Things I have enjoyed lately:

I found this recipe on someones blog. It is delicious.

Yummy Jerk Chicken

1 envelope Italian salad dressing mix

2 tablespoons brown sugar

2 tablespoons olive oil

2 tablespoons soy sauce

1/2 teaspoon cinnamon

1 teaspoon thyme

1/2 teaspoon ground red pepper

2 1/2 lbs chicken pieces

Mix the marinade ingredients into a bowl and then pour over the chicken pieces. Allow this to marinate for a minimum of one hour or overnight. Grill your meat until it is done.
I really enjoyed this movie.

I don't have a picture but Chris made some wonderful pizza the other night. I was worn out from cleaning. It is so nice he is able to make some meals without any help:)

This is how my table looks when I am working on coupon deals. Yes, it does eventually get cleaned up. Not always right away though:) I clean houses but don't always feel like cleaning my own. Right now I am living in a construction zone. It is driving me crazy. The kitchen is coming along nicely. John has been sanding and fixing the walls. Here is a picture of what the wall looked like before. I will post pictures of the finished product. Hopefully soon:)

No more rental finally!

We finally got a new car. It has been a long day. John got off from work at noon to go car shopping. After a month of waiting on the insurance to kick in. Just yesterday our lease holder got the money. Today at 6:00 our car rental coverage was up (we had 30 days of coverage with our insurance). So we had to get the new car today. We got the rental back about ten minutes before it closed. We ended up leasing again. We were very happy with our lease before. We also really liked the Corolla so we ended up with another one. I love the red! It is a 2009 model. I actually wanted a 2008 but they didn't have any. We looked at used ones but there wasn't a whole lot of savings in buying used. We ended up getting the car for four thousand less than the actual value. So it was really great deal. Now I am exhausted. I am going to veg and watch American Idol.

We have been busy lately. I took down all the wall paper in the kitchen and scraped off the popcorn ceiling. I will post pictures when it is all painted and pretty. Christopher turned fifteen April 26th and got his learner's permit. The boys are getting so big. I took Chris shopping for shoes yesterday. He wears a size 12! John only wears a 10 1/2. I took some pictures of the boys yesterday. I love the way they turned out.
