Five Question Friday!

1. If you could buy any car, money not an option, what would it be?

Easy, Aston Martin. They are beautiful, and lovely, and expensive. I will NEVER own one, but one can dream

2. What was your worst first date ever?

I haven't really had any. :)

3. How old were you when you fell in love for the first time?

17 and that was my first really serious relationship. It didn't work out, but the ending to it led me to where I currently live now and my husband. I couldn't be happier. 

4. When was the last time you reconciled your checkbook?

Um, I have no freakin' idea. We never overdraft so I guess that is good. Thank goodness for online banking!

5. If you were going to fashion a "Wanted" Ad for a best friend, how would you word it?

Missing. Tall, beard wearing, goofy guy who is probably singing to himself!

Facebook Friday!

It is that time again, Facebook Status Friday at Dollop of My Life!

"Energy where are youuuuu? I need to clean my house but I can't seem to find you!"

"I hate meetings on the phone. I wish they could be done via text."

"My husband and I are watching Extreme Couponing and in walks my husband with a scissors. I asked him what he was doing and he said "I am going to cut coupons!" Complete dork!"

"The Explore Minnesota song is my favorite song, ever"

There you go! I didn't have a lot to pick from since I was gone much of the last couple of weeks!

Wordless Wednesday (With Some Words)...

I will get to updating about our getaway soon, but I am utterly exhausted today. Hopefully I can muster up enough energy soon! For now, here is the flying baby!

Tuesday, April 26, 2011


We took a little trip, but we are home now and I am exhausted. I will write up a full post tomorrow! I hope everyone had a VERY happy Easter!

I am going to be gone from my blog for a couple of weeks. The next couple of weeks are going to be extremely busy, but I promise lots of pictures when I return to the blog world!

Here are some pictures to tide you over. :)

Ahhhhh, there is my boy who turned 8 months today! :)

Product Review!

I love cream cheese, hell, I love cream everything. I know, not healthy but I can't help it. It is delicious. When I saw Philly Cream Cheese Cooking Creme, I knew I had to try it! What an easy dinner option! 

This is the recipe I decided to try:

Creamy Chicken Pasta with Broccoli. Similar to a dish I make with homemade alfredo sauce.


  • 2 cups of cooked pasta
  • 4 cups of broccoli
  • 1 tablespoon of olive oil
  • 1 pound of chicken, cooked and cubed (I put some cayenne on it)
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 tub of cream cheese cooking creme
Cook pasta according to directions on box. When pasta is cooking, cook the chicken with olive oil in a skillet, about 6-8 minutes or until there is no pink. Drain pasta and add to chicken mixture with cooking creme, as well as the broccoli. Stir and heat for 2-3 minutes stirring frequently. Ta-Da! That is it. Easy peasy and delicious! I would definitely buy this product again and would like to try another flavor that they have! 

Note: Check on Philadelphia Cream Cheese website, they have a bunch of great recipes using the different cooking cremes!

Facebook Friday!

Here we go again! Friday, my favorite day of the week!

"A VERY big good luck to my husband who is taking his Professional Engineering test today! Love you babe!"

"Fletcher rolled off of the bed onto the hard floors. He is acting completely normal, but I am a wreck! Guess he is never laying in bed with us again. He is just too active. :("

"I think I broke my toe. My right foot has had a hell of a day!"

"Matt was singing the wrong lyrics to Tom Petty while sitting in the car letting Fletcher "drive" and said he felt like Homer Simpson. Only MY husband"

Five Question Friday!

1. If you could change one thing about yourself what would it be?

Procrastination. I have always had a problem with this, always. As much as I procrastinate I very much want to go, go, go...with everything. I like constant new adventures, new dreams, new everything, although I will keep the husband I got. 

2. Write about a time when you got lost.

I had just moved to the Twin Cities and I got lost in Murderapolis, on Lake Street. If anyone knows that area, they know that it isn't the best area to be lost in.

3. Camping or 5 star hotel?

Depends on my mood! I love both! Right now I could use a hotel, and I would be just fine with 4 star, hell, maybe even 3! I need relaxation at its finest!

Fletch and I want to do this again...

4. Have you donated blood?

I have and I have also been turned down for donating blood. I guess you can't go to Mexico and then come back and try to donate. 

5. Do you have a budget or do you 'fly by' most months?

We try to have a budget, and we do pretty well with it. Although the budget is tight, we get by. :)

Puffs & Mama- Just One More!

Mama Again!

So Fletcher hit his head and I was worried he was going to be sleepy, not the case. He has been super hyper and has been saying "Mama" in his crib for the last hour. Stinker!

Food Day: Slow Cooker Carnitas.

Um, yum. Yeah, this recipe is amazing. Like really amazing. The smells that fills your house is also amazing. Super amazing. Have I mentioned this is amazing? Okay. 

Slow Cooker Carnitas. 


  • 1 tablespoon of salt
  • 1 tablespoon of garlic powder
  • 1 tablespoon ground cumin
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons of dried oregano 
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons of ground coriander 
  • 1 teaspoon of chili powder
  • 2 bay leaves
  • 2 cups of chicken broth
  • 4 lb pork roast

Mix together spices in a bowl. Coat pork roast with the spice mix. Place the bay leaves in the bottom of the slow cooker and place the pork on top. Pour chicken broth around the sides of the pork roast, not rinsing off the spice mix. Cover and cook on low for 8-10 hours (I did 8 but my slow cooker seems to cook fast), until the pork shreds easily with a fork. I then took the chunks and put them on a cookie sheet and baked them for 20 minutes to get that nice crust. This step isn't needed, but it makes it that much more delicious! 

Once shredded add to tacos, on nachos, to a salad, a burrito or whatever you fancy. This meal is goooooood! 

Note: This is amazing. :)

Recipe Review: Sour Cream Noodle Bake!

I love The Pioneer Woman, so I knew I had to try her Sour Cream Noodle Bake.  You say sour cream and noodles in one sentence and I am sold, actually I am in love. This recipe is super simple and since I did it exactly how she did you can go see her recipe on her page! 

I will show you some pictures of my SCNB, and let you know that it will definitely be a repeat in this household. Perfect for a rainy day like today!

Our Weekend...

Friday, April 1, 2011

Five Question Friday!

1. Have you ever had surgery?

I haven't, but I have broken my arm pretty bad before. 

2. Ever ride in an ambulance?

Again, I am pretty lucky on this one. I haven't ridden in an ambulance for an emergency, although I have for fun! 

3. How are you in a medical emergency? Panicked? Calm?

I like to think I am pretty calm, and I was when my Dad looked over at me and said "Molly, don't freak out but I think I am having a stroke." That was one of the scariest things I have ever had him say to me. He was having a stroke, but luckily it ended up being okay. 

These are my Dad with Fletcher!

4. Do you have a garden? Flowers or veggies?

I don't, but since this is the first full summer in our house I really want to plan something! 

5. When did you move out of your parents house?

I did for college at 18. Never looked back (except for that one summer I stayed there before I moved to another state)! I love my parents, but I love them even more living outside of their house! 

Facebook Friday!

It is Facebook Status Friday again at A Dollop of My Life! 

"Excited for opening day, but I wish I was there! GO REDS!!!"

"I wanted to watch Prison Wives so Matt asked me "is that what you want to be?" Actually that sounds about perfect on some days. ;)"

"Fletcher told me he wanted Taco Bell for lunch, and when I said no and ate some in front of him when he had peaches for lunch he wasn't happy. Kid needs to work on his teeth first. ;)"

"My favorite day during the week! Coffee, baby, PJ's and Teen Mom 2 (once Fletch is taking a nap)!"

"Cheese is my favorite food group."
