New do....

This past week I decided I wanted to do something new with my hair. I'd been rocking the same hairstyle since I was nine and it needed to change. So Friday after work I went and had this done.

Reminder this is what it looked like.

I love it so much more now. It's shorter but I can still pull it back and I like the new part.

Well hope everyone had a great weekend!!

Pie Crust & Pecan Pie....

My first attempt at making pie crust crashed and burned. It was horrible! So after chucking the dried out dough in the trash I called my mother and cried to her and asked what in the world I did wrong. Okay maybe I didn't cry. In the end really not sure what I did wrong but mom said when Cray and I came up on the July 4th weekend she and I would make pies together.

Making them with her was a total success!! Maybe my first attempt failed because I didn't have a pastry cutter or maybe I didn't add enough Crisco or maybe too much flour. Who knows!

Last night I tried making the crust on my own. S-U-C-C-E-S-S again!!! I was so very proud of myself. Cray had to endure me jumping up and down clapping my hands like a silly school girl.

Next I made a pecan pie. I found the recipe on The Pioneer Woman blog. It looks oh so good and I can't wait to try a piece tonight.

Blackberry Cobbler...

Last night I made a very yummy blackberry cobbler. I found the recipe over at The Pioneer Woman. I've never read her blog until this week and I think she is amazing! She tells such great stories and has made some very wonderful dishes. I can't wait to try more!!

More Random Flowers

So we have some more random flowers around our house. This one stumps me because we have lived in the house for two years, have never ever planted anything and these decided to come out this year. On top of that last year there was this flower bush looking thing and it died so Cray pulled it up from this spot. Lovely!
