Today is THE Day!

Today, my first baby
is getting married!

I know....

What am I doing here???

Had a little time...


for the cake...

for the bride and her attendants to arrive...

So I figured I'd take the opportunity
to finally post a couple pictures 
from her shower.

Sorry it took so long!
The set-up
My Baby!

My & my girl!

Both my babies! Aren't they beautiful!

I will post some pictures of the wedding after things calm down.
Time to go get dressed!

Have a blessed day!

Why Did I Wait So Long???

I have always wanted to make
my own jam
but I've been too afraid...

of what?

Messing up, I guess.

So yesterday, my friend, Suzanne,
sent me a link to a blog called

A very inspiring site for us Happy Homemaker wanna-be's!
With lots of recipes and helpful hints!

That blog led me to another blog:

which has all kinds of recipes and helps
for canning and preserving all kinds of stuff.
This is where I found the recipe for

She made it sound sooo easy,
so I thought I'd give it a try!
Washed my jars
Mashed my blueberries - the most tedious and time consuming part of the whole thing!
Mixed berries with no-cook pectin and sugar for 3 minutes!
And it was done!!!
Couldn't be much easier than that!
I really have no idea why I waited so long to try this!
But you can bet that I will be making
my own freezer jam more often now!

Do you can???
Do you have any simple recipes to share
with this canning newbie???

Hope you are having a great weekend!
