Like I Need Another Kitchen Gadget...

...but really, I think every kitchen should have a cast iron skillet. And mine is without one. So I'm trying to win this one plus some other stuff.

Because, hey, why not?

Random Thoughts...

...since it's Thursday. I feel like Maybe should start doing a "Random Thoughts Thursday" post. I've seen it around. They make me laugh. So here goes:

1. Work was slow today. Compared to the other restaurant, work always seems rather slow. So instead of standing around, I played ping pong for about 20 minutes. I really enjoy my job.

2. I'm starting to fall in love with "BabyLegs" leg warmers. Zac always puts Miss K in jumpers and dresses and I'd love some of these to keep her little legs warm. So I'm trying to win some from Thrifty Northwest Mom.

3. Logan has decided he likes pooping in the potty when he gets a prize. He has gone three times in the last three days. He just decides he wants whatever the prize of the day is (recently it's been Wall-E and Toy Story cutlery) and hops on the potty and goes. Maybe there will be an end to the diapers after all.

4. We still haven't heard back from any of the companies Zac has interviewed with recently. We're pretending that "no news isn't necessarily bad news." I mean, they haven't said no so...maybe he's still in the running???

5. Kaylee puts everything in her mouth. I mean EVERYTHING. And she chokes on it most of the time, too. I don't remember Logan putting so much stuff in his mouth. I mean, I guess he would, but then he would spit it out when he realized he couldn't eat it.

6. Jada Pinkett Smith has a band. It's called "Wicked Wisdom" and they claim to be a metal rock band. I don't necessarily like them. I just think it's random that Jada Pinkett Smith is in a metal rock band.

I am participating in a "Writing Marathon" this weekend. It is being hosted by one of my former creative writing teachers (I almost said "old," but she would kill me) via her blog Throwing Up Words. And I just reached one of my goals. 10,000 words. Can you believe that????? AAAAAAAAAAHHHH!!!! I'm so excited!!!!!! Granted, my original *impossible* goal was to get in 10,000 a day (for three days) and that didn't happen, but I've hit the 10,000 mark!!!!! Sure it's taken two days to get there, but I did it!!!!! EEEEE!!!!!

Deep In The Heart Of Texas...

Oh man did we have an AWESOME time. And I took a ton...and I mean a TON of pictures. So I think I may break it up day-by-day. Because a week with my Bests in Texas deserves a post per day. So, without further ado, Day 1:

The flight was great. Direct flights = Godsend. Layovers = the devil. If only Delta would create a direct flight from Salt Lake to Rochester, then we'd be in business. Until then, I will just have to look forward to taking another non-stop to San Antonio. Anyways, the kids were perfect on the plane. We had seats right behind first class, so we had like 3 or 4 feet of space for Miss K to crawl around in. It was handy. And Logan was very well behaved...he watched his new favorite movie ("Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs") and enjoyed his snacks. And Before we knew it:


The rest of the day was pretty low-key (as it should be on travel days) so Dani and I spent it chatting, taking a tour of her GORGEOUS home, and watching the boys do this pretty much all afternoon:

Stay tuned for days 2 thru 7!!! (Yes, you heard me. Day 7. That will be a fun post!!!)

Happy St. Patty's Day...

And stay tuned for a plethora of Texas pictures!!!!!!
