Easiest breakfast EVER!!

I have had a VERY busy past few months!! Which has left me neglecting my blog in a severe way. {But I promise the upcoming posts will show you what I have been up to & I hope you will feel its worth the wait}
But back to the easiest breakfast ever....right? Well as I was saying my life has been full of changes & projects & some stress so I always welcome easy stuff to make life easier {& if I come out looking like a rock star.... well thats just a bonus}
So I peruse Pinterest daily {yes im an addict..... dont judge} & for those who do the same, you pin away filing for the day you KNOW you will need it.
Well last week all that pinning paid off.  Every other month at my day job we have a breakfast meeting.  As a team building process we are assigned a team to cook for this meeting & it was my teams turn to cook. This is not an easy for 25 people earlier in the morning than you care to be awake & at I turned to a pinterest recipe that I have wanted to try & with no trial run we attempted the Ham & Egg cups & kept our fingers crossed that we wouldnt be the 1st team to offer no breakfast at all.
Well suffice to say these suckers were so easy to make {& cute to boot} that we all sat & drank a cup of coffee while most other teams are usually slaving away up until meeting time. We were given high praise & I knew if I didnt make these at home for the hubster tp try....I was going to be in T-R-O-U-B-L-E!!
Drum roll please................
No trouble here & I didnt spend 1/2 of my Sunday morning in the kitchen!

Little pretties for little girls

The project I am about to share with you was such a fun project to work on that I knew I just had to post about it.....
I mean how could I not . . . I live in a house with a ALL men~
Testosterone Central
So yeah. . . .this was a give in!
When I was looking for a really girly, cutsie project to make for a very awesome little girl that I just so happen to be related to. . . . {Hi Lucy!!}
I knew the minute I saw the headband holder that I was going to make one of those.....
I LOVED the idea of transforming some plain ol' object that was bound to end up in the trash into 
something special!
and really what good is a headband holder without headbands..... so off I went on this super girly adventure in frills & baubles
and YES I enjoyed every second of it & could have sat there for days just wielding my glue gun this way & that to come up with one of a kind treasures for Lil Miss Lucy ~

I think one of the things I loved about making these for her was that I used old costume jewelry that my Grandmother had given me to adorn her headbands.
I managed to turn a headband into a family heirloom . . . . 
Now Lucy can wear her Great Grandmothers jewelry & bring new life to it.
Pretty special if you ask me.
I know I am a pretty sappy gal but I mean...
c'mon just look at that green gingham with grandmas old jewel piece on it. . . I know right????

Then of course you have the headbands that you can use all those baubles you save because they were just too awesome to get rid of.....a metal rose?? yeah, totally cool!

Oh pink frilly perfection... How I wish I wasn't pushing 40 so I could wear you on my head!!! 
ahhhhh to be 5 again!
But I must say... I would probably wear the pink elephant button headband~
I just love that button AND that I was able to find the perfect home for that 1 little button!
not to mention those rhinestones... they were my Great Aunt Mary's and I know she would be thrilled to see a little girl enjoying her sparklies!
All of those fun & eclectic headband bring me to the headband holder. . . 
the start to the whole project. . . . 
my wonderful unique idea for a gift!
Now don't let this beauty fool you. . . 
It make look like this really awesome art piece to display the upper crust of girly headbands...
but I am here to confess that she is just for show....
her days as the throne of headbands was fore -shadowed by the fact that she is just too skinny to be of any use to the regal headbands. . . . 
YUP you got it . . this girl never even thought that the dang can wasn't fat enough to get the job done!
{hmmm too bad my clothes don't slide off me like those headbands slid down that can}
BUT at least the holder was pretty & at least she can put barrettes in it. . . 
or hey .... maybe it will be the prettiest crayon holder any girl has ever there's a thought.

But in the end I think Lucy loved her headbands & I think she liked looking at the skinny - minnie holder despite its flaws.
So I guess there will be a lot of oatmeal being eaten around here so I can make another holder. . . Blah
maybe some cookies are in order....yeah cookies!

Those cute lil' chick deviled eggs

OK..OK... so you know you have all seen those cute lil' chick deviled eggs on pinterest.  I thought they were so cute that I would give them a try.  I mean how hard could it be right?? 
Deviled eggs...easy {& mine taste pretty good too}
cute lil' chick faces... again easy right?? 
How hard can it be to add some bell pepper & olives right???
Here is when they looked really promising & I had really high hopes of making picture perfect 
little chick-a-dee eggs
You know what I mean...
HGTV worthy
{ha...yeah I am day dreaming}

moving on~
here is the finished product.....

A choir of dumb & dumber chicks that look as if they are Humpty Dumpty's hatched offspring!!
 Here.. lets add a bowl of olives to distract from the cross eyed lil' chicks
er-hem.....did that help??
Oh wait maybe that lil' guy on the bottom right.... he looks promising...
maybe we can eat him last! ha~ha 
here is a closer view.... 
 They look more like bratty lil' chicks sticking their tongues out rather than lil' chicks with beaks of perfection that I was hoping for.
Oh Well... I gave it the good ol' pinterest try &
While their faces didn't really make anyone want to say AWWW how adorable.....
Maybe they are just cute in their own way  {like each of us} 
either way...they were definitely cute enough to eat!

Hope everyone had a wonderful Easter full of family, friends & good food!

Happy Creating~
