Another Give a Way

Congrats to the winners!!
Thanks to everyone that came by to say Hi. It was so much fun!
And so the fun doesn't end!

Make sure you stop by A Give A Way A Day on Sunday Dec 7th.

I have something else to give away over there!
There are give a ways each and every day there.
But you might have guessed that from the name, right?


yes I am blessed. And others are too, wether they know it or not. I know that because today I witnessed a terrible car accident. I was on the interstate two cars behind a young girl in a black sports car. I notice she was drifting to the left a bit but thought she just wasn’t paying attention. She did this for about ½ mile. I was trying to stay out of her way so I slowed down a bit. Just to be behind her if she over corrected and came over into my lane. But that wasn’t what happened. In the blink of an eye she veered over to the left again but this time she hit a guard rail and flipped her car over and down into a concrete drainage area. In a second she was upside down with her car smoking. Frightened and worried about this young girl I didn’t stop to think I just pulled my car over and jumped out. Running along side the interstate and jumping down into this drain fear struck me. What would I find when I got to the car? Expecting to see the worst. Another lady who had also seen the accident was there beside me and then a third person came to help. As we were trying to pull the door open on this car that was upside down I hear her crying, scared and frightened. This young girl who was wearing her seatbelt was safe in her car hanging there. We removed her from her car fearing it was about to catch on fire because it was smoking. There was this 16 yr old girl scared to death with only a cut on her finger and a bruise on her hip. She called her father using my cell phone and just began to sob uncontrollably. I spoke to her father explaining that she seemed ok but that they were taking her to the hospital just to make sure. She was truly blessed. The police and paramedics said the expected to find someone who was dead or badly injured at the least. I saw a miracle today as God watched over her. And as more than 50 people stopped to help. I later received a phone call from her mother thanking me and telling me that she was fine at home and resting and how thankful she was that so many people were there to help her baby. Today reminded me not to take one second for granted. you never know. So now I’m off to hold my babies and tell them how very much they are loved.

Boo Boo Cozies

Are you wondering what a boo boo cozie is? Well not any more ..... These are my boo boo cozies, as my girls call them. "What do you do with these" you ask.
  1. Heat in the microwave 1-3 min. (Check after 1 min, all microwaves are different)
  2. Place on your neck, back, legs, feet or any other place that aches.
  3. Get one for the freezer for boo boos that require a cold pack. (do not use in a cooler as a cold pack, yes I did have to add that because it has been asked:)
  4. Heat it and put it under your sheets to keep your feet warm on those cool nights.
  5. Use for those lower back pains that visit once a month.
    The list goes on and on and on.......

Pepermint Scented. Available in soft Lime or Chocolate Fleece Personalized just for you!
It measures 19"x 5".
I'll be adding these to my Etsy Shop soon.
But until then if you want one just drop me a line at and put
boo boo order in the subject line. They are $10.00 and shipping is $6.50.

Its Snowing Here!!! not sticking but snowing!

December 1st... the countdown to Christmas begins! As the days start to turn colder my calendar starts to fill quickly. My December, like many of your, becomes a guessing game of how do we fit one more thing into our schedule. We want to spend time with everyone and hate to say no to any party or celebration. (And we usually don’t say no) Christmas only comes once a year and we enjoy celebrating with our family and friends.

We have one event that has been scheduled for sometime now. And I’m anxiously looking forward to the celebration. It’s a progressive dinner with neighborhood friends. For those of you who don’t know what a progressive dinner is, it where a group of friends or families travel from home to home to admire the homeowners decorations and partake in a few delicious goodies. Our first stop will for appetizers and drinks. Then after about an hour or two we move on to the next home for soup and salad, then main dish and last but not least desserts. Spending a few hours at each home with friends will be a great treat this holiday season. My house will be the soup and salad stop. I’m looking for a spectacular soup that will WOW everyone. So if anyone has any recipes I would love to here about them. The salad will be a spring mix topped with sliced strawberry and toasted sesame seeds. All topped off by a sweet and tangy dressing with poppy seeds. We were introduced to this fantastic salad by my husbands Aunt Wendy from NC. Thanks Wendy, we loved it so much we have it all the time now!

I’m still taking orders for Christmas gifts on my Etsy shop. If there’s something you would like to order do so soon. And still get them in time for Christmas morning! Click the link on the top left sidebar to see my shop.

Decorations, I’ve been working on a few more decorations. My mantel and my chandelier in my dinning room. Here are a few of my favorite Santa ornament and other decorations that I love. Enjoy the pictures.
