Quick Question

Take a trip back into your childhood. . . Which one of these does not belong?

Just doin a little lazy Friday night internet surfing and this made me laugh.  :)

Another question, should I get any of these haircuts?  I'm thinking none of these. . . I'll keep looking.

Recipe Review: Chicken & Cheese Lasagna Roll-Up

There are so many yummy looking/sounding recipes on Pinterest and I find tons that I'd love to try.  So, I'm going to start trying some of them.

I recently made this recipe for Chicken & Cheese Lasagna Roll-Ups.  It looks so good to me but ultimately it was kind of a bust.  

This recipe was on the easy side.  You cook the chicken ahead of time and mix it up with various cheese and a little milk. Then you spoon some of the mixture onto a cooked lasagna noodle and roll it up and bake it in the oven.  You pour spaghetti sauce over it before you bake it but it still turns out pretty dry.  The cheese just didn't really melt and so the roll ups were pretty dry.  That was our main complaint with this dish, it just wasn't amazing.

So, there ya have it, maybe you can improve upon this recipe but I don't think I'll make it again as is.

365 Update

Hey Friends,

I've been keeping up with taking my 365 pictures and usually end up loading them in batches (sorry).  So, as of right this second (the second of me writing this, not the second that you're reading this because I don't know when you're reading this) I am all up to date on my 365 pictures.

You can scroll back through January and then view February's pics on my profile.  I know there are a lot of pictures of Micah, but really. . . I spent pretty much every second with him so it's only natural that he ends up in a lot of my pictures.  Plus Curtis usually doesn't want to be in my pictures.  He sometimes picks on me about taking my 365 picture every day.  But when he does that I threaten to put him IN the picture and then he lets me be.  :)

Anyway, Happy Friday and I hope ya'll have a great weekend.  Toodles - Stef

Learning to Crawl

Micah has been wanting to crawl for a few weeks now and has been pretty close for the last few days.  This past weekend, everyone was saying how it would be any day now, and on Sunday he figured it out.

Here is Micah's crawling debut!!

He's figured it out, but it hasn't really become his main mode of transportation yet.  He still need a little encouragement, but I'm sure he'll be crawling all around this house in days.

Sooo YUMMY!!

I've decided to try a few recipes I've found on Pinterest and I decided to make a Mexican soup called Albondigas Soup tonight and it was amazing.  It is so delish, I can't even tell you!  Curtis and I had several bowls.  The recipe is from this cooking blog.  It has meatballs, bell peppers, carrots, potatoes, and lots and lots of yumminess.

It was a lot of work, but I think it wouldn't take me as long next time now that I know what all goes in it.  You mix the meatballs first and cook them separately, then cut up all your vegetables and start the soup.  It would be a great recipe for a weekend since you can take your time to prepare it.  It's not really something you can whip up in 30 minutes.

Either way, it is super yummy and I can't wait to have this again!!

Heads up, I'm trying another recipe from Pinterest tomorrow for V-day, I'll let you know if it's yummy.

Where Is She?!

Why OH Why haven't I been blogging?!  This is something I ask myself regularly; as do some of you.  I hate that I've been so MIA on my blog.  I love updating my blog.  I don't know what the deal is, but just to give you an update on what's been going on. . . . here are the cliff notes:
  • Christmas
  • New Years
  • 6 month photoshoot with Micah
  • Family visits
  • Dryer died
  • Family visits
  • Baby cutting teeth
  • Bible study on Mondays
  • Help host a bachelorette party
  • Attend a baby shower
  • Family visits
  • Dinner with cousins
  • Play date(s)
  • Out of town wedding
  • Play date(s)
  • Family visits
And that is where I'm at today.  I want to update you with lots of pics and fun stuff but it's late and tomorrow I have a play date in the morning, my mom is coming over and my hubby and I have a dinner date thingy at church. . . then Saturday is family time with my parents.  Maybe Sunday I can post lots of stuff.  I'll try to make that my priority.

Well, I hope you still love me even though I haven't been blogging. . . or updating my 365 pictures (I HAVE been taking my 365 pictures).   In the mean time, I'll leave you with a pic of my cutie pie! (Well, both of them!)

Tweet Tweet Says The Bird

So I now speak in cute little sentences from all the baby books I'm reading to my son daily (hence the title). . . I'm just kidding of course.

ANYWAYS, I wanted to tell you about the most adorable and perfect little bird houses that my brother-in-law builds and is now selling.  He's a talented dude and I know his birdhouses are very well built.  As he put it, even the little birdies need a home.  You can buy your little neighborhood birdies a house for $25.

I have my eye on the one on the back right, so you can have it you want, but if not I'm going to take it.  If you're interested in one, message me here or email me at stefstallings [at] gmail [dot] com and I'll get you the info.

OH and he made the most fabulous birdhouse for my mom, with a picket fence, and a tin roof, and it has several levels and is painted green and it's awesome.  So, if you want to place a custom order, I'm sure he could accommodate.
