Oh a cluster of things!

I am proud to be an American and grateful that I have the freedom and ability to VOTE!  It was Adam's first time this year, so we made documentation.  See our "I voted!" stickers?

Man, I can't wait 'til my face isn't puffy anymore.  I want to take pictures of us to capture the fun we're having in this time of our lives but I'm hesitant because my face makes me look ridiculous.  Oh well, it could be worse.

Last week I made a little something Adam calls "Biscuit Baskets," or also known as "Barbecue Biscuits."

Mmmm...  Are you ready for this?  It's super easy!  (I love those words when we're talking about making dinner by the way!)

Biscuit Baskets

  • Regular sized cupcake pan
  • 1 1/2 lb. hamburger
  • 1 tbsp onion powder
  • 1 cup barbecue sauce
  • 2-3 tbsp brown sugar
  • Worchestershire sauce
  • ketchup
  • mustard
  • 2 cans regular sized biscuits
  • shredded cheddar cheese
  • Preheat oven to 400o.
  • Brown hamburger and drain.  Lightly saltAdd onion powder, barbecue sauce, and brown sugar.  Sprinkle Worchestershire sauce, ketchup, and mustard - taste as you go to add the amount desired, not a lot.
  • Grease cupcake pan.
  • Open first biscuit can, take 2 biscuits out and flatten together.  Lay in cupcake pan and push in so it's secure.  Continue until you use all the biscuits in both cans.  Put in meat mixture.  Top with shredded cheddar cheese.
  • Bake at 400o for 10-12 minutes.
  • Enjoy!

The day of the 5K came and has gone (Nov 6).  I was reluctant, but I did it!  I ran (well actually jogged and sometimes walked) the 3 miles in about 40 or 45 minutes!  I think that was a pretty good accomplishment for me and my lack of running.  Now that I've done a 5K I don't ever have to do another one!  Haha.  Should've gotten a picture...  Oh well.

Things are coming along with my new business!  (Modestly Formal -  If you don't know what I'm talking about, you missed this post, check it out!  I haven't fully received any dresses yet, so if you want to be the first or second or third to help me out and donate a dress or two, please by all means feel free!  :)

I bought some car stickers for our windows for advertisement:

We shall see what fun this brings!  :)


  1. Ya, Did I miss something... I am a horrible friend?

  2. Girl...When i get a cute modest formal dress for whatever...or know of anyone who wants to donate... you are the first person i will think of!!! This is so awsome you are doing this! Proud of You! p.s. love the car sticker!

  3. Last year I cleaned out closets and donated about 6 formals to a local formals-rental charity... if I only knew earlier!!! Oh well, good luck to you in your new venture!

  4. Linsday and Shelly- One of the medicines I'm currently taking for my Ulcerative Colitis is the culprit of my puffy face. Puffy-faceness is one of the side effects. :( I'll be completely off of it in a few weeks so hopefully this clears up real soon!


I'd love to hear from you!
