National Martini Day! Cheers!

In honor of National Martini Day I have cooked up something extra special and serving up some fun wearing my fun, new apron that I created for the dish that doesn’t cook, but still likes the dressing! 😉 You can get your very own by clicking the apron link below. I hope you enjoy the video ~ and the apron! ~ Cheers! Sunny xo

P.S. I have lots of other fun products available featuring the same design so make sure to browse around while you’re shopping at my Zazzle boutique:) Thank you so much, Sunny!

SUNny DAY Post: X-Mas In July…….in August!

It’s that time of year again! Actually, it was that time of year again last month for our annual X-Mas in July “Epic Southern Living Magazine Christmas Cake Baking Party!” However, this year one of my nieces couldn’t make it for any dates in July so we moved it to August.

Despite the heat, outside and in the kitchen inside, we had so much fun that a tradition was born.

(We will see how long that lasts! 😉 Anyway, we spent the day visiting an American Village and stayed for the amazing fireworks display and it made me feel perfectly patriotic and, as always, proud to be an American and blessed with our freedoms– thanks to all those who serve and have served, and fight the good fight. I’m talking patriotism – not politics- here:)
