It's Okay Tuesay 9/2/14

Airing My Dirty Laundry



That we did absolutely NOTHING this holiday weekend. No cookouts, no shopping (the sales) no trips. 

We stayed home. It was Corys 12th Birthday and he did not to go or do anything but I did make sure I got him the present he asked for which was another mp3 player. This time he better not lose it. 
He got his gift at midnight, the above is not the mp3 player in his hands, its the Duck Dynasty gummies

That we will leave Logan with his two older brothers while we go to the oldests' (sp) volleyball game. 

That it has been one rainy day! 

Anyways that is pretty much all for the It's Okay Tuesday, here are some pics from out boring weekend for your enjoyment :-) Not really just want to share

School Events and Meltdowns

School events have started for this school year. Last night was the kick off pep rally! Mr. Sexy and I are going to do our best to be "good parents" and go to each event we can. Even though neither of the boys are in sports, the oldest boy (Sean) plays in the high school band. In my opinion he should be in football. He definitely has the build but oh well. I can not mold him the way I want him. The even started out well. 


After about 20 minutes of us sitting in the bleachers waiting, Logan started getting loud. He had his ipad and was playing a game that is very stimulating to him. He gets excited, starts jumping up and down, flapping and yelling as loud as he can. People began to gawk. Granted we were outside and everyone was talking but Logan seemed to get several octaves above everyone else. So we took his game away in hopes of quieting him down a bit. WRONG!! This led to meltdown mode. A gruesome 20 minutes of flailing, screaming, hyperventilating and a down pour in sweat. Mr. Sexy had him the first 15 minutes or so and then I took over for the rest of the event. Every time we go closer to the crowd he would scream. Logan and I just hung out on the side until the pep rally was over. We have made the decision to not take his game with us anywhere we go and try to find something less stimulating.
Mr. Sexy was able to get a few pictures while i was comforting Logan. I was also able to capture the football team before I took over.

While sitting out of the crowd and somewhat by myself other than Logan I noticed a beautiful sunset. You can kind of see the pink behind Sean here but I got the following shots with my phone. Mr. Sexy had my fancy camera.

A Calming sight to mark an ending to a horrific meltdown!

Here is to a school year full of events and meltdowns!

My Version of Smores Pie

Here lately I have been having a huge craving for smores. I have no idea why, I have never had one so I had no idea whether I like them or not. 
(no, not pregnant)

We were out grocery shopping and thought why not try them? One thing though, I did not want to mess with a campfire. After all it is summer and hot hot hot outside so why in the world would I want to sit at a fire to try something that I am not sure I will even like? 

Solution
1 graham cracker crust
1 pkg of hersheys chocolate chips
1 pkg of marshmallows

pour half the pkg of chocolate chips on the crust, dump the desired amount of marshmallows on top. I put the oven on 300 degrees and let the marshmallows brown and melt. 


I let it cook just a little bit before cutting it. It will come out of the pan just like a piece of pie. You definitely want to eat this while it is warm. The chocolate will harden and the marshmallows will not be gooey. 

The verdict? I liked it, I will use less chocolate next time but this was a good dessert. It satisfied my sweet tooth! The boys liked it at as well so we will make it again.
