Avocado Tacos

I absolutely love avocados! Avocado Tacos happens to be one of the best ways to use avocado in an incredibly delicious way. Don't just take my word for it!  Make it & see! There's a printable recipe card at the bottom of the post.

Pajama Party!


Remember how fun sleepovers and hanging out in your pajamas were as a kid?  Well, I see no reason to discontinue the fun which is why I threw a pajama party for my friends and I!  It wasn't a sleepover; just a party in which the dress code was pajamas :)

We had the basic idea, the next step was to figure out all of the details.  My husband and I created a Google Drive document to  place the ideas for food, activities, invitation wording and guest list.  Whenever we had a new idea, either of us could go on and make changes to the document.  Next, I created the invite and mailed them out.

It's in the shape of pajamas of course!

Thanksgiving Leftovers Shepherd's Pie


This blog is long overdue with Thanksgiving being nearly two months ago, but better late then never, right?   Baking a Thanksgiving Turkey is one of my absolutely favorite things to do because I have many wonderful recipes for the leftovers!  This one is sort of a Thanksgiving tradition for my dad to make and he passed down his secret ingredient to me.  I like you guys so much, that I'll share that ingredient ;) There's a printable recipe card at the bottom of the post.

Crafting to Help My Blind Dog

This is my dog Buffy:


I have had Buffy since I was 12 years old.  I lived overseas for most of my life, moving from base to base every few years, so my family decided not to get a pet because it would be hard on the animal to move and go through quarantines.  When we moved to Texas, my brother and I begged to get a dog, so once we were settled into an apartment, we set out for the Humane Society.  We found 5 month old Buffy shaking in the back of her kennel and she became a part of our family shortly after that.

Colorful Creole Sausage with Beans and Rice


I found this delicious recipe for Creole Sausage with Red Beans and Rice from Pearls, Handcuffs and Happy Hour and made it to the tee.  Next time, I was ready to make my changes!  There are only a couple because the original recipe was amazing, but I had to make it more colorful and tone down the Rotel kick (just a bit)! There's a printable recipe card at the bottom of the post.

2013 Resolutions!

Happy New Years!  Good luck in your resolutions!

I know what you're thinking; resolutions are dumb and never work.  Well, with that attitude, of course they don't work!  2013 is a new year and a new chance to start fresh with new resolutions.  If we stop trying to better ourselves, then what happens?  I refuse to give up!
