Happy Monday!

Hope everyone is all recharged from the weekend. We had a lovely weekend. Today is Monday so my to do list in my sidebar is going to start over, and I have to figure out a new menu---and this is going to be fun with all my new kitchen gadgets. Thank you all for all my birthday wishes, they were very special to me coming from all my blogging friends that I have *Spoke* with for a while now. Before I started writing this blog--I use to write on the AOL journal--and before that I use to write on paper--this is far more the most fun writing on this blog. I have met so many inspiring wonderful women--I have learned so much more about the Bible, I have learned so many great homekeeping tips and so many other fun and wonderful things! The first blog I ever encountered was Tammy's Blog--Tammy's Times, and then soon after I found Kelli's Blog and then I was so thrilled I found Mrs. U's Blog, we started at the same time so our blogs grew together as well as our friendship--then it just branched out and I have so many blogs that I just adore--Thank you all for writing and sharing your life with me---it is a very special part of my day coming here and being able to read your blog and share a little bit about myself too. I started this blog while I was still in Georgia----since then, we have moved back to San Clemente, California, I had another baby and now I am pregnant again....WoW!! I have friends here, around me--I have had one friend for about 20 years and we are just so different now--totally different lives--she is single with no children and I am totally the opposite--I have another very close friend, but she is a lot different too, she is in a lot of my pictures that I share--she is always there for me, and I love her dearly...:). My sister, she likes to argue a lot..LOL--not with just me, but with EVERYONE--so, I have to take her in small doses--my other sister lives in Chicago with her family--she is such a happy little thing too--I talk with her on the phone. Both my sister's are older then me. I have met a lot of wonderful Mom's through my kid's school--they are very diverse in everything--some agree with my views, some don't. My point is that I just love that I have met so many women HERE, that share my views--oh, how I wish you all were my neighbors:)))

Today, Little Kevin has a *Well Baby* Checkup--when I get back I will share his stats with all of you:) Also, I am going to do my hair one more time with the cetaphil--I did Alexis's hair and I just want to make sure I got all my bases covered--Oh, I sure don't want to go through all this washing again...LOL.

I had a few questions from you about the fryer--I used it and it worked GREAT--we made Hot wings, chicken strips, french fries and breaded pork strips--everything came out really good---I have note tried Onion rings yet--as soon as I do, I will post my review on those. I did not have any problem with sticking yet. It used a lot of oil and I think oil is more expensive then Gas right now--I used almost a whole container of a 64 ounce container of oil--I had about 1/4 left.

Happy Monday!

Happy Monday Julieann. I want to wish you a Happy Belated Birthday. I wasn't on for a few days so I am sorry I missed telling you before. You got some wonderful presents. I love the cutting board. It is one of the items on my wish list :) How adorable your children look when they are sleeping. I have a deep fryer too and I love it. I am not a big fan of makes an awful mess...but dh got me the fryer so I fry things in there for him and it works out great. Have a blessed day.

Happy late birthday Julieann. I'm sorry I missed it. I have been a slow blogger this summer. You got some wonderful gifts. I have never used a fryer. I should think about getting one. Have a blessed week. Hugs, Kathi

Julieann, how do you post your links the way you do in your post? Whenever I post them the whole URL shows in the post. Can you share the secret, pretty please?

Happy Monday to you too!!!

Sounds like you had a wonderful weekend with your family. Glad you could enjoy the beach.

I really like all your birthday gifts - lots of kitchen appliances.

I also love your flower bouquet.
We had Lily's in our wedding.
It almost looks like the exact one in my wedding bouquet.

Thanks for asking how I am doing.
I am doing well.
We are getting ready to go on vacation so I have been very busy with that.
Derek started his baseball tournament games tonight. They won.
They will tomorrow night and then again on Thursday night.
I am going to try and do a post real soon.

Take Care.

Hugs, Lori
