i miss them
So heres
Whats In MY Purse!
*sadly i found a lot of things that i was missing in my purse
and threw away many pointless receipts
and gum that was attached to my lipstick
this post was good for a little organizational moment in my life
and it reminded me how much i want a new purse, instead of this vortex

Whats in your purse?

An idea for you and your sweetie

I told the boyfriend that i wanted a
One Line A Day Journal
for christmas in my stocking stuffer
and he came up with the great idea
that we both get one!

i never thought he would be into something like this 
but he suggested that we write in it every night together
and then after six months trade journals

we have only done one day
but it was so much fun to do this little activity of writing down one line

Next we are checking out the Smash books... cant wait to get one!

An Early Gift...

I spotted this little wallet/phone case a few months ago
and told the mama about it
and the mama got it for me :)

I have only had it for two days
and almost every person that sees it loves it!

The picture doesn't do the wallet justice
but there is three card holding slots
that the little flap is covering

If you gotten your sister, mom or friend a present yet
i would so recommend this!

Thank you Pinterest

At first i was really hesitant about Pinterest
why in the world do we need another site for me to get addicted to
have another app on my phone
and waste countless hours on

ooooo was i wrong...
((well no all of the above happened))
 i have found so many great food ideas, clothing ideas, fitness tips, life advice, inspiring quotes, home decor and more

Here is something i just had to try
and when i say just had i mean i went to Walmart at 11 pm and got all the supplies
it takes ten minutes to prepare and ten minutes to cook
so easy i couldn't resist

Godfathers Dessert Pizza
Pinned Image
Pinterest Link Hereclick there for recipe measurements!

Here is what mine looked like:
Buy Pizza Dough
Spread it out
Melt Butter and Paint it on
Stab the dough
Sprinkle cinnamon on dough (not pictured here, but i did this)

Mix brown sugar
and flour
and oil
*crucial: remember vegetable oil or olive oil
unfortunately after my trip i realized i didn't have any
so i made due with melting butter and adding milk

Pour mixture onto dough
pop in the oven for ten minutes

Mix powdered sugar
and vanilla
thats it!
I wanted to see if chocolate chips would jazz it up... they didn't really melt very well
wouldn't recommend that
Put on pretty plate


You should try it!
 Tell me if you like it!
Or perhaps the boyfriend and i were just looking for a sugar rush

Happy Wednesday!

Cold Hands but Warm Hearts!

This year i decided to participate in the

Cold hands warm hearts swap!

I should have taken pictures of the package i got from Kaity 
but the excitement of opening the package got the better of me.
i have never been so excited to open a present in my life
it was so much fun to see what a complete blogging stranger 
would pick out for me out of three little questions i answered
and here are my fabulous gifts
(unfortunately i haven't taken an outfit picture with my gloves but that is soon to come)

These gloves are the long kind of gloves
that would go perfect with a cape jacket
now i have an excuse to get a cape jacket
thanks kaity ;)


Super cute headband to match my gloves!
Check out her new etsy shop
oooo and not pictured is the most delicious chapstick i have ever tasted!
its Chai tea! 
so perfect for me!

Thanks so much for my gifts Kaity
so happy to meet another blogger
and so happy to do this swap!
 Now that you have read about how much fun it is
you should do it next year!
