In reality they had none of the salads this week that they ALWAYS have. So here I am, not a salad person, without a clue. I go to where the romaine lettuce is and throw 5 bags into my cart and stand there thinking what am I going to do????? Along comes another woman with 4 bags on lettuce in her cart. So I stopped her. "Are you making a huge Caesar salad by any chance" I ask her. "yes, actually" she replies. So I pick her brain for 5 minutes getting an idea of how much lettuce I need and ending up getting a recipe for Caesar dressing. Apparently she has made the Caesar for their family Christmas dinner Party for 50 people for 10 years. So I take the recipe and decide to buy some dressing at Ralphs. Whoa, show up at ralphs and it is like 10 bucks a bottle for the cheapest big bottle (best price per oz) I need 4 bottles, "oh, no" I think. I was supposed to be doing this for relatively inexpensively. So I take out the recipe written on my supercuts value card and start buying the ingredients and got them all took them home and made my first ever dressing. People even said they liked it. I don't know what I would have done if I had not run into that super nice lady. She could have said yes and went on with her shopping but she stopped and gave me all her tricks. I hope when someone needs me I don't feel overwhelmed by my children and brush them off, or rush away. I hope I am like this lady and make someone else's day a little bit easier.

( Yes there is snow on our hats if you look really hard :) )
During our Layover in Memphis my Dad's sister visited us at the airport. We had lunch and the boys got to Meet Aunt Sharon for the first time. I had not seen her in nearly 9 years. It was so fun to catch up with her a little bit.
My Eskimo child. the temperature never rose above 37 the entire week we were there so every time we went outside it was bitterly cold. Luckily Adam was appropriately dressed
Leaves, leaves, leaves...I take for granted some things in my childhood and leaves are one of those things. My boys have never played in giant piles of leaves until now and they had a blast.
the boys were great on the airplane. I was so worn out, though from entertaining them during the 3-4 hour flights, but no meltdowns or ear problems, just irritation especially from Adam on not getting to walk around for that long.

1. I love wearing hats, any kind of hats. I like small hats , big hats, funny hats, cute hats, and colorful hats. I even wore a hat at my own wedding. I am very jealous that Emily gets to move to England where they have the best hats. I was watching a PBS special on the Monarchy last night and saw some awesome hats. I was born in the wrong time period to the wrong family in the wrong class...apparently (by the way... I love my family)

Of course, I under estimated what a hit these would be and had to whip one up for Adam as soon as he woke up.
