Happy Friday everyone!  I hope you all had a great week and have a fabulous weekend to come!

Today is a dinosaur theme :-) and I hope today's Friday Funny doesn't offend any of my vegetarian friends...but this is just too funny not to post!

Oven Baked Pancake

Monday, March 26, 2012

I am so excited to share some yummy goodness with you all today!

A couple months ago we took a trip to visit some family and stayed with my amazing cousin Karen.  She is one of those moms that puts other moms to shame.  Not only is her house gorgeous and filled with so many unique personal touches, it is also one of those places where you just feel right at home.  It was almost as good as being at Disneyland for the kids (she even has a pull down attic space just for her kids to play)!  You might remember her from this Christmas post in which I talked about the most amazing Toffee ever created!! 

She made us a breakfast that was to die for and I have not been able to get it out of my head!  She has been kind enough to share her Aunt Joanie's recipe with me and to spread to my amazing readers!!

Oven Baked Pancake
6 T. butter
6 eggs
1 1/2 cup flour
3/4 t. salt
2 1/4 cup milk

Preheat the oven to 450 degrees. In a 9 x 13 baking dish, in the oven, melt the butter. While the butter is melting (keep your eye on it!), blend all the other ingredients together in a blender. When the butter is melted, carefully pour the batter into the pan. Bake for 15 minutes, then decrease the heat to 400 (without removing the pancake) and bake for 10 minutes more. Serves about 5 hungry kids! :)

My girls were so excited to make this because they always talk about how much they liked "Aunt Karen's" breakfast and that we never have anything that good...

Now how easy is that!  Doesn't this look amazing!!

I topped mine with powdered sugar and berries...I believe this is what will be served in Heaven ;-)

This post will be featured at Mom's Fun Money this week.

I will be linking up to the following parties...

Happy Friday!!

Today's Friday Funny rings so true in my life, I just had to post it...


I hope you all have a fabulous day and great weekend! 

I'm Baaaack!

Wednesday, March 21, 2012

It is getting a little ridiculous that I keep saying "sorry" for not doing any new projects lately!  I am having serious withdrawals!  I haven't even linked up to any parties in almost 3 weeks!!! 

I promise I haven't given up on my blog, I have just been trying to get adjusted lately.  Life has been so busy with my new full time job, catching up on paperwork for our electrical business and having family in town. 

I will admit that it is so much harder for me to be creative when the weather is crummy...what is that about?  I am so ready for nice, sunny weather and it is making me a little melancholy.  That doesn't even include the fact that my house is getting taken over by ants!  I came home from work yesterday to find my floors covered in ants!  I raided everything and then had to mop last night and today I came home and my kitchen sinks were covered so I cried and threw a fit calmly raided and cleaned again.  The worst part is that I don't have any food, juice or anything out!  It is making me crazy!!  Sorry for my little tangent, back on track...

I  have been trying to catch up on my HubPages lately though because I have been seriously behind there too :(

If you have never heard of HubPages, you should definitely check it out!  It is basically a free site to write anything of your choice (similar to a blog) but it focuses on tutorials and ...

The biggest difference with hubpages is that you have much higher search rating than you would with a blog.  I tend to write my blog to share my projects and things I find interesting with all of you and I use my hubpages to link my in depth tutorials for those of you who want a step by step guide.  I realize that you may not all want to see how I sanded my furniture or care about some of the other things I share in my hubs; you just want to see the end result.  It is also a nice resource for those doing a google search on how to "paint a hutch," for example, and find the step by step instructions.

I have had my HubPage link on my side bar since the beginning of my blog and now you know what it is.

If you have any questions feel free to ask, it is a great site and quite addicting, just like blogs.  There is a bit of a learning curve, but it is so worth it and you can actually make a little side money from your posts.

Here are some of my most recent posts...
I really hope to be more on top of things now with my blog and I promise to have some new projects to show soon.

Springtime Furniture Favorites!

Wednesday, March 14, 2012

I am dying for Spring to get here and have been gravitating towards some springtime looks when it comes to my favorite furniture finds right now.  Please click on the links below each picture to be taken to the source.

How cute is this pallet table!?  The colors make me so happy!

These crate seats would be perfect in an outdoor patio for some extra seating.

Last, but definitely not least...I love this mint dresser that Liz did!  It is such a fresh, perfect color!

How about you all?  Are you ready for Spring yet?  Any colors or trends that you are loving for the upcoming season?

Friday Funny #4

Thursday, March 8, 2012

Hello friends!  I am so sorry that this week has been a little slow in my blogland...With this being my first week at my new job I am really trying to get back into my routine and not stress out too much ;-)

I want to make sure that this blog stays fun for me and is not a chore.  I only write a post when I feel I have something worth saying or sharing.  I never want to write a post because it has been too long and I rush to get a half hearted post to you all. 

I am trying to make sure that my work and my family comes first and that can be a challenge some times when I am really itching to do a project!

With that being said, I am really dying to catch up on some things to share with you this weekend. 

In the mean time I hope you enjoy today's Friday Funny...

Is it Spring Yet!!??

Monday, March 5, 2012

We have had fabulous weather here this weekend and it has given me Spring fever! 

Is anyone else there with me yet? 

I am dying to makeover our back yard this summer and have been scouring Pinterest for some inspiration.

I thought I would share so you can all drool with me :-)

This walkway is just lovely!  I love when the most simple things are the most beautiful!

How fun are these tire planters?!  I would never have thought to paint tires like that!

How brilliant to use an old dresser as a planter!  I would change a few things about this look, but such a brilliant idea!

So how about you all?  Do you have your gardening gloves out yet?

Friday Funny #3

Thursday, March 1, 2012

Yikes I am back to working a full time job starting today!  I am sad to not have the time at home right now, but so excited thinking about getting to our goals of being financially free!!

However, in dealing with the craziness of life this week , I definitely need today's Friday Funny!

Since both of these seem to apply so well to life I just had to pick them both! 

I hope all of you have a fabulous weekend!!
