Thanksgiving Happenings

Wishing everyone a wonderful Thanksgiving!
Its a wonderful rainy day out. So fresh and still warm and snug inside.
Started out this morning baking pies. Jon wanted a pecan pie and I wanted a pumpkin, of course I will be enjoying both :)
We wanted to eat our  Thanksgiving dinner around 2:30 -3:00 ish, but plans change which works out better because I have all of my preparations done and now just waiting for that bird to finish cooking which means I get to sit down and take a break before our feast and make a post!
Just need to finish up some of the dishes and get Zane all dressed up for his turkey dinner. 
I got my makeup on YAY! Didn't get that hair curled though. Honey Man is getting his shower and shave now so we should all be looking our best.
Got the table set and all ready for all that yummy food.
On my way home from the store yesterday I realized that the date was November 24th, which means it was my 3rd Anniversary to my amazing Honey Man!! How did we forget it? Luckily I had cheesecake fixings in the fridge and we had a nice romantic evening eating hot head boritos and oreo cheese cake watching an old movie, shop around the corner. Cozy, cozy cozy!
Happy Anniversary my Jonathan!!
 Its so funny because I was talking to my mom on the phone yesterday and my parents celebrate the same anniversary as we do but we both forgot to wish each other happy tidings LOL!!! Happy late Anniversary mom and dad!!!
If you are wondering what I had for lunch today while cooking? I will be happy to inform you that I had a huge slice of oreo cheesecake :)

LORD, you are my God; 
I will exalt you and praise your name,  
for in perfect faithfulness    
 you have done wonderful things,    
 things planned long ago. 
Isaiah 25:1-9

Many blessings to you all dear friends :)
And Happy Thanksgiving

Pumpkin Fun

Getting ready for Thanksgiving :)
We have shopped and planned our menu and now just getting ready to cook it for the wonderful day of Thanksgiving. 
It will be just the three of us + the bump this year so we are trying to keep down the amount of food we make which is kinda hard Especially for pregnant me. It is so fun having these cravings in the Thanksgiving and Christmas seasons. All my cravings have been given wonderful care and attention to by the way :) 

I have been having fun getting inspired for decorating the table and place settings. I found a really neat china set that I got for almost nothing and it will be just perfect for our Thanksgiving dinner.
Jon got this prego picture of me a couple of days ago. I am now 34 weeks along which amazes me. It sure goes by so much faster when your chasing another little one around. 
This little man is getting so big and so smart. He has been teething his big boy teeth now so his gums are getting full. 
He is really excited about mommy having a baby bump. He lifts my shirt up and kisses my tummy and says "baby' and sometimes he says "boy"
Were are having such a blast being parents of this little man and even now feeling the reality of having another baby so soon. 
We have so much to be thankful for. Jon and I were just talking today how good the Lord is to us. We see his love in so many ways throughout our daily lives. Today Jon came home with three bags of really nice cloth diapers. He was going to buy from a lady off of craigslist. When he got home from picking them up he had tears in his eyes because the lady told him that the Lord was telling her to give them to us and also that He loves us so much. These diapers are $10 a piece and there were three huge bags full. The true knowledge of God's grace and love is more then we can handle at times.
I'm wishing everyone a very blessed and joyful Thanksgiving. 
We are so thankful :)
Much Love
In Christ

My Not So Flopped Chocolate Mousse

*There's nothing better than a good friend, except a good friend with CHOCOLATE Linda Grayson, "The Pickwick Papers" 
Yesterday I was trying to come up with a dessert idea to bring over for my dear friend Julie and her husband who just had their first baby boy 2 weeks ago. I got the craving for chocolate mouse and looked inside my fridge and found the necessary items for the recipe.
Once the chocolate was good and melted in its double boiler I got out the cream and found that it had gone bad already Oh no!! So I switched my recipe around and followed another that I had read up on by adding some egg yolks. My chocolate ratio was way off so I added more egg yolks. 
Very doubtful it was not going to thicken I poured my flopped mousse into expresso cups and put them in the fridge while I whipped up something else for my friends. 
After arriving home after my lovely visit of holding such a beautiful baby ( little Andrew had gorgeous blue eyes and such long blond hair and oh he felt so good in my arms) I checked on the mouse and found out that it wasn't such a flop as I had first thought. 
IT WAS TO DIE FOR!!!!
I won't be leaving a recipe below because I can't even remember what I did. I do know that I added 3 ounces of decaf coffee which gave a yummy flavor. 
"Mmm, Mmm, Mm"
This little lad wanted some too!!
Poor baby :(
Wishing everyone a wonderful weekend sabbath!
Love

A Week Of Heavenly Bliss

Happy November greetings everyone!
Whew, its been an exciting week and I am wishing I could have stayed on top of my blog to document it all. 
My mom flew out to OH last week and she left yesterday afternoon to see my sister Elizabeth in FL. Don't know if I can write down all of our fun, it went by SO incredibly fast and it was all heavenly bliss. 
I feel so spoiled and loved. Zane and I both were fighting over her attention all week LOL! Zane just LOVED seeing his Grammy, he got showered with so much love and kisses. Every time mom would laugh and admire him he would just burst with joy. 
His grammy brought him a lovely collection of new books to read along with a new pink pig that he sleeps with who is named Arnold (form his favorite show Kipper) and he also loves his new little owl bag that she made for him. 

Jon and I got spoiled too with all her scrumptious cooking, cleaning, bathing the baby, changing the baby, feeding the baby, baby sitting, loving on the pup (who worships her) cooking and cooking and cooking!! She also got some craft projects up and going with me that I will be posting about soon! Oh boy what a spoiled girl I am. Didn't want to share her with Elizabeth but after the week of spoiling I was afraid I might be rotten LOL!

should be back into the swing of blogging this  week,
 excited about getting super cozy for Thanksgiving!

Missing everyone!
 much love to you all
Many Blessings In Christ Jesus

Homemade Upholstered Headboard


After finishing the master bedroom I have gotten an itch to upholster our headboard. Now I am not committing myself to this project but I have taken some time into researching how to cover our headboard and I have discovered that It really doesn't seem all that complicated :)
I started looking online and got even more encouraged seeing all these lovely pictures, I also found this link that shows you how to upholster your headboard.

What got me thinking of doing this project was because I was going through CSN stores who I happen  to love and also do product reviews for. Anyways I found  that they have some lovely and yummy upholstered headboards  with free shipping.

Here are some more lovely pictures I found online courtesy of google images that got me all inspired.


Wishing everyone a glorious creative rest of the week!!
Much love
