Christmas Cuties
Ok so I said we weren't going to do an Advent with Lil' Hunkie but I just haven't been able to get it out of my mind...probably means we need to do it!  And I love this version...very creative!

Simply beautiful!!


For The Home
Love the embellishments added to this!!

For The Heart
Act Of Kindness by Miss Maggie's Place
This is awesome!! Jennifer and her family paid an overdue visit to an adopted Grandmother living in a nursing home.  A lot of the elderly living in nursing homes are overlooked and it makes holidays tough....I know this because my mother is a ward clerk at a nursing home and just last Thursday was telling us that they had 2 residents having a hard time.  So I was glad to read about Jennifer's act of kindness!  Bravo!

Easiest Fudge Ever!



Happy Thanksgiving Lovelies!!  
Sharing one of my favorite Holiday Recipes for Monday's Special Christmas Soiree theme today.  Can't wait to see what you'll be sharing!!
A friend shared this recipe with me a couple years ago and I loved how easy it was!  And you can also change it up a bit and make different flavor combinations.  

Easiest Fudge Ever
Ingredients:
One tub of prepared icing.
One package of chocolate chips.
Optional: nuts.



Make it:
Melt chips in microwave for one minute.  Then cook at 30 second increments till melted.
Add tub of icing, stir.


Next add nuts.


Spread in a  lightly buttered square baking dish.  Chill in fridge for about 30 minutes to set. 


Cut and enjoy!!

How easy was that?!

Praying you and yours have the best Thanksgiving ever!!  And since it's Thanksgiving and I'm cooking/baking all day today, shopping with my sis tomorrow and going to the in laws overnight I'm taking a break!
On Monday we'll start the Christmas season off right with the Special Christmas Soiree and with this amazing deal.......
