Bunco...and the recipes!! :)
"Buncoing is a word...May I be allowed to illustrate? It's root, BUN, originates from the Latin BUN meaning BUNch of wild and crazy chicks who get together every month to laugh their BUNs off!! (Found on the Real Academia Espanola)" Sonia Flores
September Bunco Babes!!
Well, once again, Bunco has come and gone! It was great getting together and letting loose with the girls. Our Biggest Loser was Kareena...most Buncos was Ginger, Most Wins was April, Traveling was Sonia, and the winner of the draw was...I can't remember. Haha...

Cherry Limeade Punch

Cake balls These are fantastic!
Any kind of cake mix and frosting. ( I used Choc. and choc. last night. Will make Red Velvet with cream cheese frosting next time!) 1 pkg. White or Chocolate Almond Bark
Make cake according to directions. After its baked, crumble in a bowl and cool. Add frosting and mix it all together. Roll into balls and heat up almond bark. Dip balls into Almond bark and let harden on wax paper! Yummo!!!
I am happy and blessed!! I have a daughter that brings joy to my life and a husband that loves the Lord. I love being a stay at home mom and I love to play Bunco, read, workout, and spend time with my family!
Proverbs 3:5-6 is one of my favorite verses. "Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding. In all thy ways, acknowledge Him, and He shall direct thy paths."
