Hey, Everyone! I am still coaxed out of hibernation for the afternoon by my best bud Lisa Renea...LR-this is for you!! Glad to know you are still checking in on my poor blog!
Now, what to write? I am COLD! I am sick of being cold! When is 18 degrees a good temp? Today it is! It has been SO COLD and SO WINDY! Those two things are NOT a good combination!
A few announcements to make!
3. I am and Auntie again!! My new nephew, Zebulon Russell, arrived on January 18th! Of course, he is THE cutest thing ever, and he has already stated that I am THE BEST auntie in the world. Was there ever a question? He is quite the little cuddlebug, too!

4. Buzz and Bloom has their new Design Team profiles up! Check them out here! We have quite a talented crew!

Now, here is a GREAT new recipe that I have recently discovered. We had a cookie swap at church before Christmas, and my friend Lynne brought these.
Now, I don't know if anyone ever tries any of the recipes I post, but I strongly urge you to try these..they are way simple, and are some of THE BEST cookies I have ever had...They contain no flour, and no eggs, and are so moist and chewy you won't be able to resist! They call for M&M's and Chocolate chips, but I either use ALL M&M's or substitute the chocolate chips for peanut butter chips. I also have used holiday M&M's. They were so cute with Christmas M&M's, and my next project is to make some with Valentine's Day M&M's. I also picked up some bags of all green M&M's, they are marketed for Valentine's Day, but I will use them for St. Patty's Day cookies! I don't have a photo of the cookies, they don't last long enough to take one! So here ya go!

Well well well! I do believe you have been hibernating with the cold winter! We are in the same boat... wind, snow, more snow, horrid temps... right now it is 32 in the town down the road... sweltering! But snowing.... big fat flakes... the wind was horrid this morning... you get the drift (pun!).....

Hang in there! I am so happy tomorrow is Feb. 1st! Goodbye January!
