making my head bigger! Just kidding {wink}! I had a blast working with this family. Re-designing their family room was amazing! This was definitely a house I could move into! One day... Check out my clients before and after {here}!

My mother is gearing up for a kitchen, laundry room, master bedroom  and pantry remodel {beyond excited for her}. I wonder if she's going to call me for design help... HaHa!

 Flower Shaped S'more Pie Pops

Ingredients
  • 2 Frozen Deep Dish 9" Pie Crusts, defrosted
  • 1 Hershey's Creamy Milk Chocolate Bar
  • Mini Marshmallows
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 6" Lolly Pop Sticks
Instructions
  1. Preheat the oven to 350F.
  2. Remove the defrosted pie crusts from the pie plate and roll flat.
  3. Using a flower shaped cookie cutter, cut out as many shapes from each pie crust as you can. Set aside half of the pieces.
  4. Arrange half of the shapes on a parchment lined baking sheet, being sure to offset them to leave room for the lolly pop sticks.
  5. Brush the beaten egg onto each of the shapes to cover completely.
  6. Gently press the lolly pop stick into each of the shapes, pressing down and embedding it slightly.
  7. Add a square of chocolate, and some mini marshmallows.
  8. Take the pieces of cut out pie dough that had been set aside, and place them on top of the chocolate and marshmallows. Pinch the dough with your fingers to stretch it out if it's not large enough to cover the chocolate and marshmallows.
  9. Gently press down the edges of each shape, then use a fork to completely seal the edges.
  10. Bake at 350F for 20 to 25 minutes until golden brown.

wish me luck


For the last few weeks I've been craving slow cooker oatmeal... It just sounds so good to me. Now with the weather slowly changing and school back in session I think I found the perfect recipe. I did make it years ago and and everyone liked it. But, one thing that I do remember is that it was a little blah and needed more flavor. Hmmm I think I know why this recipe grabbed my attention... Brown sugar and cream! Doesn't it look absolutely delicious! So last night I made it. I'll let you all know how it goes this morning... Wish me Luck! 


{recipe here}

* How To Cook Steel-Cut Oats for Breakfast the Night Before *


Ingredients
1 teaspoon butter or olive oil
1 cup steel-cut oats
3 cups water
3-fingered pinch salt
1 cup milk (optional)

Instructions
1. Start this the night before you want to have steel-cut oatmeal. Measure out your oats. This quantity will make about 4 servings.
2. Heat about 1 teaspoon butter or olive oil in a 2-quart saucepan set over medium heat. Add the oats and fry them for about 3 minutes, or until they start smelling toasty.
3. Pour in the water and add the salt. Stir.
4. Bring to a rolling boil.
5. Turn off the heat and cover the pan. Leave it on the stove, and go to bed!
6. The next morning, uncover the pan and bring the oatmeal back up to a simmer. If you would like thinner and creamier oatmeal, stir in a cup of milk before reheating.
When the oatmeal is warm, scoop out and enjoy!
Additional Notes:
• Cover and refrigerate any leftovers. 
• Re-heat leftovers in just the same way: warm up on the stove, or in a bowl in the microwave.

I truly wish at this moment I had one of those little signs that you hang on your door knob that says, Do not disturb this momma is sleeping {till further notice}! I'm beyond excited to sleep in tomorrow am. This week has been so fast and furious for me. I blinked and  it's already Friday. Crazy! Its been a very good week... But man I am sure tired. You know what, I'm actually pretty lucky... My kids don't bother me in the morning on the weekends. They let me sleep in {smile}. HaHaHa Watch I'll be up at 6:15am tomorrow! Hope you all can catch up on your ZZZZZZZ's this weekend!
