Ball of Confusion

The past two weeks have been mostly a blur. Thank goodness I have tons of pictures in my phone to remind me of everything that has happened.

To start it off, Trinity was sick. Very sick. Her fever got up to 105.6. What is a momma to do?! We ended up in the ER three times. I'm sick just waiting on the bills. She ended up having to have blood drawn, a catheter to collect urine, a chest X-Ray and 4 shots over those visits. After the fever broke, she broke out in a rash from head to toe. All they told me was "probably viral." What? Seriously, all of that and that's the diagnosis?!

During those visits, I learned that there is a toilet in each ER room...and that these rooms are poorly cleaned. No, I did not use the toilet! My sister pushed the flusher thinking it was the water...and my mom promptly corrected us and said "Quit flushing the toilet!" LOL It was hilarious!

My niece Emonee turned 7! She was supposed to have a Princess Sophia themed party, but it turned into a sleepover due to rain. I made her cake (cupcake pull apart). I'm very proud of it! Especially considering my carpal tunnel was severely inflamed and Trin was very clingy and wouldn't let anyone else hold her. The inspiration came from a post I saw on Facebook and Pinterest.

All of my mother's children were in the same place. This only happens once every couple of we cherish these moments. I didn't get to hang out with everyone like I would have liked to, but we made it work as best we could.

I made a horrible recipe that I found on Pinterest. Everyone said it was simply delish when I read the reviews. Liars! It was gross.

My mailbox was totaled. The person that committed this felonious act came forward and paid restitution. He was forgiven.

And last but definitely not least, Trinity is feeling better! It's been a long week! But thank God for Jesus! Her auntie bought her these shoes, which she wasn't sure about due to the weight of them...but then she didn't want to take them off! LOL

Wishing you all Happy Trails!!

Life and its accomplishments should be celebrated. My friend retired. He left me and now I’m all alone. Not really lol, but he was surely something special to me. I imagine he will spend many days on various golf courses and he will learn new ways let his chickens entertain him. I’ll definitely stay in touch for the eggs! (Joke!)
In honor of his second retirement, we threw him a party. He protested. He did NOT want a party. He thought he didn’t want a party. I’m sure he’s as happy as a hen that he let us do it for him. He was scared no one would come, but they did! And he was overjoyed and overwhelmed with love. Aside from coordination duties, I wanted to make him a few things from my heart. I made him golf themed cupcakes, a loaded chicken salad, shrimp and black bean caviar and punch. There was a tremendous amount of food. We tend to equate love with food, so he should know just how much we care.
In his farewell speech he told a room full of people that 1. I am his soul mate (but not …

Black Panther: Movie Review

Please tell me y'all have seen the movie? If you haven't, don't read this post!

Let me give you a little bit of my back story on this Marvel Cinematic Universe. I am a Marvel fan. I don't read the comics, but the movies?! I'm here for them. Some of them are blah, but I watch them anyway. Why? Because usually they overlap and share stories. So, in preparation for the opening of Black Panther, I watched ALL of the Marvel movies in order of the stories, not the release date. I followed CNET's guide and it was pretty accurate. I did not watch the TV shows because I would still be watching. You don't have to. The movies will fill you in pretty well.

Now, for what I thought.

1. This movie was beautiful! The colors, the wardrobes, the technology, the natural hair, the beautiful black people that starred in this film, it was amazing!

2. The women. OMG. The WOMEN! The strong women in the movie inspired me. Okoye makes me want to shave my hair back off. Nakia makes …

Soup(er) Sunday!

This past Sunday I hosted a Crafty with Canon party. I won the party through House Party (I love this site!).

Initially I was planning to do a few different finger foods. Well, the temperature dropped and I wanted soup. And chili. So I made both! And my sister also made a soup that was super delicious. I used my usual go to chili recipe, except I doubled up the seasonings because I didn't have a chili seasoning pack. I think it actually tasted better! I made it in my electric pressure cooker! It was so much faster and it tasted better than it usually does. I'm in love with my pressure cooker and would like another one. Anyone have one they want to give me?

Anyway, we had fun exploring the Canon Pixma printer and printing out photos and making cute little frames! But the food was really the star of the show! I'm going to link to all of the recipes because aside from small adjustments, none of them were my own!

Broccoli and Cheese Soup.
This was a big hit! It was my first tim…
