Random nothingness!

Not a whole lot going on here! Looking forward to 3:10pm today when school is out for a week!! We've got some fun plans for the days off!

We got a pancake puff pan last week. Have you seen that infomercial? The kids love it and have wanted one, so when we saw it at Boscov's, we had to buy it!

It does make a yummy puff, but definately better with plain batter!! The blueberry ones didn't get totally done all the way through.

My favorite Tastycake of all time is in the stores right now!!

I feel bad for the parts of the country that don't have Tastycakes!! Hippity Hops are to die for!!! Dangerous, I tell ya!!

Jack and I made Irish Soda Bread yesterday for St. Patrick's Day. I can never get a smooth disc out of the dough, so it's always lumpy on the outside but oh so yummy on the inside!

Here he is testing it out!

Notice his nice haircut? Yeah, that's courtesy of Macy's Beauty Salon! She takes walk-ins and is free of charge!

Jack had a modified preschool day today from 11-12:30. Chris and I went out for lunch while he was there.

Friday we are hopefully going to pick up our camper! Yay!! Then we can start planning our first long weekend in April! Super exciting!!

Still waiting on a kitchen start date!! This is such a long process!! I just want it to be done!!

I'll leave you with this layout. Didn't turn out quite like I hoped, kinda blah feeling to me so I'll probably end up scrapping these pics again in the future!

Have a great week!!

LOL @ the haicut review!

We don't have Tastykakes around here but my uncle brings my grandma a suitcase full everytime he comes to visit. The Jelly Krimpets are my favorite. I've never had the Easter cakes! I'll have to request them for the next visit!
