Weekend Wrap-up

 {Yes! Mads hair IS still wet, it was a race to get to the hunt!}

We are getting into the time of year when we are busy NON-STOP!

Seriously!

It seems to start during spring break and we do not slow down until June, but we only get about a week of down time in June before it all starts back over in July and we don't stop again until about January.  I am not even kidding you!  Between birthdays, weddings, graduations, meetings, church, church activities, end of school, end of school programs, business stuff, family stuff, the list goes on and on.  EVERY weekend is packed!  

Oh, you wanted to make plans to go do something fun?  I am really very sorry but let me pencil you in for next year.  It seems like it is just about THAT bad.  Let's just take April for instance, this month we have.....
Easter weekend, MG's birthday weekend, as of right now the weekend of the 21st is free then the next weekend we are helping my grandparents move.

I thought it would be fun if on Monday's I posted about our crazy busy weekends, or not so crazy busy weekends.  Just to let you in on a part of my life that not a lot of people see.

This weekend I....

Made 3 dozen scones!
I then drove an hour (can you believe I did not eat ONE on my drive) to the Money Saving Queen Coupon Swap.
 This was before the swap started, by the end of the night the tables are COVERED with coupons.
I don't really go for the coupons anymore, I go for the food.
 
 One of the ladies brought these FABULOUS Mocha Cupcakes!  YUM!

Saturday we took the girls to the Easter egg hunt in town.
 
{No, her hair is NOT really this crazy!  She was running for eggs!}
I love my sweet girls!

Saturday evening we went to my MIL's house, hubby worked on her mower then mowed the lawn for her.  The girls decided they wanted to stay the night so we just fixed dinner there.
 
Of course we had to stop and blow our wishes first.
I LOVE my MIL's range!  She has a GRILL!  ON her STOVE!  Totally AWESOME!
Since hubby and I were kid free for the night you may think we went on a date or something.....nope!  We came home and enjoyed the peace!  I got some work done and he played on the computer, we listened to the police scanner for a bit then went to sleep.  We are wild and crazy I tell you!  HA!

Sunday was church, it was a good service.  Sunday night I went to a friends church for their monthly women's meeting.  Fun was had by all.  Each month they sponsor a local organization and this months organization is the Community Crisis Center.  They help women get away from abusive relationships.  AWESOME organization that I plan to learn more about.  They also have a speaker each month.  Tonight was Ms. E who talked about anger management.  It was a really good night!
The meal tonight was catered by an area cafe (Clanton's Cafe).  It's a pretty cool place, if you are ever near you should check it out!

This was actually one of our milder, as in not crazy busy, weekends.  It's the calm before the storm!  I hope you all had an amazing weekend!  Happy Monday!

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
