It’s been two weeks since I last blogged and I know my Grandma checks this everyday, but time is evil! At this rate, we have two months left for wedding planning and daily work just keeps piling up. Honestly, I still have clothes sitting in the laundry basket that has yet been nicely put away for about two weeks. So we have a lot to catch up on!
Before I start with my two week recap, I just want to give you an insight on my day. There is 24 hours in a day and here is a breakdown of what a day looks like for me.
1 hour to get ready for work
8 hours of work
1 hour to walk Jet, sometimes 2 because he’s a social butterfly
4 hours to spend with Dustin, conquer wedding plans, try to blog or clean the house
Total: 24 hours of exhaustion
But, the main reason why we journeyed home was because there was a bridal shower for me. I was completely shocked by the love people gave me. I was just beside myself for how many people showed up. It was truly humbling since I haven’t seen some people who came for a couple years!
Also, we checked one large thing off our wedding list. We got all the invitations assembled in a mere 4 hours with a powerhouse of a crew. It was so much fun, well some what but my dear friend Rachael came and helped even though she has her own invitation to assemble for her wedding on July 9th! Have I mentioned that I’m stoked for this summer? Well I am!
Since being home in SD, I have been my busy usual self. I think when we got home, Jet was in a state of shock because he now has to listen where as he was outside most of the time in MN. He is still in his chewing on things stage but has quickly learned a few things such as ‘kennel’ and ‘no’, which is used a lot in the house! He has a new chewing object this week. Remember those cloth chore gloves, yep, you guessed it!
Also, I have been able to bake one thing since being home. Most of our nights are spent eating boxed dinners, but healthy ones. I made a breakfast casserole and it was really good that I’m currently gorging on leftovers!
Scramble Egg Casserole
2 tbsp. butter
2 1/2 tbps. flour
2 cups milk
1 cup Velveeta cheese-shredded
1/2 tsp. salt
1/8 tsp. pepper

1 dozen eggs, beaten
4 oz. slice mushrooms
1/4 cup melted butter
2 1/4 cups soft bread crumbs
To make cheese sauce, melt butter, blend in flour and cook for one minute. Gradually stir in milk; cook until thick. Add salt, pepper, and cheese; stir until cheese melts. Set aside.
Saute ham in 3 tbsp. butter. Add eggs and cook over medium heat until eggs are set; stir in mushrooms and the cheese sauce. Spoon eggs into greased 9×13 baking dish.
Combine topping ingredients; spread evenly over egg mixture. Cover; chill overnight.
Uncover, bake at 350º for 30 minutes.
I hope you enjoy this recipe! It will be a nice thing to have for a Sunday brunch! Well I better move onto other things on my list. Remember time is evil! This weekend is Easter! I hope ya’ll have a wonderful weekend!
Until next time, I sure hope Mother Nature brings sunshine into your life!
