Weekend Fun

I had the great opportunity to meet two of my best college friends while I was in Memphis. This is me and Sara. She is from Memphis, but now is a missionary in Turkey. We were roommates for a year in college. Sara is sooo MUCH FUN! She is just so funny and a blast to spend time with. I have laughed and laughed at the things she said and did this weekend. She is a WONDERFUL mother. She has taught me so much about handling children (and life). I think I need to send my girls to live with her for a week and let her train them.
Me ,Sara and Kim. We had to make a trip to Dairy Queen. Kim is also a whole lot of fun and laughs herself. I always tell her that she needs to be a comedian. You can't help but laugh when you are with Kim. She is also very kind.

I am sooooooo thankful that the Lord brought these girls in my life. They love the Lord and are so real through and through.

I smiled all day Saturday after being with them. We stayed in a hotel together on Friday night. We had good food and shopping!

Another cute baby of the weekend. This is me and SK with Zack.

We really did have a great weekend. Steve has the nicest family in the world! I am sooooo blessed.

Didn't know you roomed with Sara. I went to high school with her. Hoping to catch up with her too for a visit while she's home this summer. Glad you got to spend some time with her :)

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.
