Time to brag!

My darling husband received a promotion today at work. He is now the newest store managers of his company. He starts officially on Monday. He signed all the paperwork today!

I am so proud of him. He has worked very hard to get this promotion and he deserves it! I will try to get a picture of him soon in his new store. They will be opening the store in the next two weeks.

Today Art, Art's dad and I went fishing. When I first started fishing here in California I always caught fish and sometimes the largest fish. Well since I have become a Post I no longer catch any fish. I always come home empty handed. I told Art today it's his fault. If I had kept my Fischer name I would continue to catch fish.

Here is a picture of me and the largest fish I ever caught. A salmon it was over 20 pounds. I was very proud of this fish!!!!!!!! I believe it was the second largest fish of the day. Some little punk kid caught a 50 pounder. I was not happy he beat me in the end.

My "City" Garden

Red Peppers, Green Peppers, Onions, and Sweet Basil

Tomato's & Chives
Here are pictures of my "city" garden. I grew up on a farm and we had a large garden every year. I have started to miss gardening. This year I decided I was going to make one on the patio. I can't put a lot out there. I used the tubs from our wedding and filled them with dirt & plants. I can't wait to see everything start growing. Just call me Farmer Post

Spare Room

Our spare room has felt like a dorm room to me since we moved in. I see other blogs of people fixing up their homes and think man I want that...well I finally got sick and tired of our door room and spent all day fixing it up. It still has a long way to go but here are some pictures.

Closet Before

Closet After
I need to get some bins to put on the shelves.

Curtains - I got a bargain for them at Target.
I spent $30 for curtains and curtain rod.

I plan to add more to the walls as I find things. They look a little bare still.

30 Minutes

In 30 minutes Rachael Ray puts together a whole meal. This is what I did in 30 minutes while watching Rachael Ray.

Art is gone this weekend, so I decided I am going to tackle the spare room. I feel like it's always a HUGE mess. I want it organized. I bought these shelves at Home Depot. They are going in the closest to finally get it organized.

Peanut Butter Pie....mmmmmmm

I made this last night. It is sooo delish. Art LOVED it.

1/2 cup peanut butter
1 cup powdered sugar
1/4 cup milk
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 (8-ounce) package cream cheese
1 (8-ounce) tub whipped topping
Ice cream topping (recommended: Magic Shell)
1 cookie pie crust (recommended: Oreo)

In large bowl combine all the ingredients except the toppings and crust. Blend with a hand mixer (* I used my kitchenaid it worked great!). Gently fold in whipped topping; pour into prepared crust and freeze for 2 hour. Once frozen, drizzle with ice cream topping and re-freeze for 20 minutes.
Thaw slightly before serving and cut into thin slices because this is a rich pie.

New Throw Pillows

I have been wanting new throw pillows for the couch, but haven't found any that I liked. I decided to make my own. I found this material at Joanne Fabrics and the pillow forms. It cost me $6 per pillow to make them myself. I am rather pleased with the way they turned out.
