Today, the day of ALL days! It’s my best friend!
My name is Chérie.
I am the first born of the first born namesake of Phyllis
And I am the first born grandchild of Phyllis and the late, great LeRoy
I loved cooking with my grandma. She taught me her famous fried cabbage, red beans and rice, and an Egg-in-a-Nest. Oohs, aaahs, smiles and “YESSS!” affirmations filled the room.
I loved that she taught me how to bake grandpa’s favorite Pinapple Upside Down Cake
Growing up, my grandma walked around the house talking to herself. “What did you say, Grandma?”, I would say. “Nothing. It’s just Spanish…” , she would say and continue talking to herself.
I wanted to know what she was saying! So, when I was in high school I decided to take a Spanish class.
The first thing I wanted to learn how to say was hello to my grandma. Because she was my grandma!
One day, I called her and surprised her. “¡Hola Mi Abuela!”
(There was a gasp for air…) “¡HOLA MI NIETA BONITA! ¿COMÓ ESTÁ?!……”
And she was ‘off to the races’ they say.
“Woah, woah! Slow down grandma! I’m just learning!” , I said.
My grandma could not stop laughing. ( I could feel her smiling through the phone).
From that day, my grandma promised me to only speak Spanish to her.😄
We would never say goodbye. We would always end our conversations with “I love you.”
So, the next thing I wanted to learn was how to say was ‘I love you ‘ to my grandma. Because she was my grandma.
As I choked back tears…¡TE AMO MUCHO MI ABUELA! ¡TE AMO MUCHO!
That was my speech when my grandmother passed. She turned 92 on May 23rd and she passed on the 30th.
I drew these roses when I was young. By the new cursive handwriting , I was young! 😛

A week long affair…

My grandpa alwa had #ButterscotchCandy growing up! The funerals service set out a bowl of butterscotch candy without even knowing that information! #GrandpaWasThere

Thank you to #EVERYONE
🎵 Loving you
Is some kind of wonderful
Because you’ve shown me
Just how much you care
You’ve given me the thrill of a lifetime
And made me believe you’ve got more thrills to spare, oh

“So, how did it go?!” The day after a Date Night. A girlfriend would say to me.
“Noooo!”, they would say. “Yes!”, I would say. “No!” “Yes, it did!” I felt like I was playing pinball. Silence. Then, we would both laugh. One of my friends said “You have to write this stuff down….”
By yours truly!😉
Sooooooo, here’s a sneak peak…..
Mama said. Mama said. Mama said. Mama said a lot when I was growing up. When it came to opposite sex, she said “Men come in flavors. Chocolate and vanilla.”

Last year on my business trip to North Carolina, #ILoveYou, I had the pleasure of meeting Buddy and wife, Leah. When our meal was served, we began to chat about food. And when dessert was served, we, of course, began to chat about dessert. Specifically, #Cake 😉
Buddy said he had the best pound cake recipe. I was all ears. The next morning, Buddy handed me a typed recipe for COLD OVEN POUND CAKE 😍
Share this day with me 😀
Or, please share your favorite pound cake recipe!
Today is THE DAY!
It all started three days ago…
From my girl, Suzie
I walk into the store and stand in aaah. “You can’t walk in here from working out and eating that?!” I hear a man’s voice behind me say. Snaps me right out of my aaah moment. I turn around and see a man laughing while looking at another man in workout clothes standing in between him and I eating a free sample of cake. Workout man smiled. ” I can eat whatever I want. It’s Fat Boy Friday for me.” I can’t help but laugh out loud.
I like the way he thinks! FatBoyFriday 😄
Sooooo, I’m gonna say “For Me! Friday”
Don’t mind if I do!!!
The same to you!
