Friday Fragments

Mommy's Idea

Well.  I did it.  I opened my etsy store.  It takes a bit of time adding items, so I've only just begun.'s already exciting!

Here are a few of my items...

I had a wonderful girls night out with an old friend/roommate this week.  We really don't live that far from each other, but with kids, Atlanta traffic, etc., we seldom get together these days.  It was great seeing her and we had a wonderful meal at
The Cheesecake Factory.

Sam went through VBS-withdrawal this week.  Every morning he asked, "What are we doing that's fun today?"  It was especially tough on the days when cleaning was the most exciting thing on our list.

He's also proudly showing off his art from last week.

The teachers took the sweetest pics of the kids in cowboy gear.  Love it!

Here's another easy recipe that I'm in love with...

BLT Wraps

8 - 10 slices of bacon, cooked and crumbled
2 cups lettuce, bit-size
2 cups cheddar cheese, shredded
1 large tomato, chopped
1/3 cup ranch dressing
6 flour tortillas, 8-inch size

Now, just mix the first 5 ingredients together and distribute amongst the tortillas.

Spread out the mixture and roll them up!  Yum!!

Hope you are enjoying the last few weeks of July!  It's bittersweet here b/c school starts August 5th.

Congratulations on your etsy shop!

This is definitely a bittersweet time of summer for me. After the 4th of July, it's all downhill. Soon Hubby will be back at work and life will return to normal. (sigh)

I love to eat wraps. My mom and I have chicken ceasar salad ones when we go to her pool. I will try your recipe. Sounds so good!

Love the photography! My favorite would have to be the tiny toddler Chucks, but I might be biased since my own toddler proudly sports them, too :)

Hi Dina!
Thanks for poppoing over to my blog and commenting. I can totally relate to the VBS withdrawals. It seems like the more fun stuff we plan for our kids the more they notice the boring days. And I just don't have it in me to make every day fun! :)

Amy said...

Will definitely check out your etsy shop. The wrap sounds delish! I can't believe you guys start school August 5th. That is cuh-raz-ee!
