Our Latest Favorite Dinner

Angel Hair Pasta Chicken

This is a really great dish when you want something simple, light and healthy for dinner...and its an easy recipe to adjust to your taste. (I, of course, add extra EVERYTHING!) Its even approved by Landon, which is a miracle of miracles these days. I'm surprised the child hasn't wasted away yet!

Check out the recipe here.

Andy's Results Are In!

Almost everyone has been told at some time or another that they look like a celebrity. I can usually find someone to compare everyone I meet to! (Check out my "Celebrity Look-A-Likes" here, Sharon's and Patrick's here, Andrea's and Kurt's here) I just completed my professional analysis ;oP of Andy...Here are the results:

Chris Burke:

(Two people have told him this on random occasions--Today we checked it out and those people were RIGHT!! These two could totally be brothers! Does everyone remember Corky from Life Goes On? I used to love that show!)

Macaulay Culkin:

(He gets this all the time!)

Kevin Bacon:

(Seriously, watch a Kevin Bacon film and you won't be able to miss the resemblance!!)

Freddie Prinze Jr:

(Look past the dark hair)

Fun With Mr. Potato Head's Glasses

Drunk Monkeys

Two of my brothers came over tonight--You KNOW a You Tube raid had to happen! This was one of our favorites from tonight:

The last few times I have watered my hanging basket on the front porch, a little bird has flown out in a fit of rage. I finally climbed up on a chair to see what was going on and saw a little nest! The plants in my hanging basket are dying quickly from the lack of water (I have to water them about 3 or 4 times a day to keep them looking healthy), but I can't bear the thought of running the Mama bird off by dumping water over her head several times a day. I guess we're just going to have to look like rednecks for a while with dead plants hanging all over our porch!

Yay! Eggs!

What's in Your Purse?

I saw this on Andrea's blog and just had to participate! I have actually been thinking about this a lot lately.

It all began with a diaper bag...the slow dissent into the not-matching "un-stylish-ness" of the what-not-to-wear mom. I can't complain. I made the transition easily. I LOVED having a giant diaper bag to toss everything in to. Extra clothes for Landon (and me)? CHECK! Camera? CHECK! Enough food to feed small country? CHECK! Tissues, first aid kit, hand sanitizer, movie theater candy (hey, no one dares check a diaper bag!)? CHECK, CHECK, CHECK, CHECK! Ahhh, the abyss of the giant diaper bag! A world of endless possibilities! I could pack my life in and pull it back out as needed, more prepared than the best little girl scout. Need tweezers? Tape? stamps? I had it all! I would just start digging, pulling things out like it was Mary Poppins bottomless bag and we'd be in business! I could never get lost, thanks to the trail of things I would drop behind me everywhere I went...And if I ever did, I could live out of my diaper bag for at least a week until someone found me. But, my baby got so old that it became ridiculous to lug my bag-o-junk everywhere we went. I got brave and downsized. I began leaving the house (feeling quite naked) with one of Landon's tiny backpacks. Diaper? Check. Travel box of wipes? Check. Hand sanitizer? Check. Snack? Check. Giant yawn? Check!

THEN, it got even worse. I went down to having one of those storage-box-by-the-car seat numbers in the back seat of my car (that STAYED IN MY CAR--Eek!) filled with a few "just in case" items that a potty-training toddler might need in a toilet emergency. What about the other day-to-day emergencies? What if Landon were to pick chewed gum up off of the sidewalk again and I didn't have sanitizer? What if we were out somewhere and Landon spilled an entire bottle of water on himself? *sigh* I needed my lifeline to look like a put-together prepared mom, but there was no going back.

I now have nothing in tow but a tiny Matt and Nat wallet hanging from my key chain--Yes, its there wherever I go, hanging on for dear life...My little "In Denial Diaper Bag" jam-packed with all the receipts, bonus cards & loose change it can handle...And zoo and library member cards, pretty USELESS health insurance cards (that's a whole other blog post!) my license & usually even my cell phone to boot!--LOL!

What ever happened to the woman of a thousand trendy handbags from the days of yore?? She comes out occasionally for a girls' night on the town, but never without tattling on herself by pulling out an old cookie or Dora the Explorer Band-Aids or Speed Racer car at some point.

....And where are the telltale raisins and cracker crumbs the ever-present marks of pre-school motherhood, you ask? Have no fear--They have not disappeared. They have merely migrated...all over my car! (And sometimes right in my pockets--take your pick!).

Like the Smell of New Shower Curtains?

How about the nice headache you get from it? :oP

I found this on the Nature Moms Blog and thought I'd pass the link on to all of you (especially to my readers who are parents).

If you don't feel like reading the blog post (it isn't very long though), just click here for a quick run down of what the warnings are.

Too-da-loo! :o)
