Wordless Wednesday

Happy Wednesday!!!

We bought Parker an "Elmo" over the weekend. I think he likes him :)

This is how much I weigh today...on Monday I was 163.8. I know you are not supposed to weigh in every morning but I need to see these #'s for motivation :)

BOGO Aero Mint

Aero Mint!
This has got to be 1 of my favorite chocolate bars! Unfortunately right now it doesn't seem to be part of  my diet :(
Click here for a BOGO coupon :)
I am promising myself that after 20 lbs have fallen off of my body, this bar will be in my mouth :)

Tasty Tuesdays Baked Beans

Baked Beans (Slow cooker)

1 lb kidney beans
3/4 cup ketchup
1/2 cup molasses
2 tsp dry mustard
2 tsp salt
1/2 cup brown sugar
1-2 tsp vinegar (I like my beans a little sour so I put the full 2)
4 cups of water (I only put 2!)

Soak beans overnight
Boil beans for about 45 minutes. When you can "blow the skin off" the beans are ready.
Dump beans in slow cooker, mix all the ingredients and pour over top. Give a little stir, turn slow cooker on high and forget about them for about 7-8 hours :)
Maybe next week's recipe will be brown bread ;)

The Tooth Fairy

"MOM, THE TOOTH FAIRY DIDN'T COME LAST NIGHT!!!!" is what I woke up to this morning.

Tasty Tuesdays Peanut Brittle

Way back in January I posted a recipe for caramel pecan cookies and in the picture next to these ever so heavenly cookies was some ever so heavenly peanut brittle. I mentioned in that post that I would give you the recipe, so 2 months later, here it is :)

Mean Mama Monday

Mean Mama On Bedtimes
Around here we are quite strict on bedtimes. On a school night you (USUALLY) will not see us running the roads past 6:30...not with the kids anyway.

Post Flu Bug

Well, the flu has payed a nice visit to all of us. We hope it doesn't come back for a very long time. If it does decide to return I hope ALL the boys are old enough to know that when you feel like you have to barf you go (RUN) to the bathroom, don't just sit in your bed.

Flu Flu Go Away

Not too much in the blogging mood today. Mr. Flu Bug has found me. Should have known it was coming. Prince Charming was puking from 4:00 yesterday morning until 1:30 yesterday afternoon. I started running to the bathroom last night at around 6:30 and have been ever since! YUCK!
This seems to be a bug that is spreading like wildfire! Even people who did get their flu shots are sick. (reason # 1 why we didn't bother this year!)
In other news, Brittany leaves for Haiti today! I will be updating as I hear more! Please keep our team in your prayers!
Gotta run.....literally :/

Happy "ALMOST" Birthday Part 1

I know this is wordless Wednesday but I was just thinking about Riley's 8th birthday coming up on Friday. I just realized that it was on this date 8 years ago around 7 PM that I was admitted in early labour with him.

Wordless Wednesday

What is wrong with this picture? This was on Riley's last report card.
