New jewelry, pizza dough recipe and other things!

So I had a premier jewelry party recently, and just for having one, and having some great friends over I got all this for free! Love Premier and my friends who came, and of course my friend Lisa who sells it! There are a pair of gold hoops as well, however I had to put them on!

                                                 I love this turquoise set, cant wait to wear it!

So most every Friday we have pizza. After many years of buying it, I ran across this recipe of frozen pizza dough over at brown sugar toast and ever since I have been making it! It is so easy and cheap!

Freezable Pizza Dough

2 Tbls active dry yeast
2 cups warm water 
2 tsp sugar
5 cups flour (I use half white and half whole wheat)
4 Tbls olive oil
2 tsp salt

In a large bowl, dissolve yeast in water.
Mix the rest of the ingredients with the yeast mixture.
Dump on floured surface and knead for 3 minutes
Divide dough in half
If freezing; Seal tightly in a freezer bag & store in freezer for up to 6 weeks.
When baking; Allow to thaw at room temperature for at least 4 hours. Roll onto greased pan, top with desired toppings, and bake at 500 degrees for 10 minutes or until golden brown. 

I also use this dough to make Stromboli! -see below picture

This weekend my husband and Logan will be cutting down a huge tree that fell over from a past storm about a month ago. Isnt it HUGE? It was crazy, it just blew down!!
Its actually our neighbors tree, however they have been kind enough to let us have the wood, since that is how we (and most others in our area) heat our house during those cold winter months. My son is very excited about this project...... He cant wait to spend his whole weekend doing this!

I on the other hand will be painting these lovely garbage picked items!! Aren't they awesome? The bench is a glider! I plan on painting them white. I will post an after pic when completed. 

Enjoy your weekend! :-)
