My stuff is here!!!!!!

Well hello! I am super excited today because I found out my things are here! ITS ALL HERE! Its hilarious because we got notice that my large shipment was here first and then they told me a day later that everything else is here. The stuff that came first should have not come for another month and the things that came after should have been here a week ago...crazy stuff! I wont question it though because I am just glad my things are all here. I am dreaming of my house being all cute and homey. I dream of candles all over my house (because candles are homey) and I dream of Gregg coming home from work and me having my cute apron on and a nice HOMEMADE meal ready on the table! You have no idea how much I am craving homemade food. I salivate every time I think about making food. My sister Kristin and my brother in law Kevin have weekly Bible studies at their house which we are planning on starting here as well. Every week Kristin had an assortment of scrumptious goodies and I have already started to picture the things that I want to make (OH and by the way, Kristin can you tell me how you made those little cheesecakes?). This was a really good pick-me-up to find out my things are here because I was really getting down before that. I haven't posted in the last couple of days, not because I have been really busy or anything but because I have had nothing to write about. I was really sad yesterday and had a little breakdown because I was home alone all day and my house is completely empty. I love my house but it really doesn't feel like mine until MY things are in it. I am ready to start having people over and cooking for my husband and myself. I am ready for my yard to be mowed also. We are going to buy a mower but for the first time the neighbor said he would mow it. I also picture vases with flowers in them in the tall windows on each side of the entry door. OHHH I want to make it mine so bad! I will have to put pictures up when I finally get to decorate everything. Also, I am still waiting to see whether or not I have a job at the Child Development Center or not. I called them and they said that they had not received my application yet but I made sure to tell them that I was really interested in a job and that I have background experience that would make me a great worker. I pretty much sold myself to whoever was on the phone. The person was probably paying no attention but I don't care. I NEED A JOB. I AM GOING TO DYE OF BOREDOM if I don't get a job! I already am like half dead but not completely dead. Oh and one more thing you might like to know. I am going to get my hair colored tomorrow! I want to do blonde and red highlights like I have done before but I feel really pregnant already and I feel icky so I need to do something fun. Gregg said I am not showing at all but I still feel huge. I also was weighed at the doctor and I have not gained any weight at all but why is it that I still feel like I have? I don't know. It may be in my mind but if I feel pregnant now, I cant WAIT for later! But I think I am going to go because I am rambling on about a bunch of stuff. I will be back later and update you on my life here as it progresses from bad to scary to not so homey to home sweet home. Keep watching for posts!


  1. So I'm not your sister, but I do have a mini-cheesecake recipe for you, if you want it. Not sure what ingredients you can find there, but it should be do-able!

    Cheesecake Cookie Cups
    12 pieces Refrigerated Cookie Dough (pre-made, comes in a tube thing)
    1 package (8 oz) Cream Cheese, softened
    ½ cup Sweetened Condensed Milk
    1 Large Egg
    1 teaspoon Vanilla Extract
    1 can (21 oz) cherry pie filling

    Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Paper line 12 muffin cups.
    Place one piece of cookie dough into each muffin cup.
    Bake for 10 – 12 minutes or until cookie has spread to edge of cup.
    Beat cream cheese, sweetened condensed milk, egg, and vanilla extract in medium bowl until smooth. Pour about 3 tablespoons cream cheese mixture over each cookie in cup.
    Bake for an additional 15 to 18 minutes, or until set. Cool completely in pan or on wire rack. Top with pie filling. Refrigerate for one hour.

    I used Chocolate chip cookies and they were quite tasty, but I bet any variety of cookie dough would work! Let me know if you make them!

  2. Hey thanks! That sounds great!

  3. you should use white chocolate chip cookies....white chocolate and cherry cheesecakes...YUM.
