My kitchen survived, will I??

It was just shy of a year ago that I flew out to Utah for my first bloggy bash, which was an absolute blast! Well tomorrow Maisie and I are attending the Georgia Bloggy Bash hosted by Melissa. We already know the local gals Deb & LiLi, Kathy & Lisa but we're looking forward to meeting Alison & Mali, Angela, Catherine, Connie, Heather, Kris, Krista, Maryellen, Stacy, Susie, Tawni and Tracy. I know that it's going to be a blast as this is one fun loving group of gals. Hopefully I'll survive the day and have lots of good stories and pictures to post.

Melissa asked if I could bring along some desserts so Thursday morning I did just a wee bit of baking. Three pounds of butter and obscene amounts of chocolate, sugar, flour and a disaster of a kitchen later I had four delicious desserts to bring along which hopefully the gals will all enjoy. I made Deb's favorite Chocolate Mint Brownies as well as Oatmeal Coconut Raspberry Bars, Mrs. Ogle's Tarts and Lemon Squares.

After all that cooking in the morning, Maisie needed some time with friends so yesterday afternoon we met up with some of our Library friends at the indoor playground where Maisie ran around like a crazy girl. Maybe it was all the little tastes and a sugar high but she was one busy little girl.

Early this morning Deb called and asked if I wanted to join her and LiLi up at the Kidzstock playground. So off we were for a morning of play where in between time-outs, Maisie was a little daredevil going down the biggest slide time after time tempting LiLi to get in on the action and in the end she joined in and the girls had fun doing the big slides. Enjoy all the pics that Deb took and hopefully I'll survive the bloggy bash to post again soon.

  3. Yummmmmm. Man does time fly!!! On year already!? I am just dreaming about those pralines you brought me...I think I will be doing a little making and baking me some of those! Have a blast and I expect to hear EVERYTHING! Hi to the gals!


  4. Gorgeous photos! Your desserts sound YUMMY!

  5. What fun! Two adorable girls. Great shots, Mom.



  6. Lemon squares? There were lemon squares? I think in my sugar high (read: ate 5 brownies, 2 tarts and a raspberry square) I missed them. Ah man!

    Thank you so much Lisa for bringing all the fabu desserts. Going to check out your recipe blog for the recipes. you ship to Canada? :o)

  7. Just for the record... a "wee" bit of baking is maybe brownies from scratch . Your bake-fest was something altogether different!
