Frozen and Fragrance

 We have been cooped up with lots of snow and icey roads the past few days.  The girls were able to have school the past couple of days.  HOORAY!!!  Yesterday we went to the Frozen sing along with church friends.  I feel like I am frozen because it is so cold here.  Thank goodness for a warm robe, coffee, hot tea and Alpine apple cider.  But, it was fun to get out and go to the movie with sweet friends!

 I LOVED hearing about the perfume scents you love!  I forgot to mention that I love Clinique Happy.  I also love PINK from Bath and Body Works.
I ran to Sephora after I did the blog post and smelled many of the perfumes you mentioned.  I LOVE Philosphy's Love Sweet Love.  In fact, I am wearing a sample of it today.  Steve told me that I smelled good.  I told him that he was talking my love language.  He must really love that scent because he doesn't tell me I smell good very often.

 I have found a local store that sells Bond No. 9  I hope to get to that store this week to smell their perfumes.  I hear great things about Bond No. 9.

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.
