Kenneth and I finally walked the labyrinth at the Lane Avenue Gardens of Chadwick Arboretum! It was a beautiful evening!

Green Tutorial: Wedding Terrarium

Remember when I went to Galentine's Night at Whole Foods and learned how to make a terrarium? It was so much fun! Every glass jar I encounter has a new purpose - it could be made into an awesome terrarium!

I made this terrarium for my friends, Brittany and Matt, last month as a wedding present from Kenneth and me. The best part of the terrarium is the teeny tiny bride and groom! They're so little! I bought the figurine from HobbyLinc. HobbyLinc sells a ton of different figurines of people and animals - so many possibilities!

Pumpkin Feast in April! - Gluten-Free Oatmeal Cookie Pumpkin Pie + Recipe

Pumpkin pie in April? Why, yes please! I have three reasons for why this is an awesome idea:
  1. It snowed yesterday - which made me want to go back into hibernation and eat lots and lots of pie. 
  2. Pumpkin. I love pumpkin and if I could find canned pumpkin year round I'd just have 12 months of Pumpkin Feast every year. 
  3. I'm trying to clean out our cupboard and I have one last can of pumpkin puree and I didn't want to hoard it any longer.

A Clowder of Cats

Our three lovely ladies, Olivia, Emma and Amelia, decided to make mischief when I got home this afternoon. One of them (or possible all three, they've been known to collaborate when getting food is their goal) knocked over the food bag and spilled tiny kitty kibbles on the laundry room floor. I thought it would be fun to let them 'go fishing' and grab at the food pieces from under the laundry room door. I also thought it'd be funny if I filmed it.

The Chin Scratch

Spring Flowers + Cute Kitties

Yesterday my parents, Kenneth and I visited my sister, Brittney, and her boyfriend, Cam, in Cincinnati. We had supper at Cactus Pear (they have delicious shrimp tacos and blood orange margaritas) and got a tour of Britt and Cam's apartment.

Rosemary Plant + Dark Chocolate Ice Cream

Whole Foods and Jeni's Splendid Ice Creams have teamed up for a program called Plants for Pints. If you buy a pint of Jeni's ice cream at Whole Foods or make a donation to Green Columbus at the register, you can take home an herb planted in a repurposed Jeni's pint.

Gluten-Free Chocolate for Breakfast Smoothie + Recipe

I see no problem with having chocolate, or dessert for that matter, for breakfast, especially if it's something like a muffin or sweet bread. I don't have dessert for breakfast every day, but I usually have a little bit of chocolate with my morning coffee. This smoothie is a healthy way to indulge in delicious chocolate, even if you don't eat dessert items first thing in the morning. It even has fruit in it!

Emma likes to stay up on the latest trends, so we added an ombre filter to her photo tonight. Isn't she gorgeous?
