Good Morning!!  We had a great first week of school, and already a three-day weekend!!  I’ve been a little under-the-weather all weekend, but the bonus to that is I have been relaxing and reading!! See below for what I’ve been enjoying.  We’ve had a pretty snow-less winter so far; winter is broken.  It was nice that we had snow for Christmas, but nothing since then.  This past week we were hit with freezing rain, and that was not fun.  Would love at least one good snow storm this year.  Hope everyone had a great weekend, and here’s to another week ahead!!

Linking-up with Sandra at Diary of a Stay at Home Mom.

 

THE WEATHER OUTSIDE IS:

Go home mother nature…you’re drunk.

RECIPE I WANT TO TRY/HAVE TRIED:chicknalfredo

So, I did try the Chicken Bacon Alfredo Bread Boat.  It turned out really good, and I received several thumbs up.  The one thing I did differently is I didn’t buy one big French loaf of bread.  I saw it on the shelf at the store, but I’m sorry, I just could not bring myself to buy something that sits on a shelf, wrapped only in a paper wrapper, that has the end of the bread sticking out.  So, I bought these little individual rolls, called Bambino Rolls and made several little ones.

This is the next thing I want to try, Slow Cooker Shredded Steak Tacos.

My niece had made these, and my sister said they were delicious.  They look yummy.

 

WHAT I’M READING: 

This is a “Christmas story,” it takes place around Christmas.  My mom had read it, and she told me about it, so I started reading it over the weekend.  You can’t go wrong with Richard Paul Evans.  He writes a Christmas story every year, and I have enjoyed them all.  The Mistletoe Secret is about a divorced blogger who writes about how lonely she is.  A recently divorced man finds her blog, and relates to her loneliness, and forms an attraction to her through her words.  She has no identifying information on her blog, except her initials and she mentions a few clues that sends him to her little town to find her.  As always great writing, and great characters.  Loved this…

“One of those rare women who are beautiful but don’t know it” He thought a moment then said, “I think Polish girls are like that.  The whole country.”

I stayed up last night and finished it, a very good read!!

 

FAVORITE VIDEO(S) FROM THE WEB:

This just makes me smile.  First Lady Michelle Obama was such an inspiration to so many, always classy, and she truly cared for all American people.  She will be missed.

 

 

FAVORITE PIC FROM THE CAMERA:

This was from a couple of years ago, taken from our front porch.  Just want to wake up to this one morning!!
