Happy Easter everyone! I hope that today you have a great day filled with family, friends, sunshine, chocolate and fun! If you have munchkin’s around, I hope the Easter Bunny came and left them a few little treats (after all, all good kids deserve at least one piece of chocolate!), and that said bunny didn’t eat your Spring flowers!
Enjoy your day 🙂
Today is the day of love, the color red and roses – yep, Valentine’s Day. Usually I don’t really do much with this day, actually, I don’t think I’ve celebrated it in any form since I was in elementary school and everyone would bring in Valentines for everyone in the class!
This year Mike and I went and got a few Valentine’s photos courtesy of Lance Lee Photography. I thought that as a result I would share one of the photos with you all.
Mike, the cats and I wish you all a very Happy Valentine’s Day filled with love and joy. If you don’t have a special Valentine, enjoy it anyway, go for supper, eat cake, and treat yourself as well you would be if you had one today!
For as long as I can remember I have dreamed of, and hoped for the day I could finally own my most coveted kitchen appliance. Wait, what does that say about me if my most dreamed for item is a kitchen appliance? Not gonna lie, I like to cook and I love to bake! Well, this year on December 26 Mike made this dream of mine come true. We’d opened all of our present’s and the told me to close my eyes. I heard him go downstairs and come back up. When I was allowed to open my eyes back up there was a large box in front of me. Needless to say, I tore into it! What did I find? This . . .
Not only was it my dream mixer, it was in my color! I have always wanted a red Kitchen Aid Stand Mixer and now I have one. The start of having all red appliances has begun. Oh Mike, you’ve created a baking monster!

This year Mike and I decided to host Thanksgiving supper for his family (mine of course being in another part of the country – maybe next year). This was the first time either of us had hosted a big holiday dinner, either together or apart, and also the first time we’d had his family over for supper! I’m glad to say, it went off without a hitch, and I didn’t give anyone food poisoning 🙂
Mike’s mom picked up the Turkey for us and we provided the rest of the food. I spent the entire day cooking as the Turkey was a whopping 30 lbs! Now that’s a big bird. I also spent a little bit of time painting on a table cloth as the start of a new tradition. I discovered this idea on pinterest. If you don’t know what pinterest is, I both feel sorry for and jealous all at the same time. Most amazing thing and one of the best ways to waste/lose time.
The idea behind this is that you buy a plain light colored table cloth (cotton) and every year at Thanksgiving you use this cloth. Everyone writes something that they are thankful for on it and over the years they build up. I love this idea and can’t wait to see what our tablecloth looks like in 50 years!
I think I’m already looking forward to Thanksgiving next year 🙂
Well, we all know that it’s Easter weekend, and not only that, today if Good Friday. I’m sure that has some religious significance, but I won’t lie, I have no idea what it is – wait, is Good Friday the day that Jesus died on the cross? Coincidentally right now Passover is also going on. *Side note: Hey look at me, I’m learning things about religions!* Since when we get down to it, I really don’t know much about the religious meaning either of these holidays, we’re just going to skip to the fun part…another video!
I found this video because on of my friends posted, and I couldn’t help but giggle. It’s a bit tongue in cheek, and full of fun, but so far as I can tell it’s all in good faith. I hope you get as much of a kick out of the following video as I did, and if it offends, I truly did not intend to do so when I decided to share it. Enjoy!
