Tuesday Before Thanksgiving :)

I have been preparing for Thanksgiving.  Oh, boy do I love it

For my birthday last July...July 24th to be exact...I turned 47....47??!!!  I am thrilled to be 47 and a few grey hairs have popped husband says he can't see them...but I do.  I have earned them and I am so happy to be 47...every day I am here is a gift from God and I am thankful :)  Anyway, here I go digressing again.....for my birthday, my husband got me a new computer...a laptop.  I have never had a laptop kids all have them, my husband has one...but I have always used a regular desk computer.  I never realized the freedom the laptop gives you...I am still getting used to it.  BUT!!!  This means I can hopefully BLOG in the carline, before

Not sure how to fix my am a comic sans girl...

I made the Italian Christmas cookies today with my daughter.  My beautiful daughter is now 16....she is just lovely and SMART!!!!

Tomorrow I will be do everything possible that I can, to prep for Thanksgiving.  I do all the cooking so everything on my table is safe for my son...he can eat it all and know that it is safe  ......

    I am going to post this...and see how it posts on my laptop...this could be the start of something awesome <3 br="" nbsp="">

Getting Ready for Fall :0)




If you have not tried this yet, you need too.  It is sooooooo good :0)
As most of you know, I do not eat meat so I love it when I find something new and delicious and healthy.
This dish is Buckwheat Soba Noodles with Smokey Maple Tempeh.  Google Tempeh if you are unsure of what it is *Wink Wink*

Happy Tuesday!

Hope everyone is safe and sound after Irma!!!
Much love!

I hope everyone is having a wonderful summer...we have been spending a lot of our days at the pool, getting a lot of Vitamin D...LOL.

Today we are going to just relax at home and I am going to catch up on some organizing I have been wanting to do.  I bought a few new cookbooks that I am excited to read, too.  I am hosting Father's Day plus a Birthday party on the 19th so I want to prepare my menu for that...You all know how I love to entertain :)

We have a movie and lunch out planned for this week, too.  We are going to see Angry Birds..anyone see that yet?

We will go to one of the safe restaurants that is on our list..there are just a few that we can go too...

Kevin's Allergy is always a learning is a 24/7 job..lots of researching and planning goes into keeping him I have always said, NUTS are EVERYWHERE! We are in this together though :)

My dearest friend here though is in it with me, she has a child also with food allergies, so she "gets" me and I "get" her :) I thank God for her, it is nice to have a friend that I can talk with about this.

It has been really nice here..lots of sun and beautiful pop up rain showers..I just LOVE the weather here.

Tonight's dinner will be leftovers, considering I have a lot of leftovers..LOL.

Cheers to a Happy and Safe Summer!
Coffee time XO XO


The lazy days of summer are here :)  Two wonderful months of sunshine, poolfun, relaxing and not having to set the alarm.  We had a wonderful school year, but I so look forward to summer and having my babies home.

Look at what I get to see every single day!!!!............I drive past these little loves everyday.  Lots of Mama cows and their precious...I just adore cows :)    Pretty as a picture!


I think it is very important to have nice clean nails...I love the pink and white look (French)...for those that are long time readers, know that ...LOL.  My daughter likes to paint her nails...and I tell her once the polish starts to chip, take it off or fix it.  It is one of my OCD things....I always notice people's nails...keep them clean ladies :)

We are not in Cali Anymore...LOL

Wowee.....Now, that is cold...LOL
I wake up in the morning and it is so warm and cozy in our home.....I always go out and start the car, so it is nice and warm for the kids, for when I take them to school.  Plus, it melts the ice off....My car is too big for the it has to sit in the driveway :)
