Layout to Share

Just thought I would share a recently completed layout.
This is Gabe after riding the Tower of Terror at MGM in Disney World.
He was very hesitant to ride it, but once he did, he was so proud!

Yes, I am growling...  :)

Matters of the Heart

Happy Valentine's Day!!
I hope you are enjoying those that you love the most!
I especially had a day dedicated to the heart...I had a checkup appt. with my cardiologist today.
He doesn't need to see me again for a whole year!!!
Normally, I am on 6 month checkups, but he thinks I am doing so good that he has put me on the yearly schedule.  My heart is extra happy (and healthy) today!
In honor of Valentine's Day, I am going to share a layout with me and my sweetie on it!
Trisha from Sketch Inspiration was so gracious, and asked me to complete a layout to showcase using one of her amazing sketches!
Wow, that girl has talent!
Sketch Inspiration posts new sketches every Sunday, and if you play along, you could win the prize of the week!
You must check it out!

My BBQ Pork Recipe

I wish I had a photo to share of this is so good and so very easy.
I make the BBQ Sauce recipe below, pour it over a pork loin roast in the crockpot, and cook it for 6-8 hours. 
We eat it as sandwiches, or you could put in in some tortillas with veggies.  You can adjust the BBQ sauce recipe depending on how big of a roast you use.  Let me know if you give it a try!

Barbecue sauce:

1 cup catsup
1/2 cup vinegar
1/2 cup water
1 sm. onion (1/2 cup)
3 teaspoons of brown sugar
3 teaspoons of worcestershire sauce
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper
