Fun fact, my first real job was at Baskin-Robbins when I was 15.  I have so many good memories; making fresh waffle cones, sampling new flavors, my carpel tunnel plus my crazy buff right arm ha ha.  So I have a special place in my heart for Baskin-Robbins.  Annnnd, I am a sucker for desserts, basically treats of any kind.  So naturally I was pretty excited  to team up with Baskin-Robbins to help promote their  warm cookie ice cream sandwich because, well, they taste as DELICIOUS as the look! Plus, the ability to build your own sandwich with a variety of cookies and toppings AND their 31 flavors is genius!  So when I love chocolate and my son doesn’t (I’m working on changing that), everyone can be happy.

Mothers Day is coming up FAST!!  And if you need a last min way to brighten your mom’s morning, this is it.  So first, I need to rant a little about breakfast in bed.  Does anyone LIKE breakfast in bed?? Ha ha, there is something so gross to me about eating food in bed.  Like eggs and syrup… I would rather eat that at a table then risk getting syrup on me or my clean sheets (ha ha or maybe I’m just a messy eater).  SO I have the perfect solution… breakfast in bed, but smoothie style.  I am 100% O.K. with drinking a smoothie in bed.  Less messy, am I right?

I have been meaning to give my office space a makeover for SOOOOOOO long.  This is the first place we have lived where I get my own space which was SO exciting.  Also I think my husband was thanking his lucky stars, because his life was being taken over by crafts and supplies.  But once we moved I got so sick from my pregnancy that the desire to do anything, let alone decorate, was gone.  But after a few months of morning sickness its finally done!!  It’s small and we are renting so I cant go crazy (although I WISH I could paint those beige walls so much I want to scream ha ha) but I love how everything turned out!  And if you can’t tell…I went crazy with color.  But if this is going to be my space for inspiration,  then it needed lots of color.
