A little Nip and A Little Tuck

I'm not opposed to a little makeover especially if it makes you feel good.
No No you didn't click the wrong button....It's still me just better!!!

Thanks to Becca over at Jumping Jax Designs! She totally rocks and has the patience of stone. Well when it comes to working with me she does. I think I had her doing a million revisions and not once did she freak out on me! HAHA...Thanks Becca for your hard work. She even did all of this while moving! WOW..Super Woman!

Check out my new button too!




So run over to Jumping Jax and check out her prices and tell her I sent ya!!!


Thought I'd post a few items from our menu this week. I had a slow start on Sunday so if you have ideas send them my way.

Monday- Crock Pot Sloppy Joes (Gooseberry Path)
Tues- TBD
Wed- Yes French Dip again (The Inlaws heard about it from last week and are dying for it) dessert is going to be an amazing Choc Pecan Cheesecake!
Thurs- Diner Meatloaf Cups w/Corn Fritters
Friday and Saturday TBD

It's also Teacher Appreciation week for my younger kids.

Today we have a Sonic gift card w/a letter of thanks. The teachers love their Happy Hour and what better way to end your day then a couple of free drinks!!

Another day I'm making Sugared Pecans (saying thanks for being a sweet and nutty teacher this year)

Another day I'm making Texas Millionaires (saying thanks a MILLION for being my teacher)

Another day I'm making Caramel Pecan Apples

Whew!!! Teachers have a tough job and I wish we could do more to make them feel appreciated this week!!

I definitely wish I was your child's teacher!! I had a few parents like you, but know that you are special. Most parents don't even acknowledge Teacher Appreciation week. :)
