Yes, those are Cake Batter Pancakes.


Sweet Jesus.

I first spotted these on The Social Secretary and with some investigating I found that the lovely Jessica of How Sweet It Is is the mastermind behind these delectable little fella's.***

I am drooling on my keyboard as I type this post. I love ANYTHING that taste like cake batter. Actually I love all kinds of batter-cake, brownie, pie, muffin... I tend to think the batter taste better than the finished product most of the time. Alas, this does not mean I don't eat the finished product, because I do. Oh, how I do. Nom, nom, nom.

My sister's birthday is coming up I wonder how she feels about these bright and early in the morn. I would wake up at like 3:00am for these. Seriously.

***Oh SNAP-gurl's got helluva recipe list too. drrrrroooooooolllling...

Alice, Again...

Monday, February 21, 2011

Thank you so much to 4leafclover for featuring my "Six Impossible Things" print in her Alice, Again... Etsy Treasury! I don't think I will ever get tired of Alice in Wonderland. So magical and dreamy!

I also want to thank everyone for the kind words regarding last week's post. I didn't mean to ramble on and on but sometimes it helps me to get my feelings out. I appreciate all the comments and emails from yall. You really do know how to lift a gal's spirit.

Now, lets get this Monday over with. Pretty soon it will be Friday. :)

One last thing: I have a pretty rad make-over that I am going share with yall towards the end of the week. I think you are going to love it. Stay tuned!

I'm in a funk... (possible long rambling post ahead)

Thursday, February 17, 2011

I'm in a funk yall. I'm not sure if you have noticed I have been sort of quiet on the blog... I think I am possibly on the verge of a mental breakdown. I am anxious, nervous, jittery, can't concentrate, can't finish tasks and I have this nagging feeling like I am forgetting something. Basically I feel overwhelmed and lost.

I'm not looking for a pity party. I just need to get my feelings out. I am starting to feel overwhelmed with blogs and all that is "IN" right now. How if you don't "discover" something first you are just a follower of a trend. I am jealous of the bloggers and Etsy sellers who have made it big and able to quit their day jobs to peruse their passion. I feel like a little fish in a big sea. I know this is a direct relation of them putting the time and effort and patience into their craft (whatever it may be). I am jealous of the people who are able to stay at home with children (or no children) who have stability in their lives and have nothing to lose when they start their side projects or small businesses.

I feel like I have so many ideas that it paralyzes me. I start something and then think of the other 5 million things that I could be doing that would be just as great-IF NOT BETTER. I don't even know where to start in trying to create my own business but I know if I COULD start it I would make it AMAZING. I mean, I don't even know what my business would be... A jewelry, paper goods, screen printing, graphic design, wedding planning, all around Empire of Awesome?
Damn you ADD. You will be the death of me.

Am I the only one who ever feels this way?! I hate it. I hate feeling jealous and lost.

I really miss my mom and wish she was here to give me advice.

I am trying to work through these feelings. I think a lot of sister/friend/family time will help. A 6 pack of beer and a front porch will too.

I may or may not pop in tomorrow or not. If not, I hope you all have a wonderful weekend.

Happy Friday!

I am attending a bachelorette party this weekend and have had the hardest time finding something in my closet to wear. I know (at least I think) I have good pieces to work with but I can never seem to put them together in the right way...

I also always seem to want go buy the ONE thing that will complete my outfit like, THE DAY I AM LEAVING. For example:


Audrey from Living Foxy has the cutest outfits! I need to learn how to switch thing up like her and not stay in my "comfort zone" when I dress. Sometimes I leave the house looking like I am high school-literally. People probably think I am skipping school.

Her blog is totally cute AND she is hosting a GIVEAWAY for all you peeps out there. Everyone needs a pair of feather earrings in their jewelry collection! Go check out her blog, Living Foxy, for all the details!

Have a WONDERFUL weekend everyone!
