Five for Friday

Ahh, it's Friday! 
This has been a great week but so busy yet again. As if the weekend tummy virus wasn't enough sickness a wicked sinus infection has taken its place. So I'm hoping for a healthy weekend! 

Here are five things that I'm feeling, loving,  and enjoying this week:

/1// Even though I haven't felt great I have felt like cooking. The healthy turkey meatloaf was amazing and under that sauce is some amazing asparagus.  Loving some cooking! 

/2// Today I'm going on a field trip with my fifth graders. Loving a fun day with the kiddos! 
(And a chance to have less papers to grade since I'm always behind on grading)

/3// Really enjoying time with my husband. I mean I always do but this week I've really enjoyed our time together and the little things. Can't believe our first anniversary is around the corner. 

/4// Loved learning in small group this week about how we love others. What we pour from our heart needs to be love and why even in unfavorable situations we are called to handle life with our heart of a faithful servant. 

/5// Finally,  the kiddos had a project. 
They were to label a brown paper grocery bag with a picture, name, and dates of a specific president.  Inside the bag 4-7 items that represent the president and be able to explain why. Of course I encourage them to always be creative. 

Can you guess which president this item would represent? 
It is a water bottle with a toy gate on it...
A "Watergate" for Nixon. 
I got a kick out this, truly original!

{Tasty Tuesday} Chicken Spaghetti

Okay, before I share the recipe for this you have to know why I swear by it--
This was the first thing I ever cooked for Drew and I.
So we always have to chuckle that this recipe is why he married me. 
Possibly that good?!

 As you can tell by this picture this is not your regular chicken spaghetti. It has a white sauce not red but it will not disappoint. 

You will need two large cans of the all white meat chicken, one can of cream of chicken, one can of cream of celery, chicken broth, two cups diced celery, two cups diced onions, spaghetti noodles of your choice, and I like the Italian cheese blend for the top or Parmesan, and one unhealthy stick of butter.  

First saute the celery and onion with the stick of butter. I have a battle with myself every time I cook this because I'm sure a half stick would be just as good but I commit to the original recipe and use the whole stick. #southernstyle

Once they are nice and tender add all of the cream of chicken, cream of celery, and broth. I usually cut up the "canned" chicken then combine it to the mixture. This is also a great time to add fresh ground pepper or salt if like or you can always kick it up a notch with a pinch of garlic. 

Now here is the odd/important part of this recipe. For the pasta you do not follow usual pasta boiling directions. Instead bring to a boil a large pot of water then add pasta, cover, and remove from heat (still covered) for 30 minutes. In the meantime allow the mixture to simmer. 

Once the pasta has sat in the water for 30 minutes, drain, and combine with sauce mixture.

Since it is so much pasta and sauce I usually do about half of it at a time.
I put half the pasta in the casserole dish and mix and then add the rest. 
When finished cover with cheese and dot with butter.

Bake at 350 for about half an hour or until the edges turn light brown.

You won't regret this!
Paired with bread and a salad this is the perfect date night dinner and the leftovers are even better the next day and it freezes perfectly.

Good Bag Beauty Swap {all about nails}

Link Up

I recently joined the lovely ladies over at Fabulously Faint and Boy, oh {mamas} boys! for a beauty bag goodie swap.

The theme this goodie bag was all things nails!
Painting my nails is something I love to do but feel like I don't do near enough.
With these new goodies I can't help but feel excited about new spring nails!

I was paired with the beautiful mamma Shadia.
If you haven't checked our her blog and the adorable pics of her sweet little boy you're missing out!

I love the goodies she sent me!
The most adorable GLITTER nail file. I love sparkle so this was just the file I needed!
A fine tip white pen so I can do fancy accent nails, so fun!
A great top coat, always needed.
And a beautiful all girlie Essie pink, "Mod Square"

This pink is the PERFECT bubble gum, girlie, spring time pink--

{Our Weekend} and homemade chicken soup

A little upset that Monday is a few hours away.
I've spent this weekend sick with a stomach bug, yuck!
Friday I didn't feel well and thought it was because I was so tired from a pretty stressful week.
Then Friday evening we went to our favorite beer garden and in almost three hours I couldn't even force down one brew. Should have known I was getting sick!

 Although I didn't feel well we did have a good time.
We played life size Jenga till we couldn't reach anymore and lots of other dogs were out so Copper had lots of fur friends to play with. 

Saturday morning I woke up sick to my stomach and it finally "hit" around 2. It was an intense 8 hour bug but I'm grateful I got that and not some of the other stuff going around. I'm super grateful for my sweet hubby for taking such good care of me. 

Today I've taken yet another nap then wanted to make something simple for dinner. 
My principal had given us this recipe and all the ingredients for Chicken Soup as a staff Christmas gift. I've been saving it because I was so excited to have a "free" night of cooking. Finally decided that tonight was the night! Hard to beat good chicken soup when you're trying to get better.

All you need is:
1 can of cooked white meat chicken, 1 can of mixed veggies, 1 can of cream of chicken, 1T of rotisserie chicken seasoning, 2T minced onion, 2 cups of egg noodles, 1 chicken bouillon cube

Mix it all together with 6 cups of water and cook on medium for half an hour or so.
I let ours simmer for about an house and it was delicious!

Even though I'm feeling better than yesterday I'm still taking it easy today especially on my tummy. This soup was great and hit the spot. If it taste this good when I don't feel that well I can't wait to make it when I'm feeling better.

Tomorrow I'm posting my "Beauty Bag" for the goodies swap!

11 Random Facts about ME!

/1// Copper is my first dog I've ever had. Always had cats growing up. Although I loved them I was missing out. They really are mans gals best friend!

/2// In high school I could have cared less about my grades. Just kept them good enough to keep my parents happy. In college I learned quickly I would have to work MUCH harder. Proud to say I graduated with a 4.0
(shout out to all my tutors for the MANY hours of help #teamwork)

/3// Drew was the very first person I met on the first day of high school. We wouldn't date till the end of our sophomore year of college.

/4// I find scuba diving to be the most fun yet most scary thing I've ever done. I always remind Drew of the story of Jonah and the whale in  the Bible when we dive--he thinks I'm ridiculous. 

/5// I love to paint but I'm terrible at it.

/6// I could eat a piece of toast, 2 boiled eggs whites, and coffee for breakfast every day forever and be perfectly fine with that. It's the perfect combo!

/7// For years I've had a "purse fetish" but can't remember the last time I got a new one. I guess that means I'm getting old when I have a hard time spending the coin on a bag.

/8// I'm addicted to the little orange "cuties"--eat like 3 a day.

/9// I wore braces, head gear, etc. for YEARS!! To this very day I sleep in a retainer at least twice a week. (he thinks it's sexy cause he has them too ha)

/10// The only job I would do instead of teaching would be to stay home with our kiddos, breed Mini Aussies, and cook like the Pioneer Woman. 

/11// The longer I teach older kids the less I like younger kids. Makes me feel terrible saying that but seeing the kindergarten class cry and throw fits in the hall while they are sticky and screaming make me SO thankful my kids are self-sufficient.

1 Questions for YOU!!
  1. Who was your best friend in 2nd grade?
-In 2nd grade I got to be real close buddies to the boy next door that I grew up with. We would play all the time.

2. Did you ever go to Summer Camp?

3. What is your favorite color?
-red!...but I also love pink...and I like wearing yellow and brown--okay I like lots of colors

6. Would you rather bake a pie or a cake?
-I absolutely hate pie! (my brother-in-law says that makes me un-American) But I love cupcakes especially sprinkles!

7. What is your dream car?
-My dream "every day" car would be a all blacked out Range Rover and my "toy" being a Mach 1 Mustang, also all blacked out.

8. What was the name of your first pet?
-A sweet kitty named Precious 

9. Do you consider yourself to be an expert in anything?

In-Between Seasons

In-Between Seasons

Today was an absolutely beautiful day!
We hit a sunny high of 65 and it was hard to remember the almost foot of snow we had
nearly a week ago.Crazy weather!

I'll take this sunshine anyday. Lately I can't get enough of running with my sweet dog Copper.
When the sun is out and it is above freezing we are hitting the pavement, these yoga pants are perfect to keep me warm and cool at the same time.

In the morning it is still cool so a fleece jacket is all I need instead of all the layers.
Reguradless of the season I love wearing dresses, with a cute pair of leggings (preferably fleece lined) they make going from winter to spring just right.

Today was the first day back after a long six day snow break
So nice to be back in the swing of things.
Hope you had a great Tuesday and got to enjoy a break in snow too!

Why being in your late twenties rocks...

This was all inspired by a cool girlie list I read on Cosmo about being late twenties.

^^^^16 years old, pre-prom

I remember being 16 and thinking that was the perfect age.
I could drive.
I loved going places with friends without my parents.
Started wearing make-up.
Life revolved around the Friday night ball game and who was going to host the Friday night sleepover with my group of girlfriends that I was attached to the hip with.
Late twenties seemed so far away.
So not interesting.

And then came the early twenties in a blink of an eye.
College was an amazing blur.
Started dating Drew right before my 22nd birthday and knew my "dating" days were complete, I found the one. We did the long distance business for a year and half then both graduated a semester apart and started our careers both back in our hometown.
Yes, early twenties seemed to be a great place to be.
Late twenties and dare I say thirty were so far away why even think about it.

Then the surprise of my life happened when Drew popped the special question on the beach at sunset on a random long weekend beach trip. Definitely the best moment of my life. I still get butterflies when I think about it. This then led to engagement life bliss, buying our first home, wedding, and married life.

Now here I am 26, will be 27 in mid July.
Wrapping up my third year of teaching.
Loving staying home more than going out.
Learned to cook without the smoke alarms regularly going off.
Learning that marriage may not be perfect but little things can make it better and stronger each day.
And now I realize that this is a great age.

Yes, 16 was fun and carefree. Yes, college was fun and learned just as much about teaching as I did life. Yes, being engaged was exciting.
Nothing compares to saying those wedding vows.
Nothing compares to hearing those wedding vows.
Nothing yet compares to being 26.

Now that the big 3-0 is closer that I ever thought it would be I'm okay with that.
I wouldn't trade where we are now for anything but finally, getting older doesn't seem that scary after all.

Friday //5/

Hard to believe this has been another 2 day work week!
With anticipation of a snow storm and not knowing when it would come in we were off Wednesday and woke up to a solid 8+ inches yesterday. It actually is barely at freezing so we can go outside to get out and enjoy the snow. We actually have a chance of a light snow tonight but nothing major. 
Now I just hope winter is over and can look forward to sun, warm, and non-layer weather.

Here are five things that have rocked my week//

Last Saturday I went to Ulta in plans of buying an expensive conditioner that would help "keep" my color from fading and last longer. Well I had the $30 bottle in my hand headed to check-out when an associate asked if I found everything okay and I said yes. She asked if I was looking for color protection and would I mind if she made a recommendation. Of course I wanted to know what she would recommend--she said that Loreal Color Vibrancy she felt was the best by far. For five bucks I had to give it a try.
I also paired it with a new Ogx shampoo and I love the combo.
My hair feels great and smells amazing.

Do you remember Dunk-A-Roo's? (circia 1996)
Well this is them remade!
We discovered these in Jackson Hole and both had talked about them ever since.
I'm generally against buying prepackaged cookies,etc. cause they are just pure junk food and we don't need that but since I knew the snow was coming I made an exception.
No regrets, amazing.

A sweet little girl in my class had cut out Aussie like puppies out of a magazine and has randomly placed them around my desk and reading table as a surprise. So cute and can't help but smile when I open my book and find a puppy pic from a sweet student!

Can't help but be grateful for the extra sleep-in time and of course extra puppy snuggles. We've played and played and enjoyed covering up and going to bed last night. Now I need to get to a few of the 1,000 papers I have to grade. Considering my "teacher/school" bag is still in my car since coming home Tuesday I got to pick it up a bit!

And finally, it's Valentine's Day, excited to give Drew his "One in a Minion" treats this afternoon. Not sure what our evening holds but looking forward to possibly a yummy dinner or something. 
Have a great Valentine's and wonderful weekend!

{50 Days} Into My Most Healthy Habit Ever!

Well almost 50 days...
In the beginning of January I blogged about reading the Bible
from cover to cover in 2014.
I wanted to give an update on how it is going.

It is going amazingly and I feel so motivated about it!
Each morning after Drew leaves for work I make a cup of coffee and have some quiet time and read.
I've learned to love this time and look forward to it.
The house is quiet and my mind clear--
it is a time I cherish to focus and absorb my reading. 

When I first heard about this Bible plan I was scared, intimidated, nervous, etc.
Basically I thought I could never do this past 4 days.

Then our church started a new series to fire off the new year.

It was titled "You Won't If You Don't" and I took that heart.
I won't read the Bible if I don't do it.

I decided to give this an honest effort and I'm so happy I did.
I know this sounds petty but already in church the past few weeks when a verses are quoted I'm not trying to read the screen or quickly find in on my phone-- I'm recognizing it and that is a pretty cool feeling.

Each day you read a small part from Psalms and Proverbs and a Gospel (Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John--but one at a time). You also read a chapter or two from another book. Currently I'm finishing up Exodus and really learning about the 10 Commandment. 

I use the You Version One Year Bible Plan.
I have it on my phone and Kindle and it keeps up with it daily.
If you miss a day that's okay-- this app helps keep it listed under each day so it isn't overwhelming and the best part is when you do your reading it tells you what percent of the Bible you have read.
Watching that number increase and knowing that I'm learning and growing is the best feeling. 

I would encourage anyone to try it. I've always heard 21 days make a habit--go for it!

For My One In A Minion {Valentine's Day}

With Valentine's Day tomorrow I thought I would share what my sweetheart can look forward to.
We've never been big on Valentine's and usually keep it pretty low key.
I think surprising each other randomly through out the year is much more exciting and special than one day.

I did want to do something but not go over-the-top. I made him this little goodie bag.

I collected some of his favorite treats and made a card. 
I also got him signed up for the "Dollar Shave Club". He's been searching for a new razor so I thought this could be a cool way to try something he might like. 

Drew is all about some micro-brews and craft beer. 
I snagged these earlier in the week since I knew most likely we'd be snowed in.
The "yellow snow IPA" just had to be his!

I also dipped some pretzels in white chocolate, his favorite.
Add some peppermint and festive sprinkles and boom, V-Day treat!

I added some beer nuts to go with the brew, Swedish Fish and Twizzlers then put it all in a red bag.
I'm sure he will like it and enjoy some of his loot this weekend.

Wednesday Randoms {and more snow}

Well the snow is a falling and by the looks of a six day weekend is here.
We were out of school today because we are under a winter storm warning.
We've seen lots of weather weather advisories but I can't remember a winter storm warning so we are loaded up on can goods, toilet paper, and beer and prepared to be snowed in for a bit.

I totally found myself joining the other East Tennesseans at the grocery store yesterday.
Here in the south we just can't handle the snow. 
I'm not sure what our deal is but we all get nervous-
buys lots of bread and milk (I don't even like milk but bought plenty), made sure I plenty of dog food for the fur child, and Drew picked up extra beer on his way home.
(that's his contribution to the fridge in prep of the mini blizzard)

We have the prediction of anywhere to 3-7 inches of snow. Remember two weeks ago we got two inches of snow and were pretty much shut in for a week. So I don't think we will be back in for the remainder of this week at school and we are already off Monday. Right now the wind is swirling and blowing snow like crazy and I've already made camp in my favorite sweat shirt and have enjoyed so much coffee I'm a bit jittery yet still want more.  #addiction

Last night we got some "chicken cordon blue" or whatever it's called from Fresh Market and I whipped up some sides. It was delicious! Given my asparagus wasn't nearly as healthy as it should have been since I covered it in sauce with zero guilt, it was amazing. The Fresh Market has a ton of $2.99 deals on Tuesday and we got the asparagus for $2.99 for 2 pounds and the two chicken breast ready to pop into the for $2.99 and I could barely eat half. Yay, for an easy dinner!

A few weeks ago I shared a home tour on the blog. 
I got several e-mails, comments, etc. about how clean it was. Just wanted to share an honest pic that is slightly embarrassing but shows that although I'm OCD about cleaning, I'm totally human and a mess from time to time.  The counter is covered with mail and other crap as well as three jackets piled on top of one chair, the couch cushions a mess cause Copper keeps walking on them, and I could go on.

Since I was off today and the snow just rolled in a bit after 2:00 I went to school to clean-up my classroom since I probably won't be back for a week and work on some papers while throwing Copper's frisbee down the hall every 90 seconds. Grabbed a quick lunch with my mom at my favorite deli/coffee shop and then tackled that mess of a kitchen and cleaned up since I'll be indoors for a few days. I'm looking forward to finishing some blog post I've been working on and spending 24/7 in cozy socks and comfy layers.  In the meantime I'm enjoying the crockpot smells that are filling the house with my sleepy Copper next to me kicking his legs and dreaming away!

Make-Up Find

Okay, I've been debating with myself if I should buy the Urban Decay Naked eye shadow or not. I love make-up and like one of my 5th graders love to try and play with new finds.
I don't mind spending more on my powder or a good BB cream but $50+ for eye shadow is way more that I usually spend. Most of my eye shadows are from Victoria Secret and I absolutely love them!
Saturday at Target I came across this gem:

This is the Physician Formulas Nude pallet. It is amazing and all the earthy browns I love plus a great light shimmer.

It was $10 at Target and worth every penny! So glad I waited and didn't splurge!
Thought I would share this great deal with all my make-up loving blogging friends!

Our weekend and weekly menu

As always, the weekend went by quickly.
Friday night was less than eventful. We went to a bonfire which I usually love but considering it was in the low 20's outside and we had a hard time getting the fire started I was longing for a hot bath!

Saturday morning we found out that my sweet Grandma was helping host a pancake breakfast at a local restaurant for a great cause so we showed up and surprised her. It was fun to see her in "action" and the place was packed! So packed we sat for over half an hour and couldn't get anything to eat they were so full. We didn't mind since it was for a great cause and let them keep the ten bucks and we walked over to Panera Bread next door. I forgot how yummy it is!

I had this yummy spinach and bacon dish with a coffee.
When we went to "fix" up our coffees and they had ground cinnamon to sprinkle in. I forgot how yummy cinnamon is in coffee. This could help with my creamer addiction. 

Since I didn't have a whole lot to do I decided to swing into Target. I still had some $ left on a Starbucks card I had gotten as a Christmas gift from a sweet kiddo so got yet another coffee. For the first time, EVER, I didn't find any clothes that I just "had" to have at Target.

Now this little number did catch my eye. I seriously can't believe this is shorts. The inseam was -2 inches. (yes, negative)
I got caught taking a pic of these by another shopper and she laughed out loud too. 
Even when I was 16 and wore "short shorts" I would NEVER have worn this. My bikini has better coverage. 

Saturday night we went to dinner just us.
We went to this neat pizza place and pub downtown and enjoyed some yummy brews and a meat overload pizza while watching the Olympics. (Which the U.S.A. is KILLING it in slope style!!!)
Being the adults we are, we rented Despicable Me II on the way home.
We made a drink and started the movie around 10:00, which I should have known was past our bedtime.
Well I woke up at 1:30 with the t.v. off, my drink melted, and all three of us (Copper of course) passed out on the couch. Wild and crazy Saturday!

Sunday after church I ran into Publix (where I didn't do well at all with my coupons this time) and snagged some goods for dinners this week.

Drew said he had a special request for dinner and I got excited thinking I was going to cook something neat only to find out he really wants hot dogs. So we had hot dogs tonight with tots and they were pretty yummy.
Here is what we I will be cooking this week:

Tuesday// baked chicken, rosemary potatoes, veggies
Wednesday//a new recipe from the blog Hello Newlywed Life
This is a yummy pasta recipe that I can toss in the crock pot and serve with steamed broc
Thursday// Small Group T.B.D.
Friday// possible heart shaped pizza from Papa Murphy's ?!

Keep my kiddos (and myself) in your thoughts tomorrow as we are SUPPOSED to take the state writing assessment but it looks as if weather could be a problem again. This has been canceled once and we would really, really like to get this behind us--we'll see!

Have a great week!!

Friday //5/

//Friday Five//

It is Friday, finally.
This hasn't been a bad week by any means but I'm so happy the weekend is here.
Sounds pathetic, but this is the first full week I've worked in a while.
I'm looking forward to a lot of nothing this weekend!
A lot of cooking breakfast, staying in pj's longer than I should, and going for a long walk if Mother Nature permits.

//1/ This Monday was supposed to be our state writing assessment. Since we were out pretty much the whole week prior they postponed it and gave us this week to help prepare. I'm definitely thankful for that time and I'll be even more thankful when this test is behind us. Most of all I'm so thankful my class has kept such a great attitude and continue to work so hard. They deserve the #1 spot for sure!

//2/ This week the weather wasn't AS bad as last week. I'm so grateful for the little bit of time we got to spend outside and the evening walks/jogs/runs. I'm wanting spring so bad I can't stand it! In the mean time I'll take all the above freezing days as possible.

//3/ I need to do a post about how the yearly Bible reading plan is going. I'm so excited and really feeling motivated with my reading habit. Almost 40 days into and the app says "8% complete" and that feels so good. I'm familiar with the stories but didn't really know them so I feel so excited to read parts that I recognize and grow what I already knew. The Bible reading has been something I've been so intimidated about for so long and now I truly don't know what I was so worried about.

//4/  Next week is Valentines Day. I honestly don't care much about the "holiday" and believe you should treat your other like Valentines Day-everyday. But being in an elementary setting I can't help but get excited for this cheesy holiday because the kids get so fired up about it. I do look forward to exchanging cute little cards and maybe make some homemade ones. Gotta love crafts!

//5/  As tired as I am from getting back in the groove this week I'm grateful for Drew being home all this week and that we both get to go to jobs that we love and feel passionate about. Even though Wednesday night I was ready for bed at 7:30 I'm thankful that I got to spend my day working with great teachers and kiddos in an awesome school. I was starting to complain about how tired I was but then I started thinking about WHY I was tired and what had been accomplished that day and realized I would be so ungrateful to not be thankful for what took place (and took my energy ha).

Here's to the weekend!!!

Homemade Chicken Enchiladas

We love Mexican food in our house!
This chicken enchilada recipe I've been making and tweaking for years, it is so yummy!

This is what you'll need:
/one pound or two cups of cooked (boiled) chicken pulled apart/ one small can of diced green chilies/ 2 cups of chicken broth/ 3 tablespoons of butter/ 3 tablespoons of flour/ one cup of fat free sour cream/ 2 cups of cheese divided (I used a Mexican blend)/ 10 large wraps of your choice

This is optional but oh so delicious:
I add a can of Rotel tomatoes to our enchiladas as well as a can of black beans rinsed

First I combine all the ingredients for the "inside" of my enchiladas.
I have the boiled chicken pulled apart, one cup of cheese, rinsed black beans, and Rotel.

Next I fill my wraps. 
I used about half a cup per wrap.

I place the filled enchiladas in a lightly sprayed casserole dish.

Now for the delicious sauce!

Melt 3 tablespoons of butter in a sauce pan.

Once the butter is melted, add 3 tablespoons of flour.
This will be super thick. Keep mixing this for about a minute.

Next add the chicken broth and with a whisk stir well.
About two minutes or so.
Once all the way mixed add the sour cream and green chilies. 

Keep the temp on a low simmer here.
(If this boils you stand a chance of the sour cream becoming chunky, gross!)

Pour sauce over enchiladas.
It will look like a lot of liquid, it will cook down.

Add remaining cup of cheese.

Bake at 350 for 25 minutes or until golden brown.
Once cooked, allow to sit for about 5 minutes.

This recipe is delicious and one of our favorites. 
I like to add a bit of salsa on top.
So good!!
