Good morning and happy Monday. Today is my 28th Birthday. When did I start getting so old? Ha no I know it’s not old, and I honestly don’t feel 28 at all, but lo and behold I am now that age. I don’t know what my lovely kids and husband have planned for me today, they are all still sleeping, besides my hyper little 2-year-old. She is sitting here playing with our cat who she constantly pushes to the limits and I’m waiting for the day that she learns her limits. I know it’s coming soon. Read more

Finally its FRIDAY! Whoop let’s all put  on our party hats to ring in the weekend. I have the next 9 days off and I don’t even know what to do with myself. Maybe do a little this and that, or just a whole lot of nothing. Yeah, I’m a homebody. I would like to go and do some stuff though. Monday is my Birthday and I usually don’t do anything to celebrate but I may just treat myself for once. Who knows, the possibilities are endless and I just have to get my creative juices flowing.  Read more

Monday Monday Monday, MONDAY! A start to another work week. Today I have off from work, so I am going to try my hardest to go to the meat shoppe that I’ve been craving for the longest time now. Next week is my birthday week and I just so happen to have the whole week of, no plans so if anyone knows of something I can do, especially with kids that would be great.  Read more

Do you guys remember high school well? I’ve been reminiscing for the past few days about my high school years. That may be because I have my 10 year high school reunion this weekend. Oh my. Time has gone by so fast. In those last 10 year I’ve managed to get married, have 4 children and buy our first home. Might not sound like much but it feels like a lot.  Read more

Thick Fudge Brownies with Salted Caramel Frosting

I have noticed after blogging awhile that I do my best writing in the mornings. I used to try to get everything accomplished at night but that didn’t work to well. I had supper to make, kids to feed, kids to put to bed. Then it just got too late and I knew I still had to do so much and all I wanted to do was rush through a blog post and get it scheduled to post the next day. Seriously not the best thing that I could have done.  Read more

Good morning everyone! I hope you all had a wonderful weekend! Not a lot accomplished around here. Kids went to the lake and a baseball game, I read a book, cleaned the house and just generally tried to relax. I’ve noticed these days I’m more or less wanting to relax when I have free time than to go go go like I used to. Don’t get me wrong, I love going and exploring but sometimes I need to appreciate the slow parts of life. Read more

I hope everyone had a good weekend. It was hot here in Minnesota the past few days! Yesterday we had a heat warning out across the state. I don’t know about you guys, but if you have ever been to Minnesota in the summer the humidity can be a beyotch. It was over 100 with the humidity today. I literally walked out of my house and my glasses fogged up. I can honestly say that has never happened to me in the summer. The winter yes, summer no. Read more

Can you believe it’s already Wednesday? This week is going quickly, which I love. I am so ready for the weekend. Looking forward to doing a whole bunch of nothing. I bought the kids a new little pool since our other one had a hole in it and they popped the end of our slip n slide. Don’t even get me started on our sprinkler. My daughter will scream bloody murder if that awful thing comes near her. Honestly it is an unfounded fear, but hey she’s almost 2 so I guess I can’t blame her. Read more

So I have always wanted to open my own bakery. Haven’t we all? My favorite bakery is about an hour from here and it is definitely worth the drive! They have these things that are called dream whips and I would kill for them. They are a chocolate cake topped with a flavored mousse (chocolate, caramel, cherry, peanut butter) and then dipped in chocolate ganache! It is my dream to one day recreate this. At this point I haven’t attempted it yet.  Read more

Patriotic Puppy Chow 2

Who’s ready for the 4th of July? I have been having fun looking at all these creative ideas that everyone is coming up with with the red, white and blue patriotic theme! Unfortunately in Minnesota fireworks are highly regulated and we are only allowed the sad little baby ones like sparklers. Luckily we live less than an hour from the South Dakota state border and are able to go get the fun expensive ones, shhhhh.  Read more
