Thought I Would Show You

Have you had one of these candy bars?????? You need too! This is one of the best things I have ever tasted. They just need to make them bigger.
We made a Walmart run this morning. I usually go to WM when the girls are in school. When I have Emily with me, we come home with lots of extra items that I normally do not buy. She got some cherry Pop Tarts this morning.

Sarah Kate was being silly for the camera when I put her down for her nap.
Sarah Kate's room is slowly coming together. I made this bow holder for her a couple of months ago.
I picked this table up at an antique shop in South Arkansas. It cost me $10!!!!!!!!!! I was thrilled to death! I painted it this lime green. I LOVE doing things like this! I took the other lamp back, because I thought it was just too busy looking.
Here is her new rug.
I painted these pictures last week.
This is her curtain fabric and trim.
The giraffe print will go on her chair.

I'm in LOVE with everything in that room, especially the lime green giraffe print!!!!!!! :) LOVE, LOVE, LOVE!!!!!!

I've also been wondering about that Truffle Crisp, so I'm soooo thrilled that someone blogged about it! I know, I just said I was glad someone blogged about a candy bar. It's the little things, right?!?! ;)

Have a WONDERFUL weekend!! Oh, and by the way, we all still miss you on Twitter!!!! So, when you're ready to come back (you know, after your one and only tweet) we'll all JUMP for JOY!!!!!!!!!!!

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.
