Happy First Day of Summer!

Happy First Day of Summer!

Happy First Day of Summer! This PERFECTLY depicts just how HOT it currently is here in Louisiana, Haha! Y’all I honestly thought that Summer started here weeks ago. The temperatures have BOILING hot and it is impossible to even attempt to take on any outdoor activities between the hours of 9:00 am-6:00 pm. That is, unless you want to MELT! ๐Ÿ˜‰

And if y’all don’t believe me as to just how hot it is here, this is PROOF…Continue reading

5 Things: Our Father’s Day… The Good, The Bad, and The Funny

5 Things: Our Father’s Day… The Good, The Bad, and The Funny

Hi Friends and Happy Father’s Day to all of our daddies and daddies-to-be! We have had a wonderful day showering Patrick with love, and now that we are home and he is taking a little evening Father’s Day nap, I decided to sneak on here and write a little post for all of you about the ADVENTUROUS day that we have had. So here it goes…

5 Things: Our Father’s Day… The Good, The Bad, and The Funny:

1. So, here is how our morning began…. Well, I should really give y’all a little backstory first. I was FORCED BEYOND MY WILL to take a HUGE portion of cake home from the baby shower yesterday. And not just ANY section of cake, it was more like the entire side which had an ENORMOUS amount of LUSCIOUS FROSTING. Which I usually do not complain about free cake, but this cake was DANGEROUS y’all!

It was a fabulous, homemade, incredibly moist, creamy, rich, buttery, melt in your mouth, almond flavored cake…. And it tasted exactly like Wedding Cake. And here’s the problem, Wedding Cake is my one weakness! It is my favorite and I lose all of my senses and become completely clutched in its grasp while in its presence. Well, on my way home yesterday evening, I tried my very best to get rid of it all. I dropped some off to my grandparents, and then brought the rest to the boys. I left it on the counter hoping they would devour every last morsel.

But when I woke up this morning and headed into the kitchen, there it was… just STARING at me! One glorious piece of cake left. It was as if Jesus had saved it just for me! I tried to resist at first, but as I walked past to retrieve the coffee creamer from the fridge, I got one heavenly sniff and immediately fell into its evil clutches. I had no other choice but to gobble it up at once. Plus, you know that I am an adult, and it IS technically okay for me to eat cake for breakfast… And that is EXACTLY what I did.

Louisiana Saturday Night!

Louisiana Saturday Night!

It’s a Louisiana Saturday Night over here, Y’all! And tonight we are cooking some Eggplant Parmesan (MY FAV!) with some fresh eggplants just picked from the garden!

They will go well with the 500 lbs of pasta I accidentally cooked earlier. HEHE! ๐Ÿ˜‰

Every. Single. Time.

Am I the ONLY one who does this? I always cook enough pasta to feed approximately 125 people and I DON’T KNOW WHY! Maybe it’s just my Italian roots coming to the surface. ๐Ÿ™‚

What’s on the menu in your home tonight?

5 Things: We Welcome You To The Lollipop Guild…

1. So, let me start off by telling y’all that we have not been to the gym in FOREVER! At least 8 or 9 months. Basically since Patrick’s health issues began last August. But since we finally have his heart rhythm under control, his doctors have released him to start working out again. Until now, he was only released to work… and that was it! So, sitting at home during this time period has caused us to really undo all of the hard work that we put in at the gym throughout the years prior. And with all of the added stress… the pounds decided to make themselves at home… on our bodies! The struggle has been REAL my friends. Especially considering that this is what my heart keeps telling me to do…Continue reading

Happy April Fool’s Day!

Happy April Fool’s Day!

Sounds like a PLAN to us! We have NEVER been good at the whole April Fool’s thing. Either our pranks were TOO LAME, and never fooled anyone, or else we thought that our ideas were TOO MEAN to try on anyone. The most successful trick I have played all day was jumping out and scaring 2 of our 4 kiddos. I am still working on the 3rd, and will not stop trying until I have accomplished doing so for the day. Although, I love scaring people, and do this ALL of the time, so I am not sure if it really constitutes as a real “April Fool’s Prank.”

Have any of you ever gotten away with a successful April Fool’s prank? If so, tell us all about it in the comments section below. Maybe we could try it out next year.ย Happy April Fool’s Day, Y’all!

Record Flooding Here In Louisiana

Record Flooding Here In Louisiana

For those of you who may not know, we are currently experiencing record flooding here in Louisiana. This weather has been some of the worst that we have seen in our parts in quite some time.

But since we have been so busy going back and forth to the hospital this past week with Patrick, I never even paid attention to some important little things around the house that I really should have in order to prepare for this weather….

Guilty As Charged!

Guilty As Charged!

Guilty as charged!

I cannot, I repeat… CANNOT, hold my laughter in. It is physically and emotionally impossible for me to do so. And it seems to be even worse at times that I am especially NOT SUPPOSED TO LAUGH.

My strength on this matter was tested twice last week when a family member tripped and fell in my yard, and then an acquaintance was telling me about a story where they got hurt…. but in the most hilarious, unimaginable way. I know. I know… all of you think I am absolutely horrible, but I CANNOT help it. And I did ask if they were okay. That is… after I pulled myself together and finished laughing. ๐Ÿ˜‰

At least I feel a little better about my situation after one of our clients revealed to me a few days ago that she and her daughter laugh at funerals. No judging here! I am now nervous I will do the same at the next funeral I attend.

Do any of you have this problem? Or is it just a crazy select few? ME INCLUDED!
