Soph has a habit of taking my shoes from my shoe rack and scattering them around the house. It's mostly heels. She doesn't go for flip flops. I wonder why?
Contemplating her choices...
Made a decision...Brother made off with the other heels before I could get a picture of him. When I say made off, I meant he wore them. Maybe Soph isn't the only one with a shoe thing?
Finally ready to conquer a night on the town!
Nothing says a good night out like some sweatpants and a Tshirt with HOT heels!

Look, how delicious is that???
Here's the original recipe and here's my lazy way of doing it.
This is where I differ from the recipe. I don't use beer to cook it because I am cheap that way. Because of that, I'll use whatever chicken parts I have. I personally love the leg quarters. You can just "set it and forget it" (big informercial saying from the 90's) for about 2 hours. This is one of those things where you can't really get wrong with the time because the longer you cook it the more tender it gets. I mean fall.off.the.bone. YUM-MI-NESS
Of course, don't actually forget about it!
I hope you give this a try because it will knock your socks off! Thanks to my friend Jenna who made this for dinner one night.

We had a great time celebrating our freedom! I am so thankful for where we live, that I am not persecuted for being a believer of Jesus or homeschooling my children. With that said, I am also very thankful for my crazy family. The kids played, we had yummy food, and we got to do FIREWORKS!!!! Something that was taken away from our town a few years back. I'm thankful they are still allowed where my mom lives, although this might be the last year. Just as we were celebrating, there was an apartment building on fire due to illegal fireworks. Sad!

This is what we have been doing while the sun has been warming us up! I don't like heat and I don't think my children does either. We get C.R.A.N.K.Y. I think this helped though!
I love how saturated they both are. I think mission is accomplished!
