Five on Friday - Fireplaces, Nut Butter, and Bathrooms

Friday is here!! 

It's been a busy week, not much accomplished, but busy all the same.

Never the less, I am glad it's Friday!

On to the Five on Friday...

1. Fireplaces - Our home is 100 years old. The boiler that heats our house isn't that old, but it's acting like it lately, and although our Florida winters aren't like the other Northern winters, it still gets a bit chilly here.. and that's when our boiler decided to take a vacation..

So, we've been dressing in layers and cozy-ing up in front of our fireplace till it gets fixed.

2. Nut Butters - I love finding new companies. The newest one that I recently found was Artisana. They make unique, delicious, organic products and they sent me a box of some of their goodies to try out. OH MY!! The Cocoa Coconut Bliss is so delicious!

3. Bathrooms - It's taken me awhile to finally be ready to tackle our bathroom remodel, but for some reason it's taking FOREVER to get responses from contractors. I'm seriously thinking about getting some tools and starting it on my own.

4. Parenthood - Oh my! Last night was the last episode. I didn't cry like crazy, but it was sad. I thought they did a great job with the ending. I'm really gonna miss that show.

Valentines Day Mantel Decorations - TBT

For my Throw Back Thursday I thought I would share a blog post from a few years back.

I LOVE decorating our mantel for the different holidays and this was my first attempt at Valentines Day. This year I think I'm going to change it up a bit, so I need to start looking on Pinterest for some new ideas.

Here's what I have so far:

Coconut Blueberry Muffins via Nutiva

Coconut Flour.. 

Are you afraid of it like I was? Really, I was.. I had seen some recipes that used it, but I was just too afraid to try it out.

I was afraid that whatever I made with coconut flour would have an overwhelming taste of coconut.

I like coconut, but not an overwhelming taste of it.

But thanks to VitaCost and Nutiva, I was sent a box full of ingredients that, beyond Chia Seeds, had never used before and was now enjoyably encouraged to try out.
