WWW ~ Busy Busy Weekend & Birthday Wishes

I'm pooped this was a VERY busy weekend no down time or naps for mom ... lol. And today is my 34 Birthday!!! Yippeee ... hehe with Rick still not having a full time job I doubt I will get my birthday wishes. I think I will make myself a low fat Strawberry Cheesecake. And I'll add my fitness wants to Christmas. I'm also saving my penny for my cute uggs, I'm like $30 away!!!

On the wish list!
I so begging for this!
My cute shoes to come soon!
Poor little Caden hair was looking crazy. Love the bed head? Rick took him for a haircut :(
The quilt is DONE!!! 2 Extra trips to the store we finally finished!! It looks so beautiful and I wanted to keep .. but I packed it up and shipped it off! The quilt is a thank you gift to my bosses for everything they have done for us. (hopefully she's behind on reading my blog ... surprise)
We tied it instead of stitching for time but I think it looks beautiful! With Shipping it came to about a $100 and 4 weekends of working on it. Now I know why these go for like $300, they are worth it people buy it. I can't tell you how much work goes into making one! THANK YOU Rachael for helping me, you're amazing!!! Hehe that's Rachael goofing around under it!
Sunday we went to church and then we head to the Rainers Game for a early Father's Day with the church. My neighbor came along with us, it was a lot of fun. Cole couldn't sit but he did pretty good. He had to sit with his Sunday School Teacher (the pastors wife) a few times. He really loves her! Sad Rick had a interview so he couldn't go but we still had fun. And yes Caden knocked his head once again and had a big bruise. Poor kid has my balance.
And of course after being gone 8 hours on Sunday I came home and baked cookies! I know I'm nuts.

Banana Oatmeal Cookie

Banana Oatmeal Cookies


  • 1 1/2 cups sifted all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 3/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 3/4 cup shortening
  • 1 cup white sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 cup mashed bananas
  • 1 3/4 cups quick cooking oats
  • 1/2 cup chopped nuts


  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C).
  2. Sift together the flour, baking soda, salt, nutmeg and cinnamon.
  3. Cream together the shortening and sugar; beat until light and fluffy. Add egg, banana, oatmeal and nuts. Mix well.
  4. Add dry ingredients, mix well and drop by the teaspoon on ungreased cookie sheet.
  5. Bake at 400 degrees F (200 degrees C) for 15 minutes or until edges turn lightly brown. Cool on wire rack. Store in a closed container.

ALEXIS NOTES: I made a double batch, and used half whole wheat and white. No nuts. They baked up light and fluffy almost like a muffin. I would only do 11 - 12 minutes.

  2. Happy Birthday! I just quit my job as well, so my birthday wishes weren't on there. I did get my Keurig tree. I could ask the sponsor of KettleWorx if he is looking for anymore reviewers. It's kicking my butt! The quilt is beautiful. Have a wonderful day:)
