Annual Christmas Pictures

In an effort to save money, I've started taking our annual Christmas picture and try to photoshop it.  So far it has worked out good and the pictures come out really good.

The top one is my fav but the bottom one looks like it would be good to send as Christmas cards.  

Merry Christmas!!

I'll post more pictures of Christmas destinations soon. We've had a busy couple of days.

Thanksgiving Memories

This is me first thing this morning.  Real party pooper.  Maybe it was because I got up so early but I wasn't ready to shine yet.  

Then the day brightened when I saw these two!


Special Moments.

Is it just me or did they add an extra gaming strategy with the fire and ice in Sorry?  I don't remember that from when I used to play when I was younger.

She is much braver than her momma. I could never hold a turtle like that. 

Check out that turkey.  It was so moist.  I used the brown paper bag method.  I had it drowning in chicken broth, Rosemary, Thyme and butter.  Perfect!

I found this and thought it was perfect for the day.

Hope your day was special.

Ill leave you with these two silly kids.  :-)

They wanted to talk to Santa yesterday at the mall.

Crockpot Sunday

Crockpot meals are the best!

I pulled out the recipe book today to come up with something tasty.  I ended up making Crockpot Chicken with Black Beans and cream cheese.  So good!  I'd definitely recommend but I'd also recommend using low fat cream cheese. It tasted really rich.  Here is a pic.

Ingredients: 1 can of black beans
                   1 can of corn
                   1 jar of salsa
                   4-5 frozen chicken breasts
                   1 bar of cream cheese

Chicken was cooked through thoroughly.

Would definitely make again.

Singles Day

So today I am linking up with Kelly Stamps at Kelly's Korner Blog to meet up with other single people across the United States.  

Let me start by saying I am completely happy being single but I would eventually like to meet a guy who has my same interests, goals, faith and who I can enjoy life with. 

I am a 40 year old single mother of two children living in sunny, Central Florida.  I did recently get divorced and thought the best years were behind me, I was heartbroken.  But I am realizing the best years are yet to come and I am so ready to move on to the next chapter of my life with my kids and hopefully it will include a man for me. 

I am currently employed at a High School and I love my job! I've worked in the education environment the majority of my career.  Both in Higher Education and Secondary.  

My kids are my world.  

I love to spend time with my family and friends too.

I like to be silly.

I love including my kids in my life.  They bring me the most joy and I couldn't have gotten through the roughest years of my life without my sidekicks. 

I'm not afraid to say I'm not perfect and have my downfalls but that is what makes a relationship balanced by not being perfect but having flaws that are only fixed with time and prayer.  Two imperfect people joining together and realizing that love can see past faults and imperfections.  I am a romantic at heart.  I am a movie buff.  My favorites are usually love stories and comedies.  Anything with Jennifer Aniston, Patrick Dempsey or Rachel Mcadams is a sure hit with me.  I love bonfires, walks on the beach, traveling, reading, visiting state or local theme parks, pretty much anything that can be done outside or together with a friend.  I'm also a girl that likes to take care of myself with hair appointments and trips to the spa.  

My plans for the future are to encourage my kids and their schooling.  I want them to continue with sports, pursue their education, get a college degree, buy a house next to their mother and I can come over and visit anytime I want.  Cook them dinner, do laundry whatever needs to be done.  I love my kiddos!

As for me.....

I'd love to meet my soulmate from this matchup link but if not, I know greater things are still to come.
I'd love to talk with other people in my same stage of life.  Please feel free to email me at  I'd love to talk with ya!
