Blog_2014 835 Blog_2014 837 Tried a new chicken recipe today - Garlic Lemon chicken. Isn't it pretty? Fonzy and the boys weren't too thrilled with it, even though they ate it. I think if I had spiced it a little more they would have liked it. Oh well...the chicken looked good in the pictures. As good as a raw chicken can look.

This doll is taking entirely too long! I want to knit something else, but determined to get this finished!

If anyone wants to know, having 2 dogs is A LOT of work! And the little one with his tongue sticking out at me is the most work! He wasn't feeling me right then, and I probably wasn't feeling him either.

Blog_2014 814 Blog_2014 811 Blog_2014 815 Blog_2014 809 After church today we went to a little place called Mr.Wonderful's Chicken and Waffles. We'd heard it was good, so wanted to check it out. The restaurant wasn't very big, but the atmosphere was nice. The chicken and good! The chicken was the best I've had. Even though it was fried, it wasn't greasy at all. And the seasoning...I wish I knew what they used. It was seasoned perfectly! Mr. Wonderful's was wonderful like the sign says and I would definitely go again!

Today marks 11 yrs. we've been married. When we got together almost 16 years ago, neither one of us were thinking about forever. Now I can't see my life without him. We celebrated with date night. We haven't had one in a while. It felt good to be out, just the two of us.

Blog_2014 764 Blog_2014 768Cupcake affair.

I've been having a thing for cupcakes lately. Not really sure why, but I've been making them a lot lately. We are having another bake sale at my office, so I made butter pecan and carrot cake cupcakes. My favorites were the carrot cake. Yum Yum!

Blog_2014 738 Of all the things I knit, my favorite are dolls. From my very first one, to this one, I fall in love with each one. I think my love of knitted dolls also comes from my Mom knitting dolls for all her nieces. I often wonder if she loved making them too. One of my cousins still has the doll my mom made over 25yrs ago! I hope the dolls I've knit and given are loved and cherished just as much.

I'm currently working on her dress and haven't decided how I want her hair just yet.

All the snow has melted, and there's a hint of Spring in the air. Porch swing weather is on it's way!

Blog_2014 742 I felt like baking a pie today.

I need a new apple pie recipe. This one is simple, and I want something more. This one looks delish!

Well, the weatherman got it right this time!

The snow started around noon, and quickly covered everything in white. Just like a kid, I couldn't wait to go outside. Our neighborhood was so quiet. Everyone was nestled away inside, but the snow was beckoning me. To enjoy it's winter beauty, the hush of the neighborhood, the swirl of flakes. It was magical. And I enjoyed every minute of it.
