We're Going To The Circus

Tonight we are going to the circus! The Ringling Brother's and Barnum&Bailey are in town and I am so excited.. it's my first circus as well as D and M's first circus.. and I am waiting to see my boy's eyes widen and face light up in awe and here him say 'wow' so they better not disappoint. While I wish it would transport me to the days of Water for Elephants (not the movie) but it's the middle of a still very cold winter and we'll be inside a stadium.. :( Ignore my negativity.. lets go to the circus!   What A Novel Idea Mmim     Lovable Baby Boutique My Bookmark   Not Betty Cookies   Little Hin Lee   The Rekindled Page     Jolie Marche Holly Clifton Brown   Tea Teas Treats   Gemini Studio   Laughing Taffy Coaster   Meu Adoravel Iglu     Ed Miller Design The Doll City Rocker   Mono Circus Get my post directly in you inbox with  Bloglovin I am now also offeri

Soup for the Sick

Last weekend I had a sick husband on my hands... a sick husband who was living on soups. Instead of making a huge pot of one kind of soup and living on it (which M would hate) I took this as an opportunity to make soups.. hearty enough to fill me sick man's stomach and mine too.. The first is my favorite and one of my go to soups.. it is Sunny Anderson's Roasted Tomato Soup . This soup is rich, hearty and absolutely delicious. I add a green pepper to for an extra kick. picture source My second soup of the weekend was a Southern Chicken Corn Chowder . First time making this one and it was another winner.. i omitted the bacon bits and M and I are not a fan of celery.. but next I think I'd add a second jalapeno or a dash a paprika. We like a kick :) picture source Soup number three is another favorite in our house.. Black Bean Tortilla Soup . I add a small can of corn and a spoon full of salsa to the mix. Sometimes even half a chicken breast depending on how

Candles and Hearts

Some pictures from our birthday/valentines celebration.. and a little storm called Nemo (which stopped any and all weekend birthday celebrations : ( plus D was sick.. double sad face) my first attempt at cake pops.. I have made them before.. but never frosted, decorated and put them on sticks before.. and I got shoes for my birthday :) For Valentine's Day a group of us mom (who have mainly only interacted online in a local parenting group) decided it would be fun to have our kids mail each other Valentine's.. D and I got together to make this heart crown and we received and still are receiving so much cute mail. Then came Valentine's Day and M went down with the flu.. and romance died so I baked shortbread. and D crafted some heart melting cuteness at school..  I had saved some of the cake pops I had made the week before, the less than round and perfect ones and upcycled them. Whipped some whipped cream with peanut b
