Happy Monday!

Mads rose from Daddy

Well, here we are again.  Another Monday.  When I worked I always hated Monday.  It meant I had to take my precious little girl back to daycare and make the long drive to the Real Estate office.  Then I would make the long drive home, rush to get dinner done, rush to spend an ounce of time with my baby, rush to get to bed.  I loved the weekends that I had all day, every Saturday and Sunday, to spend with my little family.  When Monday came around again it would mean back to the grind and back to not much time being spent with my girl.

Now that I don't work, it is just another day.  Especially during the summer.  Nothing really special about it, I will eventually get up and clean something.  Probably the kitchen......again.  Then the dining room.

We had a pretty busy weekend.  It was the Mads recital.  She did a great job, got a bit frustrated during her first dance because girls kept jumping in front of her, but she did her best and that is all that matters.


She just loves to sing and dance.  Her days during the summer are spent dancing around the house and making up songs.  Some of them are pretty good, others well....um....then there are others.  ;-)

This years recital was a bit boring to us.  I am guessing this is how it will be for the years to come until it is her last one.  Last year was her very first recital and we had all the excitement of it being the first.  But, just as much as she loves to dance, I love to watch her.  She is really very good.

After the recital we went for the traditional ice cream.  That was an event.  MG wanted nothing but chocolate milk but we got her ice cream anyway, she did not know that.  As we were walking out of Braum's she realized every one but her was holding ice cream.  SO!  What else does a two year old do?  She threw a fit and threw her milk on the ground.  Thank goodness no one was in range of the giant splash!  Oh my!

One last pic!  This is the result of a VERY long day and trying to eat ice cream in a dark car.  :-)


Happy Monday!  I hope you have a great one and I hope you had a fantastic weekend!

FROZEN Hot Chocolate

I am sure by now, most of you know that FROZEN the Movie is coming to theaters THIS WEEK (the 27th to be exact)! I am so excited!! My girls saw some of the FROZEN merchandise while we were at Walt Disney World and that is all they could talk about.....for days! It has been a rough school year for both of the girls so far. Mads is adjusting to being in the upper elementary, was dealing with a bully and gets super frustrated with math (even though she is really good at it). MG is adjusting to actually being in school, went through a time of having accidents at school and she just misses her mommy. To celebrate Mads good grades and MG going a month accident free, I decided to treat the girls with a few fun new toys and some hot chocolate. Once I heard that FROZEN merchandise was available at Walmart, I ran to stock up. While I was there, it hit me! I could have #Frozenfun with the hot chocolate and make FROZEN Hot chocolate! I just knew the girls would love it! I was k

Le Cellier - Chedder Cheese Soup Recipe Review

I first talked about this soup here .   I have to admit, was not real eager to try this soup.  I can not stand the taste of beer.  PERIOD!  It doesn't take much in a recipe for me to be able to taste it.  With that being said, the soup wasn't bad.  I would try it with ginger ale next time though. Before I tell you what I thought of the soup I need to be fair and tell you about some changes I made to the recipe. First, the recipe tells you to cook the bacon just to render out the fats, not to make crispy.  I did not render out enough of the fats and in fact next time, I would cook the bacon until it IS crispy.  I don't like limp bacon, I like my bacon extra crispy. Second, I TOTALLY forgot to cook down the onions and celery before adding the flour!  Ummmm......ooops! So my bacon was limp and my veggies were crispy!  HAHA! Next, I am not on a budget to be able to purchase "Aged White Cheddar" so good ol Yellow Sharp Cheddar it was! I did NOT add one tablespoo

Strawberries and Cream Instant Oatmeal | Recipe

I don't know about you but, we go through oatmeal like that is the only thing to eat on this planet!   Seriously a TON! My youngest would eat it for every meal and snack....every day....if I let her. Yes, the little packs can be cheap (if you can find a coupon and get them on sale) but it still adds up.  I used things I already had on hand so there was no extra cost to make this.  FREE is ALWAYS good!   I tried before to make little packets to keep on hand but that was a complete fail.  I have since reworked the recipe and am happy with the results.  I decided to just keep the oatmeal in a glass container this time and scoop out what we need, when we need it.  You can also make this into packets by just scooping the desired amount into zip-top bags. {Strawberries & Cream Instant Oatmeal}   12 Servings 6 Cups Quick Cook Oats 1 1/2 Cups Oat Powder 2 Cups Powdered Milk 1 - 1 1/2 Cup Sugar 1 Cup Freeze Dried Strawberries Directions f
