My mother’s side of the family is from New Orleans. I have such fond memories of visiting family there as a girl, and staying at my Aunt Lorraine’s large brownstone in the French Quarter. I’ve made it back a couple of times as an adult, and really enjoyed the Mardi Gras festivities. Since Katrina left her mark on New Orleans, most of my Louisiana family has relocated to Texas and Florida, although I still have one Aunt a few cousins who have refused to let mother nature scare them away. I’ve decided to go back to my family’s roots and plan a Mardi Gras party for my friends and family here in rural Georgia.
Valentine’s Day is just around the corner and this is such a CUTE and easy recipe to make during the fun and lovvy season! Making Gumdrops (which includes applesauce) just requires a few ingredients and your favorite people to make them. This would be great for a Classroom treat or to make a homemade Valentine’s Gift for someone that you love!
Valentine’s Day is approaching fast! This year I wanted to make a treat that is healthy, but still delicious and seasonal, and I came up with this Pomegranate Cherry Yogurt Parfait.
Valentine's Day is a special day for me because it is me and Robert's anniversary! I know, pretty cheesy, right? We actually don't celebrate outside of the house anymore because everyone else is celebrating, so we usually stay home and go on with our daily routine. Then we wait til the day or weekend after to actually where he wines and dines me :)
We seldom used the table and chairs that were in the kitchen, so I thought that space could be put to a better use with a buffet to store dishes, glasses, and misc kitchen stuff. I looked everywhere for a vintage buffet to fit the space and had the storage that I wanted....no luck. So, I asked H if he thought he could custom make me one and of course he said yes....gotta love that guy!
Who doesn’t love an easy and inexpensive craft? These simple Valentine’s Day cupcake lights are so easy to make, so sweet to display, and so easy on your wallet! With just a few dollar store supplies, you can make a set of your own and add some glow to your Valentine’s Day décor. Take a peek below and get inspired, as the season for sweethearts is almost here!
This Momma Loves
American Girl Valentines
Got a girl who loves her American Girl dolls? I know both of mine do- and most of their friends! Here are some a-doll-able Valentines that they can share with all of their friends- and their dolls!!
These Cookies & Creme Cookie Butter Balls are a perfect last minute addition to any party! Now, I don't know about you, but when I'm planning a party I tend to look for quick and easy foods that can be eaten standing up and with your fingers. That usually means a menu of bite sized tasty goodness. But just because it's small, doesn't mean it can't pack loads of flavor!
We believe many things even though we cannot see them. We believe there are nice things inside wrapped presents, even though we cannot tell for sure until we open the box. We believe we have a heart, and it is the right size although we have never actually seen our own heart. We believe there are rocks on the moon, even though we have never been to the moon.
Mid-Thirties…… They are interesting. You really start going from looking like a kid, to a full fledged adult. Whether you want to or not. The little lines around your eyes start to, not only appear but make a daily appearance. The “smile lines” (you know the lines from your nose to the corners of your mouth) are always there. And those dark circles that you use to only get when you got no sleep and had a bit to much wine, also start showing up on a normal basis. Ugh… no more simple flawless skin, that you forget to take care of.
I've been making this recipe for years. The first time I made it was for a party for our birthing class. That was for my first baby, Morgan, who is now almost 29! After we had all had our babies, we got together for a picnic/party in a park on Mother's Day. We were all first time parents. It was so fun to see each other's babies and share our birth stories. And the dessert was a hit!
Now that Valentine’s Day is right around the corner, red velvet everything is in high demand! You might even see another red velvet recipe from me next week, I’m sorry, I can’t help it. It’s a problem, I know! LOL.
Terms like "Wedded Bliss" should not exist...because we all know that marriage is never pure joy 100% of the time. Heck, you're one of the lucky ones if you're batting 500 consistently. No matter how wonderful your spouse is, it takes an incredible amount of patience to create and sustain a happy home.
All of a sudden it looked complete. And it looked like we did it on purpose, which was my end game all along. I wish I could take credit for this, but Charles gets all the props, top to bottom. I think I’ll keep him.
We already had the two Ikea bookcases, which were given to Charles for helping a friend move. The stacking kit for the washer and dryer, with tax and shipping, cost $28.42. So we came in under $30. Woop woop!
This is one of my very favorite, warm you –through-and-through soups. Hearty, comforting and completely satisfying. I think you will like it too
Did you know that Valentine’s Day is the second most popular Holiday for sending cards? Only Christmas ranks higher!
How about you? Do you send Valentine’s cards?
