Random acts for Wednesday

All week they were saying that today was going to be the coldest day in South Florida in "years", I was super excited, I love a few cold days here and there, or so I thought. When Hubby left this morning (I'm off today), he said he turned the heat on, it wasn't! When I woke up, which wasn't easy getting out of bed on a morning like this, I went straight to the thermostat and it read "60" degrees, in my house! What! After about an hour of trying to put the heat on, I got it, now it reads "75" degrees, that's what I'm talking about. We are having a hot summer day in my house today!

I am going to adventure out at some point today because I got this great coat at J. Crew back in September and haven't been able to wear it, so I'm going to take advantage of the opportunity, I might freeze but at least I look good.

But mine is in sea foam white.

I had ordered a new cookbook for my BFF and I (were domestic divas in training) and I got them yesterday and thought I would try a recipe from the book, it didn't look the way it was intended to but it was good. I showed hubby a picture of what it was suppose to look like and then mine, he it ate it all the well. I don't usually buy cookbooks for many reasons 1) you can find everything online 2) I have so many cookbooks from my grandmother, southern baptist churches publish the best cookbooks. But my new cookbook is full of easy (or so I thought) ideas, it has tips on entertaining, full of beautiful pictures of food.

Katie Lee Joel, yes, she is Billy Joel's wife. She is from West Virginia and writes about times when she was younger cooking with her grandparents (dear to my heart), I'll let you know how my next try goes.

I didn't know, but I heard about Baby Harper and have been captured about by this story. Kelly went in to the hospital with a normal pregnancy but when Harper was born she had breathing problems and they had to intubate her and transfer her to another hospital, every day she seems to be getting a little better, I really hope she had a good night last night. I have been praying so hard for Harper and her family. I was talking with my BFF and my hubby last night, at the AMAZING support they have. I showed my husband Kelly's page and all the comments she has received, I have only been blogging for a couple of weeks but I was very proud to be in such good company and be surrounded by such loving, caring people.

There are a few giveaways over at Preppy Southern Princess and Well that's just Fabulous, some really great giveaways and great blogs, check it out!

By the way, I still don't know about you Gretchen!

Hope everyone has a Wonderful Wednesday and stays warm!


  1. did you see the domino with katie lee on the cover? it was so good and her house is wonderful.

    When I read about Kelly and Harper I cried. I couldn't help it. God must hear all the prayers in honor of this family.

  2. Harper's story made me cry too, but my heart sings eat time Kelly writes that she received another message saying someone accepted Jesus as their Saviour after reading her blog. Think he works in mysterious was or what?
