Thanksgiving Thursday

I haven't done one since January!!

Thanksgiving Thursday is a time to be thankful for what you have in your life...even when you are having a really bad week, take a minute and reflect on the good. 


Today I am thankful for...
Thursday Laundry. I have 3 kids and a husband. There is a lot of laundry. I typically do it 2x a week. I like my "Thursday laundry" because I usually only have a few loads to wash and I can get it done pretty quickly. Dorky, but it makes me happy.
My voice. My family life has been in turmoil recently. I have had to discuss going to a nursing home with my parents. It didn't go well. Things were said on both parts. I am not someone who typically speaks her mind or stands up for herself because I don't want to hurt anyone's feelings. I am thankful that in this situation I was able to speak my mind and say the difficult things that needed to be said. This resulted in my mother not speaking to me anymore, which hurts, but I am thankful I was able to face the situation and say what needed to be said.
Sunshine. I am lovin' these warm sunny days. I am not a fan of winter. At. All. I prefer warm weather and lots of sunshine. 
Those Boys. They are 6 months now. Things are getting a little easier. They are trying to crawl. I'm really going to be in big trouble then.


What are you thankful for?

What She Wore Wednesday

It's Wednesday again- already! It's a rainy kind of day. Diva was in a pretty good mood this morning. That always helps. As usual she dressed herself. Nothing wild, she picked out a dress. She is a ham though when it comes to having her picture taken.

Dress: Thrift Store find (she wanted the ties tied in the front instead of the back)
Not pictured is her footwear. She chose white dress shoes from Target.

Nana Karen's Red Sauce and Meatballs~ Oh My!

When I am in the mood for comfort food my mind immediately goes to Spaghetti and Meatballs. It has been my favorite for as long as I can remember. My version of the dish consists of jarred sauce and ground beef or frozen meatballs because I didn't know how to make meatballs.
Enter Nana Karen. When I was pregnant with Shrek and Donkey there wasn't much I could do the further along I got. Nana Karen would come over about once a week and make dinner and help me with whatever. She was a God send. It was an enormous help. One of the things she would make was Spaghetti and Meatballs. Wow! She made homemade sauce and from scratch meatballs. Every time I eat this dish I am in heaven.
Nana Karen is an old school cook. She doesn't measure anything and makes everything from memory. A few weeks ago she found a pasta maker that her and I have been playing with and making homemade pasta. If you have never had homemade pasta it is divine! She came over today to make some pasta. While she…

I Just Taught Myself How To Add Pictures To My Blog...

It's about time I figured it out.
We went and stayed with family over New Year's. Diva rode a horse and a big green tractor. 

                  She thought she was a VERY big deal getting to ride Goldie on New Year's Day



Mr. Hubs dabbles in photography. He never gives himself enough credit. He had to watch Shrek and Donkey for a few hours this weekend. This is how he spent his time...
