Sunday Something: Awards

2 awards in 1 week. How lucky am I? I love all you new readers and I love getting to know you! I have been given an award by 2 different bloggers-
Melanie at Regular Mel
Chelsea at The old simple life

It is so fun to get this award. I love reading your posts and getting to know you. I truly love comments and the conversation that it creates.

7 Things about me:
1. I am a serious night owl. Always have been. Not sure why, but I’m far more productive at night.
2. I am in love with my dog. You’ve met him right? Duramax is the light of my life!
3. I secretly want all those things I say I don’t. Why? I just know certain things aren’t going to happen for me, so it’s better to not set myself up for disappointment.
4. I have a serious addiction. Video games. I can’t even have a gaming console in my house because I will never stop playing. You think I’m kidding.. I’m not.
5. I am obsessed with cows. Especially jersey’s. I love their big brown eyes!
6. I have always been a huge craft nut. I’m not great but I sure try, and fail a lot!
7. I listen to rock and roll/alternative music. Disturbed, Linkin Park… anything not soft or soothing.

What are you up to this fine Sunday morning?


  1. What's up, Brandi?

    I found you from the Alexa hop and am following on GFC as well. I can relate to gaming as have been a gamer since my father first put me on an orange crate to play pinball (a nickle for five balls) in the 1950s. Have a great day!


  2. Hey I am a serious writer, reader, blogger, cat lover and Night owl just like you. I found you from bloackaholics. I am sub, and all that now, glad to meet you.

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

Source: via Brandi on Pinterest


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

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 …
