Hello and welcome to my blog! Dale continues to work on the media room! I can’t wait to show you! I ask Mr. Phillips if he could give me a time frame, when the media room might be complete? His prediction is sometime in February. Mean while I have been organizing our home and getting rid of stuff and enjoying my homemade lattes! Ha-ha! Yummy! I also have been looking through paint samples, which I love to do!
I am looking through some neutral paint color samples for our kitchen and dining room. The walls already have a neutral color, but it’s not bright enough for me. I think painting the walls a lighter color will bring some much needed contrast. This home project will happen at a later date, because our master bedroom is next on the list! Yay! I have already chosen a color for our room. But you will have to wait to find out! Ha-ha!
I purchased this beautiful Better Homes & Garden quilt from Walmart. It reminds me of winter white! The gray stitching is so beautiful! I still have my gray quilt you’ve seen in previous pictures. I plan to keep it and maybe mix it with this quilt to give it a different look. I kept the snowflake pillow on the bed from my Christmas décor. It’s a cute winter pillow!
This is my dining room buffet and one of my favorite spots to photograph. Inside the white pitcher is the dried sea oats grass I used for my Christmas tablescape. Shown here. I love this natural grass, so dainty and beautiful.

Elizabeth’s Homemade Mocha Latte
This is how I make my homemade latte.
This can be made without an espresso machine or a frothier.
- Brewed Espresso. I use Starbucks Espresso Roast. (Regular coffee maker)
- Milk of your choice. I use Almond Milk. 3/4 cup of milk, pour milk in a plastic shaker and shake it up for about 60 seconds. (Good exercise for the arms.)
- Pour the milk in a Pyrex glass. I use a 2 cup Pyrex measuring cup, Microwave the milk for 1 minute.
- Reach for your favorite coffee cup! Pour the brewed espresso about a third of a cup or more if you like. I put a teaspoon of sugar, more if you’d like. For the mocha flavor I use Nestle Coffee-mate, café mocha, about 1 teaspoon. You can find this in the dairy aisle. You can also use chocolate syrup. Stir!
- Pour the milk in your coffee cup make sure to get all the foam!
- Sprinkle some chocolate sprinkles on top and now your all set!
