What a tease in this weather! It's snowing sideways out there right now and feels so cold out and last week all the snow melted and it was almost 60 degrees. Uh can't wait for spring weather to get here, puts me in a great mood and gives me motivation to do a lot things. I want to start running again, gotta get back in shape ;) lol. That means a few less oreo cake balls for me! haha. Alrighty, well gotta get painting! We are redoing our living room, i'm so excited for it to get done!!

Here's a couple pics of what i'm hoping our living room will turn out like::

That's what i'm hoping for anyways =)

A simple small project

It's a small cabinet above our washer in the laundry room, that I just recently decided to redo. I think it looks so much better and lightens the room even more now! I still have to find a couple cool knobs for the doors but here it is::                                                      Before
                                                                Much better I think!
I think i'm going to put some greenery up on top and decorate it up!

Chocolate Oreo Cake Balls! YUM

I found the recipe online for these oreo cake balls and they are really good! & super easy to make!

You will need:
  • 1 box of oreo cookies (get the real thing, fake oreos are just not the same)
  • 1 package of cream cheese
  • 1 bag of white chocolate chips
  • Vegetable oil (optional)
  • Sanding sugar / sprinkles (optional)

    1. In a food processor, crush the entire package of oreos until they are finely ground.
    2. Using a mixer, mix ground oreos and the block of cream cheese. I found it easier to use my hands after mixing a little bit.
    3. Form into balls and let cool in the freezer or outside for about 20 minutes.  After they have cooled for a bit, put your white chocolate chips in a microwave safe bowl or mug.  I used a smidge of vegetable oil to help keep the consistancy nice and smooth and keep the chocolate from drying out, but it is optional.  Microwave on 50% power for about 15-30 seconds at a time, stiring frequently.  It is easy to overcook the chocolate to be careful!
    4. Using a fork, dip each oreo ball into the white chocolate and tap off excess chocolate.  Place on foil or wax paper.
    5. If you like, you can sprinkle sanding sugar or sprinkles on the oreo balls before the chocolate sets.
    6. Let the chocolate set and Enjoy!!
