Friday was fun! I took my kids to see the movie Despicable Me 2. We ate a bunch of popcorn, while we were there. Afterwards, we walked around looking at booths during Cornucopia Days. When we were through...we went to McD's drive-thru to get some ice cream cones. When we got home, we had a dvd to watch together, too. It really was a good day.
Saturday was simple. We all watched some tv, did some chores around the house and yard, and I reorganized a few kitchen cabinets, too!
Sunday dinner - my husband grilled some teriyaki chicken and baked potatoes for us. Yum!!!
Did I mention he cooked us eggs & turkey-bacon for breakfast, too? Lucky me - no cooking for me today!
Monday, I started the morning off with happy kids. Thanks to my son's request, I made them some chocolate-peanut butter pancakes with bananas (my idea to add some fruit, not my son's - LOL), mini chocolate chips, syrup and some whip cream to top it off! Afterwards, I enjoyed my coffee along with a lovely cool breeze that was coming in through all the windows.
Being in such a summery mood, I decided to make some jell-o for after dinner dessert. So after I made that, we made and all enjoyed some shaved ice. Later we munched on some chilled watermelon. Mmm... Then, I decided to make some sort of pasta salad for our dinner. Rotini, cherry tomatoes, olives, summer sausage, yellow bell pepper, cucumber, and bits of carrots were thrown together and chilled with some Italian dressing. When I served it, I sprinkled some shredded Italian cheese blend on the top. Ahhh.... gotta love those easy going summer days.
It's been a warm day, although overcast. Tonight, as I sit here typing this, it's time for a cool drink. So, I'm sipping on a mixture of a non-alcoholic "mocktail" I made from TGI Friday's® Hard Lemonade Mix, Sierra Mist and sliced lemons.
We are kind of 'home-bodies" at times and it's nice to be home with my kids. AND I'm grateful that I can be. I'm thankful for the time I have with them.
Now, I'm gonna go watch a show with my husband. He's patiently waiting for me. I hope you all enjoy the rest of the week!
My name is Candie. Many labels describe me including wife, mom, friend, and independent consultant. However, alone, none of them capture all that I am or love and there are too many to list. Some of my likes include cooking, crafting, and creating. Reading, camping, and spending time with my family also bring me joy. I love my life...
