Holy Moly! … haven’t had much time to post, but let’s get started. Been away from the home-front to bond with the g-baby and help mommy out. I have loved every minute of it so much. There’s a lot to be said for small town living. Perks- no traffic jams (comes in at #1), grocery store shopping (#2), I don’t seem to hate shopping at these as much as the ones back home…hmm! Air seem cleaner and no rushing! What a concept!!! And this is about my John Wayne weekend, along with baby and daughter time!
BEST PART… definitely spending time with my kids. I sure do love them!
Here’s some more on the happenings… I started my Friday with a lunch date with a beautiful friend I hadn’t seen in several months. Katie is a gem and we go way back. We met at a church camp and became instant friends. Back to my post though…we dined at the local coffee shop. Catching up was fabulous.
When I had a free day, and by that I mean that I wanted my daughter, SIL and baby to have time to themselves. So I decided to go to John Wayne’s birth place. Some local shopping and other sightseeing AND lots of cooking to leave some prepared meals for the kids so the new mommy can just indulge on the baby!
- lunch date at the Linden Street Coffee Shop

My John Wayne weekend
Want to help a new mommy out? Lots of homemade meals to freeze and store so she doesn’t have to worry about cooking and can just focus on the new addition. Definitely & for sure a great help for a new mommy!
Crock-pot shredded chicken is fab for lots of meals. I made two different casserole dishes. King Ranch & Chicken Broccoli. Super easy and freezable!
And of course lots of this…
