I got something new today

I bought myself a gift today. Was it a new bugaboo stroller, a gift certificate for a spa, or a new china cabinet? All of these things I would love to have right now but it was none of these.

Ladies and Gentleman, drumroll please, it was a locking gas cap. Yes, you just read correctly. A LOCKING GAS CAP!!!! Someone stole 5 gallons of gas out of my dad's car last night. It was sitting right in front of our house. Can you believe that??? Our mechanic ordered it for me today and luckily they had one in stock at our local parts shop. I now have an extra key on each ring.

What is the world coming to???

Hope everyone has a great weekend!

Psssssst will change your life!

Psssssst is amazing. It's one of my new favorite beauty products. I used it today at lunch to freshen up b/c I washed my hair last night.

You have got to run out and get some!!!

Is my memory that good?

Last night I was sleeping peacefully at 9:25pm. I heard my phone ring but I decided not to answer it because I was already sleeping really well and I didn't feel like getting up to answer it. Then, about 1 minute later I hear Boots start to bark and Justin walks into the bedroom with the phone in his hand. I hear him say to me, "It's your sister on the phone." I instantly panic. She never calls both of our phones. Are the kids okay? Has David been in a wreck? Is their house on fire? I say hello and she says, "Hi! I'm sorry to wake you but do you remember how much I pay my housekeeper? She's coming tomorrow and I can't remember." My jaw dropped! I said, " pay her $100.00 in cash." She replies, "Thanks...that's what I thought but I couldn't remember for sure." We both say goodbye and Justin wants to know if everything was okay. I explain the conversation to him and he thought it was really scary that I knew the amount and my sister didn't.

I guess the reason I'm blogging about this is because my entire family has always teased me because I seem to misplace things a lot. My sister has always been the worst about it. Well, I guess she can't make fun anymore. I may be a little scatter brained at times but my memory is like a steel trap!

p.s. I would post a picture of Delilah and me but I can't remember where I put the latest one...

Has anyone heard of this?

Okay...I need help with a beauty product. Has anyone heard of the dry shampoo called Pssssst? Jessica Simpson swears by it. I really want to try it because little Chase is making my hair so oily. I read reviews on the product and everyone seems to love it. If anyone out there knows about it, please comment and let me know. I am dying to see how it works. Also, it says to spray it in your hair and then fluff. What exactly does that mean? Please also leave a comment on that as I am confused about "fluffing."

2 against 1 wins, right?

My dad is in town this week to visit Justin and me in Alpine. We are having a really good time. I was going over what meals to cook this week on Sunday night and it hit dad and I love meatloaf. Justin, on the other hand, tells me that the only thing that should be in a loaf is bread. Well, we outvoted Justin. We get to have meatloaf tonight. I have the best recipe ever. It is from my grandmother. I am going to reveal it to everyone for their dining pleasure.

1 pound lean ground beef
1 cup old fashioned oats
1/2 cup milk
1/2 cup chopped onions (I use the already chopped ones that you get in the freezer section)
1 egg, slightly beaten
2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce
1 teaspoon garlic salt
1/8 teaspoon pepper

3 tablespoons brown sugar
3 tablespoons ketchup
1 1/2 teaspoon mustard

Heat oven to 350. In a large bowl, combine all ingredients and mix well with your hands. Put into a loaf pan that has been sprayed with Pam. Mix topping in a bowl and spread on top of the meatloaf. Bake for 40 to 50 minutes. Let stand 10 minutes. Makes 6 to 8 servings.

On a side note, I woke up this morning feeling light headed. I decided to just eat my morning yogurt and get some apple juice at the gas station. It went away about 20 minutes after I ate. I am so proud of myself. I didn't freak out and call Delilah with all my symptoms and beg her to tell me what was wrong with me. She should be so proud. Her little sis is learning to deal with pregnancy issues on her own! Too bad I only have 17.5 weeks left!

Justin in Home!!!

Justin is home after being gone for 16 days! I missed him so much. I have to show off the little leather shoes that he got Chase in Argentina. They are so cute. I can't wait until he can wear them!

Who's ready for a pool party?

I had to share a picture of these swim trunks that we got as a gift for Chase Landon. I can't wait to have him in the pool next summer! Justin thinks he will be big enough for his first cruise next summer. What is he thinking???
