Work hard and...

Well, its Saturday.

Today, I am working but I thought I would
 take a break and grace you all with this super 
cute poster from Sweet Home Style. Because,
whats the use of working hard and getting 
ahead if everyone hates you?

 Its my opinion that being nice to people 
is an important reminder.

 So my lovely readers, thank you for stopping in, 
and have I told you how lovely you look today?


Double Chocolate Friday!

Oh My Gooey Chocolate Gotta Have it!
Happy Friday {Eat Double!}

Nonstick vegetable oil spray
1 1/2 cups bittersweet chocolate chips (about 9 ounces), divided
3 large egg whites, room temperature
2 1/2 cups powdered sugar, divided (I used 2 cups)
1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1 tablespoon cornstarch
1/4 teaspoon salt

Preheat oven to 350°F. Spray 2 large baking sheets 
with nonstick spray. Melt 1 cup chocolate chips 
in glass bowl in microwave, stirring 
twice, about 2 minutes. Cool slightly.
Using electric mixer, beat whites in large bowl to 
soft peaks. Gradually beat in 1 (I halved the sugar 
here) cup sugar. Continue beating until mixture resembles 
soft marshmallow creme. Whisk 1 cup sugar, cocoa, 
cornstarch, and salt in medium bowl to blend. On low 
speed, beat dry ingredients into meringue. Stir in 
lukewarm chocolate and 1/2 cup chocolate 
chips (dough will become very stiff).

Place 1/2 cup sugar in bowl. Roll 1 rounded tablespoon 
dough into ball; roll in sugar, coating thickly. Place on
 prepared sheet. Repeat with remaining dough, spacing
 2 inches apart. Bake until puffed and tops crack, about 
10 minutes. Cool on sheets on rack 10 
minutes. Transfer to rack; cool.

Yield: Makes about 18


Wake-Up Call

So...If you have trouble waking up in the morning
consider this money shredding alarm clock. That would
sure rip you out of your slumber wouldn't it?

Can you imagine dashing to the alarm clock in a panic
every morning? Stubbing your toes and throwing your cat 
over your shoulder to make it on time. All in the name of
waking up on time. Now thats commitment.


Books for Kids

{Best Title too}

{BEST interactive!}

{I remember my Dad reading this series to me night 
after night until we made it through all three books...
its ALWAYS been one of my favorites...xox}

Yesterday, I was DELIGHTED to visit Design Mom 
and see that Gabrielle had compiled a list of the 
TOP 50 Picture books for kids... Oh Joy! I pulled 
out a few of my Favorite-Favs from her list but urge 
you to visit and check out the entire list yourself. 
Its like a trip down memory lane {xox}

The only books I would add to her fabulous list are;
{But I guess in a list limited to 50, someone 
has to get cut...sigh.}

Enjoy the Trip...


Wheat anyone?

Gluten FREE?!
Thats me for the next ten days. I am testing a theory and 
seeing if it helps my migraines...hoping!
Does anyone have any advice?


Botanical Prints = LOVE

Don't these photographs from Miles of Light remind you of a zen garden?
Imagine a white wall and three of these prints lined along it. 
... I feel calmer already ...

Cute little Onesie.

Oh my goodness. CUTE!
I don't have any twins in my family so the odds of 
having twins are pretty low, but aren't these 
onesies oh so cute!? Do Twins run in your family?
