Friday… I had lunch with my brother, Mike… had a quiet evening at home.

Saturday… Emelia and Matt wanted Chinese food for lunch.  I took Emelia and her friend to the nail salon and got a pedicure.  That was the excitement of the day 🙂 …  We were planning to go to dinner Saturday evening, but by the time we were ready to get ready it was too late so I just cooked and we stayed home watching old episodes of Bones on Netflix.

Sunday… I got up early and headed to church.  Taught the girl’s class.  After church and lunch Matt’s work called so he was out the rest of the day.

Monday… I got up and went to the park and the gym for arm day… then Matt and I went to lunch (love mexican food!).  Amanda came home for a few hours.  Making avocado quesadillas for dinner…

Avocado Quesadillas n’ Dip
1 fully ripened avocado from Mexico, halved, pitted and peeled
1/3 cup prepared ranch salad dressing
4 (6-inch) flour tortillas, any flavor
1/2 cup shredded Monterey Jack cheese
1/4 cup corn kernels
Raw veggies

Chop half of the avocado.

To prepare Avocado Dip: In bowl of food processor, combine chopped avocado with ranch dressing; process until smooth; transfer to small serving bowl; set aside.

Cut remaining half of the avocado into 8 slices. Heat skillet over medium heat; place one tortilla in skillet; heat until warm, about 30 seconds. Turn tortilla over, sprinkle 2 tablespoons of the cheese on half of the tortilla; heat until cheese melts, about 2 minutes. Remove from skillet.

Place 1 tablespoon corn and 2 slices avocado on top of cheese; fold other half of tortilla over avocado; press the edge together. Remove to serving plate; cut into thirds. Repeat with remaining tortillas.

Serve warm with reserved Avocado Dip and raw veggies, if desired.

My long time bloggy buddy Jodi tagged me for this meme. Its been a while since I have been tagged, so this will be fun!

1. Why did you start blogging? I started blogging to keep friends and family updated on Izzy’s status after her near drowning accident about six years ago.  I decided to make a blog of my own and have had so much fun getting to know people all over the world through blogging.  Although I have neglected the blogging community the last year, I still love having my blog and being able to look back at what has happened in the past.

2. If you could travel any where in the world with no restriction of costs, where would it be and why? Everywhere!  France, Greece, Hawaii and back to Disneyworld. HA.  I would love to go everywhere!

3. Did you have a teacher in school that had a great influ ence on your life? If so, what? My eighth grade English Teacher, Mrs. Weidenmeier, was very influential in my life.  Great teacher.  I even considered being an english teacher because of her.

4. If you could spend the day with a famous person, who would it be, and what would you do? Jesus… we’d just talk 🙂

5. Toilet paper — over or under? Either.

6. Name one thing in your life that you would do over if possible. That’s easy… not get a pool.

7. Tell about your pets — if any. Princess.  She’s a corgi-huahua.  She mostly sleeps and eats… but we love her.
