Mom to "Bee"

It feels like ages ago that we were planning the baby shower for Jorie and Michael (maybe because it was..sorry for such a delay!). I wanted to share a few photos from that day with you all. I'm sure at this point you already know that our sweet girl made her way into the world a few days early and over the past week we have been living in a world of tiny clothes and baby kisses. I am going to share photos of baby girl Klip in a few days, so look forward to that!

Happy Friday everyone! Even though it was a short week (we had Monday off of school), I feel like this week just dragged by. I'm looking forward to an exciting weekend as we celebrate Baby Klip on Sunday at Jorie's baby shower. I can't wait to share pictures with you next week of our fun theme!
Have a great weekend!

Southwestern Stuffed Peppers

I made these the other night for my family and they were a total hit! Not only was this such a simple dish to make, but you just stick them in the crockpot and they are done in time for dinner. Now what could be better than that?


  • 6 Bell Peppers
  • 1 cup uncooked Quinoa
  • 1 14 ounce can Black Beans, drained and rinsed
  • 1 14 ounce can fat free refried beans
  • 1 1/2 cups red enchilada sauce
  • 1 teaspoon cumin
  • 1 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic salt
  • 1 1/2 cups shredded pepper jack cheese


  • Cut the tops off of the peppers and scrape out the ribs and seeds.
  • In a large bowl, combine quinoa, beans, enchilada sauce, spices and 1 cup cheese. 
  • Fill each pepper evenly with the mixture.
  • Pour 1/2 cup water into the bottom of a crockpot
  • Place the peppers in the crockpot so they are sitting in the water.
  • Cook on low for 6 hours.
  • When they have finished cooking, remove the lid and sprinkle on additional cheese. Replace lid for a few minutes to allow the cheese to melt.
  • Serve with any toppings you like!

V-Day Gift Guide

I am SO sorry about the radio silence over the last few weeks. Student teaching has totally gotten the best of me and I have been crazy busy. Add in a big time school project that I am working on too and I have unfortunately put the blog on the back burner. I am going to do my best to keep up, so thanks for sticking with me!

I wanted to share with you a quick Valentine's Day Gift Guide for any of you still struggling to find that perfect gift for someone in your life. Check back this week for a round-up of my favorite Valentine's Day outfit ideas!
