One Tray Meal

Friday, August 28th, 2015

We’re always excited to put the oven on and start cooking at the beginning of fall, are you the same?

How about making dinner on just one baking tray and that’s all!

We sliced up our veggies and thawed chicken, placed them on a baking sheet, drizzled with olive oil and seasoned with s+p.

Bake at 350 for about 40 mins until veggies are tender and chicken is cooked through!

A delicious, healthy meal with only one dish to clean up…Winner, winner chicken dinner!

Faking It Greenery

Thursday, February 19th, 2015

I have a really hard time keeping houseplants alive, it is the bane of my existence!

I saw these leaves at Michaels a few weeks back and at $1.79 a stem thought they might add a little color to our mid-winter home.

I placed a stem or two in white pitchers and dotted them around the house. They are really working to brighten things up around herre and for a few dollars they are almost as good as the real deal!

If you like faux greenery, these $1.79 ones are a must!

The Twins’ First Birthday Party: Classic Winnie the Pooh Theme

Tuesday, February 17th, 2015

Can you believe Sarah’s twins are one?!

What a year we’ve had since the arrival of Elizabeth and Hannah! A year full of smiles, giggles, and more diapers than we can count.

A little party for their birthday lunch was in order! Sarah chose a classic Winnie-The-Pooh theme which was perfect for our little pooh-bear and piglet.

We made these garlands with simple string and tying all sorts of ornaments, ribbons and ‘bits and bobs’ in pink, gold and silver.

This is the easiest and cheapest way we have found to make each holiday a little special in our homes!

Hope you all have a lovely week,

Sarah + Emily xoxo
