{Celebrating birthdays and Eating Cake}

  I shared with you last week that I was making cakes and freezing them for upcoming birthdays so today we reaped the harvest of two birthdays being celebrated. My soninlove David celebrated his 40th and my oldest granddaughter Raygen celebrated her 17th.  (David and his beautiful family) Of course I let my granddaughter pick her birthday meal and it was fried chicken, green beans, corn, macaroni and cheese, rolls, and deviled eggs.  We had quite a good Sunday lunch. But, we usually do because I cook most every Sunday for my family. LOL!  I went by to visit her at work as she works PT at their gym and I carried her balloons to help make her day extra special.  Her birthday cake was a hit. I tried a new recipe as she requested a homemade vanilla cake and homemade chocolate icing. So, she got a 4 layer vanilla cake with all the trimmings. The cake was more the consistency a pound cake but it was hit.  A little homemade chocolate sauce with Reese Peanut cups and chocolate icing added the

(Pinterest Favs This Week)

 I hope that you all have had a great week. We've had some weird weather this week in Florida. One day it's hot and the next I am turning on the heat. Last night we had high winds with rain and today it was chilly. I think next week it's suppose to be sunny! Who knows anymore with the weather.  But, the weather never stops me from lurking around on Pinterest. I have so many boards saved. There are many talented and gifted folks out there that sure know how to inspire us Pinterest fans. I will share a few things that caught my eye.   Web Image I absolutely loved this outfit. Black and white will never go out of style and I love the classiness of black and white together. I love the cold shoulder tops and dresses. This lady is not only beautiful but she can sure style this outfit. There was not a link for me to attach but I wanted to share it. Do you like cold shoulder tops or dresses?  fiftynotfrumpy.blogspot.com There I go with the black and white again. I love black and wh

{It's All About Family}

  I am late in trying to get a post out this week. It sure seems time flies when you are busy. But, when busy with those I love the most then that's a good kind of busy too me. I hope that you all had a wonderful Resurrection Day. Our family sure did. We also have been celebrating my granddaughter Adalynn's 5th birthday. We call her Ada. She is such a joy and delight to our family. So, I want to share some family pictures with you all today of my family.  This was taken Easter Sunday after church. One of my soninlove's had to work so could not join us until that afternoon. We all attend, serve and worship together at the same church. Yes, I am beyond blessed and thankful.  So blessed to be these girl's mom.  My soninlove had to work but he was there in our hearts with his family. Our oldest two granddaughter's. They make life fun. My soninlove made it to the annual Conner egg hunt.  The Easter bunny came to visit us too.  I think our Annaleigh was excited to see the

{Enjoying Life, One Day At A Time}

  I hope this finds all my blogging friends doing well and staying healthy. I just want to thank you all for your sweet comments and prayers for Marty and I. We are doing well. Still fighting allergies but that seems to be quite the norm for many of us. We are truly blessed. My smell is slowly coming back day by day. Praising the Lord that I can taste. CRAZY at what we take for  granite. I go back in May for a another follow up and have been working on building up immune system. I have gotten quite good y'all at making all natural fruit smoothies, drinks and slushies.    I've tried several different recipes but mainly I have been making up my own recipes to play around with the different flavors. If the drink isn't sweet enough I add a 1/2 - 1 pack of Splenda and they work for me. I don't like banana's though so NO banana goes in my mouth. LOL! But I do love all sorts of other fruits though so it has actually been fun making my own little boost drinks. That's w
