Bowling Buddies


Our Saturday afternoon our plans fell through.  (Because I am near crazy and arrived with the whole family 24 hours hours early for an event.)  So,  Steve said,  "ya'll want to go bowling?"  So, we went and had a wonderful time.  Our scores were pitiful, but we had fun.  We had never bowled as a family.  I had taken the girls wth my friend, Tracy and another time with my parents last year.  I am not good at bowling, but I have always liked it!  I have a terrible problem when I bowl because I drop the ball really hard and loud and make the whole area shake.  It is just my style.  I have gotten in trouble at bowling alleys in the past.  One day I may be paying to replace the floor in a bowling alley.

I felt so funny as I was finishing my last bowl and looked up and saw Scott and Harper, then Kelly and Hollis.  I asked Steve if he had texted Scott that we were there.  He had not.....talk about random.

I think that is a hoot that you guys and the Stamps family both ended up at the bowling alley! We need to take our kiddos bowling- I bet they would have a ball.

My best friend and her husband randomly showed up to the same movie as my husband and I. It was completely awesome!!! I don't do well at bowling and I don't really like it so I'm glad you enjoyed yourself.

Complicated

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 good thing, …

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:

Just a Hodge Podge of Stuff

SK LOVES her long locks!  I recently talked her into getting her hair trimmed a little bit!
 My favorite spot of my house is our breakfast room.
 I'm trying to keep these succulants alive!  They lose a leaf each day!  I haven't figured them out yet!
 We visited Steve's parents during Spring Break and ate at a wonderful little joint called The Second Line in Memphis!  I got fried oysters and cheese grits!
