This past week I bought a bunch of clearance autograph frames from Kohl's. They were $8 a piece, but thanks to coupons, I got six of them for about $20. The frames were black, and that's way too dark to hang in the guestroom. So today I spray painted them the same champagne color that I painted the quatrefoil mirror and framed some of my favorite instagram pictures of the animals and hung them over the bed. LOVE how this turned out.
But first, my mirror... I can't believe I never shared this!

|Much better thanks to a can of spray paint =)|
Anyways... today those frames got the same treatment and the guestroom feels a little more finished. It still needs some type of window treatment, and new carpet. And I think I want to do something fun to the back of the bookcase. But it's starting to feel like a really nice room.
|Looooooove this. I really love the bedding.|
I also cooked some ridiculously delicious stuff today. I made a Chipotle inspired burrito bowl that was absolutely delicious and so easy to make. I'm not even posting this as a recipe, because it's just layering stuff. Mine was brown rice (cooked in chicken stock), spicy black beans, 1/2 a grilled chicken breast (marinated in this stuff), a little homemade salsa, pico de gallo & cheese. This was SO good! Oh my gosh. It wasn't as good as what I get at Chipotle, but I usually get the steak there, and all I had here was chicken. I did feel better about eating it though since I had brown rice instead of the white they serve.
|Oh my gosh, this was good.|
So since I had a healthy dinner, I of course had to treat myself to a yummy dessert. One of the agents in my office LOVES my cupcakes and has been bugging me to make some for about two months. I promised I would by the end of July. Well July is almost over (yay!!!) so it was time for me to ante up. I made one of my all time favorites: chocolate cupcakes with orange cream cheese frosting. These are so good. And the frosting is so incredible. I kinda sorta wanted to do frosting shots with what didn't get used on a cupcake. I was actually worried about the frosting, since Hermione ate the shortening that was supposed to go in it. But it seems to be holding it's shape pretty well.
|The frosting tastes like an orange push pop =)|
And of course, all of my weekends involve epic Buddy & Hermione cuteness.
Hope everyone had a great weekend!
