When pondering on what to name my blog.... I thought & thought.... and the color yellow came to me!! A dear friend that has gone to be with the Lord (the color yellow that reminds US of her beautiful and bright smile) gave me the inspiration for the theme . In memory of a wonderful friend.

"My-My Key Lime Pie"

This past weekend the Hubby and I went to Brewton for the weekend. We enjoyed a wonderful Auburn Themed "Tailgate & Celebrate" engagement party for our friends Jeff & Kim. I was so disappointed that I didn't take any pictures, but we were just having too much fun catching up with our friends and the details of the wedding!

This weekend was very relaxing for us. . . .  We enjoyed spending the weekend at THE CABIN!! J.Jay's parents have built this quant little cabin on their land and I absolutely love spending the weekend there. Who can complain when you walk in and all your dreams come true and you have some how morphed into the Restoration Hardware/Pottery Barn magazine. . . . It is a vacation home at home. . . . I guess the new saying for that is "STAY-CATION." Next time we visit I will be sure to take pictures!!!

Sunday, after Church we enjoyed a delicious home cooked southern meal and to top it off with a
KEY LIME CAKE!!!  I have never really cared for Key Lime flavored deserts, but this is one that is a must. 

Key Lime Cake
Ingredients for Cake:
1 (18.25 ounce) package lemon cake mix
1 1/3 cups vegetable oil
4 eggs
1 (3 ounce) package lime flavored gelatin mix
3/4 cup orange juice

Ingredients for Icing:
1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese
3 tablespoons  fresh lime juice
4 cups confectioners' sugar
you can use Cool-Whip

1. Combine  cake mix, gelatin mix, oil eggs and orange juice. Pour into three 8 inch cake pans (or any other cake pan that you prefer). Bake according to instructions on box. Allow to cool, then frost
2. To make the frosting: In a large bowl, beat the butter and cream cheese until light and fluffy. Add lime juice and confectioners sugar. Mix well.

****my mother-in-law served this cake cold***** must I say it made it even more delicious because it was so hot out side :)


New Vision. . . . . Let me know what you think!

So as I was reading and reading and did I mention reading ALL afternoon ONE BLOG. . . . . I stumbled across this picture and it is exactly what I have been imagining. This is most certainly going to the top of my TO HAVE LIST!

I have the perfect spot for this. . . . on the wall near our breakfast bistro table accented with black and white damask seat cushions. . . . . .  can't you just imagine it!

ERASE: the red wall, the mirror and other decor & you have "THE" piece of furniture

It was one last time that all of us friends could spend with our dear friend BRITTANY....
