My Favorite Places To Buy Faux Plants

Hello!  I know the trendy thing right now is to have a green thumb, but that is just not happening in my life...  I killed almost every plant in my house by the time Mack was 6 months old.  As much as I tried to have a system to water my plants, I just couldn't get it done.  I was reading a post from one of my {favorite bloggers} and she wrote about needing to grow plants now that she doesn't have any babies.  So I am going to take that as long as I have babies; I won't grow plants... haha.  Now I still love pops of green from plants so these are some of the best places I get my faux plants.

Numero Uno: Ikea




Tall Tan Man makes fun of me all the time because of the number of {these plants} I have.  They are always my go to item when I'm decorating, faux real!  

Numero Dos:  Hobby Lobby






I know this is going to sound silly but our bedroom dresser decor urked for well over a year {you can see some before pictures here}!  So last weekend I decided to go to both Marshall's and Hobby Lobby to get some things to spruce it up.  I love the draping greenery I found at Hobby Lobby.  It kind of reminds me of my hair every other day ;).

Numero Tres: Target



Any other end of the aisle lovers out there??  I pretty much stalk the clearance sections of Target, and never buy anything full price.  They currently have this awesome {fiddle leaf fig} that I am crushing on.  

I know someday I'll have my brain back {I hope} and will have some living plants again... haha. Mack and I are headed to Texas tomorrow.  Bring on all the fajitas, chips, and margs!

St. Paddy's Day Oreos


I can pretty much use any excuse to bake annnnd order take out.  I'm not a big celebrator of St. Paddy's day.  I'm am more of "my underwear are green" kind of person{sorry...tmi}.  :) Yesterday I had the baking itch and not much time so this "recipe" was perfect!


St. Paddy's Day Oreos

Ingredients:

Golden Oreos
Green Candy Melt
White Chocolate 
Sprinkles

Directions:

1.  Melt the green candy melts according to the directions and lay out a piece of parchment paper.

2.  Dip the Oreos in the candy melt and lay them on the parchment paper.  


3.  Melt the white chocolate and place in a baggie.  Cut a small corner of the baggie and decorate your cookies.



4.  Add sprinkles if you feel like it!  I refrigerated my cookies for an hour so the white chocolate would stiffen up faster.  Enjoy!


Mack is definitely not old enough to help but someday I think this would be a great kid friendly recipe!

  
Pretty cute I think!


Last year Tall Tan Man and I got to see a lot of Ireland.  If you ever get a chance to go, you should!  Such a beautiful county! 

Happy {almost} St. Paddy's Day!!!
