3 Things - Company Girl Coffee 7.08.11


 1.  There are four kids outside jumping on the trampoline. . .only one is mine :)  It's always great having friends Grace, Faith, and JC over!  (My other three are at YMCA day camp today -- last week they'll be able to go this summer -- already!!! )

 2.  
This is a picture from a year ago right now. . .we were at Mammaw and Grandpa's. . .obviously the kiddos were heading out to go fishing. . .
Love this picture!!!  Tom's trailing behind (and obviously, so am I). . .Frederick, Margaret, Grandpa Foster, Marie, and Thomas


3.  I had a job interview today.  I look at the job boards every now-and-again and a friend had encouraged me to apply.  I found a few jobs at that school and applied for all I was qualified for.  The new principal called me Wednesday and my interview was this morning.  I played tennis next to the school at 7:45 a.m., crossed the parking lot to the YMCA to get cleaned up at 9:30 a.m., then drove across the street to the school for a 10:30 a.m. interview.  I met Tom at 11:45 at Chick-fil-A for lunch and to pick up the aforementioned four kiddies.  We'll see.  If they pick me (?!?!?!?!?!?) it will be a major life change for our family.  But who knows?  God knows.  I'm content with that.

I'm hooking up with Rachel Anne and her Company Girls today!  Go visit if you have time this weekend :)

    Can't wait to hear what happens with the job. Sometimes God has His way to surprising us with how He works.

    Have a wonderful weekend.

Sunday Dinner

This is the easy crockpot pork tenderloin dinner that I mentioned the other day. Obviously I'm not making it again today, but it IS a great Sunday dinner -- definitely good enough for company too. Here is your cast of characters:
Pork tenderloin, 1 can of each: Cream of Mushroom, Golden Mushroom, and French Onion. I am not a fan of processed foods, but this is an exception. I also don't really like mushrooms but they are easy to pick out of this dish if you like (I give all of mine to Margaret). That's it, that's all you need! Oh, and a crockpot and 8-10 hours :)

Here is what a pork tenderloin looks like if you've never bought one.
When you open it up you get this:Lots of people will further trim that fat. . .I don't because it will cook off. I do rinse and pat it dry at this point. Also, when my mother makes this she salt and peppers the meat -- I do not. My kids HATE pepper and I generally don't add salt to my cooking.

Add all three soups to the cro…

Love well

I needed some pictures late last week and realized that I don't spend enough time documenting the moments in life -- to me, if the picture is important enough to take, it's something I want to journal about.  It used to be that I was so busy documenting that I was forgetting to live in the moment. . .I think I have a much better balance now.  But then, this week, I was reminded of why pictures have always been important to me -- because LIFE is important and it's fleeting.
My aunt lost her son (in the sunglasses) this week.  It was unexpected.  He was 41.  He was one of my twin cousins.  Born on my sister's 2nd birthday.  I say "my aunt's son" because I can't imagine losing a child.  I'm sure no one can.  He was also a dad -- of that great kid all the way to the left in the front row.  J is 9.  So a boy is now without his father, and a mother and father without their  son.  His girlfriend lost her partner and many people lost a friend.  His sister…

Margaret's first 8th birthday party

Margaret had her 8th birthday party TWO WEEKS AGO!!! Ugh. It was on a Friday. The following Monday was the last day of school, then we left immediately for our trip "home" (300 miles away) and spent a week there. She had another party there, with family, ON her actual birthday. We traveled home Sunday, went to visit friends at Lake Cumberland in KY on Monday, "caught up" at home Tuesday, than visited Splash Country in Eastern TN with friends yesterday. Whew! Busy start to the summer :)This was the group of friends that were able to attend the party:Marie (her sister), AC, SM, EC, and the birthday girl herself :)She had three other people that were invited (she was 8, so I planned for a party of 8) but they didn't come.

We decided on a "crafting" party this year. My good friend and neighbor, Rene, works with Stampin' Up! and put together a great party at her house in her stamping room. The girls all made photo albums and charm bracelets. It…
