All About Me in 30 Days - Day 22: A Website

The most current website that I have been visiting lately is

Yes, not only do I have a 2 year old, but I am expecting as well! Today is my first doctors appointment and I have wanted to keep things quiet until I went. Well, I am a little early with this blog, but I think I will be okay. is great for information and support when it comes to being a parent. Yes Dads, you can join too. I get weekly emails about how the baby is growing and about what I should expect to happen to my body. I also get weekly emails about my toddler and advice emails about potty training and moving to a toddler bed and so on. It is a wonderful website!

All About Me in 30 Days - Day 21: A Recipe

A recipe... Hmmmm..... I have really been craving CHEESE, So I will do my Supped Up Mac N Cheese recipe. I got the idea from my mother and then added more.

A box of shell noodles
A jar of queso ( small, medium, or large depending on how cheesy you want it)
(Mild, Medium or Hot depending on how spicy you want it)
Bacon Bits
Can of Mushrooms
Rotisserie Chicken
Bag of Shredded Cheese (Cheddar, Fiesta Mix, whatever you want)

Boil Noodles and drain.
Shred the chicken off of the bones of the rotisserie chicken
Add noodles back to pot and add queso, bacon bits, mushrooms, chicken and shredded cheese( cheese to taste).
Once it is all mixed, put in a 9x13 casserole dish and put in the oven at 400 until it is lightly browned or more melted. Usually 10-20 minutes.
Then serve. It is a lot of cheese, so if you want it less cheesy, just put less cheese.

All About Me in 30 Days - Day 20: A Hobby of Mine

It is hard for me to separate talent and hobby. So I kind of feel that the line between can be blurred. So this will be an add on of the last post.
One of my talents is singing. I love to sing. I was in choir for many years and loved to do Karaoke.

All About Me in 30 Days - Day 19: A Talent Of Mine

One of my MANY talents is gardening. I just recently found that I have a green thumb and I love playing in the dirt.

This is one of the flower pots I did for my grandmother.

These are a couple of my flower pots this past spring.

Another one of my talents is crafts. I love making home made birthday cards and masks and wreaths and cross stitch and.......

I made this mask for Halloween/Samhain this year.

All About Me in 30 Days - Day 18: My Wedding/Future Wedding/Past Wedding

My husband and I have not actually had a Wedding Ceremony. We are legally married. I got pregnant before we were engaged. After Bubba was born, we decided for legal purposes we should at least be legally married. We still plan on having a ceremony. It will probably be in a couple years.

Colors will be Green and Royal Purple. I want a lot of green leaves and such and then have Dark Royal Purple flowers. We want it outside. Will probably be around the time we were legally married.

Bubba will be the Ring Bearer.

That is all I have so far.

All About Me in 30 Days - Day SEVENTEEN: An Art Piece (drawing, sculpture, painting, etc)

I have always loved H.R. Giger's artwork! He has amazing detail!
Giger has done some wonderful work other then his sketches. He won an Academy Award for Best Achievement for Visual Effects for his design work on the film ALIEN. He has done other work on many other movies.

This is just one of the many artworks created by H R Giger that I enjoy.

All About Me in 30 Days - Day SIXTEEN: A Song That Makes Me Cry (Or Nearly)

There are a couple songs that make me cry, and for different reasons.

First one is I'll Be Home For Christmas by Bing Crosby or Anyone else that sings it!
This has always been a tough one in my family. My Grandpa Fred was in the military and was in the Korean War and Vietnam War. So that song hits home for my Grandma, Uncle, Aunt and Mom. And then when he passed in 2005, it kinda took on a different meaning to us. Great song. We just don't listen to it!

Second is Its So Hard To Say Good Bye To Yesterday by Boys II Men.
Third is If I Close My Eyes Forever by Ozzy Osbourn and Lita Ford.
I kind of lump these two together because both were played at my step-brothers memorial service in 1993. My step-brother was murdered in the Chuck E. Cheese murders in Aurora, CO. It was a very hard time for my family.
Again, great songs, but I can barely listen to them.

One song that makes me almost cry out of happiness is Fireflies by Owl City. It is such a great song! Happy song!

All About Me in 30 Days - Day FIFTEEN: My Dream House

My dream house would be set in the middle of at least one acre of land. I would LOVE to have at least 50 acres, but oh well. It would be big enough for my growing family and to have lots of company over for the holidays and birthdays and Iron Chefs.
Each kid would have their own room. There would be a guest room. Dan would have his "Music Room". I would have my "Sewing/Craft Room". We would have a library! A play room for the kids. A formal dining room. And an over sized 3 car garage.
A HUGE yard! A garden! An orchard! A workshop for Dan to make things. A shed for my gardening! A HUGE covered porch! And a HUGE covered patio in the back. A fire pit to sit around year around!
Here is the closest floor plans I have been able to find to what I want.

All About Me In 30 Days - Day Fourteen: A Non-Fictional Book

About a year ago, I started reading this book that I had bought YEARS ago. It was about gardening. And until a couple years ago, I did not have any way of having a garden. But I held onto the book anyways.

Garden Witchery: Magick from the Ground Up by Ellen Dugan is a wonderful book. I have blogged about the book before! I love Ellen Dugan's work. I actually have almost all of her books now. I bought them for my birthday and have just started to read them.

This is a pagan book. But I do believe that a non pagan would enjoy this book as well. It is a wonderful book about how to create Magick from your Garden, great gardening advise, and gardening lore. And it also has great craft ideas too. Ellen Dugan writes like she is sitting in the room with you talking. Like she is one of your friends.

I give her TWO thumbs up only because I do not have more thumbs!
