:: Playing Catch-Up - Take 2 ::

:: I've updated another post back from September --- You can find our camping adventure here! Enjoy!!! ::

:: XO, Shawna ::


:: Easy as Pie...but it's not Pie ::

:: Hey - one more thing here...I just thought I should post this recipe {currently my house smells amazing from this very "fall" comfort food dish} ::

:: I was raised eating this for Sunday lunch, as my Mom could stick it in the oven, turn the timer on in the oven and we'd come home from church lunch would be r-e-a-d-y! Aren't moms so smart! ::

:: It really is a stupidly easy recipe, but add a side dish of a veggie and dinner {or lunch} is done! ::

:: So here it is ::

{PS. I use any kind of "cream" soup I have in my pantry - it comes out just the same!}

Butter a shallow casserole dish. Put a cup of dry rice in. Lay chicken on top. Add one can of cream of celery soup mixed with one can of water. Sprinkle 1 package of Lipton onion soup mix over all. Cover and bake about 2 hours in oven at 350 degrees. Do not add any seasoning.

:: Luxe - Special just for YOU ::

:: Hey Lovelies -- I just have a minute here but I couldn't wait any longer to post this fun and fabulous deal for YOU! ::

:: When I was at the One of a Kind show in Vancouver I stopped by the Luxe Design booth and visited with the owner Joanne {so great to see you again Joanne!} -- I oogled over their new designs and decided that I need a different chain for my personalized Luxe necklace, what girl doesn't need two chains for one necklace!??! ::

:: Anyway {here's the goods} while I was chatting with Joanne, she said that I could post a special promo code for y'all...now isn't that nice of her! So here's the deal, enter this code: OOAKV10 when you place your order on their {new & updated} site and that's it, you will get 10% off your order!!! ::

:: Now isn't that fabulous!?!?! Now if you are wanting this for Christmas, Joanne told me that they have a new wish list area on the new site as well, so make it easy for your hubbies this year, and just sit him down to the computer and say order this. What's that saying... a happy wife = a happy life?!?!? ::

:: Hope y'all love their stuff -- I am constantly getting compliments on mine, it's definitely a piece that I treasure! ::


:: Shutterfly Photo Book Deal ::

:: I just couldn't resist passing on this "FREE" photo book from shutterfly...it's such a great deal! ::

:: I have a shutterfly account and I have ordered cards and stuff from them before and they have always turned out very well, the free book only comes from a family tree facebook page here - or you can go here to see the original blogger that wrote about it. Apparently once you enter the promo code you've got until November 15th to make your book and all you have to pay is the shipping! Such a great deal! ::

:: Here's to almost free Christmas gifts! ::

:: If the Shutterfly one doesn't work for you - try out this free book here ::


:: I didn't do that! ::

:: Today I was in my local grocery store - around lunch time...this is a true story that happened in my world ::

:: My sons and I were running some errands around lunch time at our local grocery store, I love this store because it's small, same prices as the big box store - but less busy, except when the local high school is out for lunch, then it's a crazy place! ::

:: So my sons and I were perusing the aisles with all the young-uns {half of them that were feet taller than me}, and there was this "Guy" that kept on creeping around the girls, going in and out of the aisles, his eyes following the girls around...now I am known to overreact when a situation seems abnormal, what can I say - I come by it honestly, policing is in my blood! He was wearing a tuque, had a Celtic tattoo on his right forearm and was just SO creepy looking. So while he's preoccupied with the teenagers, I was preoccupied with him; being a Creep! ::

:: I was so ready to talk to management about him, until I stumbled across him in another aisle, and he was alone. So I gathered my gum shin and walked right up to him and said "you better stop it" --- yeah, I did. He said "what are you talking about?", I responded "I've seen you checking out those girls, they are half your age, if you don't buy your food and get out of here {he had a basket full of junk food}, I will call management and they'll have you removed!". Yeah, I did ::

:: He proceeds to whisper to me "I'm store security, I'm hired to blend in to ensure the students don't steal". Okay, I was so relieved {sort of} I still thought he was being too loooky with his eyes, but he was doing a job, not being a super creep...he was being paid to be a creep. I laughed so hard when that happened, only I would have the thought to walk up to a full grown man and tell him my mind on his grocery store etiquette! ::

:: Oh, I SO didn't do that! But, what I do know is that I can tell when somethings not right and something wasn't right! One day I might help someone that is really in trouble...maybe, one day! ::

:: For now I'm stalking the local grocery stores security guy, nice Shawna, very nice! ::

:: Happy Tuesday Y'all! ::
