Masterpieces Update!

Yay! We finally finished our "All about Parker" wall. well....sort of. I found the clips I wanted at Target but they only had 6 of them when I need 8. So I am waiting for them to order more. But here is what we have so far. I am so proud of this because I am so proud of our little girl :)

Blessed Day!

Today was amazing!! My 14 year old niece was baptized today!
Of course ever baptism is special but knowing my niece's background this one seemed extra special ;)
I am so proud of her and will forever remember this day. I am so glad my whole family was able to be there even Landon, Cara, Laney & Kip joined :)

It's Friday, my entire hallway is empty, nothing due, can't online shop because I am saving for Canton so I thought I would fill out a questionnaire. Yes, an old school Myspace thing that we used to fill out constantly...or maybe that was just me. Anyways, here we go...

1. What is your dream job?

I would love to own my own clothing/jewelry boutique. I have a husband that is wonderful with numbers so we set it all up one time and he really pushed me to do it but I love contentment with my job. Its safe and secure so I stay where I am at.

2. What is your favorite fragrance for Winter?
Honestly I don't change my scent for the different seasons. I'm picky about my perfumes, certain smells bother me and give me headaches so I have to choose carefully.

3. How do you take your tea/coffee?
I don't drink coffee & SWEET tea all the way.

4. What is your most important beauty secret?
My secret is I break out so easily, it's not so much a good secret. I use Proactive everyday and it's the only thing that keeps it under control but I still have horrible flareups.

5. If you had an all expenses paid vacation, where would you go?
I would go to Bora Bora! Abosulutely stunning but very $$$. I love beaches and my husband loves site seeing and historic things. So I would definitely have to win on this one :))

6. If a genie popped up in your lap right now and offered you three wishes, what would you ask for?
1. World peace, sounds cheesy but honestly true
2. that my daughter will grow up fearing our God & be kind & respectful to everyone.
3. Cure for cancer.

7. If you could only have breakfast, lunch, dinner or desert foods for the rest of your life, what would you pick?
DESSERT! Addiction

8. If you were Hello Kitty what color hair bow would you wear?
Wow, random...White

9. What is your biggest makeup pet peeve?
foundation lines but I am sure I am guilty of them too just harder to see them on yourself.

10. If you could wear only one piece of jewellery for the rest of your life, what would it be?
My wedding ring :)

11. What one talent do you wish you had?
I wish I could sing. My friend Ashley once said she wanted to be able to do backflips everywhere she went..haha..gotta love her!

12. Which product will you continue to purchase?
Young Blood make-up, love it!

13. If you could look into the future, would you? And what would you like to know?
Not sure. But if I did it would be to see if I would get pregnant again or adopt :) Big question for us right now!

14. Who is your biggest celebrity crush?
George Straight...always will be no matter how old he gets!

15. What made you start a blog?
I have so much time at work (not complaining) that I have to find fun things to entertain myself!

I am addicted to pinterest. They have a million and one cute ideas. I will never even attempt 97% of them but it's nice to dream. This is one I am sure you have all seen but I have loved it since I first saw it. And I have seen a million people repin from other people's pins. I have a huge blank wall in my kitchen. I recently sold the decorations that were on that wall in our garage sale this past weekend. So my husband and I are going to make this for our wall. I already ordered the "Masterpieces" sign and should be sitting in my mailbox today. Parker comes home everyday from school and from church with new artwork. I currently have them covering my fridge which eventually get yanked off by her and torn or get dirty. So what better way to display them than by putting them where we spend most of our time at home! The Kitchen! Super easy project because we all know I LOVE easy :) I will post the instructions with the final picture as well.

 When she gets a little older I hope it shows her how much we adore all her art work that she brings home. I will show you a finished product tomorrow!

I am off to visit little Landry Lamb :)

Recipe {Vegetable Pizza}

My good friend Shelley hosted a 31 gifts party last night. I was excited to go for the cute things to buy but I was really excited about the food. Shelley always has fun food ideas, she is a great cook. One appetizer she had was a vegetable pizza. Super super easy and very good. Even Parker loved it!

Vegetable Pizza

Any size of pizza crust you want
Vegetables (she chose squash, zuccini and red bell peppers)
grated cheese (amount depends on the size of your crust and how well you like cheese)

Cut up your vegetables and spread them out on your crust
Layer your cheese on top
Put in the oven at 350 until cheese is melted
Cut into squares or slices!

This is great if you are hosting a party and need an extra side dish. Or if you are like me and have to sneak in vegetables to your child :)

Thanks to my amazing friends & family that came!!! After everyone's orders at the party and online we sold over $1000! I was able to get $300 worth of free jewelry as well as (4) 1/2 off items!!!
Everyone should host a party just to get the amazing benefits!!

Recipe {Hidden Valley Ranch Chicken}

We had a girls night last night and my friend Shelley made this for us. She found it on the back of the Ranch Dressing bottle. It is so easy & CRAZY good!

Hidden Valley Ranch Chicken

4 small boneless chicken breast
1/2 cup Ranch dressing
2 Tablespoons of flour
1/2 cup of cheddar cheese

Rinse and pat dry chicken breasts. In a bowl combine the ranch dressing and flour. Dip each chicken breast in the mixture until well coated. Transfer to baking dish, cover chicken with grated cheese, and bake at 350 for 35 minutes or until cooked through.
You won't be disappointed!
