Happy Homemaker Monday 01.09.17


Good Morning!! We are back at school today.  The break was nice. As the break was winding down, I was having a kinda gloomy day.  But that was the day I received an awesome surprise in the mail.  I had been talking with my BFF over the holidays, catching up and then reminiscing in light of the news of George Michael’s passing.  Her sister took her and I to see Wham! in concert.  We grew up together, at first living right across the street from each other.  She did mention to me to watch the mail, I had no idea what she was going to send me.  But when it came, I could not believe it!!  Totally made my day!!  See the pic below in FAVORITE PIC FROM THE CAMERA

Linking-up with Sandra at Diary of a Stay at Home Mom.







Chicken Bacon Alfredo Bread Boat from cookingpanda.com

This looks quick, easy AND delicious!! Definitely want to try this!!

Find the recipe and video here



I was able to attend the Adult Coloring Café, and it was really nice.  There was a Keurig coffee maker setup with assorted cups for us to make something warm to drink.  We are also able to bring our own snacks if we want.  Music was playing quietly, and I tell you what, it could have been my Pandora station playing, a lot of my favorite songs came on.  There were single pictures to color that were printed on nice heavier stock paper.  The tables had colored pencils and markers to work with.  I chose a Mandela design, and was able to complete it.

I started another one that I will take back with me next month to finish.  I sat with two ladies who came together, and we chatted some, colored, and enjoyed the music; a very relaxing, friendly atmosphere.



I’ve seen this several times, makes me smile every time 😀  That bear is just adorable!!

  1. Love it-Big George Michael & Wham fan here. I was so lucky I was able to see Wham and George in concert, so very sad especially knowing the re release of LWP and him getting back into the limelight in the works.

    • Hi Sandra!! Yes, I will be trying this recipe soon, it’s got bacon, can’t go wrong with that, lol. Yes, coloring has always been relaxing for me, and these adult designs are so much better than the minion coloring book my youngest son had bought for me 😀


  3. Hey Babes!

    I LOVE your new shirt!! That’s so awesome and how thoughtful of your friend. It’s still hard to believe how many folks we’ve lost this year. I watched the little tribute to Carrie Fisher and her mom Debbie on the Golden Globes last night and it made me so 😦

    That recipe does look so yummy and so easy! And such a great way to make other favorite flavor combos into a fun meal. I really think I need to put this one in our rotation!

    And I want to be coloring with my blogging Bestie while we chat and listen to music!! ::sigh:: Why you gotta live so far away anyways? 🙂

    Blessings on your week ahead and back to school! xoxo

    • Yes!! Coloring with my blogging bestie while we sip hot cocoa, as the snow falls, now that would be living the life!! 😀 Hope you have a great week too hon!! Hope school runs smoother this semester so I can get back to blogging and writing!!


  4. The coloring cafe sounds like such fun! I work for our local library and we had an adult coloring club for a while, but it kind of fizzled out. Hmm… maybe I should add coffee and snacks and try it again! Have a great week!

  5. It’s always fun to get surprises in the mail (as long as they aren’t bills 😉 ) isn’t it? I love the idea of an adult coloring cafe, what a great concept. Hope you have a wonderful week!
