Go Red! Happy Valentine's Day!

 Besides playing with stuffed animals, the girls LOVE to play dress up.  It causes huge messes, but they love it!
 This week, my friend, Jenn invited me to the Go Red luncheon here in NWA! The event raised money for the American Heart Association. I had a wonderful time and great food!  Here is Amanda, Bethany and Jessica.
 Me, Lenette and Ginger.
 I had to put this one of Jessica and her selfie!

 Jenn and Dina
 Our special guest speaker was the one and only Rachel Ray!  This was such a fun day!

 SK at her school Valentine's party.  She made a card for Frisco.

 Emily's teacher gave prizes to the kids who could stack the most conversation hearts in 10 seconds.  It was a lot of fun!  The winner stacked 9 hearts.  Emily stacked 7!
When Kelly and I had our super fun day a couple of weeks ago, I bought these vintage valentines.  I adore them.  I DO NOT like the valentines kids pass out today.  Back in the old days the cards had such character.
Steve gave the girls sun catchers for V-day.  SK had a lot of fun painting hers this afternoon.

Love the vintage Valentine's! My husband's aunt was a school teacher and I have her collection and they are vintage and then some. Gorgeous.
Love vintage cards! Especially when they are used and you get to read a little snippet! Such an adventure!

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.
