Baked Apples

Posted by on Dec 10, 2015 in Health & Food | 0 comments

Baking apples is a great way to get into the holiday mood, and it makes the entire house smell glorious. Not to mention its pretty easy, but kind of time-consuming if you are slow at peeling apples.

You will need:

1 bag of small red apples of 5 large red apples (I don’t know the exact kind. I just know I always use red, ya that’s how I roll)

1/2 orange juice

2 packets of cinnamon spice instant oatmeal (I liked the Trader Joe’s brand when I was living near one)

1/4 cup brown sugar


Last box left after we moved (tear).


Preheat oven to 350ยบ

Peel and core all apples. Cut into slices. Place apple slices in baker or pot that has a lid. Pour orange juice all over apples, then sprinkle the 2 packets of oatmeal all over apples. Lastly sprinkle brown sugar on top of the oatmeal. Place lid on top of baker or pot. Cook for 1 hour or until apples are soft.

I cook mine the Pampered Chef baker.

Ponchos & Tunics For Christmas

Posted by on Dec 9, 2015 in Fashion & Popular Products | 0 comments

Shakespeare once wrote, “My heart cannot express the love that is this tunic.” Just kidding I made that up. But come on people show me a person who doesn’t love a beautiful tunic or poncho, and I’ll show you an ugly pair of Christian Louboutins. Impossible, you say. To which I respond, my point exactly.

Is this not beautiful or what. This is a handmade poncho that comes from the lovely Free People.

This tunic from Shopbop has many reasons why it is glorious. To name a few…

1.You can tuck the front in and leave the back out for a more trendy look.

2.You can dress it up with black pants, or dress it down with a pair of jeans.


If I were to pin this tunic to my pinterest board it would read… Want. I love that this tunic from Express hits just below the elbow. If you were wondering it also comes in blue as well.

Posted by on Oct 30, 2015 in Life & Adventures | 2 comments

Tomorrow this little blog of mine turns 3 years old. Not to mention it will be Halloween; on a Saturday non-the-less. What are your plans? I’m going to make a few goodies like these peanut butter balls (I take out the chocolate chips, and coconut flakes, just because I don’t like them in there) and watch the Steven King movie Bag of Bones on Netflix. Thank you so much for reading TT, although I don’t blog as much as I have in the past I still enjoy it very much!

High Five It’s Friday

Posted by on Sep 4, 2015 in Fashion & Popular Products, Life & Adventures | 3 comments

What are you plans for this weekend? I’m hitting up Starbucks, and going to work on my “beloved” homework.

I have finished my first week of school and overall all it went very well (high five). My favorite part so far was last nigh; I had a guest lecture for my constriction graphics class and it was awesome! The guest speaker showed us blueprints up on a huge screen and explained what the job of a commercial construction manager entails. I was so pumped up afterwords. Lucky for me Chris got home from work and was able to greet me at the door. Not so lucky for him, he got to hear me talk about it for a good 30 minuets. Here are a few fun links form around the web. I hope you have a great weekend.


Just a great picture of fashion.


Kind of funny and cute but not sure it I would pay to have it done to a photo?


Sprinkles the Cat, made me laugh!
