Oreo and I worked together on a super fun project as part of their welcoming to Tumblr! They gave me creative freedom to invent a new way to eat Oreos, and I was elated to make smores indoors.
Whether you have agoraphobia or are trying to cope with a rained out camping trip, indoor camping can be a super fun activity!
Gather all of your house plants
chop up your empty paper towel rolls (a.k.a. bundle of wood)
drag your christmas lights out of storage
pitch your tent and grab some Oreos to make your own fun cookie camping creations!
I crave a lot of things when I try to cut down on others.
I’m postponing my inherent diabetes by cutting down on sugar, and now in turn, I keep craving sandwiches.
This is a self portrait of sandwiches on my mind. This one was a ham and cheese…
As previously mentioned, we recently rescued a puppy from the San Francisco Animal Care and Control center. At first, we talked about rescuing a fully grown dog since they are considerably more mellow but we ended up deciding against it. I wanted to be able to train a puppy and show him as much of the world that I could before he was too old to be afraid of any parts of it. So we ended up falling in love with Harvey who was approximately 3 months old according to the kennel. Then they said he was more likely about 5 months old, by the time we adopted him. By the time I got Harvey to the vet, a week later, he had grown so fast! The vet informed us that he was probably around 9 months old. Whatever his age, he’s grown out of his sniffing everything phase, and has even given himself a job!
Harvey seems to think that his job it to be a vacuum, now! It doesn’t pay well, but luckily, hes happy with just working for scraps. Floor scraps, table scraps, ever socks that fall from my pile of laundry that he seems to think are laundry scraps! This little thing wants to try everything! Heres a couple of more things that he would love to get a hold of:
Just thought I’d tell you something sweet!
One day while drifting through Whole Foods I came across a free sample booth that had a lady handing out what looked like tapioca pudding and going on about all the things you can do with chia seeds. It was reminiscent to Bubba Blue giving that never ending speech on shrimp, in Forest Gump. I couldn’t get her to fess up on how she made this delicious pudding I was trying, so I grabbed a bag of these seeds, headed home, and began experimenting on how to make it. I’ve tried it using all different kinds of milks, sweeteners, and extracts and I think I’ve finally made my favorite one. I’ve illustrated the recipe so that you can make it too!
It’s best to leave this mixture in the refrigerator for, like, 12 hours to get the best pudding consistency. Right before serving it, I like to top mine off with a little extra teaspoon of agave.
