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


Golden Oreos
Green Candy Melt
White Chocolate 


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!!!
