Disaster zone + food blog

I havent done a food blog in FOREVER! So I decided to add the eats to the blog, along with the daily activities

Breakfast: yogurt, cereal, and banana

I than ran to target (twice), home depot, and I distroyed andrews room

Ok first thing first, I went to target and got another shelf to fit andrew books by his desks

Then I realized it was brown and his desk is black- thats a no go. So I went back and got the tan color. (the white wasnt on sale- I mean really target?)

But at least the books fit! now the question is do I spray paint it black?

I then destroyed Andrew’s room. I went through all his clothes, and bought a rod to go length wise in andrews closet.

Basically to fit more clothes!

The finished closet!

Ah. The room looks a million times better.

I had to get everything cleaned up before lunch. Which was boring. Turkey sandwich and a peach

and then a MILLION handfuls of this

I think thats why my stomach was feeling gross for dinner. But andrew asked for toasted ravs, and it was fast and easy.

So toasted ravs it is!

At home depot, I also picked up paint samples….

sooooo I got these becasue Im going to paint the cabinets again. I know. I know. I said I never would.

But they look yellow with the yellow walls and counter top. So stay tuned!

I also got some pretty ripe bananas from my parents, because they know I love to bake!

It was delicious banana bread!

Recipe will be here tomorrow!

After homework, dinner, and banana bread, it was time for andrew’s soccer practice.

I haven’t gone on a run in a  week. I REALLY REALLY didn’t want to.

But I did it. (because of you guys. I wanted to say I did it. not that I was a couch potato)

While he was at practice, I went on a three mile run. It wasn’t too bad. Except dinner was a rock in my stomach. haha

Plan is to run on friday too. The half marathon is coming up soon!

Question for you:

Would you rather cook or bake?

– Id rather bake ANY day

Do you think I should spray paint the cabinet? Yay or Nay?

Between 10 and 2

Today was ALL about the house.

After taking Andrew to a friend’s house (YEA ME time) ok. not really. I had my nephew.

Yesterday, I got a call from the AWESOME countertop people telling me they can deliver my countertop on THursday- YEAAAA.

“We will be there between 10 and 2”

greatttttt” 😦

Thats only in the middle of the day and four hours. No biggie. (why is it always such a WIDE range? Id rather they just say between 10 and 2 and then call me when they will be there within the hour. Im always afraid they will come when Im downstairs doing laundry, or when I take out the trash)

Well I kept myself busy, while I played the waiting game…..


Step 1: Remove  the first layer of contact paper on the shelves

Step 2: Remove the second layer

Step 3: Replace with new contact paper! FINISHED!

Looks So much better! I also cleaned the whole closet and the inside of all the cabinets. I used three buckets of mr clean!

Finally, after only waiting 2 hours………………the countertop arrived!!!!

I cant wait to get it in the kitchen! Some are worried about how it will look with the yellow walls……..

Tonight was trim night though. My brother and dad got all the trim around the doors and one window. Looks GREAT!

Those pictures to come…………………….

Question for you:

-Are you tired to hear about my kitchen? haha

-I need new recipes!!! I will do a food blog someday…..

Up on the wall

I love before and after blogs! And this one is probably my favorite


Yes. The kitchen is almost done (still need to paint a bit. get two cabinets up. and put up the trim)

After work on Friday, I went straight to my house to help my two brothers with the kitchen. Getting the cabinets in, electric work, lights up.

Then saturday we put the dishwasher, oven, and kitchen back in. Got the counter top put back in (which will get replaced. Need to order it)

So here are the updated pictures. but Ill first start with the BEFORE pics

Of course, there were A LOT of working photos!

And of course some SEMI finished projects

WOW! What a huge difference, right?!?!

Yellow Brick Road

Yes everyone the kitchen is OFFICIALLY yellow! Its 11pm and I have to work tomorrow, so enjoy the pictures!





NEXT on the list!!!

Getting the cabinets up tomorrow and picking a counter top…


Another big decision………..Im tired haha

There are a few bad things: I havent worked out much (but Ive been moving my butt from sun up to sun down), I havent gotten much sleep

The good: My mom asked if I have lost weight. Im not sure, havent had a chance to check the scale. But I dont think I have.

SOOOOOOOOOOO what does everyone think????

I hope you like it 🙂

cookies for dinner

After church it was time for breakfast. It MAY look different…

Its basically my favorite egg sandwich, but on a mission wrap. I also had to ditch the banana, it was on its last day. i knew I should have used it for baking instead (well you live and learn)

Then a few hours of packing. I swear it never ends!

Lunch was a boca burger. WELCOME BACK PEPPERS! We havent had any in the house, but luckily Sams was on the agenda today

For dessert, my sweet tooth was SCREAMING! So I had a pudding and pecans. It did the trick.

It was then off to my kickball game!

I had a piece of french bread and a small cashew cookie larabar on the way out the door

Yes. We are the Squirrels. The first game was really fun. The other team played fair and everyone had some friendly competition. We tied 7 to 7. The second game was a different story. The team was MEAN!! They were even bad talking ME! And im the nice one! haha. We ended up losing 2 to 1.

Right after that it was time to head to my house and paint! Yep. The cabinets are ALMOST finished!

But its the last one!!! so only two more coats till Im done!!

I swear. I never want to paint cabinets again in my life haha

THen. I got a call from my mom that my older brother got into a motorcylce accident. Luckily, he wasn’t going that fast. The other car wasn’t paying attention and just got the front of his bike. It did fly off his bike, but his right leg was only affected. The hospital did xrays and a CT scan. And everything looks ok. Although he is on crutches because his leg is swollen. He was EXTREMELY lucky!

Needless to say, even after all the running around, and my brothers accident. All I had were cookies for dinner. But hey they were good!! so good…I didnt take a picture haha

I also had a small slice of frozen pizza and a drink in a bag. Later that night. It was a good stress reliever 🙂
