I went to the library today to return some books, and they have shelves upon shelves of books for sale. I bought these two cook books for $2.00 :) Yay. I love anything Christmas! I know fall just started but for some reason, I am just super excited for all the Holidays coming up.
I took Alexis to the Ortho the other day for her tightening, and I think everyone in the waiting room was sick...used lots of Hand Sanitizer and tried not to breath...LOL ;)
I am not so worried about me getting sick as I am getting my little one sick, or everyone else in the household for that matter.
Can I just say, I just adore our neighbors...they are the nicest people I have ever met.
Alexis is doing very well in school, and Kevin is just so smart...I can not get over his reading skills.
My house is all decorated for Fall, except for my pumpkin. I bought it at Krogers and it has already started to rot :( I need to get a new one.
I have laundry going at the moment.
It is a nice day :) I love the cold mornings, I love the Fall, I love scarves, and warm clothes, I love warm beds and comfort dinners.
I love hot coffee, especially peppermint mocha. I love the Holidays, and Christmas music. I absolutely LOVE the rain!
I love my husband, my children and my pets.
I am thankful to God for everyday, and for giving me the coping skills when I feel defeated, for understanding my tears and my frustrations. I am God's girl :)
Alexis got to go to the One Direction concert, she went with her sister..oh, what memories they will now have :) It took her awhile to cut the concert bracelet off...LOL...Ah, to be 13. My first concert was when I was 7, I saw the Bee Gee's...remember them?
Happy Saturday! I have laundry going and I just finished up cleaning the kitchen:) Here are some pictures of food I have made along the way.
These are wraps I made for my daughter's lunch. I put cherry tomatoes in there, too. She gets a drink, I put in something crunchy like Pirate Booty or Goldfish. I also put in some fruit, I have been putting in watermelon...but I also do strawberries, grapes...etc..I can't put carrots in there anymore, because of her braces. I also put in a treat like a Hershey's Kiss:) The plain Hershey Kisses are safe.
Today is Tuesday, and it is the first official day of Fall :) I am making pasta in a crockpot today . I will also make a salad to go with it. I may have to stop real quick at the store for lettuce. With the Guinea Girl, Juicing, sandwiches and salads we go through A LOT of lettuce!
My husband and I had a date night in July (My Birthday) and he took me to LongHorn's Steakhouse. I ordered the BEST salad..it was a grilled watermelon served atop a kale and cheese salad, with a really good balsamic vinaigrette..
I have some pictures of the Fall decorations I have been slowly putting up.....Fred of course is out. He is always the first to come out, he has seniority, ya know...LOL. I will make a picture post next...stay tuned! XO
This beautiful rainbow made it's appearance outside my front door on September 11th :) My son came running to me, saying, "Mama, LOOK, LOOK!!!!" It was quite breathtaking, and I will forever think of God's enduring promise to us, whenever I see these beautiful rainbows :)
At 10:29 p.m. it is officially when Fall begins, YaY!!!
I love Fall....I love the leaves changing, the sun setting earlier, the cooler air, pumpkins, comfort food...everything!
We just had a Fall Break, no school or work for all of last week..it was wonderful!
I really enjoy writing in my blog, and I snap pictures all day to put here...but time has a way of evading me. I do find it easier to write on the kitchen computer, considering I am in the kitchen most of the time.
So tomorrow, I promise, I new post is going up, with pictures :)
Have a wonderful day and remember at 10:29, Fall begins!! XO XO
My name is Julieann, and I am a SAHM. I am married to the sweetest and kindest man--and he is very handsome too. I have four wonderful children. I enjoy being a wife and mother and taking care of my family--there is nothing more satisfying to me then what I am already doing. God is so very Good!
God bless my little kitchen I love its every nook And bless me as I do my work Wash pots and pans and cook. And may the meals that I prepare Be seasoned from above With Thy great blessing and Thy grace But most of all Thy love. As we partake our earthly food The table before us spread We'll not forget to thank Thee, Lord Who gives us daily bread. So bless my little kitchen, Lord And those who enter in May they find naught but joy and peace And happiness therein.
Dear Lord, it's such a hectic day, With little time to stop and pray, For life's been anything but calm, Since you called on me to be a mom. Running errands, matching socks, Building dreams with building blocks. Cooking, cleaning, and finding shoes, And other stuff that children lose. Fitting lids on bottled bugs, Wiping tears and giving hugs. A stack of last week's mail to read, So where's the quiet time I need? Yet when I steal a minute Lord, Just at the sink or ironing board, To ask the blessings of your grace, I see them in my small one's face, That you have blessed me all the while, As I stop to kiss that precious smile.
