More fun going on around here...

I'm also linking up with my friend, Andrea, at Momfessionals to share a recipe!!  

Actually this month...I'm cheating.  I promise to do better next month, but this month...I'm sharing an old post about my Top Three-Spring Meals.  If you haven't tried these at your home, you need to add them to your menu.  These are Slaughter Spring Faves!!!

This is hands-down my VERY favorite spring/summer meal.  It's delicious.  There is spinach inside AND ALL my kids love it too!  If you haven't made this yet, what are you waiting for??

We love burgers on the grill, but you know what we love even more??  A fancy burger on the grill!!  These are DELISH!!  Serve these at your next cookout and you'll have extra people showing up!!

I just added these to our meal plan again for next week and can't wait!!  These are so yummy!  The Slaughters are BIG baked taco fans.  Tab and I eat them like a taco, but the big kiddos will break them up to eat like nachos.  It's a win-win.  They think they're getting to each CHIPS for dinner and I know they're really eating spinach!!  haha!

Those are my very faves!!  You should add these to your menu this week.  I PROMISE you will not be disappointed!!

May Bucket List

Can you believe April is ALMOST OVER???  It pretty much flew by over here at the Slaughter house!  We have a fun summer planned, so we're looking forward to May!  Emily and I are sharing our Bucket Lists for the month of May.  Here is what we have coming up...

I started to say FIRST SWIM but that's a lie.  We've let the kiddos swim a couple days already at the gym (pool is heated).  So..instead I'm going to say LOTS of SWIMMING!!

Ebby Lee GRADUATES from preschool!!!  I know she's only five, but in my head I keep thinking, "It's going to be like this...

in no time."  Time SLOW down!!!

I'm not sure this is really gonna happen this year, but for the past few years Tab and I have gone to the Byron Nelson golf tournament in Dallas.  I don't know much about golf.  But...it's a GREAT time hanging out with friends and enjoying the beautiful weather!

We're headed to Disney World this month!!!  

We'll actually be partyin' it up in DW for Mother's Day!  
(Slaughters on Mother's Day last year & Bowen's Dedication)

EEK!!!  I can't believe I'm posting this picture again!!!  This pool/backyard was a MESS!!!  The pool is already looking 100% better...now we're working on the rest of the backyard.  Can't wait to finish that project and show you pictures!!

Favorite Things Party

Andrea and I are at it again!!!  We're sharing our favorite thing (or two) under $10!  Please join us today.  Blog your favorite thing and then link up with us.  We look forward to this all month long and can't wait to check out your favorites!!

I'm giving you a little back story on mine.  A few months ago, I carpooled with Sarah and Narci to a friend's house.  When Narci and I got in Sarah's car, we could NOT stop talking about how good it smelled.  I seriously went on and on!  She told us about this Gain air freshener for your car!!  A couple days later a surprise was on my doorstep (thank you, Sarah!!).  Let me just say that since then I've gotten several comments on how good my car smells!!!

I LOVE that it makes my car smell good, but it doesn't have a typical car air freshener smell.  (You know like the pine tree hanging from your mirror?  I had a lemon hanging from my mirror in high school when I was cruisin' around in my 1985 Pontiac Trans Am.  Real cool, huh?)

I'm going to be honest....the first two or three days the Gain freshener is a little stout.  Tab ALMOST made me remove it.  But...once you get over that three-day period, YOU WILL LOVE IT!!!



And...some of my VERY favorite layering tanks are on sale this week at Target!!  (Thanks, Amy!!)  They're on sale for $6.00 in fun summer colors so stock up!  I wear these ALL the time!!

#4
The Slaughters are packing up and heading to Disney World in a little over a week.  We are SO excited!!!

Scandal...some of my friends (I won't name any names, but you know who you are) gave me an ultimatum.  Start watching Scandal or we couldn't be friends (don't worry...they were only kidding).  But...Tab and I started.  The first few episodes were okay, but we're now on episode six of season one and it's getting REALLY good!  So, if you start season one...just know it gets way better!

Scripture Art & a Handsome Man in some Bluebonnets


Let me introduce you to a company called Scripture Art.  They are an amazing faith based company that has amazing products ranging from personalized gifts to chore charts for the kiddos.  You have to go check them out...great stuff!!  Especially gifts...PERFECT for Mother's Day!  Here are a few of my favorites...
Who wouldn't love a Statement Bible Case??  So cute!!!  It's on sale right now for under $15.

The sweet girls at Scripture Art sent me this Menu Planner.  I've loved being able to display what we'll be eating (and in a fashionable way).  Tab is always asking what's for dinner...now he doesn't have to ask!

I think these Promise Packs are SO cool!!  Each promise pack includes TWO 3″ x 5″ scripture memory decals made of high quality vinyl that is removable and re-positionable.  They're only $6.99 (and I have a coupon code for you so even less!).  There are a variety of packs ranging from "Encouragement" to "Finding Purpose".  This would make a GREAT little gift for a friend or family member going through a difficult time.  The Promise Pack above is "Finding Peace".
This Promise Pack is "Finding Comfort".

Great gift idea...personalized phone case!


I also received this Chore Chart to try out with my kiddos. I need to order another one ASAP!  I love it because it includes the peel and stick stickers.  My kiddos ask me constantly, "If I do this, can I get a check on the chore chart?". hahaha!!  Great for kiddos to learn some responsibility!!  

The sweet girls at Scripture Art are offering us a COUPON CODE (I LOVE coupon codes, don't you?).  Use the code guess25 to receive 25% off!!!

Follow Scripture Art on Facebook here.
Follow Scripture Art on Twitter here.



And...my friend, Narci, took some pictures of Bowen in the bluebonnets a couple weeks ago.  I have to share them.  They are DARLING!!!

Sister started off the party!  It was her birthday so Mrs. Narci insisted she get a picture.  :)  I wasn't planning on that...so she chose her dress AND her own hair accessories!  ha!




His hair looks CRAZY in this one and I LOVE it!


 Melt my heart









My ABSOLUTE FAVORITE!!!  This is what Bowen looks like the majority of the time, so Narci TRULY captured him in this picture!  Thank you, Narci!!!  They are FABULOUS!!!
