Greek Salad

A lot of people asked how to make this salad at the baby shower I hosted on Saturday. My sister is the one who came up with the recipe, but I an happy to share it. And it's so easy.

For the salad part:
-Romaine lettuce
-Feta Cheese

Now for the dressing. It's not an exact, rather an eyeballing process. I'll give you approximately how much I use. You can add more or less of any ingredient until you get it the way you like it.

Ok so here is the real flavor:

It's all purpose Greek seasoning, I get it at World Market, but I've seen it at the grocery store in a smaller more expensive package. I would say I use about 1/4 cup of this, at least.

-Then add an equal amount of grated Parmesan cheese
-A couple cloves of garlic pressed or minced
-Vegetable oil, I pretty much pour it to the top of the dressing container. Vegetable oil works better because it won't solidify as
quickly as olive oil.
-And last Balsamic vinegar to taste.

Okay so I haven't posted in FOREVER. And a lot of my family has asked me to do so. But I get busy and pretty much share our photos/videos on Facebook and forget about my blog. But that's not to say that I don't read other blogs. In fact I love to read blogs. My friend Letti is doing a giveaway on her blog. It's for scentsy warmer and scent of choice. If you have not heard of it you are not alone. I just discovered it around Christmas time. But now I see it EVERYWHERE. I've wanted one for sometime, which brings me to my post. It's part of her giveaway. From what I understand they are awesome and smell you home up something amazing. I'm planning on owning one soon, so I'll let you know if it's wonderful (I'm sure it is) And if you blog and want a chance to win one, you can check out her blog, Happily Ever After. But don't try to hard to win, because that's just not fair to me hehe wink wink :)

First Day

So today was the official first day of kindergarten. It was so much fun. Logan was excited, but also really cool about everything. He didn't make a big deal of it at all. It was almost like he's done it before! That's why I would say preschool is SOOOO important he's a seasoned school boy already! We took lots of pictures. I think he was actually embarrassed that we were taking so many pictures. Kids are so funny. I already LOVE this school! I'm SO happy that we get to go to Mariposa. The people are so friendly and you get that small home town feeling. I also like that the parents are eager to help with the kids classes and that the principal was outside and shaking our hands before we got through the gates. It really was great! I'm really excited to begin this journey. For me I have a lot of great school memories and I feel like childhood really starts with school! Ok enough here are some pics...

We just got back from Campland yesterday. The kids had a great time. My favorite thing to do is ride bikes and it's so much fun now that Logan likes to ride his big boy bike. This was our last trip before Logan starts school on Wednesday. It's bittersweet because no longer will we have the luxury to pick up and go as we please, but on the other hand I'm so excited for him to start school! Be on the watch because soon I will be posting his first day of school photos!

Brooklyn is Potty Trained!

Woo hoo! I have to toot my own whistle a bit here. Brooklyn is now potty trained after only a few days! It was so easy, just like Logan. She was ready and that was that. I said no more diapers and got some underwear and it was simple as that. I think that since she understands the concept it makes things that much easier! YAY for no more diapers!

This next picture I just had to get in. Last week the kids were both sick with a strange fever. Logan wanted to be next to me while I worked out, so he climbed up on this step and feel asleep! Kids can fall asleep in the funniest places!

{Our Vacation}

It was amazing and so beautiful. And the best part of it all was that we got to spend it with our best friends!
