  • Hi Friends!

    Thank you for stopping by my little home on the internet. My name is Marlece. I am a Jesus lovin' country girl. A wife. A momma of 4 boys. A cook. A hairstylist. And well... I wear many other hats depending on the time of day.

    You can read a bit more about me and my family on my "About Me" page.

    While you're here, I hope you find something that inspires you to whip up a yummy recipe, try a new hairstyle, call up your sisters, or just hug your kids. I hope you will reach out and say "hello" too. I would love to connect with you on Facebook or Twitter.

  • At My Table

    This is where my heart my table feeding people. Not only does cooking bring out the artsy in me again for I love to try new things, it also gives me pleasure to have many at my table. The Lord blessed me with a table that has been passed down from many generations and I know that many have sat at it before my time to fellowship together. I want to continue that heritage in my home. The Lord gave me the gifting of hospitality and I have a huge desire to please Him in this area. So enjoy a recipe or two when you go to "At my table"

  • In My Chair

    My salon is a place that I can create. I love to see transformation and usually not just in a look, but the way someone might feel. It is a place where I get the privilege of having one on one with someone. I consider it my ministry. I always feel an incredible sense of blessing when someone chooses to sit in my chair and share a little of themselves while I get to use my artistic ability. I like to share some of my work and time spent when you go to "In my chair" at Tame Your Mane Hair Salon.

to end the day with pumpkin cookies……

Football, cross country, dirt bike riding, leaves, and then to end the day with pumpkin cookies. Corvan is my help in the kitchen. We decided to stay in the spirit of the season with making these yummy cookies. We decided these cookies were like eating a piece of pumpkin bread in cookie form. Yum, yum! Ashton and Chars, this ones for YOU! I know how you have been feeding that sweet tooth, add this one to the list this week.
Pumpkin Cookies with cream cheese
1 cup shortening
1 cup butter
1 cup brown sugar
1cup white sugar
2 cups canned pumpkin
2 eggs
2 tsps baking soda
1 1/2 tsps ground cinnamon
1 tsp salt
4 cups flour
Cream shortening, butter, sugar and pumpkin. Add eggs and mix well. Add dry ingredients, mix well.
Drop from spoon to cooke sheet. Bake 10 minutes at 350

When cookies cool, spread cream cheese frosting on each. You can make your own or cheat like we did and buy betty crocker cream cheese frosting

leaves, leaves, leaves………….

Leaves, leaves, go away come back NEVER!!!! I was outside for hours blowing leaves yesterday and when I was starting to get a handle on it, I looked up and noticed there were still as many leaves on the trees as was on the ground. “Oh, but it is beautiful”………ok, maybe when I have two little faces shining back at me in the middle of them, or watching the boys having a blast playing in them, it makesit all ok. So bitter sweet I suppose……..

Jenay - Those leaf pics are to die for. My nephews are the cutest EVER!!!! Good job to Layton and Brayden on their sports….unbelievable how big and handsome they are…wow!!!

a happy sports day!

Brayden also had a great game today! His dad got to see him play today and congratulated him at the end for job well done. Rainier won in over time by making a touch down. It was very exciting and a nail biter for us all!

Layton ran cross country today for his Yelm team. He placed for a varsity position and did real well. He had a good run! I think he is glad the season is over………..

the things they say…….

Today we were in the car coming home from picking Brayden up from school. Brayden was sitting in the front of the car while Jordan sits right behind him. Brayden rolled down the window to get some air and Jordan is back in the back yelling, “ROLL UP THAT WINDOW IT BLONDES ME, your blonding me!” Brayden looks over at me and we started busting a gut. Brayden says, “I think you’re already ‘blonde’.
