Saturday Breakfast: #2

Last weekend, Nick and I had my old college roommates over.  On Friday, Lindsey, Jude and Angie came over for dinner and to hang out.  We had a blast!

Jude and Lindsey spent the night, and Nick insisted that I make Monkey Bread for breakfast on Saturday morning.  Monkey Bread is really easy to make, so I agreed.  

I took 4 refrigerated biscuit containers and cut each biscuit into quarters.  Then, Jude tossed the pieces in sugar and cinnamon and layered the bundt pan with the sugary goodness.  Next, we poured melted butter, sugar and cinnamon on top and baked the bread for about 45 minutes.  Lets just say it was amazing, and we demolished it!

Today's weather makes me extremely uncomfortable.  I do not like this wind and warm weather, but I especially do not like the tornado warnings and watches.  

When I was a senior in high school, my house was hit by a tornado.  The whole second story was taken off.  It completely destroyed my room and most of my possessions.  Luckily, I was not home at the time, but this weather still makes me very uncomfortable.  It is a fear that slowly creeps over my body.  I try very hard to ignore the raging wind and the many warnings popping up on Facebook....and now the siren outside.....time to go to the basement of Bracken!

Be safe!


3 Months

We did it! 

Nick and I have officially been married 3 months.  
So far our married life is....AWESOME!  Mostly we hang out: cook, watch Netflix, play board games, watch T.V., read books and relax.  I am absolutely loving being married.  It is amazing what it is like to have everything you want.  Nick and I have been waiting to get married for a long time.


Saturday Breakfast: #1

My favorite meal of the day is breakfast.  I'm not sure why, but it always makes me think of cool mornings with the windows open, no homework and movie marathons.  As a result, Nick and I usually eat pretty good Saturday morning.  Saturday's are the only days that we do not have a reason to get up early, and we take advantage of that. 

Last Saturday, I made french toast.  During the week, my mom and step-dad came to visit, and we had some leftover french bread from our meal with them.  I cut the bread into slices; mixed together 2 eggs, about a cup of milk, a teaspoon or two of vanilla and lots of cinnamon; soaked the slices and voila!

On our nightstands

Nick and I are big readers.  Our 3 shelved bookcase is stuffed full of books (some are even hidden behind the smaller books).  I thought that since we read so much, it might be nice to share what we are reading right now.

Nick- He has been reading this book for a while now.  He got through A.J. Jacob's The Year of Living Biblically very quickly, but has been taking his time on Know-It-All.

Lauren- I am in a class all about Jane Austen; therefore, I've been reading a lot of books about and by her.  Mansfield Park is the current assignment in my class.  We also have to do a pop culture assignment on her, and I am doing mine on The Jane Austen Book Club by Karen Fowler.


Tea Time

Over the past month or so, Nick and I have both had sore throats off and on.  The only remedy was hot tea.  There began my quest (that's right, I said "quest") to find my favorite hot tea.  Let me tell you, there are a lot of options, and I have only just begun my search.  

I decided the best way to start the search was a Twinings' Tea Variety Pack.  The pack consisted of Early Grey, Lady Grey, English Breakfast Tea and Irish Breakfast Tea.  I've tried all of them and must say my favorites are the English Breakfast and Irish Breakfast.  The two Grey's are just too citrus-y for me.  Don't get me wrong; I enjoy oranges and grapefruits by themselves, but orange flavor should not be mixed with tea, in my opinion. 

I'm not sure where this quest will take me next, but I'm excited to go grocery shopping this weekend and tackle the tea aisle once again.  I will not rest until my quest is accomplished!



Motivation....where did you go?  
Once upon a time, 
all I wanted was to do homework.  
I wanted to keep busy 
and could not stand sitting on the couch for an 
entire day
Now, you have left me.
I cannot wait until the day
when there is no more homework.

But, oh motivation, I need you.
How am I ever to graduate
in 2 months if you do not show up.


Out of Commission

I have been out of commission since Sunday.  As a result, Nick has taken over house duties, as well as entertaining-Lauren duties.  He has stepped up to the plate nicely.  He made me chili and has done the dishes and laundry (well kinda).  

Since I have been on sitting rest, I've been thinking of my favorite TV Shows and have been Netflix-ing them like it is my job.  So here goes:

Now sadly, Netflix would not let me watch all of them instantly on the Wii, but I was able to watch all of Bones.  I just thought I would go ahead and mention some of my other favorites.
