We survived!

I've nicknamed my daughter the "Dancing Queen"!! She attended her first homecoming dance Saturday night and danced for 3 hours straight! The next day she said her calves were sore from jumping so much . . . ahh, I remember those days!! I chaperoned and served drinks to sweaty thirsty kids. You could always tell when the DJ was playing a bad song or a slow song because we'd be bombarded with the kids then. I don't even think she minded that her Mom was there- ha!!

Pumpkin pickin' time!!

Fun fun weekend in store for the family!! Tonight we'll be at my daughter's high school for Friday night football!! Just wish the team was alittle better, but oh well. It is fun watching the teenagers - none of them watch the game because they are so busy socializing!!

Tomorrow we're headed to the Berry Farm for a hayride and pumpkin picking. Everyone gets to pick a pumpkin and then Sunday we'll carve them. Hubby called just a bit ago and gave me the Saturday afternoon college football line up - South Carolina v. Alabama at 3:30 and then Florida v. LSU at night. He is so lucky I love football just as much as he does!! Daughter has a babysitting gig so she's excited to get some cash in her hands.

Sunday is pumpkin carvin' day and NFL football - go Skins!!! I'm trying 3 new recipes this weekend so the house should smell really yummy - one is a spaghetti sauce that simmers all day and another is a macaroni & cheese in the crockpot (a/k/a heart attack in a crock pot if you saw the ingredients!). I may even have to throw in a Starbucks pumpkin spice latte somewhere in here.

Have a wonderful Fall (even though it will be in the 80s here) weekend!!!

It's hard being a Mom

How do you handle when you feelings have been hurt by your daughter, but you really don't want your daughter to know she's unintentionally hurt your feelings?? Her first homecoming dance is coming up. Her dad and I are divorced and it falls on a weekend she is with him. I guess I assumed - and shame on me for doing that - that she would want to come home to get ready for the dance. I made her a hair appt. and thought after that I'd bring her home and help her with her makeup and getting dressed. Wrongo. She told me that after her hair appt. she'll just go back to her Dad's and her Nana will be there if she needs any last minute help with the dress. So now my only involvement with my daugther's first homecoming dance is reduced to taking pictures. This stinks.

Meet Me On Monday

1. What is the best dish you can make?
Hmm, that's a tough one. It probably depends on which kid you ask - Jessica would say my macaroni & cheese and Noah would say my pineapple cranberry salad!

2. How often do you change your sheets? Every Sunday

3. What is the longest car trip you have ever taken? College Spring Break to Key West. I HATE being in the car for a long time.

4. What is your favorite fruit? Strawberries - especially covered in chocolate!!

5. Would you rather have breakfast for dinner or dinner for breakfast? Breakfast for dinner. I'd probably fix it alot more than I do but hubby doesn't care for it that much.

Have a sparkly week!!
