Conference Magnets



Okay, before anyone thinks that I did these,
I'll confess that I didn't. I had nothing to do with them, unfortunately.
(I only WISH I had thought of it.)
One of our neighbors dropped them by today.
There are 38 quotes from this last conference,
all individually laminated
with magnets glued on the back.
How awesome is this?!
Especially on a day when you've had a migraine for two days
and your hubby is WAY STRESSED about work.

What awesome neighbors.

Pretty in Pink

The men of this family each had a tag for one of these.
Alas, they didn't get one of these.
But they did get to go here:


Coral Pink Sand Dunes.
They are beautiful in their own right.

Opportunities

This is a concept pic of the new Airbus A350,
set to compete with Boeing's Dreamliner.

What has it got to do with us?
Jeff just got a new assignment at work--
as a Master Scheduler for parts for this new plane.

It's a lot of work, but an exciting opportunity!
Aside from that, the only other thing I can really say about it
is that my hubby is AWESOME.

Homemade Kettle Corn

I made two batches of this tonight...the first recipe I thought could be improved upon, so I tweaked it and made my own. The second turned out AWESOME!

Homemade Kettle Corn

Pop 1/2 c. of corn kernals and set aside.
In a saucepan, combine 2 T. oil, 2 T. water, and 2/3 c. white sugar. Stir as it comes to a boil. Just before it boils, throw in 2 T. butter and melt it in. When it boils, set your timer for 3 1/2 minutes, and let it simmer. Remove from heat and pour over popcorn while stirring popcorn. It will appear to clump together, but keep stirring and as it cools it will not clump anymore. Don't forget to salt it!
