Cinnamon Toast Crunch muffin mix review...almost.

They were handing out free sample boxes of Betty Crocker's new muffin mix at the grocery store.  Our family loves Cinnamon Toast Crunch so it was basically a score...
Super easy to make.  Just add 3 ingredients.

Sprinkle with the inclosed topping before you bake...

They looked pretty good...

So how were they, you ask?

 Left them in the middle of our kitchen island, all prettied-up with good ol' Press-n-Seal, and went off on some errands...

Came home to  an empty kitchen island... 

and a naughty girl...

So, no word on how good that muffin mix is ( nor how in the he*#  she got up there)...

Ribbon Wall Trim

This is such an interesting look.  I can't decide if it looks difficult to do or an easy DIY.  Either way, adding nailhead trim is time consuming...

We do love the texture and interest it adds to these spaces. You can use basic grosgrain ribbon or something like burlap trim...

Photos and "Finds"

Super excited because a professional photographer took some photos
 of my house today for my contractor who wants to use them on his website...
I made my kids stay out of the clean bathroom all day know how that goes. 

My contractor is awesome. How many people can say that? My husband had known him from college and he is everything you want a contractor to be: honest, responsive, fair, skilled, friendly, and absolutely "gets" your design aesthetic, even if it his not his own. He brings so much to the table and I feel so lucky that he worked with us.
More about him and his website coming soon!!!
Can't wait to get some "real"  pictures... since clearly my photography skills are clearly lacking:)

 On a different note, some recent "finds" we wanted to show you..
I found this craft paper table runner at Paper Source. It is 50 feet of paper and I love it!

see more place mats and runners at Cake Vintage
my kids can't wait to color it!
I also found this lamp, shade and trophies at Target in their new Threshold collection,
have you seen it?

We really needed a rug and "something soft" was requested by the kids and the dog so I bought this from Rugs USA for 75% off  and free shipping, $149 for a 6 x 9. It sheds A LOT but I am hoping that gets better with time.

So far, the kids (and dog) are loving it.

Whew...just a little bit of what's been going on at in your back pocket...

Admiring: Gold Lamps

I've been admiring interesting gold lamps.  Now, not like your grandmothers brass lamps, but modern gold lamps.  A couple of these would update my buffet or end table.  Here's some inspiration...

So What Wednesday...

Hi everyone...Hope you're having a great week. more importantly, i hope you're keeping up with the "So What?" attitiude...

"So What?"  if...

  • I'm gonna buy the "airbrush app" for my phone photos. Genius.

  • Jen may have been on her way to Zumba and accidentally ended up at the nail salon.

  • I was wearing high heels with my yoga pants when the sprinkler guy came to the door. (Breaking the heels in for my daughter...homecoming)

  • you know there's a slight problem when you know what song is coming next on the Homegoods "Musak" tract.

Keep those "so whats" coming...
Have a great day from in your back pocket.
