big day today

{school starts}

Every mothers dream & worst nightmare at the same time! You want them out of the house so you can breath and function again, but you're so sad because they're getting older and wiser! 
Miss Taylor Michelle is starting the 1st grade today!

  Good luck baby... Have fun!

rise and shine


Blueberry Baked Oatmeal

 makes 6 servings


1 cup old-fashioned rolled oats
1/4 cup chopped walnuts, divided
1/2 tsp. baking powder
3/4 tsp. ground cinnamon
Pinch of salt
1/4 cup maple syrup (I used sugar free)
1 cup milk (I used skim)
1 large egg, lightly beaten
2 tbsp. unsalted butter, melted and cooled slightly
1 tsp. vanilla extract
2-3 ripe bananas, peeled and sliced
1 cup blueberries or raspberries, fresh or frozen, divided


1. Preheat the oven to 375F.
2. Lightly grease a 2-quart baking dish. In a medium bowl, mix the oats, half of the walnuts, baking powder, cinnamon, and salt. Stir to combine. In a liquid measuring cup, combine the syrup, milk, egg, butter, and vanilla.
3. Spread the sliced bananas in a single layer over the bottom of the baking dish. Top with half of the berries. Sprinkle the dry oat mixture over the fruit in an even layer. Pour the liquid ingredients evenly over the oats.
4. Sprinkle the remaining nuts and berries over the top. Bake for 35-40 minutes, until the top is browned and the oats have set. Let cool 10 minutes before serving.

PP = picky people

I kind of have an issue with blue & white pottery... If I don't have it in my home I get sick. The fever comes 1st then I break out in hives. Is that an illness? I believe so... Plus, I'm super picky about my blue & whites. Like some are picky about their coffee...I'm picky about blue & whites. Some like Peets, Starbucks,  Dunkin Donuts, Folgers... The list is endless. There are a lot of choices, but only a few really stand out in my mind. {Starbucks}

Here are a few images of the style of blue & white pottery that I absolutely adore... Plus, I love the placement and use of the pottery. Perfection!  

Gathering them in three's in an entry & bring in different sizes. A must!

Two large ginger jars flanking an entry table. I love how the white walls pop the pottery. They make such a huge statement! 

Ahhhh Kitchen island blue and whites. Heaven!  Need I say more... Nope!

You always need to put blue & whites in a bookshelf. Stagger them throughout. They will stand tall & stand out! 

Bedroom buddies! Hello friends, Make your master bedroom strong & stable... Like your relationship in life.  

I'm ending with my favorite picture... Pink peonies in blue & white jars!
 A must in my home! 

I could go on and on about blue & white pottery, but I don't want to categorize myself [PP}. Enjoy & get creative with your pottery. 

The rooster chicks are always here to help!

shhh did you hear that?

The birds are calling... Oh My they're all over the place! 

We're so in love with bird prints right now... Is it because they get to fly up high in the sky or they're free as a bird. Hmmm I'm sure that's just it!

Come get your bird on at the rustic rooster!

trying to beat this heat...

This just might work!



8 3-ounce plastic cups
sliced strawberries
12 ounces Berry Lime Iced Tea


1. Fill each cup halfway full with fresh fruit. Add about 1.5 ounces of Berry Lime Iced Tea to fill each cup. Do not overfill.
2. Cover each cup with a small piece of foil and insert a popsicle stick into the center of each cup.
3. Freeze for at least 4 hours.
good luck...

fasten your seat belts...

It's that time of year again for me & my family... Vacation time! I can't even tell you how excited I am to leave town & go on an adventure. This trip is much needed! I've had an amazing and challenging summer so this vacation is well deserved! I need to re-charge my mind, body and soul! 

Don't worry the rooster will still be open while we're gone! 

Hope to see you all when I get back!

i need your help...

Once again... Something is deeply tugging at my heart. Of course it's about little kids! I was driving in my car the other morning. Just did camp and preschool drop off and then I heard it... A commercial about foster children. It was about kids in foster homes that don't have the proper clothes... Of course they don't have money to go out and get new school clothes. They have to wear whatever they have... Small, damaged or too big. Plus, these kids are at the age where they have growth spurts, they're developing their self esteem and learning about confidence. So imagine a little boy who's wearing high water pants because he's growing tall and he has to  walk the school halls in small/short pants... A little girl has tight shirts and shoes that don't fit. Kids are cruel! Of course other kids will make fun of them. *Parents tell your kids to back off... Remember bullying can stop  by parents talking and educating their children. Step in moms and dads!   My heart is aching... I know we all have fabulous clothes that our children have worn {maybe only once or maybe never}. Lets donate to these foster kids instead of selling our clothes. Sorry for the novel... But just imagine if that was your little one and they had nothing and were made fun of. Oh My Gosh... My heart aches!!!! 

Here's my only problem... 

I haven't heard that commercial again so I don't know where to donate... I don't know of a foster home here in San Diego. Please let me know of a name and contact. I have tons of bags I want to donate. Please help me!!!!! 

To get in touch with me you can:

CALL: 760.436.2171
RESPOND: To this blog post

* I'd be willing to take your kids clothes too and drop it off for you... The rustic rooster can be a drop of location. Let me work out all the details once I get in contact with some one at a foster home! *

Thank you all so much...
This really means the world to me!!!!
