Red guacamole with roasted carrots

Hi there friends! Happy Friday!
I am SO happy to say I have back with my computer!  It has been a good while since she has really worked properly, but after a little stay in the Apple store computer hospital, she is ALL fixed!  It is a nice feeling to log into ones computer and not see a gray screen!  So I will soon be able to reply to all the lovely comments and catch up on lots of blogs!  Blogging from my phone was really challenging, and my little fingers got tired from typing out my email and blog address over and over! Whew!

Today is Foodie Friday, but also a VERY special birthday!  My big sis is another year older!  I really don’t feel like we are in our 30s, but still back in our early 20s…She is not only my sister, but my friend!  Growing up we had our moments, but most of the time had each others back!  She has always be the most beautiful girl to me, and I always wanted to be just like her when I grew up.  She is an amazing wife and mommy to the best 7 nephews and nieces around! She loves God and has a heart to help anyone in need.  She is my rock and support and never judges me for my mistakes.  Love you sis!

    I love the idea of dipping carrots in guac instead of chips, b/c I could eat a whole bag of corn chips hehe. And I’m with you, blogging on your phone is impossible! I need to read other blogs and edit my own on a computer, hope everything gets fixed!

      Thank you, I will tell her 🙂
      It was the best guac I’ve made recently! So creamy with the chunky pops of flavor!
