Random Friday in the making...

Okay, so on this very Random Friday I would like to start with salad dressing.
Yep, you heard that right.....salad dressing.
I have become very fond of McAlister's Honey Mustard Dressing.
As a general rule, I cannot eat most commercially prepared salad dressings because they have MSG in them, and I am highly allergic!! EEK!!! So when I find one that I can eat, I usually stick with it, especially when it is as tasty as this Honey Mustard Dressing.
So tonight I decided to look up the nutritional contents, just to be sure they were in my range.
Now why did I do that?
A 3 oz. serving has 319 calories and 27 grams of fat.
That is crazy talk!!!
Oh my stars ~~ so now I will be discontinuing the use of this very delicious dressing.
Oh brother what do they do put a cup of honey to 2 tablespoons of mustard in this dressing?
I mean could mustard be so fattening?
Okay, I'm done.
Okay onto greener pastures =)
Dak had tennis districts this week.
Now sadly he was knocked out in the first round.
He drew a first seed from a large school,
but he played very well.
I was so proud of him and so was his coach.
It was great to hear him be so encouraging to my boy.
Thanks Coach B.
So here is Dak, and yes that is Sir Cuteness at the fence.
It was so cute.
At one point he went right up to the fence and said,
"Hi KoKo"
That's what he calls Dak....Uncle cute is that?
And of course Uncle KoKo looks up and waves and says hi to Sir Cuteness
right in the middle of the match...
Yep, now that was a moment.....
So sweet!!!
Look at my boy being fierce.
Serve it up my boy!!!
In your face..... =)

And then after the match, Dak came and sat by me and Sir Cuteness,
and we talked about the match and told him how proud we were of him and how much we love him...
Well, after our talk, he picked Sir Cuteness up and took him to the car for me...
So here they are being Uncle and Nephew....
See how cloudy? Oh boy that has been the month of May pretty much around these parts.

Hi Grandma.....
Look at this darlin' face...
Yep grab that spoon =)
Here's my boys...
And yes that would be a tennis ball Sir Cuteness is holding.
He is ate up with all things KoKo.
After a tennis match the other day, he went home and told his daddy all about it,
and he showed the actions and everything.
He acted like he was running from one side of the net to the other...
It was priceless!!!
He cracks us up!!
Well, in other Sir Cuteness news....
My mom decided to buy him an early Birthday present.....
a baby recliner!!!
Oh my stars!!
Have y'all seen these?
They are the cutest things and they recline and everything.
Check him out.....

Here he is kicking back....
How sweet is this baby?
I mean seriously!!!
Have you ever?!!
Well, we are finally going to have a warm, rain free weekend around here,
or so they say. I hope they are right. My garden needs some tending to, but
our yard needs to dry out first. It's a lake back there!!!
Dak is done with finals, and tomorrow is the last day of school for this school year.
WOW, it has gone so fast!!!
Senior year, here we come!!
Well I'm off to find a honey mustard dressing with more mustard than honey =)
Have a Blessed Friday,


  1. Look at your boys together... how sweet is that! I love Sir Cuteness in his little recliner! :)

  2. That is crazy dressing. I LOVE Subway's Honey Mustard dressing, but I don't know about the MSG content.

    Those are the cutest pics of Dak and Sky. And I've NEVER seen a bab recliner. How cute is that?

  3. Dawn,

    As always I love pictures of the two of three men in your life. Never gets old in my book.

    I asked Caitlyn to blog her entire Senior Year so I can get it published in a book and present it to her as a Graduation gift in addition to mine.

    Thanks again for the tip.

    Love and Hugs ~ Kat

  4. Don't you hate it when you love and think something is good for you and you find out it's not. What a bummer.

    Love all of the pictures and the new look of your blog. It's very cheery.

  5. Love it - Uncle KoKo. My husband's name is Noah and to friends kids he earned the nickname Unca(because the L is just too much to say) NoNo. It is fitting in more ways than one.
