What we're eating this week:
Monday- Marla made Chicken Pot Pie at her house and made an extra one for us. The best dinner is the kind you don't have to cook, right? It was delish!
Tuesday-We made homemade pizzas with all the toppings.
Wednesday-Tonight we're having Beer Cheese Joe's.
Thursday-We're having Shay's Chipotle Corn Chicken.
Friday-We're having a super simple meal that my kiddos gobble up. I buy chicken tenderloins and cut them in half. Then I wrap half a piece of turkey bacon (I usually get the low sodium kind) around the piece of chicken and bake them. They're crazy easy and my kiddos can't get enough! I'm a condiment freak, so I dip mine in a Thai chili sauce, but the other members of my family eat them plain.
What I'm reminiscing about: Our awesome trip to Disney World last year. I can hardly believe it's been a whole year since we were there. We went on the trip with my parents and my brother, sister-in-law, and their two boys. We had the absolute BEST time!
What I'm loving: That summer is right around the corner!! It can't get here fast enough. We are ready for pool days!
What we've been up to: There has a been a LOT of this going on around here. We've been staying in, watching movies, reading, and waiting for the sun. Nixon has approximately 12 tee-ball games to make up!
What I'm dreading: Putting away four loads of laundry. haha! I told you guys laundry is my weakness especially the putting it away part. As I work on this post, I'm on load #4. I'm about to have to put that all away! WAAAHHH!!
What I'm working on: Last month I was dreading cleaning out all the closets and I'm SO happy to report that is DONE! Closets are ALL clean in the Slaughter House. :)
What I'm excited about: We are all looking forward to our upcoming beach vacation. We do a lot of relaxing on the beach and pool-side lounging on this trip. We started going pre-kiddos and have since started a tradition with Tab's dad and his side of the family. It's going to be a great week!
What I'm watching/reading: I tend to keep a book in my car and then one inside so I'm always reading two books at one time. Right now I'm reading Let's Pretend This Never Happened and Own Your Life. I'll give you a review on both soon! I've been watching The Bachelorette (because I just can't quit!!) and we started watching Texas Rising (all about how Texas got it's independence) on Monday night. I'm the complete opposite of a history buff, but if you mix in history with a good television show I can hang!
What I'm listening to: As I type, I'm listening to Gilmore Girls. Only on Season 2...so many more episodes to go!
What I'm wearing: STRIPES!
Maxi Dress: Similar option here.
What I'm doing this weekend: My parents are coming into town to catch a tee-ball game (maybe). We'll be hanging with the grandparents. :)
What I'm looking forward to next month: Summer! Summer! Summer Vacation!! We have swim lessons, a beach vacation, and something big planned!
What else is new: I can't even believe I'm typing this but...BOWEN IS WEARING UNDERWEAR!! I still put him in a diaper at night time. He's usually wet in the morning AND I still have a lot of diapers. I wasn't expecting him to really be interested. So far he is doing GREAT!
What's my favorite thing to grill: Our grill is on the brink of death, so we have to be very selective in what we grill. It tends to either burn the chicken or it takes forever to cook it. But...it can still grill the perfect burger! We love burgers on the grill. Pretty much any kind! Our favorite might be Shay's Cheddar Beer Burgers. We also love grilled shrimp! We'll eat it plain or have shrimp fajitas.
Thanks for stopping by, today!!
