ten on tuesday.

1. Thanks to Samantha our house has officially gone Rainbow Loom crazy. If you know a crafty child you will be considered an absolute hero if you score one of these for them. (Parmy: don’t buy one for Lily. See you Friday.)

2. For our supper club last weekend I made the Caramel Apple Blondie Pie from the cover of this month’s Southern Living magazine. Not only was it delish but it was one of the only things I’ve ever made that looked exactly like the picture. Score!

3. After a months-long Craigslist dry spell I bought a child-sized set of white wicker furniture today. It felt good to get back in the game. 😉

4. I’ve been stalking Craigslist again because Brent’s parents have recently gifted us their family beach house. (Talk about awesome in-laws!) Lots more about that later. But for now suffice it to say that I have another house to furnish on a shoe-string budget. Thankfully I have experience in that department!

5. On Sunday night the kids somehow got on the topic of what meals they’ll ask me to make when they come home and visit from College. Weird? Anyway, Sarah said “stuffed peppers” without missing a beat. So I made them last night. It’s super simple and it goes like this: Cook 1 cup dry rice in 2 cups chicken broth (I do this 99% of the time instead of using water), brown 1/2 lb of sausage and mix with the rice along with a can of diced tomatoes. Cut your peppers in half and scoop the rice mixture into each “bowl”. This recipe could easily make 8 pepper halves. Place the pepper halves in a baking dish with about 1/2 inch of water in the bottom. Seal with foil and bake at 400 for 40 minutes. Remove the foil, sprinkle a bit of parmesan cheese and bake for 15 more minutes. YUM!

6. Brent and I have moved to a cash allowance system for frivolous purchases (see #4 for why). School has been back in session now for almost two weeks and I haven’t been to Starbucks at all and I’ve only eaten lunch at Lyn’s once. I hardly know who I am anymore. Will be at Lyn’s on Thursday though so all will feel right in my world again. 😉

7. My sister’s Facebook status tonight: “Can we all just reflect for a minute on how stupid we were at 20 and how much we thought we knew about…everything? Now imagine that self subjected to public scrutiny and mass judgement…awesome, right?”

I’d say that just about sums it up. And once again makes me so happy social media wasn’t a thing when I was young and dumb.

8. Of course now I’m just middle-aged and dumb…;)

9. We’re coming up on our six year anniversary of moving into this house (September 1). I’ve never lived that long in one place and this wandering spirit is getting restless. I love my house, love my neighbors, love my neighborhood…what is wrong with me?!

10. Happy week friends!

May I point out that you are at least 10 years from being middle aged?! 😉

and I am sure that you will let your “friends” use that beach house that you have been gifted

Can’t wait to hear more about the beach house! Do share!

I say that assuming your siste is referencing Miley Cyrus’ performance at the VMA’s earlier this week….

Juli, I have read that and I couldn’t agree with it more!

ReneeAugust 31, 2013 - 2:57 pm

We’re rainbow loom obsessed too! I’m on board with anything that keeps them away from the ipads for the afternoon. It’s all good.

We’ve been doing the cash allowance system too, and I have a love/hate relationship with it. But I got an awesome new wallet that makes it seem cooler. Have you seen these? Love love love. Check it. http://www.etsy.com/shop/ATime4Everything
