I so wish I had Sarah Kate's hair! She was born with beautiful hair and I KNOW it came from her Daddy. I have terrible hair that I have nicknamed "fizzledust." Emily has started letting me blow dry her hair. It has always been so thin that I just towel dry it. This morning Emily wanted me to dry her hair, although it was dry. I had given her a bath last night. Soooooo.... she said, "Oh Mama, my hair so cold, it just so cold." I dried her dry hair.

Oh laurie, I think your hair always looks good. I also think you have one of the prettiest smiles evah! Your girls are adorable.

No luck yet with my shades for my french doors. Hubby isn't wanting to drill into the steel. Ugh, Still deciding what we're gonna do. The Lowes associates are probably sick of seeing me. Thanks again for your help and suggestions.

Hi Laurie - I am a SAHM with a Hair Clip business and I was wondering if you would be interested in reviewing some of my clips on your blog and doing a give-away.

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.
