website i l.o.v.e.

not sure how i'm just now discovering this, but i have to share. this website, the foundary, is great--new stuff everyday and good prices on home decor. i ordered a great burlap flour sack pillow a few weeks ago for like $20 and love it.  forgive the poor quality of the's a rainy, lazy morning and quite frankly, i didn't feel like getting the "good" camera out!

so check it out, if you haven't already!

and if you use this link, i get referral credits and will be your BFF forevah.

now if there are any more sites out there like this that i'm missing, you have got to fill me in, people. i know all of the fashion ones, but home decor is where my heart is.

martha moments: strawberry pretzel salad

i'm usually not one for jell-o (or anything congealed for that matter). the word "congealed" itself just grosses me out...but this dessert salad is one of my favorites!

strawberry pretzel salad

you'll need:
2 cups pretzels, crushed
3/4 cups melted butter
2 Tbsp. sugar
8 oz. cream cheese
1 cup sugar
2 cups Cool Whip
 2-10 oz. packages frozen strawberries
2 cups boiling water
1 large package strawberry Jell-O

To make:

Mix pretzels, butter and the 2 Tbsp. sugar.  Press into bottom of a rectangular baking dish. Cook at 400 for 8-10 minutes.

Mix cream cheese and 1 cup sugar together. Fold in the Cool Whip.  Spread onto cooled crust.
Combine boiling water and Jell-O, then add strawberries.  Let cool before pouring over the top of the cream cheese. Refrigerate to congeal, then slice into squares and enjoy!
