Can't think of a creative title

My brain is gone. 
this post is just a bunch of random crap.
Just sayin'

If you are here.... PLEASE click on the awesome bloggers tab above and add yourself :)

You should also go follow my other blog...
It's got some pretty YUMMO recipes on it!
Plus, I get help from Nicole and Andrea.
There are currently 4 days a week, that there are not recipes being posted.
Would you be willing to post a recipe each week over there?
Leave me a message if you would like to :)

Why does life go so freakin' fast that you don't have time to really stop and enjoy things. 
The older I get, the faster it goes.
I would LOVE to have ONE day.
To sit and do nothing. Stay in my PJs all day.
today would be a good day.... as it is snowing like crazy.
We were not supposed to have snow today.
But then again we were supposed to have a blizzard on Christmas Day.
Didn't happen.
I think the weathermen are on crack.

We have been going non stop this holiday season.
One more Christmas Celebration to go and we are done!
Well, actually not, because you see....
We have a huge arse New Years Eve Party
every. stinkin'.year.

Kobi is getting better and better every day and most of her stomach/throat probs have gone.
YEAH!  However, she still has a knot on the back of her neck.
We finally got her in for a CT scan.
It's nothing.
Well, it's something, but not a solid mass, even though it feels and looks like one.
So probably just an infected lymph node.
We will go to an ENT if it doesn't stop bothering her soon.

As I am rejoicing that Kobi's scan comes back with good news....
My friend and her 11 year old daughter were not so fortunate.
Please say some special prayers for them as the 11 year old undergoes surgery today to remove a tumor in her brain.

I hosted a wine and painting party a couple weeks ago.
We all painted Santa pictures.

If anyone has a chance to do a wine and palette party....
They are SO SO much fun!
Most things with wine are fun....

OK so now that I have totally spun you in circles with all my random crazy talk....
I best say toodles and get movin' onto my next project for the day....
Hope everyone had a great Christmas
Hope you have a Happy New Year!

Pure sadness...
That is what my blogging has become.
It seems I get around once a week. 
If that....

I totally made anew Christmas/Winter wreath this past weekend.

 I just wish I could find more  mesh....
I want to make more....
I think I have all the Christmas decorations up at the house

This weekend I will be painting a Santa to put out...
like one of these.

I am having something like a "wine and palette" party at my home on Saturday.
You eat snacks, drink wine and paint a picture.
Want to come?

This weekend we also spent time celebrating the 50th birthday of our friend Mark.
And yes, for his birthday, his wife got him an old restored classic truck....
the one in 50 signs plastered in his

And of course the weekend is not a weekend unless you go out for drinks....

The cold finally hit us here in Oklahoma...
So Sunday was perfect soup weather.

I altered Nicole's Yummy Soup Recipe just a bit...
I used 1 cup of salsa and used a can of drained corn....
I also left out the flour tortillas and crunched in some corn chips.

My leftovers were a huge hit at the office on Monday!

Speaking of Monday....
Best Monday ever!
I actually WON something!
I know right?

a limited edition lip balm collection inspired by the whimsy and wonder of Disney’s timeless tale, Alice in Wonderland.
