Lots of Food Pictures…  Apparently I’m Hungry

Bill got totally spoiled this morning when I made him a hot breakfast.  This just goes to show that miracles do happen!  Don’t get used to it, Babe!  😉 And later today at the grocery store I bought him this surprise!  When we were first married and lived in Utah, we couldn’t find Entenmann’s in […]
