Missing you....

I miss her.

My Mom was me at least.

she was...

* Smart *

* loving *

* stubborn *

* loved to throw a party for any reason *

* a true friend *

* could swing a hammer *

* sewing anything *

* not a great cook but a good basic cook *

* loved puzzles *

* loved to play games *

* artistic *

* education was extremely important to her *

* loved her family with all her heart *

Love you....

Cupcake Wars

I am a Food Network, TLC, HGTV and DIY Network junkie!
Are You?

Last week our family watched "Cupcake Wars" on the Food Network to see our local bakery compete for the $10,000 prize and the title of "Cupcake Wars Champion"!

(really bad picture, sorry!)

Cupcake Charlie's

They are the BEST cupcakes I have ever had! 

They made it to the final two...
but didn't win... :-(
It was not based on taste but on how the cupcakes were presented.....


 If you can catch the replay of the episode I highly recommend it!

Soooo if you are ever visiting Plymouth, MA.

 Make sure to first visit....

Plymouth Rock
(It is hidden inside the portico)

Then visit....

The Mayflower II

(Because it is really amazing to see how SMALL the ship was that crossed the Atlantic Ocean and hear the story of the Pilgrims voyage)

Finally take a short walk and end at Cupcake Charlie's for one of these....
