You know if we could make mirrors that make you look like Jennifer Aniston or someone like that we could all retire. Maybe if we served a few glasses of wine before people try on the suits

Glynis I don't know how yoy do it. I have trouble with just one child.

I went to the book store today and picked up Julie and Julia I couldn't wait for the waitlist at the library.

Oh, I loved Julie and Julia! It was a great book! I'm really looking forward to the movie! A friend of mine worked on the costumes for the Meryl Streep portions of the movie. I can't wait to see it!

Hello all.

Gretchen- for your father and for Hailey. My DN used to do thing like that all the time, but with her she would go to use the bathroom and come out nude.

Just had chicken strips and mac and cheese for dinner tonight. I really need to get back in to better cooking. Going to have some grilled chicken for dinner tomorrow night with corn and some other vegetable.

Why get all excited about something as silly as a fake celebrity? Or getting a tag?

Thanks for the tips! I didn't end up making it tonight, so I'll have to freeze my shrimp and make it later this week.


We had pancakes and bacon for dinner. I threw blueberries in mine, DH likes them plain He decided at 645pm to mow the lawn. So, by the time he finished it was after 8pm and I didn't want to mess with the grill so I went with easy!

Anyone heard from Lindsay in awhile? I wondered how her MIL is doing.

BBL...gotta get some stuff done...Mom comes tomorrow and I go to see cutie David Cook!
Camp! I was one of those kids who never got to go to camp so I always get excited for the lucky ones! Good thing it looked good, that is completely a Mom benefit, as Gretchen said.

The scampi was really good but I don't think Buddy liked it. He knew better than to complain after whining that there was not cooking on Saturday and that he had to go to his favorite grinder shop in the whole world but I don't think he ever got over the chicken piccata fiasco

It hit the spot, and that's about all I have to say about it.

I'm hoping to do better this next week. I do have 2 barbecues this week, one on Thursday and one on Friday. Then, we pack up the family and the tent/trailer, and leave for a week long family reunion. I'm not sure what the meal plans will be while there, but it will involve a traveling smoker and a night of fish.
I love KFC! I am totally addicted to fast food, I love it! I am one of those folks who need to not have it because it is worse than chocolate for me. Kady will share two french Fries with me, I woul deat them all and order more if I had my way!

It sounds like you have a great week planned!

The sun is out today Add that to Nola pounding away at one of the butterflies that are supposed to go on her little pool and I am Rattles and squealling make me happy!

My sister is supposed to come for lunch today to go over what I came up with for her Disney trip in September. I hope that she still comes by, she had to bring her little Daisy to the vet and I don't think she made it. She lost Riley last week so it is a rough time for her. Daisy is almost 19 and Riley was around 13 so they are longtime friends

It is STILL raining that much up there? I saw that parts of Philly were flooding from all the rain.

I'm not the only fast food addict on this board! I LOVE fast food too. It's like comfort food to me...I'd rather eat at *some* fast food places than some fancy schmancy place - I'm not comfortable at those places. KFC is good, but other chicken places are better (at least around here)....I like KFC's biscuits....hmmmm now I want one.

I think today is the last Monday that McDonald's is giving out free mochas. I don't know if this is a local thing or not.

I saw that note on FB about the other message board too. I wonder how it's going for her.

Yay for the sun! And for your friend.

Bethany- I forgot about the Mocha Mondays! Marisa told me and I was planning to go one day.

We did not break the all time record for wet July's that was set in 1938. It was off by some minuscule amount but that measurement was taken at Bradley. If the measurement was up here over the mountain I believe it would have sent that record crashing. 3 inches here the other day.

We have a nice week forecast, I hope it happens. It is too late for a lot of our area farmers, the rain has ruined their crops. Tomatoes are not doing well, they are rotting on the vines. Potatoes have a nasty virus and that spread to other crops.

We had to have the insurance man come and give us permission to harrow our plants under. He is a corn guy in Mass, he told us that the corn is okay but that because of the market folks are picking it too young before the flavor is developed. He also said that there are four viruses going around that are attacking plants, ours included, and he thinks that they are all weather related.

Buddy harrowed our field under in Saturday. This is the second year we lose a crop. I never thought that I would see the day that I was grateful to put a plant out of it's misery but I reached that point. We visited farmers and they look like they are 110 years old this year. I don;t think that Buddy has really processed it yet, he was lost yesterday, this is when we are usually gearing up to take this crop in.

You know, maybe you are onto something. I couldn't invent anything like that kind of mirror, but I bet if we served lots of wine, we could sell the heck out of some bathing suits.

Hailey does sort of the reverse of that. She is still at the stage where she doesn't want to quit what she is doing to go to the bathroom, so she when she makes a run for it, she is always mooning everyone on the way. We're working on that since it's sort of ok now, but I don't think it will be nearly as cute when she's 16.

Aimee, I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE pancakes. With blueberries - well, even better. But that is one of the things I just cannot cook. I have yet to make a pancake that was edible. That is why IHOP is one of my guilty pleasures. Not that I can convince Kenny to go but once every couple of years.

I love those happy baby noises too! It's a shame you can't slow time down and keep her small, those days go by so fast.

I'm so sorry for your sister losing her furbabies. And bless her heart, losing one right after the other.


Today is Patrick's 14th birthday! He survived another year without us killing him so in celebration we are having ice cream cake after dinner. I'm making chicken pilau which is one of his favorites and he doesn't have to eat any of the lima beans since he is the birthday boy. Tomorrow though, all bets are off.

Hi Girls,

It is so nice to see the sunshine.

I will be back later today to catch up. I am going to do some errands and then swing by my parents house to take out the trash cans for Dad.

WFD- lamb chops, baked sweet potatoes, and corn on the cob.

Nancy -- Enjoy your day with happy little Nola! I thought of you and Buddy the other day because there was an article in the paper about all the problems farmers are dealing with this year. Late blight is affecting tomatoes and potatoes here. I'm sorry you lost your crop. I hope your sister does come to visit. There is nothing like Disney planning to cheer a person up. Oh, and your scallop dish really sounded good.

Gretchen -- Happy Birthday to Patrick!

Lauren -- I'm glad the camp looked so nice. Liam would probably love to do that some year. I'm not ready for sleep-away camp yet though. I don't think he is either.

This week, Liam is doing gymnastics camp. I think dinner is going to be pasta fresca. Liam has been asking for pasta for a week.

Happy birthday, Patrick!



Today is our anniversary so we're going to Texas de Brazil for dinner. Let's hope I can eat some of that meat!

Hey y'all!

Sorry I didn't post this weekend! I didn't get to tell Maria Bon Voyage!

Saturday was a blah day, I wasn't feeling great, probably from overdoing it on Friday. Yesterday I made it to church & out to lunch with the family. I was happy to be out & get to see all my girls, Alexis, Angelina & Chris. Although lunch was a fiasco, we ended up at Chili's because we couldn't make a decision. We had awful service but it was still good to be out.

I'm drooling over all the beautiful food pics! Becky & Laura's on our last thread!

Nancy's here!

You have had me cracking up ! I can just picture Hailey standing there in all her glory!

Happy Birthday to Patrick. I doubt he realizes just how lucky he is to have made it to 14!

I did finally cook something this weekend. Blueberry pancake cravings must have been going around. Bob was quite happy.


Nancy, That scampi looked so good! I might do that for dinner, I have some frozen scallops in the freezer. I'm so glad you get to have Nola at this age, it's a blessing to get to see them doing new things every day.

Glynis, Darn I had the Julie & Julia book in my hand during my pre-surgery book shopping and I put it back! I don't know why I did that!

Lauren, I'm glad Andrew's camp looks so nice. I think that is a good price. Chris is paying that much for 2 weeks of day camp. 9-3 everday, no food included!

We've been having lots of rain down here, but I do see sun out there today.

I do think Vicki probably meant POOL BOY! but with our Dear Scottish friend & her slang who knows! Maybe we are really missing out on something!

I did see on FB that Lindsay started her own WFD website.

I forgot to say that I'm continuing to pray for:

Gretchen's Dad, Lauri's MIL, Kathy's SisIL and all our guys in the military
