2016 New Year and Blog Hopping Fun!

Happy New Year Friends! This is what I'm currently doing on the first day of the year...

Listening to my washer spin as I blog away, I do not know why, but hubby woke up EARLY this morning and is doing laundry!

Loving CROSSFIT, exactly a month ago my sister took me with her to a free class and needless to say I fell in love with crossfit, Dear yoga, I will come back.... I promise!

Thinking... I am a thinker, always thinking, and this morning I woke up thinking about this upcoming year. My plans, my hubby's plans, our kids, we all have dreams, wishes, ideas, and thinking about how it will all roll out! Praying and Expecting a fruitful and happy year!

Wanting, Biscochos!!! No one made biscochos for Christmas this year and I have been craving them since then. I pulled up a recipe from online yesterday and they came out OK, they look pretty... taste, not what i was expecting, but still good. Check them out in my IG account here, I had so much fun baking them with my 4 year old daughter! "Mommy, it's like playing with play-doh!" Those are the moments I truly live for!

Needing COFFEE!! I thrive on Coffee, and it's still brewing. I love how it makes my kitchen smell. Now only if coffee tasted the way it smelled :)

One little word: LOVE, love God, love myself, love my family, love my job, and love those around me!  This is what keeps me grounded and rooted. Something we all need, especially in today's  society!

    1. Happy New Year Lorraine, loving the coffee IV idea..... I can drink coffee all day, even at night right before bed and still go to sleep. That Caramel Brûlée sounds good, I've never had one! Getting one today for sure! ;)

  3. I am not a big coffee drinker, but oh how I love the smell! It does leave a perfect aroma in a house. Thanks for sharing. I enjoyed reading your currently.

    1. Thank you Kate! :) Happy New Year!

  6. I'm so happy that my husband does laundry too! Isn't it wonderful?!?
    Loved your IG post about baking with your little girl! I had to look up biscochos because I wasn't sure what they were - and now I totally need to bake some! They look SO YUMMY!
    LOVE your word LOVE!!! It truly does make the world go 'round! Happy New Year!

    1. Hi Pamela, it is amazing when hubby's help! This past week I made a meme with Kim Kardashian's crying face about how no one in the family made biscochos for Christmas and my mother in law sent me a link to a recipe! LOL!! So, I decided to try it, they had the flavor, but not the texture. Biscochos are so good if they are made just right! Happy New Year! :)
