Breakfast Coffee Drink at Home {not Starbucks!}


Here is a way to achieve two goals: save money and be healthier {sorta}.

One thing all the diets agree on is that you have to eat breakfast.  Well how many of us don't because we have little hands getting into everything and little feet that require corralling?  Actually "eating" breakfast is something I have never been good at.  So...

What I do is mix Slimfast Protein Powder with 1 cup of milk as directed {except I use 2% not non-fat} shake it up, and then fill the rest of the bottle up with coffee.  Wallah!  You have a breakfast coffee drink that is healthier than any coffee drink from a store, and it has protein in it too.  What a win-win.  There are several different breakfast drink mixes out there, like Caranation Breakfast and others in the health food aisle.

You can also just do one or two packets of hot chocolate mix with milk if you are going to actually eat breakfast.  I do this on Saturdays when Mr. SD is fixing breakfast for me and the kiddos.  I love his breakfasts!

While blog hopping recently, I came across this fantastic tip listed on Be Our Best.  Jill has compiled her Top 10 Blogging Tips in one place to help others out there in blogland.  Most of them I had heard of before.  But she had one on her list that I have only seen a couple times in practice, and have not heard a how-to do it before.Number 6: Add a clickable signature to your comments.If you add the following text to the bottom of the comments you leave for other bloggers, whatever text you insert for “Your Text Here” will be clickable.  You have to switch out “{“ and “}” with “<” and “>” then it will work.  Remember to also change the “Your Blog Address” part, LOL! {a href= }YOUR TEXT HERE {/a}Bonus Tip ~ I use Notepad to store all the html codes I use on a regular basis {the direct link code for my signature image, color codes, etc.}.  I added the above code to my Notepad page, edited it with my information, and saved it.  Now all I have to do …

Quick Kitchen Curtain Tutorial

How comfortable with sewing are you?  Would you like to a quick and easy project that you can do yourself to create a window valance/ruffle out of any fabric you find?  Here you go!  There are only three lines of stitching in this project.  Very little measuring, and gorgeous results.

This project actually started almost two years ago, when I painted our current kitchen a pale ice blue we had left over from painting a bedroom.  To try something different, I painted the ceiling of the kitchen a deep, high-gloss navy.  You can see just a little bit of the ceiling in the finished curtain picture below.  As much as I adore the contrast in the paint colors, trying to find a ready made curtain for the kitchen has proven impossible.  Lots of kitchen curtains are to frilly, not the right color, too white, so on and so forth.  Did I mention too expensive?
