Chicken Enchilada Pizzas

Time is going so quickly and I can't believe Jude is due in less than 8 weeks. He is growing so big and I love feeling him move around. At my appointment last week, he is actually measuring a week ahead, which was no surprise to me because Justin was a rather large baby and I have a feeling Jude will be a spitting image of his Daddy, which will be fine, because I obviously love me some Justin! :) The pregnancy is going very smoothly and God has greatly blessed us in so many ways. The nursery is almost finished and I think I have begun to become in a "nesting" state. I want everything in order!

On another note, I have not posted a recipe in a while and this is what I made for dinner on Friday night. It turned out REALLY yummy and it's really easy, so enjoy!

Chicken Enchilada Pizzas
-1 lb. cooked chicken (actually used Rotisserie chicken pulled from the bone from the deli and it had great flavor)
-1 cup sour cream
-1 cup Salsa Verde
-1 can black beans, drained and rinsed
-1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
-4 whole wheat tortillas

1. Place tortillas on cookie sheet and broil for 5 minutes or until crispy.
2. While in oven, place chicken, beans, and salsa in skillet and cook on medium heat until warmed through.
3. Spread 1/4 cup sour cream over each tortilla.
4. Spread 1/2 cup chicken mixture over sour cream.
5. Sprinkle 1/4 cup shredded cheese on top.
6. Place back in oven on broil until cheese is melted.

Enjoy! Nursery pictures are to come soon! :)

Before and After

First of all, I wanted to post this picture because I thought it was just plain hysterical. As many of you know, Mason is our "first" son and is really a part of our family. He was snuggling with me the other night on the couch when we both fell asleep and Justin thought it would be funny to make him a "gangster" dog with his tobogan, so yeah, there you go. Poor Mason!

In other news, I got 2 great chairs from a friend of mine who was simply trying to make room in her attic. I have been wanting to paint them and recover them for a while. I knew I needed to get this project done before Jude arrived, so this past Saturday, Justin and I worked on them and this is our finished product! I am very pleased with how they turned out! All we did was sand them and paint them "creamy nutmeg" and recovered those awful stripes with a pale yellow paisley pattern. All the supplies cost less than $20 and they look really great in our dining room. Our dining room set only has 4 chairs so these make great addtional seating, as well as good decorations. I saw some pretty chocolate brown pillows I want to add to them at Target, but we'll wait for February for that purchase. :)
Lastly, I can't post the day after the National Championship win without saying "WAR EAGLE"!

Winter Wonderland Pics from NC

I love this picture of Jillian's face!
Jillian and I all bundled up!

All of the kiddos plus Mason
Immediately following this picture, Justin creamed me with the snowball in his hand.
Needless to say, I absolutely LOVED having snow over Christmas in NC! Maybe we'll get a little in Auburn this weekend...just don't mess up the roads.

Working on Jude's Nursery and Bump Pics

Today I wore this hysterical shirt from Boof and Nat...tomorrow I'll be 30 weeks!
Jude's shelf. Justin painted it and I glued the ribbon. I love how the giraffe print turned out!

The chair thanks to Dee Dee and Pop!

Aunt Jillian thought it would be funny to write on my tummy :)

28 weeks

I have several posts to catch up on, especially since I finally uploaded pictures from my NEW camera, thanks to my sweet inlaws. :) Hope you enjoy the updates!
