Rubik's Cube Tissue Box Cover

I've got a secret...



If you are a fan of Big Bang Theory, I'm sure you have already noticed the awesome Rubik's Cube tissue box that Sheldon and Leonard have in their apartment. Well, I decided that we had to have one for our new 80's Geek Living Room!

Super Mario Coasters


Continuing with the 80's geek theme that we have going in our living room, I decided that we needed some 8-Bit Super Mario Coasters!

Orange Creamsicle Fudge


This awesome fudge tastes just like a creamsicle! The orange and white marbled color makes it great for a Halloween treat too. The original recipe said to put it in a 13 x 9" pan but I thought it came out a little thin so next time I will probably use the 9 x 9" pan that I usually put fudge in. Other than that, I love this recipe!

Dexter Party Part Three


Today is the day! The final installment of my little Dexter Party. It may doesn't even compare to the awesome Amy Lau Dexter Dining Room but I also didn't have a very big space or budget to work with. Most of this was put together using things that I had around the house! I have a few ideas that you could use to make it even better if you have the extra cash though and hopefully this post will be a starting point to inspire you to come up with even more party ideas.

Dexter Party Part One: Blood Splatter Cupcakes


I'm sure all of the Dexter fans out there are excited about the Season 7 premiere coming up in less than two weeks! Unfortunately we don't get Showtime so we only get to watch it if we buy in on dvd or wait for it to come on instant Netflix. As a result we haven't even seen seasons 5 and 6 yet. :( We love what we have seen so far though!

Loaded Baked Potato Soup


This loaded baked potato soup is really easy to throw together and is great on a chilly fall evening. You can make it without the toppings for a great basic potato soup too!

Ruby Red Slippers


I have glittered some chucks before - in green and black - but I have wanted a red pair for awhile now. Kind of a punk version of Dorothy from the Wizard of Oz. This year for my birthday Shelby surprised me with a pair and I was finally able to get started on my ruby red slippers! I mean chucks. :)

Baked Apples


Once September rolls around, I have to break out the apple recipes. It just isn't fall without them. First up were some baked apples on pancakes since that is my favorite thing to order from Cracker Barrel. It took three tries but I finally came up with a recipe that I really like! These would also be awesome on some vanilla ice cream or you can just eat them with a fork. YUM!

Nintendo Controller Coffee Table


We're rockin' it old school today! Those new gaming systems are nice with their crazy clear graphics but I enjoy the nostalgia from the old 8-bit games and I can never figure out all of those buttons on the new controllers anyway.

Salsa Corn Chowder


It is still suffocatingly hot and humid around here but crisp, cool weather is just around the corner. In preparation of those gorgeous fall days, I am sharing this delicious recipe that is sure to keep you warm. This corn chowder gets a new twist with salsa and spices. It is full of flavor without being too spicy.

Squeaky Clean

Last week I showed off my new Ducky Bathroom makeover and there was just one blank wall left to decorate. I thought about it for a while but inspiration evaded me so I asked for suggestions and my amazing readers friends totally came through for me! I used a combination of your ideas and I LOVE how it turned out. The room is complete now:

Link Party 75

Hello there! I hope you all had a great holiday weekend. Shelby got to come home from his two week business trip a couple of days early so my weekend turned out great. :) I know it's a day late but it is time for the link party! Here are a few of my favorites from last week:
