Hello 2013!

2 Jan

Have you started off your 2013 on the right foot.  I’m still not used to writing 13 on everything…I’m not really sure if I like it.  However, I’m not going to look at the 13 as bad luck, it’s going to be a good year!

School News

We have a three-day week, so I’m already off.  I thought today was Monday pretty much all day.  The kids were pretty decent, some complaining about how they wished they were still in bed.  Me too kid, me too.



Some gems that were overheard today:

“My dad gets so many phone calls!  He’s so busy.  He gets like ten phone calls a day!”

After letting one of my students eat a gingerbread man

S – “I think he’s trying to kill me!” (while holding her throat and screaming) 

MG- “Nope, I’m pretty sure you just need some water…”


I’m making White Turkey Chili tonight for dinner.  The recipe is for White Chicken Chili, but I figured turkey would be a good substitute.  I’ll let y’all know how it turns out.  It smells amazing so far!

I hope your 2013 is off to a great start!


Thanksgiving Part 2

23 Nov

I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving. I know I did!

Thanksgiving started with my brother and I running in the Charlotte Turkey Trot 8K. We finished in 57 minutes, not too shabby. Also, Jimmie Johnson was running in the race right in front of us, craziness!

Next on the list is to watch the Lions play football. Now, as a Lions fan, I don’t expect much. This game was just ridiculous. I think my heart stopped like 5 times. If you want to read about it, the freep had a pretty good article summing up the insanity of the game.


After burning off many calories due to stress, it was time to eat!

Starting at the top: stuffing, mac n cheese, sweet potato bread, brussel sprouts with cranberry, and sweet potato casserole. We also had turkey (of course), cranberry relish, and crescent rolls. Definitely not enough food for four people.

Andrew doesn’t have a dishwasher, but who needs one!

Notice how I am not in the picture. Whoops!

Thanksgiving day was ended the only appropriate way I know…by watching Channing Tatum try to convince Rachel McAdams to be his wife.


For some reason this has been a Channing Tatum weekend. On Friday we watched 21 Jump Street…dumbest movie ever, but can help but laugh. I think it was rounded out well by watching the Muppet Movie beforehand.

It was a great Thanksgiving Day and I am so happy to have spent it with my family!

Oh yes, there’s food…

18 Mar

Just in case you thought St. Patty’s Day was all about green and Elvis…

It’s not….

That would be corned beef with sauerkraut and Leanne’s Guinness.  Yumminess!  Leanne cooked the corned beef in a crock pot basically all day in Guinness, carrots, and green onions.  The sauerkraut is the same recipe as used here.

What did you have for St. Patty’s Day?

Happy New Year!

31 Dec

Happy New Year blog world.  I plan on doing some eating, movie watching and ushering in the New Year with a glass or two of some bubbly!

Just remember people, don’t over indulge.  I don’t want to hear about y’all on the news tomorrow morning!  Be safe!
