Weekend Wrap-up 11

We had SO much FUN over the weekend!

Friday was spent working outside.  I started cleaning the pool and hubby continued working on the fence.

We did not winterize our little pool last year, nor did we ever put the cover on it.  So to say it was gross was a gross understatement.  Growing up I would watch my aunt clean our pool wearing black trash bags, held on with rubber bands, on her feet and legs, long rubber gloves, a mask and she may or may not have worn ski goggles at one point, maybe it was just her sunglasses and I am remembering that part wrong.  Now I totally understand why she wore all of that!  YUCK!  I think I took 15 showers over the weekend!  HAHA!
I was just about done when I decided "Hey, I should take a pic of this for the blog" so...all you get of the before is that tiny spot.  lol  But trust me, it was nasty.

I started off using my garden hose and a scrub brush, I was not getting very far like that though.  Then I decided to get the power-washer out!  Oh my goodness!  What a difference THAT made!  It took no time at all before I was done with the really gross parts.  I still need to go back and really scrub some areas but, we should have a pool by next week!

Saturday morning was more yard/pool work.  That afternoon the girls and I went to my friends recital, she owns a dance studio in town.  Mads and I LOVED it, MG...not so much.  She just can't sit still that long.  We had to leave after intermission because she started screaming.  Lovely.

Saturday night we took my mil with us to watch my friend sing.  It was REALLY hot in the building and again, MG did not last long.  But, we still had a great time and the girls got to dance and I got to see my friend.
She sings with Corky Davis and Cowboy Swing.  They sing old country swing songs.  Michelle has an AMAZING voice, you can hear it if you go here.
Hubs took the girls outside to play while I listened a bit more.
This was the theater.

Once we left there, we headed to Cherry Berry.  YUM!

Sunday we took it easy, went and had lunch at Clanton's then headed to Walmart so I could do a shop.  After WM we went to Lowe's and Dairy Queen.  Then it was back home to get ready for church.  After church we came back home and the girls played outside a bit longer.
I know it is hard to see but Mads was tracing the reflection of the lights, it made it look like her pic was glowing.  She was pretty excited about it.

Oh!  I also worked in the garden this weekend.  I need to get in there again and finish weeding.  But for now, that will have to wait.

I am leaving tomorrow for church camp!  I am pretty excited and hope there isn't much drama between all the little girls.  We get back Saturday and I have a birthday party that night and Father's Day on Sunday.  Monday MG starts dance camp.  Phew!

I hope you all had a GREAT weekend and are having and awesome week so far.

Much love, 
Brandi

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…
