National Pineapple Upside Down Cake Day

I love Pineapple Upside Down Cake. They are not hard to make but I have only made one in my entire life. It was for Christmas Dinner in 2001. 
The cake got pushed to the back of the counter and forgotten.
 (Look how young and thin I once was!)
 When I finally remembered it,  it was looking a lot more Christmas-y than before.

If you are making a Pineapple Upside Down Cake to celebrate today, 
have a bite for me.

Friday's Fav

This week's fav is this picture Hub's took of our granddaughter, Sophia Grace.

We first met her on Saturday, March 12.  I traveled on to Kansas for a few days.  Upon returning, we visited Miss Sophia again - one short week later.  I could not believe the changes in her.  When we see her again in June, she will be ready to go to prom.  Well, almost...

We've thrown in a bone or two as well...

We can hardly wait to meet our new granddaughter...

Friday's Fav

Since this is Oprah's last year on the air, that means there will soon be no more of her favorite things episodes.  Someone needs to step up to take her place.  I'm here to fill the void. 

This is my favorite thing this week.  Some of my family members tease me about my obsession with them.  I carry these in my purse and in the car.  They are used to wipe sticky hands and messy faces.  On occasion, I've used them to wipe down a table or high chair at a restaurant if I feel like it might not be clean enough.  I NEVER EVER touch a grocery cart without wiping it down with one of this wipes and then I only touch the cart where I have wiped.  

As reported in USA Today, researchers from the University of Arizona swabbed 85 grocery carts in four states for bacterial contamination.  They found fecal bacteria on 72% of those carts.  Ewww!  With results like that, I might even start wearing rubber gloves!

Have You Seen This?

I first saw this YouTube video when one of my Facebook friends posted it the first of the month.  At that time, it only had six million hits.  Now it has over seven million.  Several hundred of those hits are from me...

This video makes me smile.  I love it when she pretends to whistle along with her dad, then she asks him if she will learn to whistle.  She adores her dad.  You can tell by the look in her eyes when she looks at him.  It is that same look all little girls have for their daddies.
