The View From My Front Window

Another snow day for us! Although, I usually love snow, this is just too much winter even for me. Normally we would be outside playing in it and taking wintry walks, but the little ones have colds and it is much too windy to be outside. I'm really starting to feel like a prisoner in my own home. The good thing is, we are all home and we can stay in our jammies and have another movie day. The bad thing, when the weather is nice, our kids will be sitting in school making up a ton of snow days!

Banana Bread

Rainy days always put me in the mood to bake and I had some overripe bananas, so Banana Bread it is!

You will need:
  • 2 cups of all purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 3/4 cup brown sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 cups of mashed banana
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees and lightly grease a 9x5 loaf pan.
  2. Combine flour, baking soda, and salt. In another bowl, cream together the butter and brown sugar. Stir in the eggs, mashed banana,vanilla and cinnamon until well blended. Add the flour mixture and mix, by hand, until it's just moistened. Pour batter into pan.
  3. Bake for 1 hour @350. Allow it to cool for about 10 minutes before removing from pan.

Muffin Tin Monday-Orange

Miss Madelyn's orange muffin tin lunch consisted of: orange Kool-Aid, mac and cheese, cheese crackers, carrot sticks, "orange" ranch dip, and cantaloupe! It was a big hit as usual! She even ate the carrots (pretty good for a kid who refuses to eat veggies!)

Break Time!

Lately, I have been finding myself falling behind on things again. My exhaustion level is at an all time high with this pregnancy and I really feel overwhelmed by the many tasks that are not getting completed. I have put "my blinders" on in far to many cases recently and have ignored a lot around the house. Although I do love blogging, I really think that it is time for me to step away from it for awhile. Spending so much time on the computer is taking away from the time I spend with my family. I hope that some day I can find a balance and return to blogging, but until then, I am taking a much needed break! 

Thank for understanding!

Muffin Tin Monday-Super Bowl Snacks!

There was no theme this week for Muffin Tin Monday, so we are sharing some of our Super Bowl goodies!


This could quite possibly be the most unhealthy Muffin Tin that I have ever made, but it was the Super Bowl and we really had fun "pigging out"! This is only a tiny bit of all the junk that we had! Madelyn is just such a funny girl, she tasted her wing and said, "Hmm, it tastes like chicken!"  What a kid!

If you would like to join in on the Muffin Tin Monday fun, go visit the Muffin Tin Mom!

Friend Makin' Monday-Super Bowl

It's time for another addition of Friend Making Monday, hosted by {aefilkins}, and today is all about the Super Bowl!

Did you watch the Super bowl?  Of course I did! My family LOVES football, so there is no way we would miss the big game!

If so, who were you rooting for?  This is where it got ugly! I was the only one cheering for the Saints! Everyone else was sure the Colts would win! All I have to say about that is..... Nah, nah, nah, naaaah, naaaah!

If not, what did you do instead? :)

Where did you watch it/not watch it? At home! It makes it a lot easier to change into your stretchy pants when you have eaten way too much!

What did you eat?  A better question would be, what didn't you eat! We had shrimp, wings, chips, bologna, pickles, junk, junk, and more junk! You know, all the stuff that is really not good to eat when you are pregnant! Let me tell you, I also had a lot of TUMS for dessert!

Favorite superbowl commercial?

Least favorite? Not sure. They were all pretty good!

What did you think of the half time show? I understand that they are trying to "play it safe", but when the most exciting thing about the performance is the light display, I think they missed the mark! I was kind of boring!

Who do you wish would have been the halftime show? I would have loved to see The Black Eyed Peas, Jay-Z, Beyonce, Rihanna, Lady Gaga. Someone current!

Well, that's what I thought of the Super Bowl! Head on over to {aefilkins} and makes some new friends!
