Keep ’em coming.  I’m cracking up at all of the amazing animal costume pics I’ve been seeing.  Oh the things our pets do for us, they are the best!  Found this pic here with a handful of other hilarious pet costumes.

Happy Halloween weekend everyone!

Homemade French Crepes.

This weekend I made one of the most delicious and easiest recipes for breakfast: French Crepes! Honestly, you probably have most of the ingredients in your pantry already so you should give it a try. And if I can do it, so can you!

(You will need: 1 cup of flour, 2 eggs, 2 tablespoons of melted butter, a half cup of milk, and a pinch of salt. The filling can consist of your favorite fruits and jams or my favorite, Nutella!)

(In a large bowl, whisk the flour and eggs together)

(Slowly whisk in the milk, a half cup of water, salt, and melted butter until you get a smooth consistency)

(Pour the batter in a lightly buttered pan over medium high heat in quarter cup increments. The thinner the pour, the better)

(After 2 minutes flip over your crepe and cook for another 30 seconds)

(Fold in half and serve when warm)

You can also get creative for breakfast and scramble eggs with cheese and serve in your crepe. For dinner, I have made Pesto Parmesan Chicken crepes. It’s one of the simplest things to cook and it always impresses people because it looks fancier than it is. These crepes take literally 2 minutes and 30 seconds to cook, it doesn’t get better than that!

Berry Full.

IMG_8812While shooting for the blog a few weekends ago, Chels and I knew we needed to grab some snacks to take with us outdoors because we get real cranky without anything to eat for too long.  Chelsea had this great idea to throw some berries in a few glasses to bring with us so we could put them on the ground and know bugs weren’t going to get to them.  Then we realized these would be great party favors, table decorators, or even just a good way to display some healthy snacks.  Since it’s the season of ripe fruit, why not put some out for your friends/guests to enjoy!?

This was an easy, accidental find but a great one at that!  Surprise yourself or a friend with a healthy snack and fun wine glass to take home 😀

Stuff Those Stockings!

cute xmas stockings

Alright, Christmas is next week and if you are busy working then you know what it’s like to have time fly by.  Our favorite gift part of Christmas is the stockings because they are usually filled with awesome trinkets and random sugary treats that you wouldn’t normally splurge on.  Check out some of our favorite stocking stuffer ideas for women (and maybe some men) and become easily prepared for the big day!

lottery tickets(Lottery scratcher tickets!  They are cheap and you could make someone else a winner, even if not it’s still fun to scratch away.  Someone always at least wins a new ticket.)

ryan gosling calendar(Ummm hello!  A mini Ryan Gosling calendar!  Who wouldn’t want to wake up to this on the daily…)

cute-happy-pink-post-it-smile(Cute stationary!  It makes work much more fun to (non)secretively pass notes like you are in middle school again)

Beautiful Headband(Sparkly headband for a lucky girl to wear for New Years!  Maybe even in Paris… =D)

blue-bottle-coffee(A gift card even if just for one coffee to a more expensive coffee shop that’s close to their office – it’s a real treat!)

We love giving to our friends and family at Christmas.  The most important thing during the holidays is getting to spend time with your closest friends and family but since giving gifts happens along the way, we thought we’d share some of our gift ideas.
