Purse meet Suitcase... Suitcase meet Purse...

Well if you are my cousin you think my purse is a suitcase, however I beg to differ. See I have a BIG purse! I love big purses. There is so much you can do with a big purse! First I can put my lunch in it so I don't have to carry a separate bag, second I can put some bottle drinks in there for when I am shopping or heading to work. I can pretty much carry anything and everything in my purse (probably even a small animal/kid) I am joking about the kid but I probably could! :) So you are probably wondering where I am going with this post, because I kind of am... Over at JennyKate's Spot she was tagged with telling everyone about her purse. And well she tagged anyone that wanted to post about it to do so. So here I am, I tagged myself to tell you about my purse! You excited!?!?! :)

1) Post a picture of whatever bag you are carrying as of late. No, you cannot go up to your closet and pull out that cute little purse you used back before you had kids. I want to know what you carried today or the last time you left the house.


This is my purse.



I did have a different one up until last Saturday but it was getting on my nerves so I switched it back to this purse. I heart this purse. It fits my arm just perfect! :) I can pretty much put anything in it that I need, like when I am taking my Lean Cuisine to work for lunch and my water bottle and of course my snacks like oranges, apples or oatmeal *I think I have fit all of that in my purse at one time :)*

2) I want to know how much it cost☺ and this is not to judge. This is for entertainment purposes only. So spill it. And if there is a story to go along with how you obtained it, I’d love to hear it.


My purse only cost $29.99 at Target. I normally do not spend that much on a purse; I do not think I have ever spent that much on a purse before. I normally wait until it goes on sale or wait until I have a coupon. I really do not like other people buying purses for me because I like to take several in my buggy and "try them on" while walking around the store. Ya know put it on my shoulder, to check the ease of it all! I take purse buying extremely SERIOUS! :)


The story behind this purse I have eyed this purse every time I went on my many shopping trips to Target. A Saturday before I went out of town for work. I looked everywhere for a purse, and I kind of found one I liked but it was a little to much for me, I think it should have been on sale and it wasn't so I passed it up. I shopped for like 3 hours for a purse, went to Gordmans, Khols, JC Penny's, and than finally went back to Target and I fell INLOVE again with this purse. So I bought it! My husband doesn't like it he thinks it looks like a hobo bag! But I heart it!


3) Show me your insides! (I added this)




This is what I currently have in my purse... coupon book, wallet, CC wallet, VS lotion, 2-09 calendars, alieve, medicine, 2 packs of gum, candy, anti bacterial x2, mirror, bills, and little brown carrier...

And the following contest are in the brown little carrier in my purse; aromatherapy headache relief (bath and body), NYC sheer red lipstick, CG Wetslicks AmazeMint (lip gloss), pencil, Neutrogena Moisture Shine Gloss, VS Lip Gloss, Mary Kay lip gloss, Cover Girl Outlast lip stick with shiny gloss, L’Oreal colour juice sheer juicy lip gloss, 2 blue pens, and L’Oreal Infallible Raisin Lip Gloss. Do you see a theme here?

4. Tag some chicks. And link back to this post so people know why the heck you’re showing everyone your purse.


So I am going to do like she did and say
TAG YOUR IT! If you read this consider yourself tagged! Its fun! And it’s an excuse to clean out your purse! HA!

Woo to the Hoo Wednesday!


To find out more information please click on the picture to find out more information about the Woo to the Hoo Wednesday!

So I am posting a little late, its been a C-R-A-Z-Y week at work. My WOO goes to my old youth pastor that I had when I was in highschool. He sends out devotions every single day, also gives his own praise to God. It encourages me alot. I appreciate him taking time out of his day to send the devotions out to his "email list". He also encourages me to get right with God, to find a church my husband and I haven't found a home church, although we haven't been activly trying either. So we are right now looking for a home church. If you are reading this I ask that you pray for us, that God helps us find a home church. So Woo to the Hoo to my ex/old Youth Pastor!

The DAWGS "Hang Out"

My dog, Chloe, and my cousin's dog Holden, LOVE to go to the dog park. They beg us all of the time. Chloe wants me to call cousin Holden and ask if he wants to go to the "hang out" (I guess that is what they call it now days, crazy kids) This is the kids on the way to the "hang out"

Chloe looking pretty ready to go out and play with her other doggy friends...


Holden just can't wait to go, how much longer do we have to wait! (They always ask this the entire way to the park, they can barely hold their EXCITEMENT! However on the way home from the park is a different story HA!)


Chloe walking around seeing all of her friends...


Chloe running and playing...


Of course we need to pick up our poo's... (**TMI for the DOG** Funny thing about "poo's" my precious-precious-precious Chloe, has to go "POO" like 10X in an hour when we go to the park, she cracks me up, so when we walk around the park I always have around 10 poo-bags just in case she decides to have a "private" moment:)


In the winter, they shut the water off, so the owners bring in bottle water for the pups! Here are a lot of dogs just hanging out drinking some water, and starting to run off and play again, you can see short little Holden in there somewhere :)


And Holden... If you hear Holden's bark it is a "special" bark. He sounds like a SEAL, SERIOUSLY. Sometimes the children get this "wild hair" and start running around following each other all around the park, it is quite funny because usually when it happens almost all dogs join in, and they run EVERYWHERE. So this one time I had my camera and started videoing half way in to this little episode! You can hear Holden's bark he barks one time at the beginning and another time a few seconds in, LOL, his mama wanted him to stop barking because she didn't want him to embarrass himself! LOL!

Enjoy! (make sure you turn your volume up)

We had fun, we went to the park ya know all the fun stuff that kids want to do when they are with their Aunts/Uncle. But on the way back J wanted me to ride in the back seat with him to read him his dinosaurs sticker books!


How could I refuse this face?



Or even this face?


So you see, this trip is 1.5 hours and we got a little crazy with the "dino stickers"...

We call this one "DINO EYES"
(take one)


(take two)


And we call this one "DINO EARS"



But of course we had to take a picture of our wild crazy driver we are not exactly sure what she is drinking we hope it is POP and not POP spiked with something else... LOL JK!



Good news to post my niece is out of the hospital, she got out yesterday!!!

Riding the Electric Pony...

This past fall, my cousin Feather and I did a Citizen Police Academy Class and we had a chance to get tasered. So of course I wanted to try! I was the very first girl to go in my class! :) I am so brave!

What they do is it is actually a REAL taser gun and instead of the probes at the end they have two alligator clips which they attach the alligator clips to your clothes, one at the top like by your shoulder and the other by your bottom like shirt tail.

You need to have two spotters so just in case you fall they will help you. My cousin Feather was on my right side. I was SO nervous!

I could actually feel like the electricity going through those two clips it was so weird, and he only did it for 2 seconds although it felt like an eternity!

This video has been passed around several times and at work one of my bosses sent an email to her MIL and I am forever known to her as "Sara the girl that got Tasered!" LOL

So Enjoy! And make sure you Turn your Sound UP! :)

Yes Honey I actually COOKED!!!

So my husband is out of town 3 weeks out of a month and that means that I normally do not cook. Well for the past month and before that I really didn't cook that much. Well this month my husband and I are trying to be on a budget and that meant no more eating out! :) I know this is going to be really hard for us because for one thing he is used to eating out all of time due to being out of town.

So I am going to try different recipes and this is the place that I will post them and give my review!

Monday - Pasta Bake
  • 4 cups of pasta (any kind) (I used about 6 cups)
  • 1 lb of ground meat (I think I used ALMOST a lb, it was a little under)
  • 1 medium bell pepper chopped
  • 1 medium onion chopped
  • 1 cup of sliced fresh mushrooms
  • 1 big jar of meatless spaghetti sauce
  • 1 egg, lightly beaten
  • 2 cups of shredded mozzarella cheese (I used whatever cheese was on hand because i forgot to buy Mozzarella cheese)
Directions
Cook pasta according to package. Meanwhile in a large skillet cook the beef, onions, peppers, mushrooms until meat is no longer pink, drain meat and pasta, in the pasta bowl (or seperate bowl) mix together the pasta and meat mixture add spaghetti sauce, and mix in the egg, place in a 13 quart baking dish (well greased) top with cheese and place in an over @ 350 for 20-25 minutes, this makes a good 8-10 servings each, or 6 good servings!

Tuesday - Stir Fry (from Janice)
  • 1 box of frozen pop corn chicken ( or any other kind of chicken you want)
  • 1 regular bag of frozen broccoli (or any other veggie of your choice)
  • 1 regular size onion chopped
  • 1 cup of mushrooms
  • 1 clove or garlic
  • Spices - add any spices that you think would be good with this dish
  • EVOO (extra virgin olive oil)
  • 4 servings of rice or more depending upon the size of your family

Cook Rice as directed on box. in a big frying pan or a pan with high sides, poor a little bit of EVOO in it, than add the frozen veggie of your choice. After almost done than add the frozen chicken. Than after a few minutes (after the chicken is no longer frozen) add onion/garlic/mushrooms. cook until all is soft and finished add seasonings all during this process and you are finished. (While cooking, the bottom of your "stir fry pot" will look like it is burned this is normal (i think or atleast this happend 2x with me cooking it) just make sure you add EVOO all during the cooking process, just makes it all cook easier!

After your stir fry is finished get a bowl, put rice down first and than add your stir fry mixture on top and WAA LAA!





Wednesday Meatloaf
This is actually a really good meatloaf recipe! I forgot which blog I stole the recipe from but man oh man it is YUMMIE!!!

  • 1/2 cup chopped onion
  • 1 cup shredded cheese

We also had homemade mashed potatoes and corn.

Thursday - Chicken Enchiladas
  • 1-1/2 cups (12 ounces) reduced-fat sour cream
  • 1 can (10-3/4 ounces) reduced-fat reduced-sodium condensed cream of chicken soup, undiluted
  • 1 can (4 ounces) chopped green chilies
  • 1 can (2-1/4 ounces) sliced ripe olives, drained (I didn't add olives because both my husband and I do not like olives)
  • 4 cups cubed cooked chicken breast (I just boiled 2 boneless skinless chicken breast and shredded it up and put it in the mixture)
  • 1 cup (4 ounces) shredded reduced-fat Monterey Jack or Mexican cheese blend, divided
  • 1 cup (4 ounces) shredded reduced-fat cheddar cheese, divided
  • 12 fat-free flour tortillas (6 inches), warmed
  • 4 green onions, thinly sliced

In a large bowl, combine the sour cream, soup, chilies and olives. Set aside 1-1/2 cups for topping. Add the chicken, 1/2 cup Monterey Jack cheese and 1/2 cup cheddar cheese to remaining soup mixture.
Spoon about 1/3 cup chicken mixture down the center of each tortilla; roll up tightly. Place seam side down in a 13-in. x 9-in. baking dish coated with cooking spray. Top with reserved soup mixture.
Bake, uncovered, at 350° for 35 minutes. Sprinkle with remaining cheeses; top with onions. Bake 10-15 minutes longer or until cheese is melted. Yield: 6 servings.


I also made Mexican rice/corn to go with it

Friday - (we were bad we ate out :( )

Saturday - Fried Chicken
  • 2 Chicken breast (boneless)
  • 1.5 cups of flour - salt and pepper with a little of garlic salt mixed in
  • Egg wash - 2-3 eggs whisked with milk added
  • Dipped Chicken in egg wash than placed in flour and repeated this all together 2x
