Pretty sweet

Hello my lovelies I hope you're all having a lovely week :) I know I am! just look at some of the yummies I've indulged in this week! Not to mention a tiny bit of baking (which i've just finished!) to leave behind as a thank you to Mr S's brother who is house and dog sitting for us this weekend :) Ooooh i do love playing with the retro camera app on my phone! Yesterday was me and the Mr's 6th anniversary and as a treat I booked us a weekend away at the Felbrigg Lodge courtesey of a voucher on livingsocial :) we get a 2 night stay with afternoon tea on arrival, a 4course meal each night, breakfast both days, a bottle of champagne and a chocolate hamper in the room, full use of hot tub and pool and a back neck and shoulder massage each :) (look at some of the lodges, they're gorgeous!) I've been looking forward to it for months and after weeks and weeks of stress and not seeing each other much due to work it's a much needed break for us to be together and enjoy ourselves :) Of course yesterday we had a good time as we just had a lazy day, feasting on takeaway and opening our prezzies :) Mr S brought me a super cute panda keyring, a pyro panda t-shirt (which is hilarious) a mini pink bucket of sweets and some undies :P I went for a bit of a theme for his presents as he has a bit of a thing about batman at the minute, so I brought him a batman t-shirt, a genuine adam west autographed picture of adam west's batman and had them delivered to him by bat dog :) Millie was hilarious in this costume, although we didn't keep it on her for long, mostly by her choice :P it was a total suprise for Mr S, especially as I left him in bed and had Millie dive on him as his wakeup call :) I shall have to take some pics of our gifts to each other after we get back from felbrigg :) I just wanted to show you all the lovely wall I have been working on for the past few months, collecting pretty frames and such :) a couple still need filling, and one already contains Mr S's batman gift from me :D Well that's about it from me for today :) I need to make sure we're all packed for tomorrow! Nananananananana batbye!! xxx Ness xxx

still pretty grey

Well the weather hasn't improved in the last few days at all. Every time I've walked Millie after work it's ended up raining within 20 minutes, not that she seemed to make! After seeing Ruby Red's delicious peanut butter pretzel bites I decided to make my own! Sadly me, Mr S and my friends scoffed them all before I thought to take any pictures! So the image above is courtesey of Two Tiny Kitchens, where you can also find the recipe :) To be honest I was pretty lazy with the recipe, I just wanted to make these as quickly as possible so I just made a note of what the ingreddients were and made up the quantities as I went until the mix seemed right, and they are so easy that it all went very well :) I also made these little pink oreo bites :) they were a piece of cake to make! I simply bashed up a packet of oreo's until they were fine crumbs and mixed in a few tablespoons of cream cheese frosting until I was able to pick up some of the mixture and roll it into a ball, not too sticky and not too crumbly! Sadly I can't be exact with measurements as I made these to use up the remaining frosting from my guiness cake :) After I'd rolled up all of the mixture into little balls I popped them in the fridge for half an hour. After they were a little firmer I melted some candy melt and popped one oreo ball in at a time and covered before removing and placing on a baking sheet. After I'd covered 4 I'd add the sprinkles before they set too much and then carried on going until I'd covered all of them :) Finally I set the bites back in the fridge to set before munching down, YUM! :) I brought some super awsome nail transfers from B&M the other day and was incredibly pleased with the result :) I'm bloody AWFUL at nail I should know really :P so the fact that these can cover your entire nail within a few seconds and are easy to apply I became an instant convert. I can't stop looking at how cool they look and at £1.99 for 40 transfers, enough to do all of your nails twice (or your fingers and toes!) they are a real bargain! I picked up some pretty flowers at Tesco to bring the smell of spring indoors and to help distract from the miserable weather, I absolutely adore the smell of hyacinths! I also found some lovely table inspiration for the wedding at a local wedding fayre :) I love the littlebucket centrepiece and the beautiful fabrics! Sadly this was about all I got to see as I am working 9 days in a row at the moment and was only allowed half an hour to visit the fayre, the fact it was a 10 minute drive away didn't leave me with much browsing time! I hope you're all having a fabulous week :) Goodnight from Millie and Me! xxx Ness xxx
