All Hung Up

No, I have not dropped off the face of the earth, just a little to busy keeping up with life these days!

We are all moved in to our new place in Northern Virginia. The move has been interesting and I am still working in Newport News (about 3 hours away) 3 days a week! We are absolutely LOVING our new place and have been checking out the area every weekend!

On another note...my life got a litle better today when I discovered these...
THESE ARE AMAZING! If you anything like me (ie. you put about 10 holes in your wall to hang 1 picture) these will be your new BFF! I was a littel skeptical at first but they were super easy to put on and seem to really 'hold on loosely" umm I mean tight :)

I next I will use them for something like this...

Love this one from Jenny

I'd rather be blogging....

If you live in the mid/south east you are probably aware that we are in for a huge winter storm starting tomorrow. Well I will be driving right into it while heading up to DC for the weekend. Point being I really should be: A) doing laundry, B) cleaning up the seriously herendous mess I made in the kitchen earlier while making lasagna for a new mommy and daddy (see below) or C) preparing for one of the three interviews I have on monday and tuesday.

Who needs to do things like that when you have two majorly more important things to do like:

A) Snuggle this delicious bundle for 2.5 hours 

B) Tell you that I would most certainly give my first born to have this  indescribably lovely Turquoise Empire Chandelier by Marjorie Skouras (from the new HB) my dining room.... did I ever mention it (my dining room) is turquoise and red... probably not... because it is not finished. 
*disclaimer: for those of you who think I am a horrible, heartless person who would give up her child for a piece of home decor... I do not currently have a first, second, third or nineteenth born and I am sure I will not give them up when I do.... ok, maybe just loan them out?? :) jk of course. 

Now back to my much less exciting list of to-dos...

Yummy Pretzels

Disclaimer: If you eat all of these within a hour of baking them...it is NOT my fault! 

This was my very first time cooking with yeast. It took 2 times for me to get it right. The first dough I made just wasn't right but the second time was delicious! This recipe made 6 "mini" pretzels. My hubby ate 4 of them within 30 minutes of them coming out of the over and I may or may not have finished off the last 2 :)

Back later with the quintessential New Years Resolutions post....*spoiler alert*...starting to wear horrible acid wash jeans/ leggings is so not one of them!
