My weekend of sewing action. This is no distractions, and just a sewing fool. Sweater skirt with the arms for leggings, recycled carhart pants that didnt fit my step son, 2 snow skirts from one with hot new designs, ipad cover, owl organizer, owl heating pad, and many many bags!

My mentor, adopted mother, friend! Couldnt have done this without her!

This was one weekend of some serious sewing! I joined a sewing guild here in my hometown and I think it has released a beast in me! But I love it!

I cant wait to whip out more things! The owl heating pads are going to make great gifts, and those owl organizers are great for sewers!

BUT!

How the heck can one get excited for Christmas when its 40 degrees and raining?! UGH! Small world problems, I guess I should just be grateful, right….

Anyways! Enjoy! Its November 13th and we are nearing to a new year, a new leaf, and a new sewing machine maybe! πŸ™‚

Happy Thirsty Thursday for those of YOU that celebrate πŸ˜‰

Healthy start to Movember

November is off to a great start!

Halloween was a hit! We had a great halloween gathering with our friends and it was ahhhhmazing!

We had costume winners! We had scary treats! Bobbing for beer! Nothing better than to start November off to a BANG!

Had to whip out this quick qaspeq vest for a welcome to Bethel gift. But it didnt fit so its up for grabs its about a size small for $65.

Im trying this whole meal planning and hopefull it will kick me off to a great start. SO far so good, although it might be TOO much food. who would have thunk that.

Lunch:

I roasted all the vegetables at 425 degrees with a little bit of oil, salt and pepper.

Asparagus, broccoli, sweet potatoes, and cauliflower.

I cooked up some brown rice in the rice cooker and put a cup in each dish.

For the chicken I cooked them on stovetop and seasoned with cumin, paprika, garlic salt, and pepper. They are delicious!

And of course hard boiled eggs for a snack here and there, great protein!

Im trying this healthy meal planning out and so far so good.

These breakfast burritos are very hearty and filling! Probably should have kept them light.

Breakfast burritos:

Eggs

Potatoes

Peppers

Spinach

Chesee

Voila!

Let them freeze and then wrap then in foil. When you are ready to heat up wrap in a wet paper towel for about 2 minutes.

Of course I had to add some humor to my scary meatloaf fellows. πŸ™‚

Who doesnt love scary meatloaf?

I was googling couples costumes and found this great idea to be crown and coke! These took me about an hour and they turned out awesome! I cant wait to start brewing up ideas for next year!

My quick impromptu halloween whipped out costumes for the hubby and me. πŸ™‚

Here are the few decorations we decided to put up last minute. We scared many kids and adults and had children crying even before getting to the door. We were also blasting scary music in the entryway which freaked me out a little.
