I have several friends on social media sites that dedicate their Thursday to “Throwback Thursday”. I haven’t been quite the one to figure out this phenomenon because usually when Thursday comes, I’m looking forward to the weekend. The meaning of … Continue reading
Obviously my life has not change one bit, always on the go. It feels like I can barely squeeze in time to watch a few of my favorite television shows. Currently, I have turned into a bookworm by picking up … Continue reading

I can’t believe how quickly Monday vanished yesterday! Usually, Mondays are the devil. They tend to drag on, assignments pile the work desk, and it just they just seem never ending. Since I forgot to recap on a fun weekend … Continue reading
We had a jam-packed weekend that I had to take one day to recover. At my age (which I feel old some days), the weekends don’t seem long enough to possibly get everything accomplished. Since Dustin and I don’t make … Continue reading
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
2 cups cubed ham
2 tbsp. melted butter
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!
Happy Hump Day everyone! We are one more day closer to the weekend and we one day closer to packing up the car and heading east to my native state, Minnesota! I’m very excited about this weekend in particular because my aunts and my mom’s wonderful herd of girlfriends are throwing a bridal shower for me, AND I get to see all my family and friends. That’s even including my soon to be family members!
Now on the eve before we leave, it’s usually a mad house. I’m doing laundry, cleaning the house and car, and packing all our belongings at the last minute. Usually I make a list of what needs to be done all the way down to how many undergarments we need to pack. Yes, I’m like that because we don’t need any necessary trips to Walmart!
However this trip is going to be the most interesting because we have our beloved dog, Jet. He is going to experience his first long, enduring trip to Minnesota. I’m just hoping for the best–that he’s going to sleep the whole time!
So here’s my wonderful to-do list for tonight:
1. Sit and relax for 1 minute after work.
2. Sort out the clothes I would like to wear.
3. Eat the left overs.
4. Make a few phone calls.
5. Pack my 7 outfits and pairs of shoes. I’m just kidding. Dustin thinks I pack way too much clothes and shoes for the 3 days that we visit.
6. Give Jet a bath, clean out his ears, and pack his belongings. What a high maintenance dog!
7. Go to sleep, maybe!
Well I better get going! Time is wasting away! And for grandma and grandpa, I know you check everyday, we can’t wait to see you! Lunch on Friday? I shall be back after the weekend! Enjoy the sun and beautiful weather that Mother Nature has blessed us with these couple days! Next thing on my mind, gardening!
