Morning Routines, Fake Blood, and Fortune Cookies

Okay, I'm totally laughing at that title! This post is just a mishmash of things that have been going on around here.

Do you have a morning routine? I tend to do the same thing every morning. When my alarm goes off, I get my youngest son up and make sure he's eating breakfast, then I get myself ready, check emails, Instagram, etc. Then I take my son to school.

When I get home, I feed and water the cat, open all the blinds and look at my list of things to do for the day. But before I get started on my chores, errands, etc. I take a few moments to relax with my tea and tea biscuits. :) 

Those tea biscuits are so good dunked in my tea!

I put this on Instagram the other day (you can find me @texasdecor) I'm beginning to wonder why I thought it was such a good idea to purchase all those tubes of fake blood when it was on clearance after Halloween. ;) I knew my son would have a ball with it, and he has...scaring the pants off his mother!! Lol!

Doesn't that look real? The kits also came with stage makeup to make fake bruises with. Ugh. 

So, we tried to make homemade fortune cookies the other day. didn't turn out so well. At least they tasted good. :)

Do y'all add extra seasonings to store bought spaghetti sauce? I was amazed at how many things I add to it to "jazz it up" a little. Below are all the extras I add.

I guess we like things spicy around here. :)

I just had to include this pic of Holly I shared on IG yesterday. Doesn't it look like she's belting out a tune? Ha!

Well, I guess that's it for now. I'll be back later in the week with a "household tips" post I've been working on. I love reading those kinds of posts, and hopefully you do too. :) 

I wish everyone a wonderful week!



  1. I'm glad you explained that blood picture! It really does look real. I've never added too much to my store bought speghetti sauce. I bet you make it taste a lot better! I love speghetti too. Yes, I guess I have a particular morning routine too. It mostly starts with coffee! LOL!

  2. What a fun post, Lisa! I love those random bits of this and that....and that fake blood DOES look real! OH MY! /That could be a heart-stopper for sure! Love your fortune cookies- apparently your fortune that day was "Fortune cookies not turn out right" Have a great day- xo Diana

  3. Fake blood? It's been awhile....but I raised 4 boys so I remember that kind of fun! lol Our morning routine is pretty slow...we're retired! But I still like to get my bed made and things like that done first thing so I have the day free for whatever. We hiked this afternoon....that was fun! Hugs, Diane

  4. Love this post, Lisa! You had me going, I thought somebody cut themselves. LOL It looks so real. I also have a morning routine and if it gets changed for any reason, it feels like the rest of my day is upside down. :) Can't wait for you cleaning tips post. I love when you share those! Hugs Maria

  5. The fake blood thing would really freak me out!!! LOL!! I have never added spices to my store bought spaghetti sauce, I will have to check them out and see what I can come up with :o)

  6. Oh, the blood! Boys are so good for practical jokes! I love random posts, this was a coincidence thought, once in awhile I have a proper breakfast, but I really do like reheated leftovers! Ha! And today it was spaghetti! No kidding!

    Have a great week!
