This weekend I went on a mini shopping spree. It was actually good! I got Gage's Halloween costume (the hamburger from Old Navy),two dresses, a pair of leggings, and a top for myself. I got two baby gifts at BRU, and then I got a pair of shoes and tights at DSW. Unfortunately, the tights from DSW didn't fit at all -- not even close. And I didn't end up liking the shoes with the outfit, but those two will be an easy switch.

It's the whole ballet shoe thing that I haven't gotten into. I liked the pointy toe flats when I was shopping when I had jeans on, but they just didn't look good with tights and a dress. They had so many there, so I may just exchange them. Anyway, it was really nice to get some fairly cheap new things.

It has been AGES since I've done more than open up a bag of frozen green beans and cook them in some water. Ages ago, I'd take the time to make them with bacon and onion.

A small group of us are making a meal for a mutual friend that had a baby, and I'm preparing green beans and a fruit salad. I want it to be MORE than just plain ol' green beans.
The fanciest I've ever gotten was butter and sliced almonds.

My family does the Thanksgiving green bean casserole with the french's onions. Not my fave, but it's popular.

Have you ever done Jackie G's green bean bundles?

What are you going to do while in Orlando?

They're SO good. But to be honest, more often than not, I stick the bag in the microwave and then sprinkle salt on them. That's about it.

I bet they're delicious with bacon and onions!

TFS the link! It sounds like a good recipe.

I bet the hamburger costume is soooo cute!! I can't wait to see pics of Gage wearing it.

It sounds like you got some good deals. I'm sorry that the tights and the shoes aren't working for you.

Kris, I'm sorry about the electrical bill fiasco. Am I understanding this correctly: she was charged for two accounts and it took a year to say something? Have you talked to the electric company? If I know more details, I can ask Darren what his company would do if it were to happen to one of their customers.

I wish I could figure out how to upload a video of Travis from last week's jr high pep rally!!!

It was the FUNNIEST thing ever.

10 boys were selected to do a "jump off" with the cheerleaders. The 1st cheerleader did a hurkey, and the 1st boy had to mimic her. The 2nd boy did a hurdler (???) and the 2nd boy mimiced her. The 3rd cheerleader did a toe touch and Travis had to mimic her.

It was soooo funny.

As soon as Travis got out on the floor, he began stretching and acting silly. Then, when he saw the jump he had to copy, he told the boy next to him, "I've got this." Then, much to my amazement, Travis did a FULL OUT TOE TOUCH. It was quite surprising!

I splurged on a video camera and once I figure out how to upload it to youtube, I'll have to share the link.

What kind of soup did you make?

Kris, that is a real drag about the bills. I really hope you guys can get it worked out easily. I would LOVE a $150-200 electric bill! Ours is usually around $250-300.

Jess, hope it works out ok with Josh but I personally think you are worth more than a booty call!!!! Maybe this could get him to thinking about how truly awesome of a lady you are. Would you be open to more of a relationship with him?

Going to work on some homework with Grace. Her math grade is low and one of the big reasons is that she likes to rush through it and missed several things. A benchmark test with a low score=not a happy mom!!!

Have a good evening!

I can't believe the energy costs in TX. Amanda used to talk about how expensive it was. And that wasn't even for a really cold house.

I think our equal pay for electricity is $76. Our gas is around $62. A little high, but I have a gas dryer on that.

The only thing I do to save a little money is using a programable thermostat and those swirly florescent lights. Honestly, if I'm hot, I crank it down. Shane complains that it's too cold. I'm lucky the bill is not outrageous.

I wish I had a bigger house!! Ours is around 1300-1400 sf but we have a really vaulted ceiling, a couple of rooms upstairs and run the ceiling fans all the time in the summer. We are total electric.

Yeah, rates are high here I guess. We are on a contract right now with TXU. There are so many other companies but I know rates can really go up with them once your term is up.

Man, I think Grace's math teacher is trying to "trick" them (or us!) Tells them to do certain problems on the homework sheet which would technically end up being only 4 problems. Does she do the other ones at the bottom of the page? Those problem's numbers aren't included in the "do this" section.

I feel so stupid!!! If she asks the teacher, is she going to think we can't follow instructions? UGH!!!!

I know, you're right. I am worth more than that. But, until I find someone I want more with, I'm happy to just be friends with benefits!

Josh isn't that someone. He's fun to hang out with, and he's hot, but he just doesn't have his life together as much as I want. I know that sounds bad or shallow or whatever, especially because I'm pretty broke myself, but I want someone that doesn't have to eat ramen every night and isn't always sure he can cover his rent. I may not always have all the money I want, but I'm fortunate enough to never have to worry about at least covering the mandatory stuff. And, I don't think he's the settling down type, at least not for the foreseeable future.

Word!

I tend to zero in on recipes that have expensive ingredients, like yummy cheeses and things like that.

I feel so stupid!!! If she asks the teacher, is she going to think we can't follow instructions? UGH!!!!
I'd say do the ones in the "do this" section. Man, I do not look forward to helping my possible future children with homework!

Jess, that hardly sounds shallow!!! You've been through that before and came out strong so you have a right to want someone stable.

You'll know when it's right!! Boy Toy's need their place in the world too....

I do think that's a big part of it. I've been with someone that nearly destroyed me and because of him I know what it's like to live in fear of the creditors calling or in fear of being evicted. So, while I don't need to find someone that makes so much money that I can quit working (though that would be nice!) I DO need to find someone that won't ever put me through something like that ever again.

I don't mean to say that I think Josh would ever steal my identity or take money from me or anything. I just know that he has a very hard time making ends meet and his career will really never be a stable one.

It's a little more fresh in his mind! At the rate I'm going, I'll have been out of elementary school for 30 years by the time my kid gets there!

Yum! I'll have to bust out the recipe and try it!


Tonight I played around with the green beans.

I cut up several pieces of bacon and cooked it. I then added about half of a chopped onion and cooked it with the bacon. I added canned green beans and some chicken broth. Easy Peasy.

I don't think that my family will ever eat plain beans again.

Our last bill was over $500. The month before that, it was $450. I kept complaining that the house was warm so I had our local AC person come check it out. It turns out that the freon was leaking.


Jess, I agree w/ Jackie--you ARE worth more than a booty call!!!
