Sweet Caroline

I hosted a shower for my dear friend & co-worker on Saturday......

Me & Chelsea (aka Lil' momma)

Her FABULOUS cake from Baby Cakes by Angie, the bottom layer was strawberry cake with strawberry cream cheese icing, the top layer was butter cake with butter cream icing.

Blake was sooo excited about all the gifts they received

This is a picture of the Hackberry Hero's (her neighbors)

Let me tell you my friend it was FABULOUS!!!! Sooo Good!!! The Bud Light lime was the perfect addition to a perfect burger!!!!

When Michael & Jacob started the deck on Saturday the temperature was in the 30's Sunday it had warmed up to the mid 60's & a few friends showed up to help

It took them 2 day's to finish the deck... I fed the helpers Pizza

Michael got the steps built the following weekend..

As soon as the wood drys out we will be able to stain the deck.
A BIG thank you to my brother & our friends who helped that very cold weekend!!!!

The Bug

My poor husband got the stomach flu Thursday night.....
When he got his appetite back I made him home made potato soup.
This is his Nan's (grandmothers) recipe.....

5 skinned red potatoes

Chop to small pieces & put in a pot with water only covering the top of the potatoes,
Boil till the potatoes are very soft then mash keeping the water...

You will need salt, pepper, milk, butter & flower..

add the salt, pepper, 3 tbs of butter & in a container w/ a lid put 1/2 a c. of milk & 3 tbs of flower, shake very well to avoid lumps... once combined add milk mixture to soup.
You can add more butter, salt & pepper to taste.

Yummie!!!!! This soup is very comforting!!!
