Holy Molly! I think my blood sugar just skyrocketed I will need insulin for hyperglycemia from this sweet, mouth watering post.

STILL!!! Cole is you best creation. He is sooooooooo cute and the Canada shirt looks great on him.

Okay, how many maids do you have? Surely you have assistants? You are wonder woman to be creating everyday and they are all fantastic. Have you ever created anything that you ended up discarding?

Winter Olympics - oh yea! CURLING! Yes, curling is my favorite next to speed skating.
