My Current Undertaking: The Unfinished Projects Box

     My weekend goal is to complete as many unfinished projects as I can. And this basket is where a lot of them end up for months... or years... Has anyone else started something and not yet finished it? I encourage you to join me in a quest to finish what we started. (Even if that means throwing it in the trash if it's a lost cause!) I currently have three quilts started. And I started two of them when I was in high school...probably 6+ years ago! I post this now b/c I want to show what I've accomplished (you know, the whole accountability thing). So, I'll be in my craft room enjoying the hobbies that I love!!

Smoothies, Pizza and Tunanus!!

I make this smoothie every morning that I can for my husband. He loves them! He drinks the big glass as breakfast, and I drink the small glass as a snack because I eat breakfast hours before him.

Strawberry Banana Smoothies
4 frozen strawberries
10 frozen raspberries, or 1 frozen strawberry
1 banana
3/4 c milk
1/2 scoop protein powder (I use Whey Chocolate)

Place all ingredients in blender and blend until a "tornado" spins in the center of the smoothie.
Pour smoothie into glass.
Add a little bit of cold water to the blender and blend remaining "stuck" smoothie.
Pour into small glass.

These are so easy, and so easy to personalize!

Bagel Thins Pizza
Bagel thins
Olive Oil
Pizza Sauce (We love Boboli)
Shredded cheese
Toppings: mushrooms, bacon bits, pepperoni, turkey pepperoni, pineapple...

Preheat oven to 375. Brush bagel thins with a little bit of olive oil. Place on cookie sheet and toast in oven about 5 min. (Just until slightly crisp) Remove from oven. If kids are topping their own, remove from hot cookie sheet. Top with pizza sauce, cheese and desired toppings. Heat in oven about 10 minutes or until cheese is melted.

 My husband created this one to cut back on carbs. He calls it a tuna canoe, or Tunanu for short.

Tuna salad and romaine lettuce

My tuna salad: 2 cans tuna, 2 hard boiled eggs, mayo w/ olive oil, pepper, onion flakes, sesame seeds, sweet relish... I pretty much mix whatever sounds good, and in amounts that make it the consistency that I want. Place in middle of lettuce and enjoy!

It's a blizzard out there!!

It's snowing! A lot! Who knows if we'll get the 12 inches they're forcasting, but we're getting enough that my work closed early. Only had to work 3 hours today at the library. It amazes me that parents bring their kids to story time on snowy days like this. Would you bring your precious little ones out in bad weather?? So here I am at home spending the day with my husband, and doggies, and I'm also doing some crafts!! I'll post pics of all of them soon.

I know, I'm still alive! I haven't posted in over a month. Time flies and I've been busy. We've cleaned our house from top to bottom to show it, but either the people don't show, or postpone because of this lovely snow. Snow is so pretty (as long as I'm in my warm house). It's all white and blowing everywhere. I know my father-in-law was going sledding with my nieces and nephews. And my dogs love running around in the snow... they come in with white noses and covered in snow.

Life is good right now and I can't complain. I am blessed with a wonderful husband, a nice warm home and many friends and family that mean so much to me. Thank you Lord for loving me.
