Six things...

{One}  I took two naps this weekend.  For some reason, I've been unusually exhausted this past week.  Here's hoping the second trimester energy burst hasn't left me already.  I've still go too much to do to go back to being tired all the time!

{Two}  We got the crown molding up in Grace's bedroom!  By "we," I mean my incredibly talented carpenter of a stepdad and my handsome husband.  It looks fantastic, y'all.  Micah still needs to paint it, but I'm already in love.

{Three}  My brother texted me this picture on Friday, and I just laughed and laughed when I saw it.

He had borrowed Micah's shotgun and was dropping it off at our house while we were at work.  Apparently Lilly was happy to see him. :)

{Four}  My mom's house caught on fire last Friday night.  Micah and I were on the way home from our anniversary dinner when we got a text from my mom telling us that her house was on fire.  We immediately turned around to head back into town where she lives when we remembered that we had accidentally left a candle burning while we went to dinner (something I never do).  After turning back around, driving to our house, blowing out the candle, and driving back to my Mom's, we drove up expecting the worst.

Thankfully, though, it was contained to their garage, none of their house was damaged, and they both made it out safely with their sweet puppies.  My stepdad had dumped some ashes from their fireplace into a trash can, and apparently some of them weren't completely out and caught the trash can on fire after an hour or two.  I'm still marveling at the fact that everyone was okay and that they only sustained very minor damage to their garage.  So, so thankful.

{Five}  The Bachelor starts back up tonight.  As usual, I'm seriously contemplating not watching because I feel like I lose brain cells every Monday night.  But if I was a betting woman, I'd wager that my TV will be stuck on ABC tonight from 7 to 9 p.m...

{Six} I put together a short menu for this week.  We're having One-Pot Pasta and BroccoliChicken and Pineapple Quesadillas, Cilantro Lime Chicken Tacos (again), and Slow-Cooker Tortilla Soup.  What are you guys cooking this week?

Tonight we're having chicken caesar sandwiches. I haven't cooked in 2 weeks (holidays/out of town/lazy) but tonight I'm back on track! These are SO good and easy. I'm hungry just typing about them! http://www.the-girl-who-ate-everything.com/2011/09/slow-cooker-chicken-caesar-sandwiches.html

So glad your mom's house is OK! I checked out those quesadillas and oh my wow... we will be having them next week!

Glad the fire wasn't too bad. I am bad about leaving candles burning and forgetting. Luckily my husband knows that and goes behind me and checks. And I never thought of pineapple on a quesadilla, but that sounds delish.

I am glad to hear that everyone was okay at your Mom's house. That is very scary!

Enjoy the naps...

Do you need any visitors for dinner? I mean, it would be bad if you had leftovers! Haha! Sounds very yummy. I am jealous!

I love seeing your menu plans. They always look delicious (I can't say that about everyone's menu plans :)

#4 was my greatest fear as a child. I won't even leave the dryer on when we're not home. Glad it worked out all right for your mom!

Joy said...

So thankful your mom and family is okay... and their house too!! Terry is Mr blow out the candles at our house. BTW, he hates when I burn one! I'll have one going and not 15 minutes later, I go back in the room and it's been blown out. Sneaky man!

We're having burgers and homemade fries tonight (Championship game tonight means football food), roast and veggies tomorrow night, followed by roast beef sandwiches Wednesday night and homemade spaghetti Thursday night. Friday is up in the air cause it might be date night. =)

Naps sound heavenly, but your body knows you need them. =)

Ewww, bummer about the fire. Our dyer caught fire Nov 2011 and it was AWFUL. We were without a home for months. I'm so glad everyone is ok!

Good lord. I am shamelessly into the Bachelor and last nights episode proved to be hilarious. I don't know if you've ever read the Lost Angeles blog (I just google Lost Angeles- not sure the address) but he blogs about each episode. Totally sarcastically. I feel like all my lost braincells are restored by his genious humor!
