Cheesey Chicken Tater Tot Casserole

Another recipe I found via Pinterest and it's made in a crock pot/slow cooker.  I love meals that are cooked in a crock pot.  Just toss everything in the pot and walk away!  I found this recipe via The Country Cook.

Dulles 28 Centre Toddler Play Area

We are always looking for new playgrounds to take Michael to.  This way he's not tired of the same park.  Growing up, there was only about three parks I played at.  Michael is so lucky to be growing up in an area

Taco Bake

I'm always trying to find new recipes, but it's rather hard with the picky eaters that live with me.  So when I went on Pinterest and saw this recipe from GOODness Gracious, I thought that Jon would at least

Finally got some ME time and I decided to vacuum out my car

Today was the first day of taking Michael to school without Jon and I finally got some much needed ME time.  I had made a goal of trying to work on stuff around the house that I normally can't work on while

Even though the list is small, it doesn't mean that it won't eat up a good bit of your budget - Meal Plans and Grocery Trip for September 12th - 18th

First Day of Preschool 2014

Today was Michael's first day of preschool and he did great!  He actually got up before Jon or mine's alarm clock.  Not sure if it was just excitement or what.  After we got Michael dressed, we took him down to the playroom to take his "first day of school" picture.

One Year Bloggerversary!!

Can't believe that I've been writing this blog for a year!  Yep, a year ago today I decided to take the plunge and write about pretty much anything.  I had no idea what I was doing and even though in the
past year my knowledge about the blogging world has increased, I still have no idea what I'm doing at times.  I hope you all have enjoyed all the posts that I've written over the past year.

Taco Salad

beef recipes, Mexican recipes, taco salad, simple dish for a picnic or pot luck, salad,
I first want to apologize for the pictures in this post.  The flash in my camera decided to die while I was taking the pictures.

The Sunday before Labor Day is always the day of Jon's family's reunion.  Every family is suppose to provide at least one dish to feed their whole family for two meals.  Yes, there are two meals at this family reunion!  Since I had just gotten my Aunt Robin's taco salad recipe from my step-mom a few months ago, I decided that I would make that.  It was a hit!
