Moore, Oklahoma needs our help! Red Cross Disaster relief

https://www.redcross.org/donate/index.jsp?donateStep=2&itemId=prod10002

I just donated to the Red Cross for the disaster relief for Moore, Oklahoma.  Please find it in your heart to donate as well, every dollar adds up.  They've lost so much, and it just goes to show that our lives can change in an instant.  But it's such a blessing to have others concerned and willing to help those in need.

Maryland Crab Soup

I tried this recipe last night and it was delicious!  I've been sick with a sinus infection so I am a little congested and felt like eating soup for dinner, plus I also had another container of crab meat that I got from Nick's of Clinton that I wanted to do something with so I found this recipe.  It is really easy (which I love) and it didn't take long to cook either.  If you are a soup and or a crab person this is worth a try on your weekly dinner menu.

I do practice what I preach

I wanted to show you all that I do wear and do the things I talk about on my blog, not necessarily that anyone had any doubt (but I had a friend tell me she wants to see pictures).  I know that showing is sometimes more effective than telling.


Here I have my hair tied with a scarf, I love using scarves when I am having a "I don't know what to do with my hair" day.

Our 11 year anniversary

Look what my hubby sent me for our 11 year anniversary.  The words to this song means a lot, he caused me to shed a few tears.  We've been through a lot together, we've had great times, sad times, I-can't-stand-you times, I want a divorce times, I can't live without times.  I pray for God's blessing for the years ahead.
