Saturday Outfit Of The Day!

The temps dropped today so I decided to pull out my Target tall boots, Target black skinny pants and Gwynnie Bee black and orange top.

Just the perfect outfit for fall Saturday while running errands.

Halloween Cupcakes!

I made cupcakes from scratch this Halloween, using Annie's Noms recipe. To save some time, I used store bought icing and decoration.

Oh, I would like to share a tip courtesy of Annie's Nom. Remove your cupcakes ASAP from the muffin tin to avoid gummy cupcakes and liners sticking to your cupcakes!

Country Style Pork Boneless Ribs, Fingerling Potatoes, Spring Mixed Greens, Tomato Salad

I love using fresh vegetables to make a dinner extra special. We purchased Fingerling Potatoes, Cherry Tomatoes and Mixed Spring Greens from the farmers market.

They were perfect with grilled Country Pork Style Boneless Ribs! Delicious.

Outfit Of The Day ~ October 30, 2014

It's so nice to have cooler weather in Las Vegas. I just love wearing blazers. And when I partner it with a pair of Old Navy Diva bootcut jeans, IMPO kitten heels, Lands End sleeveless top and accessories I'm ready for the day!

October 2014: Volupties Underwear Subscription Has Arrived!

Volupties offers an underwear subscription service for curvy ladies, for just $12, your first month! (It’s $17/month after that) When you join, you provide your underwear size and each month you will receive 3 pairs of quality sexy underwear from well-known brands via snail mail!

PS They're delivering to Canada too!

Here's how my Volupties package arrived in the mail. The small plastic bag actually fit perfectly in our mailbox. A plus for me because I didn't have to stop by the apartment manager's office to pick it up.

This month's underwear selections are full of color and fun! Thank you Volupties for another great assortment!

#SpoonieChat Pen Pal Rocks!

I'm so glad to be part of the #SpoonieChat Pen Pals. Val sent me this fun, festive Halloween assortment of treats! Thank you Val.

Just Add A Little Hello !

I finally decided to add some color to our coat closet door with this little 'hello' yellow vinyl decal from Welcoming Walls, at Etsy! I really do love it.

Sunday In The Park

Hubby and I took a walk to our neighborhood park, Craig Road Regional Park, to do some produce shopping at the Farmers Market. We also checked out the community garden next door.

Hubby's Chocolate Chip Cookies

I just love it when my husband decided to do some baking. I just put my feet up, relax and enjoy the wonderful scent of vanilla and butter, in the air.

These chocolate chip cookies are so good. When the delivery person showed up with our dinner, we offered him a couple of cookies..he accepted! And of course, we did include a monetary tip.

Sunday Community: Couple Time

Happy Wives Club

The weekends are always a wonderful, because my husband is home! This Sunday, we put on our sneakers, grabbed some sunscreen and hats and walked to the Craig Ranch Regional Park to check out the Farmers Market!

Along the way, we stopped to see some new additions to the park, pet some dogs and chat with some bicyclists.

When we arrived at the Farmers Market, we were pleased to discover that many of the fruits and vegetables were marked 50% due to the market closing in a hour. We purchased fingerling potatoes, cherry tomatoes and Spring mixed greens.

After taking some time to rest and re-fuel, we started heading back home, snacking on delicious cherry tomatoes and holding hands!
