For the love of Darth Vader...

Spencer has become quite the fan of Darth Vader & Star Wars (mainly due to his big brother's Star Wars obsession).  Zach has given him R2D2, Darth Vader and OB1 figurines that Spencer plays with all the time and usually needs one of them when he goes to bed.  We can't find Darth Vader at the current moment so that could make things a little tense in our house right now.

Well, in watching TV last week, this commercial came on and is Spencer to a 'T'.  It is also something Rick would do with Spencer.  He already does this with our sprinkler system and Spencer acts like he's casting a spell on the sprinklers with his Harry Potter wand and then Rick turns them on.  Spencer is amazed!

We really want Spencer to be Darth Vader for Halloween, but we don't think he will wear the mask long enough to really "be in costume".  This might have changed our minds a bit last night...

Egg & Spinach Quiche Cups

These little beauties have been the best breakfast for me for the past two weeks.  They are so yummy & super easy to make.  I of course got them off of Pinterest (the story of my life these days).

The only changes I made to the recipe were adding more onions and red bell peppers and adding cheddar cheese.  You decide how much cheese you want, but I can't imagine them without cheese.  I also added small pieces of ham when I made them last weekend and they are fab as well!  The amount of egg whites in the recipe is not nearly enough for these.  Have your egg whites carton handy and when you fill the cups, "top" them off with the egg whites.  I took them out of the muffin liners (use foil) and put them all in a gallon freezer bag and just pop 2 of them in the microwave for about a minute and a half and there's my breakfast!

Just click on the link below for the recipe.

Bad to the Bone

It was dark outside when we videoed this last night, so it may be a little hard to see.

And now, I give you the best (and the cutest by far) air guitar player I've ever seen...

Tilapia & Veggie Gratin

Well, I tried the first things off of my Pinterest boards for supper last tonight.  I have a lot on my recipe board that I want to try, so I just started with these. 

Click on the link under the picture for the recipes.  They were both SOOOOO good.  I actually took a picture of the "gratin" before I put it in the oven because it looked so pretty. 

My mouth is watering talking about these dishes...they were that good!  We will definitely be eating both of them many more times!

My Life in "Instagram"

I promise I'll get better about blogging like I used to, but school is kicking my tail right now.  It's a good kick, but I'm super busy!

I can't participate in all the "Instagram blogs" because I don't have an iPhone, but I have an app that is similar (picplz), so I'm joining the party even if I wasn't invited!

This is what has been going on lately...

Beautiful flowers from our advisory board at school.  Such a sweet surprise!

Spencer gets to pick from the treasure chest when he gets smiley faces every day of the week.  We now have orange and yellow sunglasses.

Not a lot I can say about this except HILARIOUS!

Couldn't edit this one because it would take away from its greatness!  Homemade peach cobbler made by Rick!

Hope you have a great weekend!
