Slice of Life Saturday's | www.themessybakerblog.com

It’s fall, y’all! {Source} And yet, I haven’t touched my riding boots. It’s still too warm in Baltimore for fashionable fall boots, which is a shame, because I really didn’t feel like painting my toenails again. But, I did. I painted them a pretty fall color because I don’t think it’s fair for other...

Pantry Oranization with Oxo POP Containers & The Container Store | www.themessybakerblog.com

Organization–we all strive for it, myself included. I don’t like being the gal with rogue chocolate chips littering the bottom of her pantry or opened bags of ┬ávarious flour and baking mixes strewn across the shelves, but, the fact is, I’m that gal.

Got rotten bananas? Overripe bananas gross me out–gack! <— That was my attempt at a sound effect for gagging. Lesson: I’m horrible at creating sound effects. Which brings me to my next point; why are boys so good at sound effects? They can make realistic shooting noises, mock a motorcycle rumbling down the road,...
