I'm featured at "Okay, Allison!"

For those of you who don't know 
Me and this lovely gal Allison have some SERIOUS blog-love going on with each other

We met by happenstance
(me stumbling across her blog)
and became fast friends.
She's a total BA and I love her to bits!

She featured me on her blog today answering a few questions 
and vamping it up in a few photos

Go and check it out and follow her blog while you're there.
She freakin' Rocks

That is all.

Florentine Stuffed Chicken Breasts

When I was a teenager I worked at this restaurant and they served this dish called
"Chicken Florentine"
I had never had it before so I tried it and let me just say it was just 
INSANELY delicious

I don't know about you other cooks and wives out there, but I get in food ruts

We get into a groove where we eat the same things every week
And so my husband started asking if I would make something different
I have no problem trying new things, 
in fact, I quite enjoy it, but it's always a little daunting.

How Much of This Did YOU Already Know?

{This post, like ALL of my posts, is photo heavy and most of them are from my Instagram!}

My regular readers may already know that I go to school full-time on top of taking care of the house, the kids and being as crafty as spare time will allow.

This week however has been my spring break.
The time off is always so exciting and awesome, no matter how short lived or jam packed it is.

And somehow at the end of it I am always so eager to get back to work 
and frankly, a little confused about how I ever filled my days before schoolwork and studying was a factor....

DIY Cushion Lid Soda Crate Magazine Holder

For Christmas this last year my mom gave me my gifts in this really rad old 7up soda crate
I knew with that much character I couldn't just let it go to waste holding some junk in the shed

So, after much Googling, Pinteresting and deliberation I decided on an awesome use for it!

We have had this hideously ugly magazine holder in our bathroom for years
I got it for free like so many other things we have in our house that I absolutely hate now.
And I have been in super purging mode lately.
So I needed a replacement before I could ditch it.

Triple Heart Tuesday Link Party #5

It has been a crazy {and not in the good fun way} week here at my house
hence the SERIOUS lack of motivation on my part to blog anything at all.

I got the flu this week.... yuck...
and then right after I got over it, my husband got it.  
of course!  
So I spent all my week feeling bad, and then taking care of the hubby feeling bad
and all the while trying to keep the kids healthy.
It's a miracle they haven't turned orange from all the vitamin C I've been pumping into them!

On top of all of the sickness I am rapidly approaching my spring break
so I have been knee deep in text books and study guides.

I have {as usual} WAY too much planned for my teeny tiny measly week off
not the least of which is to spring clean, clear out the ENTIRE house of things we want to get rid of
organize and then host a yard sale. 

It's gonna be a busy busy week
But enough of all that!  

This week's features are:

Then Forgetful Momma tried to kill my diet with this amazing recipe for Sticky Finger Squares

For those of you who either are or deeply love the Irish 

As usual y'all linked up some awesomeness
Let's do it again this week!
aaaaaaaand GO!
