Madelyn is all girl! She has the sweet, bashful, smile mastered...and she knows how to use it. Adam doesn't stand a chance, I have a feeling the girl will have whatever she wants. She now uses the word "cute?" when she wants to know if she looks cute. We bought her a few new things for summer on Friday night and when we got home she had to model them for us, all at once. She would then ask "cute"?

The picture isn't the best but you can see that she has her new pajamas on, along with her new shorts. She thought she was super "cute"...and I agree!!!!!!

Grocery Shopping

So I battle the grocery every weekend, maybe it's not so much the actual store that I despise but the dreaded list. I usually go to the grocery every Sunday or Monday depending on what the weekend has in store for us. Yesterday I knew I would be going to the store later that afternoon and so the dreaded grocery list began. I guess it wouldn’t be so bad if Adam and I actually liked to eat the same food, but that would be way too easy. Adam prefers to have meat, meat and more meat. I prefer to eat a mostly vegetarian diet with a little meat every once in a while.

I prefer to make out the menu for the week and then make my list from there, so here is what I came up with for this week. Please remember that I am working full time, adding Real Estate stuff into the mix every week, and a Mommy. So my time is a little limited!

Sunday: Quesadillas with homemade guacamole
Monday: Tuna Salad and macaroni and cheese, my tuna recipe is awesome with dried cranberries and fresh apples. Yum!!
Tuesday: Beef Burgundy with egg noodles (Adam gets his meat and I can eat the noodles, mushrooms and onions)
Wednesday: Ham & Cheese Sandwiches with chips and salsa
Thursday: Hamburgers on the grill (I am not sure what I will eat but I can assure you it wont be a hamburger)
Friday: Baked ziti and garlic bread
Saturday: Out to dinner!!!!!
Sunday: My dreaded list and menu starts all over again :(

So my reason for this post…what do you make for dinner and how do you decide what to put on the menu?

This girl loves shoes and hats! Adam and I have a party we are attending in April and the theme is Cowboys and Cowgirls, my sister brought a few of my dad's old hats up this weekend for Adam to try. Maddy loved the cowboy hats, we actually had to hide them yesterday because she kept wanting to wear them.

I actually got her clogging a little in the hat as well!!!

Poor Baby

We have been battling the flu in the McCord household this week and I think we have almost kicked it. I am ready for the warm weather so we can open the windows and air out the house, Maddy is itching to get outside as well.

Adam stayed home with Madelyn yesterday, she needed one more day at home before returning to daycare. He snapped this picture of her fast asleep in her tent yesterday morning. Adam said she began to get fussy so he told her to "lay down in your tent and close your eyes". Well she did, and before he knew it she was asleep for over an hour.

Good news is that she is on the mend!!!!!!!
