Easy Breakfast Cups

I saw some yummilicious looking breakfast cups on Pinterest - My newest addiction. I didn't feel like looking them up this morning and decided to try my own version. They were a total success and so easy!

So here it goes~

1 pkg. frozen shredded hashbrowns (thawed)
8 oz. sour cream
7 eggs
2 tsp. garlic powder
1 pkg. real bacon bits
1 Tbs. parsley flakes
8 oz. shredded cheddar cheese
salt as desired (I always use sea salt.)

Preheat the oven to 425. Pam or line 12 muffin cups. In a large mixing bowl (of course I used my stainless steel bowl from Pampered Chef), mix together all ingredients. Spoon into muffin pan creating heaping tops. Bake for 25-30 minutes or until golden and eggs are solidified.

And yes. My Pampered Chef stoneware muffin pan has broke right down the middle. Did I throw it away? NOOOOO! It actually works better now! If I only need 6 cups, then I can only pull out one half of it! Genius!

The Chandelier is Officially Hung

I am still working on my daughter's Paris room, and you know you cannot have a Paris room without a chandelier full of bling. I have searched and searched and didn't want to spend a fortune. We fell in love with one at Home Depot. I finally bought it and called my dad to inform him of his new project. He came over today and helped. I don't know what I would do without him. I have always said my husband takes the man out of manual. Every tool in the house belongs to me. He cuts the grass and that is about it. So my dad really has had to step up and help thank goodness.

Here it is! I am so excited! I want her room!

Now I have to paint her furniture and put her bed together. I'll keep you posted on the progress.

Biting Off More Than I Can Chew

Does anyone else have this problem? I have always been the busy-bee kind of person. In high school I worked 2 waitressing jobs, cheered football, basketball, and competition, was an officer for FFA, was on the land-judging team, horse judging team, Envirothon team, and forestry team, did pageants, Spanish and Drama Clubs, took AP classes and made all A's, and always had a boyfriend. All of that still wasn't enough. I wanted more. I needed more. I thrive off of biting off more than I can chew. As a professional, for 2 years I taught self-contained EIP kids (very low and needy), was the lead teacher for my grade level, was the head coach for high school cheerleading, took my daughter to ballet, gymnastics, and competitive cheerleading, worked on getting my Master's Degree, and still made time to work out and get mani-pedis.

Well, you might say that I am crazy. And sometimes I feel crazy, which is why God invented meds...

Well, here I am. My son is about to turn 1, which in itself keeps me pretty darn busy. I am still teaching. My daughter does ballet and gymnastics. I am a blog addict. I am starting to blog myself instead of reading everyone else's, however, one was not enough. I have 2! My classroom blog, and my personal blog. I also am trying my hand at new crafting ideas and hope to sell some things in the future. I am currently working on getting my real estate license. I am constantly painting/remodeling my home and furniture. I love tv. I love Facebook. I want more. I am hosting a Pampered Chef party this weekend and I sold it 9 years ago. I loved it. Guess what? I am thinking about signing up again! Am I crazy? YES!!!!

Why? I want more money. I need more money. After seeing my W-2 this year with the budget cuts made on teachers' salaries, I am astonished at the difference. Yikes! I made more as a bartender/waitress in college!! How's that for America's focus on important things? Anyhoo, I want to be able to spend money without feeling guilty. I want to get my kids a swing-set and trampoline. I plan to use my PC money for just that. I also have some remodeling plans for the house. Now, does it make sense why I want to do it? Ok. Sorry for rambling on and on. So needless to say, if anyone reads this and wants to earn PC products for free or discounted let me know, and I will be glad to set up a catalog party!

Have a fantabulous day!
