...that not all things purchased at "Whole Foods" are healthy or nutritious.
Plain Old Kriti's hubby and my hubby are buds.
Her husband stumbled across this odd gift and instantly thought of my husband,
who is a carnivore at heart.
In case you can't see the picture clearly, let me give you the scoop:
This is a chocolate bar laced with bits of apple wood smoked BACON!
I repeat: CHOCOLATE COVERED BACON!
The only thing that could make this healthier is if they took the candy bar, battered it, deep fried it, and sprinkled a little more salt on top.
In case you are wondering....It wasn't totally nasty, but it isn't anything that I would go out of my way to get.
I will say that it made us laugh, so I guess it was worth it.

I knew he couldn't resist for long.
Yes, I am finally finished with school for a while and am starting to feel like a normal person again. Today was great. My house finally looks and smells like Christmas. I also had a couple of friends over for broccoli cheddar soup, curry chicken salad with cranberries on croissant, and chocolate eclairs. It's good to be me again!
I hope all is well with everyone.
-Happy Christmas-ing and God Bless-

Each lady prepared a dish or a desert.
The Mini Cup Cake Tower was my contribution.
I must pause here and thank my mother-in-law
for helping me finish those little guys.
She is pictured in the top left photo adding shimmer sprinkles.
OH...YES... WE DID!
I had a blast.
The food was delicious, the games hilarious, and the memories priceless.
Thank you Sisters:
Danita, Jennifer, Betsy, Gail, & Karen.

I picked out fabrics...
...and sorted through patterns.
We let the cupcakes for Eloise's class cool while....
...Daddy drew up building plans.
While Eloise was sleeping her doll had a makeover.
She also got to trade in her basket/bed for a new one that matches her big sister's.
...and our daughter now has several hand made gifts from her two biggest fans.

That leaves us with a grand total of 11 Birthdays in August!
This little guy isn't big on sushi, but had no problems polishing off that cupcake.
