It's been a long time.....but I'm baaaaaaaaaaaaaackkkkkkk!!!!

Hello beautiful people!!! I know it's been a while, and I've been a bad girl for being absent for so long, but do forgive this old girl, for she has missed you all so!!!

What have I been up to you ask?

Well, let me see.....

I've been listening to a 9yr old rattle my walls while playing his electric guitar (amp on full blast) non stop.

Listening to a 3yr old tell me a thing or two every five minutes.


Trying desperately to hide the sarcasm in my voice every time that sweet (but sometimes a little slow on the uptake) husband of mine asks me where something is, such as the bread, or the toothpaste. Really??? You do you live here, right????

Anyhow, to celebrate my return I have decided it's about time that I do a giveaway!!! Yay....just in time for the holidays!!!

All ya gotta do to be eligible to win is follow me on Twitter and Facebook, and leave a comment on both!! So look to the right of you and click away!! Now, I'm new to this whole Twittering be gentle with me folks! ;)

The giveaway will end Friday, so hurry over and get busy!! I will announce the winner Friday at 11AM Pacific Standard Time!!

Wanna know what you can win? Check out the photo below folks, and feast your eyes!!!!

Irresistibly Sweet Blog Award!!!

WooHoo, yay, yipee...lil 'ol lucky me just received the Irresistibly Sweet Blog Award from the ever so gracious Jana, over at  Raining Grace !

Thank you Jana, you're a doll!!

The rules of this blog award are :
  •  I must share 7 things about myself (I can never follow the rules, so I did 9!),
  • I must share the love by awarding 7 other bloggers!

So here we go...

1. At the current moment I am sadder than I can express that the last installment of the Harry Potter films is soon to be over.

2. The perfect meal for me is a nice  plate of Bangers and Mash with a tall cold pint of Guinness Stout beer to wash it all down, and a lovely Sticky Toffee Pudding to end it all.

3. My youngest, who is three, has started calling me "Sir" (which by the way, is starting to give me a complex). 

4. I love the sound of chirping birds early in the morning when the rest of the world is still asleep.

5. I have developed a strong liking to skinny jeans, I find that they hold droopy, saggy parts in quite nicely; they're almost like Spanx that you can wear out in public!

6. It never fails, I always cry at the sweet sound of children singing, even when they're looking off to the right of the audience with their finger jammed up their nose. It's only the wee folk that can get away with this...can you imagine if I did that? Please, no one answer that!!

7. I just reconnected with a dear friend after 15 years, and nothing is more refreshing than picking up exactly where you left off, just as if no time at all has passed. The testament of true friendship!!

8. My new favorite British television series is Doc Martin. The Doc is rude, and tactless...and I LOVE him!!

9. When I was 9 years old, I vowed to grow up and own a beef jerky factory that served cold Dr. Pepper!!! Ahhh, the dreams of the innocent. To think that all could  be right in the world with a limitless supply of beef jerky and cold Dr. Pepper!!

Oh yeah, don't forget to pay a visit to sweet Jana over at Raining Grace:

Here are the 7 bloggers that I'm passing this sweet award onto:

A Little Taste of Heaven

Hello Folks!!!

As the old saying goes, "time flies when you're having fun" and how true I am finding that to be!

You see, on June 18Th, I will be celebrating my 40TH birthday!!!

Can you believe it???

You know I don't look a day over 25(lol)!!!!

Now as my luck would have it, modern technology has yet to invent a youth serum, so I guess I am forced to really start taking good care of myself. Not that I don't take good care of myself now, but there's always room for improvement, right???

Part of my "improvement" plan is to drop 5 to 10lbs.

I figure, hey, why can't I have the face AND the body I did when I was 25???

Humor me people!!!

So, all has been going really well. I've been eating tons of fruits and veggies, and I've discovered that I have a true talent for making a wide variety of fabulous homemade soups (since that's all that I've been living on).

I figure if all else fails in life I can open up a soup kitchen!!

Now here's the problem.....

I have come across the most INCREDIBLE shop on Etsy called Lebleux Cookies, and the Pastry Chef behind all the magic is Chef Vincent Lombardo!!

I must admit, that never before have I bought any food related items on Etsy.

I've always been a bit hesitant....

What if it's not fresh by the time I get it?

What if it tastes terrible?

What if there's cat hair or something floating around in the cook's kitchen?

Well my dears, my fears have been abated!!!

Vincent Lombardo, a Pastry Chef, who just recently graduated from  The French Culinary Institute in New York City, makes the most WONDERFUL, DELECTABLE, MOUTH-WATERING goodies!! He even worked under Master Pastry Chef Jacques Torres at Jacques Torres Chocolate Haven!!!!

My dear friends, I am a Food Network Junkie, and let me tell you, if you don't already know, Jacques Torres is a BIG DEAL !!!!!!

Anyhow, let me show you what I ordered from dear Chef Vincent...

Cinnamon Whiskey Cookies

Do these not look divine????

According to Chef Vincent these are his specialty cookies, and I can see why!! These yummy little treasures are basically a  snicker doodle sprinkled with roasted cinnamon, and then soaked with a sweet whiskey glaze! Can you get any better than that???

These cookies were so incredibly yummy, and did I mention that I ordered them on a Friday night, and had them in my mouth by Monday afternoon!! So no need to worry if these little babies are going to arrive fresh!!

I was so excited to get these cookies, and they truly did live up to the hype. My only problem is that my cute little family had the nerve to stick their hand in the cookie jar; so to speak.

Let me explain.

Rarely does anyone in my house eat sweets, except for me and my little daughter, Scout. I can pack the cupboards with the most sugar laden items, and no one ever wants them! The ONE time I figure I have a treat for myself,  EVERYONE in the house has developed a sweet tooth!!!

The nerve!!!

Well, I guess I shouldn't be greedy!!!

Anyhow, next on my list is the Ganache Filled Brownies, I've already ordered them, and I can hardly wait to get them!!

And guess what???

My beloved husband and son don't like chocolate!!! Yay!!!

What about my littlest one you ask?

She takes her daily nap at 12:00...looks like I'll be eating those Ganache Filled Brownies promptly at 12:05!!!

So folks don't forget to stop by Lebleux Cookies and take a look at all the goodies, you won't be disappointed!!

These treats really are a little taste of heaven!!

If you would like to show Chef Vincent some love, visit his Facebook fan page at:!/pages/Lebleux-Cakes/131311826938961.

Until next time, I bid you adieu!!
