{Happy December Everyone}

  Hello to everyone. I am so sorry that I have been missing in action with blogging as of late. I wanted to pop in and to tell you sweet friends that I am doing fine. Many of you have reached out to me. Marty and I have tried to do more hunting together this season and though he isn't retired he has taken an extra day here and there off so we have tried to hunt more. Marty's dad was also under the weather for a spell and though he is much better and able to hunt with us that surely requires extra time and attention and we are thrilled that he is able to go with us when we go. We've honestly had a lot going on and it would take too long for me to share. However, I wanted to pop in and say hey and that I do pray that you all have a very Merry Christmas. I am hoping to get back to some normalcy soon. Not sure what normal is at times but I give God the praise for every day we have.  I did harvest a nice buck on one my trips. The Lord just simply found favor in me on that cold G

Friday Favorites With Dawn

This gal has made it so easy for Friday Favorites. I'd like for you to meet Dawn Hoyle, owner of page book page called Simply Southern At Heart.
She shares decor, designs, recipes, and so much more on her facebook page. I sent Dawn a message to ask if I could introduce her on my Friday favorites and show off some of what she posts on her page. Of course she said yes but does want us to know that she does not own any of the pictures or recipes that she post. She finds the pictures on the Internet and from other favorite sites.

She actually needs no introduction....her FB page already has 16,033 likes · 58,145 talking about this. 
That could have changed already in the last minute!

Dawn said,  "I started this page as it is something that I love to do, it relieves stress and gives me happiness to see and share beautiful things.". 

Thank you Dawn for sharing with us. Google Simply Southern at Heart and check Dawn's page out! Love her daily show cases!  

Now here is a few things for my Friday Favorites from Dawn's Simply Southern at Heart....

Hiding the Ugly Hot Water Heater

 I shared that I wanted to hide my ugly hot water heater in my laundry room with you a few weeks ago. It just stuck out like a sore thumb. But after all it is a hot water heater right? So my man took a piece of wood (not real wood) but it worked and built a frame for me. So now to see if it would fit and it did. I painted it white and did not like the texture it had even after two coats of white. (rule of get what you pay for and the wood was cheap) But I wasn't going to let it whip me!  Found some contact paper at Walmart in the gray and white. Covered the front with the contact paper and loved the look. The top was covered with a piece of painted wood as well and worked perfect to place this on top... And this.... Added a clothes basket in the corner and here was the top.... Yep, no longer an eye sore to me! Went perfect with my gray walls and gray and white floor. Remember the wood tray I bought at a yard

{Pinterest Favs and My Simple Life}

  Isn't this Coleus just beautiful? I have about 4 of these pretties that I started out in just one pot and the next thing I knew I was replanting in different pots. We had a girls day out this past Friday and I enjoyed our outing so much. Cracker Barrel was first on the list and then shopping. Nothing like a girls day with your girls. Sure does refresh the soul doesn't it? I have had this little sign for a few years now and found it at Tractor Supply . I just love it but let me tell y'all can find all kinds of goodies at Tractor Supply. I went in recently to look for some seeds and well, let's just say I came out with more than I went in for!  Now for Pinterest Favs and these Yummy Chewy Brown Sugar Cookies are first on the list!   This recipe is tried and true.  YOU CAN'T EAT JUST ONE ! These things will melt in your mouth. The recipe made a large batch so needless to say family and friends were gifted cookies! Next time I make these I think I wi

{Another Fun Filled Weekend}

I hope you all are doing well. I am trying to wind down for the night and thought I would try and get a post out. Girls, by this time I am in my fat clothes and recliner smashing that remote control!   Marty and I kicked off our weekend by having a little fun food as I call it,  "charcuterie" style out by the pond. Of course I always fix more than we need or eat but it sure was good.  Two of our granddaughters had dance recitals over the weekend so we got to watch them perform and oh my! They were just the cutest things ever.  We were blessed to be able to see them perform. Then we celebrated a birthday for this sweet grandgirl! She was excited about being double digits . And besides all the fun from the weekend I was able to see some of my pretties in bloom.  Now to enjoy a cup of coffee.... I hope that you all have a wonderful, blessed week.  Hugs and blessings, Cindy
