31 DBC: Day 27

A Favorite Recipe

Ohhhhhh I have so many!

Chicken Crunch (not fried fried chicken)

1 boneless skinless chicken breast per person.
Crushed stuffing (herb flavored works best) (amount depends on how much chicken)
Melted butter (amount depends on how much chicken)

1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees
2. Crush stuffing (just beat it, or run a rolling pin over it) and put on a plate
3. Dip chicken in bowl with egg in it
4. Roll chicken in crushed stuffing until covered
5. Put chicken on baking sheet (I've learned it works best, and is easiest to clean up, if you put aluminum foil on the pan first)
6. Drizzle melted butter over chicken
7. Bake on 400 deg. for 20 minutes or until cooked through

It tastes just like fried chicken, but it's baked so it's healthy! YUM! You can also add parmesan cheese to the stuffing but it's not necessary.

And Old Photo

The oldest photo I could find of me already online lol. I look just like my kids...or they look just like me LOL!

31 DBC: Day 25

Blogs I Love

I have so many! I get over a hundred email updates from blogs that I follow! I can't pick just one! I have a few on the side bar....and I've been thinking of starting a page on here just for blogs that I follow and love.

31 DBC: Day 24

Favorite Childhood Book

Love You Forever.

After about 6 years old I started reading actual books. My favorites were anything by Shakespeare, Edgar Allan Poe, pretty much any classic novel. At about 8 years old I found a love for anything vampire, especially Bram Stoker's Dracula, and anything by Anne Rice. I've always had a crazy high reading level, and stunned my teachers by reading things they hadn't read until they were much older, or hadn't even dared to read yet! I love reading!

Dream Job

I still haven't decided what I'd like to do as a job! I've been a SAHM since P was born, when I was 15! I've never had a job (outside of babysitting, 1 night at McD's, and working at DQ a few times to help out) and I just don't know if I'll ever get a job. I can't stand the idea! I like being at home, well sometimes. I do miss people, grown up conversations, not having to wipe snot off peoples faces lol. Some things I've thought of doing are being a kindergarten teacher, physicist, psychologist, marine biologist, mythologist (if I ever get a job, that probably what I'll do lol), and many others!

31 DBC: Day 22

Best Thing This Year

For me personally, finding out that we're going to have another baby! Another best thing to happen this year is that P was awarded for perfect attendance (one of only three students in the entire school!) and exemplary behavior and citizenship for the year!  I know, those are her things to be excited about, but she's my little girl and I feel they are some of the most important things to happen this year too!

31 DBC: Day 21

10 Favorite Foods

You would really think that this would be something I could do in 30 seconds, but I love food so much that picking favorites is HARD!

1. Fast food. I know, not healthy, but anything coming through a drive through is awesome to be!
2. Baked Mac&Cheese. It's crunchy, yet creamy, and tastes oh so delicious!
3. Chicken Lo Mein
4. Philly Cheese steak pizza
5. Not fried fried chicken
6. Enchiladas
7. Breaded shrimp
8. Sesame Chicken
9. Nachos with cheese
10. Tornado (IDK what they really are, but they're sold at the gas station DH works at.)

If you ask me again tomorrow I'm sure my answers will be different lol. Ya'll are lucky you didn't get a list of 10 fast food foods LOL!

31 DBC: Day 20

A Difficult Time

I've had a few of these. The worst would have to be when G was born and we didn't know if he would make it or not. Right after he was born, I asked if something was wrong. I swore he looked...different...purple. I was told it was normal. Next thing I know we're being told that his oxygen levels are low and he's being taken to the NICU. His lungs hadn't formed, they may have been wrong about his due date. We spent many of those first few days afraid that he would die. He couldn't live without oxygen. They kept telling us that he may have to go to a children's hospital, over an hour away! He fought though, and he fought hard! He surprised EVERYONE when he came off the oxygen, started feeding normally, and was able to be released after 13 days!!

Pic.1- The first NICU setup.
Pic.2- After a few days he was put in a bubble
Pic.3- A few days later he was allowed to come out of the bubble and be moved into a normal newborn bed! He still wasn't allowed to leave the NICU.
Pic.4- The day he was allowed to come to our room from the NICU. That is my best friend feeding him!

We have the best hospital ever, they allow you to stay in your room if your child is in the NICU, until they are released. The only way you'll have to leave is if the rooms fill up and they need your room, and when a room becomes available again, they allow you to come back.

I Collect

I don't really collect anything. The kids have so much stuff that we would drown in random crap if I started collecting things lol. If I had to pick something I would say clothes. I have so many that there is no way I could wear them all!

31 DBC: Day 18

My Blog Name

Cloth Love Heart came from my new obsession with cloth diapers, and well anything green lol. I spent days trying to figure out what I wanted to name my blog, and finally settled on C.L.H.

31 DBC: Day 17

My Most Proud Moment

I have a few of them. The day each of my children were born, and the day I got married. In October I will add another moment, when baby #3 is born! I can't imagine my life without my kids or husband.

31 DBC: Day 16

Top of my Bucket List

I don't have anything at the "top" of my bucket list...I just have a list. Right now there is already so much on it that it would take forever to tell you, so I'll just give you a link to my Pinterest "Bucket List" board!

Bucket List

31 DBC: Day 15

A Day In My Life

This depends on the week. I work (babysit) every other week. Even on my work weeks my schedule is different every day, because the dad's schedule is different every day. I can do a "pretty much" schedule though!

Wake up, watch some PBS with the kids, eat breakfast.
Watch the kids trash the house out (but hey, they're having so much fun!), possibly go outside depending on weather. Eat lunch.

Play the rest of the day! Eat dinner, play some more, baths/showers for the kids, put the kids to bed.

Then it's mommy time, where I do the clean up from the day, dishes, sweep, mop, vacuum,  take my shower, watch some TV, read a little!

This of course changes during the school year, because we have less play and more homework and family projects (HA! Those are really for mommy to get stuck doing! LOL!) that need to be done.

31 Day Blog Challenge: Day 14

If I Won The Lottery

Oh goddess! If I won the lottery, the things I would do! I would pay off our bankruptcy, help my momma pay off her debts, help my MIL pay off her debts, I would buy a FARM! I want to own my own home, but I will not settle...I want a farm! I'd buy hubby and I each a new car, I'd probably even by my momma and MIL each a new car! I'd put the rest away for the kids to go to college on.

31 Day Blog Challenge: Day 13
