My fellow Texas blogger, Lauren over at Lauren from Texas asked for some nomilicious recipes a week or so ago via twitter. Luckily, the above recipe is SO easy that you can almost deliver it in the infamous 140 characters or less so I sent it over to her as quickly as I could. I like to make mine with white chocolate but you can use whatever you’d like!
Head over to her blog to see how they turned out and get other yummy recipes just in time for the holidays.
It seems like I’m always saying that “I just can’t believe people now days” or mentioning my growing lack of faith in society. I may or may not have also been a little Scroogey this year to top it off. Spoiler Alert: I have been. But just when you think you’ve figured it out you get a sweet message on your Facebook from a retired soldier in New Jersey. No, really.
During my first semester of college at Southeastern Louisiana University I strategically scheduled my kinesiology early in the morning with a super long break until the rest of my classes. This way I could roll onto campus in my pjs, shower after class and head to the Union for lunch. Obviously the go-getter attitude employers are expecting.
We didn’t have co-ed showers and since our classes were so early we rarely locked our lockers. I had actually locked mine on this specific day. After getting out of swim class (I know, I know. Go-getter to the max) we noticed that our locks had been cut and everyone’s lockers were open. I was a waitress at the time (insert cliche’ here) and had a decent amount of cash that was stolen along with my checkbook (A Precious Moment’s checkbook to be exact) and my jewelry. In my jewelry that was thieved was my class ring. That was the last day I saw it…………….until yesterday.
On my way to Houston last weekend I got a message on Facebook from a gentleman who told me that he bought a bag of used jewelry and there was a class ring inside with my name on it. Thank the Lord that I
have had a unique first and last name and he was able to find me on Facebook with my highschool & full name. Thanks technology.
When I replied to inform him that it was in fact me I also told him that it was stolen from me almost 11 years ago. I thought I would never see that thing again. Ironically, I was just telling Paul a few weeks ago that I wanted to order one from the same company and keep to give to our kids. Well, this kind man sent me back my long lost ring along with a little note that stated:
“Enjoy this ring once again. Happy Birthday & Happy Holidays.”
Um, hello faith in society. Welcome back.
So if you’re feeling a little hum-buggish this year just know that there actually ARE some decent people out there. Maybe only in New Jersey, but they’re out there.
A sneak peak at our little photo session this weekend. Our lovely friend Mrs. Cassidy did us the favor of shooting. We had two great locations and I’m pretty pleased with them.
