At least in the blog world.

I think when I get back to classes I fall off the edge of the planet, I'm taking less credits then I did last semester and I can't figure out what is wrong with me and blogging. I'm not sure if it's the fact that I have class until 7 PM three nights a week and then have to be up at 10 PM to be to work and to be honest at that point nothing is more important to me then going home and cuddling with the puppy to get a couple hours of a sleep. I have been majorly slacking in cooking...sorry Big-D! His mom who I love very much has been sending over meals...

In my free time (haha free time what is that), I have found lots of things to do.

The drywall in the living room is up...finally. OMG I am so happy to not have furniture in my hallway, bedroom, office and any random other place that I had it. Like seriously it's nice to be able to use our second TV so I don't have to watch that basketball game I could careless about. It isn't finished yet, going to have them do it all at once and we have one more room to put new drywall up in. Hopefully by the end of March I will be able to paint!

I got a microwave for Christmas, because my mom is awesome like that. I wish I had known they were into buying appliances because I would have asked for a new washer and dryer. (They got me a brand new refrigerator for Christmas last year.) Well it sat in the middle of my kitchen floor for 4 weeks before I finally got annoyed enough to put it up! That was an I operation not a we operation, I literally did the whole thing by myself (up until I needed to actually install it)...

Hank and I have been crazy busy, we started an agility class and I don't know about his agility thing. I thought it would be fun and it is fun but I have a what I am going to call an ADHD dog and he gets bored very very easily and when he gets bored I hear about it.

Speaking of Hank he turns ONE!!! on March 1st. I feel like I am going to have to make him a cake and have a little party for him...

Okay, I have a couple of planned posts just need pictures and to finish them up. Hopefully I won't disappear again..

Chicken Potatoes & Beans

I've been trying to meal plan a little more, which means that we eat more at home then we do out. This is great it saves us a lot of money and it's better for us. It is kind of hard though mainly because with me back in school I don't get home on Tuesday and Thursday night until after 7, I then have to be back up at 10pm to be to work at 11pm. This is usually what happens, hmmm take an hour to cook, eat and clean up get an hour and half of sleep or get McDonald's and get two and half hours of sleep...can you see what usually wins? 

I've have been trying to make up some simple meals that I can make the night before and either have Big-D through in the oven when he gets home from work or in the crock pot before he goes to work. 

Place 3 to 4 chicken breast, potatoes and green beans in a oven safe si

Add butter and Italian dressing

Bake at 350° for one hour. 

  • 3 to 4 Chicken Breast

  1. Place chicken, green beans and potatoes into oven safe dish.
  2. Add butter and Italian dressing.
