This recipe comes to you today from my brothers…Kent and Kendall!! They treated my Mom and I to this rare delicacy Saturday night.

Blackened Pizza

-get home sometime after midnight
-preheat the oven to 500 degrees
-arrange a frozen pizza and a handful of pizza rolls on a round stone and stick it the oven

Ok here comes the tricky part…

-go to bed

After an hour or two your mom and sister will wake up to the aroma that has filled the house. And this is what they will find…


Yummy ūüôā

Happy Monday!!!


My Own Kinda Paradise

Posted on


“Got the blue sky breeze and it don’t seem fair
Only worry in the world is the tide gonna reach my chair
Sunrise there’s a fire in the sky
Never been so happy
Never felt so high
And I think I might have found me my own kind of paradise”

I hope everyone had a Happy Easter! I will be back to blogging this week…hopefully you all haven’t given up on me! Today I will leave you with one picture from¬†my Easter…

Happy Monday!



Rain Rain Go Away…

Posted on

Happy Monday! I hope everyone had a great weekend. Russell and I had planned a trip to the Biltmore Estate but decided to reschedule because of the nasty rain and cold. We enjoy walking around the estate and want to be able to enjoy it! I think we will attempt the trip again in a couple of weeks.

I recently downloaded the Project 365¬†app on my Iphone. It’s an app were you take a¬†photo a day for a year. I think it’s neat because it stores your¬†photos in a calendar form and you can look back on it to see what you were doing each day. Here are my photos for the weekend…

Friday…giant iced coffee from Dunkin Donuts. I was wound up for hours!

Saturday…rainy day in bed with my Kindle and a mug of coffee, perfection.

Sunday…delicious homecooked meal with family

My weekend in snapshots! Let me know if you guys like this post, maybe I will start featuring more of my Project 365 photos.

I hope everyone has a great Monday!


Weekend Recap…a day late!

Posted on

So let me start off by saying that I have a really good excuse for being a day late with my weekend recap….Sunday night at around 10:30¬†we discovered that water was leaking from the ceiling into¬†two rooms in our house. We had a burst pipe and since it was 10:30 on Sunday night there was nothing we could do but turn off the water and go to sleep. That meant no water yesterday morning!!¬†No shower, AHH! I am a morning shower person all the way…if I¬†don’t¬†get my morning shower I just feel off the whole day.¬†So that was me yesterday, off! I’m glad to report that the pipe was replaced and I had my shower this morning and all is well! Side note….the pipe was burst because sqirrels had gotten into the attic somehow and chewed it…little boogers!

Ok, onto my weekend…it was great! Me and Russell went to the bookstore and movies on Friday night, one of my all time favorite dates! We saw The Adjustment Bureau and it was excellent. Saturday I had lunch with two of my most favorite people, and did a little shopping (always fun!). Sunday was a GORGEOUS day! We spent the entire day outside… we played baseball, read, and went on a little nature walk to the creek near my house. We used to go back there all the time when I was little and it brought back so many memories!

Some of you may remember a picture of this bird feeder covered in snow….now here it is basking in the sunshine!

I think this tree is so pretty….the opening to the left is the start of the creek trail.

Russ was prepared to save me from any wild animals ūüôā

How cool is this tree…

We came upon this old car in the woods…

I seriously felt like a kid again, walking around in the woods, exploring! So much fun…

Hopefully you all had great weekends and were able to enjoy the beautiful weather!

Happy Tuesday!
