{OOTD} Mixed Leopard Print

January 9, 2015
Mixed- Prints

It’s kind of sad how little I get out of the house some weeks other than carpool and the usual errands. I picked up a few clients and am really now a WAHM instead of a moonlighting one so the leisure I once had to come and go as I please has been replaced with more structure, meaning I don’t really get dressed up like I used to.

Yesterday I took a trip to Target and decided that at LEAST once a week I would put on real clothes and attempt to look decent.

Dutch Oven Pot Roast

January 7, 2015
Pot Roast Recipe

Normally when I cook pot roast I either put it in the slow cooker or I bake it. Well seeing that Sunday I got a late start….as in didn’t get out of the bed in enough time to have it properly marinate and slow cook, I needed another option.

Pinterest anyone? I came across a fairly simple recipe for pot roast created by the Neely’s. So sad about their divorce. Luckily I had all of the ingredients on hand. I started cooking at 3 and it was ready at 6 and was extremely tender as if it had been in the oven for hours.

The other day I came to an epiphany that really made me happy. I finally figured out the exact direction I want to go with in with my kitchen.

KidKraft Savannah Dollhouse

About that dollhouse that just missed a drop kicking on Christmas Eve.

As the year started coming to a close and all reminders of Christmas were being removed the first thing on my list was to transfer the dollhouse into Addison’s room. I finally got to it this weekend and I realized there were only a few viable spots in her room for it to go without blocking a vent.

{New Hair Alert} Louis Quarterman Salon

December 30, 2014
Louis Quarterman Salon

I don’t care what color, race, or nationality you are all women share the same language when it comes to the nuance of finding a good salon. I liken the process to finding a church home. Being that I am a loyal kind of customer, after my stylist moved away a few months ago I found myself in a bad situation because I didn’t have a clue on where to find a new stylist.

Homemade Breakfast Potatoes

December 28, 2014
Breakfast Potatoes

My Mama’s homemade breakfast potatoes used to be on POINT! or as the young folk say on FLEEK! I’ve mentioned before that she loved herself some potatoes and I vividly remember waking to the smell of potatoes and toast on Sunday mornings before church and this Sunday while I was making pancakes for breakfast I thought about my mother and her potatoes.

Lucky for me she left behind three enormous notebooks full of recipes and after searching a little I found a recipe for her homemade breakfast potatoes and went for it.
