Yes, that is nail polish. At least 4 different colors. And it was all over her legs, arms, and a little bit was on her face. I felt so sick and had such a headache by the time I finished getting it off! Upside? Breanne now has a shirt to wear for painting and other projects that I don't care about getting messy. And this time it was someone else's bedding instead of her own...
I am seriously so excited that my garden is actually doing well! Other veggies growing--pumpkins, corn, peppers, watermelon, and beans (which are really struggling because something is eating them something fierce!) More pictures to come--I took all these at 2:00 in the afternoon, so everything is a little wilty, which I didn't want to show off, so maybe I'll take a few when everything is big and full tonight.
Back to the point--
I really wanted a change, and my hair was starting to fall out in clumps (post pregnancy wonder), so I decided to chop off a bunch. I wasn't going to go quite so short, but I decided to donate it, and wanted to be sure it'd be long enough for that, so this is what happened. Whaddaya think?

On to other things: I have a confession to make. I am not a very good cook. I mean, I can really follow a recipe well, but as for coming up with things on my own--not so good, not so good. So if I decide what I want to make early enough, we usually end up with a pretty good meal, which I like. However, if I don't decide what to make, we just end up eating cereal or sandwiches or spaghettios or pastaroni... The thing is, most of my meals require chicken to be cooked and cut up, which takes a while, plus the actual meal prep, so by the end of the day, I'm too tired to put a real meal together. So my question for you is this:
What are your favorite quick and easy meals? The ones you make when you're running out of time, but still want a decent dinner to eat as a family?
I'm wanting to add some new stuff to our menu, so any help you can give will be much appreciated. Thanks in advance.
The Memory Post
1. As a comment on my blog, leave a memory that you and I had together. It doesn't matter if you know me a little or a lot, anything you remember! If we're only blogging friends, write about a post that is most memorable.
2. Next, re-post these instructions on your blog and see how many people leave a memory about you. It's actually pretty funny to see the responses. If you leave a memory about me, I'll be sure to write one about you... either on your blog, in my comment box, or I will email you back!
3. If the memory happens to involve my husband or kids, please include them!
4. If you can't say something nice, don't say nothin' at all ☺
And please do this on your page, too, so we can all share in the fun times together. :)
You will be missed, Craig.
loves to be sitting or standing up, looking at her surroundings
can't help but open her mouth when tilted forward
rolls over (both ways--I can't believe she's doing it so soon!)
scoots all over the floor somehow
coos at and plays with Breanne
blows lots of bubbles
loves raspberries (the tongue kind, not the fruit)
likes to look around upside down (with her head hanging off your lap is her favorite)
grabs at her toys, and sometimes succeeds at getting them in her mouth
cries more than ever because she is frustrated at not being able to do what she wants
sleeps from around 11:00 pm to 8:00 am without waking me up once because she
sucks on her hands (more and more just her thumb) to soothe herself
is such a wonderful, beautiful, happy baby
jumps with both feet off the ground
pretends to cry when people on tv or around her are sad
has a "baby bird" and "baby puppy" that she carries around, pets, and feeds (don't most kids have imaginary human friends?)
turns on movies for herself, and adjusts the input for either vhs or dvd
regularly colors on her arms and legs
pumps her legs while on the swing
asks to go play at her friend's homes
helps bring in groceries
takes naps willingly
plays with and reads to Janey
helps herself to snacks
loves to fall down at the end of ring around the rosy
is totally lovable, and usually very fun to be around

And believe it or not, I tried it twice with Breanne (she looks equally like each of us? No way!) with two different photos, and they both came out equal--I can't believe it. Janey, on the other hand, ranged from 8-17% more like Cory. Pretty fun stuff. Oh, and it really does use some face recognition software, so it's pretty legit, not just comparing colors or anything... wowsers, eh? :)
Anyway, it was lots of fun. I don't have any pictures (Katie? what do you have?), but I did have a blast. Thanks again, Kilger family.
P.S. The song 'I Think About You" was my favorite for years... and now it just makes me cry... before I always thought about it from the daughter point of view (Raye wrote it for his daughter), but now, having girls... Yes, yes, I definitely love Collin Raye, and his music.
