Yesterday for dinner my husband smoked a beef brisket in the smoker ALL Day......the results were, he was not impressed...oh well, at least he tried :)

Tonight's dinner I made baked chicken, mashed potatoes, and steamed veggies.

It was 61 degrees today, and then tomorrow it is supposed to drop back down to very cold :)  I enjoy all this is exciting for this Cali girl!

Did I mention my daughter is getting braces in February? She gets her choice of colored or clear, and she keeps going back and forth on what to get.  I would either get clear or pink ones...LOL...but that is just me.  I don't know why braces have to be soooo expensive...even with insurance they are still expensive.  This is an expense though, that will last her a lifetime :)

She will also be going to DisneyWorld with her school chorus, and she is super excited about it.  She wants to compare Disneyland to Disneyworld....Disneyland will always have a special place in my heart :)

There wasn't any school today~~~YaY!!!
Have a great evening my friends and sleep gently XO

Tonight's dinner was pork chops, cheesy potatoes and green beans :)
My husband worked today!
I cleaned out our desk downstairs that collects all the mail and magazines and ads...oh boy, did I throw out a lot.  It is nice and neat now.

I popped the hose on my Kirby..YES, I did.....right before Christmas, So I was using the back up vacuum we have, a disrespect against Hoover, but I sure have missed my Kirby.  My husband ordered the new hose and he put it in this evening, I can not wait to use my Kirby again...LOL.  I LOVE that vacuum!  Worth every penny:)

Happy Thursday!!
It is cold!!!
I have a cold still, and the worst of it is in the morning when I am waking up.  Getting out of the warm bed and feeling awful.  After I get up and my blood starts flowing, and I brush my teeth...and sneeze a bit, I feel better!  It isn't that bad, it is just annoying...LOL...I am not good at resting, I have a million things running through my head that need to get done!  I do juice, and I do add lots of garlic and oranges, but I still caught this cold. Juicing is a wonderful thing, it really does keep my slender....I also think the older I get my metabolism has gone on over drive....I don't know.
I am putting a roast in the crock pot...a Pork Roast...I was asked how I make it......I put the roast in the crockpot, add potatoes, peeled and cubed, put a pack of onion soup over it and let it cook all day :)  Pork Roasts don't seem to produce as much juice as beef roasts so I do add water to it......

I have a cold!  I did manage to get everything I needed to get done though.  I ran my errands and did the housework, dinner and such.  When I went to get Kevin from school, I had the heat on high in the car, oh it felt soooo nice!

Today I got the new Oil of Olay "Fresh Effects" products.  Yay!  I really like Oil of Olay, it is kind to my sensitive skin.  I still use my Ponds, which I love too

Here are my new wedding bands :)
I just love them!
Kevin has the matching band, too.
They sized my ring finger at a 4.5, but I think I could down to a 4, the only problem, is my bony knuckle...LOL....

The picture should say it all...LOL.
I did a lot of cleaning today, while it rained a good part of the day!  My husband worked and my children rested and played.  It was hard being off school for so long and than having to go back.....

For dinner tonight I made baked chicken and baked sweet potatoes with mixed veggies.....I forgot to take a picture...OOPS!

I am going to call it a night, I am a tired girl :)


I will answer recipe questions tomorrow......

It was a cloudy and wet day today.  It didn't rain real hard, just kind of drizzled on and off all day, and very cloudy.  The kids went back to school on Wednesday, and I miss them when they aren't here.  We went to dinner at the Waffle House, and now we have to be careful there because they now have Peanut Butter Waffles...Peanuts are EVERYWHERE....anyway, our waitress was very nice and I explained to her my son's allergy...he got hash browns and chicken that were nowhere near the peanut butter.....Then I got a Starbuck's after dinner, Peppermint Mocha!

Happy Friday!!

New Year's Day Breakfast Bake!

 I made this Breakfast Bake for New Year's Day morning.  I prepped it the night before.  I knew we would be going out to eat later so I wanted something simple. I woke up and popped it in the oven, and
ta-da~~~Breakfast :)
It was eggs, sausage, breakfast biscuits cut up (from the can that pops when you open it). A little green onion, milk and lots of cheese!

New Year's Day Dinner

 This little cow holds the cream for the coffee...LOVE IT!
  We went to this little southern restaurant that we all love.  It is like eating at The Walton's house.  It is all served Family style, and the hospitality is amazing!!! We had Beef Brisket and Fried Chicken with all the fixings.

Happy New Year, my friends xo

Happy New Year!

May your New Year be HAPPY!!!!!
