I have been on vacation from work since last Thursday. We aren't going anywhere so I guess it's a stay-cation but I'm still having fun! I honestly thought I would have so much more time for blogging but I haven't really been able to look at blogs for a week. We have been so busy! Brock's 8th grade graduation and party was last week. Brock took the battery out of my camera for his xbox so this is the only picture I have of his graduation-ha ha! This is from the after graduation party at the school.
Thanks to my friend Sabrina I have a new appreciation for succulents. I got this one at Lowe's and my friend Allison gave me the cute chalkboard sign for it. I think she got the little sign at Michaels.
This morning I made tortellini salad for lunch. It's a variation of the tortellini and tomato salad that's in this month's southern living magazine. Here is a link to the recipe.
This is the a picture from the southern living blog.
For mine I added some celery, tomato, carrots and sharp cheddar cheese cubes. I tossed the pasta, vegetable and cheese with balsamic vinaigrette dressing.
Here is the bowl that I had for lunch it was great!
My friend Allison made us a pan of home made mac and cheese for dinner tonight. It's her grandma's recipe and she put it on her blog today. I can't wait to try it! Thanks Allison!
PS This is also my 500th post!!I started blogging 3 years ago and it's become a fun hobby for me. I love getting ideas and seeing how other people live. Happy Wednesday.
