FOOD : BANANA (NANER) BREAD

.

There's no hiding that my kiddos are picky eaters. They like something from day to day, week to week, month to month and so on... but over all I think most kids are probably the same. And if yours isn't, and they are that star eater, well pat yourself on the back and consider yourself one of the amazing few... and make sure to send some tips my way please. Either way, what do my kiddos love you ask? The same thing mom loves. Carbs, hahaha! Breads to be exact. Heck no could we go eating loaves of white bread and butter daily though so I have to switch it up some. Banana (Naner - as they call it) bread is a favorite amongst all of us and it's so simple to make that I thought I'd share our recipe. This last time I baked it I made jumbo muffins (6) instead of the usual loaf and it seemed to disappear a bit faster than prior. Enjoy and happy eating!

WHAT I WORE : AQUA UNDER THE BRIDGE

.
Happy Thursday dear friends! So casual, comfortable and a bit of cute is what it's all about. And that's right people, I'm all of twelve with a printed cartoon tee for Foster's Home for Imaginary Friends and I kinda don't care. Hope you have a lovely day ahead of yourself.

LITTLE SILLIES

.

These kiddos (the littlest one is my nephew) bring such happiness to our lives. I can't even explain how many fun moments there are when they are around... and just watching each of them grow, learn and bond together is amazing. I'm hoping their silly carefree personalities will always peek thru, and they won't worry or be offended of what others think of the goofball faces we love and enjoy to make daily. Hurray for silly faces!

I love this illustration, the stylization, subject and soothing color palette, but sadly I do not know the illustrator. If you happen to know who it's by, will you please message me so I may source the link to it properly. Happy Tuesday, hope you enjoyed a long holiday weekend :)

THINGS I LOVE : CAT TOTES

.

Since becoming a cat owner, I've noticed myself loving more and more cat products. Never before would I have considered owning cat themed products but there are so many out there - artwork, printed clothing, cell phone cases, shoes... everything down to totes. That's right awesome bags with trendy kitties on them. And mind you, this girl loves herself a cute tote, bag or clutch. There are many more out there, but here's a few I've spotted and seriously loved. Hope you have a wonderful holiday, Memorial Day!

HELLO THERE


So, it's been a great deal of time since I've been to this space, almost 2 full months, and boy have I missed it dearly. I thrive for creative inspiration, which in return keeps me motivated, happy and feeling positive about things. I won't lie, it was getting a bit wishy washy over here, and I hate that I had to step so far away from things with no real explanation of why, but some things in life I've realized are just not meant to be shared or explained. Life's a bit different lately though. With being away for a bit I wanted fresh eyes to start blogging again, so this space was redesigned some. Everything is still hiding in here, but if you are trying to find something specific and can't shot me a message and I'll direct you there. I'll be back shortly with some inspiration. Hello There, Hope you're well and I'm happy to be back!
