Memorial day...


It is a tradition for us to go to the cemetery and place flowers on the tomb of Rachel and Grand-Ma and Grand-Pa...Rachel died of a drug related lung infection....She was 25.


Grand-Pa died of a pacemaker failure...He was 49.....Grand-ma died of a heart attack at age 80....I miss her, she was a sweet lady who loved gardening and her roses....She had an amazing Peach tree...I loved visiting her. Do you see the Utah mountains...I think they both have a great view :)
Hope you all had a great Memorial Day!
XOXO

Cover with a clean cloth...


Roll...and let cool...


Unwrap roll..
Get ice cream (chocolate here) out of the freezer , let it melt enough to be workable...Spread some on roll. do not spread when roll is hot!


Roll and place it back in Freezer...

Thursday good news

animal toy hamster in picture

Mommy the Hamster was found or should i said hunted down....Angel find her last night in the family room and hubby woke me up on time...She was not hurt....but super scared...I was afraid she would bite, but did not....She is so sweet.


I found a Dress!!!! Took me for ever!
I just had a vision of what i wanted...
I have to tell you this is my dream dress.....In France we don't have prom or anything...So this is my first dressed up event.... Except for my wedding...
I won't tell you the color...Just, that it is very dreamy, haute couture and vintage looking.

Here are my shoes, bag and my perfume i will be wearing....They won't stay this way...I am putting my twist on them...I will show you later...


The color is a neutral, it goes with everything...



The bag is a Bisou bisou (JC Penney)...I love the shape, goes well with evening...The tassel and length of the strap is not good. I will change that.



Tresor de Lancome....I have been wearing it since i am 16. One of my favorite.



Shoes...Fabulosity (JC Penney). My first job in the States was a make up artist for JC Penney...It was so much fun! I always find great things there.

Great news too! My back is doing great...I cleaned my kitchen's floor yesterday without pain....I am so happy!

Why Heifer International

Each Christmas, i donate my Christmas money to a Charity. Last year i donated to Heifer International. For me, it is very important to donate to less fortunates because even when we complain about money....The truth is....There is always worst than us.When i started blogging, i wondered how i could help others using my talents and the thought came to me to donate all my sponsor's money to heifer. 

My lovely eggs


This charity is very special to me. Last year, was my first ever experience with farm animals. I hatched my first chicks...Got bunnies....Saw my neighbors baby goats. I think that the smartest way to help others is to help them help themselves. Giving them farm animals is to give them a job....giving them eggs and milk, saving them from hunger.



Yes, this is a baby goat in my house....When the neighbor kids come over, they bring their pets. LOL



I believe that if you give away, you receive 100% more back....most of the time from strangers....
Here is the link catalog  to the animals....I donated chicks last Christmas....



If you want to donate, advertise on my blog. I will donate for you...it is also tax deductible.

Happy Karma
