Run, don’t walk, to Trader Joe’s and buy yourself these marshmallows. Then hide them in a high, unused cabinet that nobody in your house will venture into. … What are you still doing here?!?! RUN!
The PCP has made 25 / 25 on all of his spelling tests this school year!!! And he brought home a 98/100 on his first math facts test!! Couldn’t be prouder.
Does anybody else think late summer t.v. is the pits? Outside of Under the Dome, I’ve got nothin’. So, I’ve been reading at night… churning through books like a mad woman. This is the one that has had me up this week. I do love me some Kay Scarpetta.
I visited the Chicken & Waffles “roach coach” last week. And I can’t say that I recommend it. I mean, it wasn’t awful. And it wasn’t delish. I just can’t help but think that my arteries will never, ever be the same.
Speaking of roaches, I witnessed a gigantic cockroach give birth, which is apparently extremely rare (this is the lottery I win.) It’s worth mentioning that this was at the baseball field NOT at my house. Not that it’s much better seeing as I practically live there. Is your skin crawling? Mine too.
I can’t tell you how much I’m missing those pool days where the big kids were all back and school and the baby and I had the place to ourselves. We’d share a lunch and lounge in a chair and just do nothing but enjoy ourselves. Have I mentioned just how much I’m going to miss this kid when he starts for real school next year? I treasure this time.
Tricia at HKL Designs treated me to this darling monogrammed pot and mum. So thoughtful!!
I made Life in Grace’s Tortellini Soup and it’s SOOO delish! If you don’t already follow Edie, it’s a beautiful lady, beautiful house and pretty much just beautiful all around.
I also made this Lasagna Soup. (And by “I” I mean “Mother” but I did procure all of the ingredients.) It serves a crew and tastes just like lasagna. So yummy!!
The Elf on the Shelf Birthday is coming in October and I’m too excited about it!! Our elf is here for both of the littles’ birthdays and I can’t wait to dress him up on their special days.
We did our Sunday Supper at Joe’s Crab Shack while Mother and Daddy-O were in town last weekend. The boys adored the shark sipper complete with a vial of “shark blood” to pour on top of their drinks. And I got to sip a strawberry lemonade and visit with CeeCee while they ran off energy on the playground. A pretty nice night all around!
We had so much fun at the GT vs UNC game yesterday. It was raining cats and dogs and I didn’t see a wink of the actual game but I did get to catch up with a few people, including one of my sorority little sisters, that I haven’t seen in ages. Oh… and I made a new friend too… HI HEATHER :-)
Last but not least, today is the last day to enter my House Proud book giveaway!!
