For Us Girl's Only Rated PG

Here's the deal... Look up or get out mom's or grandma's recipe { after all think about it.. It worked for her} of anything made with pumpkin... These are the scents men love to have wafting through the house. Probably reminds them of being cozy and cared-for at home... This is a scientific fact my friends... It works! They'll love it... { Well at least till you tell them you purchased something new} and they'll never know what hit them!!!!
If you as me are on a budget or just need something special for a gift or a extra little tag for a gift... why not give a personal coupon such as one of the following ideas or one of you own.....
*** This coupon good for a warm drink and conversation....

***This coupon good for a fabulous breakfast in bed......

***This coupon guarantees 5 kisses.....

***This coupon good for a home cooked dinner for two.....

***This coupon good for one massage { guaranteed to curl your toes}....

Starting to get the idea? With all the ladies and your altered art talent the possibilities are endless......

Today's post is a fun one and set aside special to take a break from decorating...
Here also is a great recipe for the holidays or just a ordinary day the will blow your socks off....

2 large cans sweet potatoes or yams
1 cup walnuts { chopped}
1 stick butter
1 1/2 cup brown sugar
8 oz. can chunk pineapple
{ If you think you need a few more calories you can always melt and brown marshmallows over top before serving}
Place sweet potatoes or yams in casserole dish to accommodate the ingredients... after spraying with cooking spray for easy cleaning... Pour pineapple and juice over potatoes or yams... Sprinkle with the walnuts ... then cubed butter... and brown sugar...Cover with foil and bake in oven at least a hour or till mixture has candied...Bake uncovered for a few minutes and add the marshmallows if desired...
Watch the smiles with the first bite... Yummmm......

Ladies I have shared some ways with you today to make life joyful and fun and to place a smile on your favorite guys faces.... Enjoy life and enjoy the little pleasures.... Have a wonderful day...

As always your words of wisdom are fabulous! What a wonderful post:). I love anything flavored with pumpkin and I have been using pumpkin scented candles the last few weeks to bring that homey feel to each day!

Blessings,

What a fun post!
My husband doesn't actually care for pumpkin, but loves my vanilla pound cake!
I just might use some of these coupon ideas as my budget is very strict this year.
The sweet potato recipe sounds scrumptious~
