Thursday, March 29, 2012


Tuesday was a fabulous day! It was a day spent with my sister-in-law, we shopped at craft stores, ate lunch and had the best smoothies EVER!!! Although I wish we wouldn't have had McDonalds for lunch...yes we ate fast food. It happens even to the best of us me, sometimes. My stomach was upset all night long and part of yesterday. So although I caved, I am now even more resolute to not eat fast food. Yuck!!

Menu Planning

It's Monday and I am armed with a cup of coffee and a head full of ideas...better watch out!!! It's time to go grocery shopping again, ugh! It's not one of my favorite tasks to get done, but it is a very necessary one...much like doing the dishes and the laundry. One of the reasons it drives me crazy is because I go up and down every aisle and get what I think we'll need over the next two weeks and I often have to go back and get the other ingredients needed for our meals. To make the trip less crazy it's time to menu plan.

Fishin' In the Creek

Happy Thursday all!!! We have a creek that runs behind our house...a creek full of fish! Delicious! I enjoy eating seafood, and our whole family does as well!!! FFF Hubby and kiddos have been out almost every day catching trout left and right! It seems like as soon as they go out it's only a matter of 5 minutes or less and they're back in with their catch!!! 

18" Trout caught by Sassy Sis and FFF Hubby (this guy was floppin' all over still)

Chic Bowtique Review & Giveaway

Most of you know that I'm getting pretty good at being a domestic goddess. (Just go along with my delusions, mkay?!) I've become quite the cook and I love crafting. I have one (okay maybe more) downfall to this domestic thing...bows are not my thing...I mean making them! I'm too much of a perfectionist and everything has to be exactly the same when it comes to making bows. (OK, in my head it does!) This poses a problem for someone with a small very large bow addiction. I love doing my girls' hair and adorning there 'dos with bows. Even my sisters and friends with girls know how I feel about bows because I always say "a girl shouldn't have naked hair" and carry around extra bows! So what's a gal to do if she can't make them? I have found the perfect solution!

Happy Friday!!!! So glad another week's coming to an end, aren't you? It's time again for another Friday Five!!!! Here we go!!

Fashion ~ Would you put this on your new lil' one?


We had a fiesta at Le Casa de Fast Food Free last night! It was a lot of fun and the food was delicious. Not to toot my own horn or anything, but I did a fabulous job for my first all Mexican meal. It turned out pretty good! Everything was made from scratch! Our menu was:
  • Carne Asada
  • Mexican Rice
  • Tortillas
  • Refried Beans
Yes, I said made from scratch! All of it! By me!!!! Yep! You heard right!  And the whole dinner was 600 calories!!!! Woo-hoo! Delicious, healthy and filling!!! I bet you want the recipes. Well, don't you?! I thought so!

Trying New Things's what's for dinner! Well technically Carne Asada complete with homemade tortillas and homemade Mexican rice, but carne asada is beef! I'm trying another new recipe tonight. The carne asada recipe I'm going to make is a healthy, simple version. Although the tortilla and rice recipes are tried and true ones passed down to me from my mother in law. There is nothing better than a hot, fresh tortilla with some butter spread on it! Delicious! I I can't wait to review this and give you pictures! We love Mexican food around here. I always have to separate it before adding spices because I don't like spicy food but everyone else in our house, including Lil' Miss, enjoys it.

1. Are you in a job that you truly enjoy? Yes!

2. If you could do any job in the world what would it be?
Exactly what I do now!

3. If you could be a character in a novel who would you be? Esther Summerson from Bleak House by Charles Dickens. I admire her great courage and quality of character - her kindness and her ability to become friends with just about anyone just because she is open to serving others.

Manic Monday & Baked Chicken

Howdy, folks! We're coming off a long weekend with Moose. He had mid winter break and spent time with his Grammy and Auntie Am this weekend. He's to big to call his aunts Aunties....or so he just Aunt Am and Uncle Jake and cousins. Anyways it makes this a manic morning around here. He enjoyed the long break and wasn't ready to get back to the swing of things. He got all ready for school and then curled up on the couch...silly kid. The girls were up early and full of energy and I forgot to make coffee....but not to worry! I'm on my first cup now. What a crazy Monday morning 'round here! 

Now on to figure out what's for dinner tonight.

FASHION ~ Would you decorate your baby's room with skulls?
I've seen a lot of baby stuff lately with Jolly Rogers all over all colors. It's not something I could do...skulls and new babies just don't mix in my book.
