We're alive...

Ive been on a bit of a blogging break lately.  We have had some busy weekend followed by a few out of town trips, so things have been crazy around here.


We have gotten started on some major projects though...one being our yard.  it was overrun with weeds and junk. so we killed it.  the whole dang thing and are starting from scratch.  



After pics soon!!


Also, I finally got started on the front door.  Only took a year.  hopefully it doesnt take me a year to finish. Stripping the paint off this mofo is a nightmare.



After pics coming soon!!

We have also been working on other various landscaping projects around the house...this guy keeps getting in my way though...


Its been nuts around here lately but we have a few down weekends coming up so hopefully we can get some of these projects finished.

oh and look who's potty trained!!


Happy Wednesday!

spinach meatloaf

ok - we are back with another edition of I stick spinach in something and feed it to my kid.
you all remember the spinach jello.  a semi hit around here. we going meatloaf this time.


I dont really use recipes or exact measurements or timers or anything like that with my meals.  i just wing it and see how things go, so i dont have an actual recipe, but you can use any meatloaf recipe. 

here are the ingredients i used. 



The key is to grind up the spinach as much as possible. Food processors work the best.


once everything is ready, i used little dishes to cook them, so i can freeze sections and use at later dates.


and after



inspecting...


full mouth...works for me.

Friday Ramblings

Things have been quiet around here lately. the reason...i got hooked on reading the 50 shades of grey trilogy this past week and really havent done anything else. this sums up my feelings on the books.



I do have a few projects coming up around the house.  one involves this bad boy.




Mr H sanded it for me last week while i was holed up in my room with my kindle.  hes sweet like that.

Another project involves my Monica closet.

clutter city


the mr.  built some shelves in here for me from an old boxpsring he tore apart and scrap wood he had laying around the garage. he is resourceful like that. now i have to paint and decorate.  yes im decorating a closet.  i have issues, clearly.

i also am getting started on the front door.  FINALLY.

and i have to give a paint job to the side porch to match the front porch.  oh and Mr H wants to screen it in!!  he is handy like that.



and the rest of the projects unfortunately involve yard work and grass seed and weed killer and landscaping junk.  things i hate. lame

Happy Friday! have a relaxing weekend....
