It's Cinco de Mayo!

Which for us means Tacos and 'Ritas tonite! Ole! So how do you celebrate Cinco de Mayo if at all?  My granddaughter thinks we should celebrate everything, so I try for her. This one is special to her because she is half Mexican. And the older she gets the more she wants to learn about her heritage. So whatever you do today...just enjoy it!

One year smoke free!

Today is my one year anniversary of stopping smoking. Sometimes I still want one but it's getting less and less. Overall I feel much better and have saved loads of money. Now if I can just get hubby to stop that would be great. Last yr he told me if I made it six months he'd quit. Well come November he did quit for about a week. I've quitting asking , I won't be a nag about it like most reformed smokers , he will quit if he ever really decides he wants to.  So what should I do to celebrate this milestone? Maybe go buy me something pretty.  So anyone else an ex smoker, was it hard for you to quit? How long have you been a non smoker?

Let's talk coffee!

I love coffee, if I'm not careful I could drink it all day long. My favorite is Community Coffee. Right now I'm drinking Pecan Praliene.  Wow it is so good and smells fantastic.  Everytime I have a cup and my son in law is near me he comments on how good it smells. We drink Community on a regular basis here sometimes switching off with eight o'clock coffe.  I doctor my coffee up with cream and splenda. I just can't drink it black that often anymore. So that's what I drink at home , when I'm out I like to get A Seattle's best, white chocolate raspberry is my favorite and if we go to Starbucks I like to get mocha frappichinos.  So what's your favorite coffee at home and out and about?

For dinner we are staying pretty traditional this year...ham, dressing, mashed taters and veggies. Chicken strips for the kiddos. I'm excited this year because it will be Carter's first Easter to hunt eggs, that should be fun.

The end of a long week!

Finally even though it is Sunday it is the end of the week for my hubby and me. He's off the next two days and we plan on doing some much needed yard work. As for the rest of the people in the house it's back to school and work for them. Except for Little Man he will hang with us. He had a milestone tonite and went from a baby bed to a big boy bed. He is so proud of it , at bedtime he went in there and went right to sleep! I'll have to post pics soon.

I think I'm getting the hang of this blog thing. We shall see. LOL Mark, my husband has been telling me to do this for awhile. So I decided to give it a try. If you are still reading this I hope you will stop by again. Thanks!
