Well, my hopes of being a better blogger this week didn't happen, but I am not giving up!! I bet that once I drop these boys at college and the crickets are chirping in this house I will have time to blog...it may even save my sanity....I'm hopeful!
We've had another busy week. It's funny how I started the summer thinking it was going to be calm and somewhat boring seeing as we spent our vacation $$ on a new A/C.......ha! Jokes on me!
I've also been suffering from insomnia for the last week. That puts a whole new spin on your day for sure. I have never been very good dealing with lack of sleep. Plus it's frustrating because I thought I was through "all that". Seriously, menopause is a cruel trick.
But I did have a great week, here it is:
These are my family's current favorite potato recipe. You can find it here. They are pretty awesome, especially if you add some truffle salt (thank you April!) to them!! oh my!
This little car has been with us since Alyssa turned 16. We bought it from a neighbor and it has gone through all 3 of my kids. Sadly, we sold it today. I am really going to miss seeing this car drive up blaring rock, christian rock, or classical (guess which kid!) music each day!!!
We had our monthly ladies program at church tonight. The topic was hospitality. But it wasn't really about entertaining...it was about having a character of being hospitable to those God has placed around you....which means engaging.
several ladies decorated and hosted tables and I showed some easy, inexpensive ways to reach out to those around you. If you want to see many of them, go to my Pinterest board labeled Apples of Gold.
My MIL came in last night for a weeks visit.
Today we all made hair apt.s at the same time!
While my color sat on my hair, my friend, Danielle, cut everyone else's.
Jared is ALWAYS cold....and he is going NORTH for college....go figure.
We celebrated my MIL's birthday today (it's tomorrow). We all went to see the new Bourne movie and then came home for dinner and dessert. I bought everyone's favorite cupcakes at a local bakery...so yummy!
Happy Birthday, Ma!!!
Steve spent the evening helping his mom figure out her finances and start the process of setting up a budget for her.
