Daily LOLs + this and that! April 15, 2012

Filed under: Uncategorized — bressett3 @ 1:43 pm

I have spent the last 2 weeks getting ready to do a craft fair and now that my crafting gogles are off – my house is making me cry! Holy moly there is so much to do!!

Spring break is supposed to be this relaxing time away from school that I used to look forward to every year. Now that my kids are the ones on spring break…… I am ready to get my kids dressed, put their book bags on and sit them by the door until Monday morning comes! I have never watched so much nick jr. in my life! I hear things like “momma, we are just making human bridges!” & “OWWW, its ok mom, I just got my eye stabbed out” & “*jovie SCREAMING* BUBBA!!! I bEEt Yo ButT!! Yor baD BOy!” every 5 minutes.   *MY KIDS ARE DRIVING ME NUTS AND DESTROYING MY HOUSE* Come on Monday! lol!

American Reunion made me feel SO OLD.

Apparently you can get horrible sunburn in April. Who knew!? Well I surely do now! *glares at bra* Uh-uh! No way jose. That thing can just sit there all day! lol!

this week in lindsay land….. March 17, 2012

(Sidenote, or rather before the blog note- I wrote part of this yesterday and the day before- lol so please don’t think I am crazy!)

 

How is everyone one this fine 80 some degree Tantrum Thursday!??? I am going to assume that it is the sudden heat that has gone to Jovie’s tiny 2-year-old brain and thus caused it to cross some wires because I cannot handle another day like today! Every 5 minutes my eye would start twitching as her howling, twirling, stomping, pointing, arm throwing, screaming, crying fits started up. My eye is still twitching, but at least I know that in an hour, she will be in bed! lol!

 

I was coming up with a recipe for a cross between almond joys and mounds in a cup form and I was trying to come up with a name for it. Almondy coconut cups, AJM cups, cocoalmond dark choco cups,  and lastly mounds of joy cups…….and then I almost died laughing at just how inappropriate that last one was. People stared while I continued to randomly laugh at myself….and by people I mean my kids. lololol Still working on both the recipe and the name…..

 

I have started a new Facebook page just for my cute little accessories! If you haven’t checked it out, please do!! www.facebook.com/JoBellaAccessories  of course named after my beautiful little inspiration!!

 

 

I have a quicky recipe for you all! Super simple cheaters restaurant version of Strawberry Lemonade! First you need these to things:

+ a cup + ice + something to stir. If you are like my hubby and I- we do not drink often so this strawberry mix stuff just sits around for ever!  LOL. I personally do not love this sparkling lemonade from walmart on its own- however – it is perfect in this quick recipe! Bonus- completely calorie free, so the only calories you will get will depend on how much of the strawberry stuff you add. I add a little more than a cap full ( I like mine sweet lol )

…TADAAAAA!!!  This was about 1/2-3/4 a cup of lemonade with almost 2 cap fulls of strawberry stuff. This is stuff is a yummy change-up from soda, regular pink lemonade, tea, etc…..with the bonus of not having to cut up any strawberries. Yummy bubbly lemonade with a real strawberry taste + less work for mommy = BOOYAH.

 

 

 

 

 

Also, I am thrilled to share that one of my recipes on tastykitchen.com received a wonderful review! I actually shed a tear over the review lol, it was just awesome to hear that it turned out great in someone else’s kitchen. Although when I posted the recipe, some of my words were changed up by the website folks, so I just want to clarify that using the hot version of sausage is our personal family favorite! but – you can of course use any kind you want!   http://tastykitchen.com/recipes/condiments/country-sausage-gravy/   if you feel like indulging on some breakfast – definitely check this out 🙂

A little of this and a little of that March 6, 2012

Filed under: Uncategorized — bressett3 @ 9:47 pm

dear mister sunshine – please please please come out and stay a while!!!……and dry up all the mud in my backyard! I am sooooo very tired of my dogs having it look like a ladies mud wresting event went on back there.

Sleep studies are designed to make it almost impossible to sleep…..I am dead serious. First goop me up, attach 2349038984585 cords to me that all attach to a metal/plastic box that’s supposed to lay beside me with all of 5 inches of extra cord, give me one pillow and a sheet of paper blanket and tell me to stay on my back all night……….. and then expect to get a good idea of how I sleep at night………have you ever seen black swan? or any ballet or ballet movie for that matter? I sleep stretched out like I am performing swan lake on my stomach in my bed, not like dracula……sleep study yeah right!!*pppsssssshhhhhhhhhh*

I got my fingernails done for the first time in years this weekend. They are super purdyfuls! However, I have come to the conclusion that they have reverted me back to age 5……I can’t open shhhhnuffin!!!!! I have to ask for help with everything now! Cans, drawers, doors, containers of any kind,can’t pump gas, and picking up those little jewels while making crafts….well thats just impossible. I realize now that I have been condemned to a life of 11-year-old boy finger nails….and I think I am ok with that lol.

My two-year old is talking so much more these days its scary! My son never did the whole parrot thing as badly as my daughter is. The other day I did something like take a toy and all I hear is her say “well dambit.” ……….Dear Lord, You and I both know what she was really saying…..pahlease make her forget that word before she goes to school………cause that one is a BMA x’s 100……….

I should be ashamed but instead I find myself kind of proud that whenever I say ”I’m sexy and I know it…” my son-without hesitation answers with “yeahhhhhh I WORK OUT.” lol and then jovie chimes in and shakes her butt. LOL **** If you don’t know anything else about my family- know that we are a music filled bunch and that my both of my kids can sing more songs than some adults I know. And why yes, I am very proud of that lol!

What’s that?!? No, of course not! Those were definatly NOT tears in my eyes during the Lorax…………………………………

 

It is a love love kinda hate relationship March 1, 2012

Filed under: Uncategorized — bressett3 @ 8:26 pm

So my desktop computer is seriously under the weather at the moment and I have been trying to revive it. While taking a slight break from the internet I made time for other things like babies with the stomach flu, angry birds, and my secret love child. Ok it’s not technically a love child, or a child at all, but it might as well be!! I stay up late for it, I lose lots of sleep over it, it’s always on my mind, I yell at it when it makes me angry, cry when it makes me sad, it is always begging for my attention, even making me forget to eat some days! This my friends is the Hunger Games trilogy. I will try not to give anything away, but be careful reading on if you are still reading it or want to read it. I finally finished them today and let me just say ‘amazing!!!’, yet I cannot help but be angry with the ending!!! I hope that I am not alone in this, but I really feel like the author kind of crapped out on the love story by the end. Now, I appreciate that the book is SOOOO much more than that, but as a hopeless romantic- it was disappointing to embrace this sweet character she created in Peeta and just watch it disappear and then she really never recovers it (enough for me that is). There wasn’t even a bit of closer with half of the characters! I guess the ending just seemed to slump off the details that I really thought we would get after the first 2 books. Seriously, didn’t you expect her to have some sort of revelation that she was in fact in love with him and not Gale? I surely expected something like that. I know she touched on it all, but the touches just make me wish she had done more!  For the first time, I think that I am actually rooting for hollywood to add a little flair to the movies- at least the last one. You don’t build up a book series on the back of a super romantic guy that will do anything for this girl, and then *insert blowing a raspberry* basically watch it become the piece of wallpaper peeling off in the corner- and by that I mean feeling slightly incomplete and it will always bother you lol. Now yes, I read the epilogue and it did make me happy, but it felt like she had to put that there because of the lack of a better ending.

Sorry you guys had to listen to that, and I probably just embarrassed myself by showing just how into a book I can get, but it had to be said! lol

 

Homemade Reese Cups :) February 26, 2012

Filed under: Uncategorized — bressett3 @ 4:35 pm

Here is the recipe that I used as a starting point for the cups!

http://thewhimsicalprincess.blogspot.com/2011/03/diy-reese-peanut-butter-egg.html

However, I did not make the full recipe this time because I was just trying it out. Basically, in true Lindsay fashion I measured nothing and just threw it in a bowl and mixed it up lol. But I am pretty sure you can just half this recipe and get about as many as I did (24 cups). I didn’t feel like shaping & dipping the ‘eggs’ so instead I used a 24 count mini cupcake pan. I used regular Crisco and a papertowel to grease every single cup- this is super important if you want them to come out easily! Not too much but do get the whole cup coated. You could also use the mini cupcake wrappers- although I am unsure how cleanly they would peel away from the chocolate in the end.

I melted half a bag of semi sweet chocolate chips (you can use any chocolate you like & next time I will use milk chocolate to get a more authentic Reese taste) with about a tsp of Crisco. After greasing the cupcake pan I poured just a small spoonful of chocolate into the bottoms of the cupcake pan. After they have all been coated, lightly smack your pan on the counter to ‘settle’ the chocolate uniformly on the bottoms. This is the base of your cups! Pop it into the freezer for about 10-15 minutes. Mix up the peanut butter mixture, and I put mine in a ziplock bag and cut the tip off (like an icing bag) and put a dollop of it into each cup, pressing it down slightly so that it doesn’t touch the edges of the pan (otherwise you wont get the top chocolate coating on the sides). finish all your cups and then melt the other part of your chocolate with the Crisco and pour just enough to cover them. Tap on your counter again and then pop in the freezer for a good 45 minutes until firm. You should be able to use a spoon and apply a small amount of pressure on the sides of the cups and they should pop right out!! I am keeping mine in the fridge 🙂 Enjoy!!

 

I may or may not have kinda already earned a BMA today…… February 25, 2012

Filed under: Uncategorized — bressett3 @ 3:47 pm

And no, I don’t mean a british music award, I am no Adele lol.

I have this saying when I do something questionable as a mother. I am sure we all have moments as moms where we stop and go, that was probably a bad idea…..atleast I know I have lots of those moments. When those moments happen, I give myself a BMA= bad mom award. Now, I know I am a good mom, but lately I am having a LOT of those BMA moments. Gummy snacks for breakfast when we are in a rush or to avoid a 2-year-old meltdown = bad mom award. Telling my son that I will throw the Wii in the road if he cries to play it again = bad mom award. I constantly ask both of them if they are on crack when they do something crazy, to which they both say yes = bad mom award. I taught my daughter that her private part is called a whoo-haa = bma. Occasionally I am THAT mom in walmart with the screaming 2-year-old just walking around with a glazed over look because nothing I say will shut her up = possible bma. I teach my kids words like ‘hillbilly’ ,’turd nugget’ , and “weiney head.” = BMA fo’ sho’. Sometimes I have NO idea what either of my kids are saying/talking about and instead of asking them 5 times what they are talking about, I will simply go “WHA??? That is SOOOOO Awesome!!” – not sure if that’s bma worthy, but sometimes it feels like it lol. I tell them things like ‘Oh well the ice cream store is closed’ or “you are allergic to the stuff in my dessert”, oh & ‘the bounce house had to send all the bouncy things to Santa to be repaired.” = yeah I know…..BMA. And lastly I am not proud of this at all, but occasionally when they are crying or screaming and I have just had enough, sometimes I fake/cry and scream right back at them….(they almost always laugh but still lol)…most certianly BMA.

Don’t get me wrong, I know I have a long way to go before I really consider myself a bad mom. I love my kiddos! It’s just, sometimes those little weiney heads make me feel like I’m on crack!!! lol 🙂
