2 C. Sugar
1/2 stick butter
1/2 C. Milk
3 T. Cocoa
Cook the above items until they melt together and come to a boil.
1/2 C. Peanut Butter
3 C. Oatmeal
1 t. Vanilla
Stir until well blended and remove from heat. Place spoon-sized drops on wax paper and let harden.
We also finished painting our guest bedroom and it came out great! Here are the before and after pics. Please note the blue is not as bright as it looks in the picture- it's actually more of a light blue/grey color.

Yes, this is our little pride and joy Cooper, who this morning was more interested in running across the street to see our neighbors than doing his business in the front yard. This is the little puffball that sent me running after him yelling "Cooper! Stop! Now!!" so that I could, ever so gracefully, retrieve him from the two nice male neighbors who had scooped him up. I'm sure those men found my distress (and lack of appropriate clothing) very amusing.
...Oh well...I guess that's one way to meet the neighbors...

Matt and I were extremely blessed when we got married as we already had a house waiting for us. It is actually the house that Matt grew up in and had been living in for about 2 years. His parents decided to move about an hour north which therefore left a great, and available, house for two very excited newlyweds!
For the past year we have slowly been working on it to make it "our own." As I quickly learned, being a homeowner is a very exciting and a very daunting task. Being the extreme type-A that I am, I have a hard time accepting that it's never going to be completely "done" the way we'd like it to be, but I'm trying to be more patient so I don't drive poor Matt bananas with all of my house To Do lists!
Below is the list of things we're looking to finish before year-end, so if you can't reach us on the weekends, this is why:)
- Replace kitchen countertops and backsplash
- Paint guest bedroom
- Paint front door red and outside shutters black
- Find and hang window treatments for guest bedroom, master bedroom, and dining room
- Paint misc. trim and to-be-installed crown molding

Even though we didn't get to dress up (I Love to dress up!), we had a great Halloween and it was the perfect way to ring in the fall season.
While I'm still very new to this whole "blogging" phenomenon, I'll try my best to write and post pictures as much as I can, so check back often!
