Vacation is almost over :0(

Oh, how i hate when your vacation ends. It has been exhausting running somewhere everyday, but at least i know my kids have loved it!

We will come back home tomorrow night, late. We hope to get back home before it get's too late though because when we drove out here the highway just seemed like a war zone for deer. I bet we passed a good 75 or so deer that had died on the highway from people's cars. So sad.

I'll post a few pics of our trip so you can see.

Vacation Time

Our vacation had to start sooner than i thought it was going to. We went ahead and left on Sunday am. It was a 11 1/2 hour drive so it took us almost 13 hrs. Sure is a long drive from Nebraska to Dayton, OH.

So since we were wore out the first day we didn't much that day, lol. We went to the grocery store (Krogers) and i thought that was a war zone yesterday. OMG. i told my mom i would never go to that Krogers again. We went to Walmart just before that store and i wished i was back there instead of Krogers.

I cooked hamburgers & hotdogs. Then later we went out fishing. My kids loved that so much. They had been fishing before but had never caught anything. Tons of bluegill in the lake for them :0)

At night we went out for some ice cream. It was to a place called Graters. I had a buckeye waffle cone, Dh had a Strawberry Malt, kids had a Chocolate Chip ice cream cone. There pretty pricey but the ice cream was pretty good.

Today were thinking about going to WPAFB -Wright Patt Air Force Base. It's going to be raining on and off today. I might go and visit my neighborhood where i grew up from. New Carlisle, OH.
That's about it for today.

I'll post as i can here but i won't be loading any pics until we get back home. I also won't be posting many shopping deals until we get back. OH, but you can bet that i will be going to CVS. Look out here i come :0)

Have a great day today guys!

Dinner For Thursday

I made these mini muffin meatloafs. I wanted to try out Erins idea from her blog. You can visit her site off to the right side in the bar. Thanks for the tip Erin.  It's my recipe but her idea and a great idea at that.  

It cooks in a shorter amount of time vs my recipe i had. My recipe took any where from 1-1/2 hrs. I made this in about 20 minutes. We'll save some plain ones for spaghetti or meatball sandwiches. I'm not sure about her recipe but w/ mine they cooked smaller than i thought they would. 

Here's my recipe:

2lbs hamburger
1lb ground turkey

2/3 C evaporated milk
1/3 - 1/2 seasoned bread crumbs
1/4 C Ketchup
2 tsp. Worcestershire sauce
1/2 tsp. pepper
1 tsp. oregano

Heat oven to 375 and cook for 10 min. Then cover w/ your sauce of choice. I made some w/ bbq sauce, some w/ ketchup and some plain. 

FREE Oscar Mayer Hot Dogs! (giveaway starts at 9am today)

Fill out info and they will mail your coupon.
