Why have I never ever heard of this? Donuts made from only Pillsbury grand biscuits, oil and sugar (or chocolate syrup) sound too easy to be true but apparently it’s a thing. A really big, thing and I totally want in on this phenomenon.

It’s only Wednesday but I know what I want to do for my 3 day weekend. What about you?
To me this Memorial Day weekend marks the beginning of Picnic/BBQ season and I couldn’t be happier. That means tri-tip, ice cream sundaes and camping and that’s fine with me.
See ya gloomy weather and bring on the sunshine.
If you didn’t go to the Maker Faire this past weekend you missed out but don’t worry there will be another one in 2014.
This year was my first time and there fair and there was so much to do and see it was sometimes a bit overwhelming.I mean, where else can you see R2-D2 robots, miltary garden nomes and cupcake tricycles?
Oh and these too.
A little nerdy but alot of fun.
It’s Friday and that means it’s time to start making plans for the weekend if you haven’t already and might I suggest an Estate Sale?

I know I don’t talk about him too much but Indy is my 4-legged baby. Of course to show my Italian greyhound pride I fancy anything with greyhounds on it and I don’t discriminate. My greyhound blanket, love it. My greyhound socks, adorable. In fact yesterday I even wore my greyhound pin.
So of course, when I saw this DIY t-shirt tutorial from Merrick of Merrick’s Art I thought a greyhound t-shirt would be a perfect addition to my collection. I haven’t made one yet but when I do I’ll post an update.
Anything you’re totally obsessed with that you’d like to share?
So cute! Why did I never think of this?

AND did I mention they’re really cute?
I haven’t read the book and I haven’t seen the movie but the previews for The Great Gatsby look like there’s a lot the glitz and glamour. Two of my favorite things!
Here’s to the roaring 1920′s!
I love Cake Batter Cookies and I can’t imagine what I would have done if I’d found THIS recipe years ago. I’d probably have eaten so many of these things I would have made myself sick. Alot.
If easy, quick and delicious is just up your alley you have to try them out. 10pm on a Wednesday night and you need cookies for little Johnny’s class tomorrow? No problem! Make some cake batter cookies. I promise you won’t hear any complaints.
In honor of all Mothers out there I’d like to wish everyone a very Happy Mother’s Day!
All Mother’s love handmade gifts (at least I’m hope they do) so below I’ve included a few ideas. A few are a little more involved but if you can buy some cheese cloth, cut it into squares, spoon a little loose leaf tea onto it and tie a string around it to make these DIY Tea Bags, I really can’t help you.
