Pumpkin Dog Cookies

Hey there! It's a another beautiful day down south. I love living here! I'm so excited that Halloween is coming up, because it's my second favorite holiday. I love love trick-or-treaters, and I love dressing Effie up, too! So that got me to thinking... We always think about human trick-or-treaters, but we never think about our furry friends. So, I came up with the perfect Halloween treat for that special fur ball in your life - Pumpkin Dog Treats (or cookies)!

Halloween Popcorn

Hey there! Today's post is all about spicing up that movie watching snack that everybody loves - popcorn! It's a dreary day here in the south, and what's better than sitting on the couch, watching a great Halloween movie [Hocus Pocus, anyone?], and snackin' on some Halloween Popcorn?

Orange Velvet Autumn Cupcakes

Hey there! Today's post is all about autumn. I know Halloween is coming up, but autumn is about more than Halloween. It's about beautiful colors like orange, red, and yellow. It's about leaves falling and pumpkins. It's about hay rides and ...cupcakes. Ok, so maybe it's not about cupcakes, but today's post is!

Chicken Stew

Hey there! Wow, it's been a few weeks. Sorry about that. I got a new job, which I hated, so I quit. That took up a lot of my time, and I had no time for making awesome stuff for the blog. Now I'm back, and maybe I can decide on some goodies to make!

Today, I'm talking about one of my all time favorite fall meals, Chicken Stew!

For the Love of Pets

Hey guys! Today, I'm talking about something very serious that recently happened to us, and the great people that made it better. If you don't know, Hubby and I have no kids, and we have an awesome little dog, Effie. Effie is 5 years old, and as a miniature schnauzer, has a life expectancy of 12 to 15 years. Recently, Effie got a life threatening illness. I'd like to tell you about the great people that saved her life.

Blueberry Lemon Pound Cake

Hey there! Have you been seeing a ton of blueberry posts on pinterest? I have. Coincidentally, my lovely neighbor gave me a couple of pounds of blueberries about two weeks ago. I made some blueberry pancakes, then stuffed the rest in the freezer for later. Since then, I've been trying to figure out what to do with them. Well, I've finally come up with something!

Back in the Saddle

Hey Guys! It's been almost a year since I last blogged. Yeah, that's how long it's taken us to get internet in our new place. You know how budgets go. We are still paying two house payments, but our lovely new neighbor has basically adopted us. Hubby and I do small things around her house for her, and in turn she lets us use her wifi for free! Sometimes, people can be so great. We are truly blessed to have such a great neighbor.

Even though I've been gone so long, I have been working on a few things. Today, I'm starting off with a DIY project; later, I'll be showing you some cupcakes. Is it too early for fall stuff? I sure hope not!

So what's this DIY project, you say?'s a Chevron Cross!
