Breakfast Fail

I like to dabble in lots of things. I enjoy crafting, decorating, organizing, baking, couponing, playing sports with my man, and since I’ve been married I have desperately been trying to dabble in cooking. Some days it’s great and others…eh…not so much. I have learned so far that cooking doesn’t come naturally for me and I must plan ahead for things to work well in the kitchen. Now over the last 2 years of marriage, I have succeeded on several occasions to prepare a noteworthy meal. And then, God chooses to teach me humility. One time I somehow put 2 cups of sugar and butter into white rice and served it with dinner. I also tried to make calzones once, and used twice as mush dough as I should have and ended up with a meal served 2 hours late and still raw. I have other stories, but I’ll spare you.

This week I tried to make a simple Avocado Bacon and Eggs breakfast dish I had pinned here. Below is the pretty picture from the recipe and my sad attempt.



I’m very confident that this disaster was my own fault for not following the directions close enough. I am also here to admit that I failed at this breakfast attempt. I sure hope you appreciate my honesty. Ryan and I got a good laugh about this before I scratched it and made just bacon and eggs. If you attempt this one, I recommend carving a good amount of the avocado out of the shell BEFORE cracking an egg in it. 🙂

Happy cooking.

Love, Steph

Pinterest Inspired: TOMS make-over

I’ve had the above pair of solid white TOMS for a few years now and although they are move comfortable than ever now, they are beginning to look a bit lackluster.  So I began looking for fun ways to spruce … Continue reading



Repin….repin…repin….yes please!

The website, Pinterest, has recently taken my social media world by storm. It has almost completely eliminated Facebook from my mind. I hardly spend any time on FB anymore (but if you do, friend me here haha) But I do spend (probably too) much of my time on Pinterest (follow my boards here). I was actively looking for a similiar product to keep stuff I stumbled onto on the web when I found Pinterest. And now I’m just a little bit obsessed. I have found such great recipes to try, crafts to make as gifts and for my home, brilliant repurposing projects, etc.  I can’t say enough about how much I love it.

To celebrate my new found love of Pinterest, and to not allow myself to feel inferior to the profound people who post there, I have decided to create a series on this blog dedicated to all the projects, recipes, fashions, etc. that I try after “pinning” them. I’m really excited about this and I already have a few projects that I can’t wait to share with you. I won’t dedicate this blog soley to Pinterest though, I hope to sprinkle these posts around others as well.

Happy Pinning!
