This weekend, we are having a that a word? We are staying HOME.  We have a couple of projects planned around the house and I have been asked to BAKE!

I love baking....and my hubby knows it....and he enjoys eating my treats for sure! So...I have begun my list of items that I am wanting to make.

First, I am going to make Paula Deen's Red Velvet Cupcakes...shhhhh don't tell my hubby! His favorite cake is Red this will be nice surprise.

I also want to attempt to make a Chocolate Souffle....we'll see if I can accomplish that.

I also have a list of yummy meals....Southern Fried Chicken, Pot Roast Soup, Roaster Asparagus, and Seafood Lasagna (no worries just has shrimp and scallops..) Clams make me VERY SICK.

I don't know if I will get everything I want made....but it's a start. I love being in the is such a stress reliever to me....and I love the fact that my Hubby loves my food....that makes me a very happy housewife.

The sun has been shining all day today and it is really putting me in the mood for bad more snow is on it's way tomorrow. I went home at lunch and the builders were pouring concrete for the basements ....I think they were trying to hustle and get it all done before the weather hits tomorrow.  Sure doesn't look the same already.....Poor Bella doesn't know what to think...her territory that she loved to go and sniff in is being taken over by construction workers!  I don't know what she will do once someone is actually living behind us.

Bunco night is tonight....I missed last month's get together, so should be fun to catch up with the neighborhood gals.

Anyone else ready for spring?? I have been browsing online today at spring dresses and many fun colors....I think I wear entirely too much black. (hey...they say it's slimming!)  I found a couple of dresses online at Old Navy......the maxi dress...

I is the problem...I am SHORT...let's face it..I am not getting any taller..however I JUMPED for joy when I saw that Old Navy is carrying these dresses in petite. I know I am SO SHORT (5'1) and probably not suppose to wear them (according to Stacy and Clinton of What Not To Wear)...but seriously...they look so comfy....and would be great for nights out to the movies.....or leaving the pool.....or just out hanging with friends or family....get my point??? I have added it to my cart and will make a decision this weekend.

I also found a raincoat for $15.00.....I needed one so badly last spring...and by the time I got around to shopping for one...I couldn't find one I liked. I think this one shall do the trick.

So...there you have it....I am shopping for spring....I can't take it any more!

Have you made the pot roast soup before? Let us know if it's good and maybe you could share the recipe? Just the name of it sounds delicious to me.
I have the opposite problem, making sure thing are long enough. I think I'm 5'5" or 5'5 1/2 inches and have long legs. Now my daughter is 5' on a good day. Just a peanut. I wonder what average is? Have a great weekend.
