What a perfect way to use your extra newspapers (since...

Hoping to be able to take some time next weekend to get them updated with pictures and stories! yay! I’d say this weekend other than, it’s my BIRTHDAY weekend! Which only means great...
5 Things I'm gonna Try // d|i|y edition
Since I’ve mentioned many times I’m becoming more and more interested in Do-It-Yourself projects I’ve actually formulated a list I am going to try out. I’m kind of excited about gathering supplies and making first attempts. I’m just hoping they turn out as pretty as they look in my head. I’m not gonna show pictures right now, but rather attempt to explain them...
eats // Chili Pie.
This is a recipe I stumbled across and it completely intrigued me. I wanted to try it instantly, and boy, it was delicious! It can be done various ways. You don’t have to make this “version” of chili, you can actually just make the topping and use you’re own left over chili. It’s easy to make and takes only 20 minutes! Ingredients: 1lb Italian sausage (sweet or...
Five Things I Love Most in Life // beginner's...
Well, I guess it’s that time to dive into it. I’ve debated blogging for years, started about 18 million of them and then walked away because I found it stressful. Which is ridiculous if you really think about it. When most people start blogging they do it for fun, for a craft for a hobby. I guess I felt obligated for some weird reason. Well, the good news is, I no longer feel obligated...
diy // first attempt - Candle Jars.
I’ve always been a long time reader of blogs, especially Do-It-Yourself style blogs. As well as, a long time watcher of Do-It-Yourself shows. The whole idea really inspires me to make something with the many materials I have around me and in my very own home! However, I’m not really artistic and I’ve never really been good at art and creating things. Maybe it’s patient...
review // Halloween Open House Party.
Well the weekend has come and gone, hope you all found time to relax. That being said, my weekend wasn’t horrible, but not fantastic either. See, in the grand scheme of things called life, I’m just at a point in my life where I can afford to host nice get-togethers with friends and have “open houses” where friends can just come and go as they please. Needless to say, this...
pre-eats // Halloween Open House.
Today’s pre-eats simply because, well I’m so excited I feel the need to share all of it now! None of it’s even made, or really even bought for that matter, everything’s happening tomorrow. And that would be, our Halloween Open House. We had thought about a Halloween Party, but come on, a house party on the same night as Springfield’s Halloween Pub Crawl? It’d...
eats // whole wheat banana bread.
This past weekend I managed to find some time to bake two loaves of delicious, wholesome Banana Bread. It’s a tradition after all, it’s fall, baking season has just begun (among many many other things) so I needed to find time to start my Fall Baking List To Do. It’s a good thing since the start of October I’ve managed to mark 2 of the giant growing list out of the way....
Sometimes Things Just Come UP.
I had to miss Oktoberfest this year. It stunk, I was really looking forward to it and excited about sharing pictures and fun little details. But, it didn’t happen. Oh well. There’s always next year.
your drive in the morning
I’ve officially determined that your car ride in the morning, wherever it might be to; work, school, families, an appointment, to the gym, etc., greatly determines the outcome of your morning. From what time you walk out the door, to what route you take, to traffic, weather, etc. It all has a determining factor of your day. Today, I had an awesome drive to work.

eats // old fashion pancakes - no mix.
I woke up this morning and racked my brain for breakfast. I wanted something hearty, something delicious, and yet filling for the day a head. After all, it’s best to get your energy loaded in the morning so you’re ready for a full and concentrated day of tasks, even if that’s just relaxing. So, I thought pancakes…but oh crap, I’ve got no mix, which is what the typical...

through the years.
In kindergarten or elementary school, when we were “mad” at someone we wouldn’t share our crayons with them or play with them at recess and typically forgot about the next day. In middle school, when we were “mad” at someone, we sat in clicks and laughed while pointing fingers talking bad about them at lunch and remembered it every day. In high school, when we were...
eats // homemade mac n cheese.
Probably the most purest form of comfort foods. Something we all know and love, especially in American. Whether it comes from the blue box or a white box, uses powdered cheese or cheese from a bag, no one can resist the cheesy goodness of a childhood staple, Mac N Cheese. (a home made rendition) Ingredients: 4 cups dried macaroni (basically a pound) 1/4 cups (1/2 stick or 4 TBSP) butter 1...
eats // garlic chicken spaghetti
Ok. So I make most of my dishes by taste, rather than complete recipe. Especially when I am creating something out of my mind, rather than anything I’ve seen before. Not to say it hasn’t been done before or it’s not an idea out of my distant memories, but when I create, it’s all by taste. Thus I bring you, Garlic Chicken Spaghetti! Ingreidents: 2 raw chicken breasts, no...
Coleman - Pet Bed Classic Rnd Small - →
I’m pretty sure this is what my pup needs.
dear whatever you are:
It’s been awhile. I haven’t updated anyone on anything. No recipes, no movies, nothing. I’m not really sure why. I blame most of it on the fact that I don’t have internet at home. So getting online to write is few & far between minutes. To cut the crap and get down to whatever it is I’m “venting” here, let’s just say here’s my goals,...

eats // Macaroni Casserole from my Childhood
When I was younger, my all time favorite meal was my mom’s Macaroni Casserole. Which if you don’t know what it is, it’s delicious. Apparently, as the story goes around my dinner table, the recipe made its origins when my dad was a kid, and his mother needed something to make for dinner. One night while looking in the pantry, saw these ingredients and BAM, the rest is history....
movie time // Eat Pray Love
Ok, you may have hated it because it wasn’t like the book, or because it introduces some idea that you don’t agree with, or it seemed unreal. But, it’s a true story so for one, it is totally real. Secondly, I found this film, comforting, inspiring and motivating. I completely compared myself, aligned with and understood exactly what Liz Gilbert was feeling, thinking and acting...
eats // chorizo sundried tomato & spinach rice.
recipe comes from: whole foods market In my quest to eat well, live well I found this recipe. I was intrigued my its ingredients, and more over, desperately wanted to try it. I’m not a huge “spicy” person. Call me a whimp or whatever, but I adjusted to slightly to my taste buds. Turns out, I adjusted it so well to my taste-buds, that it was just spicy enough to give me the right...

movie time // Black Swan
Sunday night I watched Black Swan. A movie I had been wanting to see since it released, and never made it to theaters. (Actually, in general I’m just bad at making it to the theater to see anything, so yes I’m thankful Netflix changed their plans around, cause now I can get DVDs by mail! yay!) Anyways, I can honestly say I was impressed, shocked, twisted and slightly confused. First...
excited for dinner
I want it to be 500pm already so I can get home. I’m making some awesome sausage & rice bake. Sounds terrible, the recipe is awesome. You’ll see tomorrow :) Yay! Or if I had internet at home, you’d see tonight, but I don’t. That might be something to look into. Plus, rearranging the living room. Can’t wait!
there's just something about wine
In the summer on the back patio In the fall when the leaves are changing In the winter snuggled up with a movie In the spring with the sun peeking through. Its calming Relaxing And wonderful.
Random Stir-Fry made on a Whim
Last night, it was clearly dinner time when I got home. I needed to make something, since previous dinner plans were ruined by an earlier hair apartment (oh Carly). I stumbled across a few items in my pantry: Frozen vegetables (asparagus stir-fry) chicken breasts rice Now, those were the only 3 things I needed in order to master mind some type of weird Home-style American Asian dish, right?...
Best Mashed Potatoes (that aren't potatoes) Ever.
I got this recipe from a friend. Tried it, delicious and healthy. I accept! 1 medium head of cauliflower - washed & cut in small florets 2-3 TBSP of milk or half & half (I used milk) 2 cloves garlic, minced to your liking (remember the more you cut garlic the stronger it becomes, so it’s your judgement) 2 TBSP butter (real butter) Put the florets in a large pot of boiling water...
