pretty crafty!

The little lady has about 1,000,000,000 hair things! and got really tired of her messy messy drawers in her bathroom, so I took to the internet and found out houw to make a head band organizer, I didnt have all the supplies but I did come up with this;


you are suppost to use a paper towel roll but a 1 gallon water jug works just as good!


Fall Flowers

Today I headed out to the dollar tree to get some bingo prizes for the little ladies birthday party, while I was there I thought I would get some fall flowers for my newly redecorated (we just moved some furniture around) living room so I found these

not too bad right? I thought they were a little empty, so I bought 1 bunch of yellow flowers with leaves, and a little bag of pumpkins, heres what I came up with:

Here they are in their new homes;

Peach Muffins

I still have about 6# of peaches in my fridge that are at the too soft for our liking stage, so I spent the afternoon searching for things I could make and freeze using them, since I do not have canning supplies or jelly making supplies I was limited... I did find this recipe however for peach muffins and before I changed it up a bit each muffin was 8 points! that was just not happening, even on a cheat day!

here is the original recipe it makes 16 (they must be really big!!)
3 cups all-purpose flour
1 tablespoon ground cinnamon
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
1 1/4 cups vegetable oil
3 eggs, lightly beaten
2 cups white sugar
2 cups peeled, pitted, and chopped peaches

heres my version it makes 24 regular cupcake size muffins 2 points each!
3 cups whole wheat floor
1 tablespoon ground cinnamon
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
1 1/4 cups all natural no sugar added applesauce
3 eggs, lightly beaten
2 cups granulated splenda
splash of silk soy milk

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Lightly grease 16 muffin cups.
In a large bowl, mix the flour, cinnamon, baking soda, and salt. In a separate bowl, mix the apple sauce, eggs, and sugar. Stir the wet mixture into the flour mixture just until moist. Fold in the peaches. Spoon into the prepared muffin cups.
Bake 10 minutes in the preheated oven, until a toothpick inserted in the center of a muffin comes out clean. Cool 10 minutes before turning out onto wire racks to cool completely.

I am planning on freezing these in bags of 6 that way I can pull them out on Friday and have them for the weekends, once I get my zucchini muffins done I will mix them 3 and 3!

I still have @4# of peaches left~


decluttering the office...

In an effort to clean the office to make more room for our home weight room that is coming soon, I had to find a place to put my headboard sides, our master bedroom is not big enough to hold the whole bedroom set so we had to break it apart, and I have been using it to hold crap... I mean very important things I need to run this house! but I thought I would try a new configuration with them... what do you think? and please do not comment on the dust! thanks!



I thought it would be a good day to organize, I was right! here are a few before and afters of my hall closets!



I was right they look amazing!



Now that summer is over, I am trying to get things back to normal around here, starting with coupons, cleaning schedules, and blogging! So with that said here is the menu plan for the next 2 weeks!

9-7 Hungry girls 7 layer burrito blitz
9-8 Spaghetti Primavera with sausage
9-9 Hungry girls sloppy janes
9-10 lean bean and cheese enchiladas
9-11 spaghetti and spinach frittata
9-12 bbq chicken, corn on the cob
9-13 pan fried chicken parm with side salad
9-14 chili cheese burger
9-15 smothered pork chops
9-16 cheesy chicken carbonara
9-17 Fajitas in foil pack
9-18 planet hungywood captian crunch chicken
9-19 any meal that we didnt get around to eating, I am sure there will be at least one

all meals will be served with a fresh (sometimes frozen) fruit or veggie of course!
on the credit card front, we are so close to being debt free we can taste it! we have one that will be gone the end of October, then after that we will only have 1 left! then we are starting to save for our vacations which we already have planned (2011 cali trip, 2012 cruise).

we are working on selling our big tv that we have, if we can sell it for 850.00 we can turn around and buy a smaller better tv for about the same, or atleast with very little out of pocket, when that happens, we get to start decorating our back living room and make it feel more "homey" so im totally excited about that.
This last weekend we climbed Mt. Timpanogos for the first time in about 5 years, it was alot of fun we made it up thru the tour and back down in 2 hours and 53 minutes the average is 3 hours but of course we are now better the average! (at least by a little bit!)
I am going to TRY HARDER THEN EVER to post at least twice a week!
