We started out this morning by going to the orientation for Kyle's culinary academy. That went well - short and to the point. Then we headed over to the Men's Wearhouse where Patrick and Kyle were fitted for their tuxes for the wedding. I can't believe the wedding is in 3 weeks!! Where has the time gone??? From there we stopped at Michael's where I got 4 new Cricut cartridges - Winter Woodland, From My Kitchen (but of course!), Sweethearts, and A Child's Year. Add that to the cartridge I bought yesterday (Calligraphy Collection) and it brings my cartridge total to 58, I think. I also pre-ordered the Gypsy (Patrick actually got me this for my birthday, which isn't until October - which comes in handy since it won't ship until Oct or Nov!). Today I started working on a handmade gift for my future DIL...I can't say what it is just in case she reads this blog - which I SERIOUSLY doubt! lol. I just don't want to take the chance. We stopped by the body shop to get the estimate on our car repair (the valet parking people wrecked it on our anniversary) and then grabbed lunch to go. Then we came home and took a nap (something I almost never do!). I woke up and cleaned up my scraproom a bit and then started on Iddy's gift (Iddy is Elizabeth's nickname). I then cooked dinner using a new recipe I recently discovered for Spicy Peanut-Crusted Chicken (I placed the recipe on my cooking blog - feel free to check it out at www.cookingwithcaitysue.blogspot.com) and it turned out FABULOUS! We have nice, fat bellies now :). I could sure use a few more days like today, that's for sure!
Now I'm headed to my dear friends, Jahn and Debra, to have some good, red wine and sit by the fire pit. I am so blessed to have these two as dear friends!
Well, I just wanted to check in since I have promised to be more diligent with my blogging.
Hugs and thanks for reading!
