And that it is.....I tell ya, the wind is just whipping out there this morning!! Yesterday was up & out EARLY for me. The girls wanted to do some shopping, so we all had to be out the door by 8am so we could drop Chris at class on time. Then we had til almost 2pm to shop. We went to Target & did some bra shopping & Alli used her BD money from Granny to buy some Barbie goodies (of course!). I also picked up the new Rascal Flatts cd for Chris' BD next week. Then we met Ella, Maw & Sarah at Subway for lunch. After that, we hit the mall. Found some REALLY good deals at Aeropostale. Ashley got a pile of stuff for about $16. Two camisole-type tops, one short sleeve, one long sleeve & some .99 ear rings. She also got a sweater jacket that had been $40 for only $3.99. She was thrilled!! I picked a couple of Ts for Chris there too & the cutest little brown purse for me.....all of which were just $3.99. WooHoo!

Clay & Jon are out checking traps already this morning. While the rest are reading/drawing, etc. Ashley is upstairs reading the beginning of our Valentine unit. I need to get a shower & fold about 4 baskets of clean laundry plus wash all Clay's hunting cover-alls for him. Then I need to get my chicken in the crockpot. Trying a new recipe tonight called Southwest Crockpot Chicken. You put about 2lbs. of chicken in the crock, a can of black beans, a can of corn & a jar of salsa.....I actually just picked up a big jar of Black bean salsa because it already has the beans & corn IN the salsa. Let that cook all day & then pull the chicken apart with a fork & serve in a soft tortilla with your favorite taco toppings. I'm going to make some rice to go with it too. Will report back later & let you know what everyone thinks about it. I think it sounds yummy!
