A great blog I just HAD to share

Go check out!

She's got ton's of fantastic tips, links for coupons and freebies, and a wealth of other great information. I love all the stuff she posts! Unfortunately for me, my work computer has a lot blocked, including java (which you need to print all the great coupons).

Another great thing about her blog, is 90% of it isn't geared towards just DFW Metroplex stuff. Most of it is links to stuff that anyone can us.

Please note, she posts a lot of new stuff everyday and it's hard to keep up. I have her blog loaded to my Google Reader so I can skim thru all the posts and click on the one's that interest me.

Hope you enjoy it too!

Bacon Cheeseburger Hot Pockets

Thanks to my friend, Mert, I've discovered a yummy, easy new recipe! Bacon Cheeseburger hot pockets. These were the easiest thing to make and the boys devowered them!

1 lb hamburger
1 small onion (chopped)
1 cup bacon (or about 1/2 a package)
shredded cheese
1 can buttermilk biscuits

While I defrosted my ground beef in the microwave, I cooked up my bacon in a skillet. After that's been cooked and the grease has been poured out I started browning my ground beef. I added my chopped onions and chopped bacon into this mixture.

You then flatten out the biscuits onto a cooking sheet. Layer ketchup, a spoonful of your meat mixture and then sprinkle with some shredded cheese. Fold into pockets and bake for about 15 minutes in a 400 degree oven.

I think my boys may have found their new favorite dinner. I can't wait to try some different varieties of this as well. Hamburger with swiss cheese, onions, & mushrooms would be yummy. Another one I can't make to make is hamburger, bacon, and blue cheese bits! You could also make a breakfast variety of this as well with some sausage and egg. Easy, easy, easy!

This is the boys new 'thing'

I guess it's been about 6 weeks or 2 months now. The boys want to sleep in the same bed. So cute. It started when they were in their bunkbeds and they asked if they could sleep together on the top bunk (there's a tall railing so no one would fall). I wouldn't give in because I knew once I said yes, they would play and talk all night and never get any sleept. Plus, it's a twin and they would be too crowded and kick & elbow each other all night. Well, one night back at the end of January I go in to check on the before I go to bed and find Maddox up on the top bunk sleeping with Leyton. Little sneaky kids!

They've since moved to the guest room with the queen bed and have been sleeping in there for the last 6 weeks or so. Here's a few cute pics of them snuggling together.


"Score!!" "Oh, score, score, score!!" "Right there, score!"

This is what I hear 50 kazillion times a day. It's a fun car game some friends of ours told us about. The gist of the game is very simple. Everytime you see a yellow vehice you yell out SCORE! Big semi's, buses, and construction vehicles don't count. My boys love this game and Kris and I have become quite addicted too. Kris and I have even been known to text a picture here and there to one up each other. ;-) I have to say though that Maddox is definitly the best in our family. He can spot those yellow vehicles everywhere!

So, next time your driving with the kiddos this will definitly help keep the occupied and help pass the time.

Selfishly excited

Okay, so I just have to say I am super excited I found a way to update my blog from work! It's these small things that help brighten my day. :-)

Nothing too new and exciting to report with us. Baseball season is getting ready to kick in full gear this week. We have our first practice on Tuesday at 5p. Gees, before I was working full-time 5p would have been no big deal. I'd just work my schedule around it. Now, nope that just won't work. How does this coach expect parents who work a 9-5 job to get there on time?? I already told the coach we'd be there at 515p at the earliest!! And, I doubt we're even there by then but, whatever. (Okay, sorry for that small trivial vent...)

I've recently uploaded some new videos of the kids to our YouTube account. You can check them out here. I've got a couple more I want to add. The uploading kind of takes awhile so these are just a few I've already put on. You'll get a big kick out of seeing some of the older videos on there too when Leyton and Maddox were just lil tykes.

Until later...
