Mome reads Mommy, My daughter's way to spell it when she was younger... It stuck. My son calls me Mome... just like it looks. I now sign all my notes to them "Love, Mome". It's our inside secret and makes them smile. I always want them to smile.

To My Babies... Happy Valentines Day

Dear Precious Children of Mine,

You are my heart and soul.  The reason I breathe and wake up every morning.  You are everything I ever dreamed of and so much more.

You are my mini me.  You are smart, witty and quick tongued.  You are all boy, rugged and tough, but still have a sensitive side when no one else is looking.   You say what's on your mind with little filter and I appreciate that... even when it hurts.  You are intelligent enough to spell out the "bad" words even though your sister has no clue.  You know what words you've heard should not be repeated and still know how to use them for effect.  Sorry I taught you that.  You have the ability to be GREAT at anything you put your mind and focus to.  I hope you know that you are the person that made me a mom and I couldn't love you more for that.  You are everything I hoped and dreamed for in a little boy and my heart gets bigger every day I get to share with you.

Puddin Pop~You are the little girl I always dreamed of.  You bring out a girly side I never knew I had.  You make me appreciate all things girly and enjoy finding new ways to share in your happiness for all things "girl". You bring a smile to the face of everyone you meet.  You are generous and giving and very soft hearted.  You are also tough and witty, creative and dramatic.  I love your spirit and the ability to cheer anyone up.  You make me smile every day and my heart also grows each day I have with you.

I love you both and with you my life is complete.

Thank You for Being You,


Not necessarily meant in this context but this is totally how I feel about both of you right now.

Valentines with VnC "The Kiss"

Oh My!

I was sent this tasty treat from Briana @ EFG.  Thanks Lady.  It was packaged in that pretty box with pink bow.  Inside were decorative packing ribbon and iridescent hearts.  It screamed Valentines.

It was also AMAZING.

This Pomegranate Cosmo is perfectly made.  I have a habit of over pouring the liquor when mixing drinks.  This comes fully made so there's no room for error.  You just chill, pour and ENJOY!.  I invited my neighbor over to sample this Cosmo with me and we both determined it to be one of the best drinks we've had.  It's 14%  alcohol by volume so just slightly stronger than my normal glass of wine.  It's fruity, but not too much so, and was a nice change to our normal wine sipping.

VnC cocktails are the brainchild or entrepreneur Shane McKillen who was tired of spending all his time mixing drinks at parties.  He created VnC in 2007.  All the ready-to-serve cocktails contain 100% natural fruit juice and NO preservatives.  They are made with 13.9% New Zealand Vodka or Premium Tequila and are all 150 calories or less per serving.

Whether celebrating Valentines Day, a special occasion, or just to get together with friends.  Let VnC do the work,   You can spend your time enjoying the company.   There's something for everyone and your guests will enjoy your company as much as they love the drinks you're serving.
