Between the chocolates I dreamed of yesterday and the goodies I'm already staring longingly at today, I feel a theme coming on...or a hormone change in the making!! LOL
Good thing I got this recipe for Lemon or Chocolate Macaroon Tartlets from Cindy, over at the CinLynnBoutique's blog.
And, by the way, this is the picture she showed me of the candy she got from Mexico that I talked about in yesterday's blog post.
Just look at all that coconut!!!!...*drooling*
But this is just some of the things that are being featured on some of my favorite blogs right now. And since I'm sure you don't want to here about all of the nervousness going on in our household right now, I figured I'd share with you what's going on in the blogland households instead.
Mina and her husband Alex , from the blog Sending Postcards, are traveling in Spain right now. They have page after page of gorgeous photos too! Here's a couple.
Vicki, at the blog 2 Bags Full, is having a Giveaway. And not just any old Giveaway. She's giving away a sweater cowl, of your choice, from her Etsy shop!
The drawing will be on February 14th. All you have to do is comment on her blog to get in on it!!
Elaine, over at A Scattering, is looking for information on a mural painter by the name of Eric R. Dwyer. She has photos of his work and the story behind her hunt on her blog. If you know anything about him, you can email her there.
Hanna, over at the blog bouffe e bambini is home from the hospital with little baby Ginger.
She had completely natural childbirth....YES SHE DID!!! ^_^ The whole birth story...which some of you women who've had babies already may hate her for after reading it...is up now. Just follow this link.
Alittlesprite ventured into my neck of the woods, and wrote a poem. It's called "If Only", and it's REALLY good!! Check it out HERE!...I'm gonna have to keep my good eye on her! -_^
There's some other Giveaways going on. Slumber Designs is featuring an etsy shop owner, absolutequeen, whose giving away a beautiful headband...leather!
Details for how to enter are HERE.
Elle The Heiress is expecting her baby real soon. She's going to be listing some gorgeous new jewelry in her etsy shop later this week. You have to get in there to see it quick though, because her shop is going into vacation mode all the way up to March just as soon as the baby arrives!
If you like Diana Ross, and a good and funny anniversary story of a couple that have been married for a while, you need to go over to Facing 50 with Humour and check it out. It's so funny!! It's entitled "Why should leopards change their spots?" ^_^
I threw in this guitar player from Nat's Natterings' blog.......Just because I wanted to!!! ROCK ON little one!!! ^_^
The countdown for little Baby Frye, over at Oh What Fun, has begun!!! WOOHOO!!! :-)
Okay, one last giveaway....I KNOW!!! On the blog Jewelry by Janelle she's giving away this ebony bangle on January 31, 2011.
It's so pretty, isn't it?! Once again, get on over there and enter if you want it!!
The only things left for me to talk about are, of course, how much I'm enjoying the tennis this year...I thought I'd spare any non-tennis lovers the over-excited details. ^_^And how much I enjoy Nicole's Homemade Treats blog, especially on Wordless Wednesdays. That's the day she shows off these cakes....And YES!! They are cakes!!!
Aren't they fabulous?!! I almost can't wait to see what theme the next Wednesday cake is gonna take!! :-)
I hope you enjoy checking out my blogland features. Be thankful I didn't spend this time telling you the play by play of my hubby's nervous week, getting ready to go for his Colonoscopy on Friday! He's at the age for this routine piece of business now. He's not happy about it, but since I need someone to take care of me in the manner to which I have become accustomed...^_^...and I have to make sure he's in shape to do it!....it's got to be done!
And therein lies the rest of the story, probably the reason I've been craving chocolate and having wild dreams of comfort food!! ^_^ And a repeat of this poem was in order too!
Around the Bloggie World
Blue birds, with tails extended.
New tutorial writers too.
New cameras at the ready,
all enhance my bloggie view.
Face sketches, eyes so pretty.
Flower earrings to give away.
And all kinds of crafty candy
also being given away today.
A painting of weeping skies;
a musical horn made into cake;
a miniature calendar
and a snow scene by a lake.
A new haircut, all snazzy;
A butterfly print. It's her first win!!
A Himalayan trek,
and baked cookies in a homemade tin.
I love the things I see
when I look at my Bloggie world.
It's exciting for a writer
whose a curiously nosy girl!
