Pay it Forward

great movie is it not? made me cry.

well this is something a bit different, the concept is there, but it's between me and the first three that comment on this blog post.

here's what you're in for- the first three people that comment on this post will receive a cute hand-mad craft (i.e. bracelet, earrings, scarf, mitten- the cutest mittens you ever saw!- etc...) then those individuals will "pay it forward" on their blogs. there is a general one month rule though- you must make the gift and pass it on within a month of committing.

so time starts now!


go go go!

Treson boy!

Sorry I haven't posted pictures of the Treson boy lately, but these should be more than enough to make up for it!

he was so excited to get a valentine from his great-grandparents

yay for cup drinking!

helping me fold laundry- aka eating socks

it's his new thing- putting chapstick or lipstick in his mouth

I know he looks 3 here... but he's really like 10 months and tall for his age

Tre and his cousin Chloe- they really look a lot alike!

here's one where he pulled the chair down on himself and was laughing about it

these are out of chronological order- but I know you won't judge.

so valentines day was fun- AJ and I went ice skating at the Olympic oval and went to dinner at Macaroni Grill (good thing for reservations!!!!)We came back to our house watched a chick flick and had fun with rose petals.

AJ made it an extraordinary week that lead up to a wonderful day spent with him. it's all about the thoughtful little things! He thinks you should let your loved one know how much you care more than just one day a year. yes I know I'm lucky :)

I hope you all enjoyed the photos- we'll post some fun videos soon!

Saturday Night Fun.

So this past Saturday the 7th of Feb. We spent some time with our upstairs neighbors. Our partys get a little crazy :)

The Dye only cost 3$ so it was hard to pass up. My mustache looks really weird black. We decided Todd looks like Blackbeard or something hehe. I'm gonna shave here on Monday Night after work.

Everyone says i look like one of the Following guys:

Stan from Italian Job


Or Groucho

Which one do you think I look like?

Don't let the picture fool you. Mandy digs it :)

happiness in my mouth!

Every now and then I like to experiment with different recipes that come my way. I just had to pass this one along because it was so good!!!! I had my doubts after looking over the ingredient list- but WOW, you can't pass this one up!!!

Asian Kabobs

1 C. Mayonnaise
1/4 c. apricot preserves
1 sauce
1 T. Dijion mustard
1 clove of garlic minced
1/2 t. of ground ginger

mix all of the above together and reserve 1/3 cup for dipping.
skewer shrimp and chicken (in my house- shrimp for me and chicken for my husband, everyones happy!)and brush the remaining sauce on the kabobs. grill until done(chicken takes a bit longer than the shrimp, so I would grill them first and set them aside to juice back up) serve with rice and steamed veggies with the dipping sauce along side. You've got a little piece of Heaven on Earth!
