Pretty, Funny, Happy, Real (Feb 9, 2012)

It's been awhile since I've joined up with Like Mother, Like Daughter for their Pretty, Funny, Happy, Real.

Here's my Pretty:  the beautiful couple's rosary that I won from Melanie at The Rosary Chick  Isn't it amazing!  I won it from her blogiversary - I think.  She made it in our wedding colors of burgandy and green.  The best part?  My husband sat with the family while we were doing our decade of the rosary the other night.  We don't do it every night, yet, but we do get it in at least 4 days a week.

Here is my Funny:   Bug was on picture duty and figured out she could take pictures of herself.  Wish I hadn't deleted all those pictures of the floor and her toes...

On to the Happy:  Big wooden rainbows make me happy.  They obviously make the girls happy, too!

Now, here is some Real, as in Real tasty, Real fun, and Real satisfying:  This past weekend, we made our first batch of homemade sausage - sweet Italian, and we smoked the Canadian bacon that had been curing for a week in the fridge.  Oh my, this could become addictive


  1. Wow that sausage making looks ambitious but I am sure it is worth the effort. The rosary really is beautiful!

    1. It actually didn't take that long and my Dad had all the stuff, so my only investment was in the TenderQuick for curing and the sausage casing. It's easy, but I also have a meat science degree - but it's still easy.

  2. That wooden thing is wild - never saw one!


Please feel free to comment. We all learn from each other and I would like to learn from you!

Comments will be posted as soon as possible. I've been getting hit with a lot of spam, so I need to watch what is going on the blog. Thanks for understanding.
