yummy low-cal apple treat

My mom taught me a really yum "recipe" for a low-cal treat

  • a few Granny Smith apples
  • Molly McButter
  • Cinnamon
  • Splenda

you first boil about 2 cups water then turn down to low-medium. cut the apples in slices and add to water.
then sprinkle the butter, cinnamon and sugar on it and let sit for about 10 min
then enjoy
perfect for Fall

my mom is awesome and creative

So mom and i did a little shopping last weekend while the boys went into the hunting/athletics store.
You may call me crazy but I love to go to City Trends to see if I can ever find fun cheap shoes. Well this is what mom found for me for $5

she had an idea in mind...
which was this

aren't they so cute?!
I love how my mom's creative mind works
she loves my last name and loves making me fun stuff for it :)

simple things

today is a very special day
it's opening day of MSU football!!!
woo whoo!!!

I want to mention how thankful I am of my husband and that he is so helpful and patient with my new DIY craft obsession
also thankful for inheriting my mothers creativity

these two projects were completed last night and without his help would not be as perfect as they are:
i just love the look of the "antique" frames with scrapbook paper...makes me smile
