Every year on St. Patty's Day, Jim has to have his Corned Beef & Cabbage & this year was no different, except we invited some friends over on Friday to join us. I put it in my new Kasey Kahne crock pot :) at 8:00am & just let it cook all day, adding the cabbage 2 hours before it was done. I also made Mashed Potatoes, homemade Mac & Cheese, Biscuits (okay, so I cheated with them & just popped them out of a can) & an Oreo Cream Pie for dessert. I guess it was a hit because we didn't have many left-overs.
On Thursday, our new family room furniture arrived. I wasn't sure if I even liked it when they delivered it.....I guess it was just because it was such a change from what we used to have (a dark navy blue sectional) & I was afraid I wasn't going to like this sagey-green (Celedon) color once it got here. But now it's really grown on me & I just love it! I can't believe how much it brightens up the plum colored walls, too! Even this furniture is putting me in a Spring mood :) It's hard to tell in the photo, but there's also a purple chaise underneath the window.....I've wanted a chaise for a long time & now I finally have one :) We also ordered 2 end tables that match our coffee table & we'll be getting them next week.
Yesterday, Jim & I bowled in a doubles tournament, but didn't do good at all. I hurt my ankle the other day, so I was afraid to even bowl. I ended up just bowling one game & then we got a sub for the next one. I did win $50 in a 50/50 raffle, so the day wasn't a total loss :) Then last night, Jim & I went to see the movie "Failure To Launch" & we both really enjoyed it. I read some bad reviews about it, but we thought it was hilarious! I love Sarah Jessica Parker, so I was happy to see her in a movie since Sex & The City ended.
That's all for now.....off to enjoy the sunshine. May God bless you with a beautiful Spring day!
