Life Happenings & Tummy Grumblings

Before we get started on my silly life/food post, I just wanted to say that today is a day to remember. Remember those who have lost their lives and those who are still fighting - these guys and gals above are Charlie Co and it's safe to say they are constantly on my mind! My hubby is the one cheesing in the middle of the top row :)

My week has been kind of nuts.
 Tuesday was our monthly FRG meeting - I was happy to see my friends :)

But I was not happy that a storm hit in just a huge wall. I ended up getting home and being completely soaked to the bone. I hate Tstorms and it makes me so terrified to drive through them.

Wednesday was easily my most stressful. I went to leave to take Matthew to school and my car didn't start at all. Everything inside was dead. I discovered my battery terminal had cracked and it wasn't tightened enough to get that charge. Nick wasn't online yet because he was really busy and so I called my mom-in-law asking what to do, because I had no clue. I was just freaking out.

I ended up getting my car towed to our favorite auto body shop. I nearly cried. That's my baby. We think it may also be the alternator, but got the battery terminal fixed first.

I have my Zelnut brew in secondary :) A few weeks and it's time to bottle!

Thursday I got my car back :)

It was also one month done this week, so we celebrated with cake. 
Pina Colada Cupcakes were our cake of choice this month :)

Muffin (who is Nick's cat) has been very clingy and attached to me since he left. Poor baby.

 Friday, we had an appt to resign up for the daycare program on post. They had this little puzzle board in the waiting area and I almost didn't let them play with it. It has all the locks that I don't want my kids knowing how to a deadbolt on #5.

 The weekend was spent at our friends' house. The kids played Wii with Matt :)

...while Jamie, Amanda, and I decorated and made the cake for one of their friend's birthday.

Jamie brought her GS, Peanut, who is just the best dog ever - didn't get a picture of Duke, but he's feeling much better and back to his normal bulldoggy self! We decided to do a Grease themed night, so I went as Frenchy (as Frenchy as possible) and Amanda was Rizzo.

I went with polka dot, puffy sleeves, flower in the hair, and pearl necklace with lipstick included for Frenchy at the carnival scene :)

After the kids went to bed, Matt made me a brain hemorrhage shot! I've seen these on Pinterest and overheard him talking about how they made them the week before. So I had to have one. It's Peach Schnapps, Bailey's, Blue curacao, and grenadine syrup. I honestly thought I'd not like it, since I'm not a big fan of peach-flavored anything and I don't like Bailey's, but it was good. 
Really sweet though, so I only had 2 the whole night.

In the morning, I ran out for bacon and syrup and Amanda made us all bacon pancakes!

 Sunday night, the kids and I had a DS party :) We played Mario Party...I won. haha

This week I shared some of my very favorite recipes to date on the food blog.

Hope y'all have a great week!

hoo hoo!
