A Sweet & Salty Trail Mix Turkey

Thanksgiving is almost here! I have a fantastic trail mix recipe that is perfect for munching on while you are waiting for the turkey or during the big game. This recipe has been in my collection since my Bunco days. (Does anyone still play?)Β  One of my Bunco buddies would set a bowl of this at each table in some adorable way. It is salty and sweet and ridiculously addicting…..not exactly healthy, but hey, it does have peanuts! πŸ™‚

The calendar says that it is officially summer!!! Does your family enjoy playing outdoor games? We had so much fun with a couple of them this past weekend at the lake that I wanted to share our current top 5 with you (in no particular order.) πŸ™‚ These are all small enough to throw in the car when you head to your next reunion or get together with friends. They are also all reasonably priced and readily available at either sporting good or department stores. My husband has always been known as “the entertainment coordinator” in our family.

4 Fresh Takes on Fruit “Trays” (And a Fantastic Dip Recipe!)

“But the FRUIT of the spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control; against such things there is no law.”
Galatians 5:22-23

I have a major love affair with fruit. One of my favorite breakfasts is a waffle topped with peanut butter and colorful fresh fruit then drizzled with honey until it sparkles a bit. How could anyone doubt the existence of God at that moment? πŸ™‚ I am also the gal who offers to bring the fruit tray to every family event. It’s a crowd favorite, folks, and healthy to boot!

A Baseball-Themed Graduation Party

Here it is! My first post!! I have been thinking about and praying about this for OVER A YEAR as I planned for our first guy to leave the nest. It was such a joy to plan his graduation reception that it kept me from focusing too much on the fact that he would soon be living under another roof. Don’t get me wrong…I have had my moments, but he is already almost done with his first year of college and will be home for the summer! Momma can’t wait! I decided it was about time I shared this party with y’all. Maybe you 2018 graduate mommas can pull some last-minute inspiration from it.
