Ray of Sun in the Rain

We are having a very rainy Spring Break.  Oh well......I am just happy to have some nights that we can stay up late and sleep in the next day!
I have been so excited about some of my very best friends from Little Rock coming to visit.  Kelly and I grew up together and have been very close friends since we were two.  They are always a lot of fun!  They always make little things fun and interesting.  I took them to some of my favorite junk stores.  They collect old post cards from places that have lived or visited.  They found some at the Rusty Chair.  Kelly bought at wreath at my favorite shop:  True Treasures.
My girls LOVED Lauren being here. Sarah Kate wanted to sleep in the bed with the two older girls last night.  That went well until 1:30 a.m. when SK fell out of the bed.  Then both girls got leg aches.  Poor Lauren did not get much sleep at all.  Neither did I.
Last night I made one of our favorite dishes- Frogmore Stew.  It is just shrimp, potatoes, sausage and corn boiled in Old Bay seasoning.
It was good to have guests!  Good friends bring a ray of sunshine on a rainy day!

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.
