I have been trying to eat a bit healthier and move more! So I have been eating yogurt, fruit and granola for breakfast.  Granola is wayyyyyy pricey at the grocery store. So I decided to make my own.  So easy and delicious. You can add whatever you like to it nuts or dried fruit. I like is simple just oatmeal and nuts.

If you like granola you should try making your own.....you won't be sorry you did!

I hadn't intended to take a long bloggy break it just sort of happened.  I have plenty of projects that I could share was just lacking motivation I guess. 

But I am back and here are some pictures of what I have been working on in my gardens.

Angel Food Cake with amazing caramel topping!

This is family favorite! It is usually requested for every family birthday. It is so yummy but SO easy! 

So simple and so amazingly yummy!

I don't even have a written recipe anymore.  I can make it from memory after all these years.

You need:
1 container of cool whip
1 container caramel ice cream topping
1 pack of 6 heath bars or large bag of mini bars

Crush up the heath bars....I use a food processor.  Mix all the ingredients together.  I cut my angel food cake in 3 layers then top and eat!!! YUM YUM!

Pinterest Project-Tray for dining room table

Anyone else addicted to Pinterest?  Yeah.....me neither haha!

I saw a tray project on Pinterest that I knew would work well on my dining room table.  My Dad made it for me with scraps of wood he had on hand.

I forgot to take a before picture until I had started to paint in already! 

I can see decorating it for every season and holiday!  

I am linking up to the I Made It! Monday

How a leaky faucet leads to a mini bathroom remodel!

So last weekend we had a leaky faucet in one of our bathrooms!  Hubs tried to fix it, but it needed to be replaced.  So since he was going to do that I decided to sand and restain the dresser that we use as a vanity.  And my Dad generously made us a frame to go around the plain old mirror we had in there. 

The Dresser during and after......

The mirror before and after painting(I forgot to take a before the frame picture)

And the finished job!!!

Even though it took up our whole dang weekend.....it turned out great!
