Recipe Blog Hop


The time has come that I finally look into the eye of the beast and tackle it.

I can't cook. I hate to cook. It is boring.

I do enjoy home cooked food though and unfortunately my amazing chef of a husband can't just be my full time stay at home husband. Dang it I need to make that happen ASAP.

This is what I need and I propose. All my readers and friends are going to help me play a game. I want you to blog about your easiest, most delicious, and preferably crock pot friendly meal and then send me the link.  I don't want a pinterest recommendation- I want your recommendation complete with pictures and testimonials. Then I will try it out and we can laugh and how bad my turns out.

Good idea?  Today this is what I am trying, found it on pinterest and don't know if it will turn out. It is in the crockpot as I type.

Crockpot! 1 cup pineapple juice 1/2 cup packed brown sugar 1/3 cup light soy sauce 2 pounds chicken breast tenderloins. Cook on low 6-8 hrs.

I am promised this is supposed to taste great and fall apart in my mouth.  I will let you know.  Please post your recipe on your blog and then post it in the comments so we can all try your recipe out :)

It is True

So I guess swearing up and down that kiddos aren't in your future does make for a confused bunch of friends when we announce that we are having a baby.  The rumors are true, I am not just getting fat, which is quite a relief:)

A couple of people have asked if we are having a boy based on the photo announcement you can see here, but I assure you that currently we don't know.  The shoes in the picture as suppossed to be black, I was looking for a gender neutral color, but I think the exposure of the photo made them look blue.  (PS. can you guess how long it took for the dogs to actually lay next to each other and the shoes to cooperate? A very long time, the shoes were the worst :)

Alas, when we know the gender, you guys will know.  I guess we can take bets on what it will be.  Which gender will Leah and Paul tolerate better?

On to more pressing issues,  I need help finding a rug for my family room.  Here is a photo of the room. The walls are orange, yes orange.  I find it quite fun but am having problems deciding on a rug that is durable, easy to clean and inexpensive.  Please help.

Give me ideas or send me links of rugs you think would look good.

Drum Roll....

Paul and I are both a little terrified and a lot excited.  The land of the kiddos here we come.
