Early Spirit

I'm in the Christmas spirit extra early this year! I've actually seen a lot of other people who are also so I don't feel so bad. 
Lily and I decided to start decorating last week. I still have quite a bit to do and we won't get out tree until after Thanksgiving. 

We also got some yummy Oreos!

Dumpster Diving

A while ago I decided I wanted to decorate our home in antiques. I've found a few things in our barns and also bought some. 
My brother has also found me a few things. 
The other day my husband called and said he'd gotten me something out of the dumpster near his work. It was this vintage tricycle! I couldn't believe someone would throw it out!

It's Fall!

Well we can tell its officially Fall. The leaves on our front tree are almost all gone and got raked last night. Lily was able to help rake then jump in the pile so she had a blast. 

I've been seeing a commercial on tv where the family makes sloppy joes in biscuits and I had been wanting to try them for a while. I decided last night was perfect. 
They're super easy! I forgot to take pics during the making and I had one of the finished product but it got deleted. Ugghh!

Anyway, all you do is brown your beef then drain. Add a can of Manwich and keep heated. 
Make sure you have your oven preheated to what the biscuits require. Mine was 350. 
Take each biscuit out and flatten out. Spoon some mixture on one side of the biscuit and cover with cheese. Fold the other side over so it looks like a half moon. Continue until all biscuits are filled then bake according to package. Mine took about 15 minutes. These are better than regular sloppy joe sandwiches. Yum!

It's November!

Holy cow, where has time gone this year! November 4th already! 24 days until Thanksgiving and just under 8 weeks until Christmas. Last year Christmas snuck up on me and I found myself getting most of the gifts the week before. That is NOT happening this year. 

I found an awesome app on my iPhone to help me keep track of gifts & spending. It's called Santa's Bag. 
It's pretty neat! I've only started inputting gifts. ;)  And yes you saw correct; I've bought 3 gifts already! Woo hoo! 

Have you started your shopping yet?
