Make It Monday! A little thank you

I wanted to give my mom a little "thank you" for watching Mr. Jackson while my husband and I went on a date this weekend. She is in the process of getting her yard pulled together, so I thought flowers and herbs would be the perfect little gift. I picked up some cosmos, an orange flower I don't know the name of, and rosemary. I didn't want to present it to her in Home Depot bags, or the plastic containers they come in, so I came up with this. The container is a cheese box that was stained and lined with a neutral fabric. I added the flowers, and topped it all off with spanish moss, and a little note with Jackson's pic saying thank you. What do you think? She was pretty happy with it, and I am too!xo

Food Friday! Millet Muffins

The other day I made my first recipe from Heidi Swanson's new book super natural every day. I decided to make a recipe that was a safe bet for Jackson, and I was right. He loves the millet muffins- and they were so easy to make. If you don't already own it, you can go
here to get the book. Since I have an entire basket of fresh strawberries on hand, I think today I will try the roasted strawberry recipe for breakfast tomorrow- yummy!

Thought I'd throw in this last pic of Jackson and Whiskey boy waiting for daddy to come home last night. They usually wait for him together, side by side, it's pretty dang sweet.
