Finding Myself, While Cooking Like Mom

Ready to rock n roll

Ready to rock n roll

Preparing myself for the Valentine weekend with Nick and then one more week of work before I take a week off to finally do some proper job searching because I really have to find another job….ASAP!

Along with that I will also get my blog transferred over to a self-hosted site, so I’m excited about finally getting that done and pray I can do it without too much trouble. Continue reading

A Few Kitchen Fails and Bacon Fat Gingersnaps!

After two failed recipe attempts over the past couple of weeks, I don’t know what happened, they started off as good ideas but they fell a little short of what I was aiming for.

My Heart Is Full

I’ve been sitting here trying to figure out what to post for over half the day and now the bf is on the way and I need to put something up, because I promised myself I would post something once a week or die trying and right now that’s what it feels like.

I tried to write about Restaurant week here in KC but I had a really bad experience this time around and couldn’t find anything good to say.

Then I glanced over and I saw the photo of my middle son and I knew all I had to say.

I haven’t seen my son in over five years because of issues he had to finally get through but during my weekend off he contacted me and I finally saw my son last Sunday night.

He has grown and his voice has gotten deeper but I still see my little boy in that smile.

It is that moment in time that I praise God for, that my son came home and my heart is full.

Until next time, Peace, Love and all that Jazz!!

Lesson learned back up everything and get a backup computer to have on hand. Continue reading
