Do you eat your food storage?

Like I'm supposed to, I have bags upon bags of wheat in my basement! But what on earth am I supposed to with it all? You can only make so much bread, you know. So, my perfectly fabulous hubby calls me all excited from work the other day about "a lady from the internet" that has figured out a way to use all those bags of wheat in real life!

My First Before & After

I've been shopping for nightstands nigh unto a year now and just can't bring myself to spend the outrageous amounts required even for the cheesy Wal-Mart types starting at $80. So, after being continually inspired by my amazingly resourceful Craft Godess Hero......Lindsay Prigmore, my amazingly talented niece of
That's So Cuegly!

fame (check her out at I have become a DI junkie, stopping almost daily, waiting patiently for the perfect nightstands to appear. After weeks of dedication, I finally scored two of these lovely specimens for just $10 each. After a trip to the hardware store for black lacquer spray paint, a few peices of scrapbook paper from my stash, and a rub down with some steel wool. I came up with this beauty!!! What do ya think of that? Thanks Linds!!!!

Who ever heard of HOMEMADE English Muffins?

So..... I ran out of brown sugar the other day and didn't have time to hit the store since I was in the middle of making an amazing recipe that is one of those you just can't walk away from. So I used my Domestic Godess Super Powers and turned to the internet. And guess what! I found a recipe for Brown Sugar!!! So this of course started me thinking about all the things I use on a daily basis that I could actually create myself and therefore.......SAVE MYSELF SOME CASH!!!
So wa la!!! Homemade English Muffins! Crazy, huh? The craziest part cook them on a pancake griddle!! So fun & so yummy! My family couldn't get enough of them and keep asking, "When ya gonna make some more of them muffins, Ma?" Well, not exactly like that, but it's best not to forget Buck's Heber roots, right?

We've been trying to finish the basement this summer, so the vacation budget has really suffered! Despite that, we did go to the Homestead in July. I remember going there as a child and thinking how run down and kinda yucky it was so I wasn't really excited to go there . I always thought that Buck really wouldn't want to vacation so close to his hometown anyway. But, it was the 4th of July and our choices were limited, so we ended up at the Homestead and were completely surprised at how nice it was,
AND we had an amazing time to boot!
Here's a few photos........

brain damaged as he looks)

Goofiness, just plain goofiness!

A little SLOW......

K, so I'm more than a little slow at updating my blog! But, thanks to Lindsay P. for helping me make this page so amazingly cute. Now I guess I have to post. One problem, the card reader on my computer is kaput. So, as soon as I get that fixed, I'll start blogging in earnest. (pics are more interesting than what I might have to say.) I promise! I did successfully add a badge for my facebook page tho (all by myself). Woot! Woot!

So, everyone keeps telling me I need to start a blog. Why, I'm not sure, we just aren't all that exciting. Maybe this will be good motivation to BE exciting, right? So, here goes.......
