(For those of you who follow Flylady, would she be horrified or what?!)
In my defense, these are all my husbands work shirts... I just hate for him to go out of the house not looking his best!

As a result of my husband leaving for work at 10:00 p.m., the kids stay up late and end up sleeping late the next morning. We have to be extra quiet during the school day so that Daddy can sleep. He is a little more grouchy ..... but I believe that I would be also!

Instead of going out, my sister-in-law kept our kids on Friday night and my husband and I grilled steaks and stayed home and watched a movie. It was very relaxing and I enjoyed the time alone with him. Several times I thought I heard the kids in the back of the house! It was so strange without them! It is very rare that they are away from us so it was kind of shocking for us all.
Thanks Tonka for taking care of my babies!!! Your the best!

Several weeks ago I found myself lying in bed thinking over things that I might blog about. Several things came to mind and I thought that I would give one a try today.
As you see from the cute little button, I am going to call this challenge....... TALK ON TUESDAY. I have found that if I write challenges down I am more likely to follow through. I invite you to take the challenge with me. Each Tuesday I will post a challenge to myself. You are welcome to post the button in you blog, link back to me and join in on the fun. I do not plan on getting complicated with this..... I just plan to see where it takes us!!
The first challenge I have for myself is one that will take a lot of effort on my part. After my visit with my Aunt on Monday, it dawned on me that I have not kept in touch with her like I should have. Not only with my Aunt but with a lot of different people that were important to me and still are.
So I ask myself-- why do I neglect the blessing that God has given me in the gift of friendship? He has given me friends to bring joy into my heart. I know... I am a sound like a terrible friend.
Can you think of someone you have neglected to keep in touch with? I encourage you to phone, email or even go see that person. Remember to have a friend, you need to be a friend. It is also that way with relatives! They are your first friends! I know that I get so caught up in my daily life that I do not slow down and think about the blessing of friendship. Take the time to be a friend!!!! I plan on making my phone call! How about you?
Two are better than one, because they have a good reward for their labor. For if they fall, one will lift up his companion. But woe to him who is alone when he falls for he has no one to help him up. Ecclesiastes 4:9-10

Update: My Aunt's visit has been changed until Monday. Thank you for all your prayers! We were able to get everything cleaned and it has surprisingly stayed that way!!!! It is amazing how good it feels to have a clean house!
Have a great Sunday!!!

The blog is "Like a warm cup of coffee". It was very interesting to learn that there is a club out there for early risers like me! It is called the 5:16 girls. I am not alone!!!! The tips were great food for thought and did reinforce some habits that I have and gave me ideas for others.
Hope you find it interesting..... Happy Reading!

I have been blessed when it comes to Mother-in-laws! I remember when I first met her. She was and still is a sincere and love able person. She is Wonder Woman actually. She raised 6 kids by herself!!!!!! My hubby is a lot like her and for that I am thankful. My kids love her to death and call her house the "fun house" . I do believe that my son would move in with her in a heart beat!
So, for all my blogger friends... I will be gone most of the day... I hope your Thursday is a blessed and happy day!

1 15oz can plain pumpkin
1 12oz can evaporated milk
3 eggs-slightly beaten
1 3/4 cup sugar
4 teas. pumpkin pie spice
1/2 teas. salt
1 Duncan Hines Butter cake mix
1 cup butter melted
1/2 chopped pecans
In a large bowl mix pumpkin, evaporated milk, eggs, sugar, pumpkin pie spice, and salt. Pour into a greased 9x13 pan. Sprinkle DRY cake mix over pumpkin mixture. Top with pecans and drizzle with melted butter. Bake at 350* for 50 minutes. Let brownies cool completely, cut into squares and serve with cool whip.
These were absolutely delicious!!!!! I do not remember where I got the recipe..... I found it in my recipe box....hand written. I can tell I wrote it fast because it is very sloppy!!!! I am assuming I got it off of a cooking show. Who knows... but it is yummy!
