Chicken Nuggets = Life

You know how I have mentioned before how I eat like a two-year old? Well it’s true. If there is ever an option for “adult food” or chicken nuggets I am going to go for chicken nuggets. I just love them, I can’t help it! For years I have bought frozen nuggets and kept them…

Pinehurst Projects

  In July Danny and I bought our first house. This house is seriously 98% exactly what I wanted for our first home. We got SO lucky! We had a wonderful home buying experience and are thoroughly enjoying being homeowners. My favorite part so far has been fixing up that 2% that I wasn’t super…

Pork, Pork, Porkie, Pork, Pork.

Growing up I HATED pork. I never wanted to go to a BBQ or eat any of that non-sense. In my adult life however, I LOVE pork. Isn’t it funny how our taste buds change the older we get? I still feel like I have the appetite of a two-year old but hey I am…

tomato soup for days

I go home for lunch every day. I hate eating out for lunch. The food is meh, it’s expensive and it’s so not good for you. If I eat fast food within a few hours I can feel my stomach start to freak out. Finding things to quickly eat on my lunch break however can…

be.present

Why is it so hard to slow down? Be content and enjoy where you are at in life? Why are we always thinking about tomorrow, next month or next year? To be present is my goal for 2016. I am practicing putting down the phone, getting off Facebook, stop thinking about tomorrow (in a worrisome…

Hike for Hamburgers

It was GORGOEOUS here on Saturday. I love winter, don’t get me wrong but this winter has just down right stunk in Missouri. I want this blizzard that everyone else is getting!  It has stayed so nice now I just want it to be summer so I can be outside and at the lake, whatever…

The Baked Ziti Treaty

Why is pasta so good? I can honestly say I could eat pasta for dinner every day and I’d be fine with it. I’d be the size of Texas but whatever. On Wednesday night this week we had a baked ziti, recipe by the lovely Ree Drummond. I had some free time on Sunday so…
