This past weekend I was invited to a get together for a running group I belong to on Facebook. The theme of the party was Tacos & Margaritas. Fun! The leader of the group asked if everyone wanted to pitch in money to get the hostess a gift, but I decided I wanted to do […]
The only thing I like better than picking out gifts for people is wrapping gifts. I love turning something plain and simple into something unique and fabulous.
For instance I needed wrapping for my niece’s birthday gift and she is turning 7 years old. I found a pink bag in my stash of bags.
I can’t believe I have never tried making cake pops. After trying for the first time I can see why patience and time is needed. No offense to the cake pop makers of the world but these little cakes on a stick are hard to make. It all comes down to the chocolate dipping…more on […]
This past Saturday I had a booth at the 20th Annual Taste of Oviedo. I have to admit I had high hopes for this day. We have been attending The Taste of Oviedo for probably at least 10 years now and it’s a fantastic family event. They have tons of food, business booths, a car […]

My hubby certainly knows the way to my heart…..Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup Hearts and flowers from the grocery store. To some this may seem kind of weak […]
This past weekend we celebrated my son’s 3rd birthday. Three! Really? It seems like yesterday I was waddling around with him in my belly. Time sure does fly when you are having fun!
My son is enfatuated with Lightning McQueen and the whole Disney Cars gang…Mater, Sally, Luigi. Honestly, I kind of like them too. […]
Over the years we (my husband) has accumulated hundreds of DVDs. This past fall we had a garage sale and got rid of 75% of them. That left us with about 100. Thank goodness because they were taking up so much space sitting in boxes in the garage I would give them the evil eye […]
So waaaaaaaay back in November I did my first craft show. Yes, I know that was 2 months ago and I am just now blogging about it. My apologies! I did the Great Day In the Country craft show in Oviedo. This show is sponsored by the Oviedo Woman’s Club and truly is […]
