Food and Sparkles

I should be helping the cousins get the house ready for our jewelry party.  I use "our" loosely, as I had nothing to do with the planning.

But I have done some cooking today.  We've made artichoke dip, taco dip, a salmon ball, shortbread, candlelight cake, and also have plans for stuffed mushrooms and chocolate fruit fondue.  Needless to say, I'm excited to eat.

If there's one thing you should know about me, it's that I really like food.

We will browsing Silpada's most recent catalog, and I may have to pick out something pretty and sparkly for myself.  And maybe a Christmas gift or two, just so I don't feel guilty for a personal purchase.

I don't know if you noticed, but I failed at NaBloPoMo.  I drove across the state yesterday and then was so exhausted last night that I fell asleep without even thinking of posting.

I don't really feel that bad about it.  I may still try to finish out the month, but I make no promises.

In other news, there was no snow the entire drive.  At all.  So I got myself all worried for nothing.  Let's hope Sunday's drive is as stress free.

Happy weekend!

Today, I'm thankful for family that loves to cook delicious things as much as I do.  It makes for a lot of fun.


  1. There is, however, plenty of snow here in B'ham for you to have missed. Not to mention the fireworks here at our house last night.

  2. Ummmm, I kinda love Silpada. Hope the party was a success!
