pita pizza!



set your oven high. brady set the oven at about 425 degrees F.

the pita bread was bought pre-made at the local grocer. i sliced and cooked spicy sausage links and garlic. i then layered sliced mozzarella cheese, sliced tomatoes, the garlic and sliced sausage, arugula, and spinach on the pita bread. finally, i put the pita pizza in the oven, straight up on the rack for about 5-7 minutes until crisp. allow to cool and enjoy!!

of course you can add anything on your pita pizza. it's a simple meal and cleaning is pretty breezy!

cook more, cook together, and enjoy!

have a great weekend, friends!

Oh, Hi guys!



Been super duper busy running around like my head is cut off. When I am done with my job, I usually hit up a quiet space to get other work completed for stuff you probably don't want to know because who reads this anyway?

Anyway... just wanted to let you know that I'm alive and enjoy my time away from home when I get the chance (mostly weekend). You probably know what I do anyway... spend the majority of my time getting an uneven tan. Yep. :)

So, Brady and I went to the "Turtle Pond" last weekend and my gosh, this is the first time in awhile that I've seen this many turtles. It was cute that we saw a few carps in the pond as well.

Yep, so pretty much... been sitting my eyes behind the screen and getting paperless paperwork completed before the June comes.

So... That's it for now. Hope you are all doing fabulous. You know where you can find me if you need me!
But social media wise... Instagram /// Facebook /// Twitter /// e-mail: jeanyous@hotmail.com


Have a great rest of the week!! :) :)

explore more



Near or far, explore more!

After being cooped up in the house for a few days of being sick, I wanted to get out!! This past weekend, Brady and I packed some snacks and water where he drove us to Interstate State Park, (Taylors Falls). I can’t recall the last time I was there, but it was so beautiful to revisit.

I can’t believe I have been braving to inch nearby the edge of the cliffs. I’m so ticklish (scared) and curious at the same time that I do want to see what’s beyond the cliff though I already know, but I’m a sensory kid, therefore, I need to see it.

It was a nice day trip as I knew the next day, I just wanted to accomplish things around the home. I have been looking at maps to see where we will venture off to next. Wherever that may be, I am excited.

Are you into hiking? What are some of your favorite spots?

just my luck.


i will share some stories that brady and i are just as normal as anyone else because sometimes things may look better than it is on social media. nope. we're human.

we had a great time during spring break at lutsen mountains, but as we were going down hill back into town for little snacks and water, we were pulled over and received a first ever speeding ticket (i won't say which one of us received it). i thought it was ludicrous that cops wait at the bottom of the hill to clock you. sure, we brushed it off and didn't let it ruin our trip, but it gets worse. (i'm laughing over here).

an hour before check out, we bring our bags and snowboards to the car and hands full, the car keys got locked in the trunk of the car (again, i won't say who committed this). yep, you read that right. four hours from home. luckily, help was only fifteen minutes away and $80 poorer.

we just laugh about it now.

we get back home from our spring break trip, have fun with a few of my nephews over. i spend the weekend with my folks and bam! - i have the flu! (along with a few handful of my niece and nephews). at least, i didn't catch lice like a few of my other family members did (i won't mention whom). i think i would have gone a little nuts if i caught lice. i already experienced that as a kid AND adult. no fun, at all!!!

i have another car story... we drove up for a hike, an hour and a half away from home and the muffler dies out on us. now, this car, she's our baby. she was so loud! luckily, we have a warranty on the muffler (thanks, brady) and brady is the mechanic in our household. so, we didn't lose money there. whew.

i'm sure i have a few more stories, but forgot because it hasn't been our luck lately, but we are not letting it keep us down! we are just working with it and moving along because life is too short to sit around here and be miserable. i feel some good streaks rolling around sometime soon.

i guess, when it rains, it pours. -- do you believe in that saying?

create something


i haven’t had the motivation, but as of yesterday, i’m on a roll. i have been staying off my lazy bones. i might want to thank being ill for a few days and the weather. i think that motivated me to get off my butt because being ill and being forced to stay in bed pretty much was lame.

create somethinganything! i’m not at all perfect with what i do, but i like what i do and like trying new things. i am curious and like to explore. if i failed, at least i know that i tried.

something that motivates me on creating something is making a list and/or drafting it. for instance, i have a new baby niece arriving this summer and aside of the little purchased gifts from the target store, i am making the rest of the gifts. i made a list of what i wanted to make and then draft on how i will make them. i am excited because i hope that the people i make these things for feel extra special because a lot of time and thought are put into this kind of stuff. also, i love that no one else in this world will have these things because i do not like to duplicate what i make. i know i feel extra special when i am given handmade things, especially if that person made it for me. it kind of makes me cry, maybe behind closed doors if not in front of them.

well, i hope this helps you a little to create something. i've been on a hiatus of creating anything for the longest. i will try my best to share all the things i make once baby is born (July).

what will you make next?
