All because two people fell in love...

We met in February 1989, started dating in May, and got married in September. And Josh came *almost* 11 months later, just in case y'all were wondering. And then no more came. We waited, and waited, and then Lauren decided to make her debut in May 1995 (5 weeks early), and then Kayley 1997, Jacob 1998, Krissy 2001, Lindsey 2004 & Joey 2006. We lived in Texas until 2005, and then we moved to Arkansas, just about 25 miles north of Texarkana, Texas. Fortunately all my children are Texans (and my handsome husband) because Texans are just cool. Wish I was a Texan... but husband had to settle with a California gal, which I think is pretty cool too.

And this is why I can't lose weight.

On February 12th, Shawn turned 45. I know, so old!! He had to work. I made dinner for us. Made him up a plate so he could eat when he got home. I also made him a coconut meringue pie. His favorite. It was really good.
On Sunday night, the kids and I made these sugar cookies. I had a few more batches that I also made up but not in the picture. These were for Lauren's & Kayley's lucky friends at school, and some for Krissy's & Lindsey's teachers, and a friend of each. We only had 2 cookies left with the frosting on it.
They were also good.
Being Valentines Day yesterday, and Shawn working again, I decided to make a special dinner for him when he got home. We both like the Outback Steakhouse's Alice Springs Chicken, and this is what I made. I marinated the chicken in a roasted garlic & herb seasoning, and then lightly pan-fried it. Added a really good honey mustard sauce, bacon, mushrooms and mozzarella cheese. Also had a baked potato and salad. No dessert.
It was way good!
