Two much

Surely Avery is not two and it is not about to be Labor day weekend. Seriously my son cannot be having his first soccer practice for the fall next week and curriculum night is not tomorrow! What?!!! It cannot be the end of August. Though I am excited about the fall and all the extravaganzas it brings, but really what is going on? So busy here and crazy life going on.

i want to post on trip to INK with Annalise & Austin, aunties, & Avery's fun party...but here are 2 photos with a promise of more to come...

too funny!

I like my new school I do! But I miss my friends dearly. I miss running down to their rooms & next door for advice or throwing things on the floor =) It's just not the same not being able to see them everyday. Now we are all spread across three schools and one at home!

I feel for all the college freshmen going off to college and embarking on their new adventures. I had my longtime friend Tiff with me @ college, but it was so hard meeting all new people that i would be spending so much time with. Luckly I didn't quit because that fall I met my husband!!! anyway...change is good for the soul, right?

well two years ago a soon-to-be 2 year old was in my tummy past her due date...
off to clean up...much ado for next weekend's cherry party =)

peanut better

oh I have been so bad...I should be eating this for dessert

but I have been having Paul get peanut butter fudge sundaes from Sonic and thisfrom Publix the past few days.
don't get me wrong~ school started off well and Bryce absolutely loves it, but all this newness has got me stressing and eating sinfully. & these cookies too. Oh well.
I am so sad Starbucks has gone to the mini pre-packaged black & white cookies, but isn't that how it always is?

I see this is my future..yeah whenever I have the time to make it. I found it on my new favorite site~ The Chocolate Peanut Butter Gallery a site dedicated to the world's two best ingredients.

Nigella Lawson’s Chocolate Peanut Butter Fudge Sundae

Yields 4 servings
3/4 cup heavy cream, 4 oz milk chocolate, chopped1/2 cup smooth peanut butter, 3 Tbsp golden syrup, 4 scoops toffee or caramel ice cream, 4 scoops chocolate ice cream, 4 scoops vanilla ice cream, 4 tablespoons or 1/4 cup salted peanuts, roughly chopped or left whole to taste, 4 chocolate cigar cookies
1. Put all the cream, chopped chocolate, peanut butter and golden syup into a saucepan and put it on the heat to melt, stirring occasionally. In about 2 minutes you should have your sauce ready.
2. Get out 4 sundae glasses and put a scoop of toffee or caramel ice cream in each, followed by 1 of the chocolate and then another of vanilla.
3. Pour over some chocolate peanut butter fudge sauce and sprinkle with salted peanuts.
4. Stick a chocolate cigar cookie in each sundae glass, hand them round and wait for people to weep with gratitude. {love it}

must stop now. I'll dream about it..along with word walls and leveled books
