My appointment with Lenscrafter’s today was at 3pm. I got home at 730pm! I went in for an eye exam; new glasses; and to be fitted for contact lenses. I wear tri-focals, so I was real curious as to whether or not they were going to agree to fit me for contact lenses. They did agree to fit me for lenses, but it took FOUR tries to find the one that should work. At least, I am hoping they are going to work!
My daughter Heather and two of my grandchildren, Alaina and Kyler, were here for the weekend. She got here Friday night, and just went home this morning. It was a nice weekend. She’s trying her hardest to find a car to buy. She has our old mini-van that is on its leg, so she needs one pretty bad. Wednesday is her birthday, and it “looks” like she may have found one and could be picking it up on WEDNESDAY!! :) What a nice birthday present to herself, huh? :) I really hope she gets the one she wants.
Sunday was on our youngest Grandson’s birthday. Jayden turned 4 years old! It sure doesn’t seem possible that he is 4 already! He had his birthday at Chuck E Cheese. He had a great time, but there were two other birthday parties going on right next to his, and he got a bit overwhelmed with it all. It came time to blow out his candle, and he was just “lost”!! Poor thing had so many people pulling him in so many directions, and giving him so many instructions, he just froze! It was kind of cute, but I felt bad for him, too. We helped him blow out his candles, and then it was time for the gifts! Now THAT he got into!! LOL He loved his gifts! It was really cute as he opened each gift and then said thank you to those that gave him the gifts. He is just a cutie pie!
Tomorrow night I am going to the FFA Auction here at our local high school. They will be auctioning off the bird house that one of the FFA kids made, and my husband painted. The kid, Devan, was so thrilled with how the painting turned out. Gary, my husband, did such a good job with it.
So, Molly & Jason are getting married tonight. Remember them? From the Bachelor show? He dumps one girl and goes for another, after he had already proposed to the first girl! Not only that, but he dumps the first girl on National Television in front of MILLIONS of people!!
From what I am seeing tonight though, they both made the right choice to be together! In the middle of their wedding, the rain just POURED down in buckets….on their outside wedding!! Poor things were just drenched! Everyone else had umbrella’s except for the bride and groom! But they smiled throughout the whole thing! Gotta love ’em!
Better get off of here for now….but you guessed it, before I go, I would like to share a recipe with you! I hope you enjoy this recipe as much as we did!
