PostHeaderIcon Jenn: Random & a Recipe

  • Last night we had a girls night out - PJ's at Cara's house with popcorn, candy, cake & wine and watched a couple of movies - very fun - thanks to our charming hostess for staying awake with us till 1:00 am LOL.
  • Today Lu is taking her very first ballet class! She has been BUGGING me for over a year now and since there is one at the same time as her sister at the new studio we shall try it - don't know if she will stick to it since she doesn't seem to stick to anything!
  • The "big snow" isn't much - really thankful for that... not feeling like shoveling today!
  • Hubby moving furniture out of Aunt Muriels house and into mine. Getting a complete dining room set - I think I will miss my big empty dance floor.
  • Today is one of those days where I have to go go go so I am off!
  • Have a great Saturday... here is a recipe you might enjoy;
