If You Need A Laugh

This is my daughter....

I did not tell her to shove her little finger up her nose... she did that all on her own. We are so lady like around these parts. (please excuse the nasty bathtub).

Merry Pumpkin Season

Have you ever heard of the book Spookley the Square Pumpkin? It is super cute and has a good moral to the story. Anyway, we have the book, movie (book is a hundred times usual), and toy and it has basically filled Addi's world this October. Anytime we see a pumpkin she sings "Spookley the square pumpkin!". I knew she was going to die and go to heaven when we hit the pumpkin patch this season.  As soon as we pulled into the parking lot at Dewberry Farm and she saw all those orange pumpkins sitting out in the field "SPOOKLEY!" was being shouted from the back seat.

 Houston is still pretty warm in October and this year has been even more so. I think it was like 88 degrees the day we went. Yeah, there are no cute sweaters and boots in these parts, but we sweated it out and had a great time.

How cute is a skirt with pockets??

... and if these pictures aren't cute enough, check out these pictures from last year :)

Makes my heart melt and ache at the same time. That was only one year ago and look how much she has grown and changed. She isn't a baby anymore. Next year at this time Brandly will be one and I'll be saying the same thing about him. Oh my...sigh.

Some New Favorites

Pinterest has rocked my world! I LOVE it and spend way to much time on it. If you haven't set up a board yet it is a MUST!! However, be warned that it is highly addictive and could take up much of your time :)
I have so many DIY crafts I want to do and recipes to try. My weekly menu has gone from blah to fabulous... you have no idea how bad of a makeover my list of meals needed. I just wanted to share the things we have tried thus far.
Buttermilk Blueberry Breakfast Cake
This was AMAZING!! It had a hint of lemon which just put it over the top on yummy goodness. It's a must try. I will be making it for the rest of my life. If you ever stay at my house, expect to have this for breakfast:)

This was very yummy. My only suggestions is to make sure you let the onions get soft because I kept biting into crunchy onions. I also wasn't crazy about the amount of spinach in this, but I am not too crazy about the texture. Overall, it was really really good and I will totally make it again.

I think Andy liked this recipe way more then I did, but I still thought it was good. I just thought the whole ranch packet was a little much. Also, we didn't get to make the potatoes because when I got the bag out there were little white worms coming out of them. This is the second time this is happened... I don't know if it's Wal-Mart or me that causes this, but it makes me mad.

                  Now this was delish!! I loved it! I have no complaints or suggestions... oh so good!

Ok, I don't know how she made hers look so pretty, but mine was not a neat as this. It was good though, but I think next time I will make it with ham and use cheddar cheese instead of the kind she had listed.

Pizza Muffins
Ok, I had put these on the menu, but forgot to get pepperoni :( We tried hamburger which was not so good. I can suggest however to do half of the Italian seasoning that is suggested (it was overwhelming) and stick with pepperoni because I think it would be much better.

So, that's it my friends.... look me up on Pinterest ;)
