So, THE oven mitt (in the post below), is made by Pomegranate inc. and I bought it at a local store. Isn’t it adorable? In fact, most things on their website are. Check it out! Also, I happened to pick up another mitt or two and I’m thinking about having my first giveaway that will include the mitt! I figure I’ve won two giveaways so maybe I should host one of my own. Stay tuned for that
The shirt in the post below (last picture) is from Forever21. I got it when I was probably a sophomore in college. (see, I can make their clothes last 😉
Question for you all….if you ask me the brand or where something is from…should I add it in to the post you’ve seen the item in, or should I put it at the top of another post like I did above?
Since this post was sparked my the oven mitt, I am going to include some fun pics from a cooking class I went to last Thursday afternoon My friend Tallee nannies for a sweet family and the daughter, Vivian, hosted a cooking class. She is going to NYC in a few weeks and Tallee thought it would be a good way to raise some money for her trip! Plus, she is a WONDERFUL cook! She has made some of the most fabulous cakes I’ve ever seen. We had a lot of fun
The hosts made cupcakes with the initials of those who were planning to attend..cute idea!
The printed up the recipes for us!

Vivy sent us home with treat bags (peanut butter balls inside!!)
Here is the recipe the hosts gave us for the DELISH Chocolate Dipped Peanut Butter Balls
1 1/2 sticks butter, melted
1 cup peanut butter
1 lb. box of powdered sugar
4 cups of Rice Krispies
2 bags of chocolate chips (we used Ghirardelli)
-Put Rice Krispies in a gallon bag and whack until slightly crushed.
-In a mixer bowl, combine butter and peanut butter while gradually adding sugar and cereal. Mix everything together and the mixture will be very dry.
-Roll peanut butter mixture into small balls and place on a cookie sheet covered with wax paper.
-In a double boiler, melt all chocolate over medium heat then reduce heat to low. Dip the peanut butter balls in the chocolate. Refrigerate then serve when chocolate is hard.
I am so happy it is Friday. This week hasn’t been the greatest but ended up much better than it started I plan to relax tonight (all weekend really)..I wish it would include a glass of wine but I don’t think my prednisone would like that ..or work as well as it should. With my goal being stated to relax and rest, our sweet friends Jessica & Kyle offered to bring us dinner tonight. They are so sweet and we love hanging out with them.
I am liking having my new blog domain I’ve had a few people ask about the blogs I had listed on my page. Well, I don’t know WHERE they are When I go to layout, it says I’ve never entered any in…but I have. I’m hoping they are lost in transition…but if they don’t appear back in a few days, I’ll be adding them back
Hope you all have a wonderful weekend & thanks for being such sweet bloggy friends!
