{Hello Beautiful Friday}

Hip, Hip, Hooray! It's Friday!!

Ava & Aunt La~La at the beach

Super glad to have a slower schedule this weekend. Not much going on. Matt is helping a friend move out of town, cookout with Matt's family (Kayleigh & I are attending without him) and I'm pretty sure I decided to organize either the kitchen pantry or our's a toss up =)

On a yummy note...I found a FABULOUS recipe:

Grape Salad
Prep Time 15 Minutes
Difficulty Easy
Servings 6

4 ounces, weight Cream Cheese (can Substitute Low-fat Too!)
4 ounces, weight Sour Cream (low-fat Works Here, Too!)
¼ cups Granulated White Sugar
1 teaspoon Vanilla
2 pounds Seedless Grapes (Red, Green, Or A Combination Of Both!)
¼ cups Chopped Nuts (Pecans, Walnuts, Etc.)
¼ cups Brown Sugar

Preparation Instructions
Mix softened cream cheese, sour cream, white sugar, and vanilla together.
Wash and de-stem grapes; place in a glass bowl.
Toss cream cheese mixture over grapes.
Top with chopped nuts and brown sugar.
Chill salad in the refrigerator until ready to serve. Enjoy!

{So this is the beginning...}

I'm not quite sure why I created this blog (maybe it was my dear friend that prompted me, {thank you Jenn})...& to be quite honest I'm not even sure if I'll have the time to keep it up. I'm not even sure what to tell you to may simply be a blog for my rants, raves, recipes, fantastic deals, DIY stuff {which I believe I have a secret passion for}, or pictures of my beautiful family and other random things. But nonetheless, I have begun!
