Some perks of having a birthday is receiving some extra money to spend on yourself that perhaps you may not normally have. So I was saving some of mine and decided to buy Ree Drummond's newer cookbook I've been wanting for awhile.
One of the reasons I enjoy her cookbook is the pictures she includes and of course all the yummy meals.
The other night I decided to try this yummy recipe:
Oh my, it was absolutely delicious!
I also found these delicious dark covered chocolate almonds at Target the other day. So yummy and a healthy snack in moderation of course. ;-)
In our pond we have a beautiful flower blooming that my Dad gave to us.
This past weekend we went to a skating party and Kathleen was giving it her all on those skates. I was so proud of her! Hayley was socializing away! LOl
That night Hayley went to her first 6th grade dance held at our local YMCA. It's for 5th and 6th graders and they have it monthly. She was super excited to go and hang out with her friends. :-)
My beautiful "little" girl is just growing up too quickly....
This closeup is one of my favorites....so young, happy and carefree!
Been busy reorganizing and rearranging things in our home. Also always working on my coursework for college. Trying to juggle a million things sometimes it seems. But I wouldn't have it any other way. Keeping busy is just one of many ways of actively enjoying life. Will be sharing some great yard sale finds and more in upcoming posts.
I captured this picture the other night that just completely melted my heart. Elvis our cat all curled up sleeping next to Kathleen and her cat "Kitty" that looks just like Elvis.
These moments I treasure and embrace each and every one. These two girls are my heart, my soul and my joy and I love every single moment I get to share with them.
