Easy Chicken Pot Pie

Here is a chicken pot pie recipe a lady I work with told me about! It was tasty and very easy! We will definitely be making it again!

What you will need:

  • 3 cups of cooked chicken

  • 1 16 ounce bag of frozen veggies (thawed)

  • 8 ounces of Velveeta cheese (cubed)

  • 1 can of cream of chicken soup

  • 1 can crescent rolls

Preheat oven to 375. Mix chicken, veggies, Velveeta, and soup in a 9x13 dish. Cover mixture with crescent rolls. Bake for 20-25 minutes until top is brown. Let cool and enjoy!

Game 10

This week the football game was moved to Thursday night, because there is suppose to be bad weather coming in tonight. Both schools wanted to make sure and get the games in since play-offs will start next week. It has really thrown off our schedule!

I was VERY disappointed, because I had a mid-term for school and was unable to go to the game. I was at least able to listen to the game on the radio after I finished my test. I don't have a picture of the cheerleader's sign, but I found a really cool picture of a PANTHER!!!

The Panthers played East Hickman at their stadium. The game went really well! We were able to pull out a 34-0 victory. Another team in the district that we needed to lose to secure our play-off spot lost, so we will be starting play-off play next week! Stay updated on the PANTHER'S PLAY-OFF RUN!!!!

Game 9

Friday night was our 9th football game. The game was away against the Fairview Yellow Jackets. I almost didn't get a picture of the sign, because the cheerleaders were running late. They literally ran from the bus and onto the field. I'm glad they made it, because I have only missed one sign so far this season! Here was the sign for the game:

It says, "Panthers.....Nuff' Said!"

The game started out and our guys were doing really well. We went into halftime with a lead of 14-0. I really don't know what happened after halftime, but we couldn't keep it together and ended up losing the game 21-23.

This week is a must win if we want to make it to playoffs. Yes, you read right, we can still make it to the playoffs with only a 3 and 7 record (right now our record is 2-7). I won't even try to explain it to you, but it is a crazy new system Tennessee is using this year. Check back with the blog to see how the Panthers finish off regular season play!

Aubrey & the Old Navy Puppy

I was able to spend quality time with my little niece, Aubrey Grace, over the weekend. Saturday me, Aubrey, Rylie (Barrett's brother) and Paula (Barrett's sister) went shopping. We made several stops, but Aubrey's favorite was Old Navy. She climbed right up on the puppy on display and started trying to rock on it like a rocking horse! It was too cute! I just love being an aunt!

Dad's H.S. Reunion

My dad had his 30 year high school reunion a couple months ago. I thought their picture was AWESOME! Check it out!

Don't they look great?

Love you Mom and Dad! :)

Game 8 & Sr. Night

Last week was our bi week, and it felt really weird not going to a ball game or posting about it! Friday we played Giles County for Senior night. It was FREEZING and MISERABLE outside. I didn't make it to the senior night festivities, because I waited until the last possible second to get to the game. I wanted to stay in my warm house out of the misty freezing rain as long as I could! I was able to get into the game just in time to get a picture of the sign.

It says, "We love our seniors!"
I really wasn't sure how our boys would do against Giles Co, because they are one of the hardest teams around here. However, they played them really well. The Panthers fought really hard in the first half and only let Giles Co. get a 6-0 lead. The second half our boys struggled and the game ended 22-0.

I was absolutely miserable during the game. My attire (3 pairs of socks, leggings under jeans, 3 shirts, big jacket with hood, scarf, gloves, and a blanket) did not do a good job of keeping my warm. I had prepared for the cold, but had not considered rain because the radar was clear before I left the house. Wet and cold DO NOT MIX! Here is a picture of me sitting at the game.

All I can say is I definitely have PANTHER PRIDE!

The first thing I did when I got home was take a hot bath and fix a pot of coffee! :)

Next week we play Fairview away. Keep watch for more Panther football posts! :)

Sleep Over at MY HOUSE!!!

Yes, you read the title right! I am CRAZY and had a sleep over for the high school volleyball team Saturday night. Barrett went out of town on a "guy trip", so it was just us girls!

We ate pizza, chips and cheese dip, cookies, and brownies! The night was filled with Twister, Guitar Hero, Taboo, "Booty Popping" dancing lessons, a movie, a lot of laughter, and of course not a lot of sleep! I really enjoyed having all the girls over, and am still paying the price from lack of sleep!

Thanks for a fun and memorable night Lady Panthers!


This past weekend was Oktoberfest in Hohenwald! I remember Oktoberfest last year, but didn't really have a chance to see what it was all about. Basically, it is a festival with arts, crafts, live bands, great food, and miles of yard sales. Last year I went yard saling, but this year I checked out the arts, crafts, and food! This is a picture I took walking up to the arts/crafts fair. You can see the little white tents in the distance!

The best thing about Oktoberfest is the particular the apple fritters! They are AWESOME! The best way to describe them is, they are a dough nut type things filled with apple slivers fried. To finish them off, they are rolled in a ton of confectioners sugar and served warm! All I can say is absolute heaven...hence my face in the following picture!

Looks like I will have to wait until next year to enjoy another bag of apple fritters! :)

Bindi's Favorite Commercial

I don't know if many of you have seen the Toyota commercial with the couple in the car looking for their dog. They have the dog's squeak toys and are driving around, squeaking them trying to find their beloved pet.

The first time Bindi heard the commercial she went NUTS. She tried to look all around the television for the toy making the squeaky noise. I was able to capture Bindi's reaction to the commercial, thanks to DVR! It was sad and funny all at the same time!

Game 7 - Homecoming

Lewis County's Homecoming game was last night against Marshall County. It is crazy to me how different Lewis County does their Homecoming festivities. The Homecoming queen and the court have been decided for several weeks. Each class has one representative and the seniors have a representative and the Homecoming Queen. The Homecoming queen picks not only her dress, but also picks out a dress for the attendants to wear. It really reminds me of a wedding, especially because the last two years the Homecoming Queen has worn a white dress. Also, the festivities take place before the game and the bands take the field during halftime.

Here is a picture of the 2009 Lewis County Homecoming Court:

I am VERY disappointed in myself. I actually missed getting a picture of the sign! I was trying to focus my camera to snap the shot and the boys ran through before I could get it. The sign was simple. It said "Homecoming" with a yellow crown. Here is the picture I was able to get :) :

The Panther's were able to pull out a win over Marshall County 28-18!!!! Our record to this point is 2-5.

I was able to get a picture of my hubby in action hanging out of the press box. Isn't he cute?!?

Next week is our bi-week, so there will not be a game update!
