Preggo Slacker... and Printables

I've been slacking terribly at my blogging duties! I apologize but it is for a wonderful reason! I am happy to announce that after a lot of trying and waiting I am 9 weeks pregnant! But, along with that has come a lot of fatigue and morning/afternoon/evening sickness.. so I haven't been doing Anything lately....

I heard this quote in a lesson at church and I thought it was such a beautiful thought.  I decided to make a printable.  Here are two versions of it that you can print out and display if you would like.    Enjoy!

I'm a chunky monkey.. So why not eat one?

Had the oppourtunity to go to a friends house this week to say goodbye to her daughter and son in law who are going to Kuwait.
I wanted to make a quick and yummy treat and this is what we ended up with. This is really a no measure snack. You make it to your taste.
I started with a bowl containing 2 sticks of cream cheese softened and added some honey peanut butter ( add as much or as little as you would like. )  Mix in 1 teaspoon of vanilla  Add 1/2 cup of powdered sugar to start with and continue adding until the desired sweetness is reached.

So these little rolled goodies are made with crescent rolls.  Separate each triangle from your tube and stretch them a little.  In the center of the large end of the triangle add a dollop of the cream cheese mixture, 3 chocolate chips and 2 slices of banana.

Roll them up and pinch all of the corners and openings.  Be careful not to overfill!
Once they are all rolled up sprinkle with cinnamon and sugar and cook until golden brown.
They went fast.... and none of us waited to eat them so we ended up with burnt tongues..   They aren't the most beautiful dessert but they taste delicious...    Enjoy!

Home Improvements and Lazy Dinners

We've been busy at the homestead... I haven't completed everything that I want to ... but we're getting there.
First project was to organize and prettify the kitchen. Got these awesome labels on etsy!

 Now we have a cabinet that is very wide and very deep and made me crazy because food would disappear! 
 I ordered these awesome expandable rolling shelves and installed them.  Still working on organizing the rest of the kitchen but a great start!

 This is the biggest project this week..  I didn't do anything but I am excited nonetheless.    We have a  PATIO!!!  My father in law and his amazing crew  laid a huge stamped slab and a walkway for us.  We are getting closer and closer to having a use able backyard!

We've been busy and I wasn't feeling like doing a lot.. Including shopping.... So what to make for dinner when there are no groceries and you're a lazy bum? 
Grilled Cheese and Avocado Sandwiches!

Take 2 slices of bread and smear cream cheese on one side.  The other side slice up 1/2 of an avocado and add salt ( do it!! it brings out the natural flavor)  add one slice of cheese (any kind is fine but we only had Kraft Singles and ...  they were delicious)   spray both sides with butter and cook like a regular grilled cheese.. 
We call this  GC x 3 & A

And for a little comic relief.......
