It's a sweet life!

Not that I'm not busy, because I really am, but out of boredom I got out my Epicure 12 cup multi pot (I LOVE THIS POT!)  and poured in about 1 1/2 cups of sugar a big egg size of butter and a bit of water...  boiled it till it started to brown; removed from the heat and added about 1/4c or so of whipping cream.  That's right. Caramel sauce.  What's it for???  My coffee.  It's so good!  If the kids were not sleeping I would be whipping some of the cream and topping the coffee with that and some more sauce drizzled on top and maybe some vanilla sugar too!  OH YEAH.  I'm that bad! 

I was looking over old photos of my babies from a few years ago on one of our trips to Dryden.  OMG... how they have grown.  From little babies to these boys I now have running me mad all day long!  I'm so proud of them!  These are from 2 summers ago. Oldest was 2 1/2 and my baby was just 1.

I'm all caught up on my crochet items!  Just doing some odds and ends for the restaurant logo, and then one other premade logo to do & a birth announcement and I am caught up! :)  Which is good because I finally got a CREDIT CARD!  I have had one in the past, but never renewed it because I never used it.  Now that I'm a SAHM, I cant get one, unless I get my husband to co-sign for me.  Boo.  Until my good friend directed me to Capital One where they guarantee you one.  They are sending it out and then I will find out my pre approved credit limit!  I'm excited!  I am finally opening a store on Etsy where I will have my Logo designs, photo cards, crocheted items, flowers and a couple other special things that I don't offer right now!  Hopefully it all goes well and I make some money off it!

In celebration of that and my pending 7 year anniversary, this week I will be starting a giveaway for a 'winners choice' of a selection of items/services.  If you have any idea's for the giveaway, leave a comment here!  If you win my giveaway there just might be a little extra something for you with your prize!

Anyway, off to enjoy another cup of my caramel coffee before I go to bed!   Good night!
