bologna

Just a little peek at our lives playing out on social media this weekend…

My husband comes home all excited to try a new recipe for dinner tomorrow. Marinated and grilled Bologna steaks, topped with homemade coleslaw. He even had 1 inch steaks cut from the deli at Albertsons …. Ummmmm if I’m going to come home with $16 in meat I can guarantee you it ain’t going to be Bologna. I found this both irritating and hilarious all at the same time. Yet another reason I love my quirky guy I get to call my husband, he keeps life interesting. #grossrecipes #weresthebeef#wholooksupbolognarecipes#whyguysshouldnotusepinterest #family

bolognaJust in case any of you wanted to know how the Bologna steak sandwich turned out (yes the $16 mistake in my mind lol). I Made sure to have lots of sides in an effort to try and save my kids in case it was disgusting, that way there was something to eat. BUT we ended up not needing them.  Shocking they where actually kinda good ( and I don’t even like Bologna) the marinade was good and the BBQ made the edges nice and crisp. We did cut the 1 inch in half so it was only 1/2 inch instead…… I don’t plan to put it on our regular menu, but it was better than I expected. 3 of my kids asked for 2nds. After they got brave enough to taste it the first time.

If you do not already follow us on Instagram we would love to have you, and share in the Moments We Want To Remember each week!Grandma Callahans vintage dressI went to a Halloween party yesterday in my Grandma Callahan’s vintage clothes. She passed away two years ago, I miss her dearly. She had lots of cute clothes from her younger years which some of my cousins inherited. This double knit outfit was in a pile that no one wanted, my Mom thought maybe she would turn some of her old clothes into a quilt instead of donating them to DI. I was pregnant and it didn’t fit and I even thought it was a tad ugly… Yet it was a piece of my Grandma’s history… Her story. So I took it home with me.
I had bought this hat and another dress at a vintage sale and planned to wear it today.. But out of the blue remembered my Grandma’s dress so I tried it on… IT FIT. I got all emotional, so strange to be wearing her clothes. I wonder what she did or saw in this dress? Wish I could ask her.
So today I went dressed as my cute hip Grandma… I am so glad I saved this dress. I’m rather fond of it now… Heck I might even wear it to church. Love you Grandma thanks for being such a huge part of my life!

kids start schoolIf you follow me on Instagram you know that 4 of my 5  kids started school this week.  My adorable 5 year old started kindergarten. As I dropped him off to school we was a little worried about leaving Mom, but was brave and left my side.  I was eager for him to come home so I could see how his day went. I met him at the bus stop and as he bounced off the bus he told me all about his day. It was too cute not to share.

First day of school 2015, free printable back to school signsSummer sure was fun, we played hard, stayed up later than we should have.  It always seems to go way to fast…. yet at the same time it goes in slow motion when the kids are fighting or saying “I’m Bored”. But I sure do love having them home.  It is always hard for me to send them back to school and every year I think maybe I should home school them…. then I remember that I am really good at lots of things, but structure and teaching is NOT my #1 talent and we go back to public school.

I love the excitement and enthusiasm they have for the first day of school. They all pop right out of bed get dressed and bounce down the stairs for breakfast. We will see how long that attitude will last.

First day of school 2015, free printable back to school signsWe took our traditional BACK TO SCHOOL first day of school photo.  It is amazing how much they change in a year. You can get the FREE PRINTABLE Back To School Signs here.

Now it is just me and my baby at home, she keeps wandering around the house looking for everyone.
