April Updates

     In the time I’m not blogging, I’m living life…or sitting on the couch.  For instance, today, Keith and I took his favorite new toy out to the lake and went fishing.  Correction: he went fishing, and I went sitting in the sun.

     Keith was a little (a lot) disappointed by the wind and lack of biting fish.  I, on the other hand, was quite thrilled with the sun…as evidenced by my super cute new tan lines.  I’m considering this little trip my “school is almost over, and I’m really tired, but I can make it to the end of the year” trip.
     We needed a little break this weekend after the heavy sort of week we had.  You know I usually keep things pretty light over here on le blog, but we’ve had a rough week.  My sweet Nana passed away this Tuesday, and even though we have incredible peace to know that she is in Heaven, it’s still pretty sad here.  To say she was a character is an incredibly ridiculous understatement, and we are definitely missing her.  I am very thankful that our God answers prayers and that we do not have a “peace allowance” that can be used up.  When we ask, He answers.  Period.  Isn’t that incredible?  My  mind has been on Heaven a lot lately, and I have had such joy thinking of  what God has in store for us.

     In other news…less than 30 days left of the school year.  What?!  I can’t believe it.  Cannot.  Believe. It.  Am I the only one just about to burst ready for some warm weather and relaxation?  I can almost hear summer calling my name.

15 Minutes to Domestic

     I Instagrammed a picture of my dinner the other night (I know; I’m one of those people.) and then posted a picture in my last post, and some sweet friend was kind enough to ask for the recipe.  Not to insult your intelligence or anything, but I made this recipe up, and if you can’t do it then you may not know how to work an oven.  Ready?

Pizza Puffs

Get ready for the easiest recipe you’ve ever seen.

Stuff you need:
Crescent rolls
Pepperoni
Mozzarella cheese
Garlic powder
Italian seasoning

What to do:
1.  Preheat your oven to whatever is on the can of crescent rolls.

2.  Pop open the can and take every roll apart.

3.  On the fat part of each roll arrange 3-4 pepperonis (or whatever looks good to you…How fun would the mini ones be?!).

4.  On top of that arrange a little mountain of mozzarella cheese.

5.  Starting on the wide end, roll these up as you normally would.  You may have to fold in the ends (burrito-style) to keep the cheese from falling out everywhere.

6.  Lightly sprinkle with garlic powder and Italian seasoning and bake according to package instructions.

     Didn’t I tell you the truth?  So easy.  Dip in marinara sauce and enjoy!  From beginning to end this took maybe 15 minutes.  You could probably even brown some sausage, drain, and put that inside, but that would have ruined my fifteen minutes to domestic hashtag (and I didn’t have sausage…I had pepperoni and cheese).

     Aaaaaand now that I’ve stared at these, I’m starving.  I have no idea what I’m having tonight, but if I end up  making up another recipe, I’ll definitely share it with you!

Finish This…

     I’ve been seeing this fun little linky floating around for a few weeks now, so as per usual, I’m jumping on the bandwagon a little late.  Oh well…

finishthis-small

I know this is weird, but…when I watch TV, I like to keep the volume set to an even or benchmark number.  It’s almost a little frustrating when it’s on 7 or 13 or something else terrible like that.  I should probably work on what I let frustrate me.

When I stop at a stoplight I…usually look around to see if I know anybody around me.  Nosy much?  I don’t wave or anything; I’m just curious as to who’s out and about.

My guilty pleasure is…anything on Lifetime…and Gypsy Sisters…and mindless television in general.

My favorite way to unwind…see the aforementioned mindless television.  Also, a hot, hot shower with hopefully unlimited hot water.

     Reviewing that list makes me sound kind of lazy (hey, it’s spring break, so I have an excuse)…if you need me for the rest of the day, I’ll be cleaning house and pretending to be active. 

     In unrelated news, I made these fun little pizza puffs for dinner the other night, and could have eaten about 20.  So good and so, so easy.  Sometimes it’s nice to be domestic (especially if it only takes 15 minutes).
