It's late at night... and I'm truly tired but I'm not winding down... ever have those nights?? tonight is my night .. so I decided I would hop on her and show you what I've been up to these past couple of days....
I decided... at the spur of the moment I was going to make my OWN cadbury cream eggs.. LOL LOL... I must have been crazy because it is literally a 7 hours process.. if NOT more!! So I thought I would share my pictures of my creation... Please note.. they are not egg shaped.. but more flat on one side and egg shaped on the other... Oh well.... Here's a sneak peak!!

Yesterday .. I had a day full of appointments and I really didn't plan out my baking very well and I started making herbed hamburger rolls... The dough rose once.. and because of timing I had to let it rise again.. shape them.. and then rise AGAIN!! I thought they might not work... but I was wrong... they came out so nice... this particular one came out looking like a heart!! We ate them up tonight with our hamburgers and Havarti and dill cheese... YUM!!!
I found this cute cute Valentines Day Card in Paper Crafts 2006... it is a Heidi Swapp Design.. the instructions were VERY VAGUE.. so I had to dive in and figure out all the items.. I made my own hearts on this card and my own YOU title... The colors are a bit different too.. but the whole concept is hers.. I just altered it!! I mailed these out to a couple of friends and my nieces and nephews..!!
What I'm reading!! Hubby and I are NOT in financial trouble... we barely have debt... I wanted to read this book to actually gain more knowledge about money.. how to invest... save more.. I love his quote.. LOVE IT!! "Don't even consider keeping up with the Joneses"... "They're Broke"... And in this book it states that 90%.. YES 90% of American's buy stuff they CAN NOT AFFORD!! Now don't get me wrong.. I'm not sitting in a castle with servants... we're your average Joe's... and there have been many times I do get depressed with what other's have.. fancier homes.. nicer vehicles.. even nicer clothes... but deep down... I know that I am BLESSED.. I know that my kids are happy.. and probably because of my frugalness... they do pretty well with their own money!! Kids learn from their parents... I don't want them to learn.. life is about credit.. I want them to learn.. if you have the cash.. then you can do it!! Owe NO man anything!!!
