Better than my Robe

 For those that know me well, they know that I LOVE my robe.  I got a pink one right after we got married and Steve hated it!  In order to save my marriage, I stopped wearing the pink robe.  I think I will always hang on to it, though.  Two years ago, I got the ultimate soft robe at Pottery Barn outlet.  I love it so much.  I wear it year round.

A couple of weeks ago I saw this brown throw in a store.  I didn't get it, but I thought about it all the time, and decided to go back a week later and get it.  They had ONE left.  The sales lady told me that it was fox fur.  I said, "Fox fur?"  I read the display tag and it said,  "FAUX FUR THROWS."  HA!!!!  I was laughing to myself.  I am so proud of this throw.  It is SOOOOOO soft.  I call it my fox fur.  Sarah Kate likes it too and Kristen the cat.
I think it is better then the robe!

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.
