I thought I would share with you the incredible chocolate mousse cake we had over the weekend for my husband's b-day! If you are a chocolate lover you would have been in heaven! I wanted o show you this pretty cake with little specks of gold leafing on it. My son thought it was spray painted tinfoil. All my kids had to eat the gold!

We just finished the cake yesterday! Such a lovely bite of pleasure!I love cake! Cookies too! It's my downfall.Ooh la la just had to share! Have a great day!

A scary bees nest....

As I was looking out my window the other day I noticed this dangling thing in the tree. I said to myself" Oh My Gosh" Look at that! This nest is in our yard and it's been hidden by the leaves. Now that the leaves are gone there it was. So I took my camera and took some shots of it. As I zoomed in I could see the bees flying in and out of that hole. Wow! I told my kids to stay far away from that! I can only imagine if that falls or something...the amount of bees!!!!!!!!!Anyways a bit of nature I'm sharing with you! Have great day!

Tarte a la framboise

Ooh la yummy! Just wanted to let you see our dessert last night! I of course did not make it. My friend Joe did! Lol! Trader Joes that is! I saw these tarts the other day and I bought an Apple Tarte Tatin which I will show you another day! They are both products of France! The presentation looks like it comes from a patisserie! This tarte was so yummy! I thought I would tempt your tummies again and advice you to run to your nearest Trader Joes and get some! Perfect for the upcoming holidays or to whip out when company comes! A little secret from me to you!Happy Weekend!

Cherished Moments

As I look at this sweet figurine I can't help but think of cherished moments! Each day is a blessing and sometimes we take every day moments for granted. I'm trying so hard to have a more positive outlook on things and really cherish each little moment that makes me smile. Just like this sweet couple .They look so in love and happy to be together!

I found this adorable figurine at a flea market awhile ago and do not know the origin of it or how old it is. I've had it displayed in my home for awhile and now I'm passing it on to someone who would like to have a smile every time they look at it! It's currently for sale in my Etsy shop.Wishing you all a happy day full of positive thoughts!

Need a cup of Joe?

It's a beautiful ,crisp,sunny morning here! Wow! What a difference from yesterday. I'm getting ready to go for my morning run. I'm having a cup of Joe before I go! Lol! I bought this coffee from Trader Joe's last week and it's the best coffee I've tasted in a long time! I love coffee! I thought I would try their brand and they had many kinds to choose from.This one is medium roast with 100% Arabica beans. It comes with the whole beans and you grind it there yourself! It so fresh and the aroma is wonderful!Get this...the price was $ 3.49 for 14 oz.! Go out and get this coffee if you have a Trader Joe's near you!! If you don' sorry I am for you! Lol! No really it's a fantastic store!! Also did you ever wonder where the expression "cup of Joe" came from? I found this answer...

"Cup of joe" is an American nickname for coffee. The phrase goes back to the mid-1840s, and is of unclear origin, though it is possibly short for "Old Black Joe," the title of a popular Stephen Foster song. In any case, it predates Josephus Daniels, the Secretary of the Navy who banned the serving of alcohol on ships in 1914.

Happy Sunday!
