Delicious Burgers!

I love cheese burgers. And the best day for a cheese burger is Saturday! Tomorrow is Saturday, so I figure I better share a great burger with y'all. If it's not too hot outside I suggest grilling these. However, I use a George Foreman for mine. It's WAY too hot in New Mexico to grill outside.
Anyone can cook these. They are so easy. And so delicious. I always over eat when I make these. As does my family.

You will need:
2 Pounds Ground Hamburger Meat
1 Pound Ground Sausage Meat (Any Flavor, I prefer Maple)
2 Eggs
Sliced Cheese
Hamburger Buns
Whatever else you like on your burgers.

1. Begin by mixing by hand the hamburger meat, sausage and eggs.
2. Form meat into hamburgers.
3. Put in fridge for about an hour. If you are in a hurry, put in the freezer for at least 15 minutes.
4. Put on the grill until done until your liking.
5. Put cheese on until it begins to melt.
6. Pull off grill.
7. Put on bun.
8. Add vegetables, mayo, etc.
9. Enjoy!

These burgers are the best burgers around. I really hope you enjoy them! I know I do. :-)

Hand Warmers or Bean Bags. :-)

It's Monday! Who doesn't LOVE Monday's? Its' the day after the weekend. So you are rested and ready to take on the week. :-) Of course, who isn't looking forward to Friday? Today I have decided to post a tutorial on how to make hand warmers and bean bags. :-)

To begin, for ONE you will need:
Two pieces of 5" by 5" fabric
A sewing machine
1/2 cup of rice

1. Cut your fabric 5 X 5
2. Place the fabric cute side to cute side.
3. Sew three of the four edges. Be sure to back stitch where you start and stop!

 4. Trim the edges and corners if you want to. I chose to.

 5. Turn them right side out.
 6. Add your half a cup of rice to ONE of the pouches.

 7. Fold the open edges down into the bag.

 8. Sew the open edge closed. Be sure to back stitch where you start and stop!

All done! :-)
To warm them up, just pop them in the microwave for a short amount of time.

For a rainy day when the kids are saying "I'm bored. What can we do?" and they don't want to clean, cut some holes in a card board box, and have them toss them into it. :-)

These are on my Etsy shop if you would like to just purchase them. They are $5.00 for two hand warmers.

I hope you have a great day! :-)

Finally, Internet!

After the long move, we finally have Internet again. Which means that I get to begin posting on my blog again! :-) Yay! My little McKinzee is two months old today. Man, the last two months have gone by so fast. It's been quite the experience though.

Since moving to New Mexico, I purchased a sewing machine. And oh how I love it. :-) As a little girl I would sit on my grandma's lap and 'help' her sew. Now, I can finally sew myself. I plan to post tutorials on here, but you could also purchase the final product through my new Etsy shop! :-) I know how most people now days don't have a sewing machine, the ability to sew, or just don't have the time to sit down and sew. I use all new materials on my Etsy shop. I am also reasonably priced. You are paying for just the material pretty much. :-) Can't beat that! :-) I love being a mom and creating new things. There isn't much in my shop yet, but soon. Very soon! :-)

I am so excited to have opened my shop and I can't wait to get these items to y'all! :-) Use the coupon code FIRSTTIME for 5% off $25.00 or more. You can also use the code THIRTYFIVE for $5.00 off your purchase of $35.00 or more. They both expire on July 4th, 2013. I will have more on my shop before the 4th. :-)

Thank you all for hanging in there with me and supporting me. :-) I would love to hear from y'all on any of the upcoming tutorials that I post, if you would like to see a specific tutorial, or if you would like to see a specific item in my shop. :-)

My husband thinks I'm an incredible woman, and our babies are the best!!! He told me if I deleted this line he would be very upset. At least everyone knows how much my husband loves us. :-)
