Time goes....


So fast! Marie and I had such a nice time. We talked and talked and played! She touched up my hair and then I decided I wanted a new look with my bangs too. Unfortunately we didn't take any pictures, but I will post some pictures of my slightly new look soon :) We also had fun trying on this really nice facial mask. By the time we did all this our time was gone and we had to get to bed! I think we needed two days! =) Lisa, no we didn't watch any movies, we tried but we ended up talking over the movie!

Im Off....


Im off to visit Marie! Her husband John is away on a business trip and she cant stay alone right? I think girls sometimes need a little feminine time! :) The last time I had Marie to myself was the night before my wedding. She is going to do my hair and we are probably going to do each other's toes! And of course we will have our cup of tea. Benjamin will be fine right? :) Maybe we will take a few pictures and I will share =)

Antiquing



Yesterday Ruthie and I went antiquing! We found two antique malls close to our area and they were side by side! The real nice thing about it was that everything was very affordable. We wanted to buy up everything just because of the prices. :) I found this adorable little writing table and I couldn't pass it up. I love white furniture. The best part about it was the price :) So I am trying to figure out the right place it belongs in the house. The cats are really enjoying it as well! :)

Cash Flow


Has anyone heard of the board game Cash Flow? It is rather expensive, but VERY educational! Our friends have it and brought it over last night. We were up until 12:30 A.M. playing! I learned so much about investing, stocks and being brilliant with money! Its great for all you homeschool moms! All I want to do now is go out and buy a business! :)

A Gift From Mom



Benjamin received some plum preserves from my mom for his birthday. I'm afraid I will eat it all up before he gets a chance to try it! :) When we were kids we used to go out and pick plums close to our house. We did it every year. It has been a long time since I have tried mom's jam. Boy did it bring back memories! Thank you mom! :)

Fall is Here




Fall is here!!! The high today is 75! We turned off the air conditioner and opened the windows and oh is it nice! 

Elon is visiting us for the day! He is having his nap right now. His parents forgot his net that goes over his little crib (he can get out of it) so we had to put a mattress over his crib! It worked so well, he went to sleep right away! He he he! I took some pictures of him playing with our cats. Bobby tied some string around his little wrist and Elon just loved it! The cats did too =) Here are some pictures of them at play.

Lemon Feta Cheese Green Onion Dip


We are going over to my brother's house tonight and everyone is bringing a snack, so I made this recipe, I was going to bring pita bread, but I couldn't find it at the store, I even went to Whole Foods and they didn't have any. So I will have to make do with french bread or crackers. Its very different, but I love feta cheese. Hopefully everyone will like it as well =)

This is Bobby Flay's Recipe. (I love him :)

Ingredients

  • 12 green onions, green part only, grilled and chopped, plus additional thinly sliced green onions, for garnish
  • 1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil, plus additional for grilling pitas
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • 2 teaspoons finely chopped lemon zest
  • Salt and freshly ground pepper
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 1 pound feta cheese, crumbled
  • 8 pocketless pitas

  • Directions

    Place grilled green onions, oil, lemon juice, and zest in a food processor and process until smooth. Add the feta and garlic and process until combined and smooth. Scrape the mixture into a bowl and garnish with the additional sliced green onions.

    Heat grill to high. Brush the pitas with the remaining oil and season with salt and pepper, to taste. Grill for 1 minute per side or until lightly golden brown. Remove from the grill and cut each pita into eighths. Serve with the feta dip.

Date Night


We finally had a date night! Life seems to be really busy lately and so it was really nice to enjoy each other on our friday night! =) We went and saw a movie. Which was very patriotic and quite amusing...... American Carol. I wouldn't recommend it for the family, because of language and a lot of junk talk, but the message was brilliant. And its so nice to see truth being spoken on the big screen! Have a great weekend everyone!
