I was watching a new show the other night, a crime show set in Boston. The main character Rizzoli , was eating a Fluffernutter for lunch. I love Fluffernutter sandwiches, they were a lunch box staple growing up on the east coast. So here you go, try it!

2 slices of bread, spread with 2 Tbs of peanut butter and 2 Tbs of Fluff (marshmallow creme), cutting off the crusts is optional. Delicious! Enjoy.

Do you love this !!?

This painted armoire makes me want to go find an armoire to paint! So inspiring. I am helping my (almost) 12yr old daughter redecorate her room and this would so work for her.  Maybe we'll handpaint some cuteness on her existing furniture to compliment her new bed linens.

Oh, how I wish....

Oh, how I wish my bedroom looked like this -

- ours is currently a (once popular) green paint color with dark wood furniture and a cluttered home office in the retreat area. I am so going to buy some paint this weekend! this month!  And maybe talk my husband into covering our headboard with padding and fabric. Am I crazy? It is supposed to be 102 degrees this weekend. Hold that thought, I'll just shop for fabric, painting can wait til it is cooler.

My friend Peggy gave me a bag of apples from her backyard tree. So the other day I made some homemade applesauce. It was delicious.

Patriotic Cake

My husband brought home a whole bunch of fresh strawberries, so my daughter made a holiday themed cake and used them on the top. She baked a standard white cake and added royal blue food coloring, white frosting, red sugar and strawberries - easy and delicious!
