Fast Food Lover

Good morning and happy Wednesday!  Yesterday, my husband received a package from our son & his family for his birthday.  It was a cooler that contained everything to make Portillo's famous Chicago dogs.  And by everything, I mean everything!  There was everything from the authentic beef sausage to the "radioactive" green relish, pickle spears, hot peppers, onion, tomato, special mustard and Rosen's fresh poppy seed rolls.  There was even a shaker of their famous celery salt and a server's hat, which he wore all evening.

When Steve was a kid, Portillo's was based out of a small trailer stand not far from where he grew up.  By the time he was in high school, they had moved into a building.  Steve and his friends would go there after basketball games to enjoy their 29¢ hot dogs.  Today Portillo's is all over the Midwest with about 60 restaurants.  Every time we're in the Chicago area, we have to make a stop for a Chicago dog.

So here's where the pictures I took of him yesterday are going.  In fact this is one of the new kits of mine that will be released later this week.

Steve already has plans for the other 9 hot dogs.  It's a good thing that I don't like pickles & hot peppers.  There's more for him.  Ketchup, you ask?  In the words of Dirty Harry, "No one, and I mean no one, puts ketchup on a hot dog."

Have a wonderful and blessed hot diggity dog day!

Hello again

I am back! It's been a very busy and hectic week filled with birthdays, doctors, etc, etc, etc. and no time for me to sit and write! Well, I truly believe I am back to normal now and all is in order. Even our new website is running so smoothly! I am so excited about that. By the way, have you seen the new item we added yesterday? 

It's a 3-piece set that includes a workspace table cover and two bags.  There are dragonflies, dogs, cats, flamingos and more.  Here I am with mine!

They were made by my cousin who is raising money for her foundation that works with cancer children and their families in her hometown of Merida, Venezuela.  The foundation is named after her daughter who left this world as a young lady.  Very sad.

We are donating the proceeds of all of the sales of this item to her foundation.  To see the selection, click on the "Special Items" tab at  I look forward to hearing from you.

Thanks for visiting my blog today.  Have a wonderful and blessed day!

Birthday Weekend

Good morning and happy Tuesday.  This has been a busy weekend for birthdays.  My cousin from Venezuela had hers on Friday and we all went out for a very nice dinner.  Yesterday was my grandson Andrew's birthday and we went to his favorite Mexican restaurant.  Today is my husband's & I don't know where we'll be going.  Maybe we'll stay at home and eat leftovers!

Here is Andrew last night at dinner wearing the restaurant's birthday sombrero.

Here are my cousin, me and my husband.  My husband is wearing the "Family Tradition" birthday hat which Andrew had on before they brought him the sombrero.  My cousin wore it on Friday and my husband gets to wear it again tonight!  Then it goes back onto the shelf until Carolina's birthday on the 22nd.

Here are two recent layouts of mine.  Somehow I'm going to have to combine them into one layout for the photos from last night!

Thanks for visiting my blog today.  Have a wonderful and blessed day and don't eat too much birthday cake and don't splash hot sauce on it either!
