10.6.09

Hi, friends :) I thought I'd just quickly post some photos of some pendants I made for the retreat this weekend. (can't believe it's finally here...yahoo, girl time!) Anything that doesn't sell, I will put in my Etsy shop. (pendant photos are below)

I sure wish I was going to have time to scrapbook, but I just haven't been able to get anything together. I'm feeling the need to purge a LOT of stuff. I feel more creative when my supplies are limited. So glad I did that last spring with my patterned papers. I only have a couple of paper holders full and it's just fine with me.

Since I'm going away this weekend, I'm planning to make some food for the freezer for the boys and for me to take with me. My hotel room has a microwave and refrigerator and I'd really rather not eat fast food all weekend...just not a fan. (except for Chick-Fil-A) Here are some of the recipes I'm planning on making:

Pumpkin Muffins
King Ranch Chicken
Chili (I just use the 2-alarm chili spices mix and add red kidney beans)
Chicken Spaghetti Casserole
Pecan-Crusted Chicken Breasts (for sandwiches or salads)

Have you started on Halloween costume gathering yet? Noah wants to be Link from The Legend of Zelda and my sister is going to sew the green tunic for him. The rest of the costume we can get from Goodwill and Dad's closet. :)

Jen,
Several years ago, one of my nephews wanted to be Link for Hallowen. I adapted a pattern for a Peter Pan costume and it turned out quite cute...if I say so myself. Unfortunately, my sister didn't take any pictures. :o(
I bet Noah will be just as cute!

And, I love your pendants!

Jennifer,
Made your pumpkin muffins this morning and had one for desser at lunch. I can tell I'll be whipping together another batch tomorrow so we can have some for the week. Do you ever not double it?!?!?
Thanks for the recipes and the pretty things to look at.
