What's New?

School is officially beginning the wind down process for us.

Four more weeks left! This has been the absolute best year!

Of course, I can't wait to stay home and Poof the Pillows.

This girl's house is sorely neglected right now!

Just wanted to pass the word that Lynn over at 


is having a Celebrity Cook Along on May 15th.
This month the idea is to cook something delicious inspired by Ms. Paula Deen!

You know how I love her. I'm going to participate. Will you?

I am looking forward to you getting out of school too! I miss you doing the school year.

The cook along sounds like fun, but I am trying to stay away from butter, butter and more butter. I love Paula's cooking, but it doesn't love my waistline!
Hugs,
Penny

Stacey,
I'm so glad that you have had a great school year! I'm sure you are ready for a little R&R right about now!
This cook along sounds fun. We all love Paula Deen!

Well hello..I am glad you are still around, I've missed you! I will go check it out, thanks and I look forward to hearing more from you! ;D

Just a little something from Judy said...

I love Paula Deen and her recipes. Thanks for letting us know about the contest.

It is so good to hear teachers praising their students. When that happens it almost always those same students will praise their teacher. I am sure it would be the case with you, especially if food and studies go together.

Glad you will soon have some stay at home time. Just looove Paula Deen, so I'm heading over to visit Lynn and find out about this cook along. Sounds fun.

Glad you had a great year! I know you are looking forward to some "poofing" time! I've just been trying to get my garden planted with all this crazy wind and weather.

Have a Happy Mother's Day!!

Stacy, Jelly jars are a great idea for holding little bouquets.I'm sure your friends will be thrilled. I'm definitely going to participate in the Paula Deen "cook off" at Lynn's. Paula is one of my favorite chefs/cooks.
Thanks for stopping by with a sweet comment and letting me know about the fun at Lynn's,
Babs

Hi Stacey! I'm so glad you've had a great time teaching! Now I'm lazy and won't do any cooking but I'm sure going to be copying some recipes! :)
Thanks for popping in to see me.
Be a sweetie,

I know that you will get the home back in shape in no time. I do not work every day. I work two days a week... big difference.

I think I will need to make something Paula Deen!!! You have inspired me.

Stacey, it was nice to see that you stopped by Southern Lagniappe, and I appreciate your taking the time to let me know.

I hope this finds your son doing well after his tonsillectomy. I can imagine how upsetting it was to have to go back to the hospital after coming home.

Best wishes to you for happy and fun "end-of-school" days. I know you are looking forward to spending the summer in your beautiful yard.

Lisa said...

Stacey,
Hope you had a wonderful Mother's Day!

Stacey,

I hope the last few weeks of school are really wonderful. I know my children are faunching at the bit to be finished. Have a wonderful spring and enjoying fluffing the house and garden once you're finished.~~Dee

Oh that sounds like fun! My son and I love watching her show.

Hmm, what might I cook...

Hi Stacey,
I just noticed your Paula Deen posting on the recipes. I went on a cruise to Alaska with Paula Deen, Michael and all the family in 2008. I love Paula, too! I will be posting some photos from this cruise this week... Have a great day. xoxo Kim
