5 Minute Valentine Cards

02.08.2016 by Sarah |

We cannot believe it’s already Valentine’s day this week!

We pulled out a few favorite black and white supplies and whipped these up in no time!

  1. Folded white card stock in half to make card.
  2. Drew a heart in pencil and painted with black craft paint.
  3. Let paint dry and used THIS fine tip chalkboard pen to write our message.
  4. Tied a little baker’s twine around the card for embellishment HERE.

Happy love week everyone, hope you have a great week!


English Pancakes just in time for Pancake Day!!!

02.05.2016 by sarah and emily |

Pancake day is Tuesday Feb 9th, and we are so excited!
We looked forward to this so much as kids, and we have to say that getting the family together for pancakes for dinner as adults is even better!

boxwood clippings | english pancakes


2 cups flour
2.5 cups milk
2 eggs
pinch of salt
butter for frying


In a large bowl combine flour and salt. Add eggs and whisk together, slowly add milk to form a smooth batter. Heat frying pan on med-high and melt a dab of butter (enough to cover the pan). Add 1/2 c batter to cover whole surface of pan and wait until bubbles form and you can flip it over. Cook other side for about a minute. Pancakes should be barely golden brown.

Our favorite topping combos: strawberry jam + butter, lemon juice + white sugar, nutella + bananas, golden syrup (HERE).

What is your favorite pancake topping? We’d love to give it a try!

Will you celebrate with us this year?

A Great Find: Nature’s Bounty’s E Cream

02.04.2016 by Sarah |

A couple of weeks ago Kimberly (sissy in law) gave me this moisturizer to try. I’d been complaining that my neck was looking wrinkly, and I didn’t want use pricer lotion on my neck, different story for my face! (Now that I’m typing this out, that’s not great reasoning. Who wants a nice wrinkle-free face and a saggy neck?!)


Anyway she let me in on her little secret, of Nature’s Bounty’s E Cream, and since she is one of the best aging ladies I know, I was eager to give it a try!

Well absolutely no complaints. It’s rich, smells lovely and does the job beautifully, once I found out the price I couldn’t wait to share it with you all, a whopping $3.99 at Walgreens (apparently BOGO right now, see HERE).

I’m not thinking I’ll give up on my beloved Clinique yet, but I’ve loved adding this to my nightly routine, especially in these frindgid temperatures!

What winter beauty secrets do you ladies have, do share!
