New Obsession

Almost every morning I have the same breakfast.
Spinach smoothie, eggs, and Ezekiel toast.
Any thing else usually leaves me hungry an hour later.
That is until I found a recipe for protein powder pancakes.
Kaleb could eat pancakes for every meal so I though I would try these out to see if we could enjoy some pancakes together.

Cooking up some blueberry deliciuosness
Topping them with my other(pricey) obsession. Seriously I didn't know what I missing until I splurged on this stuff.
They are delicious!
Now I have something new to eat with my spinach smoothie.
Kaleb eats about 5 so I think he approves of the new pancakes...still working on getting him to drink spinach though. Someday
Now off to enjoy the long weekend.
We checked out the Hangover last night and the rest of the weekend will be spent with family.
Hope you all enjoy your Memorial Day weekend!

Terri's Last Fling

Over the weekend we celebrated Terri's imepending wedding with her last night out as a single lady.
Some ladies( and a couple of gentleman ) started the night out at my place with a lingerie shower.

For the favors I painted each girl ( and Jason ) a wine glass with their initial

She opened some pretty gifts while we sipped some pretty drinks.

Getting ready for champagne After presents it was time to see how well Terri knows Erick. The questions were basic but things you might not really know about those close to you.
Dream car, first job, etc.
For every wrong answer she had to take a jello shot. For every correct answer she had to give a jello shot.
They got a little melty but these are strawberry jello shots in a strawberry.

Terri's Pimp Cup

After the shower it was time to head to the club.
Getting ready to head out
Terri's friend Katye was able to get us a VIP at Club Pink.
Soon we were there and getting our dance on.

Highlights of the club that went undocumented.
Smelly Napolean Dynamite guy. Seriously he pulled out his pocket comb on the dance floor.
Projectile vomit from the girl dancing on a pole into the crowd.
This disgusting scene led to a fight in the crowd.

You couldn't ask for better entertainment.
I had a great time on my last night out with my single Terri!

Teacher's Appreciation Week!

Teacher's Appreciation Week was a great and busy one this year!
The class gave small gifts to Mrs. Adams and their specialty teachers each day.

Monday-S'more packs
Tuesday-Water Bottles with tea mix
Wednesday-Peanut Trail Mix
Thursday-M&M Popcorn
Friday-Cake Pops
I found those cool tags on the Domesticated Lady.
Love the internet help during this busy week!

Her main gift from the class was an awesome framed image using scriptures to spell her name.
Our other home room mom found it and I wish I had a photo of it because they are so cool.

While watching the class Thursday for her extended lunch I had the kids write their name on one side of a paper star and their dream job on the other.
I put all these "dreams" into a jar and attached a Panera gift card to it.
It was so cute and it will be neat to see which kids go on to do those jobs!

The year is wrapping up and it was so great to do these small tokens of appreciation for these great teachers!

Also cool this week; Kaleb got first place in his class for the Jog A Thon.
So proud of our little runner!

Easter...mostly a pictures post

Easter this year was pretty standard.

There was the decorating of Easter eggs.
Never buy the kits with the tattoos for your eggs. They do not work and your child will be disappointed that you are left with plain Easter eggs.
There was an Easter bunny visit
Somehow we have a tradition of leaving a banana for his toy monkeys.
I'm not sure how this started but he expects it every year.
Indiana Jr. was born
There was 8 AM Mass
All dressed up but he did not want to give up that Indy gear
There was a visit with Kenny's family.
Karen made a great meal and Jon & Karen had lots of treats for Kaleb.
There was a visit with my family-More yummy food and more toys for Kaleb

Terri & Megan
Stephanie loves having her picture taken
Then there was an exhausted Stone family

I hope everyone else had a great Easter filled with family!
