Happenings Around Our Way

Hey guys!  I realized that I haven't really posted much on the house happenings around here in a bit.  So here goes:

To start off, I finally purchased a dslr, and have been having so much fun learning all of the functions on it!  Now I may become a "professional blogger" because of the better quality images (after this post)!  If you follow me on twitter you may have seen the tweets about it.

Next, I went on a slight shopping spree at Home Goods.  I haven't shopped there that much since I got another car last August, so a week after we got our tax refund I high tailed straight to Home Goods.  As I stated last month, I have been on a cooking kick.  This trip wasn't so much about home decor (well, just a couple of things), but more so about upgrading cookware and the like (we had rusty baking sheets, sub-par pasta forks, and a pan with a missing handle to name a few).  I also was planning to cook all of the meals that were on The Everygirl for the week, and to be enthused about it I knew I needed to upgrade.  (Side note...if you haven't checked out The Everygirl yet, go there as soon as you finish reading and commenting on this post!)

Here's a photo of everything that I purchased:

  • A set of knives
  • A high quality pan
  • A durable baking sheet
  • A pasta holder
  • A glass gold-dipped vase
  • A small metallic bowl (decor)
  • Pasta fork
  • Tongs
  • Set of mixing bowls
  • Decorative cup (decor)
  • Salt shaker and pepper grinder set (not shown)

This is where some of these items now reside and/or closeups of them (taken with the new cam!):

(placed the shakers on top of candle holders that I already had)

Here are a few photos of my recent culinary masterpieces :-D
