Hey everyone, Hope you are all having a great August. Even though it was a scorching 101 degrees today we know that summer is coming to an end. The kids in our school district go back to school next week! Yup, Wednesday is the big day! Like other moms, I am kind of excited for them to go back and kind of sad at the same time. It will be good to get back on a schedule. Any way, since our central air cooling system is working well, (yay!) I have been heating up the oven to bake some yummy new recipes. Here is one that was posted on facebook that I had to try and I was so glad I did! Chocolate over load and so so good! Everyone in the family that tried it loved it. Here is what it looks like and the recipe. ~Enjoy~

Hello Everyone, I am happy to report that our home is finally cool! As we were getting bids on a new AC and furnace, (which by the way were shockingly high...ugggg!) after two different companies bid's had come in and then telling us the dates they would be available to install we were feeling not only hot but discouraged. We had another gentleman that owned his own heating and air company come by to give us a bid. When he looked at our old central air unit he immediately said he knew what the problem was and he left to pick up a part, came back about 40 minutes later installed the new part and we have had cool air blowing perfectly ever since! The total bill for parts and labor,.....$90!!!! We feel so blessed not to mention cool and no more sweating! The best part is we are sleeping good at night again. It is so hard to sleep when you are hot all night. Anyway, we do still need to replace our AC and furnace sometime soon, they are both 20 years old but at least for now there is no rush so we can wait for a little more convenient time. I bet you can guess who will be getting the bid for the new AC and furnace. hehehe Another great thing about having our central air working again is now that the house is cool I can heat up the oven again and actually cook and bake! Yay! Tonight for dinner I made a yummy pasta dish so I thought I would share it with you all. ~Pasta Cordon Bleu~

I know you are all probably thinking,..."Why is she posting a snowy winter picture In JUNE?" The truth is our central air unit went completely out and so we have no cool air right now! Ugggg*! It is so hot! I have been keeping the blinds and curtains closed as much as possible trying to keep the warm, (or rather HOT) air out. Windows are open in hopes of getting a little breeze blowing through and every fan we own is on full speed! We got our first bid on a new unit today which includes a new furnace...scary! But our home is 20 years old next month and so everything is due to be replaced. Any way, more bids will be coming in tomorrow and then hopefully SOON we will be getting the old AC and furnace replaced and I can stop sweating! I thought maybe by posting a snowy, winter picture I would feel a little cooler. Sorry to say it didn't work. But it is still a beautiful picture so I hope you enjoy it!

Hi everyone, Years ago I bought a hutch/china cabinet with the intention of painting it one day. Well, that day never came. I guess I just felt a little nervous about painting it even though I love the look of painted wood I realize not everyone does. I have been looking at before and after pictures on the internet of of similar wood items and now I am excited to FINALLY paint my hutch! Here are a few pictures of before and after painted items.

Lately I have been feeling like there is something that is just not feeling right in my homes decor. So the other day I started picking out some pictures on the internet of kitchens that appealed to me and the thing I discovered when looking at the pictures that I liked was that they all have a French Country Style and they all have COLOR! Red, Yellow and Green to be more specific. So I guess the thing I need to do is to somehow start incorporating these colors into my home. Here are some pictures of three of the kitchens that caught my eye.
