The Obstinate Daughter is a great little spot for amazing, eclectic food, awesome decor, and friendly, warm staff! They offer lunch, dinner, and brunch. They have fun items like cinnamon buns and seafood to pasta and pizza! They have food specials and awesome drinks as well.

I stopped in for brunch. I had the cinnamon bun which was huge and topped with pecans, the italian stallion pizza which was 11 inches of yummy goodness. It had just the right about of sauce, italian sausage and meatballs, topped with arugula. I washed it all down with a signature cocktail.

Of course there is a nice historic story that goes with the theme of the restaurant (check out their website). They take reservations as well and I definitely suggest making a reservation this spot is popular and for good reason!

Live near by, planning a trip, or just stopping through, The Obstinate Daughter should definitely be on the itinerary!

Simple Orange Chicken

Happy Monday! Today I’m sharing a recipe for orange chicken! This is so simple and delicious!

You need chicken, I used boneless skinless chicken breasts and I cut them into cubes. I used a pack of frozen stir fry veggies and for the orange sauce you need a jar of orange marmalade, BBQ sauce, and soy sauce.

Cook the chicken in a pan, add veggies and put on medium heat while you prepare the orange sauce.

For the orange sauce you’re going to use the whole jar of orange marmalade, 1 cup of BBQ sauce, and 2 tablespoons of soy sauce. Depending on how orange you like your chicken will tell you if you need to add more BBQ sauce but no more than 2 cups!

Mix all together and pour over chicken and veggies. Cook on low for about 10 minutes, take it off the heat let sit for 10ish minutes and serve!

So easy! So good!

Sunday Brunch

Sundays are for brunch! I love brunch because you can really eat anything!

Today’s menu consisted of biscuits and gravy, mini pimento cheese sandwiches, and the star of the show cheesecake stuffed strawberries! For drinks there was a fruity cocktail with a fizz twist.

Family Photo Wall

Happy Wednesday everyone! Today I want to share my take on the family photo wall.

I take a lot of pics on my cell phone,  who doesn’t? I also live in an apartment where I’m not about to put a bunch of holes in the wall to hang picture frames. I use the free prints app a lot too! I mean a lot! It’s an app that prints your pics for free you just pay shipping!

So I have all these pics laying around. Solution:

I bought these lighted strands that come with little clothes pins. I’ve found them at Home Goods, TJ Maxx, Rue 21, a bunch of places! Price? 7 bucks!  The clothes pins are metallic and some have designs. The strands light up you just add batteries.

I arranged the strands how I wanted on the wall and used the clothes pins to hang the pictures! Easy, simple, and fun!

Lace Dresser Update

Hello and happy Sunday! You may remember but I did a post on the blog a long time ago where I did an update to my mom’s old dresser with paint and lace.

It has proven to be a very popular post even today! Well I decided to update that dresser again!

I changed the paint and the way the lace was placed this time. I also added new pulls. Check out the before and after and if you want to see the original, search for the lace dresser post to see where it all started!

Glam Up Your Bathroom 3 Ways

Say it with me no ugly bathrooms! Often times our bathrooms are not thought of as a room to decorate or a room that can be fashionable and functional. Outside of coordinating towels and a cute shower curtain what are other steps you can take to give your bathroom a little more flair? I’m glad you asked! Here are three very simple ways to class up your powder room.

  1. Presentation is everything! Take certain bathroom items out of their packaging like Q-tips, cotton rounds/balls, soap, etc. and place them in jars, decorative containers, trays, etc.PhotoGrid_1518880036716
  2. Show off your fragrances. Not only it is pleasing to the eye but it’s easy to see what fragrance you want to use that day!PhotoGrid_1518879942314
  3. Roll your towels. It’s stylish and fun! Find a big basket or stack them on top of each other. Atypical ways to show off and store your towels definitely adds a little something to your bathroom. PhotoGrid_1518879700004

Bonus tip: Clear your vanity off. The less clutter on your counter top the more aesthetically pleasing and the cleaner the counter top stays.

Are you running off to glam up your bathroom?

Coffee Table Styling

Are you a knick-knack person? Do you like tchotchkes? I do! I use my knick-knacks to add a flair to tables, bookshelves, etc. I use them as something extra or finishing touches.

I feel like your coffee table just screams for little decorative extras. Why not? I don’t drink coffee so I have no other choice. JK. The coffee table is such a versatile piece and often times it’s the center piece of a room, so have a little fun with it.

You can go in many different directions with coffee table styling depending on the fashion or the function of the room. This is were knick-knacks or tchotchkes come in. You can add these in to make something functional look fabulous.

Here are a few examples of different styles and pieces that create different looks.

As you can see you have quite a few options to mix and match I incorporated pictures, flowers, and books. You can add or take away just depends on your preference or the aesthetic of the room. You can have fun with color or stick to a theme.
