Baking, being chilly, and a sale

Hello bloggers. I hope everyone is having a great weekend!

With the holidays coming up I  have been baking.


I love turning on the oven and warming up the kitchen. 
I don't do much of that in the summer.


Snickerdoodles. Probably my most favorite cookie. I always add cloves to most of my cookies. I love the smell and the taste!

Arizona has finally got in to the chilly morning weather. I finally pulled my sweater out.


Warming up nice in the day and starting out nice and chilly.

I think that 70's is my favorite temp.

I know some of you are right smack in the middle of winter,

I have been a busy gal with orders from ETSY and from my facebook page.


So from now until November 29th you can use the above code in my ETSY shop. If you prefer to visit my facebook page, the coupon is valid there too.



Have a great weekend everyone!

I see snowmen

This morning I woke up extra early.
It is cooling off a little here in Arizona and I was a little chilly.

I believe we are going to be in the 40s for lows this week and let me tell you,
for this Arizona native that is chilly!


I created this little guy over the weekend. I think he really likes his long nose.

Seems my craft room is filled with Snowman right now.


Look at this cute lil guy. He really is adorable with his loooong scarf.


Both are available in my ETSY shop. 

If you are a follower of my facebook page today is the day I will pick the winner of this ornie




Hope everyone has a great Sunday!

Week 2 check in and my mini pumpkin

Here we are at the end of week 2.

Well..how did I do.
Well I did 1 day of intentional exercise. It hurt.

Then the day we went hiking was about 2 hours and let me tell you it took a few days to recover.
Even hubby was worn out.


sometimes this is how I feel on this journey. Like I am on this path alone.

I have no umph to get up and exercise. I mean duh..that's how I got this way.

But I have the Lord, you all, and the fitness group!  So I am going to keep pressing on.

Positives I learned, reached this week.
1. I can hike a trail and enjoy doing it!
2. Going up and down the stairs in my condo helps alot!
3. I have less heart burn from eating better!
4. Prayer is a place I love to be in. My Lord gives me strength.
5. After the hurt is gone...I can breath so much better!

So what am I doing this week. Week 3??
I have carved out time to exercise and I am not going to miss it!
No matter what!
I will share next week!!!!!

I few weeks ago me and MJ visited a shop and I have to show you what I picked up.
