Happy Saturday!!

Hey!  Happy Saturday!  I normally don’t post on Saturday, but I wanted to talk about this past week.

All the new shows started this week.  I’ve only got to see one of them.  New Amsterdam.  O.M.G. it was so good.  I wanted to know who survived and who died in the ambulance crash.  You didn’t find out one until the end, but it foreshadowed where you figured it out.  I am hoping to catch up on the rest of the shows this weekend.

I watched the finale of Big Brother.  I am disappointed.  Neither of the final two deserved to win.  I did like America’s House guest Winner.  I am so glad Nicole got it.  The whole season was full of bullying and racism.  While the winner may have played a good game, that doesn’t overshadow his behavior as a human being and what he said during the season.
I am enjoying Rob Lowe's account on Instagram.  The comments from his kids slay me.  They are amazing.  You should go take a peak at it.

Steve Kazee has been all over Buzzfeed this week.  Who is Steve Kazee?  According to Buzz Feed and all the celebrity gossip sites, he is Jenna Dewan's boyfriend that she is expecting a child with.  Well, he's famous in his own right.  You might have seen him on Shameless as Gus, Fiona's hot ex-husband that she totally screwed over and he's a Broadway star.  His voice is to die for!  He was also on a Lifetime movie with Alyssa Milano called Tempting Fate, where he again got screwed over by his spouse!  Anyway, his celebrity news is really exciting!  I'm not much into celebrities, but there are a few I enjoy keeping up with.  I'm such a dork.
Alli cheered at a soccer game this week.  The team is 7-0!  And they have all been shut outs!  She taught the Lil Leaders this week and that continues into next week.  She always picks the itty bitty girls.  They moved the Friday night Football game up to 5 pm in anticipation for the big storm.  A lot of the area high schools actually moved theirs to Thursday.

Peyton had one game this week.  It was at 7:45 pm!  It didn't end until 9:30 pm.  Peyton is normally asleep by 9 pm.  We didn't make it home until after 10.  He went right to bed.

His birthday was yesterday!  He wanted money to buy a game, so I gave him money to buy his game.  Not quite as fun to give a gift of money.  He went to Golden Corral with his dad.  I thought I was taking him, but it's okay he went with his dad.  Sunday, we are having dinner at my moms.  He has still not told me what kind of cake he wants.

Tonight is the big Championship game for Fountain City Roller Derby.  You can read all about it here.  My team is the Shotgun Sheilas.  I'm excited.
Wednesday I ran league practice.  I always have so much fun doing that.  I get a lot of compliments.  I keep it fast paced and moving.  No standing around for us.  We learn as we go, we don't need 20 minutes of explanation with each drill.

This week has been a little quieter.  Which I have enjoyed so much.  

Enjoy my favorite cider recipe!

Caramel Apple Cider (Slow Cooker)
  • 64 ounces apple cider or apple juice I have used both and they both work great
  • 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 cup caramel sauce or topping, found in the ice cream aisle, plus more for garnish
  • Optional garnishes: whipped cream caramel sauce, sliced apples
  1. Combine cider/juice, ground cinnamon, and caramel sauce in the slow cooker; whisk well to combine.
  2. Cover and cook on low for 3-5 hours (however, you can't really overcook this). Serve in mason jars or mugs, top with whipped cream, caramel drizzle, and garnish with apple slices. Enjoy!


  1. I was pretty disappointed with the Big Brother finale. I am not surprised that he won but was hoping that Holly or Nicole would beat him out. Oh well... looking forward to celebrity BB now!
