They're baaack!

It's no secret that I LOVE me some coffee... What do I love more than coffee you might ask, well Coffee-mate Holiday Flavored Creamers of course! I was THRILLED to find that my local grocery already has my very most favorite...Peppermint Mocha. Yeah...I bought two large containers and mark my words...they will be gone in 2 weeks tops. I'm that addicted!! I think I may need a 12-step program. LOL!
After buying said creamer I found this recipe online. I am anxious to try it soon. But first, I am going to share it with you...If you try it, let me know what you think.

1 pint fat-free half-and-half (or regular, but I like the fat free, lol)
1/4 cup white chocolate chips
1/8 cup peppermint syrup (I got mine at Starbucks for about $6)
Change Measurements: US Metric

Directions:Prep Time: 1 mins
Total Time: 4 mins
1 pour the half and half into a medium saucepan. 2 stir chocolate chips into the pan. 3 turn the heat onto medium-low and melt the chocolate into the half and half. 4 DO NOT LET THIS BOIL. 5 Once the chocolate is melted turn the heat off. 6 give it a good stir and mix in the peppermint syrup. 7 Store in a container in the fridge for up to 2 weeks :)
Happy Saturday to you,

Yummy Cookbook...

If your kiddos are like mine, they are super picky. Recently our church had an amazing women's ministry event that featured an amazing speaker. She suggested this cookbook for busy families. With the name of the book fresh on my mind, I set out to find it as soon as I got home. First, I went to Gooseberry and was disappointed to find it cost about $30. So the thrifty girl in me went to work to find it cheaper. Well, the stars aligned and fate was on my side....I found it on for a mere fraction of the original cost. Boy am I glad I did! This book is chock full of AMAZING recipes. Not just any recipes, but recipes my kids will actually EAT! Easy Chicken Pot Pie, Oven-Baked Chicken Fingers and Pizza Mac & Cheese....just to name a few. If you have picky eaters or just a busy schedule that doesn't allow alot of time for cooking, this book may be for you! Go check it out. I'm sure you won't be sorry that you did.
Happy Sunday,

A trip to the patch...

Every year we go to a local pumpkin patch. Sometimes I would like to try a different one, but I have become so fond this one in particular it's hard to break tradition.
Here is The Bug and sweet Bug-a-boo. What an amazing big sister she is. She adores him. In fact, I believe it to be a mutual admiration society! LOL!

How cute is this fella???

Me and our Little Man! Can't believe how big he is these days. Plus, the kid eats like a horse. I can't imagine what it will be like when he is a teen and Bug-a-boo is his age..Yikes!

The Daddy and Bug-a-boo...

Finding the perfect pumpkin...

Happy Friday,

14 years...

I can't believe how quickly time flies...On Tuesday, The Daddy and I celebrated 14 years of wedded bliss. It doesn't seem like it's been that long. Yet, looking back at all that's happened in that time it seems like a lifetime ago. I am so thankful to have such an amazing man in my life. God must have been thinking of me when he created him. I feel so blessed to be married to my very best friend. We laugh together, love together and play together. Happy Anniversay Mister! I love you to the moon and back!
Happy Friday,

There is just something about aprons that bring me great joy. Especially vintage or homemade aprons. Maybe it's the history behind each one, or the time and love that goes into making one. Here are just a few of my favorites....

This one is for kiddos and I LOVE it! Isn't is just darling?? I found it at Sugar Chic Baby

My daughter may need one of those. They are just so sweet!

And how cute are these??? Certainly too cute to cook in! I found them on Bandelle Blog. I ADORE Them....

I must say Jessie Steele sure knows how to make work look pretty... Plus, don't ya just love the vintage kitchen??

I wouldn't mind cooking and looking beautiful while doing it! How about you? Do you have a favorite apron??? Or better yet, an apron with a story to tell?

So, I've been playing....

My lovely sister and I have decided to open an Etsy store. I am so thrilled about this, yet VERY scared. My sister is amazingly talented. She sews and crafts with ease. Me...well, not-so-much. I'm pretty sure that when God was giving out the creativity gene I was in the bathroom. However, I promised her I would try to come up with some things to add to this new store. Here is my first...It's not good. I was just practicing. I just got a new-to-me sewing machine and have every intention of learning to use it, but until then...I had to hand sew. Ugh!!! At least this gives you some kind of idea of what will be in our Etsy store...only it will look 100times better than this:

I'll be keeping you all posted. Have a lovely Friday,

It's more than time....

So, I've decided that it is time to lose some weight. In April I had my gallbladder removed and since then I have gained 20lbs. Ugh! I was down to a size that I never would have dreamed being in again. And now, the weight is creeping back on. So, today I took action. I'm so excited to say that I broke down and exercised!!! WOOHOO! I only walked a mile in 20mins, but still that's gotta count for something...right?? Anyhow, I have decided to make Monday my weigh in days and will keep you all posted. In the meantime, I'm trying to find some great recipes that I will be sharing with you before long. Have a recipe you think I should try? Feel free to send me an email!
Feeling a little lighter already,
