make new friends, but keep the old

make new friends but keep the old,
one is silver and the other gold.
like a circle has no end,
you and me will always be friends.

This Girl Scout's song has been playing through my brain for the past 24 hours after having Cara over for muffins yesterday...she and I met randomly (or maybe not so randomly) in a coffee shop months ago and in that time she got married so we had a little coffee date at my house to catch up. Those good ole Girl Scout days always help me but things back in perspective. Especially when there are Samoas or Thin Mints involved.

Speaking of goodies, I made muffins for us and have a new little baking secret to share. I know Sandra Lee is the queen of semi-home made but I will give it my best.

Here it is: you start with a box of muffin mix, for me it was apple cinnamon

here's where the "homemade part comes in":
mix oats, brown sugar, flour, butter and a little cinnamon and christen the top of the muffins, bake & voila! your very own homemade feeling, yet from a box, muffins:


  1. First very good song from the girl scouts, second I love how you can make friends anywhere, third the muffins look good and I am hungry:)

  2. the muffins were truly delicious my dear. There is something very sweet and very divine in sisterhood. It seems that sisters, no matter what kind, have this ability to step into a sisterhood at any walk of life under almost any circumstance. I am so thankful for the cafe' that day- that was a great "circumstance".

  3. Just wanted to thank you for listing me in your bloglines. : )
