How absolutely precious is our little cowgirl, Izzy! That is so sweet. Congrats on the weight loss (I need to do that!) Thank God for all the other blessings you listed, too. Your family is amazing!

Love, Betty

Hi Annie,

I haven’t been to your blog for a while… computer dumped all of my saved bookmarks! πŸ™ Bad computer, bad computer! πŸ™‚ I love the photo of Isabelle….she’s so cute toothless! I love that stage πŸ™‚

Your recipe sounds wonderful! I’m going to have to make that this weekend… I have a busy weekend, and that sounds perfect!….hopefully I can find hominy (last time I looked for it the store I was at didn’t have any), if not, I’ll use corn (I know, it’s not the same, but it will work)
