Happy Homemaker Monday

The weather in my neck of the woods:  Sunny, but Cool Crisp temps.  It’s gonna get cold at night thought.

Book I'm reading:  None at the moment.

What's on my TV today:  Lots of things… we are clearing out the DVR, Castle, CSI":Miami, Bear Swamp Recovery…. and later who knows…. hubby won’t tell me what’s on TV tonight!

On the menu for dinner: We still aren’t having real dinners yet, because with the Oral Surgery, Norm can’t eat most foods.  So I make whatever the kids want, and I will have whatever is laying around.

On my To Do List: At least 2 more loads of laundry.  And I would like to do something creative this evening.

New Recipe I tried or want to try soon:   I want to find a good pumpkin fudge recipe.  Still on the hunt!

In the craft basket: Oh My! What isn’t in there?? I am currently working on making paper beads.

Looking forward to this week:  Spending some tiem with the kids, with NO WHERE to go! Cheer & Football are over, and the kids have 3 days off this week… so it’s Pajama week here…. no going to the store, no appointments… NOTHING

Tips and Tricks: 

My favorite blog post this week:  Hey it’s still monday….. we will see what the week brings!

Blog Hopping (a new discovered blog you would like to share with the readers):I have an awesome blog I want to share, but can not find the link, or remember the title… I will look for it!

No words needed (favorite photo or picture, yours or others you want to share):



Lesson learned the past few days:  My kids are wonderful little people! The twins have both developed GREAT sportsmanship!

On my mind:   I need to have more tolerance of other people!

Gift Card Holder Tutorial I Found & Love


I use YouTube video tutorials a LOT! When I found this one, by one of my favorite video makers I decided it was perfect for what I needed. It seems all my friends have birthdays in a 3 week time frame. I am never quite sure what to get for some of them, so I went with gift cards. Well for this particular friend I wanted a cute gift card holder. So I searched through my favorite video makers and found this video @  Kwernerdesign

I of course did a few things a bit differently…. but here are photos of My finished project.

I also shared this posting on the Blog for a Design Team I am a member of.. SCF-DT !

My son, My Little Cook in the making

I am trying to make sure that my children are able to fend for themselves…. this includes making sure that my boys can cook more than just spaghetti, eggs, & tacos…. So just the other night I had my oldest son Norman (JR) help make dinner…. It was Meatloaf, mashed potatoes, and corn…..

I missed the chance to take a picture of him mixing together the meat, eggs, bread crumbs, & seasonings for the meatloaf itself. But here he is using the Vidalia Chop Wizard to dice potatoes.  I sliced the potatoes, he chopped!IMG00412-20110321-1629

Here he is mixing the sauce for on top of the meatloaf, nothing fancy just ketchup, mustard, and brown sugar.


Here he is painting the meatloaf as he calls it!


And our finished product…….


He had a blast cooking with me, and has been asking when he can do it again.  I am thinking maybe tonight!

My Son, I am SOOO Proud!`


My son normally sports a buzz cut.  Well for some reason he decided he didn’t want that anymore, and his MeMom took him for a hair cut and he kept it a little longer on top for a while. Then he decided to let it all just grow out!! FINALLY a couple days ago he made a deal wiht his Momma(me) if I can have ice cream for a bed time snack, you can SHAVE my hair.  DEAL!! Well then I remembered an online friend Amber…. she shaved her hair for St Baldricks… they bring awareness to childhood cancer, adn help raise money for cancer research…. I told my son, He was so Impressed by a woman being brave enough to shave his head, that we decided to let his hair grown another month, and then He will shave his head at a St Baldricks event! So if anyone could share his link, or donate a Dollar, not only would you help sick kids, but you would help my son realize there are still good people in this world!!

This is my Norman with hair…. that second one was taken on Crazy Hair day at school!
