It's almost the end of the school year - two more days to be precise - and life is busy as ever. Parties, picnics, graduation walks, more parties, teacher gifts and did I mention parties? My girls are about to emark on middle school and high school... life changing things like lockers, football games and trumpets are what we have to look forward to... and no, we're not discussing prom, boys and driving. Really. I don't wanna talk about it.

So I have been doing a few fun things lately.


I think I might be into sewing. Don't tell anyone that. I haven't fully embraced this idea completely, that perhaps gardening and sewing are my "things". I guess I should call my mama and apologize for all those years I whined, complained and stewed over working in the yard with her.


I made a Peach Cake. The recipe is from Barefoot Contessa. I would have taken a picture for you, but the cake didn't last long enough. You should try it. Yum. I have decided you can make it and count it as a breakfast food, since the recipe includes eggs, milk and fresh fruit. PERFECT!

Do you really have Quints by Surprise? It's just a question I'm asking.

I hate grocery shopping and meal planning. HATE IT. Coming up with seven days of meals that keep my family interested and fed is ... well... it sucks. So, I signed up for a little program called e-Mealz , which has almost revoluntionized our household grocery budget and mealtimes. Until the other day when I went "off" the plan and cooked a huge southern Sunday supper. And Josh said the words WHY DONT YOU COOK LIKE THIS ALL THE TIME? And I collapsed in the kitchen.

I love, LOVE! the show Sister Wives. Don't tell anyone that either, mmmk?

Well. I think that's it. I have far more serious things to discuss, however, the coffee is ready and the toddlers are awake. Until naptime....
