Changing the way I think about Ketchup!!

I obviously don't get out much! Today I went to the Chick-Fil-A for lunch and could not believe my eyes when I saw this way cool ketchup packet/cup. Gone are the days of opening packets with my teeth and squeezing ketchup all over my white shirt (it always happens when I'm wearing white!). I love the fact that you can dip or squeeze these little babies....options are always good. I had to bring one home to show the kids and of course, to blog about it!

My Life in Numbers

4....the number of books I am currently reading.

13.1.....the number of miles I walked on Saturday with my friend Stephanie!

7....the number of times I have looked at the Boden catalog online and wanted to order, but couldn't bring myself to spend the money.

2...the number of times I have made chili this month. October=chili according to me.

21....the number of apples I peeled, cored, and sliced and then made applesauce with. Delicious!

What I've been doing....

I seriously cannot believe the boys have been in school for 2 months! Time has sure flown. Everyone asks me what I do with all my time now. To be totally honest, by the time I drop the boys off at school, I have exactly 2 hours and 32 minutes until they walk back into the house. I know lots of moms who would love 2 hours and 32 minutes of kid-free time, but in reality it goes very quickly!! I have spent lots of time sorting legos (yes, I'm crazy). But we had about 7 large lego sets that became one big giant box of legos. I put several sets together (way too time consuming!) and sold them at my garage sale in September. I am still finding pieces in the yard and under beds. The fun never ends.
We have also been selling popcorn for Noah's scout troop. So if you need any popcorn, we still have some to get rid of. Noah's goal is $350 in sales and we are almost there! He is quit the salesman.
I have also been eating way too many of these. I don't typically buy Little Debbie snack cakes because I can eat an entire box in a day. But when I start seeing these little beauties at the front of the store, I have to buy them. They are the best and get eaten very quickly around these parts.
And lastly, I just read this book and had to share that it is one of the best books I have ever read. Seriously, read this book! It is an amazing story of love and faith and hope. The Greenfield library has a copy (I am returning it today), so go check it out!
