Road Trip........

This Friday.....The Girls (Suzie & I) are ditching Work and
taking a Road Trip North up the Coast to Visit our Friend Melissa..
It's been many many years since the three of us were together without the men (hee hee)
Stay Tuned......

Blog Catch Up

We've been so busy lately, I have not had a chance to blog....sorry people, if I still have any readers out there, please forgive my absence.

Last week we visited with a dear friend who was visiting from Washigton State. I still think of her as my Step Mom because at one point she was my Step-Mom and she and Dad found each other again many years later after they had slip. She's always been a big part of our lives and we are always so happy to see her. The last time we saw her was at our Wedding.  Below are a few pictures from her visit.

Dad, Marion & Joe (Marions Son)
Joe has always been (My Brother) to me

Joe, is busy performing at truck shows with his Monster Truck.... Here's just one of his trucks, and this is the little one. It's a little dark, sorry it was night time and not much light at the beach. 

If you want to see more of Joe's Truck check out this website

Yesterday I attended a Baby Shower for some friends of ours, Robin & Mike (Mike is a childhoold friend and they are part of my family) they are excpecting thier first baby Boy in January but I hate to say it but I forgot my camera, I know, I know!! I am a mess. Congratulations Mike & Robin!!! We can't wait to meet the little guy!!

A few weeks ago, I attended my Cousin Tiffany's babyshower and my pictures were corrupted when I tried to download them, but Tiffany sent me some pictures to post. Tiffany and Steve are also expecting thier first baby BOY (Blake Anonthy!!) We are thrilled for them and can't wait to meet the newest member of the family.

Pumpkin Gooey Butter Cakes

Check out this Yummy Pumpkin Dessert from the Southern Queen herself, Paula Deen!!

Ingredients For cake:
  • 1 (18 1/4-ounce) package yellow cake mix
  • 1 egg
  • 8 tablespoons butter, melted
 For filling:

  •  1 (8-ounce) package cream cheese, softened
  •  1 (15-ounce) can pumpkin
  •  3 eggs
  •  1 teaspoon vanilla
  •  8 tablespoons butter, melted
  •  1 (16-ounce) box powdered sugar
  •  1 teaspoon cinnamon
  •  1 teaspoon nutmeg


1. Preheat oven to 350 °F.

2. Combine the cake mix, egg, and butter and mix well with an electric mixer. Pat the mixture into the bottom of a lightly greased 13 by 9-inch baking pan.

3. To make the filling: In a large bowl, beat the cream cheese and pumpkin until smooth. Add the eggs, vanilla, and butter, and beat together. Next, add the powdered sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg, and mix well. Spread pumpkin mixture over cake batter and bake for 40 to 50 minutes. Make sure not to overbake as the center should be a little gooey.

4. Serve with fresh whipped cream

I am currently off sugar at least until Thanksgiving, at least that is my plan. We'll see how that goes, but for some reason because it's October our entire office is packed full with candy and goodies and it's killing me!!
