The Little Things In Life...

I love the idea of leaving little love notes for the Mister. Yes, I know face to face communication is best. However, being in the digital world sometimes I get lost in the shuffle and find my self sending more and more text messages and e-cards. 

With that being said, I realized the other day that my local Dollar Tree sales these super cute " I'm thinking about you cards" I believe for 2 for $1. I try to leave one for the mister at least once a month. In places he lease expects it. Like in his car on his seat or in his laptop or even on the bathroom mirror. Even though this idea is super simple. It does add a little spice into our relationship.

How are things going in your neck of the woods?

Homemade French Toast with Leftover French Bread

If you follow me on SnapChat this picture probably looks familiar. I purchased a loaf of French Bread from Walmart for the Mister's Birthday dinner ( to make garlic bread with). I pretty much know that if I don't use this bread up it would have gone to waste. For some reason I usually make French toast with regular sliced bread and never even considered using French bread. Let me just say that this treat was simply delicious. I'm a bread person so I love the texture of this bread. I opted to dust the toast with some confectioner sugar, and drizzled the syrup, just to add the restaurant touch. 

Side note: Also, I have been searching for some affordable dishes. You know, to take cute pictures with. I found these bad boys at the Dollar Tree. Since Home Goods usually sales plates starting at $5 each. I thought I did pretty good with this find. I'm actually waiting to see if I could find a white square plate set on sale at one of my favorite stores.

Anywho, have you tried and new recipes lately?

My Favorite (Project 52)

 It's amazing how long I have owned my DSLR camera and never did a mini photo shoot with my son. On a whim last week I decided to grab the Mister's camera and go in the backyard to make things happen (he has a t3i and I own a T3). At first my son was not trying to hear it. It thought for some reason the pictures were going to come out crappy. To his surprise the pictures came out great. I already knew the pictures were going to come out nice because I was taking them. LOL. Plus, my new  camera lens haven't had a break since the day it came out of the box. 

Anywho, these are my two favorites from our mini shoot.

I'm Officially a IMAC Owner

If you follow me on social media you heard the news of me purchasing my IMac. I am super excited and in all at the same time. I wanted to share with you guys my experience. 

I went to my local Apple store around noon time on Thursday. I didn't have an appointment and it
 took about five minutes for a Genius to see me. Prior going to the store I narrowed down my search to two computers that I wanted and that we're my price range. I did the calculations as well online of what the total price would be including. However I did have questions in regards to what the actual tech wording means inregards to each computer. The person I worked with was very helpful in assisting me with answering all of my questions. (It also did help that I did go to the store a couple of months ago and they were able to answer my questions as well.) 

I opted to pay cash for the device and one of the reasons being is that Dave Ramsey stated that you feel more when you pay with cash versus paying with a debit card or credit card ( it ismore meaningful to you. )

I love how Apple actually sits and shows you how to install your device and answer any questions that you may have at the moment. I actually had no idea how super simple it was to install iMac. Like really, really simple. 

(The Mister carrying my iMac to the car)

Yes, my baby made it home safe and sound. I still have no idea what I'm doing and I'm learning as i go. I do however own iPhone and iPad so I'm kind of familiar with what Apple has to offer. 

Trust me YouTube and Pinterest have been a huge help!!

Thanks for stopping by!

Mommy Style #OFTD

With fall right around the corner. ( Insert sad face). I grabbed this baby off of my clothing rack. The next time I wear this dress I plan on wearing the dress belted. The blazer is one of my current favorites. I love how versatile this item is. 

Necklace: EBay 
Dress: thrifted 
Blazer: thrifted
Shoes: Target

If I'm not mistaken, the total for this attire was under $25 including the shoes. 

Yup, that's a reason the twirl!
