Welcome to our party! 
Wow, the summer is moving along so fast! I am amazed at all the back-to-school promotions on and the many bts posts, as well! Of course, I love the posts :) 

Hey, before we get into our popular posts from last week, I want to say a heartfelt "thank you" and "we'll miss you" to two of our cohosts, Kristen of Musings of an Average Mom and Nicole/Susan of Flavors by Four. They have had some life-changes that are making it necessary to refocus. For now,  they will have to bow out of co-hosting our party. This is their last week with us. 
Please show them lots of love

Yes, we will still be on 16 fabulous blogs...next week we will introduce you to our two NEW cohosts!

So, what did you all like best last week?

Now, usually I pick just one post to highlight but this week I was compelled to do more! There were so many great treasures that got less attention than they probably should have so I decided to select THREE spectacular favorites of mine. Enjoy!

Brownie Bite Sundae and FOTW August

It's that time of the month...Fly On The Wall. This is when you get to have a peek into my life, home and job. The craziness and laughs will keep you coming back!

Prepare a basic brownie, I added walnuts to the mix
Allow to cool and cut into 16 small bars. Take 1 bar and cut into bite size pieces.
Place those pieces on a plate and place a large scoop of Salted Caramel Truffle ice cream.
Place a dollop of cool whip, ready whip or fresh cream on top.
Drizzle that with caramel and chocolate

Man...my granddaughter, LMSP, lost her first tooth! She will be 5 in October. She was so excited, running all around showing her gap and telling us she got "FUH IVE DOLL ERS" for her tooth. She has this Southern twang that is hysterical.
LOOK My future grandbaby! The size of a plum right now! I was blessed to see the baby bump last weekend and my youngest son. It was wonderful. It had also been 18 months WAY too long for a momma to go without seeing her son!

My friend said:  My little sisters used to sing "I've got two chickens with parasites" instead of "two tickets to paradise" LMAO

While at the wedding... things you've never heard before:
"hold'er up so she don't fall over"
"hot dang, the swamp dog mascot is here!"
"is the pig here yet"

The wedding party walking out to "all about that bass" and "Lynard Skynard" just to name a few. Each couple in the wedding party had a different song. We really enjoyed ourselves and the heat wasn't totally awful plus we had a breeze. Here I am goofing off with the bride (my adopted daughter)

I'm driving this guy home and he says, "so you married?"
I'm thinking here we go again... "no"
He says "why not, what's wrong with you?"
I'm insulted, I said "there's nothing wrong with me, it was him. Been there done that"
He said "oh, yeah it's hard work and takes 2"
Me: "yes very true"
He says "don't worry, you're young, nice looking, a little heavy but still pretty, you'll find someone"
Me: "Gee thanks, a back handed compliment. But for your information, I have a boyfriend"
He says: "hahaha so how old are you anyway?"
Me: "Old enough to know better. I'll be 50 my next birthday"
He says: "WHAT, 50? Man you look GOOD and real young"
Me: "thanks"

You've read about John, the old flirt on the senior route, here he is helping Ms A, she's 96! We all laughed so hard about his "bag" matching his pants! LOL They are such fun.

One of my favorite passengers is Ms. Nellie, every time I drop her off she tells me I'm her favorite and number one driver, she also says "I loves you and I knows you always got my back" Well last week I dropped her off and she looks at me, "I'm gonna tell you like my grandchillins tells me, you my number 1 boon coon" I about fell out of the bus laughing! I said I've been called a lot of things but "boon coon" is NOT one of them. LOL

Taking S to the dentist and he ask " can you come inside and hold my hand"
No I have other passengers to pick up
S: can you go to my house tonight and hold my hand
No. I have a boyfriend
Oh...okay says S
Then he tells me to have fun on the 15th at my daughters wedding and ask "did you buy a new dress"
Yes I did
S: I bet you'll look great
Me: I don't know, probably more like a blue whale
S: I like you just like you are, I think you're perfect
Me: You've been in the sun too long let's get you inside because you're delirious
LOL these men!

I'm taking Mr K home and when I arrived at dialysis I said "HEY big flirt"
Mr K: hey hey that's right you know me "BIG"
Me: I said big FLIRT
Mr K: but you said big
Me: right, FLIRT nothing else
Mr K: I'm still big
Me: okay we're not starting that today
he just grins at me...I don't wear perfume so it much be my deodorant that attracts these men, or my sweat!

My work ride, depending on which one I drive it holds 8 passengers and 2 wheelchairs or 2 chairs and 10 or 16 passengers. It's 20 ft long and the lift is in the back. Pretty sweet ride, right?

Mr K: look at this hand, see how black it is?
Me: yes why
Mr K: it's so black that when I eat tootsie rolls I wear gloves so I don't bite my fingers off
Me: ROTFL you are NOT right Mr K! Oh my gosh, crazy man
Mr K: all right sweetheart see ya next week

Just a peek into my life...now go see what everyone else has been up to!

Mocha Cashew Bowl CIC

Coffee and Cashews? Yeah, I saw these two ingredients and my brain locked up. After some time I began to come up with about a dozen different options. One problem, well several, but the biggest being my mom hates for me to cook at her house and then time...when to get it done.

So I racked my brain over something to fix that did NOT require cooking or baking. I came up with this "bowl" a great snack or breakfast option.
 I thought about coffee cakes, biscotti, cashew crusted steak with a coffee rub ,  or even a dark chocolate coffee gelato with cashews, this is sort of close to the last idea.

Mocha Cashew Bowl 1 frozen banana
2 TBSP cashew milk
1 TBSP instant coffee crystals
1 TBSP chocolate syrup (you could use cocoa or carob)
Blend these 3 ingredients until smooth, place in the freezer to set for approximately 15 minutes.
Top with chopped cashews, shredded coconut, granola and sliced bananas or whatever other fruit you have on hand.

Be sure to check out the other bloggers great creations as well!!
