Can you believe... is
Picture taken today on the way to pick up Sahra
It feels like summer has arrived and that in mid February. I have never experienced anything like that.
Don't take me wrong I am not complaining, I really do enjoy this weather.
The kids already asking to wear Flip-Flops and T-Shirts to school.
Next week I will try to post and update you a little more.

Take care

I tried to post this yesterday, but for some reason it would not let me.

This is what Nesreen made us for Valentine's Day

Create by Nesreen
She is really in to Origami right now and worked very hard on it over the weekend.
Hope you had a nice Valentine's Day

Takeling a teenager's room

For a while now Nadia has been asking me if I could redo her old tag board and rearrange her room. So finally this weekend we tackled her room, lol.
It took us almost all day and  I had to get Salem to help us, because her furniture is to heavy for me ( I know mom I still need to take it easy,lol).

So here is what Nadia's old tag board looked like before we took on the change

And here is a picture off her room after we rearranged it

Can you guess where the tag board is?
In case you can not see the tag board good (which I can't) here is a closer look

Nadia is so happy with the outcome of her room and thanks to Karin for sending me those amazing fabrics I was able to redo her blah tag board in an  amazing wall art.
How was your weekend?
Take care

Something sweet...

Today I thought why not share something sweet with you for a change.

Sweet Cherry Muffin

Here is what you will need for a dozen: 

100 ml neutral  vegetable cooking oil
200 ml buttermilk
1 Egg
250 g Flour (I used regular unbleached flour)
2 tsp. baking powder
150 g sugar (I used 100 g)
1 pack. Vanilla sugar
1 can or jar pitted cherries (drained and chopped in pieces)( if you do not like cherries you can use any other canned fruit) 

Preheat oven to 375 F or 160 C.
In medium bowl whisk oil, buttermilk and egg until well blended. In a separate bowl combine flour, baking powder, sugar and vanilla sugar. Mix and  add to the liquid mixture. Whisk well until smooth and add chopped cherries. Scoop in a paper lined muffin tray and bake for apr.20 minutes.


I am really not good in writing recipes,lol. Let me know if you need any help.
P.S. : This will be a great treat for Valentine's day.
I got the recipe from one off the German magazines, lol.

Look who's 4

I cannot believe my little guy turned 4. It seems like yesterday that he was a baby and now he is so grown up. Time sure flies by. Makes me feel old, lol.
We were not able to got to Chuck E. Cheeses because Al came home late from work, but still had a good time. I think we will go on the weekend and I make sure I take some pictures.
But like I promised you yesterday here are some pictures of last evening.


Take care,
