Retro Mustard Trumpet Skirt w. Pom Poms

Quite the mouthful to describe the skirt I just made over the weekend. I had the creative itch and managed to start and actually finish two whole projects this past weekend (pats self on back), and this skirt was one of them! I am so happy that I finally made something that I can actually…

New Painting

Upcycled Flower Pots

So when we lived in Colorado, we used to buy our coffee from Costco. Specifically, this kind called New Mexico Piñon Coffee. We quickly found out moving to California, that they do not sell this brand of coffee at our local Costco. 😭 We tried some new brands and disliked them so much we could…

Lemon Basil Lemonade

Along with several other herbs that I am growing in my tiny apartment, I have a lemon basil plant that was taking over the light from everyone else. In order for the other herbs to stay happy, I seriously needed to prune him back. Have you ever had lemon basil? It smells amazing, just as…

New Painting

I finished up this beauty semi-recently, and I LOVE how it turned out. I currently have it over my computer in my office right now as I type. The colors are just so soothing. I can’t decide if it looks like mountains or a desert, what do you think? I took this painting and featured…

Then I added sautéed onions and broccoli mixed with pepper jack cheese and sliced steak. To top it off, whisked eggs with a little bit of heavy cream. I love making quiche….

Macrame Costers

Moving to California, I have noticed that all cold beverages condensate. You might think that is an odd statement, but that was not really a thing in Colorado. Since I did not have to worry about that in CO, I never had coasters laying around the house. Moving here, it was evident that I needed…

When Life Gives You Lemons

Make lemonade…and Lemon Bread! This past weekend Adam and I went over to an old family friend’s house that happens to be 10 minutes away from us here in California. I have never met them before, but apparently they all grew up with my dad and his siblings, so it was fun to meet them…

Creamy Lemon Asparagus Pasta

If you have ever seen any of my other pasta blog posts, then you might notice that I tend to use a lot of the same ingredients, but vary the recipe a bit here and there. I also tend to use what I have in the fridge rather than going and buying specific ingredients. So…

Lavender & Oat Bath Soak

I have been growing lavender at my desk while i’ve been working from home these past couple months. They went a little crazy, and I kept forgetting to water them, so I decided it was time to harvest the lavender & plant a new round of pods into my AeroGarden. Deciding what to do with all…
