Five Things I Know For Sure…
1. Dancing with the Stars is one of my favorite shows on tv right now. I have to admit, I wasn’t excited when they first announced the stars; I didn’t know hardly any of them. But now we’re 4 weeks in and this may be one of my favorite seasons. The dances have been fun, the contestants are amazing and I literally cry every episode. (Mainly happy tears, but when Bindi Irwin danced to the memory of her dad, that was an ugly cry for sure.)
2. Our family loves high school football. Maybe it comes from our love of Friday Night Lights, but one of our Fall Must Do’s is attend a high school football game. The last 2 years, we’ve seen Curtis High School play. Neither of us attended Curtis, nor do we know anyone who goes there now. But they have a pretty good football team. This year, we watched them play Bethel, which is where Huz went to school. It was a good game…for Curtis. Bethel just couldn’t catch a break. It was a blowout and we left in the 4th quarter for Applebee’s.
3. We eat a lot of cheese. I’ve started buying our cheese from Cash & Carry, a local wholesale food distributor where you don’t need a business license or membership card to shop. It’s kind of like Costco, but more geared towards restaurants. We buy all our coffee syrups and milk there, and most recently, cheese. They sell these giant 5lbs bags of cheese for $10, that would take any normal family roughly a month, maybe 2 months, to go through. But it takes us 2 weeks. TWO WEEKS. I’ve decided that we’re no longer saving for the boys’ college educations. No, we’re now saving for groceries when they all turn teenagers.
4. Speaking of the boys, I can’t wait to take them to see the new Star Wars movie. The new trailer debuted during Monday Night Football and tickets went on pre-sale. Rumor has it that so many people went online to buy their movie passes that they broke Fandango.
5. And lastly, this video had me laughing for a good 15 minutes. Do you wanna make your own Pumpkin Spice Latte’s at home? Here’s a How-To Video with perfect instructions on how to do so. 🙂
