Shop and Play

While I was in the Memphis area, we went to Sheffield's antique mall.  I could have stayed there all day!  It is booth after booth filling up the entire space of an old Walmart building.  I found some topiary trees for our living room.  I can't wait to go back!

 Now that the girls are nearly grown....almost driving...we finally got them a play set.  They have just started wanting one this Spring.  We found a good deal on this one. 
 The delivery and set up fee was VERY expensive, but I think Steve would have come up with the money, even if it had been  $5000, NOT to have to put it together himself!!!!
We were all so excited about the men coming and getting it all set up!  Sarah Kate spent most of her time in this green chair watching them work.

She finally got her wish!

Sarah Kate was determined to wear this fancy dress.

The girls LOVE their new back yard!  So do I.  I think it will be so good for them to play outside more.

How fun for y'all!! What a blessing not to have to pack up & lug everyone to the park.

We just moved and now have a fenced in yard and my 3 year old son is LOVING the freedom to play outside. He has his trike, a scooter, sidewalk chalk, bubbles and a ball and it like a park to him. I love that he can play outside and be entertained for hours at home!

OK we live in Memphis and I am not really sure why I didn't know about this antique place you went to. I am off to find out where it exactly is. I love antique shopping so I will be heading there soon.
I LOVE the new playset!!!! Looks like the girls do too!!! My boys have one similar and we've gotten YEARS of use from it!!

Love the play set!! We have been looking for one but are now going to wait until fall. Where did you get yours? I'm assuming it was in NWA.

That looks like so much fun for them. We got one two years ago. You are right, it isn't cheap to have them set it up, but worth every penny. It comes board by board. There was no way!

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.
