you mean it’s possible to love a cookbook that doesn’t have any dessert recipes?

I was at Target the other day & I wandered over to the book section. Glancing about their featured book display, I paused on the cookbooks. There was one dedicated to recipes you can make with kids {most of which were desserts and other sweet treats – how could I resist, right?}, and I seriouslyContinue Reading

After carrying a screaming Miss Boo out of the wedding fashion show, my mom & I took the girls to her friend’s house. Her friend’s daughter’s beauty pageant crown was in the living room, and Miss Boo made a beeline for it!Continue Reading

Recently, I have implemented meal planning and Once a Month Cooking [OAMC] to help with that stress load. However, I find that most of the meals I have prepared and frozen just won’t work forContinue Reading

a weekend away means a lot to do on monday.

Well, there goes daily. I named this blog a daily dose of sugar, hoping the name would help me feel obliged to post at least every day Monday thru Friday. Well, Friday, I did post, but I pulled it. Then… We took a little road trip this weekend to see family & stuff. On Saturday,Continue Reading

a historical bridal fashion show to remember.

The Historical Society in my hometown was hosting a tea & historical bridal show, where they were featuring bridal dresses throughout the decades.
