This weekend 2 of my longtime friends got married.

{not Lucas :) }

And it was a match made in Heaven!

Go here to read about how they got together.

(p.s. don't overcook and enjoy by dunking in a glass of milk!)

For your review

New in the shop~

Happy Birthday, Zachary

I'm still trying to recover from the Friday night whirlwind that was Zachary's 8th birthday party/sleepover.

Actually, it wasn't bad. Really it wasn't.
(I'm serious!)

They had hotdogs, Pokemon, cake, Pokemon, football games, Pokemon, pillow fights, oh and Pokemon.

The kids were very polite and well mannered.

I even had one little boy ask permission before he whacked the dog with his pillow.

The worst part of the entire event?
No, not the dirt on the carpet.
Not straightening the couch cushions 118 times.
Not feeling like I was "right at work."

It was the entire crew waking up at 5:50 am....on a Saturday morning....on Spring Break.
I haven't been up that early since Lucas was a newborn.
My kids aren't even allowed to get up that early.
At least there was a nap for me and an early bedtime for my kids on Saturday night! :)

Happy birthday, Zachary! I love you!

And looks like Lucas will be easy to spot this season:

Hot Fudge Root Beer Floats~

First, let me apologize for not including a picture of these. The lighting was poor, the kids were acting like this was their 1st meal in a month and I was trying to make the picture "pretty" despite the weird brown background that is our wood paneling and old wooden table. Needless to say the photos were less than appetizing. I hope to post a picture in the future.

So you'll just have to take my word for it that these were both pretty and delicious.

1. Make hot fudge sauce
2. Fill glasses with vanilla ice cream
3. Top with a ridiculous amount of hot fudge sauce
4. Pour IBC root beer over the top
5. Listen to your 4 year old say, "Mom, this is SO, SO Yummy!" at least 5 times.

I've included a wonderful recipe for homemade hot fudge sauce. It was given to me by my friend, Suzie, who was gracious enough to share it with me. Super easy and super yummy to make. Plus you can heat it to a thick consistency or take it off the heat when still very "liquidy."

(Suzie, are you out there???? I don't think so....
I realize there are only 3 of you who actually read this.
Maybe just 2.)

By the way, this is not Suzie. However, I'm sure this is Suzie Homemaker.
