It's been a long long long long long week here at our house.  And the sad thing is that the next few weeks I think aren't gonna be much better!!!!  We have had doctor appointments for one thing or another EVERY day this week.  Along with yesterday I had a Scentsy booth at a local festival here in town & today I had a table at Type A Mom Conference.

We are at the start of a new ventures.....and new people to meet!!!  As much as I am glad this last week is behind me......I'm ready to see what new things this week holds for us!!!  I KNOW the Lord has blessed me & continues to bless me every day & for that I am thankful!!!  That is the one thing I can take away from this last week!!!!!!

For by grace you have been saved through faith. And this is not your own doing; it is the gift of God, not a result of works, so that no one may boast.

SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO I found this Tip Nut Website on line.........and guess what

you can freeze milk!!!  So this morning when the me & the Horse ran out for a few minutes we got a half gallon & put it in the freezer!!!! 

ANNNDDDDDD Hoss got his FIRST taste of chicken livers last night & LOVED them!!!  Seriously I don't think he even chewed them up he was so excited about them........the tip website also has this receipe for chicken liver treats on it......

Get our tan on

Really I gotta tell you.....Hoss has to get his tan on when he is outside!!!  It's the funniest thing you have EVER seen!!!!  Our front yard in the morning gets some good sunshine.....I put him outside this morning and looked out......he was passed out down by the creek.  I looked out in about a hour or so later and the sun had moved......

and there was no Hoss.  I looked around in the yard & the goof had moved to where the sunshine is!!!!!!  Sunning himself......see he is such a goof!!!!!!

Handy Man

I need a handy man to stop by my office.  The little lip thingy on my desk is coming off!!!!  The tools my handy man needs are some screws ohhhh about 2 inches long & a star screwdriver.

I swear that's what I call the Phillips Head Screwdriver.....a Star Screwdriver.  Hubby laughs at me all the time when I ask for the star screwdriver......see when I was little Phillips Head just never made sense to me.  Why in the world would you call a screwdriver that looks like a star a Phillips Head???  What was the person smoking that named it?  Star just makes more sense & that's what I'm sticking to!!!!

Ohhhhh back to the handy man.......if he comes by & fixxes my broken lip thingy I'll make some brownies for him I PROMISE!!!!  Homemade or Mint...whichever he wants!!!!!


This my friends is what I have looked at ALL day today!!!!!  2 computer screens & lots of trees (paperwork) that are on my desk here at work.

I do need to add one side note......PLEASE don't think I have drunk both a Chickfila large drink, that red solo cup full & a Dr Pepper prior to this picture being taken.  The Chickfila drink was from yesterday am & I filled it with water yesterday afternoon & drunk it.  The solo cup was from this morning's oj PROMISE!!!  And I seriously have no earthly idea who in the world put that darn Dr Pepper bottle rude of someone to drink a Dr Pepper & leave it on my desk!!!!! LOL!!!!! ;)

1 1/2 c. flour

2 c. sugar

1 tsp. salt

1 c. shortening

4 eggs

2 tsp. vanilla

Mix all ingredients with electric mixer. Pour into greased 9" x 13" pan. Bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes.   After they cooled I put some chocolate frosting in the microwave for about 30-45 seconds until it melted & then poured it over the brownies!!!
