Howdy howdy my friends! If you haven’t been to a picnic or family get together yet this year and haven’t had something similar to this post then you’re in luck. This is my absolute favorite potluck dish. So healthy but yet so so so good. Filled to the brim with veggies and beans, marinated and then served with chips. What gets better than that! Read more

Frosted Potato Chip Krispies

Good morning all you lovely people! I am so happy to finally have my new site designed and switched over to a new host. I feel like I am coming farther as a blogger these days. Taking some seriously steps to be taking seriously. It’s been a lot of headaches trying to get everything figured out and moved and pointed and this and that. I’ve been a busy girl since I’ve done all of it by myself. Does make me feel more accomplished though, knowing that I am able to figure these things out. Read more

Good morning to all my lovely readers and happy Friday. I hope everyone has some awesome weekend plans. I can’t believe we are in our last month of Summer vacation from school. I’ve been reading on some other posts on how their kids go back next week or started back this week, all I can say is wow. My kids sure are lucky, they don’t have to go back until September 8th. So they better enjoy this nice Minnesota weather we have been having because in about 10 weeks we will be complaining about how cold it is and the snow will start flying.  Read more

My post is so late this morning. My 6-year-old asked me so sweetly to make him some pancakes and obviously I couldn’t say no. It then turned into a competition on how big mom could make a pancake and actually keep it together. Might I say that I did a pretty good job. Maybe I made an overwhelming amount of pancakes but at least they save pretty well.  Read more

So I’m officially halfway through with my vacation and I have accomplished zero. I feel so bad. I haven’t even accomplished sitting on the couch and relaxing watching a movie. What is wrong with me? I keep telling my husband daily that I want to do nothing for a day and just watch movies. I guess when having kids and it being summer time that isn’t a feasible option unfortunately. Unless they want to be lazy with you, and that rarely happens in my household.  Read more

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

So I just spent the morning painting nails with 3 lovely girls ages 8 and younger. It was quite the experience. I’m so used to boys, having 3 myself. These girls sure are giving me practice on what it will be like when my almost 2-year-old daughter will get older. Of course she needed to join in and got her lovely little toes and hands painted right along with everyone else. Now we will see how long it lasts.  Read more
