High Five for Friday!!

Here are a list of my five favorite things from last week (I'm linking up with Lauren at From my grey desk blog):

1. I spent my last couple days with Shelby before he went back to Ft. Drum. We wen't to spend a lovely weekend on the coast in Rockport, Tx and caught a beautiful sunset (even in the massive, thick fog!)



2. Starting this blog! I have been reading everyones blogs lately and absolutely had to try it. So please, follow me here French Kissin' Life.

3.  The new season of the BACHELOR!  And oooohhh yes, there was already drama. Okay, don't laugh at me. I really love this show. I loved Ben last season but Ashley went with the other guy instead...so I am happy to have him back.  Do you have a favorite girl so far? Shelby and I decided we like the Texas. go figure huh? ;)


4.  My extremely yummy Cherry Pineapple Dump Cake.  So fabulous, so easy. Please comment below for a simple run down of the recipe!


5. This great Sonia Kashuk Brush Set I picked up at Target. Not too expensive, but GOOD quality brushes.  I used this as an alternative to MAC brushes (which are also wonderful!)

(Check out that cute little case that comes with!)

I hope you all have a wonderful day! 
Happy Friday!

My Magic Happy Potion

After a insane semester in college, I realized just how badly I wanted to save the money I have been spending on Starbucks coffee and get a Kuerig instead.  This Christmas I received the "toy" that caught my eye from Shelby. 


If you don't already know what exactly this is, I will explain.  It's simply a one cup coffee maker.  (That makes coffee super fast!) All you have to do is heat it up for a few minutes and place a K-Cup into the K-cup holder and press which cup size you prefer.


I received a box of 48 K-Cups for Christmas as well. So far my favorite is the Donut House Cinnamon Roll flavor. Soo yummy!!

I was shopping around online this morning and found this lovely coffee mug made by Suzy Toronto for $17.95 that says:

There are some days that I have no idea what I am doing out of bed.
I simply don't do mornings.  Well, actually I do morning...I just don't do them well without my morning fix.

So, just a word to the wise...if you want anything from me I'm happy to oblige...but just make sure you don't ask me before I get my magic happy potion, that alluring brew that transforms me into someone capable of pretending to be normal. 

(And no, I am not one of those people who has a problem with drinking too much coffee...I just have issues with drinking too little of it.)

I thought it was too cute! I may just have to purchase one. You can see more information here: Coffee Mug



Do you own a Kuerig? What is your favor flavor K-cup?

First Things First

Hi there! I'm Mackenzie. Welcome to my blog!  I'm looking forward to learning and sharing ideas about baking, fashion, and crafts...(and of course any other interesting things going on).  

Outside of baking, fashion, and crafts I enjoy spending as much time as possible with my not so perfect, yet awesome family, and lovely boyfriend, Shelby...who is currently stationed in Fort Drum, NY. 


I'm originally from George West but moved to Victoria many years ago.  I now live in Corpus Christi (for school).



I love blogs. I've been reading blogs for a couple months now. I wanted to start one a while back but never got around to it. But here I am! It is a place for me to share things I love and hopefully inspire some creativity with  whomever is interested! :)


I graduated from Saint Joseph High School in 2008.  I now attend Texas A&M University of Corpus Christi and will be graduating with my bachelors degree in business marketing in May 2012.
