So much to write about


I have so much to write about today. First things first, I am so excited that Kristy Lee Cook was booted from AI last night. She needed to go about 6 weeks ago. Also, did anyone else cry when David Cook performed? I loved his rendition of "Always Be My Baby" by Mariah Carey. I really would like for him to win the entire competition.

Justin got home after being gone for 7 days. It felt like an eternity! I am so glad to have my husband, best friend, and office mate back. I get so sentimental these days. I am blaming it on the hormones.

My good friends, Daine and Karina, found out that they will be having a little girl in late August/early September. I am so excited for them.

I have had an insane need to bake lately. I love sweets, but I only will keep one of what I bake and then give the rest to friends. They have told me I have got to stop. My motto is, "If I'm going to gain weight...we are ALL going to gain weight." In the last week I have baked, 32 peanut butter cup brownie cupcakes(thanks, Paula Deen), 37 pecan pralines, a dozen lemon bars, 2 dozen M&M/chocolate chip cookies, and a tray of Mississippi mud. I have got to get this under control or I won't have any friends left.

I have a new job title at the office. I would like to be called the "Tree Farm Specialist" from now on. Justin brought back 3 Monterey Oak trees from Texas Landfill Management's tree farm. Justin's dad wanted us to see if we could sell them out here. We have three and everyone wants one. I didn't realize that trees were so popular!

I hope everyone is doing well. So long for now.

I have a good recipe for you that involves Reese's Peanut Butter cups. I will email it to you. Have you baked anything gluten free? Have to think of the minority. Lots of hugs and kisses. Aunt Judy

wow, that was a lot to catch up on. I was SO happy little miss country was booted from AI. I would be angry every week after the show b/c she did not deserve to stay that long!
