Rainbow Brite 3 (2)

Hi to everyone:) Yesterday, we had our big visit with our pediatric neurologist. We have a plan for how to handle Em’s epilepsy with medication for the moment..a MRI will also get done soon.. Please say a prayer that this medication works!

I have a new respect for moms with kids with special needs–what a different, intense lifestyle. Anyway, I still need to process all this for myself, but I wanted to say thank you to everyone who has sent their prayers and well wishes. I needed that!

We slept in until 9 am this morning!!

I also have a few giveaways I need to draw winners for–I will post those tomorrow. Thanks for hanging on.

Some upcoming giveaways? Well, yes:) I have a Rainbow Brite Doll giveaway I should post tomorrow. I was kind of sad to see Rainbow Brite is not her impish, chubby self, but as evidenced by the photo above, my girl thinks the new Rainbow Brite is just great.

I have a few others as well.  A couple of reviews…

And,some school today–just a two hour delay, which I almost slept through:) So homeschool, public school, cleaning and cooking, dealing with all the new medical stuff with Em…all this may go on today

Typing it up really helps me. But, really…that sounds awful–Nevermind.

This afternoon, I will school a little and get some MARDI GRAS going on around here tonight!!

monopoly_logoIf you are looking for some good, easy recipes and other ideas on ways to celebrate Mardi Gras around your house, go to the Zatarains Mardi Gras website.

I am doing a House Party for Mardi Gras with Zatarains. I received an awesome party pack–inside were masks, Zatarains mixes, beads, doubloons, cajun music ideas…even Zatarains rootbeer extract. You may remember we had a trial run Mardi Gras last Tuesday while we were snowed in:) That was fun and I have learned how to make a pretty killer Jambalaya! Any excuse for a party is nice with a house full of teens–tonight I’ll do Virgin Hurricanes in cool glasses, I hope.

PS: On their site, you can print out masks, get recipes for Carnival Jambalaya, and learn how to make Homemade rootbeer floats. (we did those–very easy.)

For a lot of these foods, they have mixes, so you can grab stuff at the grocery store and surprise your family tonight!

I also got a bunch of .50 coupons off  Zatarains mixes (they don’t say you cannot double, so you could get some deals w/these) so if anyone wants a few, just shoot me a comment.
