Hello everyone…I hope everyone had a lovely weekend….Thank you all for your lovely comments about the new layout of my blog as this came as a huge surprise to me too. Friday afternoon I received a few messages from friends telling me that they were unable to see my blog, so I looked into and saw a pop up message that said “We will be back at the end of the day” Thank you! I was like what in the world is this now..:( I contacted WordPress support and they told me that it was the plugin I added that is causing the problem, I thought to myself with only 1 plugin I already have issues?? WP support was really very helpful they told me to deactivate the plugin and all would be fine.
About 1/2 hr. later I went back to check my blog and OMG that’s when I saw the new layout. I was shocked! at first I thought it was someone else’s blog, but after looking at it for a while I thought to myself, wait a second who is the only person who has access to my blog??? oh!!! I know who my good friend MINA!!…I sent her a message asking her if she was doing something and she responded with “Damn girl,,don’t look” (hahhhahah that was so funny)….this was suppose to be a surprise and so I closed the blog and did not go back to it until later that afternoon. 🙂
Mina is a web designer and a very very busy lady, she found time when I first thought about starting a blog to help me out, she set up my WP account and has been there whenever I needed help (even though she tells me sometimes that she is not)… wanted to surprise me with the new layout. 🙂 She is such a sweet person, we met when I first moved to the area she was walking her adorable little dog Lucky, and I back then had my other basset hound Frankie (which I still miss so much he passed away 2 yrs ago). Mina called me later that afternoon and told me that she is still working on it 🙂 I am still overwhelmed with the new layout, and I just love it she knew exactly what kind of changes I wanted to make.
What can I say except that I thank her so very very much for all the work she has put into my blog and that I do love her so very much!!! THANK YOU MINAAAAAA!!!! 🙂
The recipe I have posted today is quite simple a little bit of veggies accompanied with meat. 🙂 I was watching my favorite chef the other day and saw this recipe which I thought was a great idea and so I gave it a try and just loved. I was only going to do the baked beans but my husband wanted me to add the hamburgers but if you are not a meat eater you can bake the green beans the same way and get that delicious smokey taste. 🙂
