I have been a total slacker lately...mainly because I am almost 7 months pregnant.  That's all I got.  So in an effort to bring you up to speed on our little life let's use bullets, shall we?

  • Tradd and Jackson and I had a hankering for some homemade chocolate chip cookies (read: their mama is almost 7 months pregnant and sometimes these things just come over her)  After Kelly and Nina both mentioned them, it just had to be done.  You can find the recipe here.  Only change I would make is to add less salt...maybe 1/2 teaspoon instead of 1 teaspoon.  

  • Lee has been working so hard in our yard over the past 2 months.  He (and some REALLY GREAT friends) laid the sod, and he has planted every shrub.  He has saved us so much money and I am really proud of him...our yard is just beautiful.  It makes me smile just to pull in the driveway.  
  • The boys are wrapping up their second season of t-ball and it's been a really fun year.  Lee was not planning on being a head coach this year, but a week before practices were to start we got a call requesting that he consider it because the t-ball league was 6 coaches short.  He agreed (after quickly asking a few buddies to help him) and so team Gilligan's had a Head Shrimp.  Both boys have really improved this year, but they still get distracted when a butterfly makes its way on to the field or if a friend from preschool is on the other team, but I digress.   

  • I also have to tell you about E-mealz!  My cousin told me about this months ago and after moving and getting settled, Lee and I decided to try it for our family.  Basically, E-mealz is a service to help you plan dinner for a week.  It can be customized for the grocery store at which you shop and even diet requirements (low carb, low fat, etc).   The BEST news though is that I just won a free three month subscription on another blog!  Yay me!!!
