13.1

 I'm so proud of Mr. Mayer. He started running in Aug. of last year. Seriously...who starts running in August in Oklahoma?! Oh, it's 210 outside....I think I'll go jog! I thought he had lost his mind. I am not a runner. I admire runners because I know it's hard. I have tried and it's just not a sport that is for me. He started running in August and ran his first 5K in September. Followed by a 15K in November. Holy balls that race was C-O-L-D!! Anyway, yesterday he did his first half marathon. He finished in 2hrs 24min. He has been doing the races with one of my best friends, Kristen. She did the half with him yesterday and finished in 2hrs 26min. I am so proud of both of them. Kristen's husband Brian isn't a runner either so he has become my finish line cheering partner. The kids LOVE it. Mr. Mayer's cousin has asked when he is doing the marathon. Brian and I have some opinions of where we would like the marathon to be. I mean, if we have to go we should be able to pick the location. We spent the weekend with Brian and Kristen. We had such a good time. On the way home a strange phenomenon happened....the Dudes slept~in a car!!! That rarely happens. They were some worn out kids.


 See! It really happened. For 2 hours they slept!! It was glorious. And, this morning they even slept in a little. Do you hear the choir of Angels singing?!

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...
