We just bought this last night and HIGHLY recommend.

Memory Hoarder

I just realized that I have 41 pages of typed up text messages.

I feel slightly accomplished.

And at the same time I feel embarrassed.

Is this bad?

Domestic

We got several Crock Pots for our wedding. So, we had to choose one and return the rest.

I wanted the red one (that's kinda the theme I'm going for in the kitchen), but Scott insisted on the biggest one. That's right- the 6 quarter (or something like that).

Haha, it's not exactly meant to cook for 2, but hey! It'll last us a while and will be handy when the kiddies come. And Scott's into being economic like that.

So last week we finally tested it out with a yummy chicken recipe that I'll share below. Btw, it was dee-lish. The chicken fell apart and we could hardly fork it! Dinner was magnificent!

However. Cleaning the Beast (good nickname, yes?)? Ohmynightmare.

We are fortunate enough to have to hand wash all of our dishes and I don't think I'd put a Crock Pot in the dishwasher anyway.

I guess that's how my Monday's going :)



Zesty Creamy Crock Pot Chicken

1 (8 oz.) pkg. cream cheese
2 cans cream of chicken soup
1 env. Zesty Italian dressing mix
1/3 c. water (I did a little more)
4 to 5 uncooked chicken breasts

Combine water and dry salad dressing mix and pour over chicken. Cook on LOW in crock pot for 3 hours. Mix soup and cream cheese together; pour over chicken and cook for another hour longer until sauce is smooth and creamy. Serve over rice or pasta.

My recommendation: mix the cream cheese and soup in a pot on the stove and make it creamy there first. I still had cream cheese chunks when I made it.

Happy cooking {and cleaning}!


P.S. Happy 3 month anniversary to us!!

Just a craftin'

After looking over some DIY projects for inspiration, I made... this!

I used Poladroid for the pictures, had the photobooth strips leftover from a wedding expo, and hung them with clothespins! I like it. And I almost, kinda, sorta made it up!

Happy Belated Birthday, Dr. Seuss!

You know what? I miss reading Dr. Seuss books. I think I'll start collecting them now so I can have the ULTIMATE collection for my kiddies!

Anyway, in honor of Seussy, here are some of my favy quotes:


When you think things are bad,

when you feel sour and blue,

when you start to get mad

you should do what I do!


Just tell yourself, Duckie,

you’re really quite lucky!

Some people are much more…

oh, ever so much more…

oh, muchly much-much more

unlucky than you!

-Dr. Seuss

"A book is a gift you can open again and again."

Alright, so I kinda suck at blog templates and designing. But, this is an improvement. Gotta love the pre-made freebies. Maybe one of these days I'll consider saving up to have someone redesign it for me.

Guess what I'm reading? The Hunger Games! I've never read it and because it was only $5 on the Kindle, why not?! I'm loving it by the way. It's sick and twisted and I can't stop! Can't stop meaning that I definitely just finished the first and I'm in the second right now. Next on my list is...

I've heard some great things about it and can't wait to get started. But I guess I shouldn't get ahead of myself- I still have a whole trilogy to read!

Do you know what one of my favorite things about Christmas is?

Do you know what my favorite thing about after Christmas is? Leftover slices!
