We’re coming out of a pretty great weekend. Friday was Walt’s and my 10 year wedding anniversary. We had always said we’d like to spend our 10 year anniversary in Italy but life had other plans for us and that’s OK, maybe we’ll be able to do it for our 15th. It was a great day without Italy, Walt surprised me and took the day off so we could spend it together and go out for dinner. Having him home was a nice surprise.
Saturday we went and picked up a few pumpkins and Sunday was dedicated to flag football, even in the rain. This year Joshua’s on the “Lions” and they won 32 to 14, so far they are 3-0 for the season…Way to go Lions!! Coming home from the game Sunday to Mississippi Pot Roast in the slow cooker and homemade Hershey Chocolate Pie made the end of our weekend perfect.
Now we’re back to Monday. Today Nikki has orientation for new job, so proud of how she’s handled all of the changes her life has gone through over the last few months. I get to take Eric to school today, be prepared Nikki, if he cries we’re outta there!!
On a good note, the count down to my next weekend begins; 4 days, 24-30 hours. I know, I have it rough. Today I’m going to leave you with a recipe for slow cooker sweet ribs. They are not Walt’s smoked, slow grilled baby back ribs but they are moist and tasty, perfect with a side of homemade cole slaw on fall or winter day.
