{diy succulent bowl}

These succulent bowls are insanely easy to throw together. Probably my easiest DIY to date. Once you’ve gathered all your materials, it’s really just adjusting the succulents to your liking. And that’s basically it. Swear.

I kept seeing these on the gram’ this week and feel head over heels for them. The only difference, I used real plants vs. faux. Either totally do the trick. But, since my Mom is my succulent dealer, I opted to go the real deal route. You guys, her succulent grow fucking wild. It’s wild. Ha! They get watered every.single.day and they LOVE it. I do that to my succulents and the shrivel up and die. WTF? Stacy’s Mom has got the succulent thing going on!

{easter round-up}

Bunny Cookie Cutter | Floral Placemat | Milk Glass Dish

How adorable are these little bunny butt cookies? Bay helped me make them and I LOVE how they turned out. So simple too. We used a sugar cookie package to make these. Because, sometimes….we just don’t have time to whip out the mixer and make a hot mess. lol.

All you need is your fave sugar cookie recipe. Or a packaged mix. A bunny cookie cutter. I found this one on Amazon after searching all the stores in town (with NO luck) and Amzon delivered in 1 day. Well done Amazon, well done. And a cute dab of frosting for a cotton tail.

This is a great cookie to make with little ones. You can’t mess it up. And they take no time at all. Nothing gets you into the Holiday spirit like a cookie baking day anyway.

Back to the grind! I like to start Monday’s thinking of 3 things I’m looking forward to during the week. Little or small.

This week includes:

  1. NO evening plans all.week.long. Not even sure how that happened.
  2. George Strait’s new album release on Friday
  3. Watching Bravo’s Summer House tonight….just keepin it real!

What are you looking forward to this week?

Intentions for the Week:

  • share our Spring To-Do’s and Easter outfits
  • find all the zero weight watcher point meals + snacks
  • get all my new plants in the ground
  • work on some new recipes
  • organize the junk drawer
  • put together a simple Trader Joe’s flower arrangement
  • reservations at Barrel House Tavern
  • make 1 point weight watchers cookies #sweettooth
  • gather ingredients for a char-kid-erie
  • pack for the beach

This week on the blog: Easter table setting. Spring To-Do’s. Easter #ootd’s.

Highlights from the weekend……

You’re never going to guess what Cory + I did Friday evening…

Symposium in Davis is legit. Cory took me for the first time a few years ago and I fell in love with this little hidden gem. Amazing Greek food. And that pizza right there was divine! Bill Clinton and Arnold Schwarzenegger have dined at this place…..just a tid bit I thought you should know…lol.

{diy succulent wreath}

Happy Hump day. This post is a day late, I know. Anyone else having major Instagram issues? I can’t post. I can’t comment. Stories wont load. This is day #2 and Instagram needs to get their shit together. Because, I’ve got a lot to share…lol.

First off, I have to give credit to Dixon Florist. I spotted one of these succulent wreaths on their feed right after the Holidays. I could have gone to the store and picked one up. 100% down with supporting all the local businesses. But, I’ve been craving some creativity. That’s a mouth full. Ha. Just using my hands to make shit. So, I called my succulent dealer (aka, my mom) and she dropped off an assortment of the prettiest variety from her yard.

Buying a variety of succulents can get pricey, I get it! There is a group on Facebook called: Woodland Succulent Exchange. A women named Lola Gutierrez sells variety packs for $15! She ships and even does local deliveries. Check her out! Even if you just want to plant some in your yard, it’s a really great deal!

Remember back in October, when I shared my: {fall table setting + DIY succulent pumpkin}

Then in January I shared my: {DIY $12 eucalyptus wreath}

I LOVED seeing all your photos following my two DIY’s. Makes my damn day! For reals!

Well, this is kinda the same idea. A cross between the pumpkin and the wreath. Same tools + materials. Just swapping the pumpkin for a grapevine wreath.

And can we take a moment to mention, I took this photo at 6:30 PM! Do you notice anything. Frickin sunlight! You guys, as much as the time change can suck, I’m here for it. All this extra sunshine is giving me all the spring feels.

{galentine’s day}

kimono ($14): American Eagle | high neck tank ($13): American Eagle | black denim: Madewell

You either LOVE February 14th.  Or you HATE the Holiday and everything it stands for.  I’ve been a lover and a hater of the day, myself.

Whether you’re going out for a romantic dinner with the love of your life.  Or staying in with your kiddos.  Or gal-pal.

Treat your damn self!

And send you gal pal a little something too.

{heart tart}

This heart tart has everything you’d expect from a traditional tart. A butter crust. Creamy center. Topped with a crown of berries. And you know I had to throw a festive Valentine’s Day flare to it. The heart-shaped strawberries are the quite the showstopper!

Although this recipe does call for some prep time….don’t let it get your panties in a bunch. It’s crazy simple. I didn’t even recruit Bay for this one. I did it all on my own. These two hands baked. And that doesn’t happen too often when living with Bay the Baker.

So, I cross my heart and hope to die. Stick a thousand needles in my eye. This recipe is legit easy AF!!

Happy Tuesday peeps! Sorry for the multiple posts today. Yesterday’s {weekend notes} was all set and ready to publish and somehow about half of the post was gone. Deleted. Nowhere to be found. And I chose to drink wine instead of work on it more last night. Priorities…..You know how it goes.

So today you get a BOGO. Except you didn’t have to buy shit to get the second one free. lol.

I was flipping trough a Taste of Home magazine last week and stumbled on these adorable marble meringue hearts. I’m such a sucker for cheesy Holiday tchotchkes + treats. And since I had all 4 ingredients for the meringues and there was no school yesterday, I recruited Bay the Baker to whip some up. I have one on each place setting.
