{Recipe} One-Eyes

When you have chickens you get lots of eggs.
Yep, just call me Captain Obvious! HA!

One of our favorite ways to eat those eggs is making "One Eyes".

Tear a hole in a piece of bread.

Sometimes I use cookie cutters to make fun shapes,
like a heart for Valentines Day or a star for 4th of July.

Place both pieces on a buttered frying pan(med/high heat).

Crack an egg into the hole and cook until the bottom is cooked.
To check if it is ready to flip I lift a corner and if no egg spills out
I know we are good to go!

Flip it over and let it cook until nice and sealed.
The egg whites will be cooked through, but the yolk will be soft still.

Brooklyn loves these and asks for them all the time...they are a favorite around here.

Have you ever had these?
I know there are other names for this recipe, but we have always called them "One Eyes"

Haircuts and Cast Removal

Today was a busy day.

Me and the kids went on a nice long walk, then came home and played and ate lunch.
When I put Travis down for his nap Brooklyn and I went to get haircuts.

BEFORE: Look how long it is!

AFTER: Adorable layered bob.

We have an after haircut tradition of going to Coldstone for ice cream but I didn't get any pics of that because we ran into some friends and I didn't want to look like a bloggy freak.

Brooklyn and I with our much shorter hair.

 After our haircuts I dropped Brooklyn off 
and picked up Travis to take to his Dr appointment.

Travis and I in the waiting room at the Dr's office...
waiting to see if he gets his cast off or gets a new one.

One last shot of him in the cast.

They sawed off the cast and he was so happy to have 2 legs again:)

They did more x-rays and the Dr said that he was 80% healed and that he didn't want to put another cast on him. He told me to keep him from running, jumping and climbing for at least the next three weeks.

Yeah, right! Is he freaking serious?!?! Has he met my son?
I am going to be a nervous wreck making sure he doesn't hurt himself again.

I took him home and put his stinky hadn't-had-a-real-bath-in-three-weeks self in the bathtub straight away!
Our kittens are currently living in the bathroom so it was a real party.

Me and my cast-less, bathed little boy:)

This is my life and I love it!

How to remove wax from Scentsy Warmers

Two weeks ago I got my very first Scentsy order!
(I know, I am a little late to the party, but at least I made it)

This is my kitchen warmer.
Lovely, yeah?

It was time to change the scent, but I forgot to do it while the wax was in liquid form.

I took the top part off (with the wax in it),
and put it into the freezer for about 10 minutes.

Then I took a butter knife and slid it around the edge and it popped right out!

Wipe out the inside, put the new scent in
and place the old wax into a plastic bag to reuse later.

This little tip also works for regular candle holders that have melted wax in them.
You're welcome!
