Three Halloween was fun as always
Now its going to be time soon to start baking and making things for the holiday's I love Thanksgiving i think its because i get to cook a lot of food and get away with it :)
I always knew my life would be crazy but some days I just wish it would be dull and boring oh well... Back to reality.

So I can understand the craze of new things that come out now a days for kids, and how they are ALWAYS changing . But my oldest daughter Layla has taken this craze to a whole new level. She has become truly obsessed with Hello Kitty, not that its a bad thing I enjoy it as well but in moderation. No not her. She has a Hello Kitty Lava lamp, clothes, makeup, backpacks, lunch box, earrings, necklace, etc. And even the rare one that you can only get from Japan, that my father's new wife brought back with her from one of her visits.
I hope that one she understands how lucky she is to be able to have these things and I have this sad twisted feeling that she will continue this obsession for years to come.

This is truly a simple but tasty alcohol. It is made from lemon, sugar, and grain alcohol. It is a light, sweet, and easy to drink . Best served ice cold, and the Italians generally serve it after a meal as a way to help them digest their food. Now their are many ways to have this,but i will name only a few. One is by itself in a small glass, or the other way i will mention i will give you a recipe for.
- Combine 3/4 ounce vodka, 1/4 ounce cranberry juice and 1/4 ounce Caravella Limoncello.
- Pour into martini glass and garnish with a lemon wedge.

This hopefully will become the Grey Goose of the vodka world soon. Imperia vodka is a Russian vodka started in 1894, made by a company called Russian Standard. It is 40% and 80 proof, and is distilled eight times. It is a very smooth vodka, with a smooth grain flavor. This in my opinion is better then Croc, Grey Goose, Skyy, and Belvidere vodka.
