Some people (my sister-ha!) were having trouble finding the recipe so here it is, along with a professional (mouth watering) pic of it!
As I type, the Farmer is grilling corn and hamburgers!! Woohoo!! Grilled has to be the very best way to eat corn..MMM MMM GOOD!!!
On another note, I have decided to take a photography class this fall!! Three classes, as a matter of fact! The community college close to where we live has a continuing education program and is offering them at night! The Farmer thought it would be a fantastic idea too, he is such a sweetie, even though I'm sure he knows this means many more 4-wheeler photography rides! I am soo excited to really learn how to use all the bells and whistles on my big girl camera!! I will keep yall posted on everything I learn!
Ciao for now!

I found a Hash Brown Casserole with Bacon, Onions, and Cheese recipe on the Cooking Light website. It looked yummy, so I got all the ingredients and decided I would make it today for lunch. Of course once I got everything in the dish, I read the rest of the recipe.... it needed to sit 8 hours in the fridge before baking for an hour..it was 11:45!! Oppps!!
We had Turkey sandwiches for lunch!!!
It does look (and smell) good!!

I was shopping the other day, trying to find a cute black dress/pants for Mariah's (one of my bridesmaids) wedding! Raylee (another one of my bridesmaids) and I are Mariah's personal attendants for her big day! We decided to wear black with turquoise accents, since the main color of her wedding is turquoise. So I tried on dress after dress and just didn't fall in love with a thing!!
I wandered over to the shoe department and there they were, the most fabulous turquoise shoes...and on the clearance rack!!
It must have been my lucky day! I grabbed them and held them tight and then realized I should try them on before I squeeze the life out of them! So I tried them on and they fit perfectly! Then comes the not so fun part, checking the price. This is the problem with my shopping habits: I see them, want them, try them on, fall in love, then check the price! They were 58 bucks!! WHAT!?! I thought it said clearance! Sad face!! So I start to rationalize....if I get these I can wear the black pants I already have then I wont have to by a new dress, so it should all even out, WAIT, what's that big yellow sign that says all shoes with a yellow dot were an additional 80% off!!! Quick check to reveal a glorious yellow dot on my turquoise strappy heels!! I handed them to the gal helping me (after she told me they would only set me back 11 dollars) and said let me just look a little more!I just had to have these little western-ish Nine West sandals too! I might can wear them about three times before it starts to snow!! But then I will have a basically new pair of flops come Spring!!!
10 bucks!! Can you believe it?? My Momma and I looked at a pair similar to these to get for the honeymoon and I know they were at least $80!!! And I wont even tell you how much she paid for the sandals I did get for the honeymoon!! I just love a good deal, so I continued the search!
Perfection in a cork wedge!!! They called to me!! They literally had my name written all over them..no really check out the style name- Haylee!! I had to have them!! Another $10!!!

However we were the youngest people (by far) in the theatre and the Farmer was among the 3 guys that got dragged there by their significant other, but it was sold out show, so that says something about it's ratings! After the movie we got McDonalds...I was dying for chicken McNuggets and Sweet Tea!!! Yummo!!! p.s. I have only riden the bike in the grass...it's not doing me much good, YET!!!
Saturday was dedicated to the magazine so it can go to print tomorrow morning, but i finished most of it by 8:00 so we headed over to The Farmer's friend Jared's (Usher in Wedding and he introduced us in Montana!) place for dinner. He and his super fun girlfriend Kati, cooked pork loin, beans, and fresh fruit. It was very tasty and really nice to catch up with them!
Today was a blur of Showbox and sleep...I really need one good day to recover from the wedding (yes still!), being gone, unpacking, re-arranging everything, being sick, and having two publications due at the same time! I wonder if we can go back to the Bahamas!?! Hopefully I will get some time later this week to catch up :) I still have to get my name changed on my SS card, drivers license and all that other stuff that I have been putting off!! UUGGHHH! i hate paper work!
I am suddenly sleepy :) Happy Trails!!

1 can cream of chicken soup
2/3 cup of Mayo
2-3 tsp of Worcestershire sauce
4 cups of cubed chicken
3 cups of cooked chopped broccoli
1 small onion
1 cup of shredded cheddar Cheese
2- 12 oz tubes of buttermilk biscuits
1/2 Sour Cream (I think this was a cup? That's what I used anyway!)
1 tsp dill weed
1 tsp salt
my handy dandy measuring cup from Pampered Chef!
Then you should cover and bake for 20 min...but just in case you forget to cover (like I did!!) it still turns out fine and your Farmer will eat it up anyway!
Then when you take the dish out of the oven you place the biscuits, cut side down, on top of the cheese!
Now pour your topping mixture over the biscuits and bake for another 20 minutes, uncovered (whew!)
