Hitch...

For reasons I can not figure my carrot bread was a disaster so I didn't have the heart to try to make it into carrot french toast. I also can't be expected to bake two batches of anything in a single weekend ~mainly because my sink doesn't hold that many dirty dishes. Here's the proof...

Inspired...

So everyday in my inbox is an e-mail from DailyCandy usually I glance and toss or I glance and file but today I was inspired...

This weekend I will be making this for Saturday Brunch~

CARROT CAKE FRENCH TOAST
Fresh baked carrot cake dipped in cinnamon vanilla egg batter and grilled to golden brown. Served with a side of syrup and our original cream cheese-pecan syrup.

Oh my gosh I can't believe I have never thought of this ~or seen this. I have seen cinnamon rolls sliced in half for french toast and I have a recipe for creme brulee french toast I have been meaning to try.

Today DailyCandy was touting the lovelies of Austin and the South Congress Cafe with this on there menu was recommended and since I can't get to Austin this weekend I will have to make it instead.

I will promise to try to take a photo and let you know how it goes~

an ear full...

Okay so anyone who knows me knows that I wear the same earrings every day. On occasion I might mix it up a bit but almost always these are what I have on...


Here's the thing though I like earrings and I am always looking for a great pair. So I found this store on etsy after I linked from a friend to a friend to a friend through blogs ~you have got to love where blogs can take you sometimes.

Here is the pair I got


~not quite what I ordered so she threw in an other pair for good measure...


These I love and I think they may be my new staple ~but I will have to try them out and see if the new me is more beatnik than than the old me.

October is here~

So I kind of Love the Halloween ~well I like to decorate for it & dress other people up for it. So I was really excited when October came around and it was time to change things up.


I love this bat Erin made it our freshman year ~and I stole.


I collect nick-knacks ~but only for halloween so that makes it okay ~well mostly only for halloween which makes it mostly okay.


I also did a little something to welcome all my favorite ghouls ~so come by and I promise I will give you a treat ~if you think diet coke is a treat...
