Hello Friends and Happy Friday Eve!
Why do we use the phrase, “smile, say cheese” when taking pictures…”CHEESE” really, isn’t there another word in the English language that makes you wanna smile?
#1 son is my photographer and all he does is point and shoot, he never tells me to say “cheese” or “smile or even “hold in your stomach” (which is obvious in these pics), so this morning I decided not to smile and this is what we got.
How does your photographer get you to smile?
Look at these legs – they need some sun badly!
I am so thankful for yet another beautiful day which makes it hard not to smile!
Have a fantastical afternoon – Smooches!
Hello Friends and Happy Hump Day Wednesday
Today would have been my sister’s 50th birthday and as kids I would call her “Glori” , so what could have been a gloomy day turned out to be a Glori-ous one, my Angel still shines brightly – Rest In Heaven Glori!
It took a little longer to get dressed this morning because I’m still not wearing heels and the weather forecast called for temps in the 80’s . As much as I wanted to break out the summer gear I held back. Decided on this thrifted polka dot skirt from GW Boutique, red sleeveless top from Ross or TJ Maxx/Marshalls and Red Stripped Wedge shoes from Avon.

Enjoy the rest of your day – Smooches!
On Saturday I purchased three seasoning packs from Sugar Spice and Everything Nice: Buffalo Bleu, Cracked Crab and Habanero & Green Chile. On the back of each label is a recipe for making a Dip but I decided to use the Buffalo Bleu as a seasoning for a crockpot meal.
Frozen chicken thighs
Package Buffalo Bleu seasoning
1 cup water
Mandarin Oranges (optional)
Spray Crockpot with cooking spray or use a Slow Cooker liner for easy clean up
Mixed seasoning with 1 cup water – could have used less but didn’t want dry chicken
Place frozen chicken thighs in crockpot, cover with seasoning mix, cook on low
Returned home to a kitchen smelling wonderful!
Cooked rice according to instructions, warmed oranges in microwave for a few seconds
Chicken and rice was served with a small salad and was delicious. The seasoning did not make the chicken overly spicy nor salty as I expected, I used drippings over rice. My men and I thoroughly enjoyed this dish and am looking forward to using the Habanero & Chile seasoning as a dip.
Paired extremely well with a glass (or two) of Liberty Creek Sweet Red Wine !
Hello Friends and Happy Tuesday!
It has finally happened, Winter is officially over and based upon the temps for the next few days so is Spring! If you live in the MidAtlantic area you know that we went from the cold-in-the-low 50’s on Saturday to the hot-in-the-mid 80’s today, all I can say is “bring it on”! I love the warmer temps, not intense heat but warm enough to wear only one layer of clothing and a wrap dress is perfect. If you follow me on Instagram you know that I twisted my knee doing Zumba and haven’t been able to wear heels, needless to say, I’m not happy. I did pose in them this morning but had to go straight to the flats to lessen the pain.
What’s the weather like in your neck of the woods?
