A Few Things on a Saturday


It's Saturday!  We finally made it to the weekend!  Here's a few random things on a Saturday. 

1.  It snowed at my house yesterday and a bit last night.  I'm beginning to feel some holiday spirit! This is my view out my back door this morning. 

2.  Do you have your Thanksgiving menu planned yet?  I don't.  I need to though.  We're spending Thanksgiving at home by ourselves this year.  I need to sit down with my family and decide what they want to eat since we won't be having company this year.  Unless any family (hint, hint) would like to come visit.  :)

I typed up my Thanksgiving turkey recipe last year.  It's my tried and true way to make a turkey!

We'll be making these cloud light crescent rolls.  They are my favorite rolls (my one hour roll recipe runs a close second place) and so easy to make!  You mix them up and roll them out all at once, then they rise until you're ready to bake.  Perfect for a busy Thanksgiving day!

What will you be making this year?  I could use some inspiration, especially in the dessert department.


3.  My cell phone screen died this week.  (I'm one of the few people that doesn't have a smart phone and I'm okay with that!  I don't even text on my phone.  I text on my tablet using google voice for free.)  Anyway...my cell phone had a little run in with the van door a few weeks ago adn yesterday the screen was totally unreadable. 

I wish I would have backed up my contacts first, since it's impossible to do without a screen to look at.  Ha! I'm using my old flip phone and I'm actually loving it!  I might not get a new phone.  My flip phone (as retro as it is) seems pretty indestructible. 


4.  My little baby guy turned 11 months this week!  He finally has four tiny little teeth and can stand up by himself for a few seconds.  People stop me wherever I am and comment about how huge is eyes are. 

4.  My baby refuses to eat baby food from a jar anymore.  He loves those little baby food pouches though.  They're pricey, but I figure that he's getting straight fruit and veggies, so I guess it's worth it.  I saw these refillable pouches on Amazon the other day.  Have you tried them?








5.  Speaking of Amazon...I think Amazon Prime would be the perfect Christmas present.  I'd much rather buy things online these days, than take the one hour drive to Target.  I had a free trial of Prime a little while ago and loved it, especially the 2 day shipping part. Do you use Amazon Prime?  Or are you lucky to live enough close to shopping?


All righty...that's what I've been doing lately.  What's on your mind this Saturday?

  1. 1. We have snow here, too!

    2. I just went shopping today for Thanksgiving. We're also doing Thanksgiving by ourselves. We're having ham this year (and possibly turkey, too, if I can figure out how to do that with one oven)! I'm keeping the menu pretty easy and straightforward otherwise: stuffing (from the box ... my husband prefers that), mashed potatoes, gravy, green bean casserole, a relish tray. Dessert will include chocolate Oreo pie; pie is traditional but my family doesn't care for fruit or pumpkin (I think I might try to make a pumpkin pie for the first time ever, though -- I love it!).

    3. I don't have a smart phone, either, and I also text using Google Voice! I do have a cell phone ... it's a flip phone. :-) I do think I might cave and get a smart phone for Christmas.

    4. Your little guy is CUTE!!

    5. I don't have Amazon Prime, but I am close to shopping. I would see it as a VERY worthwhile investment if I lived in a tiny, remote mountain town! I already use Amazon subscriptions for things like diapers and nighttime Pull-Ups because I was tired of not realizing I was almost out and then having to drag all my kids to the store when I wasn't planning on it! Since you buy the diapers in bulk, the shipping is free. Anyway, I hope you get Prime for Christmas! (That is a super good idea!)

    I love Amazon Prime - 2 day shipping is the bomb! lol
