Little morning fun with Quincy...

As soon as I woke up I knew I had to tease him. He sleeps at the end of my bed where all the down fluff is like a a big fluff king. A very short video...and I cut off the part where I dropped the camera and had to give him big fat kisses on his belly! :)

Hope you had a wonderful weekend!

Homemade Pop Tarts

Everyone is making homemade pop tarts! So, since I love being a follower...I joined in and made some fabulous chocolate pop tarts. Truth be told I was really craving something sweet one morning and since I didn't have my good 'ol standby of Pillsbury's Orange Danish Rolls, I decided to search the internet for something that would satisfy my sugar craving. There were so many recipes to try out there on the internet but I ended up going with King Arthur's recipe here.

My favorite part...

Ready for the sun tan bed...

I did end up washing the second batch with some egg-white and sprinkling a little sugar on top before baking. They were SO yummy and my tummy was satisfied.

Happy Mother's Day Mom!

First of all, I'm alive! Just barely. I've been sick for two weeks and seriously, how much nose "stuff" can one have in one's body? Blech! I'm feeling a little more human though.

I have so much catching up to do including two trips, one with my sweetie and one with my mom and brother. Oh and a few garden updates as well!

But this post is for mom today. Mom, you are the best mother any girl could ever ask for. Thank you for being encouraging, for being strong for me and teaching me to be strong, to have a good heart, for giving me your beautiful genes, for teaching me how it's important to be young and positive on the inside and most of all...for being my best friend. I love you mom. I even like sharing your colds. ;) Lol!

She used to always sing this song to us kids. I'll never forget.
