It's Starting Again!

I never participate in #TBT
but in honor of the 1st day of College Football 2014
I figure it was a pretty good day to start.

For those of you that don't know
I'm kind of obsessed with college football
and more obsessed with my beloved FSU 
aka 2013 College Football Champs

So here's a few TBT and a recap of last year's season with little P.

Mr.'s first Gameday in Tally
wow we were young.

tailgating at it's finest...

little Johnny then a high school freshman, now a college junior at FSU

Aunt Liz leaving for Gameday against Miami while we are in the hospital.

And last but not least Parker sending her Mimi, Papa John, and Uncle off to Pasadena...

Cheers to another great College Football Season!

Visit to the ER

Yes it's true
Last Thursday we had our 1st ER visit.
Poor little P had a fall and as the Mr. says...
'It was like a football player' head-bang into the laundry basket.
She thinks she can stand up an walk.
Truth...we aren't there yet.

I wasn't home at the time
thank goodness cause apparently there was a lot of blood.
(I would love to be in the medical field but can't handle blood)

I was surprisingly very calm through the incident
We headed to the Urgent Care
but then she was falling asleep on us.
Scared us silly so we made a U-turn for the ER.
Flashers on and speeding.

End of the day we learned...
- it's okay for her to fall asleep
(apparently not a big deal for a kid who falls on the head to fall asleep?? so the nurse said)
 - children under 2 don't get CT scans unless they hit concrete or another very hard surface
(not a laundry basket)
- after a gross puke in the ER
(note: ran out of the house no diaper bag = very smelling and messy baby and daddy = embarrassed mama)
- they sent us on our way with Tylenol and Neosporin.

Our first 'over reacting' parenting experience.
But I'm okay with that, better safe than sorry.
Parker is such a sport, she makes it hard to tell when she isn't feeling well.

Pinterest Recipe - Skillet Lasagna

What did we do before pinterest?
I will admit most recipes I try are a total flop.
(It's possibly me not the recipe.)

This one was crazy easy and will be in our dinner rotation!

Easy Skillet Lasagna // comforting, family friendly, weeknight heaven
I skipped a few steps so here is what I did to make it a bit faster:

8 lasagna noodles 
(I gave in and used 1/2 whole wheat which I don't prefer, trying to get healthy up in the bungalow, but I wasn't ready to commit to all whole wheat)
5 cups spaghetti sauce 
(I make a big pot of sauce each month and freeze)
1/2 cup ricotta
8 oz fresh mozzarella
8 fresh basil leaves

Step #1:  Break noodles into thirds and place in big skillet (with tall edges and has a matching lid)
Step #2:  Pour in spaghetti sauce and bring to simmer.  
Cook until noodles are soft but not overcooked.
Step #3: Add heaping 1/2 cup of ricotta and mix a little but not too much
Step #4: Layer the top with slices of fresh mozzarella (yum) and cover
Leave until mozzarella is nice and melty and creamy (double yum)
Step #5: Tear basil leaves and sprinkle on top

Bon Appetit!
