Adios 2011…. Hola 2012

Share via email

I was reflecting on 2011 yesterday.  I was trying to figure out where it went south… 

Then it hit me. 

2011 may have been the best year EVER! 

We were minutes away from losing our Fawn Girl… 

Thankfully, she is still stealing my underwear & climbing on the dining room table.

Dad’s sinus infection was really acute leukemia…

Now he is in remission & made the most fantastic meatballs for Christmas…

My big boy started school(!)

And my little guy’s digestive problems have disappeared….

All in all, 2011 could have really sucked out loud.  However, I would be lying if I didn’t say I am hoping for a much more relaxed 2012… 

Here is to wishing us all a safe, happy & healthy 2012. 

How to Make a Ton of Cookies in Minutes

Share via email

I love to make cookies.  I always hated the part where I tried to ball the cookies to put on the baking sheet.  Inevitably, I would eat a bunch as my fingers got all sticky.

Well, my angst has ended.  I have found the answer to my cookie-making prayers. 

I use a melon baller, or as Pampered Chef calls it – the Medium Scoop.  It is fantastic & makes cookie baking a cinch – especially if you leave your dough to soften up a bit.  (I used the big ol’ jug of cookie dough from BJ’s, but have also had success with home made cookies.)

I highly recommend it!

Hey!  Sorry, I was off yesterday & I have been bad about planning for the blog lately (this has made my resolution list, though)….

On the positive, though, look at what Max, Daddy & Uncle Loren created? Is it a masterpiece or what?!?!

Poor Uncle Loren – he keeps getting drafted for the sit-for-hours-on-the-floor projects….

Third Time is the Charm…

So, for the third time this week I have had a breakfast brought to you by McDonalds…. I am now out $15.00 & my jeans are a little snug, if you get my drift….

Well, we finally moved. 

Here is my new abode…. cozy with a window…..  Now, I just have to unpack the boxes UNDER the desk….

Dizee’s Little Projects : The Cabinets

Share via email

This whole transformation took about 45 kid-free minutes.

  Apparently I am a horder of expired food.  Who knew?

The Cabinets Before - the door didn't sit flush!

An Organized Cabinet = Exciting!!!!

My favorite shelf was the one that looks like it was going to crack... classy

Look at all this extra real-estate!


The moral of the story? Little pieces at a time…..

Well, I splurged.  $4.99 for McDonald’s Oatmeal & a Diet Coke…. Fantastic!

  Back to cleaning & moving!

Dizee Is Surrounded

Well, I relaxed this weekend (BAD DIZEE!) We finished our Christmas shopping & I watched two movies (Tangled & Transformers 3)!  I also ate terribly & didn’t write up any posts (although I do have a bunch of things to write about – Grocery Shopping , my Mini Meatloves & my cabinets…exciting, right?)

And now I have to work on moving my desk & 8 years of paperwork downstairs…. BOO!
