She sews

Pillow

Yesterday was one of those ‘so tired I could actually maybe die’ days.  Could have had something to do with the brain-drain of a night before, the incredibly late night and the early morning following.  After (finally) finding something to keep my three year old happy and entertained, I decided to get the lead out and just be productive already.  I wouldn’t be able to keep this blog if I ceased making, right? So, with my icy cup of green tea in hand, I began the simple yet time consuming task of sewing a pillowcase set.  The whole process was pretty straightforward (and I’ll post a tutorial soon), but with the constant toddler interruptions and longing to just curl up on the beanbag and sleep (which I did, once they were sewn), it took a while to get on a roll. They turned out really nicely.  I kind of want to :READ MORE:

A busy week

1.  A family date that took us to a Lawton Flea Market and Starbucks (The best it gets in the Midwest.  For a REALLY good cup of coffee, we just stay at home). 2.  A great mail day from an even greater friend – Imogen Renee Rose.  She will be one of our guest makers on a new blog feature that will debut mid February.  Her website is getting a makeover, but you can buy her art HERE. 3.  Scarlett is actually really good at building things with blocks.  Check out this castle she so perfectly had balancing on the carpet in the living room. 4.  The most recent coffee purchase.  We have tried a lot of good coffee from amazing companies over the last few months, all of which I plan to compile and share with you soon.  This was a BEAUTIFUL cup.  We tried brewing it a few different :READ MORE:

Strawbana!

smoothie

Smoothie time! I don’t know how your mornings go or what your selection of toaster compatible breakfasts include, but I do know this: there is nothing better than starting your day with a healthy serving of fruits and veg.  Clint, Scarlett and I love to start our day by drinking our food (with the right consistency, it’s just easier that way) and while I try to pack as much into them as I possibly can, I am also very familiar with the scant, Mother Hubbard-ish weeks.  Let me assure you that for a truly great smoothie, even the basics will cut it. This week has been a bit tighter, so we’ve been opting for a smoothie of Banana, strawberry (frozen), a handful of spinach, filtered water, a teaspoon of peanut butter and a drizzle of honey.   DELICIOUS.  If my three-year-old’s expression is anything to go by (not to mention her :READ MORE:

Bloglovin’

Bloglovin button

I’m sitting here listening to my more talented half groan and mutter about the ins and outs of WordPress and PHP, trying to drown him out with anything from Elvis to Outkast to Death Cab and I realize that I may be heading toward counter productivity.  In light of this, let me tell you a little about Bloglovin! I know y’all are a bunch of smartphone toting, convenience loving internet enthusiasts (I know this because I just described basically the entirety of western society) so I know that you would love an app that gives you a news feed of all the awesome blogs you follow (LIKE MINE).  Bloglovin is exactly that.  While there ARE other readers out in the webisphere, they all seem to be cluttered, difficult to use and packed to the brim with redundant features.  Bloglovin have made a user-friendly, good looking app that does exactly what you :READ MORE:

Antique Peeking

Today we decided to finally make some moves toward opening our new store (it’s on the way, I swear).  Altus, OK is where we decided to begin and it was a super fun day, though I can categorically say that it wouldn’t have been anywhere near as fun had we not gotten hopped up on caffeine and homemade fudge (naughty, right) beforehand. Altus is home to an adorable little cafe called ‘Confectionately Yours‘ which, in addition to it’s darling cheesy wordplay, is just about the only place around here to get a great cup of coffee.  The employees/owners are entirely welcoming, the little couch in the corner is oh-so-comfy AND (here’s the clincher) it is directly connected to a fantastic little antique store.  All of my favorite things! Two large black coffees (one with 2 shots of espresso, of course) and a babycino later, we were ready for antiquing. Main Street :READ MORE:

Inside. All Day.

On a cold, gloomy day, you will find me in one of two places.  On the couch with blankets and my computer, overseeing the playtime of a little one (and watching reruns of Friends, let’s be honest), or, in the kitchen.  Today, we opted for sweatpants and the kitchen. We made this glorious, creamy mushroom (GLUTEN AND DAIRY FREE) pasta.  I found the recipe here, but I adapted it to suit my own dietary preferences.  It was super delicious and enjoyed by even the fussiest, so I was happy.  Plus, it was SUPER quick and easy, which turned out to be perfect for a day that had me feeling scatterbrained and unproductive.  For the full recipe, click HERE Follow my blog with Bloglovin
