Helping Others......and selling Cupcakes to do it!

The older I get the more and more I realize how important it is to help others and I am very happy to say that my daughter Rylee is the one who encourages me to get involved.  Rylee is the type of child that will loose her mind when she see's litter on the ground.....we can not walk by without picking it up!  She is also very concerned when she sees commercials on tv talking about children in need.  I know she has it in her to change the world heck she might even rule the world one day!  The kid has passion she has spunk there is something really special about her and I am very proud to say she is my daughter. 

The reason why I wanted to talk about all of that is because my friend Gillian from Gigi Photography is hosting a Cupcake sale with her adorable daughters and all the proceeds will go to the The Cupcake Kids.  This foundation helps children in need in Africa.  I am so happy that Gillian opened my eyes to such a great cause!  This will be something that Rylee and I will do every year:)

Oh how I LOVE Anthropologie!

I love Anthropologie the only problem is I can never bring myself to buy anything because I would just feel way too guilty as the prices are a little high:(
Here are some things that I have been dreaming about....

So it is no secret that I love my Coffee and last week Gillian of Gigi Photography shared a great little recipe for home made creamer! 
Can I just say my hubby almost fell over when he had his Coffee that is now a staple in our fridge:)  I thought I would share this with you as well as it is super duper easy to make.
Pour the sweetened condensed milk into the jar........

Now add the 1 cup of milk....
Add about 1 tbsp of vanilla in there.....I think I added more....whatever floats your boat right?
Give that bad boy a shake....hold onto the lid.....go on and shake it some more.....
Now pour that sweet stuff into your coffee!
Add some Chocolate Biscotti on the side and enjoy!
