A Thursday at Home.....

It is Thursday and I am spending the day at home with Barkley B. It was not a scheduled day off but I am home due to illness! Even though I got to sleep in and lay around it still has not been a great day off. Being Sick is Never Fun..

I am going to try to post new and exciting things going on in The Sutherland's life! I have spent the day watching TV, starting this blog and sending out Recipes for a Recipe Exchange.. My Recipe is Moist Caramel Apple Cake... I can't wait to get recipes in return.

This weekend we will be heading back home to Troy. My mom had surgery yesterday and is doing great! So I will be spending the weekend relaxing with her and watching Chick Flicks.. I know it doesn't sound like much but in my crazy life it sounds Amazing. Jared is going to be hunting. I have yet to discover why this sport is so much fun but he loves it and that is all that matters.. We both enjoy our time that we get to spend at home with our family and friends. This Sunday my little cousin Avery will be turning 6 years old! I simply can not believe it. I remember the day she was born.. Wow how time flies when your having fun! Happy Birthday Avery! We Love you!

Last weekend I had the chance to spend time with Amazing Friends. Jared and I are so blessed to have such an amazing group of people in our lives.. We are so blessed!

This is Jared's deer that he killed with his Bow last Deer Season! He is hoping for a successful adventure this weekend!
