She Loves Me, She Loves Me Not…

I’ve decided to link up with Michaela again this week with some of my favorite things of the moment and some things I’m not feeling so much.  Let’s start with favorites…

I made a big batch of white chocolate cookie dough {using this recipe} Monday night when my in-laws were coming over and made individual deep dish cookies.  Follow the regular recipe directions, then bake at 375 for about 15 minutes.  Add a scoop of ice cream and a drizzle of hot fudge and you’re in for it.  Heaven in a ramekin.

I guess I did this a little backwards {but those cookies were too good not to start with}, but for dinner we grilled pork tenderloins using this marinade.  Delish.

Keeping with the food theme, one of my first projects when I get out of school {only 1 more day!} is to organize our pantry.  I have a good start with some cute little baskets I scored at garage sales last weekend, but there is plenty more to do.  This pantry is a perfect inspiration for what I’m thinking.

In home decor land, I recently pinned this insanely gorgeous, cozy, calm, inviting bedroom. Love love love.

Ok and a few things I’m not loving…

School work.  I’m a teacher so that sounds pretty bad probably.  Let me explain myself.  College is awesome.  Four of the best years of my life.  They may or may not have looked something like the great John Belushi’s college days…

When I graduated 4 years ago, I got a great job and went back to school and got my Master’s part time while teaching.  When I graduated last summer, I swore I would never take another class again.  Wrong.  Womp womp.  Here I am again taking a couple classes to be able to teach gifted and talented students next year, which I am very excited about.  However, school work, I’m not excited about.

Neon.  Some of you may hate me for this one, but I just can’t jump on the neon train.  I can’t get over the 80s vibe of it. Sorry!

Alright that’s all I’ve got for ya.  Head over to Michaela’s and see what other great things you need to know about!


  1. I ADORE that pantry. Loving your loves! Thanks for linking up! :) xo
