{A Whole Lot of Baking, Cooking and Loaded Tea Making Going On}

  Happy Sunday Afternoon friends. Hope you've all had a great week. I've been doing some cooking, baking and tea making.  I've really been enjoying making and creating loaded teas, shakes, smoothies and coffee drinks. I have not been writing down my recipes but guess I need to start doing that so I can remember what all I done! LOL!  I try to stick with healthy and low calorie drinks and have so many different things that I want to try.   But, this is an easy way to get extra vitamins, or Collagen, or protein.  I drink lots of water and this helps to give me something to add a little extra taste.   Mercy, I'm having too much fun with these teas. Decided to do a little baking this weekend too for my family. Pumpkin muffins with brown sugar topping was on my list for sure. I had enough batter left for miniature pumpkin chocolate chip muffins so baked a batch of those. If that wasn't enough already, I baked up some peanut butter cookies with chocolate chips. Needless t

{Making Memories}

I hope that you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving holiday. Our family sure did. Just a few pretty desserts on our Thanksgiving table. We had so many desserts and as always lots of good food. With a family of over 50 in attendance you better have lots to eat huh?   My husband says every year that Thanksgiving is his most special time of the year. His reasoning; No one seems to be in a hurry. Everyone actually takes the time to visit. No one expects something from you. And....the food is GOOD!  My whole heart stands in this picture.   We also celebrated this granddaughter's 10th birthday. She is now DOUBLE DIGITS!  She is such a sweet girl and has a heart for Jesus. Makes this Nana proud.   We also celebrated with these two grands for harvesting two nice bucks. My granddaughter Mallory and grandson Conner showed up the adults with their deer hunting skills. In one of the pictures is their great-grandfather AKA 2-Pa and of course the other picture is

{Just a Thrifting, Partying and Feasting}

There's a little girl In the neighborhood Her name is Cindy Conner And her thriftings looking good.... Now I will be singing the John Anderson song, "Just a swinging" the rest of the day. LOL!  It's been a while since I have been thrifting and decided to do a little. So glad I did. I found the cutest little snack plates with matching cups. A service for 8 matter of fact and for $16. YES, you read correctly. 16 bucks for a service for 8 and not a chip one on any piece. MY KIND OF THRIFING! I know thrifting isn't a real word. But it's my word now cause I made it up! LOL! Then I found these cute snack plates too. I have these exact ones. Matter of fact I have several different patterns of snack plates. They didn't have the cups to match but I also have tons of little clear cups that I can use.  They had 8 of these plates for a total of $2.99. Not $2.99 each...but all 8 for $2.99! Girls, I cannot pass up a deal like t

{Tea Cup and Mug Exchange} So much fun!

I joined the talented and gifted Stephanie from The Enchanting Rose blog for her tea cup and mug exchange. This was my 3rd time of participating and it was so much fun. Stephanie will be posting on her Blog about the exchange on Wednesday so be sure to hop over there this week and visit.   Linda from  was given my name to send a teacup too.   She went above and beyond and needless to say, I could not wait to open my package when it arrived. It felt like Christmas opening up all those sweet packages. I am in love with my new tea cup! Isn't she a beauty? And of course I named her, "LADY LINDA" . Just look at all the sweet things that Lady Linda sent to me! Look at that precious Dress Dish Towel she made for me! So, so cute! It was so nice to make a new blogging friend and I truly do enjoy our exchanges. I was given Margie's name to presen
