Weekend Planning 4.9-4.11

It is Friday and I am glad. I have been a bit MIA the last week and a half.. I apologize. Heck, I didn't post my March round up until April 8th!! I have had serious email issues... internet issues... blah la blah! I have most issues worked out and I have spent a good chunk of my week crafting. I needed it! I love how creating something (even if it isn't as perfect as other bloggy friend creations!) makes me feel so great. I look forward to sharing my new projects.

Weekend Planning over @ My Happy House. Check Molly out, she's great!

Friday:
-prime frames, again
-paint frames black
-tape in glass
-call on stickers or print out letters
-go to consignment store liquidation sale
-daily chores
-take care of bills

Saturday:
-clean out car
-clean out purse
-go through crafts and organize
-plant seeds
-moms birthday dinner

Sunday:
-go through gift wrapping, freecycle.
-spend 15 minutes decluttering LR
-fold clothes, put away

Not a lot going on Saturday or Sunday... just stuff I have been putting off, blah. But it looks to be a nice weekend weather wise, so I don't want to spend too much time indoors!

I have joined a few blog party's today.

Barn wood reindeer

I was  recently invited to an ornament exchange. We were instructed to create 12 of the same ornaments. We then wrapped one of the ornaments and put the other 11 in a box. We passed around the wrapped ornaments and opened them, sort of like a white elephant exchange. That way we all got to oogle and google  each others ornaments.

I made reclaimed barn wood reindeer. I think they turned out super cute. What do you think? Anyone want a tutorial?

BROCCOLI CHEDDAR CHICKEN BRAID

Ingredients
2 cans Pillsbury Original Crescent Rolls
2 cups chicken chunks, cooked
2 cups cheddar cheese
2 cups broccoli, frozen, steamed and chopped
1/2 cup light mayonnaise
1 egg yolk
fresh rosemary

Instructions
Preheat oven to 375 degrees F
On a parchment paper lined cookie sheet, spread both cans of crescents length wise to form a long rectangle.
Press each of the seams to form a single layer of dough.
In a large bowl, combine chicken, cheese, broccoli and mayonnaise
Spread mixture over the center of the croissant dough evenly to create a log.
Using a sharp knife, cut horizontal strips 1 inch apart down each side of the crescent dough.
Fold the dough strips over the top of the chicken mixture, alternating left and right to create a braid.
Brush the top of the braid with a beaten egg yolk and sprinkle fresh rosemary on top.
Bake for 28 – 30 minutes until golden brown.

How perfect does this sound for an easy Friday night din…

One Month to love book review

This book is divided into 30 short chapters that cover all different aspects of relationships in your life. Some people are more easy to love than others, and this definitely helps with the difficulties involved in some people. Some things in this book are very predictable. Such as focusing on the person that you actually with. In the age we live in, it is often easier or more convenient to 'play' on our phones or computers, instead of paying attention to the people that matter the most.  Each chapter ends with a challenge which includes questions or things to think about and consider. While much of this book is just reiterating what we all should be doing to maintain and straighten our relationships there are some surprising ideas. One that stood out to me is the chapter entitled. ' Practicing the art of risking awkwardness'.  Included in this chapter is the idea of swallowing your pride and facing the uncomfortable stage where something has happened and usually run …
