Week in Review

In the last week...

I started using this super cute bag I got for my birthday as a work tote. It's the prefect size for books / notebooks / folders. The plan for the year is "if it won't fit in the bag it doesn't come home". We will have to see how that goes.

Handy made shish-ka-bobs for supper on Tuesday. We had the fancy yellow tomatoes from Carol's garden. Not only did they look like they came from a magazine they were super tasty too. (Notice the three on the right with no mushrooms... those are mine.)

We took my 21st annual "first day of school photo". I think it would be funny to put them all in a book together.

I found out why it's a bad idea to let iced tea sit on my night stand for a few days. Nothing a little soda / water / vinegar can't take care of.

Bevo did what Bevo always does... sometimes I wish I was our dog!

Jungle Jim's

For the last road trip of the summer we decided to go to Jungle Jim's.

Never in my life have I ever seen a grocery store that was this big with so much stuff! There was food from all over the world (some normal, and some not so normal).

We weren't allowed to take pictures inside the store so you can't see the Handy Man chasing Little Sister around with chicken feet or me hiding behind Handy while being grossed out by a whole pig head (eyes and snout included).

It's not a road trip without taking pictures in the car!

This is my almond poppy seed mini-bread. I was starving so I decided to start taking bites.

Handy got random kinds of animal (alligator, elk, buffalo) jerky.

Little Sister got candy with bugs in the middle.

The Dr. Pepper queen bought some Dr. Pepper barbecue sauce.

After spending 6 hours in the car and 3 and 1/2 hours in a grocery store we were home safe and sound!

Summer Nights!

The traffic was terrible but the show was great!

I was super excited that Darius came back out. We missed his whole set while sitting in that crazy traffic.

Rascal Flatts (take 2) was a complete success!!!

44 inches?

Yesterday we went to Sonic for lunch. Since it's still kind of new and far away we have only been there twice. I was super excited about what I was going to get for a drink (not that I had any clue what I wanted and changed my mind three times before I ordered) because they have lots of choices. Vanilla Diet Dr. Pepper was the winner.

I got a combo meal and there was a free upgrade to a "route 44" drink... The girl asked if I wanted the bigger drink and I said sure. What I didn't realize is that the dang 44 ounce cup of soda (that I really don't drink all that often in the first place) would be bigger than my head!

After telling the Handy Man: "This is the biggest cup I've ever seen!" about a million times he started looking at me like I was nuts.

He was really looking at me like I was nuts when I made him take my picture with the cup so I could prove it was "as big as my head"!
