Sweet Corn Cake

Sunday, July 20, 2014


One of our favorite items when going out to eat at Mexican Restaurants (and Cheesecake Factory) are sweet corn cakes. Carl absolutely loves this decadent side dish. I have been trying for a few years to find a recipe to recreate it at home and I finally found one that works with adjustments from Allrecipes.com. I am amazed at how close the flavor and texture is to our nearby Mexican Restaurants (especially Don Pablo's). 

20 Inspirational Playroom Ideas

Friday, July 18, 2014

We are really blessed in our house to have the space for a playroom. It’s a first floor master bedroom with a bathroom and small walk-in closet. Since we wanted to be on the same floor as Carl, we opted to stay upstairs. The only problem with our playroom is it is completely bare (except for the billions tons of toys). I’ve got nothing on the walls and none of the furniture matches. Since I was bed rested half-way through my pregnancy, I told Kris I wanted to hold off on decorating the playroom until I could help. Of course, here we are 19 months later, and nothing has changed (oops!)

So now I have started the fun of looking up playroom ideas. I am in constant awe of the creativity of my fellow bloggers. They have come up with the greatest ideas that I am not even sure I am skilled enough to recreate (thankfully my parents are though, just kidding Mom :)).

So today I am sharing with you 20 playroom ideas that have inspired me. The best part is, these ideas can be used in kid’s rooms and classrooms, too!
