Food Friday! A Twist on Birthday Cake

My little one will be turning one very soon! I've been giving thought to having a small family birthday party, and of course to food! I know I could go the typical birthday cake route, but I won't. He has such a love of oranges, so I've decided to make these little cakes!

Glazed Sour Orange and Coconut Pudding Cakes

Don't they look yummy! Plus you can't beat the individual portions, that way mommy won't overindulge!

A Few New Books

Are you lacking inspiration? Here are three new books about to be released, that should do just that. You can pre-order all of them at I really want all three, but I think for now I will settle for just one. Then find a special occasion to treat myself to the second and third.

The Sweetest Valentine of All

Happy Valentine's Day!
Happy 10 mos. to my sweet Jackson.
I couldn't ask for a better Valentine. Life feels pretty darn great. I hope all of you have a special someone to share this day with.
friday night we had mexican food at our favorite local spot. Jackson loves rice and beans, and sitting on daddy's lap.
taken a break from all the activity.

Sunday at the park. Yes, he is walking, and running.
He loves rocks, and showing mommy his finds.

House Envy!

Awhile back I was searching for bathroom inspiration on Designsponge. There was one bathroom in particular that caught my eye. When I clicked on it, I found the link to images of the entire home of Samantha Reitmayer of Style / SWOON, and I immediately fell in love. With the exception of a few decorating bits and pieces, the entire house SCREAMS me! I will always love houses that feel more masculine, but with small feminine touches. Are you ready??? Here it is!
