The things that make me happy are pretty simple. They are the things that normally make me grin so I pull out my phone and snap a picture. You want to see the pics I took on my phone this week?
I removed this rolling wire trash bin thing from inside that really didn’t help it just got in the way. I used baskets that I already had in the house and now I can see everything we have!
I covered a bottle of wine in chocolate for my (1st) mother in law. I’ll be honest when I was done with the dark chocolate it didn’t look so hot, but after I added the white it was great and tasted amazing! It was a hit. Ok I’ve had a few questions about this so here is the short version.
I Basically I criss- crossed ribbon under the bottle and tied it around the neck. Then I wrapped it in waxed paper and taped it on. Next I used a double boiler to melt chocolate chips with a little water to make it more spreadable. Used a spatula to smear it on. Let it cool and harden. Melted white chips and water in a pyrex measuring cup and then drizzled it all over! Pretty simple but it takes a little time.
I hope thats clear if not I will be making on next weekend so come back on the 7th for the tutorial with pictures. Maybe even a video.
Other than the fact that Cooper doesn’t always listen to me grrr, he is pretty darn cute. We gave a friend a ride to the body shop last night to get their car back. The window was up while driving but when we were parked he was adorable.
