Cinnamon Oatmeal and Yogurt Pancakes

A couple of months ago I shared one of my favorite recipes that I found on Pinterest (you can find that here) and thought it was time to share another one. This one was actually found by my cousin, Anne. She had pinned this recipe and was so sweet and made us a delicious batch of these Cinnamon Oatmeal and Yogurt Pancakes. They were absolutely delicious. Lillie and Lola inhaled them! You can find the recipe for these fabulous pancakes here.

Thanks so much, Anne! I hope you all have a fabulous week.

Some Tiny Updates to Lillie and Lola's Room and the Playroom

I mentioned a little while ago that we added some pink buffalo check duvet covers from IKEA to the ends of the girls bed (and think I posted a pic on Instagram) and moved the rug from the girls' bedroom into the playroom. The duvet covers were purchased a year or so ago and we brought them up to Jason's house with plans of designing the room around them. However, we ended up going a completely different direction to keep the room more unified with the rest of his house and therefore decided to bring these back to use in our house. It was too busy with the patterns on the rug and the duvets so I ended up moving the rug into the playroom.

When I do find a new rug for the bedroom I will be going up a size bigger than the chevron one (which I think is five by eight). I'm not sure why but I have on more than one occasion gone with a rug that is too small for the space. I think it's because once you go up in size the price jumps so much. But even so, I should know better by now. Haha! So, hopefully I won't make that mistake again. =)

Here's a picture of the playroom with the rug in here. It's not what I would have chosen if I was looking for a rug for that spot but the girls are excited about it and in this room that's all that really matters =).

And here are some more photos of their room:

Their Grammy gave them this Eiffel tower so we moved the birdcage over to the other dresser and added the Eiffel tower here.

And the girl's absolutely LOVED the bookshelves their sweet little friends had when we were over there playing not to long ago and begged for us to copy them exactly! We ended up getting ours from Target instead of IKEA but they have the same look and Lillie and Lola were absolutely thrilled.

I also wanted to re-introduce one of our sponsors, Shay Designs

Shay Designs is a lovely business owned by Sharon. Her shop is filled with beautiful hand-stamped jewelry like this necklace :

And this pretty piece:

I hope you all have a fabulous weekend!

An Oil Painting for Our Den

I took these pictures a few weeks ago and finally am getting around to posting them. We haven't changed much in here but we did add a painting above the fireplace (and moved the mirror that was there to the upstairs hallway). This painting was my grandfather's and my mom kindly passed it on down to me because she knew how much I loved it. I love having such a visual reminder of him in our home.

With the except of the lamps and the drapery panels we pretty much already owned everything in here before we moved which was nice. I think someday it would be kind of cool to have a chesterfield sofa in here to replace the white one but that's probably quite a few years away...

I'd like to have some more of Jon's basketball related things in here but haven't won him over to that idea yet...

The beautiful butterfly tray was a gift from Jon's mom.
