Happy Father's Day!

I am so lucky to have great father's in my life. My own dad, who would do anything for us girls, and LOVES being a Papa! My father-in-law, who always helps us with whatever we need and is such a fun Grandpa. My husband, who is sweet with the kids, helps me out when I need it, and is the best dad I can imagine. Happy Father's Day to all the dad's out there! You do an important job!

At least I come by it honest!

I'm a hoarder. I know this about myself. I have a hard time throwing things away that might be useful (or sentimental). This has caused there to be a huge box of stuff from high school still under the bed at my mom and dad's house. To be fair, I come by it honest. My mom is the same way. I'll never forget when my mom and my (now) sister-in-law, Jennifer, were both helping us pack up for a move. My mom wanted to transport things like a quarter of a bottle of ketchup from College Station to Dallas. Jennifer was urging her to throw it away and splurge on a fresh bottle in our new house!

Then, I looked in the back of the drawer in my refrigerator. What do you see?
Can't quite tell what's lurking behind the pie crust and won ton wrappers? Beside the crescent rolls and biscuits? How about a closer look?
That's right. Leftover ketchup packets from Whataburger (what is it with the ketchup? Are the Schneider women afraid that there'll be a tomato shortage soon?) and sauce from Chick-Fil-A! Most sane people would throw the unused packets away when they are done with their fast food meal. Not me! I'm turning into my mother more and more each day!

Watch out for me. It's only a small step from this, to filling my purse with sweet-n-low packets from restaurants!
