My Christmas Surprise.

This is what my sweet husband surprised me with on Christmas. Once again he is always breaking the rules. We don’t do Christmas presents for each other and haven’t since Cameron was born. I was so surprised, he is so sweet and thoughtful. I have been wanting one for like EVER. I am not sure why we haven’t got one sooner. But because right after Christmas we had to move and then move again I haven’t had a chance to use it yet. I just got it out of the box a couple weeks ago and put it on display.  

So I have been thinking and thinking what should be the first thing I make with my mixer?  Of course I have some help from Pinterest.
No Bake Cake Batter Bites…………

Or Maybe some divinity….since I never got to it around Christmas.

Chocolate Peanut Butter Cupcakes…….

Lemon Poppy Seed Pound Cake…… 

I don’t really need a mixer for this but it just looks so yummy:)

Okay so what was the first thing you made with your mixer? I would love to hear.

Monster Jam.


Last month we took the boys to Monster Jam. They roll through town every January and this is our third year taking the kids. Well this was Easton’s first year and surprisingly he did pretty good. He managed to sit still for about half of the show and then started to get a little squirmy and antsy the last half. Both Cameron and Easton had a blast! We went with some friends who had never been before and they had a blast as well, I think they probably loved watching the boys’ reactions more than anything:) The expressions on their faces are really priceless.

What’s for Dinner?


The other night for dinner I needed something easy and something new to cook for dinner. I was at the grocery store getting some food to stock up the new place and came across this……………

So I thought I would give it a try. And to my surprise it was pretty good and even Ryan liked it. The kids not so much but that doesn’t surprise me. They are so picky these days.
I think there are 3 different types of cooking creme, I will for sure be trying out the others. I don’t know why I hadn’t noticed these sooner. I am always getting cream cheese and they are right next to eachother.

Chicken Primavera with Pasta

1.5 lb boneless chicken breasts
1 package {16oz} frozen stir-fry vegetables {broccoli, carrots, red peppers, snow peas}
1 tub {15 oz} Philadelphia Italian Cheese & Herb  Cooking Creme
4 cups of cooked fettuccine

I had just went to Costco and just bought a huge bag of broccoli, so instead of using frozen veggies I used fresh. I just steamed the broccoli and added it at the very end. I cooked the red peppers and onions {of course I add onions to everything} with the chicken but waited until chicken was just about done.

Cut up chicken into bite size pieces and cook in a nonstick skillet on medium heat, about 10 minutes.
Then add your veggies and cook another 4 minutes or until heated through, stirring occasionally.

Next add your cooking creme, cook and stir 3-4 minutes, then add your pasta {and broccoli if using the steamed fresh stuff}

It made so much we had leftovers last night. I reheated it on the stove top, added a little water until heated through, then added some more cooking creme because the pasta was a little dry. It tasted just as good.

Thank goodness for my iPhone. I haven’t downloaded our photos or our photo software on the new computer yet so it was just easier taking these pics with the phone. Hopefully I will get around to downloading our programs on the computer soon. I need to clear off our memory card to the camera.
Give it a try and ENJOY!

Moving Sucks!


Well folks we finally moved. Last week we started moving all our crap and last night was the first night here for Ryan and myself and earlier tonight we brought the boys home from my MIL’s house. There is so much to do!

There is shit everywhere all over the place.

 Just when I get one area cleaned and cleared more shit reappears and I am exhausted. I don’t recommend moving while pregnant. I am just thankful to have an awesome family to help out with the boys for the past few days, I would have never been able to get anything done with the boys around.  I know Ryan is exhausted also. He still has to work but will be able to catch up on sleep next week when he is on vacation.  And Tomorrow should be an interesting day trying to unpack and organize with Easton’s little crazy butt around.

This is what the garage looked like last night. And actually this isn’t even a good shot of all the crap everywhere. Ryan manage to get all of this cleared out. The garage is almost clean now. There is just some odd stuff laying around. I think he really wants to bring his Jeep home. It’s been in his mom’s garage for a little over a month now.

And I have to share some exciting news. Well it’s very exciting to me. Cameron finally is going poop in the toilet! I guess he finally just got it. He doesn’t complain that he is scared or it hurts. We are so happy, we can finally start to check out some preschools:)
