Recipes I {simply} must try...and share


2-8 oz pkgs. cream cheese, softened
1/2 c. sugar
2 eggs
2 tbsp. sour cream
1 tsp. vanilla
1/2 c. canned pumpkin
whipped cream

Preheat oven to 350* Place cupcake liners in a muffin pan. Beat the cream cheese until creamy. Add the sugar and cream again. Add the eggs one at a time beating after each one. Add the rest of the ingredients and beat again. Place one whole oreo in the bottom of the cupcake liners and fill up the liner 3/4 full with the cheesecake batter. Push another whole oreo into the top of the batter. Bake for 20-22 minutes. Cool in pan for 15-20 min before removing and placing on a wire rack to finish cooling. Keep refrigerated. Top with whipped cream and oreo sprinkles before serving. Makes 24.

{Cucumber stuffed with Spicy Crab}

When I saw this it screamed amazing! I really want to give this a try.

{Mozzarella, Tomato and Avocado}

The word avocado immediately grabbed my attention! I think this would satisfy any appetite! Add it to a nice bowl of soup...sounds like a yummy meal to me.

{Dessert in a Jar}

That title please.
This is such a fabulous idea. I'll have another.

Since this was some time ago, I'm not sure what I was fixated on; possibly a ball or something with a squeaker inside.

Turkey in Disguise

Last week sure was a short week {2 days..whoop!} We had loads of {turkey} fun: read about turkeys, made turkey hats, ate turkey for lunch, and even made turkey's in disguise.

Above we wrote about what we were thankful for and below is a fun disguise a turkey project that I think the kids and the parents enjoyed.

My students were given a take home project and asked to disguise a turkey for Thanksgiving. Here are some of the awesome results. I was truly impressed {these parents really go all out}.

My momma heard that if you bring in a photo of your bestest dog in return they will not only hang it up--but you also get a FREE appetizer and a nice bag of treats from the Bluegrass Barkery {my favorite}. And so she I love her {and she loves me}!

location: momma's lap
feelings: smart

I thought I'd be helpful this year as I browsed Real Simple with my mom. When she stumbled upon this page I simply drew her attention to all the ways she could cut back on the Holiday gift giving {she really does over do it sometimes} I mean I don't mind, I love gifts {especially carob covered ones}

Photogr{app}y Fun

App..solutely addictive!

If you haven't been stalking all the fun photo apps! Install now {these are freebies}!

Love Shoebox! So fun and easily manageable for old photos! Just scan and share! Viola.

Of course I use Instagram like it's my job. I adore the filters, the blur effects and lately I'm pretty fond of {Early Bird} for almost all my photo effects...ahh..the squared photos are so perfectly sharable!

Labelbox is so much fun! I often find myself restating the obvious just so I can add these colorful and fun labels! Who doesn't love a nice stripe or an announcement of what is simply happening in the picture? LOL..I know I certainly do.

My latest and first purchase {$.99} Pocketbooth! Another sweet addiction! A must if you are into sharing and having fun with your photos!

After a long day I wrap up in a blankie {if momma's lap isn't available} while the evening household routine is underway and my folks are not on the internets.

Skirt {afterwork}

It's always nice to unwind after work with the girls.

Thursday was no different. {Sk!rt Afterwork} is a monthly event hosted by local restaurants for the working woman that chooses to come and unwind for a bit {5:30-7:00} with other working women...

*Usually a nice discounted price on drinks and the eats is offered {bonus}.

Needless to say, we rarely miss an event.

Thursday's event was at Portifinos and it was delish!

Nothing like good conversation, a glass of wine, and a yummy meal to make for a nice evening with the girls.

So thankful to have my girls to hang out with on any given occasion.

Man, do I love my backyard!

Look at all those leaves. I frolicked around for just a bit until the wind started to blow, then I realized I prefer to be inside {but it was good fun while it lasted...I at least like to pretend to be a dog on some days..did you see that stick I had in my mouth {convincing huh?}.

{Give Thanks}

These great pins are so fun and fitting for the upcoming holiday. I thought it would be neat to share a variety of ways to say {Thanks via Pinterest finds}.






Over the next few days, I wish you laughter, love, tasty food and new memories this Thanksgiving! I know I always look forward to my grandmother's traditional {Share Salad}. Dinner would not be the same without it.

Enjoy your holiday LTC!
