It all started Friday night after my husband got home from work. Teagan and I prepped dinner and had it sitting on the table when Lance walked in at 7PM sharp. We made a salad that I found somewhere online-- I was thinking it was a Blog that I follow, but cannot, for the life of me, find the link to the website. Anyways--Talk about a labor-intensive salad that is oh-so-worth-it...
We chopped. -romaine lettuce, green pepper, onion, salami, fresh mozzarella, olives, parsley, garlic
We mixed. -balsamic vinegar, olive oil, salt, pepper, dried basil, sugar
We combined. -the dressings with the prepped salad
We DEVOURED. -OMG, this salad was so amazing- and light and refreshing, too!
We also made some homemade garlic bread wedges to go with our yummy salad. I wish I had a picture to show you what it looked like, or exact measurements so that you could go make some rightnow! Seriously, DELISH!

|A little wedding date with my hubby, 9 days before Juliana's Due Date!|
Because we only got one day with Lance (due to his stupid work schedule), he headed back home Saturday night, which left Teagan and I to spend our Mother's Day together with my mom! My sister, her fiancee and their three kids came over, too. We definitely missed my brother, but he's out in CA for work. It was such a nice dinner.
Mother's Day Menu: BBQ ribs, bow-tie salad, baked beans, twice-baked potatoes and a DELICIOUS trifle for dessert. It was the perfect ending to a PERFECT weekend!
|Super Quick and Easy Berry Trifle|
Directions: Mix pudding according to package. Add Cool Whip. Cut up the angel food cake into 1 inch chunks (I do it right in the package so it's not messy!). Slice the strawberries. Create the trifle with the pudding mixture, berry mixture, and angel food cake, and continue to layer until all of the ingredients are used up! SUPER Quick and Easy, too!! This is always a crowd-pleaser!
*39 week prenatal appointment for sweet Baby Juliana today, and hoping some progress is being made, as I have been a complete crampy-mess since last Friday :)*
