Boy, did they ever like it then!!! I love iced coffee's and have already put next Monday on my calendar!!! Yummie!!

Oh me!

Every had one of those days when you wonder..... why did I do that? Honest mistakes happen, but I am one to beat myself up about silly mistakes over and over. I need to remember that mistakes do happen and I need to forgive my self just like God forgives me! Think about it no more!!!
Our summer days have been long and lazy. We have enjoyed staying up late and sleeping in. What a hard habit that will be to break when school starts! We have not done much other that hang out together and swim at my mother-in-laws pool. Money is sooooo tight that we have had to pretty much stay here at the house. I read about all of you taking these wonderful trips, family members going on trips .... I am so jealous! I have really had to ask the Lord to help me not be angry. It is hard when your kids ask... "why can't we go anywhere fun". Knife in the heart! But, I guess that is a sacrifice when you are a single income family. Enough of the pity party!!!
I thought that I would blog a lot more this summer but I have actually slowed down...almost to a stretching halt!
I hope you are having a wonderful summer. We have 3 weeks left.... guess we will go swimming!!! Have a great day!!!!

MckLinky Blog Hop

This weeks blog hop is your favorite recipe. I am in a hurry so I decided to post one from memory. My hubby and I have a pepper plant on our deck that has been producing massive amounts of Jalapeno peppers. We love Jalapenos and have found several recipes that we like. This one may not be the most healthy but it sure us easy and good!

Stuffed Jalapenos with bacon

desired amounts of Jalapenos
Cream cheese
bacon- cut into 1/4 pieces

Slice the Jalapenos in half and de-seed. Use a knife to spread the cream cheese in the jalapeno half and wrap with bacon. Secure with a toothpick and place on grill until bacon is done.

Friday fun!

Today is going to be a "girl day"! I have not had a "girl day" in forever. I will be helping my mother-in-law and 2 of my sis-in-laws arrange flowers for a friends wedding. I have not worked with flowers in a looong time. My mother-in-law use to own a florist and I helped her out one summer while I was in college. It was such a fun job! This is definitely going to bring back memories! So, today is going to be a fun, giggly, happy day! Nothing like a wedding and a day with some of her favorite people to make a girl smile!!! :)
I just got back from paying my wonderful car tag...... and it happens to be my birthday!!! Happy birthday to me.... I did have some extra cash in the bank account but not anymore! oh well,,,, at least I can now avoid getting a ticket from "the man" as my kids say!!
Hope my blog friends have a wonderful weekend!!! xoxox

I'm back!!

Last week I was vacant from the blog world... several reasons.... here we go!!!!

My hubby was off last week for a 4th of July break. Every year his company shuts down for a week around the 4th. It is wonderful to have him home but hard to let him go back! We had planned on going to visit my parents in the Smoky Mountains but I came down with a HORRIBLE cold. Sore throat, congestion, aches, and pains.... you know, fun stuff. So I called my parents and they said to stay home and rest. Ha! Rest, what is that.... I should have gone on to the mountains... there I would not have had to cook, or do laundry!!!!
By Tues. I felt better so we began a fun week together. We took the kids fishing at the near by lake and they loved it. They fished and swam at the same time. The weather was beautiful so we decided to take a picnic.

The rest of the week was very relaxing. We did a few things around the house that desprately needed to be done.

We spent the 4th at my mother-in-laws by the pool! It was wonderful!!! My nephew Kaleb had so much fun that he fell asleep on his float in the pool!

See those orange goggles Kaleb has on? They are majic goggles! Kaleb would not go under water so my sister-in-law got him the goggles thinking they might help him keep the water out of his he has turned in to a little fish. He constantly goes under water. He has started picking up dive sticks off the bottom..... they are majic goggles I tell you!!!

Hopefully I will not be as absent as last week from now on! I miss keeping up with my bloggie friends!!!!
