Seven Quick Takes Friday #1


Tomorrow I am going to having a grand ol' Yard sale and I still have yet to go through the house and find stuff! We already had a bunch in storage that we will be selling but there is ton's I need to get rid of here! I guess if I got off this blog here I could get some things done! I am hoping we can make some extra cash for our week long beach trip in April! We look forward to this every year. The kids are already getting excited. Here is our beach trip last April!


Speaking of Beach trips.... Mine and Seth's Five year anniversary is coming up while we are at the beach. Is there a certain thing you are supposed to get them for the Five year anniversary? I mean I told him I was good with just some shopping money while at the beach but he looked at me like I had two heads! We usually just go out to eat somewhere special (Dixie Stampede, Medieval Times, ETC.) but Poor Seth will not be able to eat meat while we are there (Gave it up for Lent) Unless we did it on Sunday... I know totally not thinking about the real reason for giving up something for Lent. Lord, Forgive me! :) Anyways Any Ideas of something I could get for him or make for him for our anniversary? Here is a pic of us from our wedding day almost five years ago!


It is 11:00AM here and I have yet to figure out whats for Dinner tonight! I know you can tell I am being Lazy today..... Maybe Leftover Potato Chowder from Last night? Fish Tacos? or heck with it and just go to McDonald's for a few fish sandwiches?? Let me tell you about this Potato Chowder! It came from a cookbook called Fix it, freeze it, Feast! I have to say it is awesome! You cook a big bulk of something at one time, bag it up individually, and freeze. Then when you are ready to eat you pull it out of the freezer and heat it up! Dinner time has been incredibly easy here since using these Recipes! Best yet, you can get it on your Kindle!!!!


As I sit here typing I have a cute little ten week old in my lap. She is just cooing away at me and smiling like crazy. I have to remember how short this time is and how fast she will grow up! I wish sometimes I could freeze time and the universe not be moving at lightening speed. It feels that everyone is in a rush nowadays... It is always the Fastest Car, groceries brought to you after ordering online (I love this though!). Everybody always watching the clock to see if it is time to get off work yet, How soon till bedtime for the kids. I just wish everyone (including myself) could slow down and savor the special moments. They don't last long and in a blink of an eye they will be married with Kids of their own. here is the Three most Beautiful Kids in the world! YeaYea I am partial! :)

5. Let me tell you how dangerous a Can of Ravioli is! I just went to change my son's steri Strip on his toe. A few days ago he was rummaging in the pantry like always and knocked a can of Ravioli off the shelf and it feel on his toe almost cutting his toe off. I had never seen so much blood! We took him to the er where they cleaned and Bandaged it up for us. I never would of thought it could do that much damage but I guess I was wrong! Here it is!


Today was a no school day. I always feel like I am missing something when we don't have school. I fill like my day is missing something. I guess we do get a lot of education in though. we baked cookies, watched Leapfrog Letters, Folded Clothes Together, ETC. I guess it is just the action of "Doing School" that I miss :)


I'm done now! Between taking care of the kids, cleaning house, and getting ready for the yard sale it has taken me from 11:00Am this morning until 5:19PM now to get this post done! Now to go load the car with all the Yard sale goodies!

  1. Happy Anniversary! I hope the sale goes well.

  2. Oh, my! I can't believe ravioli can did so much damage, but I hope it heals quickly!

    I am antsy to have a garage sale soon, too. This week I plan to do some major spring cleaning and that will definitely turn up more things I need to get rid of. Hope yours goes well!

  3. Ouch! Your poor son! Sorry I am the worlds worst gift giver it seems. But, maybe you could find a great pasta place, or the Melting Pot? Its rather pricy-but they do serve food without meat. Happy Anniversary!

  4. Thanks for the idea! I might have to try that. Melting pot wouldnt be that expensive since we would just do the cheese dip and choc dip.. :)
