Are You a Phubber?

What is a Phubber? Someone guilty of Phubbing!


See that woman with her cell phone during brunch? 
She's a PHUBBER!

I knew ignoring people by engaging with your cell phone was a thang, but I had no idea it was a "disease" or actually had a name.

I follow a chiropractor who healed his mom of cancer, Dr. Josh Axe. He published an article today about this very phenomenon. In said article, he discusses the Dangers and the Five Telltale Signs of Phubbing. Very interesting and thought provoking article. You can read it here.

Take a minute to leave me a comment. Let me know if you have this disease or this is just hogwash!

I'm still standing

Hello lovelies! I couldn't let this week get by without saying "Hi!". I'm still standing.
though I'm
Sifted and
I created the picture from the words that ran through my being this evening. And ministered to my heart. I've been on repeat of those steps for some time now. I feel I'm in a continual rinse and spin cycle. I can't wait for God to hang me out to dry. To enjoy the sunshine, the relaxation of the breeze, the gentle sway rocking me to sleep like a baby, the vast expanse of the great outdoors, the smell of freshness in my nostrils, the freedom of knowing this chapter is finished. 

Revelation 3:7-8 And to the angel of the church in Philadelphia write; These things saith he that is holy, he that is true, he that hath the key of David, he that openeth, and no man shutteth; and shutteth , and no man openeth; I know thy works: behold, I have set before thee an open door, and no man can shut it: for thou hast a little strength, and hast kept my word, and hast not denied my name.
I'll share my journey soon but for now
I bid you adieu.
May God bless and keep you as he does me and mine.

American Cancer Society Fundraiser Idea: Pamper Your Princess

acs fundraiser

The Chicken Creek Cancer Crushers held their annual American Cancer Society (ACS) Fundraiser this past Saturday, February 17, 2018. The event, Pamper Your Princess, is an exciting and successful fundraiser in our close-knit small hometown. A close friend of mine became passionately involved with the ACS after she lost her husband to the disease. Pamper Your Princess may be the idea you've been searching for to help support a cause dear to your heart.
  • Tickets are prepared and sold prior to the event. Each ticket designates an appointment time for your princess to be pampered. Your fundraising committee should decide ticket price prior to advertising your event.

  • The event is advertised by word-of-mouth and facebook. A facebook event is used to invite and communicate to participants.

  • Princesses are pampered by getting their hair styled, nails painted, dressed up in a gown and having their pictures taken. Princesses range from toddlers to teenagers!

Doritos Chicken Casserole

chicken casserole
Doritos Chicken Casserole
Take my word for it. The Doritos Chicken Casserole is yummy! A dear friend gave me this recipe 30+ years ago. Yes! I am still making it. Yes! My family still loves the delicious creamy taste of cheese and mushroom soup paired with the unique taste of Doritos. Click the link above or click here for the recipe. You won't be disappointed.

As usual, I made a few substitutions to the recipe. They are listed below:
  1. I bake my chicken for 15-20 minutes seasoned with Pampered Chef Southwest Seasoning
  2. I use Progresso Mushroom soup (gluten free)
  3. I omit the Cream of Chicken (because it contains gluten)
  4. I prefer Sharp Cheddar instead of Velveeta
  5. I bake it in my beautiful Pampered Chef Rockcrok Everyday Pan
Please! Leave me a comment. I want to know how you like the recipe for Doritos Chicken Casserole.

Organize your Pantry for under $10

Y'all! My pantry is like my pantie drawer and my refrigerator! There's just a few things I keep secret. Strictly off-limits to anyone other than my IMMEDIATE family. If you've ever wondered why my pantry has a door, it's to keep people out! Same goes for my fridge. If you're thirsty, tell ME! Please don't go opening up my refrigerator door to help yourself or you may get really embarrassed if I get embarrassed by you seeing my lack of cleanliness. Shew! Now you know the rules if you're ever at my house. But right now....I'll proudly take you to my pantry so you can have a look around!
Unorganized pantry
Can you relate? Does this look like your pantry? This is my actual pantry. Before. Before you organize our pantry for under $10!

BEFORE I organized my canned goods, snacks, sauces & seasonings, plastic wraps & baggies and everything else that gets thrown into the pantry. Things kept going missing in my pantry. I went to the grocery store, packed my pantry and when I needed something I couldn't find it. One of my problems was disorganization. Another problem is flat-edged shelving. My trash can resides in my pantry. Stuff, being multiple things at once, kept getting knocked off the shelves into the trash!

Others must suffer the same problems; stuff falling or getting knocked onto the floor because most pantry shelves are just like mine.  LIP-LESS!
lipless shelves
My goal during the Christmas Holidays 2017 was to organize my pantry to save money:
  • save money from throwing away so many expired groceries
  • save money from dropping so many groceries in the trash without realizing it
  • save money from being able to see the stuff in my pantry and use it
  • save money by minimizing my grocery list after taking a quick scan of my pantry, and
  • be proud and unashamed of my pantry
A quick trip to the Dollar Tree yielded exactly what I needed. Plastic containers for $1 each. I bought seven of them thinking I may need more but I didn't. I didn't put everything in my pantry in a container, just the stuff that needed some shelf-sitting assistance. This is my pantry now...
The is the "after 3-weeks" picture. Booyah! Still looking great!

Not the Chesterfield Inn. Actually my house. I got tired editing photos! lol

An added side note....Notice this handy dandy wrap organizer I bought in 2013. Psssst, I'm still using it! That's a good thing. Click the link below to get yours on Amazon for only $12.87 and free shipping with Prime. Thanks! I receive a small commission if you buy from my link.

Leave me a comment or better yet a picture and let me see your pantry, unless of course, it's sacred or you're scared!

Less frazzled and more flattered about my pantry,
