Busy Bee

The students start back tomorrow, although, I have been back for a little over a week now.  It is so much different when the kiddos are there though.  Not sure if I am excited about this year or not.  We will see!

Jessica from Perfectly Imperfect tagged me in a little questionnaire; so here goes!

Here are Jessica’s 8 questions for me:

1. What is your greatest achievement?
This is a hard one!  I would say it is the fact that we are financially sound at the age of 26!  Our cars are finally paid off, we have no debt (minus the house), and we are able to save and have fun all at the same time.  It took a lot of work and we have our ups and downs, but we are very happy with our future!

2. What is your worst habit?
I am a planner and worrier.  When I think of something that I need to do I cannot stop thinking of when I can get it done and what I need to do.  It is annoying and I know it annoys Jeremy too!  Although, he might say something else is my worst habit?!

3. What did you want to be when you “grew up”?
A nurse! HA!  I nearly pass out every time I get blood taken.  Needless to say that major lasted for one semester.

4. What is your favorite childhood memory?
Playing outside with my sisters and neighbors.  We mainly just rode our bikes around and played with sidewalk chalk. =)

5. How did you decide on the name for your blog?
I actually cannot remember!  Odd…..

6. What is your favorite place to go out to eat?
Trulucks is amazing. 

7. What is the last book that you read? (I need a new one friends!)
This is horrible, but I read the first 3 books from the Black Dagger Brotherhood series.  They are vampire books and I have to skip some parts because they are pretty risk-ay!  I am reading No Second Chance by Harlan Coben.  Not very far into it yet, but I like his other books.

8. What is your favorite family tradition? (new or old)
The Texas A&M vs. Texas Tech game!!  We usually win, so that makes it much better.  We are starting an original Jamotta family dinner with just my sisters and parents around Christmas.  Haven’t done that since before the husbands, so it has been years!

Okay, your turn!!  I think I am supposed to make up 8 new questions, but I am going to stick with Jessica’s!  Here are the people that I am going to tag.

Jen @ Lil Mop Top
Allison @ Princess Bella's Diary
Allison @ A Glimpse Inside
Lauren @ The Fabulous Life of Lauren
Tiffany @ Life is... Glamorous and Fabulous

Have fun!!!

Denson Pizzeria

We celebrated my sister, Jen, and my brother in law, Tyler’s, birthdays today at our home.  We wish our grandparents could have been there, but my grandpa is still not doing super well, so we will have to do another event when he gets to come home!  Continued prayers/thoughts for him would be greatly appreciated!

Anywhom!  Jeremy and I decided that today would be a perfect time to try to make homemade pizzas on the grill.  We usually do the normal hotdogs, hamburgers, chicken, etc…. so we opted for something different that everyone had to get involved in.

The only thing I didn’t get from Target was the dough.  We got those at Central Market.  One dough can easily make two personal size pizzas!
From your regular grocery store you need to get corn meal, pizza sauce, cheese, and any toppings that you want.  I got mushrooms, green peppers, pepperoni, and onions.  Worked perfect!

Start your assembly!  Put corn meal ON your pizza tray to help with non-sticking.  Roll out your dough.  We used this roller that had spikes on it (can you tell I don’t cook???) and rolled that on it before saucing.  Why?  Ehh… not sure?!  Sauce your pizza, cheese next, any other toppings you want, and I cheesed again!  MMmmm… that was the trick!

Put a pizza stone on your grill and put some corn meal on that as well.  Slide your pizza on and let ‘em cook!  Easy as that!  Don’t put your grill on high though, maybe medium or lower. 

Of course, I stopped taking pictures at this time because I was running pizzas back and forth and eating for the next two hours.  Awesome!!  Everyone seemed to really enjoy it!  Yeah!

Final Result:  Jeremy and Tyler decided to take a nap while watching the Rangers.  Maybe they ate too much pizza… or maybe, it was the non-coke drinks??

Hard life they lead.

And, fyi, Rangers are now losing 3-0 in the 9th and no outs.  Not looking too promising.

UPDATE!  Jeremy might not love that I am putting this, but oh well.  I am hysterical laughing.  A loud commercial just came on and he popped up but then immediately started talking about something that deals with $50.  I just looked at him and was like what??  He goes you know when you all were getting ready at 5:30 and we were talking about no one wants to go out late anymore and we already eat dinner by then?  I was like no… I have NO idea what you are talking about.  I was laughing at the time, of course.  He tried to explain it more time and he said I was hurting his feelings beause I was laughing.  And, he is now sleeping again.  I love him!

Back to Reality

We got back from Riviera Maya last night and we had so much fun!  The resort was amazing and I would go back there anytime.  Here are a few pictures of our trip.

Onto other exciting news!  I won a free workshop for myself and 6 friends from Atlar'd!!  I could not be more excited!!

Plus, I have this week to get my classroom ready and work registration because next Monday starts teacher in-service week.  How did summer go by so fast?!  No!!  I am not ready.  I just need one more week, PLEASE!
