I want to blog more!

I really do. I have so many good posts in my head but nothing is getting out on paper... Well, computer.

Our life has been, well, crazy the past few months. I'll have to give details later but it's just really busy.

Cason is still precious. He says a lot of things, more than I thought he would at this age but then again, I know nothing about this age so he could be really far behind and I wouldn't know it. Thats the way I like it.

He is so silly at bathtime. He is taking swimming lessons and the school says he is very talented and should keep up the lessons. Ok, so it wasn't exactly those words and it's something they say to everyone to keep the money coming in but he loves it so we keep swimming.

I have to keep an eye on this one. He's a climber. Yesterday he climbed to the top of the barstool and I still have no idea how he did it... And I was standing right there. Anyone have a climbing wall they are selling?

We went to houston to visit Julie a few weeks ago and had a great time. Cason isn't a huge fan of car trips but once we get there he's good.

Our camera is broken and has been since march. I have 3000 pictures from the time Cason was born to the time he is 1 year and 3 pictures over the past 6 months. I have cell phone camera pictures but that's it. Anyone selling a camera.

My mom is letting us borrow her camera for our vacation next week. It weighs more than Cason and has more buttons than your average aircraft but I am convinced I can read a few tutorials on the trip down and be a professional photographer by the time we get to lake Travis. If only I had a brother who was a photographer to give me tips...

So that brings me to vacation. We are headed to the beautiful lake Travis to a condo in the middle of nowhere that may or may not have wifi in the community center which may or may not be within walking distance. I can tell you what's not within walking distance... A Starbucks. Hopefully I can still function by the end of this trip. True relaxation isn't true relaxation without a Starbucks... That's what I always say.

A picture to leave you with.

Dinner tonight

I brought back an old school recipe from a few years ago. It was circulating big time for awhile but I haven't made it or been served it in a year so I thought I would give it a try.
Green Bean Bundles

I realize that wrapping green beans in bacon takes away some of the benefit to eating veggies but if you have someone in your family that's not a veggie fan, this might just work. I don't eat the bacon because I like my bacon practically burned and I feel this is a disadvantage to this recipe because I cannot get the bacon crisp. I even pre-cooked it a bit this time.
I used fresh green beans and blanched them- cooked them in boiling water then immediately dipped them in ice water to stop the cooking. Then make your bundles using 1/2 slice of bacon. Then drizzle with butter, garlic salt, Creole seasoning, and brown sugar. Then bake at 350 for 20 minutes.

I will have to post the rest of dinner tomorrow. I'm tired now!

On my way to work this morning

This is what I see:

All things are right in the world again.
