Life Is Good

There were so many things about today that were just awesome…

Like the fact that I got to spend it with some of my best buddies.



I got to get my hands on cutie Brody once again.


(please ignore the scrub appearance today…I just wasn’t feelin’ it)

There was plenty of good food to go around…


Including these amazing bars, courtesy of Mal, which I happily ate two of.


My second attempt at baked brie in puff pastry with raspberry preserves only exploded about half as bad as last week…hey, I’m making progress.


Mal’s famous chili…


Which was then made even more amazing once it was dumped into a Panera bread bowl.


FYI: This stuff is serious. By the time I was finished, there was about half of a completely gutted shell of a bowl left. So, so, so good!


Pumpkin Pie Smidgens from Gertrude Hawk. This place has some amazingly delicious goodies.


And, to top it all off, I’m currently leading the football pool that I’m in.


Now let’s just hope that my Jets don’t let me down!

Life is good, my friends, life is GOOD. Smile

      No, he didn’t, but we both have shirts from when we were routing them on in their basketball games. Our cousins Sarah & Jeff went there, though :)

    THose bread bowls are genius- the filling = perfect dippage tools! Love the optimism of the most- it’s the little things that matter in life…they all add up to something great. Hope your week follows suit :)!

    I LOVE smidgens! Gertrude Hawks is chocolate from my hometown! Every holiday is filled with plenty of smidgens and chocolate peanut butter pretzels. :)
