Happy Tuesday!!! I can't remember all that I have wrote about---since it has been a few days---ahhhh, the joys of being a wife and mother----I love it and would not have it any other way!!!
Kevin has been so wonderful---he has been grilling a lot--I will make the salad and veggies, and he grills the main dish---easy cleanup. Lat night, I made his favorite though--Fried Chicken (pictured below)

I hope everyone had a lovely Mother's Day--I sure did:)

Right now Baby Kevin is napping and Alexis is home too, she is having some BM problems, I just couldn't send her to school with her having to go potty all day, so hopefully she will be better tomorrow.

We stocked up this weekend, Fruits and Veggies from the Farmer's Market, then I got more hand soap and hand sanitizer and odds and ends from the the .99 cent store---and then off to the regular grocery store for Meat, cheese and other fun stuff:) Busy, busy, busy!

Mrs. U, Bless her heart, asked me a question, that I would like to answer for her:
I am curious... what time do you get up? Do you eat super healthy (you must with all your energy!!!!)?

I wake up between 5:30 and 6:30---I want to change that to 5 though, so I have some more time in the morning to get some things done before the kids get up and so I don't have to rush, (know what I mean). Also, my eating, is I think healthy---my motto is and always has been *Moderation* I truly believe you can eat everything, as long as it is in moderation. There are some things though, that I just do not eat--like bacon--but I will eat Turkey Bacon---I don't eat red meats, even though, I cook a lot of it for my family--I am more of a fish and veggie kind of girl. I also enjoy savory foods and not so much sweet--I could give up sweets forever, but not my cheese and mayo. I also eat when I am hungry and I eat small amounts. I don't ever eat until I am so full I feel sick--have any of you ever done that? I don't like that feeling at all(Like at Thanksgiving:)--yuck..(LOL)

Oh, I also want to say, that I am in bed at a good time, last night, after everyone was in bed or settled in (my son studying) I finished cleaning the kitchen--went upstairs, nursed the baby at 9:00--and he slept until 11;30--giving me good stretch to sleep--then he woke up for another feeding and changing and I went to sleep again---he nurses about every two hours, so I get good sleep--and to be honest, I am so excited for my day to start--I don't mind waking up early and starting my day--
Thank you for the question Mrs. U---that was fun:)

My Father and Step Mom, and Grandmother were over Sunday to visit---->

I love my Grandma--->

My Fried Chicken that I made for my sweet Husband last night--->

Tonight, we will be having pork chops---the salad is already made.

I have a load of whites that need to be taken out of the dryer, and my bedding is in the wash--if I get those two loads done, I will be in good shape.

Well, that is pretty much all I have time for right now---My duties are calling;)

You all have a wonderful day--I will be back to read all your blogs too--I may not be able to comment as much as I want too, but I am reading at times when I am holding my sweet baby--so I am around, I promise!!! xoxoxox (((Gentle Hugs)))

Hi Julieann, I loved the pictures you shared, especially your sweet Grandma holding the baby!! :-)

Hope Alexis gets better soon, there are few things in life worse than seeing your little ones not feeling well...

Thanks for sharing your healthy living tips, too. I need to do better about following all of those. I am just not bouncing back from this birth like I did all the others, and I think a big part is bad eating habits.

Hope you have a great day!! :-)

Hi Julieann! Such sweet pictures of your little

Great pictures! He is such a little cutie! I too loved the one of her grandmother holding him - precious!

Mrs. U said...

I LOVE your family pictures!!! It's wonderful to have family visit, isn't it? Mr. U's parents are, hopefully, coming this weekend!! WOOHOO!!!

Aaahhh... you get up early because you go to bed early... seems like there is a Proverb in the Word to go along with that!! :) Smart lady!!! I need to practice this for sure!!!

And I should have guessed that you eat in moderation!! You always share such excellent recipes, but you manage to stay so slim!!! I LOVE LOVE LOVE sweets and if I could learn to NOT love them I am positive I would drop pounds QUICKLY!! :)

Are y'all grilling pork chops? Baking? Would you mind sharing your recipe? Mr. U likes pork chops but the only way I've ever made them is BBQ pork chops. I need more recipes to choose from!!

Mrs. U

PS- Thank you for answering my questions!! :)
