Chocolate for Thanksgiving anyone? 18+ Only post

     When you think of Thanksgiving what do you think about?  I think about Turkey and Families getting together and enjoying themselves.  Once you go to your parents house and then to your in-laws house, it is just nice to come home and relax.  If you are like me and you have children then your day still isn't over.  So you spend what little time you have with the little ones before putting them to bed and then it is time for you and your spouse to relax and be Thankful together.  So what do you do, and do you involve Chocolate?  You do if you go to EdenFantasys and at a great price.

     I have found some wonderful items that you can purchase for yourself and your hubby or you can purchase them for gift ideas.  And they are always at really great prices.  My favorite is the Chocolates Sweet Spot Kit - vibrator kit.  The kit is regular $32.99 and on sale right now for $24.74. A saving of $8.25, Thankful now right?  The kit includes a traditional pocket rocket and bullet style vibrators that have a shimmer metallic brown color, and a bottle of chocolate flavored lotion.  They are food grade material, waterproof, and the pocket rocket and bullet are multi speeds.  Can you say Thanksgiving Dessert?

     You can check out EdenFantasys website for video reviews and written reviews.    I found that these were helpful if you are not sure on a particular item or exactly what they were for. You can also ask the manufacturer about their product or ask an expert.  You have the option of being public or as private as you like.  These are both options I cherish because maybe I don't feel comfortable about talking about everything with just everybody!  If you are looking for a great gift item for a special friend or your spouse try EdenFantasys, and rest assure you will not be disappointed!

E-Vegitarian cookbook ~Review~

     I have been given a great opportunity to review a vegetarian e-cookbook, Confessions of a Red Hot (veggie) Lover.  I must say first and foremost I am not a vegetarian but I do love my veggies!

     I used my hubby as a Guinea pig on a few of these and I must say I was surprised at his response!  He loved the Omelette's and usually he only wants an omelet with sausage or bacon in it! However he too is a big fan of his meat he was very happy with these recipes. Unfortunately my camera is broken so I can't take any pictures to share with you but I promise to upload some as soon as I can get some!

     With these recipes you really don't know that isn't any meat in them unless you prepared the meal or unless you were told.  There are great recipes for your children to help you prepare and I promise it will help you get your little ones eating more veggies!  I have a 7 and 3 year old and sometimes it is a little difficult getting them to try new things but I didn't have a lot of trouble with these!

     Confessions of a Red Hot (Veggie) Lover is available on Amazon and was released June 2011.  It is written, by Belinda Y. Hughes.  For her special diets food blog visit Belinda's page

Discalimer:   The opinions in theis post are solely the opion of mine, I did not receive any comphensation for doing this post.  I did receive a copy of "The Red Hot Veggie Lover" e-cookbook for the purpose of review only!

Is Ignorance Really Bliss?

     Being from the South you hear alot of terminology growing up that sometimes really don't make sense.  My dad always had my favorite one.  I will tell you about that one later, but first to ~Ignorance is Bliss~.

     As an adult every time I think of that old saying I have to ask myself, What? What really are they talking about?  So as I was talking to my husband, David, one day we got to talking about ignorance.  Now you have to understand that this is a man that if he ever read it, seen it, heard it, he remembers it!  However me, I can't read something and half the time tell you what I just read or what it was about.  When you think about things in certain aspects you really start to understand where, and why they came about. 

     Steve Jobs is one of the most recent, smartest men most of us know about and I have to ask myself was he REALLY happy?  If you go to google and ask the question "Why are intelligent people less happy?" you get a huge number of results.  My husband seems to be a very miserable man most of the time, I guess because he knows so much about people and things that he doesn't really get to enjoy anything.  If we watch a movie together I get quizzed on her the stars are, what else they played in, etc.  To be honest I don't care who they are or anything about them.  Do you think they care who I am or my struggles in life? NO!

     But the best southern phrase I have ever heard and to this day makes me the maddest has to be ~Did you hurt in to your Notion?~

     Ask anyone outside of my friends and family and they look at you like you are CrAzY!  However growing up if we got hurt that is what my dad would ask and if you told him no, he told you to go back and do it again!  I am 35 and my dad still enjoys that one!

     Would love to hear any comments, phrases, thoughts, or opinions you have on this post.    Life in general is so full of surprises and we have to take them day by day and sometimes those old sayings that your dad had may make you feel better.  So please if you have anything I would def. love to hear...
