My Munchkins & Their Shows

Heyyyyy everybody! So my life has literally become overrun with the shows my children watch. I can’t even tell you how many toys we’ve bought of these characters, the kids clothes and even planning for their bedrooms. Ugh🤐

Like for instance my son Elijah, he’s totally in love with Daniel tiger and Blaze and the monster machines. We got him a tablet for his birthday and OMG I can’t take it. 😨 I downloaded the Daniel tiger app. What a big mistake that was!!!!! All he does is play the damn theme song over and over all day. If i could pull out each one of my locs one by one i would. Lol 😂  One thing that I love about Daniel tiger is the fact that it’s based off of the former show Mr.Roger’s neighborhood. All the characters names are of the characters on the Mr.Roger’s show.

Now my daughter Léa on the other hand she’s super into Peppa pig AAANNNNNDDDDDDD Daniel Tiger!!! 

😣 nooooooooooooooooooo(Long dramatic scream on the inside)

In my house it’s like an on-going marathon. They have literally watched every season of Peppa and Daniel x10. A bit mundane if you ask me.😐

Peppa_Pig

When I first saw Peppa pig it was the most annoying show ever, but it grew on me.

But now I can literally sing every song on all 3 shows.

Look don’t judge me…..I’m just a big kid inside.

 

All in all i actually like watching these shows with them even though, I complain about them.

Okay I’m going to stop ranting about these damn cartoons now!

Not Your Momma’s Pancakes

Heyyyyy everybody!!!!! So this morning I woke up and was going to make just some regular old pancakes and decided to make them with a twist. So I added some BACON!!!! Who doesn’t love bacon with pancakes. So why not make pancakes with strips of bacon right smack dab in the middle of them. I absolutely love bacon so much I even use bacon flavored syrup!!…. Look don’t judge me.😋 I’m just a bacon lover and always will be.😍❤🐷

I surprised my munchkins with them this morning and we couldn’t get enough. So I had to share these bacontastic cakes with you guys.

INGREDIENTS

•Approx. 3c All-purpose organic flour

•1T Raw cane sugar

•Approx. 2c Almond milk

•4tsp Baking powder

•2tsp Himalayan sea salt

•1 Egg

•11pcs Center-cut bacon

•2T Butter

If you want you can follow whatever recipe for the pancakes as you please. I’m sorry but I’m not much of a person who measures unless it comes to my cakes. If you’re a person who likes a fluffy/thick pancake like me keep the batter thick but still pourable. If you like thinner pancakes add some extra milk to thin out the batter. Don’t make it soupy though.

So let’s get this thing started!!!

1. Just make your pancake batter and set it aside while you cook your bacon.

2. Cook your bacon until crispy and golden. Once that is done drain the bacon of its oil. I just lined a baking sheet with paper towels. Make sure not to just throw the bacon onto the paper towels, or it will curl up and you don’t want that for these. Lay it flat and straighten it out.

Now that the bacon is done let’s move on.

3. Now pull out that batter you set aside.

4. Butter a new pan to make the pancakes in. Keep it at a medium flame. Let it heat for about 30secs don’t burn your butter.

5. So as pictured pour pancake batter into strips. Place a piece of bacon in the middle and spoon some batter over it in a zigzag pattern. Or if you want the bacon to be fully covered; cover it.

6. Once the edges start to look golden and you can see that the pancakes is more than half way cooked through flip them bad boys over.

There you go!! Now you can use them as bacon pancake dippers for the kids (that’s what the munchkins got), just eat them plain or do what I did and eat them in a stack topped with syrup and crumbles of bacon as a garnish!!!! Yummy right?….. You bet your sweet ass they were!!!!😀😎

My Chunky Mermaid TN

Ok so i was so tired of not being able to find what I wanted in a midori/fauxdori travelers notebook. So I took it upon myself to give me what I wanted. Im the type that wants to put my entire life into a midori. I dont want to have to carry multiple TN or have to switch the notebooks depending on whats going on. So after I saw the ZenKraft Mermaid’s Tale Field Notes Bi-Fold: by Yochanan Israel. It inspired me to make my own.

I was so determined to find this Mermaid tail leather that is basically non existent, and when I tell you I searched far and wide for it I searched far and wide. I love Yochanan Israel’so work and I have a quad fold zencraft travelers notebook from him I reviewed it awhile back. I’ll link it below.

My NEW MTN!!!! – http://wp.me/p4MwJ9-5K

In this Chunky Mermaid TN I made it has 8 rainbow elastic insert strings and can definitely hold a lot more than 8 notebooks if need be. It is a trifold travelers notebook with 2 elastic closure bands to hold all the goodness in.

Ok So…. enough with all the extra details let’s get too this Chunky Mermaid I made………..

Here she is!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I bought leather, cut the size I wanted, glued it with leather glue to make sure it was double sided and then added rainbow elastic string. I bought the string and crystal charm at Michael’s and ordered the leather online. Yea i did my thing on this TN and I’m not afraid to say it. Here is what is inside. Each notebook I bought had blank covers, I also bought a pvc clear zipper pocket and 2 folder pockets.

The first part of my TN is a Dashboard to keep all sticky notes and whatever I want to keep there. The next is a Notes and common place book where I keep notes and random things. The last notebook is where I keep DIY beauty, bath and household products. Which I will start making post about at a different time. So be on the look out!!

The following notebooks are a DIY wine, ales & spirits book. There are some folders, to-do book and a hobonichi journal I made myself on a small grid notenook I bought from Japan.

The red notebook is a  Daily journal/diary. Next is a blank calendar I decorated fabulously.

The All Things Me notebook is basically everything that I’m kind of doing like my workout routine, TV series I’m watching and whatever else going on in my life. Also pictured above is the PVC pocket insert I bought to keep all stickers and stencils.

Last is a craft paper notebook that I turned into a family photo album that I can add to and take with me no matter where I am.

I love my Chunky Mermaid TN and I hope you guys did too.

Never Give Up!

No matter what happens in life. Don’t let situations or depression get you down. If you’re feeling down try everything you can to pull yourself out of whatever you’re going through. I may feel like its too hard to do so but you’re strong enough to do anything. If you need to find a new hobby, go for a walk or even try to speak to someone you love. Just know, no matter what you are going through you don’t have to do it alone. So try to smile more or do things that make you smile. If you don’t here it often i’ll say it to you, I love you!! Don’t ever give up on yourself or your happiness!
