I realized that I've had my crockpot for a year and a half and hadn't used it once! So I dug through the internet and some recipes that I have and made Hashbrown Casserole on Friday! I had a good friend of mine, Shannon, and her daughter over for supper. They loved it! I thought it needed some sausage or some more flavor. Her 18 month old daughter couldn't eat fast enough! :)
Then I broke it out Saturday to make some mac-n-cheese! Ali and Chris had a BBQ to celebrate Jayden's arrival. Which is a great idea so that people can come see him at once and she doesn't have to worry about people coming to see them at random times A.K.A. during mommy's nap time. The mac-n-cheese was really good! I LOVE home-made mac-n-cheese! My grandma makes the best, but this is a deserving second place. I also made 1-2-3's and those are always a hit! Everyone loves those! Even Mr. "I'm on a diet"
It's been rainy and stormy this week and it's still stormy. It's a perfect day to get some dusting and vacuuming done! I didn't know Jeremy got so behind on dusting ;)
Jeremy has the camera in Virginia, so I'm not doing Thoughtless Thursday for right now.. It'll be back soon though :)
Nothing exciting lately. I don't think I mentioned this before, but our friend Ali had her baby last Friday! June 11 at 3:59 Mr. Jayden Troy LeVan was born!! He's so cute! He's going to be a ladies man! It's been a week now and he has changed their life so much and he is such a blessing.
She had a perfect labor and a healthy baby and it makes me want one even more! Her water broke around 1:30 and he was here by 4! She didn't even have time to accept or turn down the epidural.
So tonight they are having a BBQ so everyone can meet him! Of course I've already met him! I went to the hospital and I've checked up on mommy and baby at home, while daddy was at work!
My good friend Shannon and her daughter Kenzie came over last night! We watched a movie and had a little slumber party! It was fun. WallE likes Kenzie.. she is 18 months old and so she gives him food, so why wouldn't he love her? Shannon watched WallE when we went to Kansas City a couple months ago and she said they switched food. WallE was eating her cereal and she was eating his dog food! :O Until Shannon saw it and she switched the food back LOL
Jeremy is headed to Virginia beach today! LUCKY!! I want to be there so bad. It's a dreary day here.
Work is still going great! I'm catching on pretty quickly! Needless to say by Friday I have a headache because my brain needs a break! So I'm enjoying my weekend.
I hope all of our wonderful family is having a good summer so far!! We love you all!!
We had a really great time on vacation! Most people wouldn't call going to Kansas for a week a vacation, but we do!
A week is a whole lot better than a couple days! We did get to see all of our family, which is what I was hoping for! We also saw all of our close friends! We would have loved to spent more time with everyone but there is so many of you that we couldn't possibly!
WallE slept from the moment we got in the car to go home until Tuesday morning! And I'm not kidding! He was SOO tired! I didn't mind though, because I had laundry to do and did some all the packing for Jeremy! Okay okay.. he did pack his own uniforms! :P
Since we've been back a lot has gone on! He left Monday morning for Virginia. If you know Jeremy you know he is being a social bug and not just sitting in his hotel room! So he's having fun, I think! He has spent a lot of time in the hot tub, too! He loves hot tubs!
After I dropped him off I headed straight to the dentist. I got a filling and he filled and shaved down a sharp edge on the next tooth that we are going to work on. Well that really irritated it!! I was in some pain on Tuesday then I didn't get any sleep that night because I was in so much pain! It was awful! So he squeezed me in and fixed it. I do have to get a root canal on that one (yes, that'll be my second root canal in a month). I'm just looking for the right time. I had one scheduled for the 22nd but that is a "surgery week" at my NEW JOB *bells* *chimes* whistles* *hollering* and so it'll be impossible to take off work! But I'll get in! No worrying! :)
So yes, I have a new job!! I work at Eye Specialists office! It's kinda weird.. (the title). There are 5 total doctors. One of them is part time [every other week] and the other 4 are full time. The part time doctor is our only surgeon, so when he is there we are very very busy! My first week there is a surgery week, so I'm anxious to see how it goes next week LOL But I like it there. The girl that's training me, Natalie, she is really cool and very helpful. Unfortunately she'll be gone at the beginning of July!! EEK! But that's okay, we'll manage... I hope! :)
