Had another great weekend. Went to a Cigar & Stout thingie @ our local cigar bar. Very nice time hanging out with some good friends. Also did some cleaning out. I love it when I can manage to get that kind of stuff done! threw out a bunch of junk this weekend!! Yay!!
Also went to see a movie. I know, I know, me and my husband are movie junkies! Almost every weekend we go see one. It's one of our THINGS we do.
Last nite we took our 2 oldest grandkids to K-Mart and played in the Halloween isles. Had a blast! Bought them some halloween stuff.

This is a casserole I make sometimes when I have the right leftovers. Or sometimes when I don't -- just cause.
I kind of made it up and make it a little different everytime.
I put whatever kind of leftover meat I have ( this was non-leftover hamburger). But sometimes I use pork tenderloin or chicken. Beans - homemade or canned, whole pinto or refried. Corn tortillas torn into smaller pieces. I have added other ingredients at times,(chipotle peppers, small can of chopped green chilis, tomatoes,cilantro). I top it with a can of Hatch's green chili
sauce with pork. And I bake it at about 450 till it gets cooked thru and hot. Then I add some cheddar cheese and bake till melted. Ummm, I love it!!
You get the idea though. It's one of those dishes that you put however much of whatever sounds good in it and top it with the green chili sauce and cheese and it always turns out great!
so anyway--- thats what we ate this past weekend.
We went to see the movie "Appaloosa" yesturday. It was a very good movie. I love going to the movies. I really do like the whole thing -movie, popcorn, diet coke. As long as I don't get the noisiest person in the place next to me -- I'm good to go!!

Shenandoah Costume GIVEAWAY !!!!!!!
I am having a very relaxing weekend and I love it!! Friday nite we stayed out a little late so I was tired Saturday. the weather turned colder this weekend, so it was a perfect day to just lounge, and lounge I did!! Took a nap even!!! Went to a movie -- Body of Lies, Very good movie.
Heated up leftovers. Oh yes, I was VERY lazy yesturday!! I plan on doing the same thing today!! May go see "Apaloosa". I may even order pizza tonite! Something about the weather turning to fall makes me feel like this.

Went to see Tropic Thunder. I loved it! So funny!! I even got a couple of things made and listed on my Etsy shop! How 'bout that!? Went to a 50's party last nite. We went to one of our favorite restaurants in town, Sugarbrook for breakfast this morning. Every sunday my husband and I split an order of their Bananas Foster French Toast!! It is one of the very yummiest things in the world! Very rich!!!
Then later in the day we went back and my husband got a banana cream pie and I got a chocolate mocha coffee cake!! Oh, yes! I felt like a pig for sure!!! You know once in awhile you just have to do that!! So--- guess I'll be working real hard at the gym in the morning, trying to burn it all off!
It was a busy but fun weekend.

at Confessions of an Apron Queen. The aprons are from http://www.carolynskitchenonline.com/index.html at Carolyn's Kitchen. Oh, my! they are too cute!
Had a good weekend. Not too exciting, but fun. Nice Italian dinner Friday nite. Pizza and the UFC at my daughter and son in law's Sat. nite. A movie (The new Mummy one) and got some crafting done. Finally got some of my old grapevine wire in and got a couple of nests made and some eggs felted. So I have one little nest pincushion done and ready to list on Etsy. I'm gonna try to get it listed this afternoon, and maybe another one finished and listed if I'm lucky!
I also got my button card packaged up and ready to mail today for the Vintage Button Card Swap.
I got a few other little crafts worked on.
I also watched my two youngest grandkiddos last nite!
Oh, yes! and I received my Itty Bitty House Book on Sat.!!!! How adorable it is! Bridget did such a beautiful job putting them together and the talented people who took part in this swap are amazing!!

And this is a very old Indian doll that was actually in with a bunch of old dolls that my grandmother gave me when I was young. They were all pretty old then, so now, they are REALLY old!! But this little Indian was always one of my favorites. I don't know anything about him. If anyone out there does, please let me know. Several of the old dolls have started coming apart. I just read the other day in the newest Mary Janes Farm magazine that there is an actual doll hospital in Michigan. The website is www.dollhospital.com. I haven't looked it up yet. But, I'm hoping to find out some info about fixing up some of these beautiful dolls. It is mostly just arms and legs and heads coming off due to old worn out bands. so---- if I ever get them mended, I will post some pics.

I am assuming that it used to be used for string for packaging! Whatever, I absolutely LOVE it!!
OK, so I finished my pages for Karla & Beth's Birds & Bonnets Swap. I was pretty happy with some of them. But I look at other peoples collage work and I feel I need to work on some techniques.Ther is so much talent out there!!
It is so much fun though.
Any way, here they are. I sent them off this morning.
Got started on my house for the Itty Bitty House Swap the other day. This is going to be fun too!!
Then I really have to stop for awhile!! Take a break from the fun stuff and maybe get some house work done. One of these days maybe I will actually get my craft room organized!! Ha!!

Going to go see my oldest sister tomorrow! And my niece and her kids and husband!

And the liittle tag with the nest embroidered on it is so me! There are so many little details on the nest that I could have taken a hundred pictures to show them all off! Then the bird with all the beadwork and the sweet beaded crown!! She really went all out! I just love it so much!! Thanks, Vanessa!!!
We are having my kids and grandkids over tonite for a belated birthday party for my son and son in law who both had birthdays last week. My son ( my youngest) turned 30! Hard to believe!!
