Wouldn't This Be Fun???

I think I want this.

I don't think I want to pedal it.
I think I want to wear her dress.
And stand beside it.
Complete with the fresh flowers.
Wouldn't want to sweat.
Now would I?

Vacation Let Down

Something about vacation being over.

It's like the after Christmas blues.

Everyone has gone their own ways.

Regrouping until we do it again.

Back to painting and laying tile and working.

Trying to remind myself how blessed I am.

Thankful that we could be together.

Missing them all.

Especially HER.

The BEST Dessert I Have Ever Had

Hands Down. The best dessert I have ever had.

I made this pie (it makes two pies) the other night for a night out with my
Beach Buddies.

Oh. My. Word. You HAVE to try it.

No wonder they sell it for $16.95 a pie. It's worth it.

Try it and let me know what you think.

Go....get the stuff.....make it. I'm waiting to hear! It's THAT good!

Ashley McMakin holds her coconut caramel pie, a staple at Ashley Mac's Catering. Ashley Mac's Coconut-Caramel Pie
(yields 2 deep-dish pies)
1/4 cup butter
1 (8 ounce) package flaked coconut
1 cup chopped pecan halves
8 ounces cream cheese
1 (14 ounce) can sweetened condensed milk
16 ounces frozen whipped topping, thawed
2 deep dish (9-inch) pie shells, baked
1 (12 ounce) jar caramel topping

Melt butter in a large skillet. Add coconut and pecans. Cook until brown and set aside.

Combine cream cheese and sweetened condensed milk in a mixing bowl. Beat with mixer until smooth. Fold in whipped topping.

Layer ¼ cream cheese mixture in each pie shell.

Drizzle caramel topping (about half the jar) on top of cream cheese mixture in both pies. Sprinkle half coconut mixture on top. Repeat the layer, beginning with the cream-cheese mixture.

Freeze. Serve frozen.

Painted Brick....Check!!

I FINALLY got my fireplace painted. It was ugly red brick. Here is the *before*.

Here is after it was primed.
We painted the inside black since it was already partially black from soot.

Here is the *After* pic. Brick is the same as my wall color.
It is Sherwin Williams *Navajo White*.

Now, I'm off to decorate!!!
