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 :)

Valentine's Banner.....


OH, I was so proud when I made this....I think I was pregnant with Kevin when I made this.  I have kept it all these years and it still makes me happy when I hang it up :)

A little homemade blast from the past.

Took Ground Beef out for dinner.....details will come......

Happy is 27 degrees at this very moment.  Love it!!

Binder 2016

For those of you that know me, know I have always had a binder....I am now realizing there is quite a binder craze going on..who knew.......LOL.  You do not have to spend a lot of money to have a fact I think it is more fun to buy a simple binder and make it your own.  I bought this one at Target for about 12 dollars...and the stickers and embellishments can be bought in the dollar spot, office supply...etc....I use my binder clips that are just a few dollars to bind each month together...I think that is one of my favorite things to do with my binder.  Then I add stickers on Birthdays and important dates.  It is is my brain along with my desk calendar that coincides with my binder.  My binder also goes with me where I just never know when you may need it.
Happy Planning!!

New Refrigerator

 When we moved into our new home, we needed a new refrigerator.  This is the one I picked out.  I LOVE IT!!!  That middle drawer is what got me...I needed that middle drawer in my life.  I stock it with all sorts of wonderful foods.....I have my old fridge in the garage along with a deep freeze, so I am able to stock up well for my family.
School starts back up tomorrow, I went shopping and bought all sorts of fun and healthy foods to make their lunches with.  Alexis does not like to buy, she said the food isn't I make her lunch.  Little K can't buy food at school because of his food allergies, so I make his...and try to make them as fun as possible....Tony and Big K also take lunch there are a lot of lunches being made....LOL.  Do you make lunches for your family?  I am a SAHM and I think it is very important to make fun and healthy lunches for my family...along with breakfast and dinners :)  It's what I do...and I love it!
