So is this a door into another world or just against the fence in my backyard. The latter is more true of course! This gorgeous door was laying across the street in the garbage pile. I promptly ran over there and grabbed it. This has been my secret project! When I first saw it I wanted to make a coffee table from it. As time passed and it sat in my small cramped kitchen in the winter, I had no idea when I would get to begin this project. Well as time passed Kojo Designs designed a message center and I am totally stealing her idea! Look how fabulous hers is. By the way she is also where I got the idea for the table from!

As you can tell Baby J just needed to help his mother with this project. I love this boy so much!

Faux Red Lobster Biscuits - These were phenomenal. They tasted just like the real thing! My husband was very surprised by how close they really were.

 Baby J had a play date with his second girlfriend :) Just kidding I hope he never dates lol. I fear the day it tells me he has a crush. Did I mention he is just 9 months in this picture? Ugh too big too fast!!

OMG Brie and Bacon wrapped with puff pastry. I made this for our anniversary dinner. I didn't think Hubby would be into it but he actually enjoyed it. I can not wait to make this again, it was heavenly to say the least. Recipe can be found here.

I will admit I have a food network addiction. I don't actually watch it all day everyday but I probably could with a few exceptions of some chefs. I am not however a fan of most challenge shows because it is annoying to watch all the build up of what will happen next. For some reason though I started watching The Worst Cooks in America and now I 'm hooked!! Anne Burrell, whom I'm not much of a fan of, is one team captain, The Red Team and Chef Robert Irvine is the Blue Team captain. Chef Anne had her contestants make the above side dish and I just had to have it. It was delish! This was also part of our anniversary dinner.

We live in Houston, TX and we do not have 4 seasons a year. I know you may read that baffled but it's true. We simply don't. On Feb. 10, 2011 they SHUT DOWN Houston. Completely shut it down because they feared snow was coming. You would think people who can be without electricity for more than two weeks due to a devastating hurricane could handle snow. Ha, think again! It ended up not snowing but the city was iced over. They shut down all major highways, no one was supposed to go to work unless it was necessary. I woke up the morning of all this craziness to find no snow, but only ice. This is our dog bowl for water it is completely frozen solid. The folks up north must be laughing at us. I know I am.

As you can see it's been going great! I am about to start a sewing project.. An Apron. How hard can that be? Well we'll see!
Have a great and happy weekend! Most of all be safe :)
