Holy Houseflies!

So yesterday was beautiful. We were in and out all day long... sunshine and flowers and all that beautiful spring jazz! Until this morning. Somehow we have about two million house flies! So disgusting! I've been on a rampage all day. I think I've killed about 10 and there are a few that are just too sneaky to get under my fly swatter. Who knew spring could be so cruel.

Breakfast with Bacon

Inspired to have breakfast with bacon this morning. Here I present my sandwich from the bottom up:
Toasted white bread, cheddar cheese, crispy bacon, sauteed onions, thick slice of tomato, salt, pepper, iceberg lettuce, mayo & toasted white bread. It was delicious!

Beach in October

We usually get some nice weather in October...but this day is exceptional! The water has a little chill...but not uncomfortablly so. Sun and sand memories to help make it through the winter.

Eat Your Broccoli!

I found the most awesome way to get my preteen boy to eat his broccoli. I assured him it would give him gas. If you know any boys in the 11 year old know the attraction. :)

Dealing at Staples

I think my favorite store in the world is Staples. (Harris Teeter is a close second.) So, for our tax free school supply shopping I went to town! I got all the stuff pictured plus a 20 pack of toilet paper and a backpack for less than $97! (the phone dock/clock was 30 something by itself!) There were a few things not tax free, but still good deals. Combined with a few deals I picked up earlier this summer, we should be set for school supplies plus paper crafting for the daycare for a nice long while.

Beach view

I was mowing the grass and getting ready to take a swim in our pool when I got a call from Mr. S. He was missing a part he needed to finish up a house and asked me to run it over to him.  I figured I should make the most out of a trip across the bridge, and gathered up the kids and the beach bag. The water is a little chilly but very clear. Enjoy the view from my beach umbrella!
