I live in the grand state of Texas! I' love Texas!! I've learned it's hotter than the devils tongue...more beautiful than a fresh baked cup cake....and friendlier than the high school counselor that gave you the creeps. Come share my adventures in life. I'm a mother of three beautiful one's & two hairy ones (my doggies). I must also mention that I'm the CEO of the family. I've learned that life is more than 'my fine shirt just got soaked' bath times, 'hey we are so running fashionable late again' swimming lessons, your most recent 'break down' in the laundry room (yes I'm talking to you; now put down the dryer lint slowly), the latest 'does my butt look big' moment, or even that rock awesome meal you cooked last night. Life is random, sexy, unbelievable, predictable and darn cool. Lets get crafty, create, explore Texas, and have some pretty sweet experiences!

The ‘sport’ of breadmaking…

I did it!  I actually entered a bread contest…I made Aussie Swiss Cheese Beer Bread and let me tell you it was soooo good!  The competition is always steep and they have actually retired certain flavors because they won too many times.  After the taste testing time they do a silent auction to buy the winning and non-winning breads.  I didn’t win, but no hard feelings here.  It was my first try and I was pleased just to enter.  My baking skills aren’t as sharp as some of my other skills and this was one of my few attempts that have actually worked and turned out so nice.  My loaf was a beautiful speciamen of bread and it had a very intense flavor.  The Aussie’s know a good bread when they write it.  I’m sure I’ll give it another go next year (probably with a couple of different entries) and who knows that envied Bosch Bread Mixer could be mine; moowaahhaahaa!  Enough with the evil laughs…although…ok ok moving on.  The Scandinavian festival is always loaded with traditional experiences, good food, and loads of adventure.  If you missed this year I highly recommend the trek to Ephraim next year.  I had the great fortune to take my husband and kids with me to the parade.    At first the weather was quite chilly, but as the sun peaked out more and more it turned out to be a very nice morning for a parade.  After catching handfuls of candy we headed home to spend the rest of the day with family.  I love holidays….don’t you?  The hunger for love is much more difficult to remove than the hunger for bread.”  Mother Teresa

    Thanks…I read your posts all the time! Trying new things isn't as challenging as teaching young children, so here's kudos to you!
