Big Girls Don't Cry

I made this shirt for Viv's first day of kindergarten and it was pretty easy- I think I'll make one for Sophie and post the tutorial. And, luckily for me, Viv was a big girl and didn't cry. Her mom on the other hand was a big old cry baby and cried the whole 2 blocks home from the school after dropping her off. She had a great day and says she loves her teacher and that getting chocolate milk at lunch is really cool! Oh, and in classic Viv fashion, she says her favorite thing about her teacher is that "she looked fantastic". What a girl!

Day 1 of new dinners = VICTORY!

UN-STUFFED PEPPER SKILLET , from one oe my favorite cooking blogs was a huge success. Oh, and did I mention it's dirt cheap to make?  That's quite possibly my favorite part.  This one is getting added to the recipe file for sure!

Augustus 411

Just the highlights!  Brent unexpectedly switched jobs, which also meant he had some time in between, two weeks of vacation time saved up from the old job to be exact, so after we hung out around home for 4 days we decided on a whim to head out to Utah to visit family.  It was fun, but so tiring and the thought of making that drive again makes me want to puke!
We were home about 10 days and then we headed to SW Michigan for a week at the lake with the Staller clan.  We had lots and lots of fun, and now I'm exhausted!
I have SIX!!!! new recipes I'm trying this week; I got all of my groceries today and Un-Stuffed Pepper Casserole is in the oven right now.  Hopefully I'll be better about this blog stuff and can let you all know how it turns out!
