Anyone else have a picky eater ?! Our four year old daughter Emma is going through the I only want to eat Mac n Cheese everyday for dinner. So finding healthy recipes for Mac n Cheese has been a challenge. As a busy parent I struggle and just say okay. Here is my recipe to homemade Mac-n- Cheese.
One pound smalls shells and velveeta cheese block and milk. Cook your shells to your liking mix together 2 chucks of velveeta and milk to your liking we like it extra cheesy :) Then mix it together can beat a good old Mac n cheese :) Even better with a cut up hotdog and the Mac.

Y'all today is such hard day for all of America we lost to many amazing people. As I sit here I reflect on life. I can't speak for others but Im still sad to this day thinking about all of the families who lost a loved one. Today I plan to give back to everyone I can. You never know how something so tragic can effect someone. For me I just cant imagine not having my mother, sister, brother, child, father or really any family or friend in my life. I am extremely grateful for everyone who help to keep me safe daily. So today I pray for everyone lost and I ask you to just reflect on your life. Remember how precious life is and be kind !
Today I watched my little sister Emily marry the man of her dreams. Of course the week was full of craziness leading up to the be day with Dorian scaring us. We spent the day all of us girls getting ready in my room as her wedding was done right in my back yard. Today I learned to be relax and go with it. Today I wiped many tears from my eyes as well as my sisters. I watched my sister so beautifully tell her step son how much she loved him and couldn't wait to be his other mom not to replace her but be another mommy he could always look up to. Y'all if that doesn't make you cry I don't know what else will. To Emily my sister and Bryce my new brother I wish you the world of happiness. Marriage is hard work and if you work hard you will always find comfort in your partner. Love each with all your will power and remember She is always right. I love you both here's to many years of happiness and love.
With Dorian making its way I thought this was important information . Please take the time to be ready. I know we all joke we are use to them but be safe .

We had our August Ladies Night out here in Jacksonville on the 19th at Atlantic Beach Brewing Company at Atlantic Beach. ABBC is a locally owned Brewery in town.

Make sure to check their website links below.
Susan Jones with Ruby Ribbon can out with the most amazing thing ever. She is helping women say goodbye to bras. From Anna Zornosa, CEO and Founder, Ruby RibbonI created this company because I believe in women. I believe that no woman should make a trade-off between comfort and appearance, and that clothing that fits, lifts and supports can positively impact that most beautiful of things: confidence.Today, virtually all of our business is conducted through our independent Stylists, who work their business part-time or full-time and always flexibly as they navigate lives filled with competing priorities, new challenges, burgeoning families, dreams and ideas. We are dedicated to the success of the Ruby Ribbon Independent Stylists. We hope to show in our every policy, action, and promise that we believe we succeed when SHE succeeds. And we back this intent with very specific business practices.
I believe that we can never over-state or over-explain the actions we put behind that intent, and to that end, let me outline the specific practices we follow to support our Stylists and to make their Ruby Ribbon businesses both profitable and lucrative.
Alexis Keane with Keane Captions was our amazing beautiful photographer for the evening make sure to so her some love.
