Spring Break


Good afternoon! What a week we have had. We went and saw the Backyardigans on Saturday and boy were they great. Miller was so good. He just sat there and watched all of it. I couldn't believe how good he was. Afterwards we took him to lunch. We celebrated with Scott's family Saturday night turning 84 was a huge deal...we ate dinner out and she looked great.
Sunday we had church and lunch out at our favorite Mexican resteraunt with all our friends. It was really nice. Miller did well. Monday we worked in the yard landscaping all day. My parents came over for dinner we grilled and it was really a nice evening. We had steaks and green bean bundles and Paula Deen's Twice Baked Potato Casserole....for dessert Madison made a Turtle Cake...and yes it was so yummy.
Tuesday we ran errands with Scott and Madison got her shot. She turned as white as a ghost nearly fainted and vomited twice before we could get out of the office. Yes...I'm telling the truth. It was horrible. But she did it. We took the kids to Burger King afterwards and then came home to cat nap.
Wednesday mom had Miller all day and Madison and I had lunch and went to the salon. We had manicures, pedicures, hair cut, colored and even had sparkles put in it....she even got her eye brows waxed for the first time....and they look great. She had a great time...when we left she thanked me for the most perfect day...I just laughed. I made Sandra's Cheesy Tortellini in my crock pot and let me tell you how great it was...wow.
Today we are in for alot of really bad storms...although so far all we have had are high winds...who knows what we will end up with. Today is our down day though. I have made a batch of peanut butter cookies....by the way does anyone have a really good recipe for these cookies because I cant find a great one yet...so please share it with me. Dinner tonight is Baked Feta Chicken with corn on the cob and sweet peas and carrots.
Tomorrow Miller is going to Scott's parents house and I'm taking Madison to lunch and a movie. Then to the mall to shop some. I need a new pair of white pants...and I love the dress pants at the Limited. Madison wants to look at bathing suits. We'll see.
I'll try and post over the weekend to let you know how we are doing...hope you all are well.

I don't know where you're finding all this energy Jen!

I've used the same peanut butter cookie recipe forever and mine are really good. If you have a Betty Crocker cookbook, it's the recipe in that book that I use.

You make the best meals. They all sound so delicious!!

We're taking a break today and I'm visiting, between naps and getting supper together. Not as good as yours..just cabbage, potatoes, ham and speckled butter beans! I should make some cornbread! Just thought of that!

You've certainly had a wonderful, busy week, Jen!

Wow, what an incredibly busy few days, but it all sounds like fun! You know, I just had dinner an hour or so ago, but reading about all of your food and meals is making me hungry! :)

Hope you have a great weekend!!!

You have been busy, but it sounds like you've had lots of fun! Well, except for the shots, what an ordeal! Several nurses used to have to hold Grace down while she screamed...so awful. :0(
Have a fun shopping today tomorrow, my girls want new bathing suits too!
Hugs,
Kelli

You're a great mother, Jen. I just don't have the energy to do all of that.

Poor Madison. I am glad that is over for her. I was about that bad.

Sounds like spring break went even better than you had planned. Happy weekend!

I might have to do steaks tonight after reading this! Sounds like y'all have had a good week. Hope the storms aren't too bad for you...we're hoping to dodge some of it this time, it was bad in places last weekend.

Hope the storms didn't hit too hard up your way! Have a good weekend.

Wow! That chicken sounds so good!

Do you have the baked feta chicken recipe somewhere? Sounds awesome! I have my MIL's PB cookie recipe and they are SO fattening but SO incredible. Remind me to email it to you - I'm not home right now.

I felt so sorry for Madison! I did the same thing when I was younger and had to have blood drawn. I was so embarrassed! I was with a school group my senior year in high school. I wanted the floor to open up and me fall in! She deserved to be pampered after all that trauma!

I just posted my Peanut Butter Cookie recipe on my blog. I've used this recipe for years and my family loves them.
