Warning: Long (but colorful!) post

Today is my day off and what do I fill it with? Trying out a new recipe, decorating and of course blogging. I had to do some phone calls and that took up a lot of time-ugh.
As mentioned above, I got a chance to try out a new recipe. A friend over at Mirrored Images did this and it seemed so simple something she must have forgotten an ingredient- like flour! But it worked out great and I’m looking forward to giving them to some friends.

All it is is 1 cup of peanut butter, 1 cup of sugar and 1 egg. That’s it! It was super fast one little suggestion when you make them- remember to flour your fork. I forgot to do that.

The cookies were made in about 20-30 minutes and I’m so impressed with them that I’m thinking about making them for our small group this weekend. The recipe makes about 16 cookies, but you could double it to make more or whatever. This would be a good treat for little kids to help make.
Secondly I decorated! I’ve been into bright red and birds egg blue. This picture shows it a bit, but I was thinking of a more oriental theme, I’ll show pictures of our master bedroom when I’m done. Until then this picture from Country Living will have to do.

I am becoming best friends with my spray paint. I love them more and more each day…*sigh. I forgot to take before pictures (Sorry!) but I wanted to show some accents for red and blue that are being put in our room. I got them all at Goodwill. I was going through a rod iron look a while back and now I’m changing. My eyes have been opened to all the possibilities our house can change with the seasons and I won’t have to buy anything new! Enjoy the pictures.

What color do you think I should paint my little friend?

Thanks for visiting! I'm a happy mom and wife who loves the smell of books, traveling and food. I like dreaming about alter egos, snuggling with Emma and going on dates with hubby,Travis. Pretty much anything creative I'm into. I hope you enjoy my rants and raves and come back soon. Oh, and I love comments so please feel free to let me know what you think!
  1. I love the red! Spray paint is amazingly fun, isn’t it? 🙂

  2. In answer to your question, I think blue. I love that blue, such a happy light color, and the red really looks great with it.

    I feel so stupid… I never even thought about using flour on the fork. And I always get so frustrated with it sticking to the dough!

    I love the pictures of Emma, she is so beautiful!
