Egg biscuits

I haven't posted in a while because, well, I keep getting side tracked. which is the story of my life, I will start to clean out the fridge, the start to do dishes, then stop and put a shirt in the laundry and start to wash a load, then see toys in the way......then nothing is actually done, everything is just half started:/ I have really good intentions though:) My hubs on the other hand has a day off and the bathroom is spotless! I love that man!!! :).

Back to the blog at hand, this excerpt is about these delicious egg biscuits! I LOVE breakfast food, it's my favorite meal. Probably because breakfast means bacon, and I LOVE bacon!!!! I started making egg muffins a few years ago which is basically scrambled eggs in a muffin tin. Well, I started usig biscuits that come in the four pack, it's ridiculously cheap, like 4 10-packs for $1.88 for buttermilk biscuits. Well, here's the recipe, melt a few Tbsp of butter, mix 5 eggs, add cheese, bacon, and whatever else you want. ( onions, sausage, peppers, etc...) break 1 can of biscuits into 4 pieces each and add to mixture. Stir mixture together and place evenly in greased muffin tin. Bake at 400• for 10-15 minutes or until browning.
Eat with fruit, coffee, and enjoy!!!!
What are your favorite breakfast recipes?

Mouse paint

Last time we went to the library we picked up the book 'Mouse paint' by Ellen Stoll Walsh. If you've never read this book I highly recommend it, especially if you have a little one. Our daughter is all about colors and I started teaching her about mixing colors and what happens when you mix certain colors. This book is all about three little mice that find paint and jump inside and dance in puddles to mix colors. Well, I decided to make a little project to go along with this book. My little one isn't always a big fan of having paint on her hands and definetely not her feet, so I put the primary colors in a ziploc bag so we could mix, discover, and stay clean.:) I will admit, my little one wasnt overly excited about this but it did work well.

Do you have any fun color mixing ideas or experiments?

DIY mini flower vase

I pretty much love anything "mini," mini candy bars, mini appetizers, and mini wine bottles:) I bought some pinot grigio in the little 4 packs not too long ago. The bad things about "mini" things is they tend to be gone very quickly, and this rang true for these delicious bottles of wine. I love the little bottles, and I couldn't just throw them away so I washed them out, cleaned the paper off and got out some paint supplies. I started to get really creative and painted a Monet scene on the first but didnt think I should try to remake the Mona Lisa. I think these would be so cute as a gift for a friend or mom with a wild flower inside. I painted these with acrylic paint and will be putting a clear coat over them when I am finished. The white one still needs to be painted, but I'm waiting to get inspired. (starry night perhaps?)

What do you think? I would love to hear comments or questions:)

Productivity = happiness

So I have been feeling very unproductive this summer, sleeping in, playing ALL day, choosing whether or not to shower (I almost always do :) reading, and soaking up the suns rays. Well, we've had some gloomy days this week and I decided today to get some things marked off my list. I straightened/cleaned my crafting room, did some sewing, swept the floors, put all of lylas toys away, laundry, dishes, cooked, played guitar....wait that wasnt on the list of to-do, but little miss helpful wanted to play with it. I forgot that I dont know how to play it but did have a jam session with lyla and her barbie guitar. "I'm a barbie a barbie in's fantastic..." I have just song bombed you all, and I'm not even going to apologize:)

Back to being productive, why do I procrastinate? It's so nice to get things done, even if there are more dishes in the sink, more laundry to do, and more toys to pick up.... But for now, I'm happy that I did get productive today...even if I havent showered yet :)

Let's all hope the weather is nice for our pool, zoo, 4th of July cookout, and family visiting coming up this week. I will try to blog about it all!

Here's a preview of the dress I made for my daughter, hopefully she will want to wear it on Wednesday! I still have some altering to do:) and also a pic of us having our jam session;)

What are your secrets to staying productive?

I would love to hear any questions or comments that you may have...
