Man....i'm still at Barnes & Nobles, try to get things done, blog, etc, and i'm FALLING ASLEEP. It's quite terrible. 

SO...since i have BEDS on the brain, i'm figured why not blog about them right? This top one i would love to have be my room, i LOVE the way the light shines through, and the the layers of cozy bedding.

The rest of these beds i realize are children's bed rooms, but i find them so cleverly decorated, and inspiring. I would TOTALLY sleep in one of those rooms as well. :D

I'm hoping to catch some great ZZZ's tonight.
I hope you have a RESTFUL day!!

Busy Lives and Chocolate Potato Chips...

decemberlife2

It has been an EXTREMELY busy month! I will never again complain when i work a measly 40 hours a week and only have one day off a week. For, the month of December 07, i only had three days off. Almost all of those wonderful three days were spent being responsible and getting what needed to be done, done. Never again, will i complain about only getting 5 hours of sleep, when this past week i worked three 16 hours shifts and only slept 13 hours combined for those three crazy days.

All of those crazy hours and hard work has [man, i hate to count my chickens] worked out for me though. I am not only being kept on staff at my new job, but i got promoted as well!! It's a great honor and was the MOST determined I've ever been at a job. Thank GOD it worked out!!

This year i tried to make chocolate covered potato chips, which was WAY harder then i anticipated, but everyone seemed to rave about them! This is the recipe i used;

chips

INGREDIENTS
1 pound high quality milk chocolate, chopped
8 cups ridged potato chips

DIRECTIONS
Place about 3/4 of the chocolate into a heat safe bowl, and place over the top of a pan of simmering water. If you have a double boiler, use that. Heat, stirring occasionally until the chocolate has melted, then continue to heat the chocolate. Stir occasionally. As soon as the melted chocolate reaches temperature, remove it from the heat, and stir in the remaining chopped chocolate until melted. Continue stirring until the chocolate has cooled. Touching a dab of chocolate to your lip will feel cool.

Use tongs to dip potato chips one at a time into the chocolate. Place on waxed paper starting at the point farthest from you and working your way in so as not to drip on your finished chips. Cool until set. You may refrigerate if you like.

[I do have to tell you though, that 'use tongs to dip potato chip part is CRAP! I had to literally paint each chip individually because the chocolate was to think and the chips were to delicate. It took over two hours to paint all the stupid chips. They did come out great though.]
