Keeping Busy

cid_10CD1819-6AF2-4584-834C-74E0134.gifI can't believe how busy I have been. I haven't done an entry in 2 weeks. I have been cooking so much anioven.gifand using my new Food Saver I got for Christmas. The last 2 weeks I have made tons of meatballs and sauce, 10 hamburgers with green peppers and onions in them, sloppy joes, salmon, orange roughy. I also made about 3 dozen breakfast burritos. They really aren't the size of burritos because I use corn tortillas and fill them with scrambled eggs, egg34.gif

crumbled bacon, peppers and onions. I freeze 2 in a bag and pop them in the microwave. I forgot to say they I have been trying to eat  Blinkie11.gif.

My daughter and I have been going to the mall every weekend. We went to American Eagle and I bought her a shirt and pj bottoms. We also went to Aeropostale and got a spaghetti strap baby blue shirt that she likes to wear under her shirts for only $1.97. I couldn't believe it. She wanted white but they only had blue. We decided to go to TGIFridays and I got this wonderful Santa Fe Chicken Salad.     div286.gif                      It was so spicy but good.  My daughter had chicken fingers and fries and said they were the best she has ever had. When we finished lunch we were going to go see Pursuit of Happiness and were standing in line and she said lets just go see it tomorrow. We didn't go today because she slept by her friend's house and I wanted to watch the Bears football game. We won. Yes!

I love my new scanner. I am having so much fun scanning pictures. Here is one of me and hubby at a wedding. detjeandjohnatwedding.jpg Here is another one at a restaurant in our old neighborhood. johnanddetjeatrestaurant2001.jpg

We have been having some wonderful weather up until last night. We had a little ice storm. They are calling for a few inches of snow tonight. I don't mind as long as it is a few inches of snow. I let my dog Bambi bambi1-6-07005.jpgout on the back deck and he started out running and flew off the deck because it was so icy. I wish I had my camera. Dog flying. LOL

I am having such a wonderful time learning how to scrapbook. I am reading a book right now about it called Scrapbook Workshop. I think I got it about 5 years ago with a disc to download on computer. I bought a basket of stuff for my daughter with scrapbooking stuff but it looks like I am going to use it instead of her. There were 2 albums in the basket so I told her to use the small album and I will use the big one. cid_027001c5635a27f3e930d31298d0Gal.gifI am not sure where I got this picture. My memory seems to be going with old age. SeniorMoment.gif


I am trying to eat more brain food for my memory. LOL ws-41.gif

Well, I am going to finish watching Brothers and Sister. I love that show.

I bought a Food Saver a couple of years ago.  Everyone told me how stupid they were.  I LOVE mine !!! It really does a great job so there's virtually nothing thrown away....especially great for cheeses !!!  No more green cheese :)

Im glad your back, I missed your entries!  I loved your pics of you and  hubby, and Bambi has gotten cuter if possible.  You sure are busy, you are great at preparing food for the week I am so bad I can hardly plan whats for dinner.  Good job on eating healthy.  Scrapbooking can be fun, I bought tons of supplies and computer cd's and did like 4 pages and havent touched it since.  I have a good program for scrapbooking send me an email if you would like me to mail you a copy.

Glad to have you back! It was fun to see pictures of you & hubby and I think Bambi is getting more cute with every picture you take. I know what you mean about the ice...Molly slid off our deck, too! :)  Stay warm!

Pooh Hugs,

i saw that you are a part of Vickys weight loss journal so i asked her for your link. I have a private journal if you'd like to get to know me. If not, we can learn about each other thru her journal. I am also on a "diet" or change of lifestyle. I wish you the best of luck!

It's really good to hear from you again!  Mike, Hailey & I watched "Little Miss SUnshine a few days ago. I loved it. But, like you said, the swearing made me uncomfortable watching with Hailey - but I LOVED the end when the little girl did the dance... I was laughing so hard & I thought the movie had a great message.

We also went to see pursuit of happiness. It was so great, you will love it. It's a great movie to see with your daughter.

Loved the pics of you & your hubby & your cute little dog!
