These Are the Days

Oh, these days.  These ones that I’ve been pining for since January.  They are finally here again.

these are the days

The southern sunshine is like my therapy, 
and these wide open spaces make me breathe easier.
these are the days
these are the days
these are the days
these are the days
these are the days

And speaking of sunshine…

these are the days

this man is like a ray of it all on his own.

these are the days

It’s like he has gold growing out of his head. 😉

these are the days

these are the days

these are the days

these are the days

When this girl wasn’t busy sleeping her life away, she joined us.
And then she pooped.
these are the days
So she got to go skinny dipping in the sea.
Nothing wrong with a little salt water on the ol’ bum.
these are the days
these are the days
What’s a day on the beach without laying in the sand with your girlfriends?
these are the days
these are the days
And hello, Aunt Hottie.
Wouldn’t be the same without you here.
these are the days
these are the days

The Stuff Dreams Are Made Of

With one glance, can you guess where this image came from?

Father of the Bride. Steve Martin, Diane Keaton, Kimberly Williams, George Newbern, and Martin Short. I can not tell you how many times in my life I have watched this movie. I can probably quote the entire thing. This was the movie I based my wedding dreams on. This was the movie that I believed a wedding was supposed to be like.
My poor, poor parents.
Megan and I both did our Daddy/daughter dance to “The Way You Look Tonight” by Frank Sinatra because of this movie.
When Trey and I became engaged he was clueless about all things wedding, and everything that comes with planning one. I demanded that he watch our beloved flick, and then…
he understood. He caught on real quick. I was proud.
Last Saturday my sister got the wedding of her dreams. And most importantly, she married the man of her dreams. By the way, she was gorgeous. Absolutely stunning.
There was a lot of love last weekend, people. Contagious, and almost exhausting. Wait. It was exhausting. Wonderfully exhausting.
Weddings are like a cold glass of ice tea (sweetened with Splenda, of course. Yes, I know it’s not good for you, but I like it.) on a hot summer’s day.
They are refreshing. They challenge me to take a step back and look at my own marriage, how I treat my husband, and the kind of wife that I am currently. Am I giving him the respect that I am called to give him? Am I patient with him? Am I thinking of serving him before I think about serving myself? Am I quick to forgive?
A lot of times the answer to these questions is “no”. Sigh. But, like I said, that’s what I like about weddings. Gives you time to really reflect on these things. You listen, pray, and with God’s (and only God’s) help you make changes. So thankful for His Grace. So very thankful.
Have you ever smelled a whiff of an old perfume you used to wear and it almost takes you back to the day you were wearing it and what you were doing? Oh, you know what I’m talkin’ ’bout. Men’s cologne is the same way. There are guys I went to high school with who will forever be pegged as Coolwater, Polo, Calvin Klein, etc.
Weddings kind of have this effect. They take you back to the day when you were making those vows. They serve as a sweet reminder of the love that you share with your one and only.
Bryan and Megan are a testament to God’s faithfulness, and the power of prayer. Both sets of parents have been praying since day 1 for their child’s spouse, and on Saturday we witnessed first hand how God has blessed many people through the union of two of His children.

A Chicken Little Recipe

Chicken Little.

If you hang around our house long enough you will hear us call someone or some animal “Chicken Little”.

I call Benson “Chicken Little” and he knows that that’s what K-K calls him. He’ll tell you. It’s so funny to me that he calls Lael that now.
Jess had a picture out of Lael when she was tee tiny, and little 2 and a half year old Benson said,
“Hey, Mama. Is that baby Megan Lael?”
She said, “Yes, Benson, it is!”
He said, “Awwww. The lil’ chicken.”
I kid you not.
“Chicken Little”, “Little Chicken”, or just plain ‘ole “Chicken” will do. Don’t ask me to explain why we say it. When Lael was in utero we called her the “Kickin’ Chicken”, and lately “Sweet and Sour Chicken” would describe her pretty well. Her mood can shift like the wind.
Of course, when I had gone past my due date it was too perfect not to exclaim,
“This little chicken is fully cooked! She needs to come out of the oven!”
Yes, it’s a knee slapper, I know.
Corny, corny. I can’t help it though. I come from a family full of corny people, but hey, we laugh a lot!
Speaking of, does anyone remember the Chicken Little sandwich that KFC used to sell? Please tell me I’m not the only 80’s child out there who indulged in these little morsels of heaven. My mom used to occasionally drive through and buy one for me as a snack. Real healthy. Oh, but I loved them. It was a small chicken patty with mayonnaise on a small roll just perfect for little ‘ole me. They sold for 39 cents a pop.
Anywho, in honor of my beloved “Chicken Little” phrase, I wanted to share with you a baby food recipe that has become one of Lael’s faves.
It consists of:
1 cooked chicken breast
1 cooked sweet potato
and as much unsweetened applesauce as you please!
I would suggest cooking your sweet potato with a tablespoon of unsalted butter to add a little fat.
Cut the chicken breast and sweet potato into chunks, and then puree them and the applesauce together. Make sure to puree until you can only see tiny shreds of the chicken (chicken littles, if you will. heehee). You don’t want any big pieces of chicken quite yet if this is your baby’s first time eating meat. This is a great recipe for anyone who has already introduced their baby to the basic fruits and veggies. It gives your baby a variety of nutrients in one serving! Try it for yourself! You will find that it is delish!

I’m Just Gonna Be Honest

I DON’T COUPON.
I can almost hear the gasps coming through the world wide web!
And I can see you giving me the stink-eye through the computer screen.
Coupons stress me out. Period.
And I generally try to avoid things that stress me out.
It’s the latest craze, and if you coupon, I really do stand in awe of you. It takes a lot of hard work, research, dedication, and gumption to keep track of which stores are having sales, cut coupons, organize those coupons, remember to actually take those coupons with you to the store (my personal pit fall), and then remember to get them out of your purse (another pit fall).
But you probably have a notebook, box or special folder that you keep them in. 🙂 Am I right?
I saw a couple in Publix not too long ago shopping together. Grocery shopping is not something that Trey and I do together. And I’m okay with that. I’m in charge of food and always have been. I’m pretty sure the last time he went with me he strolled through the isles in a BlackBerrry daze. Emailing, texting, BlackBerry messaging, and possibly a little Pac-man. Bless his heart.
Back to the couponing couple. They were walking through each isle and stopping in almost every section of those isles to look through their clear, pocketed paged, uber-organized coupon notebook to see if they had a coupon for the particular item they were looking at.
Wow. Now that is some dedication to saving money.
Me, I would rather just pay the extra 50 cents.
I’m all about getting in and out of that store. You never know how long the baby girl is gonna last.
Plus, a lot of the coupons that I see are for stuff that I just don’t want! I have specific stuff that I want and I don’t veer away from it. I want Skippy Natural, so I don’t want the coupon for reduced fat JIF. And I don’t want to buy two whole jugs of laundry detergent so that I can get the third one 50% off.
I’m aware that many of you reading this love you some coupons. Heck, I love some coupons, too. Who doesn’t like free money? But I don’t like the work. Anyone wanna cut some out for me and send ’em my way? 🙂 Oh, and for stuff I want? K, thanks.
Now, if you’re thinking, “You don’t even use the 20% off Bed, Bath and Beyond coupons??!”
The answer to that is a resounding yes. I love those coupons. They are big and you can’t lose them. I keep them in my purse and always have one on hand when I visit that store.
And yes, I use the great 20% off ones that Babies R Us sends out in the mail. Any kind of coupon that is a percentage off the entire purchase–I can handle that.
No, I don’t “coupon”, but… (this is the part where I get to the point)
sometimes I find out about a really great deal on something and I jump on it like white on rice. A friend of mine told me about Target diapers, and I want to let you in on the little secret if you don’t already know.
They are great!!
Here’s the breakdown:
You can buy 96 Pampers Baby Dry diapers for $19.99
You can buy 84 Pampers Swaddlers for $19.99
You can buy 100 Huggies diapers for $19.79
or…
You can buy 96 Target brand diapers (Up & Up) for 13.69!!
They are super soft and super absorbent! This is a significant savings that I can get excited about. And my friends, I’m excited.
