This week my daughter Tara is joining us. She has on Pink Hello Kitty polish & a silver glitter Hello Kitty polish (from Target). She doesn't know it, but I got her 5 polish's for Easter.
I might be borrowing them soon.
Today I have my Easter nails. Inspired from Pinterest. Yellow Sally Hansen~Hard Lemonade, Green Pure Ice~Wild Thing, Blue Piggy Paint, Purple China Glaze~Grape Juice (just got it today) & Pink China Glaze~Flip Flop Fantasy (also new today).
A little messy.
Things are always busy around here, but things have been a little crazy lately. Out of control Drama Queen. Always wanting her way & always being angry. Not really sure what to do to reach her & change things. It kind of wears you down. Being a Mom is so hard. She does dance & is in Daisies. Soon she will be doing t-ball. April-June. Then she wants to try cheerleading. I'm glad she is trying different things & enjoying it & meeting some new friends too. So this week hasn't been so great. Hopefully next week will be better.
1. I didn't have the chicken pox till I was 27.
2. I lived with my parents till I was 29 (I couldn't afford my own place & didn't find a roomie till I was 29. Hubby lived with his parents till he was 30)
3. I never broke a bone or sprained anything (I'm wicked clumsy too)
4. I hate talking on the phone. I avoid it whenever I can.
5. I don't text. I have Tracfone & if I read or send a text, they take 30 minutes (units) off.
We made these muffins last week. They are soooo good. I did chocolate chips & peanut butter chips instead of the white choc chips, since I didn't have any.

(makes four servings)
1/2 cup cornmeal

1 16 oz. mild or medium Salsa Verde (green salsa made with tomatillos*)

Snipped cilantro, green onion, chili powder, and a dollop of sour cream
Preheat the oven to 400. In a large saucepan, bring 1&1/4 cups water to a boil. Gradually whisk in cornmeal; reduce heat. Cook, whisking constantly, 3 mins. Stir in corn; return to boil. Reduce heat to med. low. Cook, stirring frequently for 10 mins.
*Meanwhile, in a 1&1/2 quart gratin or 2 qt. rectangular baking dish, combine chicken, olives, and salsa. Spread out cornmeal mixture on top of chicken mixture. Top with tomato slices. Bake, uncovered, for 20-25 mins. or until heated through.

This is my fave corner in our house. We have a guest room that is also my craft room. People stay over, but usually sleep on the couch in the living room or on an air-mattress. So it's mostly my room. I blog & craft in there. It's cozy. I'd like to add some little white lights to the top of the desk. I think white lights look so cute, even if it isn't Christmas time.
*Thinly slice the tomatoes; place on paper towels to drain. Unroll
crescent dough; place on an ungreased baking sheet. Roll into a
14-in. x 10-in. rectangle; seal seams and perforations.
Arrange tomatoes and onion over crust. In a small bowl, combine the
oil, Italian seasoning, garlic, salt and pepper; brush over top.
Sprinkle with cheese.
*Bake at 375° for 10-14 minutes or until lightly browned. Cut into
squares. Yield: 12 servings.
