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!

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.

For Such a Time as This

You know when you find a group of friends and you just sit back in amazement when you think of just how awesome they are? I am SO lucky to have a group like that in my life. I am even luckier to have this group in my girls' lives.  It is so very important to me for my girls to see the relationships I have with these women. The way we interact and love each other. It is important they see that even though each one of these women are very, very different, we still come together in love and laughter. It is also important to me that my girls see the relationships that these wonderful women have with their families. I am lucky enough to be close friends with two AMAZING families. We do things together, as families, we also do things together just the moms and kids. I love that my girls see these strong families and know that these families are there for them should they ever need them. In the times that we l…
