We're going on vacation!

We've been planning a trip for quite some time now, and I cannot believe it is here!!

In the past few days, as we have been trying to get our stuff together, I've learned a few things.

1...I am borderline neurotic when it comes to packing. Wes has been making fun of me because I have an Excel Spreadsheet a list, with everything we need typed out. And sometimes more than once...better safe than sorry!!

2...Wes actually CAN pack for himself. He's always been lucky enough for me to do the majority of his packing for him, but I've been busy. I wonder if he feels lucky that he got to choose his own clothes this time?

3...It is WAY harder to travel with a baby!! One little bitty baby needs LOTS of stuff. Why do we need a suitcase and three carry-ons to haul all of the things an 8 month old needs??? Seems kind of crazy, huh?

Well, I can't wait to be in the air and headed to a cooler climate (hopefully). I'll put together a great big update when we get back, but I'll most likely throw up a mini-post or two. :)

Menu Monday

One of my dear friends Becky does a post on her blog every Monday listing her menu for the week. Every Monday I read the delicious meals that she has planned for the week and I cross my fingers hoping that she posts the recipes. :)

As for me, since the baby came along, menus rarely get planned, and if they do, is usually something I am ashamed to admit. We've gotten really comfortable with Stouffer's casserole and chicken nuggets.

But, thanks to Pinterest, it is a lot easier to find new recipes.

Drum roll please.......this week We Have a Menu!! And I think I may start posting each week. So, hope my menu can inspire someone else this week. :)

Monday - Pork Chops, Creamy Fried Confetti Corn and fresh green beans.
Tuesday - Salsa Ranch Chicken Wraps with Rice
Wednesday - Bowtie Lasagna with salads
Thursday - Frozen Pizza
Friday - Crock Pot Beef Stroganoff with salads


We've been busy!

I can't say that the things we've been busy doing should have kept me from blogging this long, but hey...what can you do?

We've been swimming A LOT!

A second tooth came in. :)

Addie turned 8 months old!

We met our sweet friend, Stephanie Fisher, for an 8 month photoshoot at the Birmingham Botanical Gardens.

See, like I said...reeeeaaaal busy!

We've spent time with friends, with family and each other. I'd say it doesn't get better, but every time I do say that, it does.
