Happy Anniversary Darling!

Yesterday was Mr. Miller and my anniversary! We had dinner with our family, it was very low key, but last weekend we went on a date to celebrate :). It's always good to have time to ourselves to keep that connection and flame going. 
This is his signature face lol

So here's to us my love, to many years of wedded bliss; may our love grow as the time passes. 



I love you.

Grilled Cheese Pizza!!

I have to tell you that this is probably the easiest, most rewarding dinner that you can make for your family. It's a good way to use random things to make something yummy that everyone will enjoy and devour.

Here's what you'll need:



-Pizza Crust (I just happened to have some mini pizza crusts in the freezer, but regular size works fine too)
-Pasta or Pizza sauce 
-Sliced Cheese (mine were american & american white)
-Shredded Cheese of your choosing (optional)
-Italian Seasoning (optional)

Before you start, preheat your oven to the temp that you pizza crust suggests, mine said to bake at 450*F. Now you can start assembling your pizza(s)!

1st
Add your sauce and spread a thin layer until you have the amount you think is appropriate.


2nd
Take your slices of cheese, tear apart and place on your sauce. Looking yummy already!


Steps 3 & 4 are optional
At this point your pizza can just go in the oven to get all melty and delicious, but I've found that I prefer to put Italian seasoning and shredded cheese on top of the slices just to make it that much tastier.



Now put your pizza in the oven for around 5mins. I say around because I never actually use a timer I just watch until the cheese starts to bubble and by then it's ready. 


This is the best part of the whole process; once your pizza has cooled for a few mins slice it up and you're ready to enjoy. To me, it tastes like grilled cheese and tomato soup in pizza form. I hope you like it as much as my family and I do!

Covered in Babies

Today has been rough...just one of those days when everything seems to be a little bit harder for no apparent reason. I have two fussy babies because of allergies that are currently kicking the butts of myself, the hubs and the kiddos, and which have been the cause of extreme frustration. Like trying to get some fresh air and pick up the mail from the mailbox around the corner and ending up throwing a BIG pile of mail all over the neighbors yard in a not so graceful attempt to chase after my almost 2yr old with my 6m old in my arms. Not one of my better moments in motherhood, or trying out big girl panties today and ending up having not 1 but 2 wet messes both of which were on the carpet (of course). All in all, it's been a drive me crazy day and I can honestly say I can't wait for it to be over. As far as tutorials go, they will have to wait until tomorrow or maybe the next day. I need peace time to recover and regroup, wish me luck on getting my baby to sleep tonight! lol Sorry for all the moaning, I promise there will be something really interesting and good in the coming days.

Baptisms & Tutorials!!!

My children are getting baptized next Sunday and they are in need of some nice white clothing for the occasion. I am in the process of making them and while I do that I'm getting everything ready to show all of you how to make the outfits for yourselves! I can't wait to share with you and since baby A is a girl and baby Z is a boy you'll have an outfit no matter the gender you'd like to create for! I might be overusing exclamation marks a little bit, but I am very excited to share these outfits with you, hopefully I'll have one up for tomorrow (fingers crossed, sewing machine humming). Okay, back to work before the munchkins wake up from naptime!

Holy Smokes

Last week was a disaster of a week. My son hardly slept the entire week due to receiving shots and cutting his first tooth(not fun for nursing), my daughter got a black eye from launching herself off the end of the couch where she was "bouncing" and the church we attend ended up cancelling services because of copper thieves knocking out the electricity and causing all kinds of damage to the property. I can't blame my kiddos though because they've had a rough week with going to the doctor and all the trauma that's happened. We're into another week now though and it's already looking better than the last. My son slept last night and my daughter has healed almost completely from her couch launch, so they're both in much better moods and that's a relief. I'm setting up for some tutorial posts in the next couple weeks and I'm planning for more frequent posts. Well babies need breakfast, so until next time.
