What's going on in Blogland today?!?!?!?

I decided that today's post would be a bunch of things together....oh wait, isn't that what my posts are usually like anyway????

Oh forget it, nothing special then, just the usual blabbing coming from little ol' me.

I have noticed that a lot of my blogging friends pick a theme and stick with it, creating these great posts which make it easy to comment and reply to. Then you have me, I write like I talk in real life, and when I'm with friends, I have a lot to say, usually about a lot of things, not just one in particular. What can I say??? I'm multi-faceted!!!

There's a couple things going on in blogland today though, so I want to start by mentioning those.

If you love cooking and recipes, please check my post below for "Slow Cooking Thursday", there's so many great recipes being shared today, just take a minute to go see them, or share one of your favorites too, would love to have you play along :)

BTW our dinner last night was delicious....Crab Cakes served with a Tomato Rice. The kids loved it too and ate it all up with no complains and no "101 questions".

  • What's this?
  • Can I eat it?
  • What is that red thing?
  • Is this meat or fish?
  • I can't eat brocolli it makes my stomach hurt!
It was great not having all those questions for once. I don't know, my kids have never been picky but I've noticed that as they get older, they really do start being fussy about food.

If you are a book lover like me, then I know that you must be surrounded by books everywhere, and those TBR piles are probably looking pretty overwhelming right now.
Well Katrina, over at Callapider Days is hosting a great "Fall into Reading" feature, starting today you list the books you want to read between September 23rd and December 21st. Go here if you want to read the lists being posted, including mine :)

Something else coming up the beginning of next month, on the 2nd of October actually, is another fun feature being hosted by "Overwhelmed with Joy", I'm sure you know her from the Five Ingredients Friday meme. Well this time she is asking us to share Holiday Recipes.....How neat is that????

You know me, just mention food, recipes, cookbooks or cooking, and I'm ALL there. Here's a peek at her fun header, so don't forget to play along :)

Yesterday I ran by the Airman's Attic to drop off a ton of clothes that don't fit anymore, most of them still new with the tags attached. I don't know, I just can't seem to keep up with the kids growing.

Anyway, I walked in and my eyes immediately went to a pile of fabric scraps, or that's what I thought, turned out that some were small pieces and others were 1 or 2 yards. LOVE IT!!!
I don't know what I'm going to make yet.

Jasmine has an Early Release Day, which means they get out earlier. Before I pick her up though, I still have to get gas in the car. Am I the only woman who likes driving but cringes at the thought of gasing up??? I don't know what it is, I just get so annoyed having to even think of going there, is it the prices (though I'm sure those make men and women cringe), the actual getting out of the car, the prospect that AGAIN the machine won't take accept my card and make me go inside....which means, dragging a 3 year old in and dodging the candy aisles???

All I know is that when I start getting low on gas, I start dropping hints to the hubby, in the hopes that he will kindly offer to go do it for me.

I also need to run to the bank and make a deposit. I think the rainy weather is making me lazy, maybe that's why I like Fall and Winter so much, I have an excuse not to go out LOL

Anyway, I better get going, there's things to do and people to see and all that fun stuff.


We're having Parmesan Chicken and Mashed Potatoes, with some green beans on the side. For dessert, the kids want Chocolate Mousse, hey it's fast and easy and good, so why not right?


Starting my "Fall Into Reading" Book


  1. Everyone has their own blogging style and I happen to really like yours. You kind of run us through your whole day. Some people, like me, tend to post on one subject. Hmmmm. I wonder if that's why people think I sit around all day with nothing to do but admire my asparagus fern. :-)

    I can't wait to come back tonight after the baby's gone and look at all the links in the slow cooker post. I'm always on the lookout for good recipes for my crockpot.

    And thanks for the tip about Overwhelmed With Joy's Christmas recipe meme. What a great idea. I hadn't gotten there yet.

    Don't worry - we all obviously love your blogging style. We sure keep coming back to visit!

  2. Those fabric scraps look AWESOME! I *love* stuff like that! I was just in a fabric swap online. Let us know what you end up making! :)

  3. Nothing wrong with your blogging style that I can see. Keep it up.

    Oh the recipes.....I just keep printing them off from everyone else's blogs because they sound so good and I need some inspiration. I used to cook every day, but when empty nest hit, it just lost some of the fun. It's easier to wing it. Or go out.... :)

    Have fun with the fabrics. What a great find!

  4. I hate gassing up the car!!! Oh, that sounded like I was inside the car gassing it up huh? like I was tooting. LOL! I mean, I hate putting gas into the car!! It's a big pain in the rear...and now I have a baby, and that means, that if she's with me, I have to take her out of the car seat (Cuz I'm not lugging that thing aroung with me) and take her inside to pay. It's a huge hassel!!!

  5. I like your blogging style. Don't change!

    Blogland has become it's own world hasn't it.

    Have a good weekend.


  6. I like your blogging style too - I imagine that's how you are in real life too :)

    There sure is a lot going on in the blogging world!

  7. Another Grey's Anatomy fan! Why do I love that show so much???

  8. Oh Sandy,
    I should have left you every scrap of fabric I had, Not like I can even find a momement to sew! Tell Curt and the kids hi for us. Sydney wants to know when we can move back so she can play with HER Nicholas! Miss you guys and Mtn Home!

  9. I like your posts, Sandra! They're chatty - I feel like I've been on the phone with you, just chatting while we wash the breakfast dishes.

  10. Sandra, you're the best! Thanks so much for mentioning my upcoming "Holiday Cooking, Blogger Style" recipe exchange. I do appreciate it!

    As for your writing style, I love it. I feel as though I'm sitting across the table from you having a great chat. Don't change a thing, okay?

  11. Sandra, the crabcakes look and sound soo scrumptous! You scored big with the fabric swatches...isn't that exciting. Can't wait to see what you do with it all. I have been enjoying reading all the recipes for the slowcooker; may even have to revive it from the depths of my pantry. lol Very nice.

  12. Your style is so YOU! I like it!!

  13. I love that you are all over the place. It makes it fun and interesting.

    Those looked really good. I really should try more cooking.

  14. That cartoon at top was hilarious. And just as everyone has their own blogger style- you have yours!
