Open House!

I'm still giving in to cravings, so there are more food pics in this post.

Let the cravings continue...
Yet again I let someone's yummy food picture dictate what our family was having for dinner.  Hads gave it a big thumbs up and says she wants it again.
*Hawaiian Jerk Chicken Kabobs*
(Lucky, yet again, to have all the ingredients already at home.)

I did some comparing last night between me while pregnant with Hadley and Oliver.  While I haven't gained as much, the belly is much more prominent this go around.

This morning, Hadley and I went to get our toenails done before Open House.  I decided not to make the long trek across town for the cute kid chairs, so Hadley had to settle with one of the manicure chairs.
I think Hadley always catches them off guard by how much she wants to talk and how many questions she wants to ask.  I don't think she was quiet the entire time. (This is NO exaggeration.) 


Hadley is in Park Plaza Preschool's Pre-K class this year.  She's been telling me regularly that when she turns 5 she'll be in Kindergarten.  She's so ready to be big. *deep breaths*

She was so excited when I told her where we were going she asked if she got to stay for the rest of the day.  I think she's ready to start back to school.
She was thrilled to give her gift to her teachers.

She's loving them already!!
Ms. Mary-Margaret and Ms. Myrna

She had plenty to do while she was there.  I know its going to be such a fun year for her.

*She made a face to go on the bus with the rest of her class.*

*She found her name on the bus wheel.*

*She picked out a spot for her face to go on the bus.*

*Orange hair with yellow highlights, perfect.*

*She found her birthday on the wall.*

*Already found her favorite center.*

Hadley and Jai won't be in the same class on Tuesdays and Thursdays, but they will on Wednesdays, YAY!!!
We've got our own little Sherlock on our hands!

 Before we left Hadley found her basket with all her goodies.  She can't wait to start on Tuesday.

Here was Hadley's treat from her teachers, too cute!!
She's been walking around the house with that pad of paper telling me she has so much paperwork to do today. Ha, love it!!!

The rest of our day in comparison was pretty uneventful. 

Tonight, I decided I was really craving the Black Pepper Chicken from Panda and I found a recipe that tasted VERY similar!  WINNING!!!
(Had to pick up a few ingredients for this one. I can't believe I didn't have oyster sauce or rice vinegar.)

Today has been a little crazy.  I've been moody/emotional for a good portion: my baby's starting pre-k and my husband is going to be leaving.
I want to stomp my feet and pout in the floor to be honest.  Sadly, that won't accomplish much, so instead I'm going to empty the dishwasher and head to bed.

Thanks for checkin' in!!
