New Camera!

In just two weeks, my sister will be graduating from college. I cannot tell you just how proud I am – or how amazed I am by how quickly time passes. It’s another reminder to be grateful for and take advantage of each day. Now that I’ve gotten the sappy stuff out of the way… …

Friday’s Fantabulous Food!

This is a recipe I just have to share. I’ve made it several times before and I’m making it again today! It’s a Kraft dessert called Ice Cream Shop Pie. It’s extremely easy and delightfully delicious (gotta love the cheesy alliteration)! There are only a handful of ingredients, and some are common pantry items. Ready …

For Thursday…

I have a surprise craft planned for tomorrow! I’m keeping my fingers crossed that all goes well. If it’s a success, I’ll post pictures! Until tomorrow… Update: Change of plans. The surprise craft will have to wait for another day. Sorry, folks. 😦

Baking With Meemaw

This is an oldie but a goodie. Back in July, I posted this to my tumblr and I wanted to revive it again. Living in Kingsville, we’re very fortunate to have so many different types of fruit available to us. We’ve picked everything from apples and cherries, to blackberries and wineberries. Because picking berries is …

Today’s website is 1SaleADay. Here, you will find everything …

A code to live by…

If you’ve ever watched NCIS, you know that the main character, Leroy Jethro Gibbs, has rules. We first learn about his rules in the pilot episode, Yankee White, and even now, as …

Job interview today!

Please keep me in your prayers today as I have a job interview this afternoon. After 8 months of being unemployed and applying to at least 15 jobs, I’m finally getting somewhere. I’m trying not to get my hopes up and assume that I’ll be hired. If nothing else, this will give me more practice …

Submerged

I had the privilege of being an influencer for author Dani Pettrey and her new book, Submerged. What’s an “influencer?” Well, simply put, I was to read Submerged and then tell others that they should read the book as well. I have to say, even if I hadn’t been an influencer, I would be recommending …

Banana Bread

It’s been grey and rainy here – the perfect weather for baking! We have some bananas that have seen better days, which means I get to make banana bread! I know most people make banana nut bread, but as I’m not a huge fan of nuts, I like to make my banana bread without them. …

And so it begins…

I’m not much of a blogger. Never have been. But because of recent events and life changes, I’ve decided it’s time to become a blogger, or at least blog about something that’s important to me. The house I’m currently living in was built in 1968 and was built for my family – my grandmother and …
