Full time Mom

A lot has happened since I last blogged; I really don't feel like getting into all of it, so I'll get into the interesting parts.:) I am going to re-do my whole shop. I'm not going to get into any specifics because usually when I do that I don't follow through. Needless to say, I'm pretty freakin' excited.
Other than that, not much has been going on.

Sometimes it does get a bit hard being a stay at home mom when most of the women around me are very career driven. I would love to have a career with the paychecks, the lunch breaks and the coffee breaks that I dont get doing this, and one day in the near future I will. I look at it like this, I am not one bit ashamed to spend as much time with my daughter instilling good values into her and giving her the love that not even the most expensive daycare can provide ( I'm not saying women who send their chilldren to daycare love their children any less). Other women with powerful jobs may look down on stay at home moms. I say screw them. There is nothing harder than being a full time mom.

  I am so glad that there are women out there in the workforce that are the best at what they do, and hopefully I will have the opportunity to do it too, but the next time you decide to judge someone for wanting to be there for her child 24/7 as a cook, maid, parent, teacher, referee, nanny, nurse, handy-woman,a security officer, stylist,entertainer & a comforter, make sure that you add up how much the yearly salary is for all those jobs, (remember, we do it for free). Also think of how many less ignorant fools you'd have to deal with on a daily basis because a mom actually took the time to make sure they were raised properly.

Fall season :)

 The fall season is approaching in a matter of days, so you know what that means? Football season! I personally don't follow it but I do love this time of the year. The time when most husbands,dads, grandpas, brothers and of course we won't forget the pigskin loving ladies, sit on the couch with a beer and scream at the TV like psycho ward escapees. Superbowl and tailgating parties are sure to be on the calender (I usually go for the food haha). So in honor of this time of year I am going to be featuring some tailgating recipes, so look for those soon.

6 Easy Finger Food Recipes to Satisfy Your Super Bowl Sunday Guests

Also, I've mentioned in one of my earlier blogs that I love thrifting. My mom loves it even more, so one day as I was being taken hostage by my mom at Park Avenue Thrift (much cheaper than Goodwill) I found these two chairs, they were priced at like $9 for both and it just so happens my mom had a 50% off coupon so I got the set for like $4.50! They don't look like much now but I immediately saw the finished product after I clean, re-cover the pillows and paint them. I've posted pictures of the before. Once I finish them I will post the after. Oh and I think the cushions are upside down (haha)...whatever you get what they look like.

Very Easy Mushroom Pot Roast

I usually make this roast when I have guests over for sunday dinner, it's a hit. It tastes like something that requires a lot of effort but it really doesn't. Only a few ingredients are needed. Only catch is, if you want to eat at a decent hour you have to get up pretty early (I really do hate that part lol).

Any one of the ingredients that doesn't specify an amount is up to you.

I came up with this recipe a couple of years ago because I needed to cook something but I only had these few ingredients in my kitchen lol.

What you will need:

  1.  Eye of round roast (Do not use Chuck Roast it will be too greasy)
  2. 2 cans or 1 big can of Cream of Mushroom soup
  3. Mushrooms (fresh or canned)
  4. Salt ( I use lawry's seasoning salt of course ;)
  5. pepper
  6. Onion (or onion powder)
  7. 1/4 cup flour
  8. 1/2 cup water
  9. 1/2 cup milk


  1.  Set crockpot on low for 10 hours (Yes, 10 hours)
  2. Pour in water, milk flour; whisk until theres no lumps
  3. Add cans of soup and mushrooms,onions mix together
  4. Season Meat; Put it in the crockpot
  5. Add top and let it cook (Try to keep opening crockpot to a minimum because it takes a while for it to heat back up to the normal temp)
This dish is best served with HOMEMADE mashed potatoes (The box stuff doesn't cut it, lol) or rice.

I'm sorry It's kinda hard taking a good pic of roast lol

Quick and Easy Doughnuts :)

Yeah I know, I've been slacking on the recipes. I seriously should've been a cop because I LOVE doughnuts! Yeah it's not the healthiest food but you gotta treat yourself sometime ya know :). They're not exactly what I expected..Instead of Krispy Kreme they're more like chinese doughnuts.

What you will need:

  1. 1 Pkg refrigerated buttermilk biscuits

  2. Oil for frying

  3. Bottle cap (water bottle or soda bottle)

  4. Wax paper

  5. Choice of topping:

  6. I used a little cinnamon and sugar

  1. Preheat oil to about 375F

  2. Seperate dough on wax paper

  3. Cut out doughnut holes with bottle cap

  4. Cook dough in pre-heated oil until golden brown (this should only take a few seconds on each side)

  5. Put cooked doughnuts on plate with paper towel

  6. Immediately put on topping
Voila! :)

Yesterday was spent cutting fabric because I was hoping that I could start sewing today. But I am just so tired for some reason and I don`t feel like my normal self today. Plus there`s the fact that Addison is going thru some kind of possesive phase, she won`t let me put her down or leave her sight. It is very nice to feel needed and I`m flattered but this has to stop lol. Anyway, other than having a feeling of dissapointment (Not in the baby but in another situation I wont get into at the moment) I am doing well. To sum this whole thing up...I got nothing accomplished today.

Don't you just hate how difficult life can be at times? It's so irritating being the person I am, always bearing the weight of my own problems along with others on my shoulders. I know that this is not how it should be, yet I always do it. Darn my stupid emotions. Sometimes I wonder if it's easier being a guy, someone who thinks logically, with their brains more than their hearts.

I hate how super-sensitive I can be at times constantly wondering what was meant by someone's actions or feeling anger, sadness and dissapointment not only for myself but for other people; doing things for people even if I don't want to even if they don't have my best intentions at heart. By no means am I the type of person who cries at the drop of a dime, I loathe that type of person. I'm the type of person that will do and feel and give for people until I explode, whether it be numbness, crying or anger. Yes it's true, I'm a good judge of character. I know when people don't have my best intentions at heart. Sometimes, I just hope that my kindness will turn that around...but it never does.

I'm going to change myself...No I'm going to change my element the people I choose to have as close companions...no I don't mean I'm going to be mean or write people off, I'm just going to choose carefully the people that I let into my heart. I'm not talking about anyone in particular, I've been thinking this over for a while now. Tommorow I'll get back to happier posts.:)
