The forgotten blog....

I have to admit that when logging in just now I was sick to my stomach. To make matters worse I lost my password. So embarrassing. Has it really been that long since my last post? I am so ashamed of myself. Where is my dedication girl. 

Wait wait for it.

  I'll tell you where I've been, chasing an 2 yr.old around up and down the house , carpooling to baseball and trying to stay on top of homework. WOW Ooo is school back in session.  This year the work load has increased rapidly. Have you seen these books are kids are carrying around, crazy. 

So my poor blog sat on the shelf taunting me like those dang DVR workout recordings .

  While laying in bed last night I said how can I maintain the zoo and actually sit down for 30 minutes. Do I have the time. And poof it was laying right on my bedside table. My beloved binder of tricks. It is my official oh my goodness you did that or really you can do that go to. And you all know what I'm talking about. I am in  again, 100%.  The plan is to start sharing and hopefully you all will share too. 
So lets say hello to good times , good laughs and frugal finds.

Back to school yeah!

How sweet this last week has been with the boys at school.  At first I did not want to let go of my late nights and breakfast at 10. Not to mention my beach days at Zuma. But when I look around my house and see what I have accomplished in the last five days I am amazed. My school flag is flying high. So over the summer my goal was to put my Martha apron on and get down to work. I wanted to redo dining room table and chairs ( FYI as of yesterday 2 are done!), Mod podge my black bookcases ( 80% done 100% questionable) and finish my babies shabby chic girlie room ( its been a 2 year process). And lastly dust off my scrap booking adventures. Which I have not touched in 2 years. Maybe just maybe I'll start making those great photo books. Just thinking of pulling out all the paper, glue, stickers and pictures gives me anixety.  So lets get to the   the exciting pictures.

How great are those gonna look! Now I just need to decide what to do with those cushions. Did I mention that I received all 8 of these chairs for FREE.

Next project:

So it tooks me days to find a happy worn look. Thanks to the previous owner for using latex paint, uck. I needed a free fix for the inside so I mod podge some scrap book paper. Lastly I have to add the chicken wire to the door, decide if I'm gonna hang hooks inside, or do shelves, and what to do about the clock feature.

Mom can we have Pizza!

For some strange reason my boys relate sleep overs with pizza. Why? I have no idea. I didn't start it and I really don't want to pay for it. Not to mention my better half had to give up pizza along time ago. Thank you lactose. Put back to pizza dilemma I had to come up with an alternative. Cost of delivery for me is no less than $30.00, buying premade pizza shell cost only $5.00 but has ingredients I can't even pronounce. So I have finally found a great pizza dough  recipe. We always make the normal cheese and pepperoni but my chicken barq pizza comes in a close second. FYI this recipes freezes!

 Pizza Dough
3 1/2 Cups Flour ( Wheat is great)
1 cup Warm Water
2 Tbsp. Yeast
2 Tbsp. Honey
1/4 cup olive oil

Put in mixer, till ball form. Place in bowl on counter. Cover with warm damp towel. Watch how fast it rises. Once done divide into two. Now you are ready to make pizza ( about 8inch). To spice up the crust I sprinkle garlic, basil, and a drizzle of olive oil before putting sauce on.
