Banana Crumb Muffins

Mr. B is getting back from a business trip to Brussels today and I thought it would be nice to have something home baked to greet him with. I had some overripe bananas that wouldn't last another day, so I knocked out some delicious banana crumb muffins. You can get the recipe HERE. I added a tablespoon of vanilla to the wet ingredients but other than that, I follow it as is. This is my favorite muffin recipe ever, so I had to share. You have to try it. It's really easy and so good!!

The goods. Those bananas were barely hanging on.

Updating a Vintage Chandelier

Next up on the adventures in Nursery Land, the chandelier! So far, this is my all-time favorite project. Every time I look at it, I'm filled with glees. Baby Girl needed some bling and Baby Girl got some!!!

I scoured the internet for a small, girly chandelier that would be perfect for a nursery and I definitely found some beauts out there but who wants to spend $200+ for nursery lighting? Well, you know me, time to get crafty. In my hunt, I came across Tole chandeliers and I was diggin' the style. I found a few on Etsy that worked and were under two hundo but still, my inner cheapskate cringed. So, I turned to good ol' Craigslist. Lo and behold, I found the EXACT chandelier I was eyeing on Etsy for... brace yourselves... $50! It's times like these when I feel like God is saying "Ok kiddo, you deserve this." The heavens parted, the angels sang and I joyously drove the 50 miles to make that baby mine!!!
