Great day, Great Life


It isn’t perfect but it’s pretty darn close. I’m going to continue to count my blessings and be thankful for the here and now. I feel like a big ole great weight is lifted off my shoulders.

I guess having faith does pay off.

Have a great day everyone ❤

SWYF Sunday


There are times that in your mind you constantly give people the benefit of the doubt, trust in them, believe them, feel in your heart that the motives/intentions that the have for you are pure and in your best interest, right? I for the most part live my life with these types of beliefs but then there are those couple of people in your life that when you step back and analyze what type of relationship you have with them or what is it that is making the relationship a substantial meaningful one, it hits you. Well it hit me. The timing of the phone call, the words that are being exchanged, and that gut feeling that you know in your heart it’s all wrong.

Yet it’s wrong over and over again but why do we submit? Why do we hold on to that one piece of hope that things might change and turn around? It is the chain of events that have taken place repeatedly that I now realized it wasn’t for me it was for them. Their intentions were for their own best interest. No matter how much you want to believe that there was something genuine there, that feeling bursts. I always wanted to believe that it was good and right for all those years but little things that are surfacing now make me realize that half the time it was all bs. I’m not saying there was some “real” moments in there but in the end when they are trying to hold on to you to get what they can you finally wake up and say, ahhh I see. It took a while for me to wake up but I did finally with the help of someone else who doesn’t even know he helped me see how I should be treated, that is when it all became clear.

Like I said before, I really want to write a book about my life and start straight from the beginning. The course of events that have taken place in my life all lead up to somewhere and I think I am at the place where I’m suppose to be finally. We shall see….

Easy mini cheese cake and pumpkin pies


These were so easy to make and everyone loved how they tasted! I have two little guys ages 8 and 9, I’m in school full-time working on my associates in Human Services, and I work from home and substitute teach at the elementary school! I really have no time for fussing around with timely recipes so things like this work perfect into my schedule!

For the mini cheese cake pies:

Jello brand boxed cheese cake mix(follow instructions)

Pillsbury premade pie crust(2 come in a package in the dairy section of your grocery store)

Roll out and use flour for a light dusting so it won’t stick to the cutting bored

Use a round biscuit cutter to make circles to fit for a mini muffin pan.

Grease the mini muffin pan with butter flavor cooking spray. Line muffin pans with the pastry cutouts. Remove from oven when done and let cool.

Mean while when your baking the mini pie crusts, prepare your cheese cake filling. Pour in pie crust and chill.

You can top with a fruit dressing, caramel or chocolate syrup.

Mini pumpkin pies

I like to use Libby’s  pumpkin pie mix rather than the pure pumpkin. I like the taste better and it’s actually less work.

Follow instructions for pie mix and pour into mini pie shells before cooking them. I also like to top the pumpkin pies with nuts.

These were quick and easy deserts that had a nice presentation as well!
