How to make Slime~The newest trend for adults and kids!



My daughter is 12 years old and she is currently hooked and addicted to making slime.

Slime is a gooey, slimy mixture of a bunch of ingredients, and it is a blast to play with.

It can get messy and a tad expensive with all the "stuff" it takes to make but, so worth the investment.

Relax and enjoy the process and get creative.

My daughter has started a Instagram account with lots of slime videos and pics.

Coddle Creek Farms Market-Fresh, Local & Delicious.



Recently, I checked out the Coddle Creek Farms Market. 

The market is located in the adorable gray building you see on 

Coddle Creek Highway in Mooresville. 





They carry all kinds of goodies and a vast selection of Apple Butter



They also have fresh vegetables, fruits, pimento cheese and milk in stock.



Want some local corn meal or biscuit mix?

 Lets make biscuits for dinner.


Fresh beans by the pound



When was the last time you were able to buy beans by the scoop? Love this concept.

Fresh beans are the best, cooked all day on the stove or crock pot. 

Serve beans with those biscuits and dinner is done.



Coddle Creek Farms also carries Muscadine & Scuppernog juice


If you love Honey, this is the best and it is Pure local wildflower honey.

Homemade Peanut Butter

Now, the Peanut Butter is handmade by Mama Young and it is so good.

 I bought the regular peanut butter and use on toast for breakfast, it is so smooth and creamy.

They have crunchy, chocolate and creamy.

I sampled the chocolate peanut butter and it was good.




Stop by and see the nice folks at the Coddle Creek Farms Market.

They will be getting in more fresh vegetables and fruits as the seasons change. 

I can't wait for tomatoes, watermelons and all those summer crops.

They are located at 

2200 Coddle Creek Highway

Let me just say, "I love Coffee". 

I love how warm it makes me feel, the smell is relaxing and I can drink it day or night.

Traveling between Mooresville and Denver, NC on Hwy 150 sits LKN Coffee Shoppe & Mail Stop



They offer mail boxes for rent, shipping services and sell shipping supplies but also offer some

amazing coffee as well.

LKN Coffee Shoppe & Mail Stop is a cute place with a large menu of coffee, fraps, & snacks.
