    Disobedient Scout

    Scout is in SO much trouble.  I specifically told him not to grow up on me.  AND I specifically told him that he had to stay tiny so that he could cuddle with me forever. But he grew up on me anyway, just like his older brother.  In fact, I bet Nathan is the one who taught him. Scout has grown up so much so, that he is ONE YEAR old today! How did this happen?  Where has the time gone?  He went from this big tiny baby… And grew into this behemoth! Well. I guess there was no way around it, but I’m happy with the little boy he…

    11 Years Ago

    11 years ago, I became a mother for the first time.  I was young and there were many judgments surrounding my pregnancy, however, they were all taken away when my first knuckle head came into the world on May 25, 2001 @ 1:08pm.   He weighed 8 lbs 1oz. His name is Nathan Tyler. Over the last 11 years, this kid has been my little buddy.  He went from teeny tiny feet, to feet that are the same size as mine!  And I have a big foot for a being a short lady.  Size 8-9!  Needless to say, I couldn’t have asked for a better kid.  He has turned into the…

    5 Recipes That I Must Make

    My oven is out of service this week.  Eek! (Insert the Dun, dun, dun music) Via Why? Cause it’s broken.  AND because it is broken, it made me have to look for recipes that could be cooked on the stove top only.  While I was browsing for the goodies, I came across these inspiring dishes.   I have forgotten about the Tamale Pie dish from childhood, but I would like to make this twist on it. I’m making these tonight for the first time!    I want to know how the heck this is made.  This would be really handy in my small kitchen. I’m totally in love with this…

    Awkward Family Photo

    Maybe most of you know about a book titled, Awkward Family Photos, and maybe some of you don’t.  It’s a really funny book of family pictures gone terribly wrong, and it has given Bubba and I a good laugh many times. You should definitely check it out one day. {Via} {Via} Any HOO, I am talking about this book because Bubba and I have our own picture that went terribly wrong.   This picture was meant to be a cute picture of the kids with Bubba while we were hanging out in our room shortly after Scout was born, but as you will be able to see, the picture just…

    Moles

    Dear Karma, once again you win.   The very day after I had boasted about my wonderful vegetable garden, I awakened the next morning, to mole trails!! Karma: 1  Liz: 0 Moles. I hate them.  These pesky rodents took out 2 of my lettuce plants and a pepper plant. Talk about lighting a fire underneath my butt. I just stood there, overlooking my garden, mouth agape.  I didn’t know what to do.   So what do you do when you need to know something?  You google it.  BUT of course, you need magic fairy dust to get rid of these bastards because basically you have to hunt them or put a…
