Hey everybody! I hope you all are safe from the nasty storms that have been causing such devastation this past week. I used to live in some of the states that have gotten hit and it’s heart breaking to see on TV. I was chatting on here with my sweet friend Vanessa (check out her blog!) and she has some great photos of the storm damage. I’m so glad she is okay! I do not miss the storms I used to hide/run from, but I really miss living in “Fly over” States…
I had a BUSY week. We celebrated my favorite son-in-law’s birthday. 💕 I made him a Jello poke hole cake. I made it for him once when he was dating DollFace and he liked it so much that I make it for him twice a year: his birthday and Christmas. I told DollFace that you find the dessert a person loves you to make and you only make it twice a year. That way, it is special and they look forward to it. 😉 DollFace used to like my chocolate pie. I made it for her so many times. One day, she had coconut cream pie when she went out to eat with my father and that is her favorite now. I have never attempted coconut cream, so I buy her the one she loves from the grocery store. That is fine too! Whatever dessert they like, make it or buy it for your loved ones twice a year for their birthday and Christmas. Trust me, you will make them feel so special and very loved.
What is your favorite dessert? I would love to know! Please tell me in the comments down below.
My youngest daughter is looking forward to summer. She seems to feeling a little bit better I think. The pollen has been high here in the desert. I think we are all suffering and I hope it calms down soon. The trees/bushes are blooming and it’s beautiful. I just wish it didn’t bother us like it does. I am soooo looking forward to spending time with my daughter this summer. She is planning things she wants to do and I am ready. I am also looking forward to not having to get up at 5:30 or 5:45 a.m. five days a week until August. Knowing her, she will still get up and wake me. Please Jesus, let her sleep longer! Hahaha
Let’s see… oh yes, last week my Man showed up with a “peace offering” (a red rose, he was a bad boy). It was in this really cool vase with rocks/stones and a red bow. I’ll put it in the photos. I’ve never seen anything like it. He said he would’ve gotten me a whole bouquet, but he knew it would set my allergies off. I am known to say, “DO NOT buy me any flowers!” I LOVE flowers, especially roses and tulips. 💕 I just hate sinus infections. 😔
DollFace came over for our once a week “Girl’s Night”. We had pizza and snacks. She rented us a funny movie called Isn’t It Romantic and it was funny! 😂 It does have some bad language, but it was good. I was naughty and had soda with my pizza. That means I couldn’t stay awake long enough to paint my fingernails. I’m gonna have to try to get those done tonight. My Man likes them painted red and they are bare. I took the old polish off and well… that’s about how my whole week went, undone. 🤦🏻♀️😬
*The birthday cake I made for my favorite son-in-law, the pretty bushes that are blooming, the red rose from my Man, the saying I liked this week and my box of Goobers (my favorite movie snack) from Girl’s night.
I haven’t got to write anything much this week. I have almost finished up my “Mr. Bodyguard” series and will be posting those soon.
Oh! I’m planning to write a post celebrating this:
Thank you all so much! 💕 I love you guys!!! 💋Have a blessed week everyone and stay safe from the storms. 🙏🏻
