Saturday, September 3, 2011


This Saturday can be summed up in just a few words:

1- Smiles- These two sisters had a great day!  Mackaylan was excited to be able to hang around the house and play, and Lydia is always happy anytime her big sis is around!   


2- Spartanburg- Mickey had an errand that he wanted to run in Spartanburg and since Pizza Inn was on the way we all decided to go with him.  Nothing better than Chocolate Chip Pizza with the family! (No, we didn’t eat an entire pizza even though I think I could! ha)

3- Snuggles- After we came back from Spartanburg, Lydia and I snuggled in for an afternoon nap.  Let me just say… it was just what I needed! 


3- Swinging- Lydia loves to swing!  This was how I found her after leaving the room for just a few minutes!  She was so proud of herself and was laughing at her newfound position.  I was proud that I had remembered to buckle her in. 


4-Sandwiches- Believe it or not I actually cooked supper tonight!  I’m not sure if you have heard of The Crockpot Girls, but they have a page on Facebook that has gone viral in the past few weeks.  The recipes are quick, simple, and delicious.  I love using my crockpot and will be using it a lot more in the next few weeks and months.  Anyway, today I made the Roast Beef. Sandwiches. 


The recipe is so simple:


  • chuck roast
  • can of Beef Broth
  • packet of Beefy Onion Soup Mix


  1. Place the roast in the crockpot.
  2. Sprinkle the meat with the Beefy Onion Soup Mix.
  3. Pour in the Beef Broth.
  4. Cook on Low for 7 hours.
  5. Shred and Enjoy.

* I topped our sandwiches with Provolone cheese and melted it in the oven.  Mickey ate his as an open-faced sandwich, but I made a regular sandwich.  Next time, however, I will use a crustier bread because with all the juice I ended up having to eat it with a fork! Either way it was delicious!

5- Cereal- Tonight we decided to give Lydia her first taste of cereal.   I will do another post with more pics, but here is one of my favorites.  The look on her face is priceless.  She wasn’t quite sure what to think of something other than mommy’s milk, but she obliged and ate a few bites. 


6- Shakes- After supper we headed out to get milkshakes.  Mickey loves ice-cream, and always drinks every last drop! While I’m not much of an ice-cream lover, I love an Oreo milkshake and will jump at the chance to enjoy one with my family any chance I get.  


And I can’t end this post without including this picture of Lydia giving her big sis a great big Smooch!!!  Be still my heart…..
