he married me 17 years ago.....gave me 2 beautiful boys....has provided for us as well as given us his whole heart. he is a GREAT father. he always takes time for his boys..whether its golfing with them, playing PS3 games with them, taking them to the bookstore, taking them on a late night DVD run.........the list goes on and on and on. he truly is a great man!

I know its not easy being married to today, i am thankful for Mr. Craftyvegasmom. I love you!!!

Quilters Cookbook

Quilter's Cookbook
I have entered a recipe in the quilters cookbook being created over at the quilters blogger site. I LOVE cookbooks!!! I have an entire cupboard full.....but really dont use them that much. Its just something I guess I collect. Which means I jumped at the chance to enter a fav recipe and a pic of my quilt!!!

check it on the link.

sister FINALLY!

here is my sisters quilt!!! ISNT IT ADORABLE? I love the green kona fabrics. it goes SOOO well with the black/white! the funny thing is the pics are from her front porch. live in the country.... im jealous.
she loves to curl up on the porch and read, so i hope this quilt keeps her warm! HAPPY BIRTHDAY KRISTIE. LOVEYA!

Breakfast Pizza

sister loved her quilt and is going to send me some cute pics today......

BUT i just made a great easy breakfast!! Everyone LOVED it that i had to share. this recipe came from a friend/coworker of mine in North Dakota---Fargo. They sure can cook up there! its a must try!

Breakfast Pizza

1 tube of crescent rolls
1 cup crumbled cooked sausage
1 cup frozen hash browns (thawed)
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
chopped onion
5 eggs
1/4 cup of milk
Preheat oven to 375Take a round pizza pan. Separate your crescent rolls along the perforated edges. Arrange the triangles with the points towards the center. Press the edges together to form the pizza crust. Sprinkle sausage, hashbrowns and cheese over the crust. Top with onions. Beat the milk and eggs. Pour over the pizza mix. Bake for 30 min until crust is brown.

I used 2 tubes of crescent rolls and use a big long cookie sheet to bake in. Then I just add more hashbrowns, cheese and another egg or two. Works great with bacon or ham too!Enjoy!

next time im going to try and add a layer of sausage gravy...for some added breakfast flavor.
