take my word for it wednesday.. graduation is approaching and these short rib tacos where amazing..



 
let me apologize for my absence this past week.. you see i've been obsessed with my kids and their graduating.. i am so happy that jake is done with college.. finished, fineto, all done.. complete.. and we were thrilled to learn he was accepted into the boyd school of law here in las vegas.. soooo happy about that i was not looking forward to moving the boy, sam and their 2 dogs across country or even to the next state, arizona.. luckily we don't have to..
 
now shell graduates from high school in a few weeks and we are having her party this weekend.. and thanks to pinterest i might have gone slightly, a little bit, maybe a tad over board.. *shoulder shrug* what can i say.. i will post the party next week with all the fun and funky crafty things we did.. and last month shell had her senior photo shoot with an amazing photographer and friend of my niece jess.. sara ford fotos..

the pictures came out amazing and we couldn't be happier..


i uploaded the photos to cvs and made graduation party invitations that turned out so cute.. all in all i was very pleased with them, well accept for the fact i spelled celebrate as celegrate.. oh well..
 
it's been so busy around the house dinners have been quick and easy and this one was one of the easiest!! soo easy.. i initially bought  short ribs to make these korean short rib tacos but when it came down to it i was seriously in such a rush i sprinkled each short rib with taco seasoning then put them in the crock pot 1 cup of beef broth and 10 hours later amazing tacos were had.. like seriously amazing.. i have said it i don't like stringy meat and i don't like things cooked in a crock pot but these were sooo good!!
