This and That

So I went to Target last week when they had the "itso storage" on sale. To my delight, they had pinks and cute polka dot patterns that matched the girls room to a T! I am slightly obsessed with organization you see. It is perfect for their closet! Here is a picture of what the system looks like (this is a stock picture):

I'm looking around my house wondering what else I can organize?? LOL!

I also wanted to share a yummy recipe I tried today. It is extremely healthy!! I used a Maple Praline syrup to top it off.

Here is the recipe:

1 1/2 cups old-fashioned oatmeal
1 1/2 cups whole wheat flour
2 teaspoons baking soda
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 cups buttermilk
1 cup milk
1/4 cup vegetable oil
2 eggs
1/3 cup sugar
3 tablespoons chopped walnuts (optional)

1.Grind the oats in a blender or food processor until fine. In a large bowl, combine ground oats, whole wheat flour, baking soda, baking powder, and salt.
2.In another bowl, combine buttermilk, milk, oil, egg, and sugar with an electric mixer until smooth. Mix wet ingredients into dry with a few swift strokes. Stir in nuts, if desired.
3.Lightly oil a skillet or griddle, and preheat it to medium heat. Ladle 1/3 cup of the batter onto the hot skillet; cook the pancakes for 2 to 4 minutes per side, or until brown.

And the kids loved them!

I've been super busy working on CHA projects for Pink Paislee. Can't wait to share my creations with you all :)

Have a great weekend!
