Spring Break & Then Some! May 1, 2011

Ok… I know, I know… I have been seriously slacking in the blogging department, but I just haven’t had the time and really haven’t felt like it! But, that is all going to change because I have also been feeling very guilty about not blogging!

I really don’t know how many readers I have, but those that have subscribed and have commented that you read, I want you to know that I appreciate the time you take to spend with me 🙂 and I’ll be giving you more of that!

Well, enough with the “excuses”! It’s time to get down to it!!!

Here is what has been going on with us! {in pics}

As you can see between sewing, life and entertaining my 2 youngest sisters through their spring break I haven’t had the time/energy to blog!

Well that’s it for now & see you soon!!!

Love,

Amanda

This week has been a pretty good one {looking back}. We have had lots of fun and family time. 🙂

Tuesday Ana and I were supposed to go to a playdate at a park about 30 min. from us but… let’s just say she didn’t want to get up! So we went to a park closer and ran errands instead. It was still lots of fun, and I got to chat with a nice mom while we were at the park too! 🙂

Wednesday we stayed home, but Ana had some things in mind for us as soon as we got up (you’ll see in the pics). 😉

Thursday (yesterday) we went downtown! Thursdays in G’ville’s beautiful downtown is Downtown Alive! Live music and local vendors on the street! It was great :). Not many vendors yesterday, but I’m sure as the season warms up there will be more and more! We also tried (and loved) another mexican restaurant, this one downtown (of course)!

Today (Friday) my grandma Pat and papaw Larry came down! Papaw cleaned up my yard (mowed and weed-eated), while mamaw put another perm in my hair! 🙂 (It was way overdue… both things!) And finally, tomorrow my in-laws are coming back down for more food and fun! 😀

Yep it’s been a great week, and it’s looking like a great weekend!

Hope your’s is fabulous too!

Family fun & FOOD!!!! March 12, 2011

Thankfully I am finally starting to feel human again!

Last night We went on a family fun date! I wanted Italian food SO bad {specifically a cannoli}, so we found a little italian restaurant and fell in love! This place was small, but authentic and the prices were unbelievably low! I decided on a small {actually quite large} greek salad and a slice of Sicilian pizza with spinach, mushrooms, and tomatoes! Joseph got a small {read HUGE} calzone stuffed with onions, mushrooms, sausage and other things that I simply cannot remember, for Ana we chose baked ravioli, and to start us all off we tried their cheese bread!!!

You wouldn’t believe the food! Everything was beyond good…. I can’t begin to find an adjective to fit it… The cheese bread melted in our mouths, the marinara was perfect {and I am extremely picky about my marinara}, my Sicilian “slice” was huge and amazing {Sicilian pizza has focaccia crust), Joseph’s calzone was superb, and Ana’s raviolis were huge and delicious!!!

 Of course we had to have dessert! For Daddy and miss priss it was chocolate chip cookies, and for me it was cannolis!!!! Yes I said cannolis (plural). 😛 I intended on just getting one, but they just had to offer regular and chocolate covered cannoli shells… So I decided on one of each, but in the mini size… didn’t happen… they were out of mini chocolate cannolis and my sweet hubby (who got them at the counter while I waited at the table) didn’t want to bring me back one tiny cannoli! {Sometimes I think he wants me fluffy, lol} Long story short everything about our meal was FABULOUS!

Afterward we went to see Rango… We were not at all happy with this movie and wouldn’t advise anyone on seeing it. There was nothing to it for the first 30-45 minutes, and once it finally started (being interesting) I began hearing a word slipped in here and there… Not what I wanted out of a cartoon. It was also kind of scary to be a kids movie. If I had it to do over again I think we would have seen Gnomeo & Juliet

I think my favorite part of the movie was before it actually began. Ana turned around and looked at her daddy and said {so seriously} ” I wan pa-torn”… We both bust out laughing and our poor child just looked at us like she couldn’t believe we thought this was a laughing matter! Of course her daddy got her some “pa-torn” (after we made her say it a few more times and got all of our kicks in), which we wnjoyed with our cookies and cannolis that I snuck in via my big bag! (What? Concessions are outrageous these days!)

All in all it was a pretty good night, and I learned a valueable lesson, Always look up a movies reviews before going to see it…

Also this evening out broought back to the front of our minds the desire that we share to open our own Italian restaurant! My husbands family is Italian and I may as well be as much as I love the food! (We even named our restaurant! Sorry not sharing the name…) 😉

Here are a few pictures of food {like what we had}, and from the movie. (Sorry, this isn’t actually what we ate, I forgot to take pictures.)
