Black and Brown

My friend and I were discussing one of our fall must-haves: tall brown boots.  She asked what I thought about wearing them with black jeggings.  In the past I have had issues with the whole wearing-brown-with-black thing, however I am now willing to reconsider if it's done right.  Here are some 'right' examples I found on Pinterest.

I think in all of these the key is to keep everything neutral and have at least one other accessory in the same brown color.

Found Love

I found this hair tie in my bathroom drawer the other day.  It was just sitting there, in the shape of a heart reminding me that I am loved.
You are loved, too.
Let's send out some love today.

Thursday Latelies

Thanks again to Bex for reminding us to be thankful every week.  These are some things that have brought me joy...

My new couch pillow from 'The Yard Sale'       

The best hair oil ever! It really is a miracle!

I've been inspired by all the Missoni craziness lately and bags with patterns like these:

They All Hate Us
Free People

  I was looking through my closet and rediscovered a bag that a friend gave me years ago. It's perfect!

I also rediscovered a necklace...

Easy Donuts

My husband makes these yummy donuts for us on Saturday mornings.  His mom made them for him when he was a kid. They are so easy, and so yummy. (My favorite king of recipe.) 

Easy Donuts

1 package Pilsbury Buttermilk Biscuits
2 cups vegetable oil
powdered sugar

1. Heat the oil in a large pan.

2. Take each biscuit and make a hole in the middle with your fingers.

3. Fry one side until light brown and crispy.  Turn them over and fry the other side.

4. Sprinkle with cinnamon/sugar or powdered sugar.

Pin of the week

I've decided to stop just pinning, and start doing.  I am really intentional with my pins on Pinterest. (check it out if you haven't yet. It's a visual pin board of your internet findings.) I only pin things that I would do/wear/eat/make.  So, I am putting it into action. I want to do/wear/eat/make at least 1 thing a week and post my results. So, I started with an easy one. Isn't that the best way to start? Another coffee picture...  found on Pinterest
I need more braelets! And more coffee!

Semi-Homemade Pita Chips

I hate even using the word 'homemade' in this title, because I really didn't make these. I basically cut and toasted store-bought pita bread.  Those who know me know that's pretty domestic in my book.  I'm sure it's more cost-effective than buying pita chips, and I really prefer the taste.  They are lighter in crunch, and this really brings out the sweet wheat flavor of the pita. The salt adds the sweet/salty factor.  I love these with cheese and fruit for a light lunch.

Semi-Homemade Pita Chips

1 or 2 whole wheat pitas
olive oil
seasoning salt or sea salt

1. Heat the oven to 350 degrees.

2.  Open the pita and cut each half into triangles. (Don't look too closely at mine.)

3.  Sprinkle a cookie sheet with olive oil and toss the pita triangles in the oil.

4.  Sprinkle with salt.

4.  Bake for 10 min, or until pita is crunchy and slightly brown. (Watch closely - these burn easily!)

5.  Serve with fruit and cheese or your favorite dip.

Thursday Latelies

It perplexes me how I don't know that my daughter's teething until I find a new tooth poking through.  You'd think the unexplained crankiness would be a red flag, but I never catch on.  It always makes for a rough week for all of us.  Thanks to Thursday Latelies and Bex for reminding me to be thankful and see good in all things.  Here are a few things that helped me get through my week.  Be sure to visit Bex...A Style Diary and the others who have linked up.
