What the Heck Wednesday - NOT!

I'm sorry I have no WTHW post today.  Things are hectic as we're preparing for our AR Easton Elite 9 Major team to travel to Kentucky for baseball Nationals!

Please keep these young boys and our families in your prayers as we travel. 

Thank you!

7 Quick Takes Friday

--- 1 ---
On the 15th, I traded my 2011 Honda Pilot for a 2012 Chrysler Town & Country Minivan.  So far, Im loving it.  I know it's a mini van, and I probably just lost a few cool points.  But let's face it, I have champagne taste on a beer budget.

What the Heck Wednesday

Recently, I was car shopping.  I already had a fairly new car, a 2011 Honda Pilot.  It's a nice car, but I wasn't really happy with it.  Nor was I happy with the large car payment we were paying.  So, in an effort to find a vehicle I was happier with and reduce our car payment, I went shopping.

Last weekend was a long, exhausting weekend for us.  The AR Easton Elite hosted a Cal Ripkin baseball tournament to raise money to help off-set our travel expenses for the World Series.  It's alot of work for us parents, but  it's so worth it.  Unfortunately, I got extremely sunburned in spite of wearing sunscreen.  My feet are also killing me, even though I wore tennis shoes both days.  But, I'll eventually bounce back.  We raised a great deal of money to help our boys, and that's what it's all about.

What the Heck Wednesday

I'm still worn out from the baseball tournament we hosted this past weekend, and I can't really think of a way to open this post.  So, let's just get started shall we?  Oh, wait!!  I know.  One great thing about hosting a baseball tournament, is that it offers some prime people watching opportunities.

Key Lime Pie

As I mentioned in my Friday Quick Takes, I love to cook when I have time.  Unfortunately, it's seldom that I have much spare time.  I work full time and also handle all of the doctor's appointments, baseball practices, lessons, etc.  That means I'm constantly on the go.  Therefore, I'm always looking for new quick & easy recipes, and I found a few recipes recently that I decided to try.

Well, my wit seems to be wanting lately.  Not sure if I'll be able to muster something amusing for these items, but let's see what I can manage.....

Sopapilla Cheesecake

Finding a quick and easy recipe that will satisfy the sweet tooth of each member in my household is not always an easy task, especially since one of my sons doesn't like chocolate.  **gasp!**  I know!  That just doesn't seem natural does it?  But it's true.  My oldest son really doesn't care for chocolate.  Thankfully, tonight I was able to find something that everyone loved
