The thing I'm obsessed with

I LOVE aprons they are just so fantastic and awesome!  Sadly, I only have two that I can use at the moment but I plan to remedy that soon lol. I tried to explain what they mean to me to my mom and my husband, but they never understood, and it doesn't help that I could explain it well enough but I recently read a blog post titled Apron Evangelism from Hillbilly Housewife. It explained how I felt about them and inspired me even more about wearing them.  After I showed it to my mother and husband they finally understand my love now.  I went searching on google for apron patterns and there are a TON of them it's so hard to choose from them all.

The recipe for today is what I'm making for dinner on Monday:

Taco Soup
1 lb lean ground beef
1 (28 oz) can of tomatoes (3-4 cups)
1 (17 oz) can whole kernel corn
2 cups of water
1 sm. onion
1 (15 oz) can kidney or black beans
2-3 tblsp taco seasoning
Brown ground beef and onion. Mix in with remaining ingredients. Simmer for 15 minutes. Serve with tortilla chips or Fritos. Serves 8.

Anyway I have to go back to cleaning the stove. I decided at midnight the stove needed to be deep cleaned and I took it apart and scrubbed and scrubbed and it looks shiny! Although I had to soak the metal parts under the burners all night and I still have to scrub them but the Hubbs loved the kitchen when he got up to go to work this morning so it made it all worthwhile.

Thanks for checking back!

Chirstmas Time

Gah! It's Christmas time! I've been ready for Christmas since before Halloween.  However, I have next to nothing put up for Christmas other than a wreath that My Hubs' company sent us (that was so sweet). Everything else is either still on boxes or haven't been baought yet (like the tree!) Hopefully we're going to buy it on the 16th along with a tree skirt (no time to make one right now).... and lights.... and the base... What are you talking about I'm prepared. Yeah right like anyone would believe that lol!

Seriously A Homemaker (love her!) has a really pretty matle that I just LOVE and it's not a traditional Christmas green and red, however it is red, but I'm not alway one for tradition. and she said she didn't go shopping for it and that she just "shopped" around her house.  Here is the mantle isn't it pretty?

Make it and Love it has a ton of fun tutorials for christmas also! She uses her Silhouette alot and I really wish I have one but it isn't going to happen anytime soon. Here are some of her projects: framed wall vinylStockingstree skirt,and burlap stockings.

I'm running out of time now before Lily starts demanding for iCarly, believe it or not it was my husband who got her addicted to it, and I still need to finnish folding the laundry lol. So tata for now!
