Fun Idea at Work

Here’s a fun idea to do at work – write a short note that says something like “You’re gorgeous”  or “You’re beautiful”, etc., something very positive and uplifting, and stick it to the mirror in the public restroom.  Don’t tell anyone you’re the person who put the note on the mirror, it’s more fun to see their reactions if they don’t know it’s you.  Then sit back and watch all the smiling faces – you’ll be amazed how people feel so much better about themselves after reading your note!



The future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams.

Cast Iron Pan Apple Pie


1 pkg. ready pie crust in a box (2 crusts included)

½ stick butter

½ cup brown sugar

1 can apple pie filling

2 tbsp. sugar

2 tbsp. cinnamon

8 inch cast iron skillet

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

Mix the 2 tbsp. sugar & 2 tbsp. cinnamon together and set aside in a separate small dish.

Melt the butter in bottom of pan. Take out 2 tbsp. of the melted butter and set aside in a separate small dish. Add the brown sugar to the melted butter in the pan. Stir until combined.

Lay one of the pie crusts on top of the butter/brown sugar mixture.

Scoop out the apple pie filling and put on top of the pie crust that’s in the pan.

Sprinkle the apple pie filling with a tablespoon of the sugar and cinnamon mixture.

Place the other pie crust on top of the apple pie filling and fold over the edges. Brush crust with the 2 tbsp. melted butter. Make 2 slits in the top of the crust to vent.

Sprinkle the top with the remaining tablespoon of the sugar and cinnamon mixture.

Bake in 400 degree oven for about 30 minutes until the edges are bubbly and the crust is golden brown.

Serve either warm or room temperature. Great with vanilla ice cream 🙂



Scott Sold 12!

Yesterday, I wrote my husband his daily note, like I do every morning.  He sells Chevy’s for a living. It was the last day of the month and he needed two more sales to reach his required monthly quota of 12.  I wished him luck, told him he would achieve his goal and that I believed in him.  And he did it – he sold his 12!  He is one happy camper and I am so very proud of him.  When my hard working hubby came home last night, he re-read his note and said thank you – your note worked.  This is just one example of how the power of notes encourages your loved ones.
