Hello Friends and Happy Saturday!
I’m on the road again, this time heading to our Nation’s Capital for a BLMGirls DMV Blogger Meet Up.
I am super excited and can’t wait to get there!
If you too are traveling, be safe and we’ll chat next week!
Hello Friends and Happy Fri-Yay!
The days are getting shorter and school started this week so I am lining up my recipes for the Fall. Chicken is a staple in our house and this was an easy breezy “4 ingredient-less than 40 minute” recipe.
Chicken Breasts ~ Mozzarella Cheese ~ Minced Garlic ~ Fresh Spinach
Rinsed chicken breast and placed on Wax Paper
Covered with another sheet of Wax Paper and flattened with kitchen mallet
Spread minced garlic and sprinkled with a little black pepper
Layered with Spinach leaves and covered with Mozzarella Cheese
Rolled Chicken Breasts and secured with wooden toothpicks
Sprayed dish and tops of Chicken Breasts with Olive Oil Cooking Spray. Placed in preheated 350~ oven for 30 minutes and was no longer pink.
What is your favorite chicken recipe?

Hello Friends and Happy Friday Eve!
Can you believe that next week it will be Labor Day, the unofficial end of Summer – where did August go? I don’t know about you but I don’t rush to put away my summer clothes and break out the Autumn gear. I like to leisurely linger into Indian Summer by continuing to wear white jeans and sundresses.
Last year I did a few Labor Day DIY’s one of which was upcycling a Sundress into a Maxi Skirt, you can read that post HERE. Today I am wearing that Maxi Skirt with a mustard-color blouse thrifted from GW Boutique (Goodwill) and Wedge Sandals from Target.
TLP Handbag – TJ Maxx
When the weather cools, I will wear an oversized sweater with the skirt
Gold tone accessories including watch from Avon and ring from Burlington Coat Factory
Are you ready for the cooler weather of Autumn or are you like me and love the heat of the Summer?
Today I am linking up with Katherines Corner, come on over and congratulate her on reaching 10,000 followers – woohoo!

Have a fantastical day – Smooches!
Hello Friends and Happy Hump Day Wednesday!
Photography is an art that takes skill, patience and lots of practice. I truly admire and am inspired by the awesome photos some of you have taken. Being a novice and still learning the features of the Nikon P520 camera, I’ve been doing a lot of practicing.
My son and I had an appointment at the University of Delaware and while there we took these pictures at the Native Plant Teaching Garden.
According to the University of Delaware’s Cooperative Extension Program’s website – “Native Plant Teaching Garden: Designed to create an awareness of the cumulative environmental benefits that can be achieved through the use of native plants by providing an aesthetically pleasing demonstration garden easily adaptable to the home landscape. The garden consists of different niches, each planted with material appropriate for the site: a butterfly garden, bio-retention system (rain garden), meadow, foundation plantings, shrubs and paths, and perennial border.”
It was a beautiful day to be in The Teaching Garden and a great opportunity to get in a lot of practice.
With the change of seasons, I hope to get more outdoor shots including those dreaded snow days!
How do you think we did?

Hello Friends and Happy Back to School 2013!
Today my son starts his last first day back to school, entering as a HIGH SCHOOL SENIOR!!!
I watched the young kids in the neighborhood wait for the big yellow School Bus and had a lump in my throat because this is how it used to be on my son’s first day back to school…
….now as I watched him leave this morning on his last first day of school the lump in my throat reappeared but for a totally different reason.
Traveling mercies son!
Speaking of going back to school, I too will be heading back, but this time for just one day. I will be returning to the classroom to teach a Blogging 101 class on Wednesday, September 4th sponsored by The Money School of Delaware.
Here’s to a wonderful Back to School year for all of us – Smooches!
