happy homemaker.

this week is insanely busy and stressful. for whatever reason everything in my little north carolina world is happening at once! i’m co-hosting a baby shower for a friend, donating my dog treats to a bake sale that’s raising money to help a couple shelters down here, working hard on homework and preparing to change my sleep schedule when my marine goes back to day crew.

phew! i’m tired just thinking about it!
in order to relax i’ve started to make things. i’ve talked about the homemade vanilla coffee creamer and rosemary mint fabric softener so (because i’m so dang nice) i’m going to share the recipies with you!

homemade vanilla coffee creamer
ingredients: 1 can sweetened condensed milk, 1 1/4 cups milk, 3 tsp vanilla
directions: mix all ingredients in a lidded container.
(lasts up to two weeks in fridge)

rosemary mint fabric softener
ingredients: 6 cups water, 3 cups white vinegar, 2 cups suave rosemary mint conditioner directions: mix water, vinegar and conditioner in a one gallon container. (don’t shake, stir!)
(use same amount you would normally use in a wash cycle) (http://www.onegoodthingbyjillee.com/2012/02/rebeccas-rosemary-mint-fabric-softener.html#more)

now get off your butt and start making!

  1. I hope you enjoy the coffee creamer. Thanks for the shout-out.

    The fabric softener sounds great. I just made my own laundry detergent. It’s great 🙂

lately on instagram...
it is most certainly puppy love ❤ just be here with me. 
signed: the moon. the stars. your still-hot-cup-of-coffee. your daughter. your son. your spouse. your heart. the green grass. the wild flowers. the waters you long to swim in. the color yellow. the color blue. your favorite poem. your favorite blanket. the wind in your hair. the waves on the ocean. the mountain air. your dad. your mom. the rain. the ice-cream cone. the butter sizzling with garlic in the frying pan. the grocery clerk with the sad, kind eyes. postcards waiting to be sent. the city squirrel. the county squirrel. jupiter. the photo album. your grandma's rosary. your favorite song. ink and paper. your best friend. the money in your wallet. the fork in your hand. brushes and paint. downward facing dog. the color turquoise. the almost invisible shade of pink. god. the skyline. the earth beneath your feet. a hammock. the shade of a giant tree. this moment, right here, now. your bones. your belly laugh. your breath. your breath. your breath. (quote from pinterest) a short list of things i love: america, cocktails, red lips, my chalkboard, grilled food but most importantly long weekends spent with my loved ones. happy birthday america! thanks for giving us the day off to celebrate 🍻
