Mardi Gras!!!

"Laissez les bons temps rouler!"

I don't know how many of y'all know that it's Mardi Gras time!!! We started celebrating this weekend. I just love this time of year!!! First we went to eat some crawfish because it just isn't Mardi Gras without crawfish!! Then we headed to Galveston...

We were supposed to go to the Seawall and watch the parade, but plans changed and we just headed to the Strand. We had any amazing time! We met up with Justin's brother and a bunch of our friends.

We ate a ton of food, drank some beers, caught some beads, and danced in the street!!!

We also watch a band call Neon Trees. They were really good!!!

(This is Amanda!!! This is my favorite pic of the night! Ha!)

We plan on taking the boys to the Fat Tuesday Parade (which we've been doing for the past 9 years)! They just love Mardi Gras and all those beads!!! Hope y'all are having a great Monday!!!

What I'm Lovin'

This week I am lovin' me some Garanimals. If you don't know what they are, they are Walmart's brand of children's clothing.

The best part is that they only cost $3.50 per shirt or shorts. I stocked up on them for this summer for Evan. So for under $50 I got 9 shirts and 4 pairs of shorts!!!

I can't see spending a ton of money on clothing for a toddler, especially a boy!!! All mother's of boys know how they love to tear up their clothes and how they grow like weeds!

(He wanted me to take of pic of him too!)

So what are y'all lovin' this week or what kind of clothes do you buy your kiddos?! Hope y'all have a great Friday & weekend!!!

Best Chicken & Dumplings!

I found this recipe awhile back and fell in love! First it's a crock pot recipes, so it's soooooo easy! Second it taste just like the chicken & dumplings my Nannie used to make. Yuuuuuuummmm!
So here you go...hope you try it and fall in love too!!!


  • 4 skinless, boneless chicken breast halves (or leftover chicken)
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 2 (10.75 ounce) cans condensed cream of chicken soup
  • 1 onion, finely diced
  • 2 (10 ounce) packages refrigerated biscuit dough, torn into pieces
  • chicken broth


  1. Place the chicken, butter, soup, and onion in a slow cooker, and fill with enough chicken broth to cover.
  2. Cover, and cook for 5 to 6 hours on High. About 60 minutes before serving, place the torn biscuit dough in the slow cooker. Cook until the dough is no longer raw in the center.

See I told you it was easy-peasy!!! Hope y'all have a great Thursday!!!

Celebration Weekend!

Today is Jaxon's birthday. He is 6!!! I'll post pic of today tomorrow...

This weekend was so much fun. Friday night we went to Chuck E. Cheese for Justin's cousin's children's birthday (wow sounds a little like Ferris Bueller)! The boys had a blast. They love that place, but what kid doesn't?!

Justin's brother & wife came also. They brought their adorable little baby, Wyatt. It was so funny...Justin kept picking on him and he would stick out his bottom lip and make a sad face!

Saturday was our 11th anniversary (together, not marriage). We went to eat at Chuy's (Mexican restaurant, duh!) and then headed home to get ready for our friends, Kevin & Laura's wedding.

We had so much fun. The wedding was beautiful. After the wedding a group of us went to a few bars/clubs and hung out in Galveston.

We had an amazing weekend!!! Hope y'all did to & happy Tuesday!!!
