The Perfect Independence Day Bring-Along – Jalapeno Poppers


Every Fourth of July since moving to Texas, we’ve spent the day and evening at my friend Teresa’s house. It’s a full day of kids, family, food, and skeet shooting off the upstairs balcony. In the evening, her husband and his brothers set off fireworks down by the pond in a show that rivals many professional ones I’ve seen. All she asks is that we bring a dish to share.

I’m the 40-something-ish wife of my beloved Computer Guy. I’m the adoring and incredibly proud mom of nine children…two saints…seven in training. I’m my brothers’ sister and my parents’ daughter. I’m a devout Catholic, an avid political junkie, able debater, aspiring home-maker, amazing friend, and I make the meanest Chicken Fried Steak you’ll ever have the pleasure of eating. I’m a homeschooling guru, a writing addict, a sometimes public-speaker, and an advocate for staying true to the person God created you to be. I can’t live in a house with white walls, sing Billy Joel songs while I wash the dishes, will read anything you put in my hands, and am completely obsessed with rhinestones and cute shoes. I am just like moms the whole world over, and then some.
