Preschool Update

Hi There and Happy Sunday Funday!

I hope your Sunday is going better than mine. Unfortunately Belle and Hubs have been sick all weekend. Needless to say Ive been home since Wednesday. 

So, preschool was fun for the 3 days she was able to go. She got home sick Wednesday and couldn’t go Thursday. I know that it came from school, but do people really need to remind you how much more sick she can possibly get because shes adjusting? I mean come on, give me a break. Im already going through a hard transition that she is no longer attached to the hip, now you gotta tell me shes might have some crazy colds to brace myself that it could be bad. I mean, I take it with a grain of salt, but lets be honest no first time parent enrolling their kid to school wants to hear that. We know the inevitable will happen, they’re gonna get sick. I just honestly didn’t think it would happen so soon. 

Well, I’m hoping for a smooth week, my priority is for her to recuperate better because her birthday is right around the corner! I want her happy and healthy for her big day! She’s turning, 2! Ah! Where does the time go? 

Well, to another update for preschool. Till then, have a great week & cheers! 



School Time!

Well, Hello & Top of The Morning To Ya! 

Monday October 23rd, had to be one of the hardest days I had to face besides delivering Belle. You guessed it, she started Pk2. I really don’t want to say PK2, because she’s technically a “year” behind because her birthday is in November, but you get the drift. SHE STARTED SCHOOL AND SHES AWAY FROM MOMMA!!!! 

So, the first day went smooth only because I think she didn’t know where she was. When I picked her up the same day she was happy to see me! (Which felt amazing to see her face) I cried pretty much the majority of the first morning. Second day went okay, but she cried when I left so of course I cried as I walked to my car lol. Third day, she knew what was happening, she was okay till we got to the classroom, it felt like I had to shove her and leave. My heart sank, I never felt such a heavy heart ache. Im hoping day 4, goes a little smooth. Lucky its a short week. Friday she won’t be going in (Teacher Planning), we can do our normal hang out that I’m sure she misses right about now. ( I KNOW I DO!) 

I know this is a good thing for her, I can see how its needed for both her and I. Im hoping she enjoys it, I catch myself asking her “So how was your day” thinking I’m going to get a response LOL. She’s 2 Jackie! Come On! 

Wish us luck ill post an update soon! ๐Ÿ™‚




Its A Pizza!

Its A Pizza At Home Night…

Pizza for us is one of those easy go to recipes for us! We’ve done this same recipe in the oven and now we decided to venture and try it in the smoker! AND Boy, was that fun! My Hubbie found this Weber Pizza Stone in one of his trips to Brandsmart. The ingriedients to make at home pizza believe it or not is actually VERY easy! One quick store run, or add the items to your next grocery list! Its fun and easy and everyone and in the family loves it! 

 Weber Pizza Stone found at Brandsmart $40 or so

So, we had the intentions it was going to be “thin” pizza, that obviously didn’t work out! However, it did come out Delicious, Crispy & Crunchy! If you like your pizzas with delicious flavor and crispiness follow the recipe below and ENJOY! ๐Ÿ™‚ 


Dough (I normally get the fresh one from Publix, but you can use frozen just let it thaw with enough time) 

Pizza Sauze (I use store bought, if you want to make from scratch please be my guest!) 

Cheese: Sargento Shredded Italian Cheese and Mozzarella

EVOO (Extra Virgin Olive Oil)


PreHeat Oven to 475F

Grease your pan with EVOO (Extra Virgin Olive Oil)

Roll out your dough, with flour on your surface and on your hands so its easier to work with

Once you have it more or less shaped and spread to your liking, I like to put it a little EVOO on a brush and lightly coat the top part of dough, let it dry for 1 minute. Then, begin to put your pizza sauce. 

Add any of your toppings.. I put salami on mine (I was getting rid of cold cuts) But Ive put pepperoni before, spinach and red onion, feta and red can put sausage, veggies, no meat if you just love cheese! 

Add your Cheese, Some more toppings and Some more Cheese

Put it in the oven for 12-15 minutes, depending on how hot your oven can get. Also, keep in mind how thin or thick you would prefer your crust. I normally like mine to be a little thin and crispy. 

Once its done let it sit for a couple of minutes because it will be HOT!! 

Slice and Enjoy! ๐Ÿ™‚ 

*Tip I like to remove some excess dough to make the pizza pie thin so when it bakes it gets crispy.
