Show and Tell Tuesday & Tuesday Talk


Happy Tuesday friends.  I hope your week is off to a great start.  Today is Tuesday Talk and Show and Tell Tuesday.  I thought I would tackle both today because it's my blog and I can.  

I have been wanting to share a post for a while about some of our favorites from Sam's Club.  We are big fans of Sam's Club and we are frequent shoppers.

I've shared some of my favorites in the past but I'm going to share a lot of them here.  

If you didn't know, the samples can get you in trouble.  Greg had a meeting one Sunday afternoon so Carson and I went shopping on our own and sampled some pulled pork.  We have been hooked ever since. 

We also love these Egg Rolls.  They are individually wrapped and we love to heat them in the oven.  They get good and crispy.
Greg gets all of his protein powder and bars from Sam's Club.  We eat a lot of fruit in our house so getting blueberries and strawberries from Sam's just makes sense.  

Last fall when I was making the 90 pans of cinnamon rolls, I was thankful for the giant bags of powdered sugar.  

It is no secret that I could live off of chips, salsa and queso.  It is my favorite.  Pair it with some tacos and I'm all set.  I think it is my guilty pleasure snack of choice.  And here are two of my favorite things from  Sam's to make that happen.  

What are some of your must haves from Sam's?  We are always looking for new things to try.

I'll see you all next week.  I'm taking the rest of the week off.  

Weekend Recap: Carson's Point of View


Happy Monday friends!  I hope you had a great weekend.  I'm pretty excited that it is Monday and that I only work 2 days this week.  I took off Wednesday-Friday so I'm going to take a break from blogging on those days too.  

Here is a peek into our weekend from Carson's point of view.

Friday morning we took our time getting ready.  All is well when we have our stuffed animals and sippy cup.

Greg got home late from work on Friday night so we enjoyed a quiet night at home.
We ran errands on Saturday morning but we had to stop for breakfast at Chick-fil-A on the way.  He was excited.  Daddy was excited for the free egg white grill that Mommy had on her app.
Carson checked out everything at Home Depot.
And entertained himself at Target.
He enjoyed his frozen pizza lunch.

While he napped, Daddy took some pictures of a huge praying mantis in our bushes.

We had fun with Snapchat filters before church.
Sunday morning we enjoyed our Eggo waffle.
And we were already bored of Mommy by 7:30 in the morning.  
We were excited to go to church.
We were all excited about our Chipotle pickup after church.
Apparently lunch can wait.  Sunday mornings make for a sleepy boy.  We played all afternoon with Grammy, Pappy, Mema and Uncle Josh.
Before eating pasta, breadsticks and a little crayon.
Before ending our weekend with popsicles.  

We hope you had a great weekend!  See you tomorrow.  

Friday Favorites


Happy Friday friends.  This week has proven that fall is coming.  We have had some nice mild temps and work has picked back up.  That means students will be here soon for classes.  I'm so happy it is Friday and that next week is a short work week for me.  
I'm linking up with Andrea, Erika and Narci for Friday Favorites.

We have loved our nice weather and have enjoyed some time outside.  
Evening rides in our wagon are everyone's favorite.  That smile melts my heart.

We have also been practicing our baseball swing.  Which team will be his favorite?  Right now, we may want to work on that swing and my pitching skills.

We all loved our Ciabatta Pizzas this week.  Pizza is always a favorite at our house and this little twist on them was a winner.
I've been in a movie watching mood lately and I decided to pull out a classic and lucky for me it reminds me of one of my favorite states with some of my favorite people.
How can you not love this movie?  
These candles are definitely a favorite.   My problem is waiting to use them.  I'm going to hold out til September but it is not easy.  Fall and thoughts of fall have been my favorite part of this week.

My absolute favorite this week was seeing this teaser trailer yesterday.

I hope you all have a wonderful weekend!  
Linking up with Carolina Charm for 5 on Friday.  

Ciabatta Pizzas


Normally Tuesday is Taco night at our house but last night we opted for pizza instead.  I had some ciabatta rolls in my freezer and decided to make that our crust.  Let me just say we will do it again.  Yummy.

 We used hot italian sausage and pepperoni for our pizzas.  

I sliced open each ciabatta roll, spooned a few spoons of pizza sauce on it, and then each roll had 4 pepperonis and a few spoons of sausage.  I finished it off with some pizza blend cheese.  
Ready to bake for about 15 minutes at 375 degrees.
The edges were good and crispy!  We all loved them.  
He was focused on watching ESPN.  

We will make these again.  Quick, easy, and quite tasty.  

I'm Ready for You Fall


My calendar says it is August but September is coming!  I can't wait.  Fall is my favorite time of the year.  It's not a competition.  I love Christmas but not winter.  Fall is the best on all fronts.  

If you are like me and you like fall, you probably have done some of the following.  

You may have purchased some candles in your favorite fall scents from Bath and Body Works.
You may have done some online shopping for some new fall clothes during the Anniversary Sale or other stores. 

You may have looked all over Pinterest for new soup recipes.

You may have checked the dates on the cinnamon and pumpkin pie spices in your cupboard to see if you need new ones.  

You may have ordered new football gear for the little one because the shirts they wore last year don't fit anymore and well it's football.

You may have also went to Michaels and Hobby Lobby looking through all of their fall stuff.  

No, just me.  I doubt that.  We are less than a month until my house will look and smell like fall.  Oh happy day.
