Take me out to the ballgame...

Yesterday, John T. & I headed to Atlanta with mom & dad & some of their work crew to watch the Braves vs. Red Sox. It was super, super hot, but we had a great time! We got to sit in the all-you-can-eat seats, and I had a very yummy hot dog & frozen lemonades. :o) The Braves ended up losing 1-0, but we just saw where they beat the Red Sox today, 2-1!

What's for supper?

Poppyseed Chicken

I found this recipe for Poppyseed Chicken from Kelly's Recipes. Her recipe is for ~6 servings, but I cut mine down to ~4 servings (or 2 servings, if you have a hungry husband like me). It is such a great, yummy comfort food.


  • 3 chicken breasts, boiled and cut in small pieces
  • 1 8 oz. sour cream (I don't use the whole tub, probably a little more than half
  • 1 can cream of chicken soup
  • 2 tablespoons poppyseeds (I just shake lots in)
  • 1 sleeve Ritz crackers
  • 1/2 stick of butter
    • Mix the first 4 ingredients, and put in a baking dish. Cover with crushed Ritz crackers. Melt butter and pour on top. Bake for ~25 minutes at 350 degrees.

      Poppyseed chicken, mac & cheese, & crescent rolls...yummo!

      Pool Days...

      On Wednesday, I got to babysit my dear little friend, Clay. It was a perfect day outside, so we decided to head to Tim & Lorrie's and have a pool day. Jayden, Clay, & I had a great time! Clay & I then went to Hillside Cafe here in Wartburg for lunch, and it was SO good! I can't wait to get to spend more time with him this summer!

      One of my best friends since elementary school, Brittany, got married last weekend to her love, Daniel Smiley. The wedding was in Decatur, TN, where Brittany grew up & everything turned out so beautiful. I was a bridesmaid & John T. was an usher in the wedding. Britt's colors were black, yellow, & white...the bridemaids wore black dresses & our bouquets were yellow & white daisies. They left on Sunday for Cancun, Mexico, and I hope they are having the time of their lives! Congratulations, you two!
