"You're My Everything"

We celebrated  
SIX years
 as a married couple this past weekend.

 Aw... Love :-)

 I always think we looked "so hot right now" in the picture above.

 That is more like it... We agreed on a certain spin move before.. which we both messed up on during the real thing. Oh brother...

And here we are the other night, celebrating our love
Don't judge... camera pictures...FUZZY!

It took me a long time to decide how to celebrate our lives together and show my appreciation. I have given the Mister all kinds of gifts but rarely feel like it really shows how I feel. 
Then one day it hit me....

Six Pies for Six Years 

the Mister basically passed out on the kitchen floor when he saw this. 

Chocolate coconut cream-
This is was probably the easiest. 
Nilla wafer crust
Instant chocolate pudding (from a box)
Coconut whipped cream via

 Oreo crust with homemade sweet cream ice cream 
3c. heavy whipping cream
1c. whole milk
Mix in bowl until dissolved. 
Pour into ice cream maker and process according to your machine

the Mister loves pecans and pumpkin
I got this recipe out of the red plaid cook book, I think it's called Better Homes?

HAH!! Yeah right! I'm not giving this recipe up! This is my one secret recipe I don't share.

YUM!!! This one came from the red plaid cook book too. 

Wondering how we will eat them before they go bad? 
Pies freeze like a dream :-) 
He plans to defrost them one at a time. 
I just had a slice of the chocolate coconut cream and OOOoooh. 
Heaven in a slice. 

How have you celebrated your anniversaries?

"Let me not to the marriage of true minds
Admit impediments. Love is not love
Which alters when it alteration finds,
Or bends with the remover to remove:
O no! it is an ever-fixed mark
That looks on tempests and is never shaken;
It is the star to every wandering bark,
Whose worth's unknown, although his height be taken.
Love's not Time's fool, though rosy lips and cheeks
Within his bending sickle's compass come:
Love alters not with his brief hours and weeks,
But bears it out even to the edge of doom.
   If this be error and upon me proved,
   I never writ, nor no man ever loved."

TMI Tuesday #36-"Picky Eater"

TMI Tuesday: "Things kids say"-edition

It is a submit, ya'll!!
Love a good submit :) 

Friend my good friend, Sarah 

Take it away!!


So I have a TMI for ya. 
I made the kids egg salad sandwiches for lunch because Journey loves them. Well Jaxon isn't such a big fan but that's what I made so that's what you eat. We all sat down at the table to eat and like most meals the protest began. Journey like always just ate and was a good girl but Jaxon needed some convincing. I gave him the normal this is good for you and will make you big and strong. He continued to protest so I informed him that because sissy is eating well she will be big and strong and you won't. Well this got him to take a few bites and he soon learned he liked it. After eating a little more he looks at me flexes he arm muscles and says 
"Mommy, this is making my penis bigger!"
..... umm yeah.... 
I had to get up and walk away. The things kids say. 
Thanks for the TMI Jaxon!

 OH! MY! GOSH! I think every mom of sons can agree... this has happened to all of us!

Thanks again, Sarah!!

Don't forget my friends, I am always accepting TMI stories
Email, text, message on facebook, tell me in person, anything! 
Just let me know if you want to remain anonymous or to change names etc.

TMI Tuesday #35- I used to be brave sometimes

After I graduated from high school, I had some months before I went off to college

I needed a project 

So my mom let me paint and redecorate 

2 bathrooms and 2 bedrooms 

Amazing right? 

That was 7 years ago and she still has a few things left over. 
This one bathroom cracks me up because I didn't even stencil this or use a pencil first
I just did it. 
I wouldn't be able to do that anymore! 

Oh the brave personality of an 18 year old!! 
Here is a picture for you to enjoy.
Please laugh, I always do!!!

Spooky Halloween Dragon

So... this is what my house looks like this year. 
My neighbor, Besty and me, are having quite the spooky time getting our Halloween on. 


That is all.
