Our Life Through My iPhone

I keep feeling like the days are getting away from me!
We are good and keeping busy working on projects, organizing the house, and playing with P and F.
Sorry for the lack of posts.
Still getting my act together I guess..
Here are some shots of our life through my iphone.

Ford S.R. at Two Months

Oh, this boy of mine.
He is beyond sweet.
Sleeps like a dream.
Still snorts when hungry.
Has the most handsome little face.
Is a big chubby boy. 
Dimpled cheeks and chin.
Coos to mommy.
And can't help but smile when we make eye contact.
My Father in heaven gave him to me at a time I'd need peace, comfort, and love.
And for that I am grateful.
I love you wonderful Mister.

I Have My Eyes On You! Valentine

On Sunday, Presley and I decided to make her valentines.
We took a look in the craft closet, and Presley had to use the "googly eyes"!
So after some brainstorming, this is what we came up with!

I created this in Illustrator,
And then Presley went through and drew each of her friends on the faces.
There was nothing funnier/sweeter than hearing her talk about what color hair they had, if it was long or short, if they had eyelashes, etc.
This simple valentine, was a lot of fun!

Here is how a few turned out

Happy Valentine's Day!

Chocolate Chip Salted Caramel Bars

I have a sweet treat to share with you in honor of Valentine's Day.
My friend and professional baker Brooke told me about these bars from Two Peas and Their Pod, and I knew I had to try them!  
 I have only made them with my staple cookie recipe.  (Recipe below.)
But I just had Brooke's that we made from their recipe too, and they were incredible.
Mine come out less of a bar and more of a thick cookie, both are amazing!

Here is my take on this sweet treat:

Cookie Recipe:
(adapted from my girl Caitlin's recipe)

1 cup butter
1 cup sugar
1 cup brown sugar
2 eggs
1 1/2 t vanilla
3 cups flour
1 t baking soda
1 t salt
2 bars good chocolate, chopped*
1/2 bag chocolate chips*

*I alternate the bar of chocolate and the chips, I like to have mixed chocolates.
For example, bars of dark chocolate and milk chocolate chips.
If I don't have bars I will just use two different bags of chocolate chips.

10 oz caramel squares
3 T evaporated milk

Sea salt, for sprinkling

Preheat oven to 325 degrees.
Make the cookie dough.
Melt caramel and evaporated milk in a pan, stirring constantly.
In a 11x7 pan put a layer of cookie dough,
Add caramel on top, sprinkle with sea salt
Drop small spoonfuls of cookie dough on top, covering caramel.
Sprinkle more sea salt.
Bake in preheated oven for 18-20 minutes.
Let cool, it is even better the next day when the caramel has cooled.

Heart Banner DIY

I made this super simple heart banner and thought I'd share!

All you need:
Colored Paper 
Embroidery Thread

 Cut your paper into varying sized hearts.

Thread your needle and sew hearts together.
Fold heart in half and sew about a 1/4 inch in so that the hearts don't lay flat.

To add some interest randomly layer hearts.

Once your hearts are all strung, tie each end.
Glue a yarn hook onto each end and hang up as a banner.
These could also be darling hanging from the ceiling so that you can see all angles of the hearts.

Happy Valentines Day!
