Rainbows and Clovers~St. Patrick’s Day Ideas

rainbows and clovers st. patricks day ideas

In my evaluation at the beginning of the year, I realized I don’t have as much holiday content on my site. I LOVE decorating and baking for holidays, I just don’t always come up with original ideas. Though I JUST shared some St. Patricks Day Lunch Jokes! So I thought I’d gather some ideas from around the web with what I’d like to do for my family for St. Patricks Day with Rainbows and Clovers.… Continue Reading

Christmas Holiday Fashion: Red Lipstick and Ankle Boots

Christmas Holiday Fashion

I am a big believer in wearing red and green to Christmas gatherings. It’s just against my own personal moral code  not to. I’ve thrown in black, gold, or silver with just a touch of red or green sometimes, but you will never see me wear teal, orange, pink, or even turquoise to a Christmas event–even though I love those colors. I am LOVING the trend of hot pink and turquoise at Christmas, I even… Continue Reading

At first I was bummed about that, but then I got on my Pinterest July 4th page and decided I just need to make the best of it.  I then got excited about the mellow day ahead.… Continue Reading

This was from our church Fall Festival last Saturday, they’ll look this same tonight;) For myself, I got just 2 accessories to make my costume, can’t decide if I’m a kitty cat or a cheetah. I like cheetah. It is easy and fun! Now for a… Continue Reading

Christmas fun at the Duke home

Christmas family

Christmas Eve It was pouring rain nearly all day on Christmas Eve.  We had a breakfast party at our neighbors home, got to be Secret Santa’s to a less fortunate family, last minute grocery store run, & then we went to see another neighbor sing a solo at her church’s service. My youngest fell asleep on the drive home (5:30 p.m.) and I could not wake her up for a good hour after that.  We… Continue Reading
