Poofy Wreath

daisi - December 10, 2012

You guys… I got crafty. It all started one night at my friend Jessica’s house. She was telling me about a pom pom wreath she saw at Anthropologie (a whopping $128!) and we decided to make one ourselves. Here is the inspiration wreath: We scheduled a trip to Hobby Lobby and purchased the poofiest yarn we could find, along with a wreath form, some floral pins and some …

menu recap

I was a cooking slacker this week. We had plenty of leftover chicken noodle soup to tide us over, plus we threw in a sushi date AND dinner club, so I didn’t really cook any night this week. Major slacker! I did cook a couple things though so I thought I’d share. Back in December, I received a great dirty santa gift: Silpat, scoop and cookie cook book. Combine …

Christmas Whirlwind 2011

daisi - January 3, 2012

This year Christmas fell on a Sunday, which is great for most people. Except dentists. Sam didn’t get a day off for the holiday this year, so that means we squeezed ALL of our Christmas into 2 days. Saturday we drove to Guthrie for Christmas Eve at my grandparent’s house. These little guys make Christmas so much fun! These are my cousins, yes, cousins. I’m …

Girls Night: Cookbook Exchange

daisi - December 22, 2011

This year, my work friends and I decided to have a cookbook exchange for Christmas. Maybe people have been doing this for years… but it was my first time. It was so fun and so practical, as most cookbooks are less than $20. Plus, who doesn’t love a new cookbook? The only downfall was the weather – it was so cold and rainy, but provided …

New Year Party

I mentioned last week that we attended a Christmas dinner at a friend’s house. Not only was it absolutely beautiful, the menu was incredible. Best meal I’ve had in a LONG time. Whitney really outdid herself this year!! Each place setting came with a beautiful ornament that also served as a party favor. What a great idea! The menu consisted of the following (disclaimer – these …

’tis the season for giving, right? I might be a little behind on my blog reading, but I just saw a wonder thing that a blog I love is doing and I wanted to share. You can read all about it there, but basically she started a forum for helping people who need help. Genius, right? If you need help, or better yet, if you …

bells & loub

This weekend we participated in the annual Jingle Bell run, a fundraiser for the Arthritis Foundation. It’s really fun because everyone dresses up Christmas-y, even the dogs. Since we don’t have a dog, I had to borrow a reindeer. Her name is Foxy, as in Foxy Cleopatra. Here is our “team” for this year. We had a little better turn out last year… But this …

it’s the most wonderful time of the year

daisi - December 8, 2011

Seriously, it is the most wonderful time of the year. It appears that I’m not alone in loving this season. I’ve seen so many blogs, facebook status updates, twitters, and pinners that seem to agree with me. One of my favorite days of the Christmas season is when we decorate for Christmas. Last week when I was out of town (Piper finally decided to grace us with her presence), …
