Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Dip - What Megans Making - StumbleUpon Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Dip It’s time for a little confession. I realize this may get me shunned (especially in my hometown of Pittsburgh!), but….I don’t like football. I don’t like to watch it, I never liked playing football with my friends, I don’t even like playing catch with a football. If there was one thing Mike could change about me, I’m pretty sure this would be it.

Inspired Entertaining: DIY Chalkboard Wine Glasses Last month I got an email from one of those "deal of the day" websites featuring a very cute set of wine glasses with chalkboard stems from a company called Chalkboard China. I've seen chalkboard glasses before, and always thought them to be a fun and chic way for guests to keep track of their glass throughout the night so you don't end up with mixed-up glasses or dozens of half-full glasses left around the house. But all the ones I've seen in stores feature a strip of chalkboard paint across the bowl of the glass, which I've always felt looks awkward and takes away from the beauty of the wine or beverage in the glass. What I like about this version is that the writing part is at the bottom on the stem and foot of the glass, so it doesn't compete with the beverage. I also like that the simple black foot on the glass is in itself an elegant design element, and would work just as well with no writing on it. So I figured, "I can totally make that myself!"

The Best Late Night Cafes in Toronto The best late night cafes in Toronto offer a tranquil alternative to a typical bar night with friends, and a comfortable space to get some work done in the evening. I always appreciate the option of going to a space near guaranteed to be void of any hair-gel/emblem-chain outfit combination, as well as one where music is complementary to, and not overshadowing, conversation. These cafes also serve as optimal environments for late-night studying, or in my case, blogging. That means comfortable chairs, a cozy atmosphere, great caffeine options, and tasty treats. And free WiFi is always an added bonus. Here is the list of the best late night cafes in Toronto.

Garden Balls So when I was at my mom’s house a while back, the kids and I decided to to a project for Nana. My mom loves to garden, so we thought a garden project would be perfect for her. At Michael’s craft store I got some Styrofoam balls, grout, glue, stones, and various sized flat backed glass pieces. We started out by gluing the glass to the balls. we used E-6000 glue, which ate the foam a bit, but worked really well – I’m sure there is a glue out there that works perfectly for foam and glass, but the E-6000 did the job!
