Vermont Fall Foliage and Wonderful Wednesday Party

Welcome to Wonderful Wednesday Blog Hop!

Welcome Friends. I am so glad you stopped by. I love this time of year with all of the fall decorating ideas being posted. We are actually have fall weather here in central Florida - low in the mid 50's. I am so excited. 

Fall means cooler weather, mums, pumpkins and of course beautiful trees. Since we didn't get to Vermont for fall foliage because of Ian, my son sent some fall foliage pictures and I thought I would share them with you so you too can enjoy fall foliage in Vermont.

Pupcakes for a Special Birthday

Pupcakes for a Special Birthday

Our boy Louie had a birthday and of course we had to celebrate.  He is seven and acts like he is three. Sometimes I think he thinks he is a Jack Russel. He jumps up and down like crazy. Here he is with his momma. Louie is on the left and Caleigh is on the right. She has a darker face than he does, but they look so similar.

Check out the special pupcakes I made for them!

Fall Centerpiece Using Fruit Cocktail Cans

Fall Centerpiece Using Fruit Cocktail Cans

As I watch others post their fall projects and talk about cooler weather, it is hard to think about fall when the weather is still so warm here in southern Florida. We may cool off to the upper eighties tomorrow. lol!
This post is about creating the vases for this "fall" centerpiece.

Wonderful Wednesday Blog Hop

Welcome to Wonderful Wednesday Blog Hop!

Here we are in another new week. I hope you are all doing well. We are good, still trying to stay home as much as possible. I am still working on some projects that I wasn't able to get to. I am excited about that. I am making room in the garage. One of these days, I hope it will be all cleaned up. 
Are you working on any projects, working in the garden or thinking of back to school issues. My son has been an OR nurse and this year took a job as a school nurse which is only 10 minutes from their house, instead of driving 50 minutes to the hospital. What is the likelihood that the schools would be in a turmoil as he prepares for a new job? Life is full of twists and turns.

Happiness Is Homemade

Welcome to Happiness Is Homemade!

What a day it has been. I told you that we are getting our house ready to sell. It has been rather stressful but it is coming along. Today I was putting down mulch (50 bags, so far) and my husband yells for my. Here when he pulled out the washing machine to clean behind it, something happened so when I put in a load of rags, the water went all over the floor and into the garage. What a mess! Needless to say, cleaning that up was not on our list of projects for the day. We got it cleaned up and by then I was more exhausted than I thought possible. I was even too tired to eat.  At least the garage floor is clean!

Now a word from our monthly hostess:
March is National Crafting Month in the US, so I have some crafty features from last week's party including a crafty home decor idea and recipe idea. Plus, I had to include the post about the California Super Bloom since I live a few miles south of one of the most popular viewing sites. It's a nightmare, don't come! Seriously, the poor town has become overrun with traffic and trash and people are trampling the flowers and parking on the freeway letting their kids play. But the hills are breathtaking! ~Audrey from That Recipe

Happiness Is Homemade

Welcome to Happiness Is Homemade!

Can you believe that this is the last Saturday in February? Time is flying and soon it will be March. Hopefully it will mean warmer weather.  I know some are having some strong winds and ice. Hope you are safe and keeping warm.

With Mardi Gras fast approaching, Audrey has some info about that holiday. Check out her comments below:

Those of you outside of the Gulf Coast might not be familiar with Mardi Gras. The literal translation is Fat Tuesday, the Day before Ash Wednesday when you eat all of the fatty sweet foods in your home before Lent begins. But, in New Orleans and the surrounding areas the celebration has become a weeks long secular party filled with parades and music and beads that can start as early as January 6th. I hope the features this week inspire you to celebrate the spirit of Mardi Gras at home with recipes, crafts and tablescapes. And since we are learning about the world, I added one wordly DIY project. Stop by the featured posts and say hi from the Happiness is Homemade Krewe (that's how they spell crew in NOLA ;) ) Laissez les bons temps rouler! ~Audrey from Munofore.

Happiness Is Homemade

Welcome to Happiness Is Homemade!

I am so excited that you have stopped by our party. I hope your weekend has been going well. Mine is OK. Car issues are never a joy. We drove up to our other house on Thursday and the trip was rather uneventful until we were about an hour out. We could tell the car was not doing well. At first we thought we had gotten some bad gas but the closer we came, other issues started to happen. Long story short, we did arrive safely but now need our transmission fixed.  That, we were not expecting and we have to leave it for a week. We keep a second car here that is old, so we are hoping it makes it home. 

Now a few words from your HIH host for February:

Welcome to the party! I hope everyone survived the cold last week. It is just hitting us here in Southern California after 4 days of rain. It is nice to see the sun, but it is so cold my 10 year old actually put on a sweatshirt without arguing! Our features from the amazing posts shared at last week's party are "I'll take Potpourri for 1000, Alex", a little of this and a little of that. I hope you take a moment to visit the featured blogs and our hosts too. ~Audrey from Munofore

Eggless Cookie Dough
One Little Project
Hello cookie dough!  I’ve gotta say, my favourite thing about making chocolate chip cookies is sneaking a few bites of the raw cookie dough. I know, I know.  You aren’t supposed to eat raw cookie dough, but I just can’t help myself!  Which is why this safe-to-eat, eggless cookie dough recipe is AMAZING!

Confessions of the Perfect Mom
I am done. D. O. N. E. Now don’t go judging me, I am a good mom. I promise I am. My girls are happy, healthy, well adjusted, and polite girls. They are well behaved, and patient. Basically, they rock and since they rock, then I must have done something right. Going to pat myself on the back and give credit where it is due there. But that said, I am done doing the following things. Not only am I going to be done doing them, I am not going to feel bad any more about not doing them.

Buffalo Chicken Stuffed Peppers
Almost Supermom
Continuing with the whole red pepper theme, I whipped up these the other day when I was really craving some buffalo chicken dip. While part of me just wanted to sit down with an entire bowl of dip and a bag of chips, my getting too tight jeans vehemently begged me to eat some veggies. So I compromised and put my yummy buffalo chicken dip inside of a veggie and added some rice (quinoa would have been better, but we were all out, gah!).

Stuffed Buns
Jenn's Random Scraps

I made these stuffed buns for the kids' lunches again, and it's time that I share this simple and oh-so yummy snack / lunch box treat with you.  The first time I made them I used leftover chicken and broccoli in the filling.

DIY Tween BoyToss Pillow Covers
Re-do It Yourself Inspirations

Redoing a growing boy's bedroom has been challenging and fun at the same time. It's certainly allowing me to be resourceful while being thrifty-crafty!

I bought a cheap toss pillow at Target that was perfect for the American Boy theme.

45 Clever Kitchen Gadgets
One Little Project

There are clever kitchen gadgets for just about every kitchen task!  I had no idea some of these even existed!?  From simple tasks to things you never would have thought of, I guarantee you will find something on this list you’ve never seen before.  I have at least 10 of these in my kitchen right now with plenty more on my wishlist.

It was an itsy bitsy teeny weeny yellow polka-dot bikini
A girl and her chicken named Betty

I'm reviewing some water decals I was sent by Born Pretty today! I'd actually never used water decals before, they were way easier to use than I thought they'd be, I thought you had to press them onto your nails like a tattoo, haha.

I started with a base of China Glaze Sunset Sail and a thin coat of China Glaze Luxe & Lush, I'm really loving all the iridescent glitters at the moment. After applying the decals I finished it off with topcoat.

Carnitas Tacos – Slow Cooked & Delicious
the recipe wench
Fall-apart-tender chunks of pork, sprinkled with cheese, drizzled with salsa and wrapped up in a nice corn tortilla.  Add a couple of friends and a few beers (or margaritas!) and you’ve got yourself a fiesta!

Hot Chocolate Barbecue Sauce
Living Chic on the Cheap
Hot Chocolate Barbecue Sauce! I know this sounds a little odd, but please try to keep an open mind. Yes, you read it correctly. This barbecue sauce contains chocolate. I was looking through my bookshelves and came across four boxes of recipe cards and I was instantly drawn to this recipe.

Thrift Store Table Makeover under $3 (*Including the table)

I ended up with this project when we were in real need for a large table.My husband wanted to get rid of the small glass table we already had and wanted a big table to accommodate his external monitor and also the laptop.We may move anytime so we don't like to splurge much on furniture and so we always hunt thrift store when there is a need.

Godly Womanhood

I started this year with these words ringing in my spirit: Know your God.

I talked at length about how 2015 is the year to get impressed with God and started a blog series from that revelation. Alex and I began writing the Know Your God book which we planned to publish this year. I even started the Instagram hashtag #knowyourgod2015.

All She Cooks
Caution:  The following blog post and recipe might cause you to want to stop what you’re doing and go to the store because this death by chocolate experience is one you don’t want to miss.  If you’re looking for a Chocolate Dessert that is decadent, with layers upon layers of chocolate… including out of this world TWIX® chocolate brownies… well, then you’ve come to the right place.

Lord, Light My Path
Finding Our Feet

By this time in the week, I normally have a post out, but I’ve been evaluating my life and just didn’t feel ready to post any of the posts I already have waiting for me to click ‘publish’. This past weekend my husband and I attended a FamilyLife Weekend to Remember marriage event and had a wonderful time. It helped us refocus on Christ and His design for our marriage and it was timely and encouraging.

Welcome Spring at the Door: A Super Easy, Super Beautiful Overflowing Umbrella Display
The Art of "Why Not?"

In many parts of the country spring has been around for a while, and my home state of Florida is even moving into summer already. Here in Maryland, though, spring took its own sweet time arriving. But it has certainly burst onto the scene in all it’s glory!

Chicken Empanadas
A Sprinkle of This and That

Like St. Patrick's Day, when everyone celebrates whether they are Irish or not...
everyone likes a good fiesta!  Check out these easy Cinco de Mayo inspired empanadas!

Grandma Shirley’s Pancake/Waffle Recipe
A Mother's Shadow

My Grandma Shirley was FAMOUS for this bat­ter she made into pan­cakes and waf­fles. My fam­ily has become known for this also. They are A.M.A.Z.I.N.G. a tad bit of work, but well worth it!

Margarita Strawberries
t's not that I spend a lot of time thinking about cocktails, but I was thinking strongly about a strawberry margarita the other day having just returned from a successful bit of fresh produce shopping that yielded some amazingly good tasting strawberries. I thought just how wonderful a strawberry margarita would taste, and then began to think about what a great combination of ingredients strawberries, limes, and orange liqueur make. Then I thought how delicious this would be in edible form and set to work making the edible strawberry margarita.

Vegetable Smoothie Recipes: 10 Kale Smoothie Recipes for Kids Who Hate Veggies!

And if you add a shot of NingXia Red to any of these recipes they’ll have the goodness of a whole truck load full of greens giving your kids the vitamins and minerals they need to grow and stay healthy!

New Ruffle Flower Rag Quilt in Turquoise and PInk in Multiple Sizes PLUS Pillow Shams
A Vision to Remember

I had a customer request a modification to one of my most popular quilt designs. She wanted a full size ruffle flower rag quilt with 2 pillow shams. I was beyond excited to make this set for her. It has been a quilt that I have been wanting to make into a larger version, but without having a customer wanting it, it never got done.

A Tale of 3 Curios, Part 3
Some time ago ( last year), I mentioned that my neighbor's sons were kind enough to give me 3 Curios from my neighbor Elly's house, which we are watching because she needed to be placed in a Nursing Home due to Alzheimer's.
