What an amazing day!!  Make it yours!! 🙂


Keep your face always toward the sunshine – and shadows will fall behind you.

Walt Whitman


It’s been 14 years


When you first came into this world, innocent and beautiful, I was scared to death though I never told anyone. I was worried what the world was going to do to you. But now as you are growing up and I see the confidence you have, I am less worried. I am not going to say I am not because I still am your mom. I will always worry, but I see the young woman you are becoming and I see your confidence growing every day. I see what your potential is and I hope you can achieve all your dreams what ever they may be. I hope your life will be smooth and not have too many potholes to fall in. You are so amazing and beautiful. Happy 14th birthday!!

Recipe Friday – Slow Cooker Jambalaya


Well we finally started to cool down a bit…I mean when you go from having 90 degree weather to 60 degree I would definitely call that a cool down wouldn’t you?  So with that in mind, I thought I would get out my slow cooker and cook up something to warm you from the inside out. This recipe does just that. As I have said before, I love shrimp and most recipes with shrimp I will give a try at least once. Of course I love jambalaya and if I have the time I fix it quite often. Enter the slow cooker. I love my slow cooker. I can honestly tell you I use my slow cooker for so many different things. It makes my life so amazingly simple. I don;t know what I would do without it. Anyway…back to the recipe. I found this recipe online and to be honest it is really good easy recipe for Jambalaya…Hope you enjoy it!!
