Veterans Day

recipe can be found here

Veterans Day is a celebration to honor America's veterans for their patriotism, love of country, and willingness to serve and sacrifice for the common good. It is also celebrated as Armistice Day or Remembrance Day in other parts of the world, falling on November 11, the anniversary of the signing of the Armistice that ended World War I.

I am looking forward to spending the day with my little boys, who don't have preschool/school today. They love to hang out together:



In addition to thinking about our veterans, we'll be doing mundane things like getting haircuts and getting our eyes dilated. Don't I look awesome? Cheers to that look!


after having my eyes dilated, sporting disposable sunglasses given by the optometrist

Lecia, about the cookies on my post yesterday, yes you can order online. They also have their own website beside the Etsy site. I'm actually going to suggest to my employer this morning that we give these out for company gifts to some of her clients, because the company even has gift boxes. Oh dear they way I going on and on you think I worked for them. LOL...

Enjoy your day my friend with your little angels. I think you look beautiful by the way in the photo posted. smile...

Cheers to that look, for sure! I am bummed because today is not a holiday for schoolkids here. Maybe because they were just off for Election Day?
