Life, Dessert, Kitty Love & Thanks Yous....

First of all, I want to give another shoutout to Leah of Sookie Says for sending me these amazing vintage butterfly squares.  I cant wait to figure out what I want to make with them.  They are so perfectly sweet and me.  Such an amazing gift, thank you Leah.  And a sweet little orange lace and button headband she made, just darling!

Last week I got a random idea to make banana dessert (kind of for dinner, shhhhh)... It was soooo yummy!  

bananas (slightly fried in a skillet)
peanut butter
cacoa powder (optional)
a glass of milk (a must)

serve hot!

And, we got our new dining room table in!!!  So we ate our dessert as our first meal together at the table.  And honestly we dont sit at it for dinner.  Its just not our style.  But its really come in handy with company and for drawing ideas out!  As you can see, we dont have chairs for it yet.  I stole the bench from another desk for now.

I just had to leave you with this uber precious photo of Bella.  We bring Violet's outside chair in when it rains so it doesnt get all smelly and Bella just loves it.  She gets on top of it and gets all sorts of frisky.  So cute.
Is she seriously not the cutest kitty in all of the world?

Right before bed last night we found another scorpion inside, in the bedroom!  Everytime I woke up last night the first thing I thought of was scorpion...  And this morning has already been eventful... I went outside to see what Violet was barking at to find her playing with a deer on the other side of the fence.  At least I think they were playing, or getting to know one another.  She was soooo excited.  I had to bring her in though b/c she would not settle down or stop barking.  And the deer scared me just a bit.  It had a bit of drool hanging out of its mouth, and Im not sure if it was just b/c it was excited or if it was sick.  It is still outside waiting for Violet to come back out and play.

As for the rest of the day, work, house cleaning and dentist are on the list.  fun huh?



  1. oh yum! Looks so good! I've actually made something similar while camping---just thrown it all in foila and let it cook together. Quite delish:)

    (oh, and I have the same floral mug--love it!)

  2. Molly is in my lap, she waved at Bella, then pointed at her and said "Kitty!" over and over. Lol.

  3. aww such a sweetheart violet is! and man, I'd be scared if there was a deer in my porch!

  4. OOOOOO yum! We grilled bananas not too long ago. They had chocolate shoved in the peel. Your kitty looks so cute and thoughtful. I love the many expressions cats can have =)

  5. Super cute kitty picture! :) Your dog/deer story reminded me of a story of my own. One morning I was heading out to work, I opened my front door, and there was a deer standing on my front porch staring at me! That is not something you expect to see when you open your door. Lol. We looked at each other for a moment and then I said "hello deer-friend" and then she ran off! It was such a special thing to happen...I really enjoyed it! :)

  6. oh my gosh! i love your new dining table, would totally inspire me to eat around it as well! do you mind saying where you purchased it from?


Thank you so much for your sweet comments!
