Inspired to Write

It has been a while since I have posted anything, and I have actually had some things to write. Baby Emily is taking a nap right now. Steve is due home any minute, but I thought I would use this time to write. Steve and I REALLY enjoyed our trip to Branson. We enjoyed our time together so much. We stayed at Big Cedar. It was nice and we had a FABULOUS brunch on Sunday morning there. Try their Sunday brunch when you are in Branson. You will not forget it! It is awesome. We shopped, went to the Titanic museum, the Imax and just rode around for the fun of it. I am so thankful for Steve. He is so much fun and makes me feel so loved. I cannot believe we have been married two years.
We bought a new car. YEP, another Honda. We are a Honda Accord family. They are just dependable cars that get great gas milage. I am really enjoying it.

It sounds like y'all had a wonderful time! I'm glad you enjoyed it. Vonda and I just love going to Branson. There is so much to do and see. It's out little 'home away from home'.

I'm so glad you're posting, I love to read your blog! How was the Titanic museum, I've been wondering about that. Steve is a good sport to go to Branson for his anniversary. If you're like me, a trip to Branson means a trip with shopping! Can't wait to see your new car.

Maybe I am wrong, but I don't remember life being so complicated when I was in middle school. Everything is so competitive now.  Maybe it was back then and I just didn't realize it. Sarah Kate started playing city league softball a couple of weeks ago.   We've been encouraged to get her private batting lessons. When I was in third grade I started playing softball and I just did it for fun!  No stress at all, as far as I can remember!  I just played.  I wasn't very good, but I liked it! Ha! Emily started band this year!  Before school started, I got a letter from the school district strongly encouraging "your band student to take instrument lessons."  WHAT?  I bought into it and got Emily private clarinet lessons (which she really enjoys)! But, what happened to learning as you go?  I never thought about taking private trumpet lessons when I started band. It seems like most parents are striving for their child to be THE BEST.  I guess that's a go

Something Good to Eat

Ever since Steve and I started dating, when we would go to Mississippi, his aunt would make the BEST ROAST IN THE WORLD!!!!!!!!!!! Steve's Dad's side of the family gets together at his Granny's house for lunch every Sunday after church. The food is always sooo good!!!!!!!!!!!! I have always taken a liking to his Aunt Judy's roast. It really is the best roast I have ever had. When we were there on Labor Day weekend, my sister in law asked Aunt Judy for the recipe. Aunt Judy began naming all the ingredients. She said Ranch Dressing mix, and I bugged my eyes out and nearly chocked. I HATE RANCH DRESSING. I don't even like to be in the room with it. I had to focus on the word MIX....not the mayo and butter milk and sour cream that you add to it. Just typing those words makes me shudder. The recipe sounded awful as she rattled off the ingredients, but I promise, you have got to make this if you like a good roast. Trust me on this. Here it is: Get a tender chuck

Life in Pictures!

Emily is enjoying her first year in band.  I am very impressed with her playing skill! Sarah Kate was recently awarded the empathy award at her school.  She is very deserving of this! Here we are before the Cotillion Holly Ball.
