Things I love Thursday: Nauseous Egg Separator

What to do when a recipe calls for just an egg white or just an egg must separate the egg. Now you coooouuuuld just crack the egg shell and do the old pass the yolk bag and forth between the 2 halves but really why do that when you have one of these:

My husband's nanny gave it to us and it makes me snicker every time I use it, not to mention it's beautiful handmade pottery. 

Go see the Diaper Diaries for more loved things.

Top Ten Tuesday: happy un-birthday to Nugget

It's 9pm on Monday night, feels like 11pm and I am starving. Amanda's post sure isn't helping...

On a completely unrelated note, today is the 2 year anniversary of our small dog Nugget finding us on the side of the highway. We were taking touristy pictures by a giant gold nugget...hence the name. (That and he is such an odd looking dog, very low to the ground with a big head, Nugget just suits him)
So without further ado I present the past 2 years of Nugget in photos:

1. The day we found him.

2. Shaved due to all the burrs/mats in his fur...poor dog

3. furry friends

4. working on his tan

5. hanging out in the snow, one of his favourite places to be

6.snuggling on the couch

7. sympathy morning sickness

8. the rarely seen nugget-crocopus

9. Oh Christmas tree

10. on baby duty

The question this a good enough excuse to bake cupcakes or maybe just a cake?
