Let's see who still actually looks at my blog.....
I was looking at old blogs for a particular picture (that I didn't find) and got all gushy inside at how good I used to be at posting here on the good ole blog!! My babies have grown so very much since I started this virtual scrapbook. It made me sad and mad at myself all at once. I need to get my sorry self to sit at least once a week and put something on here!!! So here's my first attempt!

So the Pinterest craze is something that I use to pass time or zone out but occasionally I find a few real jewels on there. BUT on occasion I also find some "Pinstrosities" to quote one of my new favorite websites (http://pinstrosity.blogspot.com/). The only things I've tried are a few cleaning ideas and recipes. So I thought I'd share a great recipe and one that didn't do so well.
This one my girls love and I've actually made a few times:
This one was a total fail. Not sure if it was b/c I just plain ole burned them or the temp is just too high for these little guys. I think if I could get it to work it might be really good and healthy.
I didn't take a picture but only about 5 of mine weren't burnt like little squash hockey pucks. hahaa...I think I might try them in my Pampered Chef Chip maker too. That might be easier.
Anyway, just thought I'd share w ya. I promise to try to post some pics of my babies and play catch up soon. :)
We have a relatively busy few days ahead so should be fun and exhausting all at the same time so I can't make too many Blogger promises!! ;)

I know I'm a blogging failure. My children have even blogged since I have (to which none of you commented on how adorable their posts were - shame on you - hahaha kidding, kidding, no hate mail please)!!
Anyway, I just read that Blogger is adopting a new look and interface. Just thought I'd give ya a warning. I tried it out for a few minutes and about lost my mind. Maybe it wont be as hard as it seems but good ole Google has decided to mess with a good thing so if ya see me post crazy stuff or my background disappears or whatever, you'll know why!!
Ok so it's ridiculous that I post to complain about Google, I know, but maybe it will inspire me to get back on the horse and post again!! Life has just become too busy and with that comes the guilt of me not documenting my family's life anymore!! :( Shame on me!!!
Have a great day everyone!!

We are proud to be a part of the Cowboys Cheer Center family and I am proud to be a Cheer Mom. Ridicule should you wish, but since we started this adventure, we've experienced that Competitive Cheerleading is - athletic, challenging, rewarding, tough, fiercely competitive, character building, etc. - it is a sport folks! ;)
This was our 2nd competition- placing 3rd out of 9 teams. Again, you would have thought we'd won nationals, we were so proud of them!!
More pics to come!

I know I'm suppose to be keeping you up to date with my family's happenings but I just needed to take a minute to post a thought or two I found on Pinterest. (That's another subject I could spend a whole post or two on - Pinterest -ha) Anyway, I've found that worrying and over-analyzing things might be one of the things I need to seriously work on. I have lots of things on my mind and lots of people on my heart lately and I'm trying to keep my perspective clear so I can focus on what matters in my life instead of being bogged down with life and all it brings so I can be a light to those who are on my heart and around me. And I think the best way to shine is to pray with passion and be grateful to My Savior. Remembering our blessings and where they come from is so very essentially important to me right now and hopefully it is to you too. I fail consistently with this but remembering that I am not perfect and he still loves me strengthens me greatly. I am never alone!
I guess I just feel the need to renew myself right now. Don't we all need that at times? I need to take moments each day to re-focus and remind myself who's I am and how important He is to me.
" So here's what I want you to do, God helping you: Take your everyday, ordinary life—your sleeping, eating, going-to-work, and walking-around life—and place it before God as an offering. Embracing what God does for you is the best thing you can do for him. Don't become so well-adjusted to your culture that you fit into it without even thinking. Instead, fix your attention on God. You'll be changed from the inside out." Romans 12:1-2
This is from the Message but isn't it an interesting way to read this passage? Being changed from the inside out sounds so amazing and refreshing. Letting God work in us is what he wants. Reading this helped clarify where my heart needs to be and how it needs to get there with these issues that are weighing on me. There's so much more I could say but I just don't have time. Maybe another time. Sorry to have rambled but I feel better for having shared.
Have a Great Week Eveyone!!

So it seems I have at least one talent that other people really seem to enjoy. I have been asked many times and even threatened to share my SALSA recipe with the world so here it is. Enjoy!!
1 ripe tomato chopped
1 14 oz can of diced tomatoes
1/4 white onion chopped
3 garlic cloves (I use 1 fresh clove and 1 tsp of minced)
2 tsp jalapenos (I use the jarred kind instead of fresh)
1/4 cup chopped cilantro (can substitute parsley- but I don't)
1 lime juiced
1 tsp salt
Pepper to taste
Hint - 1 tsp of sugar if the tomatoes are too acidic
Combine all ingredients and mix well. I use my food processor to get the fine consistency.
I usually add extra salt to taste.
There you go. That's all there is to it. Good luck on all your Salsa adventures!!
