Day 5- Just Playing...

So it's Day 5 of our family project and we enjoyed more cereal and leftovers today. We didn't go anywhere so that means, no $$ was spent! Yes!

To pass the time, we did laundry and played- a lot! Barbie, Legos, Hot Wheels and of course, I blogged. I also made Charlie's favorite dinner, one of them, and his fave dessert.

I found these plates at a nearby Goodwill for 99 cents each. Since there are yellows and gold in the centerpiece, I used my golden yellow plates to bring the yellow everywhere. The lack of blue anywhere else made the dainty design of the plates stand out a little better.



We made Hawaiian Haystacks and it turned out so yummy! The tablesetting is my rendition of using and re-using what we have. So the mums were transferred from the green bowl to my vegetable pitcher that I rarely used. Since I won those cute chicks, I paired them up with my rooster, "Red" and he proudly completed the centerpiece vignette. He's such a handsome fella!



And here's a piece of the Butterscotch Banana Bread that Charlie didn't let cool down before he ate a big piece. It is good warm, that's for sure! See the cute chickie peeking up at me? I think he's trying to ask for a piece, too! Should I give him some?

I am glad that it's the Sabbath tomorrow; it's a bonus day as we don't do any sort of business on Sundays.

I'm coming over from Mormon Mommy Bloggers, asking for your help. I am in the running for a round trip airfare paid ticket to Connecticut, to meet a friend I became acquainted with through blogging. She is a super fun person and is holding this contest. I entered a funny story titled "Grapejuice Floaties, Now Marry Me." The person whose story receives the most votes will win a trip to meet this generous lady, whom I'm hoping to meet. The voting ends tomorrow I believe. I am ahead for now but there is a story coming up from behind out of nowhere and I would so, so, appreciate your help. Her blog is www.becausemomsaidso.blogspot.com and the voting is on the sidebar on the right. "Grapejuice, Floaties" Just go there and cast a vote for me, please. Thanks so much-you're awesome! ♥
