Happier at Home

My husband and Savannah left Sunday to go to Louisiana. They've been gone for 3 days now and I started getting cranky and snippy yesterday. It never fails that when he's away (especially if he's in LA), I get ill and jealous and just a big grouch. We (I) fight more when he's away than if he's here.

I hate it, and yet it just flows out of me.

Lord, Help me to be content with situations in my life and to think before I speak, and to use kindness instead of harshness.

Happy Mother's Day!!

My wonderful Mother (and Nana!)
I couldn't function without my mom; she is truly wonderful. She is so generous and helpful to me, and I wish there was a way I could pay her back.

The moment I found out I was pregnant with Kylei, I was a Mom. I LOVE being a Mom even though at times I could pull my hair out. My girls mean the world to me. I love you Mom and I love you Kylei and Savannah! Thank you for giving me my most rewarding job ever! *muah*

blogging it up!

I don't know if any of you know (or care!) but I have another blog where I talk about education. It's what I'm studying in school and in a year, I will be an educator, Lord willing.

It's a little spastic there as it is here, except atleast everything is themed around EDUCATION. If that's something you'd like to read or comment on, stop by:

Fancy Nancy Party

Kylei turns 6 in less than two weeks and she wants a Fancy Nancy themed party. (If you're not familiar with Fancy Nancy books and you have a girly daughter, you MUST go to the library and check these out!)

Everything must be FANCY! Well...that's the problem. I need fancy stuff, lol.

I thought about going to Goodwill and seeing if I could find linens or pretty cake plates/trays/tiered dessert trays, etc. I also need fancy clothes for me too, cuz we have to dress up fancy of course! :)

I don't know if any of you have anything (even if I didn't mention it) that I might could borrow that you think would work or if you'd want to lend it, BUT if you do and would, please let me know. I'd appreciate it!!

Any ideas are welcome as well...creativity is so not my thing.

Colorful and oh so Good!

Today I made CRAB SALAD. I don't know where my mom got the recipe but she gave it to me, and I love it! I thought some of you might want to try it too. :)

1.5-2 lbs imitation crab meat, cut small chuncks/shredded
1c celery, finely chopped
1c white onion, finely chopped
6 oz chopped black olives (you can buy the cans of chopped olives)
4T salad dressing (not mayo)
1c shredded cheddar cheese
1c frozen peas

Mix all together. You may want to add more salad dressing.

Perfect eaten with Ritz crackers.
