Cinco de Mayo and other stuff!!!


Ok, so I've been a bad blogger again!! But there has been a lot going on around here... Well, when is there not a lot going on! Today is Wednesday, my favorite day of the week because I have off and get to spend the whole day with my baby!!! Starting next week I am going to be working for the full school days on Mon, Tues, Thurs, and Friday instead of going in @ 10:30. I hate waking up early, but it will be good for me. We are preparing for the NYS Social Studies Exam, so I gotta work a little harder now!! ALSO ~ SOME GREAT NEWS ~ I PASSED ALL OF MY TEACHER CERTIFICATION EXAMS!!! Which means ~ as soon as I pay New York State another $100 I will be a REAL teacher!!! (Which also means i get a raise @ my job~ woo hoo!) So thanks to all of you who were praying for me on that Saturday morning!!! 

So yesterday was Cinco de Mayo. Obviously I am not Mexican, but I love a good excuse to make Mexican food!! For my birthday my husbands sweet aunt bought me a subscription to Family Fun magazine and they have some good stuff in there! They had a recipe for burrito pie (probably similar to a mexican lasagna) and it was delicious! I also made some homemade salsa... the BEST! It was actually a recipe for a salad, but it is MUCH better as a salsa!!!

Here are the links to the recipes:
Burrito Pie: (I added cream cheese to the recipe and spreaded it along with the sour cream - yummy!)

So We have a lot coming up in the next few weeks... Mother's Day is Sunday and Cayden is turning One on the 23rd!! I ordered him the CUTEST birthday shirt from here ... She didn't actually have shirts on the website, but I e-mailed her and she said she could do it... I can't wait for it to come... in the meantime, I am trying to start planning his party... My husbands grandparents are coming to visit for a little while on Sunday, after they attend his brother's graduation from college in Tennessee. Sooo we have a busy few weeks coming up, but we are looking forward to it... Oh yeah, I got the most fun/special mother's day gifts for our moms, but I will have to wait until after Sunday to let you all in!!! 

P.S. Thanks for the comments from last time... I am such a blog stalker, and I always want to leave comments on the random blogs I read, and I think I will start doing just that... then maybe some will return the favor!! I love it!!! 

Thanks for Reading... 

Love, Hollie
