Theatrical Thursday ~ Feeding Fish

For the past 2 weeks we have been living in a hotel room while looking for a house in Houston.  We check out today and I expected to be completely sick of this place but it has actually been really nice.  We stayed at the Omni and the hotel is extremely nice with awesome people working here.  No, this isn’t an advertisement for the hotel, I have just been that impressed.  There is a big pond running through the hotel and one thing that we have done every day is let Kylee feed the fish.  The staff would get so excited when they saw us coming with Kylee and would give her a lot more fish food than they give other people.  Kylee always had fun feeding all the fish.  She actually got used to hotel life quickly.  She would run down the hall, push the button for the elevator, walk in when it opened, and knew exactly where to go when we said we were going to feed the fish.  Here is a video of her doing just that…

Theatrical Thursday ~ Sign Language

When Kylee turned 6 months old we started trying to do sign language with her.  The ones we did the most were please, more, and all done.  I think we pushed it for about 4 months before we gave up because she just refused to do it.  This month Kylee just all of a sudden decided she wanted to start communicating with us through sign language and she is learning a lot more now.  Here are 4 signs that she does.  I tried to teach her our own version of hungry by rubbing the belly, but she has her own sign for it by putting her hand up to her mouth, very similar to thank you.  It’s so much easier now that she can communicate what she wants!

Healthy Meals Monday ~ Creamy Avocado Chicken Salad

Last week I tried a recipe I found on Pinterest and we loved it so much I actually cooked it twice because I bought too many avocados and didn’t want them to go to waste.  Even though I don’t have the exact nutrients count this recipe is very healthy and actually doesn’t take long to throw together

Creamy Avocado Chicken Salad
1 chicken breast, cooked & shredded {I used a can of chicken breast}
1/2 cup black beans, drained & rinsed
1/2 cup corn
1/4 cup green onions, chopped
1/4 cup tomatoes, diced
1/4 cup cilantro
1/4 tortilla chips or fritos, crushed {We actually didn’t mix this and just used them to dip}
2 tbsp. white vinegar
4 tbsp. light mayo
Salt, to taste
2 diced avocados

Mix all the ingredients together and enjoy!

I made up an 8.5×11 recipe page and you can access that here.
