Sweet Treats for Sweet People

Incase you haven’t heard, it’s almost Valentine’s Day. I decided to make little treats for my husbands co-workers and mine. I stuck with something very simple, “buttons,” which are Snaps pretzels with Kisses and M&M’s on top.

I ran out of the Hugs kisses, the milk and white chocolate striped, so I went with regular for the rest.

I didn’t push them down all the way because I liked the way it looked, plus they took up more space in the containers. I cooked them at 200 degrees for 5 and a half minuets. I sometimes did a little longer because the bottoms of the kisses were still hard.

I put about 12 in each little plastic cup from the dollar store. Then I found cute heart baggies and placed them in those. I downloaded an adorable Valentine tag from Yellow Bliss Road. Printed those on watercolor paper from Target and cut them out. I used some pink ribbon I had and that was it!

It’s a real treat being your friend! 

Thanks y’all!

Just because. Cake.



I love baking. It doesn’t always come out amazing but it’s the thought that counts, right? 

So, while waiting for the hubby to come home, I decided to make a cake. All I had was “lemon” flavored, which I do not recommend. The flavor is o.k and I didn’t want to go to Walmart this late, I made it work. 





I poured the batter into 4 little bowls and colored them with food coloring. That’s where I decided to “color.” 





I just followed the instructions on the box for temperature/time. My 5 year old would LOVE this. She loves baking and coloring. Anyways, I added vanilla frosting and then ta-da! 









It was fairly simple and the cleanup was super quick (:

Thanks y’all!

Blogging/bloggers amaze me. I believe humans who blog deserve an award simply because they write what WE want to read. Also the DIY and creativity embellished humans make the blogging world even more spectacular. 

I received A’s in English, you know, “got by.” But blogging isn’t about where you put your P’s and Q’s, it’s about the writer and the reader. The relationship the words create between the two, that’s what matters. 

I’d like to create that relationship with you, my reader(s) (trying to be humble.) 

So, I’m a DIYer, personal southern chef to my family, organization nut, fisherwoman, and gifting goddess. Hopefully, you will enjoy this as much as I do. 

Thanks y’all!
