Hey there!
Hi! I'm Billie Jo, a wife to one and mother to four who loves all things home and family. During the day I homeschool, do laundry, and drink way excessive amounts of coffee. I would much rather read than exercise, and I am blessed to live the life I dreamed of.

Monday Morning

It is Monday morning. The fireplace is on, adding warmth to our cozy livingroom. The washing machine is humming away, and a new week begins. Today we will do our schooling, change the bedsheets, make a good dinner of turkey loin with steamed veggies, and watch the first episode of The Holiday Baking Championship on Food Network. Yay! 

Are you tired of my leaf pictures yet???












How about some of Peyton's Candy Bar Brownies??

If you want to use up some of that Halloween candy, simply chop up some of the candy bars and add them to your favorite brownie mix. Peyton only uses Ghirardelli Chocolate Supreme, and she adds an extra egg.


Guess what else we have been up to?
Wedding planning!
This past weekend we visited the reception venue for food tasting and planning.
So much fun!

Have a cozy week, my friends!
Thanks for visiting.
