Successful Week!!!

I am very proud of myself if I do say so myself. I cooked Monday-Thursday night this week. 3 out of 4 dishes were brand new. The Turkey Fiesta Pie was probably my favorite new dish. It is the simplest thing I've ever made and was delicious. Thursday night i did have to change my dinner plans because I forgot to put the chicken in the crockpot so I made chicken parmesan with egg noodles, green beans, and garlic toast. Next week's menu has already been planned and will be posted shortly.

I registered Kalli for kindergarten on Wednesday. I was thinking it would be somewhat of a sad time but no. The kids were acting like caged animals let out for the first time so I was in and out as quickly as possible. So much for happy thoughts. We did find out Kalli's teacher's name...Ms. Soderlind. Unfortunately I do not know anything about her but we will meet her on the 15th of August. I truly can't believe I am about to venture into the "school-aged children" category but I am very excited.

Weekend In Atlanta

This past weekend Doug's business had it's first out of town adventure. For Doug and Greg it was work. For Brittany and was very much play. Kalli and Kole spent the weekend with Nanna and PopPop. They had a wonderful time. Brittany and I shopped, ate, and hung out by the pool. On Thursday evening we went to see a play called, "The Color Purple" at Fox Theater. It was AMAZING! The performance, the atmosphere, everthing was great. Even better than that was the fact that we got handed free $50 tickets right before we purchased tickets. Thank you Lord!! On Sunday we attended Buckhead Church. I absolutely love that place.

So now I'm back and refreshed. Kalli has been such a sweetheart since I got home. Kole is 2. That's all I have to say about that. I did learn that 4 days is my limit for being away from the kiddies. I missed them like crazy. So today was back to work, back to reality.
