Miller Household Update..

...No, We are not pregnant. I just realized with that Post title my mom would automatically assume that we are announcing we are pregnant..We are not.

Now that we have that established I'm gonna give you a little update on whats been going on in our household.

1) We leave for Switzerland in 17 days! CAN NOT WAIT!!!

2) Brian and I are going to be helping with Awana at church this year. That should be interesting ;-)

3) I've started serving with a friend of mine at a local group home. For now we are bringing dinner 2x a month and hope to start mentoring a child soon. It is a super neat place!

4) We I am in full on Christmas mode. Like, I want to put my tree up today...but I wont, I'll at least wait for Nov 1st...Sorry Halloween and Thanksgiving, you may get overlooked this year.

5) We tried a new super easy recipe for Beef Stroganoff last night. It was pretty great for as easy as it is. I'll share the recipe below.

Beef Stroganoff Recipe

  • 1 (8 ounce) package egg noodles
  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 1 (10.75 ounce) can fat free condensed cream of mushroom soup
  • 1 tablespoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • salt and pepper to taste


  1. Prepare the egg noodles according to package directions and set aside.
  2. In a separate large skillet over medium heat, saute the ground beef over medium heat for 5 to 10 minutes, or until browned. Drain the fat and add the soup and garlic powder. Simmer for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  3. Remove from heat and combine the meat mixture with the egg noodles. Add the sour cream, stirring well, and season with salt and pepper to taste.

6) I have just discovered Polyvore( I know, where have I been??). Its been a cool tool for me to find pieces like the ones I have in my closet and create new outfits out of them. Heres an  example of pieces similar to ones I recently purchased:

Mint and Gold

7) I am really enjoying my "Home Management Binder"! It makes me feel like I have it together.

8) Brian has his first Church softball game on Friday. Im excited! I miss stuff like this!

I think thats everything for right now..Whats going on in your life?

P.S. I came across this on a blog I enjoy reading and LOVE it!


  1. I would hope that I wont find out I am finally going to get my first grandchild through a blog!

  2. I love that you had to specify the "no we are not pregnant"(I do that a lot for post titles that may be misconstrued haha) YAY for Switzerland! & I'm excited ya'll will be at AWANAS with us... Mike & I are leading a T&T group!:)

  3. LOL, I know sometimes we just have to clarify!

    I cant wait for Awana! Brian isn't usually the first person to volunteer to help with anything kid related so Im excited to serve in this area with him!
