Keeping Our Eyes On What Is Important

We have a ton of transition heading our way whether we're ready for it or not, a change of jobs (for both of us) and a new house in a new state are only 3 months away.  So in the spirit of keeping our eyes focused on what is really important (and so we have something to fill up the walls of a house) Ben and I made this today thanks to some instruction from a friend over at Osito (you should really check her stuff out).

First we spray painted a canvas

Drew some guide lines 

Stuck on the stickers

Painted over them

Waited for it to dry and peeled off the stickers.

Hopefully this will be a good reminder for us as we move forward of what is most important.

Spring Baseball Hat

With the coming of Spring I decided to make a hat for all the baseball fans out there.  I am not a huge baseball fan, but I LOVE this hat.

Ice Cream Sandwiches

I got a Belgian waffle maker on a black Friday sale when my sister-in-law and I decided to be brave and battle the crowds. I hadn't used it until I saw this idea on Pinterest to make chocolate cake in a waffle maker and sandwich vanilla ice cream between the "waffles." My husband and I decided to give it a try this evening with the Belgian waffle maker. Wow! They were delicious! We put the extras in ziplock baggies in the freezer so that we can enjoy them later.

sandwiched them together and stuck them in the freezer
