Veggie Pizza

Posted By: Kristi

The same night I made the pot roast, I also made veggie pizza. I know they don't really go together but I was craving them both, so I went for it. I liked it even better than the pot roast, the flavors are delish!

  • 2 (8 ounce) packages refrigerated crescent rolls
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese, softened
  • 1 teaspoon dried dill weed
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic salt
  • 1 (1 ounce) package ranch dressing mix
  • 1 cucumber
  • 1 red bell pepper, chopped
  • 1 green bell pepper, chopped
  • 1 1/2 cups fresh broccoli, chopped
  • 1 carrot, grated


Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Spray a jellyroll pan with non-stick cooking spray.

 This is a jelly roll pan (basically, a baking sheet). I wasn't sure what it was until I Googled it. = )

Pat crescent roll dough into a jellyroll pan. Let stand 5 minutes. Pierce with fork. Bake for 10 minutes, let cool. 

In a medium-sized mixing bowl, combine sour cream, cream cheese, dill weed, garlic salt and ranch dip mix. Spread this mixture on top of the cooled crust. 

Add the cucumber, carrot, bell peppers and broccoli to the top. Cover and let chill. Once chilled, cut it into squares and serve.

 The flavors are amazing, you should really give this one a try. It is perfect for dinner parties or showers!

Crock Pot - Pot Roast

Posted By: Kristi

I finally got my crock pot out and gave a whirl. I made my family pot roast with carrots and red potatoes, it was quite delicious.

Here is what you need:

1 (4 -5 lb) beef roast, any kind 
1 package brown gravy mix , dry 
1 package dried Italian salad dressing mix 
1 package ranch dressing mix , dry 
1/2 cup water 
Carrots and potatoes if desired

  •  If you are adding potatoes and carrots (or other veggies) add them to the bottom of the crock pot.
  • Add the roast.
  • Pour brown gravy, Italian and ranch dressing mixes on top of the roast.
  • Pour water on top of the dried mixes.

Place your crock pot on low and leave if for 7-9 hours. Make sure not to remove the lid while it is cooking, it will prolong the cook time. 

Serve and enjoy!

DIY Wedding Invites

Posted By: Kristi

I recently showed you our wedding invites and promised to give you details later. Well, later has finally come. I have been putting this off because explaining isn't as fun as doing. There are so many details and I don't want to forget anything. = )

One day, I was searching Pinterest when I found this image.

I thought it was pretty cool and decided to make my own. Mine are almost exactly the same, minus the ribbon.

Instead of printing out addresses and pasting them on the luggage tag, I taped the luggage tag onto card stock and fed it through my printer. I have had the best of luck with my printer so far, I have really tested what it can do.

Once I was done with the luggage (packaging), I started on the actual invite. I wanted to make a message in a bottle and quickly decided that I wanted the message (invite) to be cloth. I ordered the boxes, bottles, sand and shells from

My sister, Samantha, was a huge help with making with the actual invite. We lined up the bottles and filled them with a bit of both sand and shells.

Next, I created the invite on my Silhouette machine.

Unfortunately, my Silhouette blade was dull so I had to cut the invites out myself. Otherwise, I could have saved myself a few steps. Instead, I cut out the cloth (fabric) I had purchased for our invites, a little smaller then the card stock and then spray adhesived it onto my card stock.

Once it was stuck onto the card stock, I fed it through my printer.

We then cut them out along the line and tore them off the card stock.

Stephanie let is use her grommet machine so we could add a grommet to the top corner of the invite, making it easier to pull the message out of the bottle.

I fed jute through the grommet and added a circle key label that I stamped with a B (our last name is/will be, Bizon). Here is the completed message in a bottle.

If you have any questions, let me know. = ) I hope you enjoying your weekend!

DIY Wedding Invites - Sneak Peek

Posted By: Kristi

I will share all the details soon, but for now, here's a sneak peek for you!

Hand and Foot Print Wall Art

Posted By:  Stephanie

WARNING:  Throughout this post you will see that she looks miserable.  For the record she made lots of funny faces but never cried. = )

As you may remember we are going to be working on Lou's big girl room and I have slowly been accumulating a few things for the room once it's done.  On this random night I decided it was craft time and we needed to make a little something for her room.

She's ready!

We picked two colors that will match the bedding in her room.
Purple for her hands and pink for her feet.

She liked seeing her hand prints on the canvas.

See, looks like she is crying but I assure you, she was not.
I was having fun with this as you can tell haha!

The finished product.  

We used a very thin canvas that we will either just hang on the wall or frame.  I haven't decided yet.  I'll make sure you see it when it's in the room.  Lou's favorite part of this project was washing her feet in the sink.  My favorite part is having something that she will be able to keep for years and eventually show her kids some day.

Empty Walls

Posted By: Kristi

Wedding invitations went out today so by the end of this week I can finally share what I have been up to! Love crossing things off of my list. = )

Other than the fun wedding details, I have been getting a few house "to dos" crossed off my list as well. Do any of you have bare walls in your house that bug you but you can't decide what to hang? Please say I am not alone? Well, I finally figured out what to hang on one of those walls. I found these sticker dog photos at Michaels and framed them. I love the feminine/masculine feel of the frames. I am happy with the outcome!

I would like to show you a more zoomed out view but I have other things to show you that I haven't had a chance to post yet. Soon friends, soon... ; )
