Over The Moon Linky Party

Welcome to Over The Moon Link Party

The heat continues but I escaped to Vermont. Now I am cold. High today is 60 and last night was 39. That is a big difference but it feels good for while I am here. I am baby sitting for my grand children while their parents are in Banff, Alberta Canada. They needed a vacation and my daughter-in-law has a conference there so it all worked out. I get to spoil them for 8 whole days. Isn't that what grandma's are for?



Easy Halloween Treat Bags

Cute Halloween Treat Bags!

I am always looking for cute ideas for Halloween treat bags. We have an annual Halloween party on our street and we dress up and have all kinds of food and then we all gather on our golf carts to go trick n' treating. 

I wanted to make some cute treat bags but not spend lots of money.  I had some burlap left over from another project so I decided to make these cuties.

On the Road to Retirement!

On the Road to Retirement!

The last few months have been crazy to say the least. It all started at the end of June. We purchased another house. One week after that we were on a 5 week vacation. Once we got back, it was time to do some work on the house we bought.

Wonderful Wednesday Blog Hop

Welcome to Wonderful Wednesday Blog Hop!

 Fall is here and so many wonderful fall recipes, DIY and decor are being posted. I am so jealous, since it is still hot here and I am having a hard time getting in the fall spirit. Hopefully soon.

Welcome to the Wonderful Wednesday Blog Hop
Oh my goodness, fall has arrived! It is official and you can certainly see it in the sky. Night comes earlier, much earlier. And, the fall decor and pumpkin recipes abound. Take a look at our features and see ... two of our most viewed posts were fall table decor and we have a delicious pumpkin recipe, too!

You're The Star - Home Feature Week

You're The Star - Home Feature Week

It's official - fall has started. I just wish that someone told Florida that fall has arrived.  :)
Way too hot here for this time of year. It could be worse, but cooler weather would be nice.

Pork Tenderloin with Dijon Wine Sauce

Pork Tenderloin with Dijon Wine Sauce

Pork Tenderloin with Dijon Wine Sauce

Our schedule has been so crazy lately so dinner is usually thrown together, so I wanted to make something better but still easy.  I found a recipe for a pork tenderloin but it called for Marsala wine and I didn't have any so I used  a white wine instead for the sauce. 

You coat the tenderloin with Dijon mustard and then browned it before baking it in the oven.

Well, the heat continues here in southern Florida. They said it should be warm like this for another month. It is so hard to get into the fall spirit. So far I have put out a fall welcome mat at the front door. It's a start :)

Wonderful Wednesday Blog Hop

I hope your week is off to a great start. We are still having very warm temps here in southern Florida and the heat index is in the 3 digits. It seems as though this warm weather will never break. 
Once again I hope that all of our friends in the Carolinas are safe. Glad the rain has stopped by flooding is still such a dangerous situation. My prayers are with you.

You're The Star - Family Feature Week

Welcome to Family Feature Week here at You're The star.  I just wanted to say that I hope all of your friends in the Carolinas are safe. My prayers are with you. This has been such a devastating hurricane with all of the rain it has deposited. (Although no hurricane is good)

Welcome to week#3 of the September "You're the Star" Blog Hop!
Before we continue onto the Linky party I wanted to share this post from my blog:

I love seeing all of the fall/Halloween decorations, however with the temperatures in Florida hovering around 92 and heat index of 102, it is hard to get into the spirit. So I thought I would share a post from last year - Halloween Books.

Welcome to Over The Moon Link Party

Although it is unbearably hot here in Florida, it can't compare to the devastation that Florence has brought to the Carolinas. My prayers are with you and hope that you are safe. These storms are never easy.

You're The Star - Creative Feature Week

Welcome to Creative Feature Week here at You're The Star

It's September 10th and the peak of hurricane season. With Gordon bringing rain to the north and Florence due to hit by the end of the week, it seems to be right on target. This time last year Erma was hitting southern Florida and we went to Georgia to escape. Crazy September!

Yummy Chicken Salad

Yummy Chicken Salad

When we go camping, I love to make things that are yummy and yet don't take lots of prep time.  This week I decided to make chicken salad. I could cook the chicken before we left and mix it up and then we could have it over the weekend.

Happy Sunday! Hope you are enjoying your day. Still some rain here in southern Florida but still warm. I see up north the weather took a deep dive today, but rain. My sister was thrilled with the lower temps, but not the rain. Hope you are enjoying lovely September weather.

Welcome to Thursday Favorite Things!

Here we are in September! Usually by now, the weather is starting to cool down, but as far as I can tell, it is confused. My family lives in Pittsburgh, PA and their temps are higher than here in southern Florida. Have you cooled down or are you having hot temps?

You're The Star - Garden Feature Week

Happy Labor Day!! Hope you are enjoying your weekend. We were camping this weekend and having a great time until the rain started. It stopped, but is supposed to get heavier tomorrow morning, so we decided to come home tonight so we would not have to pack up in the rain. That is definately no fun!
