I wish I may...

I wish I might...


 "wish" upon the stars tonight...I'm really going to stick with "wish upon the stars tonight"...because sometimes you just want to make a wish you know...


I'm easily sidetracked right now if you couldn't already tell but I guess I should start over to get the effect that I was wanting,   right?

Okay So here we go...


I wish I may...


I wish I might...

that the piece to the hot water tank in our home stinkin' finally arrives...because frankly I am tired of "luke cold" showers...I'm saving the hot water for the kiddos...but I got to tell you I have been waiting 2 1/2 months for a stinkin' piece to arrive...and hubby says it still is not in...and I'm getting slightly annoyed...{actually I promised honesty...so I'll say it again...I'm getting ticked...}

because I like my showers hot...burn the skin...turn the skin red...{not pink}, HOT...red HOT...HOT showers...and for 2 1/2 months I've endured...yep...I'm tired of the freezing cold... {I realize everyone it could be very worse so please no judging}...

and I'm getting annoyed of shaving and it not even making a difference when I step out of the shower....

In all honesty...I really never meant that to make it to the blog...but it just came out and I feel like not turning back now...today is one of those days where I'm just typing as I think...shall we start over again?

one more time...


I wish I may...



I wish I might...




...wish upon a star tonight...


that the 10 days left before Christmas...I'm surrounded by my girls...enjoying the spirit of the holidays...laughing...doing things that make all of us happy...surrounding myself with others that have the holiday spirit...the true spirit...without expectations...doing things out of love...

One tradition I have that I want to pass on to our girls is one day dedicated only to Christmas baking...we had this day growing up and it was always my favorite...but I loved it...and this year


I'm going to find that day even if it is December 23rd...and I want the girls to enjoy it...although I foresee sugar and flour everywhere...but that may just be the best part...{at least that is what I will have to tell myself...} as I realize the mess our fun has created...

We had the tradition of doing fantastic sweet treats...but my goal is to add a new one to the mix this year...spice it up a little...my little spin on things...and I'm thinking these pecan delights shown below...yummy yummy...so....if it calls to you....

that these last 10 days before Christmas are just wonderful, delightful, miracle-happening, flour pouring, cookie baking, laughable, believable, and well spent for all of you too!...

And just to add to the mix...my friend Kasey who I just adore is doing a superb give-a-way on her blog with items in her shop...visit her blog...leave a comment, blog about it, and seriously "make a wish upon a star tonight" that you win it because I'm telling you packages from her...will make you literally jump for joy...it ends midnight December 17th...hurry quick because she is one inspiring woman!

Blessings to you all!

I love your blog...I could never live without a hot shower...how did you ever do it??? I just want to thank you so so much for your lovely caring comment you left on my blog...we so miss our Rosie but your blog love has helped me to carry on today. I think that book Dog Heaven would be a wonderful idea. Thank you so so much for the sharing.

I can't think of anything worse than a cold shower during winter time. Hopefully that gets fixed soon! Hope you enjoy your day of baking with your girls :)

Oh honey, it's like your camping in December!! You know, how they set up the showers to get ice cold after 30 seconds of scalding hot? I know know this because I've been forced into a life with fellow campers (aka my husband and my children) I think you need to set up some of my hot apple cider with bourbon, and a heated towel, post exiting nasty shower...

Wishing you hot showers in the immediate future. If not sooner.

Your baking day sounds wonderful with your little girls. my son loves to watch me cook, he stands on his stool and peeks his head over the counter to try and see...I bet you will have all kinda of fun making new memories! Happy weekend to you darling~ xo
