Dancing With The Stars

I have to admit ... watching Dancing With The Stars is a guilty pleasure.

I just love that show.

My favorites are Drew & Cheryl, then Stacy and her partner (can't remember his name). But I am a bit torn because I really like Jerry Rice and his partner as well. If any of these three dance couples win, I will be happy, especially if it's Drew & Cheryl.

I feel a little sorry for Ashly. She did really well last season with Joey McEntire. She has held her head high and danced her little heart out this season despite having a dance partner who chooses not to wear Ballroom dance shoes, in every sense of the word.

Can't wait until tomorrow night to see who America decides to send home.

Griffin's Crush

Griffin does some seriously cute things.

Last night he did one of the absolutely cutest things ever.

After dinner and a bath he was pretty sleepy. His Daddy was rocking him and he was asleep in his arms.

Griffin has always been fascinated with the little girl on the Welch's Grape Juice Commercial. The one with long dark hair in side ponytails. Everytime that commercial comes on, he stops what he is doing and watches it. He recognizes her voices.

Well ...

Last night ...

Our son was in a deep sleep in Daddy's arms ...

All of a sudden he jumped up, spun around and started watching tv.

The Welch's Grape Juice commercial was on. After it went off, he settled back into Daddy's arms and fell back to sleep.

Mike and I were laughing so hard.

We could hardly believe our dear son came out of a deep sleep for his "crush".

That's love.

Staying At Home

You know ... I enjoy staying home.

I really look forward to the days when I have to go nowhere.

I can just stay home ... work, take care of Griffin, Wyatt and Mike and whatever else needs to be done around the house.

I get soooo much accomplished when I don't go out at all.

So ... here's to staying home as often as possible.

What bugs me about cooking shows

I love watching The Foodnetwork and Martha on TLC.

But you know ... there's something they all do that just bothers me.

Okay ...

So when they are putting the dry ingredients in to mix up, stir up, etc ... they just DUMP them in. Isn't it easier to sprinkle them all around to make it easier to mix up?

Salt ... they just dump it in
Pepper ... they just dump it in
Cinnamon ... they just dump it in

Sprinkle, sprinkle, sprink ... that's my cooking philosophy.

This morning I decided to make an early morning run to Walmart. I got G all packed up to go and we headed out. Normally when I do the early morning run to Walmart I always feed G at the McDonald's. He normally eats breakfast at 9:30. Well, I did my regular shopping and then my grocery shopping, checked out and as I was leaving my husband calls me on the phone. We chit chatted and I said, by the way what time is it? Well, it's 9:50. I still have another 30 minutes to drive home. Dilemma.

So, do I feed G his formula and baby food while sitting in the car ... it's 33 degrees outside. Or ... do I just say to heck with it and drive home and hope he's okay. Well, I decided to do the last choice.

Big Mistake!

Our boy was hungry ...

And he let me know about it the entire way home.

I kept talking to him and assuring him we would be home soon. Something tells me an 11 month old does not want to hear reassuring words ... he just wanted food.

But you know ... his crying/screaming really got to me.

It made me think about all of the hungry children in the world. If my son reacts the way he did after only being delayed an hour for food ... I can only imagine how children in other countries that are starving every day feel.

It made me cry.
