Happy New Year!!!!

I hope everyone had a safe, stress-free holiday season with family and friends.  As for me and mine it was fabulous.  I had a great Thanksgiving with my family, had family portraits taken the following week (and they turned out amazing), had Christmas dinner with my book club the next week, my annual “Girlfriends Dinner…

The thing that made for a bad flight

Hello, We’ve been vacationing…..  I took a few days off with my book club members to attend the annual Lori Foster Author/Reader Weekend and then came home on Sunday to fly out on Monday to go to Florida with Stan and my babydoll.  I had every intention of posting while away, even went so far…

Although I haven’t been posting much lately, doesn’t mean that I haven’t been doing anything post worthy. I have. I’ve been taking pictures of things that I’ve been making, just haven’t had the time to actually tell you guys about it. I’m going to change that. Also…I got several positive responses from you guys about…

Menu planning anyone…

I believe I wrote a post about menu making sometime last year…I need to check to see. But a conversation with my mother the other day had me thinking that maybe I should go into more detail about the importance of menu planning. My family is one of three (four if you include my Sasha…

Happy Friday Everyone, I hope that you have had a blessed and wonderful Christmas week.  We started off the Christmas weekend/week hosting my families Christmas get-together.  Normally we have this on Christmas Eve, but Stan asked that we do it the Saturday before allowing us some extra last minute shopping time if we needed it…

Cork Vaca: Final Days

This is my last tidbits from our family vacation.  The last couple of days of our vacation were really laid back.  We hung out on the beach both days (I didn’t take my camera because I really wanted to chill-laxe.) and headed to the room for showers and our other outings around 4 or 5pm. …

Cork Vaca Day 4

On the fourth day of our vacation, we decided to chill out on the beach. We I arose bright and early at 6:30 am to spend some time with God on the patio overlooking the beach.  It was so sunny and beautiful and was giving promises that it was going to be a beautiful day. …

Cork Vaca 2012, Day 2 & 3

With me being sick on my birthday, I felt like the next day should be a do over.  We got up and had a nice family breakfast (this is why we always try to get a room with a full kitchen…who wants to have to rush getting up just so you can find someplace to…

Cork Family Vaca 2012

When we plan our family vacation, the babydoll has two requirements…a beach and a pool.  Because of this we have tended to find ourselves somewhere in Florida or California.  Don’t get me wrong we have traveled to some amazing cities that do not have a beach, but we can’t spend a week away and not…
