Look what I made.

My friend Jamie and I were talking about how expensive these tutus are. People are making pretty good money making these things. They are so freakin cute, i can't stand myself. They are so girly. So with a little thought and research, I made one. Its not perfect , but you really can't tell. If anyone wants one, I'm willing to make one. The big flower i got is from
I haven't found any flowers that compare to that one. It was worth the money.

Cafe Rio Shredded Pork Salad with Ranch Dressing

This recipe is for Jamie. This is the best one I have found. I hope you enjoy. To some of you that don't know about Cafe Rio Pork...its the best. Go ahead you Midwesterns, try it. I think you will love it.

Night Before:
3 ½ to 4 lb. Pork Roast2
Tbs Brown sugar
1 to 1 ½ tsp cayenne pepper
2 tsp cumin
1 tsp salt
Mix together and rub on pork roast.
Put in crock pot on low. Cook all night.
Next morning, add:
1 can coke
1 cup chicken stock
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 small onion, chopped
Keep cooking all day in crock pot on Low.
About an hour before serving, shred roast and add:1 cup brown sugar or to taste

Salad Dressing:
1 pkg. Hidden Valley Ranch dressing Mix
8 oz. can Salsa Verde
2 cloves garlic
¾ cup Mayo
¾ cup sour cream
¼ tsp Tabasco Sauce
¼- ½ cup fresh cilantro

I serve this over Shredded Lettuce and crunched up tortilla chips and top with beans, pork, dressing, cheese. The dressing makes a ton.... Yum

Gardening with the inlaws

We have been doing some gardening with my inlaws. The kids were so excited to get dirty. We even bought the kids a cute little shovel. The kids were great little helpers, i wish i got a picture of Wyatt watering everything. He was having so much fun.
I love this picture of Clayton. Poor kid wasn't feeling well.
"I dare you to eat it" "No way!!" Good thing, Wyatt doesn't fall for peer pressure.

Time outside

We had a lot of rain the past week, so we had to make some tents. Here is Wyatt and his friend Kaden. The boys and girls were playing princes and princesses. The boys were rescueing the girls in the tower(the bunk bed) It was pretty entertaining. We also had some great days at the park with out all that heat. It was lovely.
