Date Night Jar
Day 39: Explore with something new “It’s always better when we’re together.” -Jack Johnson Each stick has a different date idea ranging from new restaurants, to recording our next hit music video. haha! Soph came up with the great idea to color the back of each stick as we complete them to continually brighten up the jar!

Day 37: Decorate a cake or cookie. Spring colored Sixlette candy :)
Egg Dying Disaster
Day 36: Work with food dye. Let me just start by saying Easter egg dying was SO MUCH more fun when Mom was in charge of the egg prepping. I quite prefer my naive mentality now that I know the seemingly endless process you encounter BEFORE you can even think about turning those little white eggs any sort of color. By the time the eggs made it to the table, I’m pretty positive there were...

A note to those who embark...
Diet Coke & A Dream
Day 31: Use a new ingredient to bake I had to come to terms with the fact that there would inevitably be ‘failures’ along the way; Trial & Error, per say. In the past, I have successfully made eggless cakes using sprite (for white cakes) or diet coke (for dark cakes). Being without the necessary brownie ingredients, I thought I’d try my luck and adapt the trick....
The Never Ending Game of Catch Up
Alrighty, let’s get on top of this! Boy, oh boy. Did I learn quickly how easy it is to get off course! One missed day turns into four missed days… turns into… A MONTH BEHIND?? I’ll admit, the catch up process has been both stressful and anxiety ridden, but let’s be honest; Sometimes life gets in the way! And you know what? It’s totally fine! Though I have...
