January Obsessions

Lately, I've been on this technology kick. Maybe because I've been assigned to read all of these random articles {Learning Through Cyberspace} for grad class.

My {new found love} is Path. It's a free App; not very many folks are on it yet, but I think it will pick up. I enjoy adding music,my locations, and of course photos. Check it out!

{Snapseed} of course is another great photo editing tool that I can't seem to live without. I immediately take all images to Snapseed first or directly to Instagram {love of my photo life}.

Design Sponge is a gem! I adore this site almost as much as coffee, but seriously it makes my heart palpitate a little faster with each log in. I truly {heart} this site.

I'm an advid Real Simple reader. On the last page of my latest issue I noticed the tag line: {REAL SIMPLE, NO OBLIGATION BOOK CLUB} I had to join! Let's just say its a way to read some interesting titles without being held accountable;)

Which I wouldn't mind to have an actual book club...anyone?

I feel I also have a blog addiction:(. I am probably a follower of a zillion blogs and I often spend hours upon hours reading, wanting and longing to be a part of others blogs.

So that's just to name of few of my recent addictions, what are you currently addicted to?

Kitchen Aid: Take 1

It's what's for dinner...

Is there such thing as {healthy} chocolate molten lava cake? Shew. I do believe I could eat this sweet indulgence everyday.

For my birthday, I was stoked when I opened my Kitchen Aid mixer. So to the top of the list was my favorite dessert.

I Google-d a new fabulous not so fattening recipe and this is what I found.


I'll be posting a picture of soon as I finish it;)

{Other} Molten Lava Cake Recipes!

On Friday, I had to make these great pieces of Arts with my class that I found via Pinterest.

After reading this story, my students were to create their artworks and then write their own I have a dream statement. Check out their masterpieces. Aren't they so sweet?

Planning for the future...

Lately a lot of things have been up in the air; some changes need to be made.

1. We are constantly working on our little humble abode, but lately the word move keeps being tossed around... Not sure where {possbily just a new neighborhood will fix this itch} or if its the right choice, but it sounds good..right?

2. Today, I begin Grad school..a big YUK sits in my stomach. I dread the process in it's entirety. Wonder if it's a stomach bug or a disease that's here for the long haul... {sigh}.

3. Are we going to plan a wedding or pick a destination...geez. I get stressed alone making that decision. Not looking good in that department either. {mess} That is {supposed to happen} in 2012 as well..bite my nails.

4. Lastly, a lifestyle change is in the works and putting that in the mix of all of the other things just makes it to cope and make it all flow. I guess it'll work itself out, but I'm not quite sure how some people do it.

I'll keep ya posted...

Cheers to the Weekend!

Oh, my goodness!
It's the first week back to school since Christmas break. Let me say...FOREVER LONG!
So glad for the weekend; which leads me to what keeps me sane until Monday rolls around.

{What tickles my fancy on the weekend!}

1. Starbucks {Tall Skinny Hazelnut Latte}

2. Family Time {cuddling on the couch}

3. Spending endless time on Pinterest.

4. Some light reading.
{I magazines}

5. Sitting in the bookstore for hours just book browsing cookbooks or reading a book I refuse to purchase;)

{My mom has celiac disease, so I'm always looking for something new and tasty for her to try}

{I ❤ the spark people app and I usually thumb through any cookbooks they have if I run across them}
-SUGARBABY is simply chic and fun ways to incorporate delicious treats to any event.

LTC...Until Next Time...

Until Next Time...

What fun this has been to be part of a great crafty family community! The support has been phenomenal and I will miss it so.

Unlike my fellow co-bloggers I do not have a growing family yet; but I do hope to catch up with you time and again on Pinterest or on my personal blog{which I'm working on}.

So for now it's not goodbye, but it's until next time!

7,8..Lay 'em Straight.

Ahh.. new organizaiton in my life.

I'm adoring this fabulous mustache calendar. Such a perfect gift!

Ooo! Now this is what I am talking about! The Illustrated Calendar... a must for the new year!

I am exceptionally partial to my Erin Condren {LifePlanner}.
Just the title alone says..MUST have..c'mon..{LIFE PLANNER} Yikes!

I practically tote it around {EVERYWHERE} I go!! Such cute stickers inside {which are free}! I really feel so important as I feel the need to write down every single thing inside. Right down to my snacks!!

{Love my Jonathan Adler cover!}

And of course my side kick that keeps me sane, organized and feeling human since it tucks me in at night via {everything I know is stored on it somewhere} iPhone!

Blue by Day, Sequins by Night!

Well New Year's Eve was {full} of fun!

First to start with chanting C-A-T-S..Cats, Cats, Cats. As the University of Kentucky faced their rival the Louisville Cardinals. Not to disappoint the score was 69-62! Go Big Blue!

Later that night was to head over to a friends house for some Just Dance 3 action and champagne abuse!

Nothing says New Years like a game of Circle of Death, sweatin' to Just Dance 3 and the best company a gal could ask for.
Love the friends I have!

Even more so, I love this guy. I've been ringing my New Year's with this fella for 12 years now and I'm still as smitten as I was long, long ago.

Curious and ever so anxious to see what twenty twelve will bring.
Hope you had a great New Years as well;)

Happy New Year!

Should old acquaintance be forgot and never brought to mind-
Should old acquaintance be forgot and days auld lang syne.
