Is it already Thursday? This week is just flying by.

I am trying to get everything done before vacation.

My son's crown fell out, so I have to take him to the dentist to get it put back in tomorrow.

Laundry, Laundry, Laundry.

The weather has been so beautiful. Little Kevin is just having so much fun blowing bubbles and chalk...and his very favorite is the water balloons:) I have a little color now, too.

Tonight's dinner was roasted chicken.

I am off to bed, I am sleepy.

See you in the morning.

I will post before vacation:)

Good morning. Hope everyone had a wonderful weekend. Our grill broke a few months back, so over the weekend we got a new grill. On Saturday we grilled steak and asparagus, and then on Sunday, I made Shish Kabob's, beef and chicken. The picture below is of the beef. On the chicken skewers I added pineapple.

I also made some baby new potatoes:)

This week, school is half days and then next week is spring break. We are going to Georgia for the week, so we are very excited about that. I am going to have a house sitter, so my home will be taken care of. I wish some of you lived near Atlanta, so we could visit:) Today I am going to do a bunch of spring cleaning, and when I get back from vacation, I will finish:) We will have our own TV on the plane, but I am going to bring my Little House books to read:) Tonight's dinner is going to be skinless, boneless chicken breasts with steamed veggies:) Happy Tuesday!

Here is a picture of the Macaroni Salad I made last night
The recipe is in the post below this one.
It was very good, I must say:)

Here is the Apple Bread I made..It smelled like Christmas in my home while it was baking. It was cold outside like it was Christmas too:)

Little Kevin and I have very sensitive skin, this is some laundry detergent I picked up at Walmart yesterday. Free and Clear:)

Some of you may know, I collect cows. I love cows. Here are two little cows I have that I wanted to share.

Eating watermelon..aren't they cute?

Happy Wednesday!
Tonight's Dinner:

Noodles with Garlic and butter
Steamed veggies

It is also cold outside today, the rains are supposed to come this afternoon. The last couple of weeks had been quite warm, I had a nice tan going, I was hoping when we went to Georgia, I would still be tan, but with this cold weather and rain, it doesn't look like I will be able to keep my tan...Oh well! :)
Happy Day

Cold and Wet Monday!

Good Morning!

The Hallmark Channel has brought back the Waltons:) YaY!

It rained really hard last night, and it is supposed to continue raining through today, it is COLD!!! BRRRRRRRRR:)

Since we can't play outside, it is the perfect day to get a lot of things done around the house, Cooking, Cleaning and Baking! I just love these kind of cozy days!

We had a very nice weekend.

Remember when I posted about my daughter having lice. Well, it is going around again. We are lice free, but my girlfriends household has it. I went over to her house on Saturday to help her get rid of those little buggers. She was a bit overwhelmed to say the least. I bought some shampoo with tea tree oil in it for my daughter to use. It is supposed to be a deterrent, so hopefully if there is any lice at the school, they will stay away from my daughter. I am continuously checking through everyone's head. I do not want to have to go through that again, it was a lot of work getting rid of those buggers! If any of you have ever had to deal with Lice, you know what I am talking about.

I am caught up on laundry.

I want to dust and vacuum today.

The baby gates that I had put up, had left marks on my wall, so I spackled the marks, and then over the weekend, my husband painted over the spackle. The walls look so nice now.

It is so dark here right now, it seems like night time.
Have a wonderful Monday

Happy St Patrick's Day!

I had to go to WalMart today and pick up a gift for a little girl, my daughter has a birthday party after school to go to.
I am all ready for St. Patricks day, I have my Corned Beef and Cabbage:)
It has really been lovely here, and I have gotten a tan by playing outside with the kids:) I protect my face though, I wear big bug eyed glasses...LOL. I also moisturize a lot!
Dinner tonight will be boneless pork chops? is that what they are called...LOL
Happy Tuesday!

Yes, I live on the coast in Southern California. San Clemente to be exact. Everything seems to be fine so far. Everyone is out and about. It is a beautiful sunny day. I live high up on a hill, and you can see the ocean from my neighborhood, but all looks calm. It is all over the news, so I am listening to it. My prayers go out to Japan and everywhere else affected by this. Scary stuff!!! Be safe everyone!

Sweet Dreams!
It was a great day today.
It was 76 degrees today so we spent a good part of it outside:)
I filled up so many water balloons.
Little Kevin was worn out, he fell asleep fast!
See you in the morning!

So Far.....

Shoping is done!
Now on to Housework:)

What are your plans for today?
Anyone joining in the cleaning fun?


Good Morning!
I hope you all checked out the blog I posted about yesterday:)
Today is a brand new day and with that brings new things. You never know what each day holds.
It was a chilly day yesterday, and it rained too. I love that kind of weather.
I made a Turkey dinner on Sunday so yesterday, I made Turkey noodle soup~~perfect for the cold, wet day.
Today I am thinking of making some kind of turkey casserole, and then freezing the rest.

Breakfast is served, I made cheese omelets. Now it is time for me to get dressed.
I will soon take Alexis to school, and then come back home and start my chores:)
Her school is literally like 1 to 2 minutes away. There is a huge park right next to the school that I take them too. I won't be taking them to the park today, because since it rained and is cold the park will be all wet. I do not want anyone to get sick again so soon after getting better.
Happy Morning to you all
Enjoy your coffee!

I just cut up a bunch of strawberries and grapes and apples for them to eat, with a side of sausage. Enjoy your morning!

Tuesday Dinner:

Good Afternoon!

Hamburgers in Mushroom Gravy
Egg Noodles
Steamed Broccoli
Dinner Rolls

I also took out a turkey I had in the freezer, I will defrost it this week, and make it for a nice dinner on Sunday. It was just taking up so much space in the freezer for a long time. It is time to cook the Turkey. So we will have a nice turkey dinner on Sunday, with lots of leftovers:)



Edamame, Do you like it?

Well, at this house I can't buy enough of it. My oldest, I think loves it the most, he can eat a bunch in one sitting. My husband is really indifferent to it ... It is the kids that devour it.

I am happy that it is a really healthy snack, and if that is what they want to eat, YaY!! I buy the big pack from Costco, and wish they came in an even bigger box. I do sometimes buy the little spongbob lunch packs, but they go fast, and it is cheaper to buy them in bulk at Costco.

So, what do you think of Edamame?
