Everyone needs a treat, especially when your trying to diet.  It seems eating healthy makes you crave sweets even more than normal! I've got just the right dessert to curve your sweet tooth and its a lower calorie choice! This recipe is ZERO weight watchers points! I wasn't sure what to name it so I went with "Root Beer Float" although it's more float and less root. Let's just get to the recipe. 

Fat Free Whipped Cream: I used Cool Whip.
Diet Root Beer

Add 1-2 scoops of your fat free whipped cream and follow with the diet root beer. I used about 1/2 a cup, but since it's diet, you can use however much you please. 

There you have it, a dessert that's ZERO weight watchers points! You can't go wrong here! Be inspired and create!

Light Blue and White Dishes: My Copy Cat Look

A little while back I posted this picture of dishes I adored, but they are quite expensive.


Last night I found my copycat look! I got a setting of 4 for less than the price of one piece of the inspirational dishes. Where did I find these you might ask? Home Goods! I've also seen them at TJ Maxx. I got 2 light blue plates and a white bowl for each setting. I've got big plans for my dining table, hope to show them to you soon!

Spring Craft Ideas: Floral Arrangements

Spring is fast approaching and with a new season comes new crafts! My favorite part of Spring is the color scheme Spring brings. I love levels of pastels and saturated brights. One craft that can drastically change the look of your home is changing up your dining floral arrangement or center piece. This is also relatively inexpensive and easy. Here are some ideas for Spring floral arrangements. 

Spring Crafts: Floral Arrangements 

Tulips are a great spring flower. For a simplistic look choose a simple patterned vase with white flowers. Let the green from the stems be your color focal point. 

Pink and white are beautiful for Spring, so soft and welcoming. Use an old pitcher as a vase and fill with your favorite flowers and color combinations. 

Another natural look can be achieved with hydrangeas. Mix white and green hydrangeas for a full and clean arrangement. 

Who doesn't love the ever so popular owl? This white owl vase is perfect for a Spring center piece. Add wild flowers and thin branches to elongate this arrangement. 

Spring crafts are a great way to say goodbye to Winter and welcome the warm days ahead. Be inspired and create!
