I kind of have a thing for enchiladas. I have already posted about my regular Chicken Enchiladas as well as Enchiladas Verdes and I have a few others that I haven't even shared yet. I just love Mexican food and I like having different versions of dishes so that I can mix things up. This enchilada pasta was easy and full of flavor. It is definitely going to become a regular around here.

Does anyone else around here watch Justified? If so, you should already know about Mags' famous apple pie moonshine. If you haven't seen it, you should! I wasn't too impressed by the third season but the first two were awesome. Anyway, this recipe is in honor of Mags and her crazy family. Technically this one can't really be called moonshine because it uses Everclear which is the legal version of moonshine. It's the closest you can get to the real stuff without breaking the law though.

I gave you all a glimpse of the bathroom makeover in my Fresh Start post but I just finished up a few more things in there and decided it was time that it got a post of it's own! It's fun and colorful like the rest of our house has been so far. Why? Because being a "grownup" is way overrated and I would much rather walk into a room and see something silly that makes me smile instead of a room that is
stuffy sophisticated. :)

Is anyone else having "a case of the Mondays" or is it just me? Within the first hour of waking up I succeeded in spilling coffee on my white shirt, forgetting to snap the lid on Jer's water bottle so it dumped water all over his lunchbox, misplaced my keys, he slipped and fell getting into the truck, and we missed the line at school so I had to walk him all the way back to his classroom. Blurg. Hopefully the rest of the day goes better!
Right now it is the time of week when I get to show off some of your awesome projects so things are looking up already. :) After taking a break for awhile I decided to go back to Pinterest and starting today, I will be pinning each of the posts that I feature at the link party! You can find me here. Check out a few of my favorites from last week:

This hearty breakfast is tasty and goes together quickly. Great for everyday or as a special treat for overnight guests. My husband calls this kind of dish "camp eggs" because whenever he goes camping he throws some eggs and whatever else he has on hand in a skillet for breakfast. Call it whatever you want, it's yummy either way. :)

Good morning! I hope you all had a great weekend. Today is Jer's first day of school! He has been counting down the days for weeks now. I'm going to miss having him around but I am really excited for him and all of the fun that he is going to have. I am also looking forward to getting into more of a routine and hopefully crossing more things off of my never-ending to-do list.
First, it's time to for our link party. Check out a few of my favorites from last week:

Fellow cake batter lovers - rejoice! It is time for another batter infused recipe and this one is even better than the last. These little truffles are easy to put together and highly addictive. Next time I make them I am going to have to send most of them to the office with Shelby because I couldn't stop eating them. They have all the flavor of cake batter with the texture and richness of sugar cookie dough. Delish.

Awhile back I saw this picture of a wall full of pinwheels and instantly fell in love with it. Sadly, it is another one of those Pinterest casualties where the original source wasn't linked correctly so I have no idea where it really came from. Anyway, when trying to come up with a way to fill this large blank piece of wall in the craft room, I thought of that photo. I didn't want over twenty holes in my wall though so instead of nailing in each one, I made it into a garland so it only required a few holes.
I love how it turned out. It's colorful and whimsical and it makes me smile. :) This would also be a fun addition to a kid's room!

Hello! I hope you all are having a wonderful Monday. Mine is off to a great start since it is *finally* nice enough to open the windows this morning! After posting this I am going to have to let the boy run around the backyard for a bit. :) We also made some progress in the kitchen this weekend and I am really looking forward to getting it all finished so I can enjoy cooking in there again. I already had a limited amount of counter space and since it turned into a construction zone it has been even worse.
While trying to get the shop stocked I haven't had much time for recreational crafting which is why I have mostly been sharing recipes lately. I am back at it now though and have some projects that I can't wait to share with you!
Now on to the link party. Here are a few of my favorites from last week:
