August 14, 2017 – Monday

We got a response from our counter offer today.  It was pretty good, almost everything we wanted, so we countered their counter and now we’re anxiously awaiting their response.  I so hope they say yes!

My New Doo

I did it, I cut all my hair off.  The defining moment came when I burned my forearm pretty bad with my curling iron.  I haven’t been to a beauty parlor in a very long time, about 10 years or so.  My good friend Carmen referred me to her hairdresser and wow, she was great!  I love my new doo 🙂

Renée Passed!!!

Renée 30-31 weeks…..L.C.S.W.  🙂

My super smart daughter Renée Jeanne did it!  She passed her license exam on her very first attempt!  She is now a licensed clinical social worker!  I am so very proud of her!  Definitely, the very best thing that happened today!!!

August 11, 2017 – Friday

The best thing about today was coming home to my hard working hubby.  We were watching a movie together when all of a sudden we got a tremendous thunderstorm – the kind that make you glad that you are home and all cozied up on the couch. I am so grateful for my life and for my family – I have the best husband ever!

Great Things

I decided I was going to write down, what the best thing was that happens every single day. It’s a good plan to be grateful and I wanted to be sure and remember all the great things about my life.  So….today, the best thing that happened to me was that our house is one step closer on being sold!  We got an offer the other day and we are going to make a counter offer.  I really hope our buyers agree and we can start our new adventure down close to my daughter and son in law and their new baby Jay that’s due in October!  Fingers crossed!

Bacon topped lemon cupcakes

 

Bacon topped lemon cupcakes

 

I had a hankerin’ for something sweet and lemony and decided on….lemon cupcakes.  I used a box cake mix and ready made icing this time since they were already in my pantry.  And to make them even more decadent, I topped them with some cooked, chopped bacon – oh my goodness, they were amazingly delicious!  Y’all just have to try these when you get a chance, you will be so happy you did!
