Just made this tonight...very yummy and very easy, just how I like it! Couldn't help but pass it along:

Apple Crisp
4 medium tart cooking apples( I use Granny Smith), sliced (4 cups)
3/4 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 cup old fashioned oats
1/3 cup butter, softened
3/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
3/4 teaspoon nutmeg

Heat oven to 375. Grease bottom and sides of an 8 inch square pan with shortening. Spread apples in pan.
In medium bowl, stir remaining ingredients (except ice cream, duh!) until well mixed. Sprinkle over apples.
Bake about 30 minutes.
Serve warm, with ice cream!

YUM! : )

...thanks Betty Crocker!

Casey is sad...

...for Brett Favre.

Music and Lyrics

Friday night was pizza and pj's night at the Theule's. Boy Casey was in charge of picking out the movie, which is now on my "top faves" list, Music and Lyrics, starring Hugh Grant and Drew Barrymore.

I highly recommend it, cute, clean, and fun...I don't want to give it away, so go watch it yourself.

It's a New Year!

This year has started off pretty well for's what has been going on...

Braden's dad was in town this past week as he was here working on his doctorate program up at Southern. We enjoyed spending some time with him, and we were happy to have the bed in our second bedroom be put to use!

Since the beginning of the year, I've been training for a half marathon, which takes place in April. I'm slowly getting back into shape, it feels good and has been giving me more energy it seems. I follow a strick schedule, and have been taking advantage of the free access I have up at Southern's Rec. Center.

I started my new permanent position at the hospital I have been temping with since July '07. No longer am I in Human Resources, I am now a secretary to the nurse managers of the hospital. I have more freedom, a small raise, and I love it so far!

Braden has been working hard at UPS and has also started his reading for his J-term class that starts next week.

Whew!'s the weekend, time to relax!
