Brownies for Breakfast

Last week I made some frosted mint brownies to take to a bar-b-que at a friends house. They just happen to be Winston's favorite brownies (and mine too - Yummm!). After the party, we still had half the pan left over - the recipe makes a lot. It was late when we got home so I just covered up the pan thinking that I'd put them in a container in the morning. The next day when Winston woke up, I got him ready as usual and then went to finish getting ready for work. He usually comes in and "helps" me. When several minutes had passed and he still hadn't come in, I thought I'd better go see what he was up to. Well, he had discovered the leftover pan of brownies on the table. He just couldn't resist those delicious brownies and decided to help himself to one. When I asked him what he was doing, he told me that he was "eating brownies for breakfast." What a smart kid!
I thought that sounded like a great idea and had one myself. Mmmm - gotta love those mint brownies. A delicious (though not very nutritious) breakfast. If anyone wants the recipe, just let me know and I'll post it.

Kenny Chesney Concert - Woo Hoo!

Brad and I went to the Kenny Chesney concert last night and it was awesome! He sounded great in person and really put on a good show.

Miranda Lambert was one of the opening acts and also did a good job. We missed the other opener - Lady Antabellum - but they were on at 5:30 which was a bit too early for us to get there in time for. We really just wanted to see Kenny anyway.

He sang for over two hours non-stop and was obviously enjoying himself - which made the performance that much better. And even though it was hot - over 1oo degrees - we had so much fun! Dancing and singing along to great music. Kenny, you rock!

Happy 4th of July

How extraordinary are the blessings of freedom and liberty we're able to enjoy in this wonderful nation. I'm so grateful for all those who have given so much so that we're able to have these blessings. I hope you all enjoy this great day!
