Whoa. Long time, no blog! Sorry about that. Would you hate it if I was all, I haven’t written since Friday, but nothing has even been going on? Like, I’ve just been sitting here eating Oreos and working on my tan, and I have nothing to report on? That would suck. What really sucks is that I’ve gotten a few shout outs from other bloggers like The Girl Next Door and Tyly, but if anyone clicks over here they probably think I never write! I do, I do, pinky swear! Patience grasshoppers.
Ok well, lucky you I have had stuff going on, so listen up! (I have been eating Oreos and working on my tan too though.) First, on Friday afternoon we set out to get Shawn a car. We actually found the one we wanted on Thursday night, and after a lot of back and forth phone calls, 2 bags of popcorn, and driving around to 4 other dealerships…we finally bought it on Friday afternoon. Behold Shawn’s new bitch:
It’s a 2009 Nissan Altima. You like? Don’t worry, I told him if he trashes this one like he did the Stratus that I will stab him in the jaw. That’s a promise people.
I hate to say this, but I honestly can’t even remember what we did on Saturday. It must have been exciting. Wait a minute, I’ve got it! Being the domestic goddess (and soon to be iron goddess) that I am, I did a lot of cooking and cleaning for our Father’s Day get together on Sunday. All of that is quite boring except this:
That deliciousness is an Oreo and fudge ice cream cake. Yum. It’s so easy to make, but looks like you’ve slaved for hours! You can find the recipe I used here. I did make mine in a 9 x 13 pan, but everything else was the same.
On Sunday we went to church and then had my family over for Father’s Day. Here are a few pictures from Sunday:
My nephew Alex, I believe that’s ice cream cake on his mouth!
My Grandpa with my nephew, Ryan:
Grandpa with a few of the great-granddaughters…Alivia, Natalie, and Lainey:
Sunday was also my sister’s birthday. She told me she would kill me if I posted this picture on Facebook, so I thought I’d post it on here instead! Hehehe!
(please note my redneck pool in the background)
This post isn’t over yet, because I actually did something on Monday too! Can you believe it? It’s exciting too! Are you ready? I had my very first blog date! Ya know, like I met another blogger! Yup. I have been following Jen from A Tale of Two Coins since her husband passed away almost 2 years ago. Jen also lives in Michigan, so we met up in Birch Run to go shopping and to lunch. I was actually ridiculously nervous, but I had a great time, and I don’t think Jen thought I was too much of a creeper.
