Under Construction

I have officially been inspired by my sister in-laws *new blog to give mine a little makeover. 1.) So it is easier to get around 2.) So it is more appealing to new followers.
Inbetween work, housework & my online class I will be working on re-vamping "Heavenly Day" so it is more heavenly. :)

♥ Hang in there. Erica

These are a few of my Favorite things...
I adore my Sperry Top Sider Rain Boots I got for Christmas from my in-laws... I wear them almost everyday, rain or snow. They even keep my feet warm with the felt boot liner. :)

These are my Millie Meyer Pearls - they were my husbands late grandmas costume pearls. & I love them. Especially the little details of the colored pearls, their little flowers with leaves. ♥

Yesterday I wore my Millie Meyer Pearls with my grey cashmere sweater & jeans...

...I took lunch to the Mr. in my MM Pearls, grocery shopped, cleaned out the fridge & swepted & mopped the kitchen floor - all in my Millie Meyer Pearls & Cashmere sweater. I felt like a domostic house wife with class, or so I told my husband.

Breakfast for Dinner

I must confess I am a sucker for breakfast at dinnertime. Well, actually I could eat breakfast everyday for every meal, especially but not limited to cereal!

This evening my husband had a teaching meeting after a full day of well, teaching & this evening he has soccer conditioning with his JV girls. So needless to say I was in charge of cooking dinner. And if you've learned anything about me it is that I CANNOT COOK.
I over boil water.
Over cook mac & cheese.
It is pretty much hopeless.

But tonight I took a shot at it.
& I made...
Banana-nut pancakes.
They were delicious.
& I only burnt two of them. :)

I used a box of good ol' Hungry Jack Mix
added some cinnamon & vanilla for extra yummy-ness
crushed up some nuts and put it in the batter
poured the mix into the pan and added a few slices of banana
& wha-la, pure delicious banana-nut pancakes.

Even the Mr. love them.

♥ Bon Appetit. Erica

Toms Tree

When I should've been studying...

... I was scouring the internet for spring shoes - even though today in Michigan it was FREEZING and snowed {again}.

I came across these & I WANT THEM:

{for her}

{for him}

Their TOMS & not only does the "One for One" apply to these beauties but part of the cost ($54) goes towards the Charlize Theron Africa Outreach Project which creates and support mobile health clinics and development programs to address the needs of at-risk youth and communities in Africa, particularly those suffering from HIV/AIDS.

Check this out too - April 5, 2011 ONE DAY WITHOUT SHOES

& I may just catch myself purchasing these for myself & perhaps those for the Mr. too. :)

Happy Saturday! {Keep Warm}

Yesterday evening when I should have been studying & working on my online homework, I, instead put on some LAYERS & walked my homeless looking self to Kroger for a Red Box rental!

So worth it.

{favorite boots: Sperry's - from Christmas}

i love

Another one of my new FAVORITES as of recently {thanks again to my local RITE AID} is TIGI BED HEAD Self Absorbed Shampoo & Conditioner it smells like oranges which isn't my favorite part but how my hair feels & most of all looks after using it is so AMAZING. And plus i've gotten tons of compliments. :) It makes my hair so shinny & not oily - which is a double plus.

I firstt got mine at RITE AID
But I found them online for less HERE
& I spoke with my hair dresser & she said I could buy them through her for cheaper & even get the BIG bottles. Whooo hoooo.

This afternoon I stopped in my local Rite Aid for a few items & came home with a new FAVORITE.

I purchased a great nail color by SINFUL COLORS which I have never tried before but with a price tag of $1.99 I thought, hmm, why not! & this evening when I used it - it was instant L-O-V-E. The brush is a.m.a.z.i.n.g & it drys SUPER FAST.
& the color I bought is called VACATION TIME. Perfect. Considering we got a bit ton of snow yesterday & it's freezing here in Michigan. I could use a little vacation.
