You Capture: Happy

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.

  1. now that’s a very organized under the sink cupboard. I am even more ashamed of mine now. As if that were possible…. starting my to-do list now 😉

  2. I love organized cupboards!! 😀

    I’ve never heard of covering wine bottles with chocolate!! Do you pop it off and eat it, then? Sounds like it would *totally* be up my mom’s alley! :giggle:

  3. Wow, can you come over and help me organize my sink cupboards too? We just throw things into bins underneath the sink and it drives me crazy when I actually have to go and search for something. I know I should organize it better but it’s a lot harder when I have a husband you just tosses things in. *sigh*

    That chocolate covered wine bottle is an interesting idea. I’ve never even heard of such a thing. I’m curious about it now 🙂

    And cooper is such a cutie!
