Updates...

This weekend was great....Saturday, Eric and I got a babysitter and had an awesome time....we played cards and accidentally met some really fun peeps....there is a group of people that meet up in Richmond. They're website is www.bargolfrichmond.com

On Sunday, we went to church, the birthday boy mowed the lawn, made pizzas and ate birthday cake.....our boating trip got cancelled though....:(....so, he went into work yesterday.....

My laptop died, so I am getting used to Eric's.....bare with me...

Today, I took Asher to the park, library, store and then to panera bread to get a french baguette and a wild berry smoothie for Asher.....we came home and while he was sucking his smoothie down....the house started shaking!!! I grabbed Asher and headed outside....yep, it was an earthquake!!!.....we came back in and I picked up a few things that fell in the kitchen.....Asher's whole closet was covered in black beans that fell from his closet shelf......not an easy clean-up......

Anyway, my phone isn't working....I can't freakin figure out why I can't put pictures on my blog right now.....frustrated....Asher wants to go outside and play....so, I gotta go!!!

A quick post....

Man....what a world-wind of a weekend!!! Friday, Eric took the day off and we got our babysitter to come and stay with Asher while we played all day......seriously....we had some serious fun....
drinking mojitos and playing rummy.....if I could only beat him.....

We woke up the next morning and headed to Jackson, Ohio for Ashley and TJ's wedding ceremony....it was beautiful....

It was good to see the family. After the reception, Grandma Roby spent time with Asher while we headed to a bar right next to our hotel to have some drinks. It was really good to catch up with Aunt Chris, Tim, Aunt Val and Glen. We don't get to see them often enough.

Today, was spent cleaning....and cleaning....and cleaning....

Well, that's, that's and there you go....:)

Date Day/Game Night

Yesterday was awesome!!! After a good workout at the Y, we decided to give Jessica (babysitter) a call....Eric and I went to a movie, walked around an outdoor mall and got PF Changs to go!!! We headed back home to have a game night!!!

Eric took Asher and washed both cars....he is now mowing the lawn....I am working on the inside of the house....sweeping....dishes....laundry.....trying to get everything done, so later we can watch movies or play rummy and probably make pizza!!!

The Watermelon Festival is today, but it's way too hot.....last year it was miserable....we decided to skip it....

Happy Friday!!

Hi Peeps!!

First of all....I am very happy to say that I am sleeping next to a brown belt ninja as of yesterday....how safe am I???...not sure I could be any safer.....:)
Doesn't he look scary??? Don't mess with him....one swipe of the arm or leg and your dead.....DEAD...

This morning we went to the Y and then to the store.....came home and I cooked up a storm!!! BTW....the roasted pineapple habanero salsa is pretty darn tasty....I might have added a little sugar to it though....

I decided to try a couple more recipes today...
SAUSAGE BALLS!!!
I think the recipe was not right though..too much flour...so, since I was going to make these suckers too...
I just added the butter and green chilies....plus 2 tablespoons of milk....I hope they turn out....:) It was the most time-consuming thing I did today....rolling out about 50 balls is never any fun....they are in the fridge....all set and ready to be baked later...

Pioneer Woman's Chili....
In the crockpot.....I really love her blog and cookbook.....she's working on a new one and I can't wait to get my hands on it!!!....I know the chili will be awesome!!!!

I also decided to make a bbq sauce recipe....
As I was making it.....I decided that I didn't want Eastern Carolina bbq sauce....so, I made a few adjustments and it totally rocks!!! I could eat it of a moving truck tire!!! LOL!!
I wrote all my adjustments in the book....I might have to make this again!!!

I also used the roasted pineapple habanero salsa in my homemade taquitos....I added black beans and monterey jack cheese.....should be delicious....

Eric and I are planning on playing rummy tonight and listening to live concerts on demand.....I got the new Shrek and Robots movies for Asher.....make him some popcorn and he'll be in heaven.....I also got him PopRocks to try....I just wonder what he'll do....it should be funny...:)....kind of excited about seeing his reaction!!!!...

Happy Friday!!!
