This little guy will be coming home on Sunday!

He's a red Merle miniature Australian Shepherd. Tentatively named Giggs.

Our First House!

We closed on our first house on May 15. We slowly moved ourselves (with Mike & Edith's help - to be fair, Mom thought we were hiring movers) and are finally feeling close to settled. Of course it's a process - there is nothing hung on the walls or accessorized (any interior decorators out there want to work for cheap?!) - but it's coming together.
Here are some pictures:

And the biggest work in progress, our bedroom:

Mr. Fix-it

Our new house is not a fixer-upper by any means. But, it does seem like there is always something on the list!

Last night the cheap plastic handle on the toilet broke - literally snapped in half. So today Mark replaced the handle which also involved replacing the chain and flapper.

The bonus in all of this is that the new handle looks much better!

We may not be pros - or anywhere close - but it's the small steps!

I took pictures of the house yesterday - I'm hoping to get those posted soon. We're nowhere near finished, but at least everything is unpacked!

Breakfast Muffins

 Mark loves this recipe - and I'm always searching for it.  I thought I had posted it here, but I can't find it. 

This recipe is simple to throw together - it would be perfect for showers (you could even make mini-muffins).  Enjoy!

1 lb sausage
6 eggs
2 c shredded cheddar
salt and pepper
1/2 tsp. ground mustard
1 can Grands Flaky Layers biscuits
 (Makes 24 muffins)

1. Brown and drain your sausage.

2. Mix eggs, sausage, and cheese together. Season with salt, pepper, and ground mustard.

3. Grease muffin pan with cooking spray. Peel each uncooked biscuit in to 3 layers and line each muffin cup with a layer.

4. Scoop a little egg mixture into each muffin cup. A little goes a long way since your biscuits will rise and your eggs will puff up.

5. Bake according to biscuit directions - 16min at

ter taking this road.
