It's Thursday...........

Happy Thursday guys and dolls.  How the heck are you?  Great, I hope!  How was your night?  Do anything good?  We didn't do much really - my daughter had to have a physical for work and then afterwards, me and my son met my husband and daughter for a "treat".  (I actually got off work early - WOW) We went to the local diner for dinner - something we've not done in quite a while!  It was SO nice to actually sit down as a family together and talk about our day - something else we've not done in quite a while.  Our two "babies" are both teenagers now with their own lives and my husband and I stay so busy with our jobs now and the hours we both put in - that it is truly a rareity (sp?) for us to sit down and have a "family" dinner.  I miss those days when the kids were little and we didn't have to run them all over the place and could actually have "family" time.  It breaks my heart for those days to be gone.  I used to try and do it at least on Sunday nights but now my daughter has a weekend job and so that went out the window because she is never home on Sunday evenings until after 9 p.m. sooo.... What about you and your family?  Do you have family sit down dinner time together?  I'd love to hear your stories so please share!

Tomorrow we are having a Secretarial luncheon at work so stay tuned for a wonderful dip recipe that I am going to share with you.  It's been in the family for a while (though I've seen several versions of it online too).  I think it is one you will greatly enjoy.  It is a different type of dip but one that you will not be able to stop eating and is perfect for the upcoming holidays....promise! :O)

Anyway, how was your day?  I know this is short and sweet today and I'm sorry that I don't have much time to do a "real" post - but, it's "that" time again so I must hop and get ready for work and get my "babies" up for school.  

Have a wonderful and blessed day and thanks again for stopping by.  Only one more day til the weekend - WOO HOO!!!

Lots of love and hugs,


  1. Glad you got to have a nice family dinner. I hope to make sure we do that at least once or twice a week when my kids are teens. Right now we do it every night! :)

    I'm good. Getting ready to take Hannah in for her 5 year check up. She'll be fine until it's time for the shots. :)

  2. my family are my friends(they are truly the family we choose) we try and get together by weekly, it has become a tradition with us.


  3. My boys are teenagers too & we rarely get a chance to all sit down together. I also love it when we do though.
