Auld Lang Syne

Start practicing...
tomorrow is the big day...

Auld Lang Syne Lyrics
English Version

Should old acquaintance be forgot,
and never brought to mind ?
Should old acquaintance be forgot,
and old lang syne ?

For auld lang syne, my dear,
for auld lang syne,
we'll take a cup of kindness yet,
for auld lang syne.


And surely you’ll buy your pint cup !
and surely I’ll buy mine !
And we'll take a cup o’ kindness yet,
for auld lang syne.

We two have run about the slopes,
and picked the daisies fine ;
But we’ve wandered many a weary foot,
since auld lang syne.

We two have paddled in the stream,
from morning sun till dine ;
But seas between us broad have roared
since auld lang syne.

And there’s a hand my trusty friend !
And give us a hand o’ thine !
And we’ll take a right good-will draught,
for auld lang syne.


OK, so I must admit...
I just sing the chorus!
But I thought you'd find the 
whole shebang interesting.

Cheers to 2012!!!

A Sensible New Year Idea

As the new year approaches I start thinking about th
"grown up stuff" that I should be, need to be and ought to be doing. 

I recently stumbled upon this on Pinterest and I thought it was interesting!

Yes I have all of these things, but just not as organized as I should.... 
it's the responsible thing to do...
Maybe this year I will do it...

I'm just saying'!!!

New Years Ideas

Here are some fun
ideas to help 
ring in 2012!!!

I love this midnight dinner party idea 
 I love the black eyed peas in the sparkler bucket (ya know they should be eaten on new years day for good luck!) And the "Midnight" Intense Dark chocolate is a nice touch. Lastly, for all of us early to bed people, you can start your midnight dinner party at 9pm (since it's midnight in New York!)...

This is a fun & simple NYE activity...

And it's always fun to send 
guests home with a midnight snack!

Happy New Year!

Christmas Morning Treats!

In these final days leading up to "the big day" we are all scrabbling to put the finishing touches on Christmas Morning! 
Don't forget to have a little breakfast treat ready... 

That said, here's a yummy recipe to 
enjoy while you lounge in your 
new robe & slippers...
and while the kiddos play with 
their new toys from Santa!

2 small tubes refrigerator buttermilk biscuits OR 1 tube Pillsbury Grands buttermilk biscuits
3 Tbsp. butter or margarine, melted
1/2 C. maple syrup
1/3 C. packed brown sugar
1/2 tsp. cinnamon
1/4 C. chopped pecans, optional
1/4 C. chopped almonds, optional

Spray a fluted pan with non-stick spray. Combine the melted butter and syrup in a small bowl and set aside. In another bowl, combine the brown sugar, cinnamon, and nuts (if desired).

Place about half of the syrup mixture in the bottom of the pan. Then sprinkle half of the brown sugar mixture on top.

Lay the biscuits on the bottom of the pan, overlapping edges (closely together) to form a ring.

Top with remaining syrup and sugar mixtures.

Bake at 375 degrees for 15 minutes or until golden brown.

Cool for 1 minute in the pan, then invert onto a serving platter and enjoy!

Got to All Things Delicious to get 
the step-by-step pictorial on how to 
make this yummy creation...

Merry Christmas!
