Today I will plan a dinner for ten – dead or alive. Explain why the ten are invited and share what dinner will be served! Invite List 1. Myself, of course. This one, I believe to be self explanatory! 😉 2. Alan Alda – Alan is a writer, director and loved actor. He is currently living. I adore him most for his starring role in the TV Series, M*A*S*H (a series about a Mobile Army Surgical hospital during the Korean… Read more »

Humor! What a joke! But really, I enjoy laughing. Anyone from grade school through high school could tell you times of me literally rolling on the floor in laughter. Picture the old man laughing in Mary Poppins. I grew out of that…and hardly find myself falling on the floor in laughter anymore. Although I do laugh pretty hard at times – to the point of happy tears streaming down my face (such a good feeling). Humor has also turned into… Read more »

I started in a class of, I believe, 18 kids at St. Joseph Academy in Adrian, Michigan. It was here that I met, Olivia. A dear friend who I still keep in touch with. We were inseparable for several years. It was here that I also recited The Children’s Hour by memory, was an active member of the Siena Heights University choir and where I learned to love going to the library and artwork. In fourth grade, I moved onto… Read more »

Family Birthday Celebration 5

Birthdays have never been crazy important in my opinion. Sure maybe a nice dinner and a dessert of sorts – a family get together…but never anything crazy. Today, I’m going to go ahead and share some of my favorite birthday memories. 1. One year…no idea which one, as I was so young. We traveled to my Aunts house for my birthday. She always seemed to be able to bake the most delicious bread. For this special occasion, she baked my… Read more »

The Book of Awesome Cover Courtesy of Google Images

As a kid, I would receive one of the Scholastic Reader Order forms from my Elementary teachers and I’d go through and circle everything I wanted to read…it was almost always the entire form… silly me. And one of my first experiences with a library was taking a book out…and when my Grandma asked for me to return it…I just put it back on the shelf. It was all good and well till a few weeks later the library called… Read more »

The Definition… Before I dive into what I’m grateful for, I want to start with the definition of gratitude. Gratitude is “a feeling of appreciation or thanks.” – Merriam Webster Dictionary A feeling of appreciation or thanks to a neighbor, a friend, family member or even to a stranger. It’s that feeling of calmness and reminder that you’re (I’m) okay because…well you at least have something to be grateful for.   What I’m Grateful For… I could likely go on… Read more »

German Pancakes

Growing up, I was a huge fan of pancakes (cue, copious amounts of Mrs. Buttersworth’s syrup). Although this is a bit of a comfort food today, my taste-buds have expanded. In today’s world, I find myself shying away from syrup and preferring Preserves or Fruit or maybe even just a little brown sugar…yumm! So, I give you German Pancakes. This recipe originally stemmed from my Sister who found it somewhere online. The cool thing about German Pancakes is you can… Read more »

Today’s topic? Movies! Classic movies! If you keep up with My Life In Snippets, you know that I feel (along with many others) that I came from another era… In fact, my sister has said before that I’m a mix of 25 and 95 – an old soul. I grew up listening to music that my parents loved as young-in’s (back in the fifties and early sixties). The movies I watched were all based during this era – or back… Read more »

I can in no way, shape or form claim the recipe as it came to me via the wonderful world of Pinterest! I was scrolling through one day when I came upon a post from Pinch of Yum…after looking through her site, I stumbled upon these, made them almost instantly (after collecting the… Read more »

Questions Image

And we’re back with round six (and seven) of questions! That’s right folks, get ready for double the insight, intrigue and overall fun 🙂   1. Would you rather lose all of your old memories, or never be able to make new ones? Of course, the questions are just getting tougher and tougher, eh? Talk of losing memories reminds me of “The Giver.” I’d hate to live in a place where my memories were controlled… anyway… So, here’s my logic… Read more »

Beating the Heat -- Courtesy Upsplash

Here we are with Foodie Friday tailored to the Beating the Heat Summer Series here at My Life In Snippets. Eating the right foods in the summer is vital to staying cool. During the late fall and winter time, my stomach frequently longs for comfort foods like baked potatoes, soups and heavy meals. However, in the summer time, it’s better to keep meals light and on the cool side. I posted in a prior piece that during the summer you… Read more »
