Hello there!
It was a sunny but cold day today, no sundresses or flip flops today:)

Today was my errand day.
I went to Walmart and Publix....and got Kevin Subway for lunch.

Kevin had tried this at Walmart as a sample and really liked it.  They did not have any of these packs when I went to Publix I picked a pack up.  They are about $2.00

I have to say, it tastes really good....I picked some mushrooms out to taste.

This is what the finished product looks like.  I bought some skinless, boneless chicken breasts and cut them in cubes.  Cooked them and than added the sauce...easy!
I served it on rice, along with peas and a salad.

Tomorrow, I will be doing some housework.
I have to get the house ready for Easter :)

We will be having a ham dinner.
I bought lots of eggs for the kids to dye too....

Have a great evening

Dinner tonight was meatloaf, mashed potatoes and gravy, green beans and salad.

Monday :)

Happy Monday :)

I hope that today finds you happy and well.
I have mentioned in past blog posts that I watch You Tube videos. I have a computer in my kitchen, and while I am busy in the kitchen, I love to watch VLOGS by other housewives:) I love peeking into other peoples lives, and see how they do things, set up home, what they make for dinner, organize, etc.....

I came across this vlogger awhile ago, and she is just so interesting to watch.  She is very down to earth and someone we can all relate too, she is so endearing and very honest about her life.  I had asked her if I could share her channel on my blog and she said I could:)  I added her latest vlog and the one below this one, is a very inspiring vlog about 100 things she would like to accomplish :)

(P.S.  If you watch the videos here on my blog, scroll down my sidebar and mute the "Little House" music)

So if  you have a few minutes, visit her channel on YouTube,
Audreys WifeLife

If you see this Audrey, thank you for letting me share your Youtube Channel...your videos are just too sweet to keep a secret...LOL....Thank you for sharing your life on videos!

Happy Sunday!

Here is a peek at our weather this week :)

I brought my ferns inside, so they stay nice and happy....I don't want them freezing.

You all know, I collect cows, and I share them here every so often.  Here is my little cow sewing with her little sewing machine.  She sits on my dresser. I had left it behind here in Georgia the last time I lived here, and I am so grateful my SIL saved it for me....isn't she darling!

I also recieved my Better Homes and Garden Magazine this week.  So many magazines so little time...LOL......

Anything with Avocados has to be good, and you all know how much I love my salads :)

For dinner tonight we had baked chicken, steamed rice, lima beans and a salad :)

Can you believe Easter is right around the corner? 
Also, our one year anniversary moving to Georgia is this week, WoW!!! I will have to look back on my blog to see the exact dates when we left Cali and arrived in Georgia. 

That was fast.......

Have a wonderful evening

We were awoke very early this morning by thunder and lightening...and we are supposed to get it again tomorrow morning.  My little boy woke me up and said, "Mama, do you hear the thunder?"

This is the weather app on my IPad, it is so neat.......It is all live weather, not photo stills..the lightening flashes.....


I have to say, I totally am attracted to cute packaging...I just thought this shampoo for kids was the

I hope you all had a wonderful Saturday.
We did some shopping today, and I restocked some things:)

I am going to catch up on laundry after I post this.

For dinner tonight, my husband took over.
He made steak on the grill, baked potatoes, grilled asparagus, fried okra and garlic bread :)

Tomorrow, early morning, it is supposed to thunder and lightening again, so I expect I will be awoken by my little boy again, bless his heart :)

Much love and Happiness to all who stop by my little blog on the Net

Artichokes :)

Artichokes, the kids and I just love these :)

I just steam them, and eat them plain.  My kids like melted butter.  When I was growing up, my grandmother would make them on special occasions, and stuff them. I am thinking the stuffing was an Italian thing.  She made them wonderfully.  Bread crumbs, garlic, parsley and Parmesan cheese and lots of butter :)
I make them more often though, than my Grandmother did.


Today. I took my sweet parrot to the groomers:)

When we got home, she went right to sleep :)
She was tired, my sweet girl.

Snack bags :)

I make these little snack bags for my daughters lunches :)  These are carrots, I also do grapes and other fun things that aren't already individually bagged .  If the snack bag carrots are on sale, I will buy those, if they aren't, I buy the bigger bags of carrots and make my own snack bags.

I also bought a big box of Cheez-its, so I will make some snack bags of those , too.

Wednesday :)

Galatians 6:9-10

 And let us not be weary in well doing: for in due season we shall reap, if we faint not.  As we have therefore opportunity, let us do good unto all men, especially unto them who are of the household of faith.

(Beautiful verse from the Bible)

African Violets!

I got these beautiful African Violets for my kitchen :)  My husband picked out the pretty pots for them.  Putting a little spring time in my home!

Fresh Breath :)

You can always find mints in my purse.  It is one of my quirky quirks.  I have now added these into the mix.  I bought a 3 pack of these, one for my nightstand, one for my car and one for my purse :)

Weather For the Week!

Favorite Things :)

Spring is coming!
Although, I am more of a Fall and Winter girl!
I have so enjoyed the Seasons so far here in Georgia!
I do appreciate each season as it comes.  If you are a long time reader of my blog, than you know, I am a sundress, sandals kind of girl...that kind of contradicts my Fall and Winter part...LOl.  Hey, I am a Cali girl :)  You can take the Cali girl out of California, but you can not take California out of the Cali girl. 
I do so love the South though, very much!

   Here are some new hoop earrings I bought, always silver, never gold.  I did get some black ones too :)
Flip Flops!!
Some flat and some wedges:)
Hair ties!

I love these hair ties, they hold very nicely, but not too tight to give a headache!


Good Monday Morning!
This morning I took my daughter to school, and these trees were all in bloom all over the neighborhood.  This photo does not do it justice, they are so beautiful!

It is supposed to rain today, so I am going to clean and organize both fridges.  I wanted to do it this weekend, but never got a chance.

Happy Monday to you all


Oh, and for tonight's dinner, I took out some Cornish Hens.

Polish this week :)

This is the color of polish I chose this week for my fingers and toes:)  It is like a pearly white.

Ferns! :)

It was such a beautiful weekend.  It was warm.  I bought these two ferns for my porch.  I just love the way they look :)



Corned Beef, Fried Cabbage, Carrots, Mashed Potatoes, Bread and of course a green salad :)

We had green Jello for dessert:)

Happy Sunday!

Saturday, March 16, 2013


I took this picture of this home while we were out running errands.  Whenever we pass by it I always think of the history and memories this home holds.  The mother, how she cleaned it so and the children growing up here, and why or how it got to this point.  I think this home is just beautiful :)

Thankful Thursday!

Good Morning!!
There is no school tomorrow, YaY!!
Yesterday morning, I went to Kevin's school where he will be starting Kindergarten.  I had printed out all the registration forms, filled everything out. I got all the things they asked for.  I had to send away for his birth certificate, for some reason Cali does not give you one.  It was
$20.00 to get one.  I got it just in time...LOL.
I then made an appointment for the allergist.  So in mid April he is going to get tested to see exactly what he is allergic too. Oh, how I pray this nut allergy is a big mistake.

I started on my laundry last night, and I am almost done.  I brought my vacuum upstairs and I am going to start in my bedroom and go from there.  Dusting, straitening and vacuuming......
I have a pot of coffee on, and I took my chicken out of the fridge.  I am going to make a chicken and broccoli casserole for dinner tonight.  I am going to use the leftover chicken from last night, I made extra :)

It is cold this morning, but it is supposed to warm up this weekend.  Hopefully I can get my topsey-turvy :)

You all have a great morning!!

Sunday's Dinner:)

Portobello Pasta Bake!


Robin, the Crockpot beef and macaroni recipe is this:  I browned some ground beef and put it in the crockpot with some spaghetti sauce, I used Bertolli....I also added a few seasonings of my own...garlic, oregano...I let it simmer all day on low.  Then at the last hour I added cooked macaroni noodles.....  :)

Salon :)

 This was fun. 

Sissy asked to have her hair professionally cut and styled.
So we did some research, and found a really cute salon to take her too.  The lady was AWESOME!!!

Her hair tuned out beautiful!!

She wanted swoopy bangs :)

I hope your Thursday was lovely!

We had tacos for dinner :)

The morning, was so very cold!  Teeth chattering cold. 
Spring forward is this weekend, can you believe it?
I so love when it is dark early, I will miss it...LOL.  I am such a Fall and Winter girl!
Spring will be nice though.
I am going to do the Topsey-Turvey here.  Maybe I will have better luck here in Georgia, than I did in Cali.  Remember my dreaded Horn worm story about my tomatoes?

I did a little shopping today too.
All laundry was done....until everyone got ready for bed....

Vacuumed the upstairs
Dishwasher twice
Cleaned the Guinea girls' cage
Cleaned Tiki's perch
Pottied Axel numerous times...LOL.
Washed his bedding

Scrubbed my shower yesterday, Tilex is my friend, along with the Magic Eraser:)

Here in Georgia, I have a feeling as soon as the heat is turned off the A/C will go on...LOL.
Oh, and the bugs.....where do they go in the winter?
Where are all those wasps that chase me in the summer?  Where do they go?...LOL.

Dinner Picture Time!

Happy Wednesday!
Here are a few pictures of some dinners:)

Baked chicken, angel hair pasta, sauteed asparagus

Pork chops, macaroni and cheese, corn and a few fried mushrooms!


Crockpot Beef and macaroni.

All these dinners were served with a nice green salad :)

I also want to say, be kind to eachother.  Everyone on God's beautiful, green Earth has their own story, their own pain, their own sadness.  Kind words and smiles work wonders.  We all have happy days and we all have sad days....we are all human and make mistakes, none of us are perfect....
I wish each and everyone of you that stops by my little blog, much love and happiness all the days of your lives!!
This is your life, make God proud, treat yourself kindly and learn to forgive you and those around you :)

I still can not believe my baby is 21...LOL.

My Baby :)

Good Morning!!

Tony's Birthday is today:) 
He turns 21....I can not believe it...LOL. My baby is all grown up.  I was 21 myself in this photo.  Seems so long ago, and yet it also feels like yesterday.......

On Saturday, Kevin picked up his "New" car.
Wednesday he got his new glasses.

We also got him a new coffee pot for his home, with all the stuff.
I made him a birthday cake and I am letting it cool, before I frost it.  When I am done, I will take a picture :)
