Deviled Eggs

I just wanted to make a quick post of these really
delicious deviled eggs I made last Sunday.

I honestly thought they were not going to be eaten because in this family everyone is picky as to what they eat. To my surprise they ate all of it:) That made me happy.
Here is the recipe:

1 dozen eggs
2 teaspoons dijon mustard
1/3 cup mayonnaise
1 Tbsp minced onion or shallot
1/4 teaspoon tabasco
Salt and pepper

1 First hard boil the eggs.   Fill up a large saucepan half-way with water and gently add the eggs. Cover the eggs with at least an inch of water. Add a teaspoon of vinegar to the water (this will help contain egg whites from leaking out if any of the shells crack while cooking). Add a pinch of salt to the water. Bring the water to a boil. Cover, and remove from heat. Let sit covered for 12-15 minutes. Drain hot water from pan and run cold water over the eggs.  Let sit in the cool water a few minutes, changing the water if necessary to keep it cool.

2 Peel the eggs. Using a sharp knife, slice each egg in half, lengthwise. Gently remove the yolk halves and place in a small mixing bowl. Arrange the egg white halves on a serving platter.

3 Using a fork, mash up the yolks and add mustard, mayonnaise, onion, tabasco, and a sprinkling of salt and pepper. Spoon egg yolk mixture into the egg white halves. Sprinkle with paprika.

Happy Thanksgiving.

Happy Thanksgivng everyone! I know it was
 yesterday but Im a tad late on this post.

We had a great Thanksgiving as always with my family:)  I did want to share some of the sneak peeks from the session we had about two weeks ago with Joyous moments photography. I love them all!

I also wanted to share some pictures from my time at walmart for Black Friday. It was really fun, some people got hurt but thankfully we were ok.
We got a mini chopper, a waffle maker,some barbies, books, a camera, a wii game, some pillows, Dvd and lots of frames.

Miscellany Monday

Marine Corps Ball-This past weekend we had the Marine Corps ball in Corpus Christi, which is in Texas about 300 miles away from the town I live in. Which is not too bad, it takes about 2 hours to get there. We had a good time, my husband had waayyy too much time though if you know what I mean. He had way too much to drink and we ended the night early because the husband needed to sleep it off already. It was great though to relax with our friends.

 We stayed at the Omni hotel and everyone always says it's amazing and what not. To be honest I hated it, not only was there no complimentary breakfast but the internet was not free, then there was only 10 cable channels. It's terrible. I mean it's extremely nice hotel but I could have gotten something better for what I paid but since the ball was downstairs it was just more convenient.

My Girls:) We are missing one of our other Friends,she could not make it to the ball

 This is the view from our hotel room-It was overlooking the USS lexington

 This was the view from my Friends room

 It looked so pretty when we sat down:)
 This is a terrible picture of us but I left my dlsr camera at home
and just had my phone on me.
My dress:)

Not a drinker- So Im not really a drinker but I do love to drink occasionally. And when I mean occassionally I mean like once every 7 months. I had heard these two bottles were really good. So when Jaime and I found them at the PX we took them:) I still have not tried Skinny girl but the other was pretty good. I didnt have too much because I was trying to take care of my husband at the ball.hehe

State Trooper- So my husband is trying to get a job as a state trooper, Im really nervous for him but Im praying everything runs smoothly. They have called him to put in some paper work that he still needs and then I think they are going to review it. So Im praying so hard for this to happen for him. We need some good thoughts headed our way.

Black Friday- Ok who is ready for Black Friday! I am getting so pumped for it! I dont think Jaime and I are going to sleep for 8 hours to wait up for all the sales. Im excited and we really have our eyes on just a couple of items but Im still so excited.
Thanksgiving- I cannot wait for some turkey on Thursday. All of the family will be back under one roof. Yay! So just in case I am not here till after Thanksgiving....

Happy Thanksgiving:)

Prop Box:Carnival/Circus theme

I had trouble looking for ideas for my prop box with my theme for one of my classes, so I just wanted to take some time and give others who might need some ideas for a Circus/Carnical theme propbox.

 I am not for putting a whole bunch of decoration to where it looks cramped and just gross, so something simple and colorful for the boxes on the themes is great. Then maybe add a label of what Theme it is.

 You got your whip (need to becareful with that), a tie, clown hair, colorful hats

 You have to have animals, they are the entertainment.

 These should be bigger,they were just the originals. These would be some wall pictures for the Dramatic play area.

 This is a small activity. The clowns have a bow with a different color on each and there are bows loose that they students need to match with the right bow on the clown.
 Words with pictures

Need to have some math in there. Some money and Admit one tickets are great for that.

Have fun making your prop box:)

Weekend Recap

So I have to say that being without Interenet is probably one of the worst feelings ever. Maybe now #1 but top 10 at least. My modem had a red light for the internet and usually it's green. I tried calling At&t and they were already closed for the weekend. Oh lord, I really hate being without internet, Never again. I have been trying to get my husband to get internet on my phone but my husband can be so ancient in technology:P
Anyways back to our weekend.

On Friday we celebrated Veterans day with my husband of course.
First off he bought me Harry Potter Part2! I should have been buying him presents but this was an Im sorry gift for something dumb he did:P
I have to say that I cant wait to read all the books to Megan. Im missing some books but hopefully Jaime will buy the ones Im missing for Christmas.

We also went to a little honoring Veterans day at my little sisters school.
They sang and named some of the veterans that were in the room.

 Sorry for the low quality on the pictures they were takin with my Ipod.

Before we left to Golden Corral for dinner my dad surprised us with two pups, they look no more than a year. Its a female and a male, they are the cutest. I already went on a walk with them this morning. They are a great motivation to go walking with.

Yummy!!! Dessert is always good.

Saturday we took our family pictures with Joyous moments photography. She was wonderful, she has so much patience with Megan. Megan of course was so shy but she did amazing. I cant wait to see how they came out.

Sunday we had a Barbeque. Yummy yummy! We spent most of the day outside It felt wonderful. We walked the pups, we cleaned my car it really needed a clean. I hope we have more sundays like that. That's pretty much most of our weekend.

I hope ya'll had a great weekend too.
