dublin doors

i love all the colorful doors in Dublin

whether the Irish were rebelling after Queen Victora's death
when everyone was ordered to paint there doors black in morning


if Irish wives were sick of there drunken husbands stumbling
home from the pub into the wrong house.

no matter how they can to be I LOVE THEM!

Happy St. Patrick's Day!!!

I was going to make some delish Irish stew, my favorite dish from Dublin.
but i was craving some breakfast for dinner 
so green shamrock pancakes it was!

i tried this for a pancake batter dispenser 
idea from here

i also tried this new whole wheat pancake recipe that was yum!
and just so you all know 
shamrocks are extremely hard to shape out of pancake batter.

these were my best three
the rest just looked like little monsters
new halloween breakfast? maybe.

i am mormon

maybe i just spent a few hours of my day watching these videos.
waste of time?
i don't think so.
i love hearing peoples stories, because everyone has one
and love to hear peoples testimonies.

check out some of my favorites

Shawni, Bryon, Nadja, Anne, Alex, Mia, Allan
okay they are all good.

Funny story about Allan, we had the LDS missionaries over for dinner the other night and it was one of the boy's FIRST day on his mission, he had arrived in Texas only a few hours earlier. After dinner the other missionary who has been on his mission for a year now pulled up the website to show us the videos because Ryan had not seen them. The missionary pulled up his favorite one, which was Allen, and just so happened Allen is the other missionary (who just got here) best friends family from back home. Small world.

That would have made a lot more sense if i was better at remembering names.


It's a fun website with lots of good info!

hi, i am whittney

i found this, here

then typed and typed and typed then delete, delete, delete.

i will just stick with the image.

colorful not quirky

today i hung out in the kitchen
making jam
starwberry AND raspberry
do you know how much sugar is in jam?
I didn't, but it's a lot....yum
wanna know what else?
jam is super easy to make

it goes a little like this....

while jamming out to...

i was nervous
i called my mom
5+ times
but turns out it is pretty
easy peasy.

I bought Sure Jell Premium Fruit Pectin
and followed the inside instructions for
{quick & easy freezer jam & jelly}

today really was a day of experiments
i also tried this new hair do
my friend Chelse linked a Maiden Braid Tutorial to her blog
and i have been dying to try it
the results....

meish meish 
i need thicker hair! 
well it was fun to try 
even if i had to add a braided headband thing to fill it in.

i also applied for a job
{okay i am always doing this}
but this job is way different than the usual {advertising} jobs i apply to
its for a Adoption Agency
to be a Placement Coordinator 
i think it would be such a rewarding job
keeping my fingers crossed!

i bought my first Sam's Club membership today
totally made me feel like a grown up

the guy two people in front of me
at the store bought $105 worth of
Dr. Pepper. Ya that's A LOT of DP.

then the guy right in front of me 
bought a bajillion packs of kool-aid
did you know they ring those up individually?
i did because i always get in line behind 
the person that is buying out the store of kool-aid
true story.
so during this mayhem
i read a cute article about  Zooey Deschanel
i heart her.

Happy ALMOST Friday!!!
Ohhh how i love the weekends!!!

So remember how Ryan gave me tickets for Cirque Du Soleil Alegria for V-day?
Well it was a few weekends ago and I forgot to tell you how awesome it was.

We started the night a Water Street Seafood Company with some friends that were also going to the show. 
It was our first time, i give it a thumb up. I love going downtown.
Then watched incredibly strong and flexible humans do extremely awesome things.

A few of my favorites.

the dude who swung all over the place hanging on to a stretchy rope from the ceiling

the dudes that bounced and flipped on these bendy balance beam type things

the strongest guy ever who could probably live on his hands  

this girl, i loved her ribbon dance and Ryan fell in love with her hula hoop skills and her
i was jealous. i can hulla hoop too... kinda

these two freakishly flexible girls

lots of awesome trapeze people

the cast flipping around on the trampoline stage

and the fire man who lit the stage on fire

oh and music was beautiful!

Twas a good night!

little fact about me:
i am the worlds worst decorator 
first word that comes to mind awkward
i struggle
not being able to paint does not improve the situation
our apartment needs some major help
so i am going to give decorating a try
worst case i hate it, and take it all down, right?
so bare with me in this post and many to come
as I finally try to pull together our home.
No laughing, okay maybe a little because well i am too.

Project 1: Kitchen

I wanted color, bright colors 
pretty much I want it to look like my favorite antro dish towels
so i used them
for wall art....

 finished project

3 easy steps
Step 1: iron flat dish towel
Step 2: use clear thumb tacks to pin dishtowel around the canvas
Step 3: hang on the wall

 Played around with adding a bit more color.
 Still looking for a dish tower to display some of my colorful dishes.
and that's all i have for now!

i joined, i like it
i am learning more about it
my widget is just the left over there ----> and slightly down
and if you have it too let me know!

also lately I am obsessed with words.with.friends
it's a scrabble like game
for iphones, droids and maybe more
my username is Whittneyevans
not to be confused with my usual gamer name of potterpants
because honestly, i was not thinking.
