Tex Mex Pork Chops:
4 Boneless Pork Chops about 1lb
1 Teaspoon Vegetable Oil
1.5 cups of Salsa
1 can (4 oz) diced green chilies
1/2 teaspoon cumin
1/4 shredded Cheddar cheese
Heat oil in nonstick pan over medium-high heat. Brown chops on one side, about 2 minutes. Turn chops over. Add Salsa, chilies and cumin to skillet; mix well. Lower heat, cover and barely simmer for 8 minutes. Uncover; top each chop with 1 tablespoon cheese. Cover and simmer an additional 2 to 3 minutes or until cheese melts. Serve immediatly.
I place the pork chops on top of white rice and topped with chow mein noddles, for a little extra crunch.
This recipe was wonderful and I will add it to my regular rotation. Let me know if you try it and like it.

This is my experimental shirt ($1.00 on clearance) I thought it was pretty cute.
Things I learned:
1. Buy one with a smaller pattern on the front
2. Mark your pattern on the inside
3. Use as many of the finished seems as possible
4. Figure out how to get the snap area worked out so it will actually fit.
5. Boll Weevil enjoys me making stuff for him. When I tried this on him the first time and I got excited that it fit, and he just laughed and smiled for me. I just love my little boy.
Not so bad laying down, but you can see were it is tight.

Bo did the manual labor and my dad read the instruction. They really enjoyed their time together.

Apparently, I must be really interested in Heaven lately because this is the second book I have read on it lately. I have to admit this one was much better than the first.
This is actually the book I thought I was reading the first time, but sadly it wasn't.
I first heard about Heaven is for Real when Kathy Lee Gifford talked about it on her show with Hoda. Then a co-worker had just finished it and I borrowed it from her.
I have to say this book was really uplifting and amazing. It was told like it had come from a child and his parents. This book was easy to read and captivating which means it didn't take me long at all to finish. Which is important when having a 5month old. I would highly recommend this book to some one who is dealing with loss, searching for something or just needs to hear a good story.
A young boy emerges from life-saving surgery with remarkable stories of his visit to heaven.

I took Boll Weevil to the local sewing shop to be measured. He really wanted to figure out what they were doing to him and he was really glad when his dad came to pick him up and he could go. What he doesn't know is that this is just the first of many many fittings.

I have one of these shopping cart covers which is big and bulky and even though it says that it folds into itself and stay wrapped up it doesn't.
