Babies, babies everywhere!
My life has been full of these little blessings lately.
This is Addie Nona - my long time friend, Sara's little girl.
This is Nyla Jai`
She is my dear sweet friend Andrea's little girl.
I want to steal her. I won't even lie.
There is also Cora who is my new little neice and I haven't been able to meet her yet:(
My good friend, Josie, is also expecting in a few weeks too!

This is an amazing scone recipe. I've tired many and this is by far the best! Try it out and let me know what you think:)


2/3 cup butter milk or plane yogurt.
1 egg
3 c. flour
4 tsp. baking pwd
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 c. butter
1/2 c. sugar

mix well and add whatever you want (if you want): dried cherries, cranberrys, chocolate chips, white chocolate, nuts..
Edit added:)
Lightly flour your surface, pat dough out in a circle, about 1/3 to 1/2 in. thick - whatever you prefer. Cut in crazy triangles, put on to a baking sheet. Bake at 375 degrees 20 - 25 mins or until golden brown. Cool and frost, or put course sugar on top before baking - which ever you like.

Day off, things that make me happy, fresh baked bread and rainy day...

Crocs! I got them for $11.99 each, delivered to my door:)

Rainy day. My pretty, wet flag.

I finally got to organizing my coupons!
My sister in law, Becca, makes such beautiful cards! They are like art!

My bread making. I run out about twice a week and then make some more. Nothing better then the smell of fresh baked bread.

My sweet neighbor gave me some tomato plans because she had some extra. I love a new plant! I think I'll have to replant them in something a little bigger before I'm able to plant them outside.
It was a beautiful day before the rain:)
The best part, my sweet husband worked for me so that I could stay home, make bread, do laundry, coupon and just poke around... and then get my hair done. He's such a great, great man! He was born to be an amazing husband!
Spring is HERE!
I'm very glad about that.

Some of my crocus'
and the rain crushed them:,(
So pretty...
So can I plant
an onion like this?
Like one from the store
that I'd normally
cook with?
Ruffy wanted some head shots too:) This is his side shot and then...

His serious look.
My fun new hair. I LOVE it. LOVE IT. I have the best stylist!

Love the hot pink/redish chunks:) So fun!!
