What a crazy day!!!

I was at work today and a few patients at the front desk were talking about 'escaped convicts and lockdowns' and I was like ehhh..ok

Then one of my co-workers said something about Mokena being on Lockdown. My house (parents house, I still call it my house) is in Mokena. My mom dad sisters and brothers live there. So I kind of freaked out. The story was, 6 convicts escaped from jail and had robbed a house in Tinley, everything in Tinley and Mokena was on lockdown.

So Im calling my dad, he is at work 2 blocks from the robbing. Mom, sister, and brother are at work, could not get a hold of my mini sister but later found out she was at school. I was calling everyone like 'Oh geezz stay inside!' I get so paranoid when things like this happen. And having a big family means more people to worry about and keep track of.

My brothers girlfriend was at her salon, alone! She had to turn off the lights and lock the doors and sit there by herself.

So later after everyone is freaking out, we find out that is was just a robbery from 4 criminals. The hubbs met up with our cop friend who was flying the search helicopter [thats how extreme it got] and all that for really nothing.

I guess that after the Lane Bryant happenings last year they wanted to make sure nothing like that was related because it was so close. But thankfully it was just another everyday robbery [sad] and no one was hurt.

But it sure did freak everyone out!

So I finally calmed down and finished my work day.......draggg.

But when I got home I was excited to make these pretties. I love them so much because they are so simple yet so cute!!! and they taste amazing!!

Eggs and Bacon!!!!
and green eggs and ham :) I ran out of yellow
So these little ones are just so simple.....
What you need:
pretzel sticks
white chocolate [morsels or almond bark]
yellow or green m&ms
wax paper

1. Lay a sheet of wax paper over a baking sheet
2. Place 2 pretzel sticks next to each other on wax paper
3. Melt chocolate, see package for directions, But be careful, It is easy to burn!!
trust me, I know :)
4. Drop a dollop of chocolate over the two strips of bacon [pretzels]
5. Add a yellow M&M to the middle of the chocolate to create the egg yolk.
6. Put in freezer for 5-10 minutes until hardened.
7. Enjoy!!!

Oh before I forget, Lieutenant Whitey wanted to say good night.
