lettuce . . and other random things.

oh how i love taco salads.
they are so easy and you end up eating
so many different good things.
my mom always added rice and beans to the
meat too and i am carrying on that tradition. . much
to my hubby's chagrin.

making "cards" with my niece today
which was hilarious due to her new people
that she makes which are. .adorable. . with these
large triangular dresses that almost always
have big hollow dots on them.
this one has a sticker head. . .and is
obviously holding a lovely bouquet of flowers
in one hand. . . obviously.

"it's the thought that counts "

in this adorable bag with the adorable
red and white string. . are muffins. . for my brother
. . which are fall aparty due to the fact that i
bent the recipe so much that they were
not really even muffins any more but some sort of
strange . . . grits?
.. . .. . . but he got the best ones that were sort of holding
together. .
. . and thankfully you can still have fun putting even the most
horrible failed experiment in a cute bag for someone
you know will appreciate something homemade
even if they can't identify exactly what they're eating.

we had a little snow last night.

White Christmas lights are the bomb. . the bees knees.
and the fo shizzel. . . foshizzel. . where's my little
bro when i need him.
anyway. . . my niece asked me today. . Ra Ra . . why do you
have so many Christmas lights in your
house in the winter?

.. and i told her it was because they made our house feel
like a home. . AND . .that they were not just for winter.

although i do admit our dining room still has
the lingerings of Christmas.

I can't imagine life without them.

Did you try to make the muffins again yet? Hope they come out better this time!
And I have always loved that you use white lights around your house!
