It's finished! Finally after a move and a semester of school I present to you the desk. It took a fair amount of time detailing the drawers of this beauty, and a special thanks needs to go to my husband for helping me move it out side and in and for letting me paint it exactly as I want. (You are wonderful).
So here it is before
Now I just need the weather to heat up so I can finish painting the dresser. It is moments like these that make me want to live in Arizona when Brett is done with school.
Are there any projects you are going to be working on when the weather gets better?
I saw the cutest thing the other day. Their was a guy in the candle section of a store picking out candles and candle holders for a special occasion You could tell he hadn't done this before. It was so sweet of him to want to do something special for his sweet heart.
I am not that great at preparing for holidays (at least not at this time), so this Valentines we are keeping it simple wich includes gifts. We don't really give gifts on valentines day. We give treats. Hubby is getting his favorite Doritos and Sobe drink. Thankfully pinterest has ways to cuteify these treats.
I am so excited to give this to him. He has no idea and I have never manage to come up with a gift that I don't feel like I should double check with him before I buy it. What is he doing for Valentines day? Well, I had a craving for Olive Garden the other week so he made us a reservation. This makes me happy because it means he pays attention to what I say and actually remembers sometimes! That makes me feel loved.
This is a little recipe that is great for a girl with little time to cook and little experience in the kitchen (aka. me).
1/5 lb. Ground beef
1/4 c. Chopped Onion
1 1/2 c. Water
1 can (16 oz.)Kidney beans
1 can (16 oz.) Stewed Tomatoes
1 can (8 oz) Tomato Sauce
2 Tbs. Taco Seasoning
1 Small Avocado (optional)
Grated Chedar Cheese
Sour Cream (you can substitute plain yogurt)
What you do:
Brown ground beef. Drain off the fat. Add the water, tomatoes, beans, tomato sauce, onion and taco seasoning. Cover it and let it simmer for 15 minuets. Put it in your individual bowl and top it off with cheese, corn chips, sour cream and avocado.
I have the ground beef pre cooked and frozen so I just take out a bag and defrost it in the microwave before adding it in. This saves me a ton of same day cooking time.
This recipe is very yummy and filling. Plus it makes left overs and is easy to double if your family eats allot. Most importantly both me and my husband like it.
