Stock the Bar

Saturday night Mike and I finally had our housewarming "Stock the Bar" party and the first party at our house since we moved in. Here are some of the many pictures from the night!

Of course what would a party be without Cigars

and cornhole ? (Thanks Devin for letting us borrow your set even though you couldn't make it to our party)

We surprised Holly with a birthday cake because her birthday had been earlier this week! Unfortunately Mike and Dave did not pick up any candles so we had to use a candle from the dinning room. Next time I think I will do the shopping.

I had got Tyson with silly string earlier in the night (sorry there is not a picture, mike had the camera) little did I know that our neighbors had some at their house and let Tyson get me back.

Flip Cup!

Mike and I decided we were going to get everyone to sign the "stripper pole" this is Grady hard at work.

Of course Tank loves it when people are here, because he gets spoiled with human food.


Mike.. ......who knows

Liz got to come for a short time after work!

Keith and Amy putting the pole to good use

And of course the night ended by attacking Matt Falls who passed out early and then..

Mike and Jon attacking each other.

The end results. I think it was a success!!

Thanks to everyone that made it out here we were so glad that we had a good turnout and the weather held out as well. (Sorry if I didn't get you in a picture on here. I tried to use the ones that came out the best. )We had a great time and we can't wait to have more parties at our house!

The Bucket List

So this past weekend my parents came to town for Father's Day. However, they did not arrive in SC until Saturday. Mike worked Friday night until 9 and then rented a movie, The Bucket List. It stars Morgan Freeman and Jack Nicholson. The story is about two older men that have just been given a short time to live. They meet in the hospital after numerous sessions of radiation they come up with an idea of a "Bucket List" or things they would like to do before they "kick the bucket." There are some fun things like sky diving and my favorite, "Witness something truly majestic." I had seen previews for this movie and definitely wanted to see it, however the previews only showed the funny parts. So I was thinking of Queen Latifah's Last Holiday which was just a corny little movie where she finds out in the end that her results go mixed up. Anyways, little did I know, or think it would be such a tear jerker. I am not one to cry a lot, I rarely cry at movies, and if I do it is probably because an animal has died, not a human. This movie is an amazing story of friendship and makes you hope that everyone out there has a friend like they found in each other. I know the reviews were not good, and I hate to cry, but it truly was such a touching movie. I would recommend it, just make sure you have a box of tissues, because yes you will cry, but smile simultaneously.

Recipe.. breakfast style

Okay so breakfast is by far my favorite meal to make here is a quick simple easy recipe that is also great for tailgating for noon games!

Crescent Roles Casserole

What you will need:

Two packages of Pillsbury Golden Fluffy Crescent Rolls
1 pound of sausage ( I use the jimmy bean mild)
4 eggs (I use egg beaters but regular eggs work too)
2 cups of cheese ( I use Kraft Fat Free Sharp Chedder)

Cook sausage in pan until all the pink is gone. Open one roll of crescent rolls and lay it flat in casserole dish. smooth the edges where they are perferated. In a bowl mix sausage, cheese and eggs(uncooked). Pour mixture on top of crescent rolls. Unroll second crescent roll and lay it on top in pan. Cook according to time on crescent roll package. Some oven times may vary.

Its delicious and easy!!
