February in a Nut Shell

Hi there!

I hope that you are all doing well. Things are getting back to normal for us now that Mardi Gras is over .  It has been non stop with work, and benefits for Officer Billa’s family.  I have been blessed to attend 2 events so far and I have put together a fund raising breakfast at work this week.  I hope we have a great turn out.  I will say that this month has been a bit hard since Stephen went back to night shift.  I have not been sleeping well,  I guess it is just something that I will have to deal with.  February was a bit jam packed, So I figure that I can just sum up my last month in one post.


Stephen worked his first Mardi Gras Parade as a MPD

I went to a weekend Parade with some friends and got some Chicken on a stick.

So bad for you but sooo delicious!

As a member of the Citizens Academy Alumni Association, I got to help hand out lunches to all of the Officers who were working the parades on Joe Cain, Lundi Gras and Fat Tuesday. It is so nice to get the chance to talk with the Officers and thank them for all that they do for our community.


And these are the Chocolate cupcakes I made for Stephen’s birthday.  He took them to his Precinct and shared them with his squad.  There were none left and a few of the guys went back for seconds.  Even at the age of 44 he loves cupcakes!

I know that we are in the middle of March, but I will have plenty to write about soon.  I have tried some new recipes and revamped some old, so look for them soon.

Until Then,
