Today I wanted to share with you our simple “Back to School” Breakfast that I whipped up last school year for my daughter and was featured at Everyday Party Magazine. With a new baby and the whole school thing being new to me, I had no idea what’s to expected when my daughter started preschool.
This was a simple breakfast that I set up for my daughter's first day of school. This was her official first day of preschool and I wanted to do something special for her. Of course sometimes we remember things or wanting to do something special for our kids or a significant other at the last minute.
It was the evening before her first day of preschool. I knew that she would be excited and nervous at the same time so I decided that I wanted to make her morning extra special. After searching Pinterest for ideas I realized that I would have to rely on items that I have already and free printables.
I knew that I will not have time to make warm breakfast in the morning so I decided to cook chocolate muffins the night before. In the morning I set the muffins on a cake stand on top of two books to elevate the stand holding the muffins. I placed her favorite yogurt in a whisky glass (classy, I know) and her chocolate milk in a clear bottle for a better visual. The cupcake toppers are part of a pack of free "Back to School" printables I found of Pinterest. The two prints "Back to School" and " You are Braver than you Believe..." I created and printed the night before. As a place mat I used Michael's scrapbooking paper, left over from a different project.
In all fairness to set up this special breakfast cost me nothing, but the excitement seen on my daughter's face that morning was priceless.

I admit, I am a wood floor kind of gal! I love the warmth and the feel of wood on my feet. While I was browsing Pinterest a couple of weeks ago I came upon a photo of beautiful space with brick flooring. We usually associate brick flooring with outdoor spaces but those photos will show us that if done right brick flooring fits right in inside as well.
What do you think?
I am actually starting to really warm up to the idea of brick flooring.

It is not a secret I love coastal design! I also love the beach cottage coastal design! My dream is to visit Cape Cod, Nantucket, and Martha’s Vineyards, find a cute little cottage to rent for a week and just explore the area.
One of my favorite things in the beach cottage design is the planked walls! It just gives the room such a character! It provides another design element to the room without being overpowering. Plank walls cover those naked walls and make them part of the room.
Now the good old boring builder’s house can become the perfect home. With so many great tutorials online a wood blank wall is just a weekend away. I know if I had the chance I would do it, what about you?
And how about a wood plank ceiling? Isn’t this room gorgeous?
