Updates to my bio!

I've added an inspiration section to my bios! Check it out! Mostly it's BABY room pictures. But there are some killer laundry rooms and misc. stuff too! Have fun! I hope to update it often, but I'm sure you know how that goes! :)

Here's one of the pictures:

Mexican Friday! - TJC Nachos

TJC Nachos! Yummmy!

What you'll need:

Grocery List:

  • 1 lbs ground beef
  • Flour Tortillas 8"
  • Mozzarella cheese
  • Queso Blanco cheese (optional but highly, highly recommended)
  • Lettuce
  • Tomato
  • Sour Cream
  • Taco seasoning
  • P.A.M.

Cumin is my newest favoritist (I know it's not a word) spice! If you don't have this in your pantry, I'd pick it up the next time your thinking about making ANYTHING mexican!

Brown the meat with mexican seasoning

Crisp up the tortillas with the P.A.M. spray on both sides

Add cheese and melt in microwave if needed & add your lettuce, tomatoes, sour cream & any extra cheese or toppings you want (onions?!) Sprinkle alittle cumin on top for taste and to make pretty. Serve! You may need a knife and fork! FYI! Enjoy!

The back of our house BEFORE:

Notice the small pine bush. It looks alittle dead at the bottom. Anyone know how to make it grown at the bottom again???

Started playing with the pavers we got from Menards for $ 0.33 each!

Now AFTER: (Please ignore the part were our dog decided to play in)

I'm hoping to have a hydranga bush put in at this corner soon.

I swear it doesn't look that curved in person...I'll be straighting that out a.s.a.p!

Please excuse the door mat on the patio railing and my tiki torches that need to be trashed!

We still need to do this side but you get the idea!

This is the spot Molly (our mini black lab) decided she wanted to play in. Gotta love the pets!

My roses -no bloom :(

All the pavers and mulch we still have to use in other places around the yard! It's about 1/2 of what I bought!

Josh trimmed the hedges into 4 seprate bushes instead of the 1 HUGE one. I wish we could take them all out! :) See my shadow???

This is in our front yard (right side) We were thinking about putting some pavers around it. I think it's going to be a mess to do, but will be worth it in the end!
The view from my front porch looking out:

Our back yard view from the right side of the house. Yet another shadow of me!
The hill I hope to one day cover in flowers and ivy (not poison ivy!)

A bush my mom bought me (sits up on the level part of the privacy hill)
