A little bit of everything

I just want to start this by saying sorry for all the grammar mistakes in my last post. I was tired and trying to hurry up and finish the post. I'd also like to give a little shout out to miss Lily Mae for being the cutest stink in kid ever! Molly and Ellie send kisses back to you :)

Since I posted the wrong pictures in the last blog I'll put up a few from our day at the beach with Ashley, Moose and Charlie.

This is my favorite picture of the day, I just wish I was able to get Molly in it all the way.

Now for the food...

Tonight I tried making baked vegetable egg rolls for the first time. They were extremely easy to make, although I found out that I have no idea how to roll something like a burrito. They would have been really good if I had the right kind of wraps. I guess I had bought spring roll wraps. I still had a few even though they were a little... off. I do want to try them again though! I found them here. I also didn't take a picture because Pam's look MUCH better than mine did.

Pancakes how I love you. Now that I'm thinking about them, I think I'm going to have a few for breakfast tomorrow. Yum. I got them from Ree over at the Pioneer Women, so of course they were destined to be delicious. She calls for cake flour, but I just used bread flour since I didn't feel like buying any for just one recipe. I would also like to note that this is the first time I've made pancakes, and they turned out perfect! Frank is the pancake maker in this house (which is odd since he's a waffle guy).

Last week I made this amazing taco casserole, and I can't remember where I got it. I can't seem to find it in my recipe book either. Not liking that. If I am ever able to find the recipe, or remember where I got it from I will try to remember to share it with you all. I really liked it, Frank didn't care much for it but that was because I had used soy meat.

Well that's my food update for now. I think!? Not sure where my mind has wondered off too. If you find it please let me know.

I would just like to say to all of you who went to the beach today. Why didn't you invite me and the dogs!? Okay I really only knew of two people going, but still I was a tad jealous. Who wouldn't be. I did however start some spring cleaning :) Now that I do love. So far I've only done the spare room, but that is the worst since it's our storage room at the moment. We don't have much since I'm always going through it and donating or throwing away what we don't use, but I'm always able to find more. It's madness. One nice find was a much nicer camelbak. Frank forgot where he had put it, then forgot about it completely. I made sure to hang it up with the other one so now I have options. Is it sad that that makes me happy?

Because of all the cleaning and the lack of sleep I got last night, I ended up doing my workout during the biggest loser tonight. Normally I like to sit on my butt eating an apple or Popsicle (sugar free) while watching, but it was kinda nice doing sit ups, push ups, lunges and so on while they were working there butts off as well. I may have to continue doing that from now on. Anyone else like to work out at night while getting in there TV time?

Yummy veggie eggrolls sound good. Thanks for the shout out to Lily! She's a goober and LOVES dogs. I've only done my prenatal yoga once and although I loved it! lol I still have so many videos in my hulu que that I end up doing marathon tv watching trying to catch up instead of anything else.
