I hope you had a wonderful Christmas! Do you ever feel like we do so much to get ready for the BIG day and then it’s over. I don’t want it to be over. We still have our decorations up. The New Year is such a time for changes, so I think the twinkling lights add something magical to that.
So, now that Christmas is over, what do you do with your ham? Oh, you didn’t have ham?
How was your Thanksgiving? I did really good this year and didn’t over stuff myself LOL. We had lots of yummy “from scratch” food and I can’t wait to share those recipes with you one day. For now, lets talk about today. Today is the day that you can sit in the comfort of your home, get on your laptop and get some great deals.
As I’ve gotten older, I realize, the less “stuff” I need. I’ve noticed I’m more methodical as I make buying decisions now, too. Maybe I’m becoming more wiser in my older age LOL.
When my kids were little, I definitely was all about hitting the Black Friday deals. My sister and I would team up and go to different stores, just so we could get the kids the toys that they wanted. Were we crazy or what?
November seems to be the month where we can relax. October we are all busy with pumpkins and festivals and the day after Thanksgiving, well, starts the Christmas festivities. I love November! I still keep my Fall decor up through Thanksgiving and just live the month with gratitude!
This month we honored a very special lady. My husband’s grandmother turned 95 and we thru a big bash to celebrate her special day!
With Thanksgiving less than two weeks away, it’s time to start planning your side dishes.
Do you have a dish that reminds you of back when you were little? Mine is my maw maw’s Iron skillet Cornbread. In West Virginia, cornbread pretty much goes with anything lol, so we had it at least once or twice a week when I was a kid.
After maw maw passed away, my mom was fortunate to get her iron skillet and her recipe, so now it can be passed down to more generations. Continue reading →

If you are following me on Facebook or Instagram, you know that we are more than halfway finished with our new home. It’s been such a crazy and amazing journey!
Let me start from the beginning.
My husband and I purchased 10 acres back in 2014 and had hopes to build one day and have no mortgage. Why did we need to move though? We had a beautiful home on 1 ½ acres in a neighborhood that we really loved.
We lived about 30 minutes from town and our kids were getting to the age where they were driving and honestly, we were just doing more in town than we did when they were little. My life basically consisted of home-school and 4-H and I was fine with that.
