cold crock pot

I was a little scared this afternoon, when I checked on the crock pot meal I had assembled.  The crock pot was cold.  Chicken wrapped with bacon still half frozen.  Good thing I checked on it, I rarely do.  There was plenty of time to transfer this yumminess to a couple of baking dishes and have it done in time for supper.  I tried the crock pot again, and it warmed up. My best guess is that I had it between settings.  Oh my, it was enough to give me a good scare.  I sure use it a lot. I told Andy that if it is broken, scratch everything off the Mother's Day list, I just need a crock pot.  :)  Blessings.

5 favorite bath items

1. Aveda energizing body wash-it is invigorating especially on rainy days.  I certainly needed it this morning.
2. Mary Kay Time Wise.
3. Redken fresh curls - New formula <3
4. Yes to carrots eye cream
5. Nivea body lotion has a great scent.

weight watchers

Well, I joined weight watchers yesterday.  Andy has been doing the on-line program for the past month and a half and is down 20 lbs.  so I thought I would give it a try as well.  I actually have done it in the past and was quite successful with it. I am excited about it. The only downside is I get half the amount of "points" as Andy which is challenging for me.  I am also more used to going to the meetings, so we shall see how the on-line side works out.  I am glad to be doing it with Andy.  Blessings.

I have been on a mission to weed the dandelions from the yard.  If I'd known it was going to be this much work, I'd have not taken on the challenge.  It seems as if there are more weeds to pull each day.  I have a weeder that looks like a prong on a stick, so it is quite labor intensive.  The girls play barefoot in the front yard, so I don't want to use pesticides.  It is supposed to storm today, so I doubt I'll get a chance to work in the yard this afternoon.  I'll just have more to do tomorrow once the yard is "watered."   Blessings.

weekend fun

My folks nabbed a kiddie 4 wheeler and a motorized jeep for just a few dollars.  I think it's the best money they've spent in a while based on the smiles. We had a great time with my family over the weekend doing all kinds of things together.  Andy also got to be in the woods a little, hunting for a turkey, but he was unsuccessful - this trip.  Blessings.

My aunt Donna called yesterday and said that she is in complete remission from this most recent bout with cancer.  Hooray for answered prayers. Blessings

cousin time

Last week we had Andy's younger sisters and their families in for a visit.  It was so much fun.  We went to Trader Joe's, Smash burger, the mall, Joseph Beth, Chick fil a, the park, and Gattitown.  We also had a lot of play time at home - biking and blowing bubbles, playing dolls and games. It was a different having the families here through the week, but such a nice experience.  Everyone had a great time.  I know that the girls are having cousin withdrawal this week. While watching a video of our TN cousins, Betsy shouted at the computer, "I love you."  We sure do!  Blessings.

Silly heads

The girls have really enjoyed playing around on the iPad and think these pictures are hilarious. I do too. Hope you find them just as fun. Blessings.
