Wordless Wednesday - Nanny & Me!

Okay...so it's almost wordless! LOL On Thanksgiving I wasn't feeling well so my daughter decided she would make Thanksgiving dinner this year. So...I threw on some clothes and headed down to her house to enjoy some great tasting food. (yes folks...I went out of the house without makeup on!) Anyway....after dinner I had a play date with my beautiful little grand daughter who is the apple of my eye! I think she looks a lot like me!

Getting Dark Way Too Early For Me!!!

Today I really took notice to how early it gets dark here now on the East Coast. At 4:45 pm here in PA. it was dark outside...totally depressing if you ask me! I have never been a fan of winter time because I hate cold, snow & ice...now I can add darkness to the growing list of things I hate about winter.

When it gets dark out so earlier...I just don't have any energy to get through my evening. I wish I lived in a place that doesn't get so affected by the time changes & season changes like Pennsylvania does.

I am really looking forward to fall & winter getting over with...so that spring and summer will get here sooner.

~* Happy Thanksgiving *~

I would like to wish all of my family and friends a very Happy Thanksgiving!!! I know for myself, I have a lot to be Thankful for! As a person who struggles with a chronic illness and disease, I am thankful for all of my family and friends who stand by me and support me 24/7 as I battle to gain control of my own health.
I am thankful that I married a wonderful man who I have been with for over 27 years and been married for 24 of those years. My husband Sam is a true diamond when it comes to men in this world...I could not of married a better man. I am thankful for my beautiful 25 yr. old daughter who is the apple of my eye. I am so proud of her now that she has become a mother herself to my beautiful 18 month old grand daughter who is also the apple of my eye. I have so much to be thankful for!
I hope everyone enjoys their Thanksgiving! Remember...this season is about being Thankful for what you have! Enjoy the good food!

Wordless Wednesday - Fall Is Halfway Over!

It is hard to believe but we are now 1/2 way through fall which means winter is just around the corner. I am not a fan of wintertime as I like being outdoors in the warm sunshine. Here in PA. the leaves are done changing colors and dropping to the ground quickly...it saddens me to see all of the naked trees now :(

Got Some More Giveaway Wins!!!

For the past couple of months I have won a slew of items from online blog giveaways, however...I have been really busy so I haven't had time to post pics & blog them like I used to do. I will try to get better at that from now on.
Today I received 3 of my wins. I got an adoreable 3 pc. Little Girls Summer outfit from an online store called Babies & Toddlers. I love how all 3 pieces perfectly match. We got the dress, pantaloons & a sun hat.
Then I won a 2 pc. little girls outfit which consists of a black T-shirt with a gold metallic owl printed on the front of it...with matching black pull-on pants. My grandbaby is going to be one best dressed little girl! I won this set from an online store called Petite Couture.
The final item that arrived today was from a store called Lime Tree Cove. I got a barmaid drink remixer bar tool which will make margaritas, mojitos, martinis and daiquris with ease. Lime Tree Cover also sent me a box of their cocktail spices. I am going to give this entire set to my daughter's boyfriend as he loves this kind of stuff!
Nice haul for one week!

Wordless Wednesday!

As usual...well, at least the majority of the time my wordless wednesday post/photo is of my little grand daughter...this time you can see 1/2 of her mom (aka my daughter) in the background. We were all sitting down watching Toy Story 3. It seems that grandbaby really loves that movie as she sat still the entire time!

Bee Hive Has Been Destroyed!

A few weeks ago my hubby went up to my MIL's house due to a bee problem she was having...I knicknamed him for the day - Billy The Exterminator LOL anyway...when he got up there he was not expecting to find a bee hive that was this big! OMG...the bee hive was larger than a freaking basketball!

My hubby and a friend finally came up with a game plan and they were able to destroy the bee nest aka bee hive! Geesh...I can't get over how large that hive was!
