Saturday Favorites

OK, so it's not 31 days of Pinterest... though that was SUPER fun!  I may just bring that back in a new way each summer!  BUT, I think this will be a way to introduce Pinterest and/or other ideas, recipes, etc into the blog on a hopefully regular and doable (once school starts again) basis.

Saturday Favorites

One idea/tip/recipe per week. (At least.)

Starting today.

Walking Tacos

Have you ever had these?  Maybe seen them at a fair or such?  I had seen them advertised the times we've gone to the Indiana covered bridge festival (LOTS of fun!  Hope to go again this year and will blog about it more then if we do!) but we had never tried them.

Last year when we were having some rough times at home with Braeden, some good friends from church organized people to bring dinners for us on a number of nights.  One dinner that was brought was a home version of walking tacos... and we all fell head over heels for this meal, now a family favorite!

First, gather your ingredients for tacos, but instead of traditional shells you'll want to use corn chips.  I've seen these done with Doritos as well but we haven't ventured out that far yet! LOL :)
Our ingredients:
Fritos corn chips
taco meat
shredded cheese
sour cream

The beauty of a meal like this is that with each ingredient on the table separately, the kids can pick and choose what to add to their bowl.  (Liam and I go for everything while Olivia and Braeden leave out the tomatoes.)

Then add your items to a bowl and enjoy!

Like I said it's one of our favorites!!!  NOTHING is left after this meal!

PS... don't forget to check out our Facebook page and give it a "like"!  33 so far and once we get to 100 likes there will be a giveaway!

About Me

I am a single mom to four amazing kids; each of whom just happen to have been adopted. The first three were adopted through foster care, and we just completed an international adoption from Haiti. Our family has grown through adoption and I am all the more blessed to know each of my children. I worship a mighty God, teach Special Ed, love bargains, and am inspired by Pinterest... come along with us for the ride!

What you should know about HIV

-HIV can NOT be spread through casual/household contact. HIV is not spread through hugging, kissing, shaking hands, sharing toys, sneezing, coughing, sharing food, sharing drinks, bathing, swimming or any other casual way. It has been proven that HIV and AIDS can only be spread through sexual contact, birth, breastfeeding and blood to blood contact (such as sharing needles). - HIV is now considered a chronic but manageable disease. With treatment, people who are HIV+ can live indefinitely without developing AIDS and can live long and full lives. - People who are HIV+ deserve to be treated with love, respect, support and acceptance as all people do. Additional information on transmission of HIV can be found on the Center for Disease Control website:

Little Did I Know

Little did I know that the road would be so rocky
Little did I know that the trip would take so long
Little did I know that my heart could hurt so much
Little did I know that God is never wrong

Little did I know that love could be so powerful
Little did I know that a dream so far could go
Little did I know that God would place the right ones
Little did I know that my heart, so large, could grow

Little did I know that a dream has it’s own timing
Little did I know that this day would finally come
Little did I know that four souls would be sent to guide me
Little did I know that they would choose to call me mom

But God knew all along and He had a plan to follow
God knew all along that my dream would soon come true
God knew all along that we five should be together
God knew all along that I’d share it all with you
