My new family member

I don't think I introduced you yet to our newest family member!

This is Murphy and he is a Pekingese that we received from a rescue organization in PA. 

 This was on our drive home, when we stopped for dinner.  He was located about three hours away.

He is the sweetest little guy and we are so pleased to have him join our family!

Have a great week!

It's time to "think pink"

I am joining Pink Saturday this week which I haven't done in like forever! 

I will be getting out my pink shorts...

... and my pink flip flops....

...because here in Western New York we are having near record warmth - about 80 for the next few days!  I know for some of you in the Southern states that would be a cool down for you but around these parts that's pretty warm for us!  I am giddy with excitement!  Yay, I get to wear my flip flops a little longer which means I can keep those boots in the back of my closet too!

Oh and since it is "Pink" October here's a friendly reminder:

It's Breast Cancer Awareness Month!  I am guessing you all know that by now, but did you have your mammogram this year?  I sure did over the summer and while it's not my favorite thing to do I am sure glad that I did.  And thankfully, I received a "clean bill of health."  I hope you do too!

Happy Pink Saturday and be sure and visit Beverly to see everyone who is participating this week!

Back in the Day Bakery and my own yummy cookies

Last month my husband and I were fortunate enough to get away after the triplets went back to college.  Of course we went to Myrtle Beach but we also took a side trip to Savannah, GA, a city I have long wanted to see.  It is charming and beautiful.  While I was there I had to visit a bakery I have read about on various blogs.  So, on the way back to MB the hubby and I stopped in for a visit (and some treats too).

It is so very quaint and decorated in wonderful, drool-worthy vintage decor!

Bad picture but I was trying to show you the beautiful chandelier!

Of course we had to sample the goodies...

We ended up with some yummy cupcakes - "old-fashioned" pictured here and a very yummy chocolate!  I meant to take a picture of the ones in the box but well I ate them before I remembered!  We also sampled their banana pudding which was amazing!  I am certainly glad we stopped by, it was worth it.

Now, for my own recently crafted cookies.  The original recipe is found at Confessions of a Cookbook Queen and is one of my favorite blogs!  These are called Triple Peanut butter Cookies and I followed the recipe exactly except....

I used semi-sweet chocolate chips instead of the peanut butter M & M's.  Don't get me wrong, I love the idea of triple peanut butter but there's just something so alluring about peanut butter and chocolate.  And, I still put in the peanut butter cups!

Just look at these babies!  They are amazing!  Thick, rich, gooey, peanut buttery, chocolately, - what's not to love!  So grab the recipe and get baking!  Oh, and you will need an icey cold glass of milk!

Happy Monday!
