Fred and Wilma!!!

Can you believe he dressed up?!?! And it was actually his idea!! I think he just wanted to be able to carry around the club!!
Soo the two new recipes were good...I would say, try the BLT dip for sure, maybe pass on the cheese ball!! :)

Merry Christmas to me!!!

So what if it's October?!?! I go the most AMAZING Christmas present last week!! I was in Younkers (for those of you in the South, it's like Dillards) I was checking out the Fiesta display, just like I always do...and guess what I saw out of the corner of my eye?!?!

Christmas lights Fiesta!! I had seen the pattern last summer on a clearance shelf shoved behind a bunch of other plates...there were only two bowls in the pattern and at the time I thought, what am I gonna do with two bowls?!?! And it was summer, so Christmas wasn't exactly on my mind! Anyway, I have regretted not getting them ever since!! I was for sure I would never see the pattern again, much less this much of it!! I grabbed up the Bread Tray and a mug (we don't use the mugs, but I wanted one to put silverware in if I ever do a buffet style meal) then I noticed all the plates!!!

I took a deep breath, pulled out my phone, took a picture of one of the plates, sent it to my Momma, waited ever so patiently until I knew she had received it, then called her!!! She was just as excited as I knew she would be...she was aware of the passed up bowls and how I thought I would never find the pattern again! Like any good Momma, she immediately said get them, they can be a Christmas present from me and Daddy (thanks Daddy..hehe)!! We went back and forth over how many to get and finally decided on 8...My table only seats 4, so this seemed logical..ha!

And the best part is... I can have them now!! No waiting! They are actually luncheon style plates, so they are just a bit smaller than all the plates I have, so they look super cute together!

Love the red and green...but I can use any color since the lights are all the colors of Fiesta that I collect!!

Now I just need to plan a party :)

Thanks so much Momma and Daddy!!! LOVE IT!!! And now you wont have to pay to ship them to Iowa after Christmas..hahaha!!

I have no clue if any other department store carries them, so if you don't have a Younkers, maybe you should start a petition or something..hehe!

Halloween Happy!!!

First of all, for those of you who are unaware....a "happy" is basically a fun little can be anything that puts a smile on someones face! I'm not sure if a "happy" is a Southern thing or not, but it in every place I've lived since moving from the South, nobody has ever known what a "happy" is...well now you know!! :)

Anyway...I got a happy today!!! Another popcorn bucket from my Momma and Daddy!! I have been getting them regularly since I wrote this post last Halloween,
I guess she just needed reminding!! hehe!!

Well this particular bucket is very different from all the has seven different flavors!!
White Cheddar, S'Mores, Cheese, Caramel, JalapeƱo, Chocolate Drizzled Caramel, and Halloween Kettle corn tinted orange and black!!

I tried to wait until The Farmer gets home to try it, but I just couldn't, the temptation was just too great!! I tore open the Chocolate Drizzled Caramel and let me tell you, it is amazing!!! YUMMO!!! I am actually going to wait to open the others, but I'm sure they will be just as good!!!
Thanks so much for my happy Momma and Daddy!!! :)
Today was our first day of snow for the season....ughhhh!! This can't be starting already!!
