Pumpkin Spice Latte

Fall is my happy time.

It’s my favorite time of the year and I love everything about it. It’s Labor Day Weekend, the official end of summer, but for me… it’s been Fall for over a week. Continue reading

Painted Mailboxes for Good School Behavior!

Both of my babies will be attending school full time, starting next week.

Whoo hoo. Confetti. Streamers. Loud music and me dancing around with no “sound limits”!

While I took my little leprechaun with me to grab his school supplies this morning, we were scrounging through Hobby Lobby, and I came across these cute little cardboard mailboxes.

We were there to get a canvas bag, but left with a buggy full of goodies. (Shaking my head. That store should be off limits to me!)

Spiced Coconut Coffee (can also substitute white chocolate)

It’s almost my favorite time of the year, FALL, so I’ve already started making my Fall dishes and of course that means… lots of coffee confections.

I figure my kids are going to school, so that means it must be Fall, right?!?!

Now if only, we could drop this Louisiana temperature down, oh about 20 degrees. 🙂 Continue reading

It’s a Wubbzy Waterslide kind of party…

My little man is 4 years old tomorrow.

I cannot believe it.

Where has the time gone?

But today… it’s PARTY DAY!

And it’s a Wubbzy Waterslide Party. Continue reading

Back from Vegas and back into reality. Cherry Lemon Drop Cocktail

Sorry for the blog being quiet.
A couple of weeks ago, 9 days to be exact, I returned from a fabulous week long holiday with just my husband and myself in Las Vegas!
It was much needed and seriously enjoyed.

And we have sun!

Ladies and gentleman, the sun is out today!
Now some of you may not understand the significance of this… but I live in the Deep South. Louisiana to be exact.
One of the great things about living here is that it’s rarely cold.
To us, cold is like 45 degrees. Parkas and snow boots are a fashion statement (albeit one that makes absolutely NO sense, as we live in LOUISIANA), and really usually serve no logical purpose.
But for the past 3 weeks, it’s been COLD (like almost freezing) and wet. It’s rained every single day.
Around the state we’ve had a lot of flooding and a lot of damage from all of this water that has no where to go and no time to drain before even more rain is dumped on us.
BUT the glowing orb in the sky is out today and it’s a beautiful sight!

Chick Lit and Globs

Who knew my love of reading, my newly formed Book Club (because nothing is more fun than finding out people other than you have your reading tastes and getting FREE books loaned, right), and my love of cooking/baking would all come together?

Some friends of mine with the same eclectic reading tastes as myself recommended a series of light books 2 days ago.
After staying up late, reading in the jacuzzi at night, during nap time during the day, and during Carpool, I am on the 3rd and final book in the series and I’m feeling inspired. Continue reading
