I have a chocolate chip cookie hangover.

I ate an entire avocado. It was delicious. Probably doesn’t help the hangover.

I actually did some cleaning, in attempts to ward off a similar disaster that I experienced last week.

I didn’t do any laundry. Typical.

I did this leg workout. Ouch.

I laughed about watching Mr. How Sweet do a workout video yesterday. Hysterical.

I still can’t decided what I’m making for dinner. What are you having?

I learned that I really need to take my camera with me because all I have are photos of food.

Is my grandpa’s birthday!

Isn’t he cute?! Doesn’t look a day over 25, right? He is such a wonderful man, and he and my grandma set such a fabulous example of love and compassion for all of us to follow. Can you leave him some birthday love below? Happy birthday Grandpa!

    Happy birthday to your wonderful grandpa! I miss mine so much, but I’ll always value the amazing times I had with mine. Grandpas are the best!

    You have a such a beautiful family! I just sent my grandma a mushy email telling her how much I love and appreciate her and everything she’s done for our family. Your posts about your family inspire me to make sure I never take for granted how great my family is.

    Happy birthday, Grandpa How Sweet! I’m sure it will be filled with all the love you deserve!

    I just reread the post about your grandfather and your grandmother, which was just so sweet. I want my life to be exactly like that.

    Happy Birthday to your grandfather! Can’t believe he’s old enough to have been married almost sixty years-he looks so young!

    Happy birthday to your Gpa! I hope you got to spend some time with him; that is the best gift of all.

    Yesterday I went down to the freezer to get my roasting chicken out so I can try your recipe for supper tonight (Tuesday). I don’t have a chicken in the freezer! I was so dissapointed. I thought I had one, I was sure I did.

    Now I am thinking grilled chicken breast or meat loaf for supper tonight. Might need to seek the input of my cowboy for a second opinion.

    Have a Great Day!

    Your grandpa is so cute! Happy Birthday Grandpa Sweet! This post made me miss my grandpa! He used to make pizzelle cookies for us when we would come to visit and he always had those little vanilla cups with the wooden spoon. Okay you totally inspired me to make some pizzelle’s in honor of remembering my grandpa! Have a great day! :)
