DIY Coffee Sugar Scrub- an easy gift for teachers, friends, or family! Less than $2.15 each

I’m one of those people who doesn’t like to drink coffee, but loves the smell of it.  My husband recently started drinking it in the mornings and since then I’ve been stealing whiffs from the canister as I’m trying to wake up.   It just smells so rich!  

No one likes coffee more than my Dad though.  He drinks it morning, noon, and night- especially with my Mom’s sweet treats.  I remember always wanting to drink it as a kid to be like Dad.  My parents let my sister and I try it once; my sister loved it, but my cup ended up being about 99% milk. :) Continue reading

Cinnamon Toast

Cinnamon Toast- so good with rice or oatmeal!

This recipe is one of those that’s so easy to make it’s almost a non-recipe.  I debated if it was even worth posting because I figured everyone knows about cinnamon toast, but here it is just in case you don’t.  Cinnamon toast is so easy to prepare and doesn’t take much more time than regular toast does, but it always felt like a treat when my Mom would make it for us.  Continue reading

Stitch Fix Friday: Fix #8


Have you heard of Stitch Fix?  It’s basically like having your own personal stylist once a month (or as often as you like).  They send you a box of five items with a style card on how to wear each piece.  Keep what you want, send back what you don’t (in a pre-paid envelope)- all with no commitment to buy.  You pay a $20 styling fee that goes toward anything you decide to keep, and if you keep everything you get a 25% discount.

So far my fixes have been:
Stitch Fix #1 – sent it all back
Stitch Fix #2 – sent it all back
Stitch Fix #3 – kept a brown tote
Stitch Fix #4 – kept a black dress
Stitch Fix #5 – read more here
Stitch Fix #6 – kept everything
Stitch Fix #7 – kept a pair of jeans

I was anxious to receive this fix after my last one, and I’m happy to report it was much improved.  Continue reading
