Spring Fling and Prayers.

Wednesday, March 28, 2012

I love my girlfriends
15 years and going strong
dinner once a month
restaurants, painting, tea room, beach
or just someones house
this time....
my house
Menu included:
Soup, Salad, Garlic Toast
Chocolate Chip Cookies and Oreo Cheesecake Cupcakes
Homemade Sangria
We had a wonderful dinner
After we prayed over my sweet friend Karen who is having surgery today
breast cancer
will you please keep her in your prayers.
She's a good friend and even better mama.

 Table - before I finished setting it though.
 Setting up the dessert bar - and glasses for sangria.
(sangria was a pinterest recipe and it was yummy)

 My sweet friend Tracy - always smiling.
 Another sweet friend - Barb!  Love her.
 These Oreo cheesecake cupcakes were the BOMB.
Seriously look them up on Pinterest - you will be glad you did!

 Kelly and Pam

 The group - minus a few.

 Place settings - little potted plants for everyone to take home.

 A little spring decorating.

More spring decorating
Loving all things yellow this year!

In conclusion, be strong in the Lord; draw your strength from Him.

I'm linking up with Becky from

This is one of my favorites
Easy and Yummy

Greek Chicken Salad

Romaine Lettuce
Green Peppers
Greek Peperoncini's 
Feta Cheese
Potato Salad

I buy Publix "Red" potato salad (in the deli section)
I bake chicken breast marinated in Viva Italian Dressing

Put the potato salad in the bottom of the salad bowl
Next layer with lettuce, tomatoes, cucumbers, green peppers, peperoncini's. 
Cut up the chicken breast and lay on top
Next, sprinkle with Feta Cheese

Right before serving pour the dressing and let it saturate through the bottom of bowl.
This is the ONLY dressing I recommend. 

I hope you like it :) 



Linking Up to Spring

Wednesday, March 21, 2012

Springtime make me want to conquer the world.
Having a total obsession with Pinterest make me want to:
*  Cook light beautiful meals for my family
*Clean and organize every closet in the house
*Bake cobblers and drink lemonade
* Lose 20 pounds and wear every pastel item on my "fashion board"
*Plant veggies, herbs and flowers
*Host a spring fling

So, I started by planting a herb basket;
consisting of:
Cilantro, Lemon Balm, Basil and Pineapple Sage
I would highly recommend the Lemon Balm
Put fresh leaves in my mango iced tea (crystal light)
and it totally rocked.

Had an awesome visit to my favorite produce stand last week
will post some pics later
of my meals

The season of renewal and rebirth is upon us.  Like a newborn baby, this season brings with it the sweetness of new beginnings and endless possibilities.
Come and see what God has done, how awesome his works in man's behalf!
Psalm 66:5

Easter is my favorite Holiday
Looking forward to hosting
hmmmm..... 60+ people.
My family, Steve's family and friends.
Our 11th Annual Egghunt and Kickball Game
I'm the captain of the Hunny Bunnies :)
Need to start shopping for trophies and treats
Can't wait!


 I'm so making this arrangement.

 Adorable eggs - will make these!

 How fun is this?  I've been Boo'd at Halloween but never Egged at Easter.
A lucky neighbor may just get egged!

 Going to make these for my nephews for
Pizza and Egg night - I can't wait.

 I love this Easter dress.  Working on dropping some pounds by then.
Hopefully -or maybe Navy - love that color for Easter too.

 This looks yummy!  Want to make some and bag it for my guests.

 Love this idea.

 Another treat for guest!

 Will certainly make these with my sister....she has a thing for peeps.

 Love these cupcakes!  So making these for dessert!

 What an adorable veggie tray!

Also making these on Pizza and Egg night!

What a week.
Started last Saturday seeing Lauren Alaina at the 
Strawberry Festival
my sweet friend Kelly in tow
Lauren is such a doll
a real Georgia peach
Back to the festival on Thursday
this time with my favorite girl
to see Luke Bryan

I don't think there was one teenage girl that
We had a ball
Back home to pack for the Pearl Event
Left Friday morning
bright and early
all by myself
a weekend full 
awesome ladies
heartfelt speeches
Praise and Worship
too much to even put in words
lost for words
in awe of their stories
Sibi, Sarah, Paige, Jane, Edie and Brittany
Met so many wonderful ladies
amazing weekend!

My current read. 

"7 : An Experimental Mutiny Against Excess" - 7 is the true story of how Jen took seven months, identified seven areas of excess, and made seven simple choices to fight back against the modern-day diseases of greed, materialism, and overindulgence.

Quiet Morning, My Peeps and Lauren Alena

Saturday, March 3, 2012

Nothing makes me happier than waking up
with all my peeps in their bed.
Robert is home for Spring Break
One Week
Will I ever get use to him not living here
I went to bed late
Got up way to early
6 a.m.
on a Saturday
for no reason 
other than to sit here and smile
the quiet of the house
looking in both of their rooms
Savannah in her bed 
Robert in his 
and my sweet hard working hubby in ours
sitting here and contemplating my day
I wondered outside and took a few pics
the sun coming up
the flowers in total bloom
the fruit cocktail tree in bloom
and excited for the 
seeing Lauren Alena with a favorite friend
sweet Kelly - we are going to eat Strawberries
and listen to our favorite GA peach
Then off to the grand opening of my hubby's 
new bar
that sounds funny
he doesn't even drink
but their trendy little bars are happening
and that's good
God is good
Hope your weekend is too.
