Sprinkles Of My Life

I know it's a little late, but, Happy New Year.  I hope you all had a good new years celebration.  As I mentioned I was visiting my sister in Utah for a week, and it was great!  I was able to spend lots of time holding and playing with my 7 month old niece and nephew, and I wouldn't have had it any other way. Here are a few highlights of my trip:

  • We went ice skating!
  • I went to my first Hibachi grill (pretty cool!) and I actually ate some sushi..and liked it.. You should know that I am NOT a fish/seafood fan at all.  But I'm slowly trying new things.  Baby steps!
  • We went to an Improv Show, (another first) that was hilarious!

We were hoping it would snow when we were there. Of course it didn't snow at all, but the day after we left it started snowing!  My sister thought it was a sign that we needed to come back ;).

I started school a few weeks ago.  Another tough semester coming up.  Wish me luck!

Super Bowl is this weekend. Who are you rooting for?? I don't follow football enough to even have a team...but since my brother-in-law is a HUGE Bronco's fan, I guess that makes me one by association, right? Maybe not, but I will be rooting for them.  Don't forget to check out my tutorial for Super Bowl Cupcakes!

Also coming up....VALENTINE'S DAY! Some of us love it, some of us hate it.  I'm a lover, have you know :).  Do you have plans yet?  My sweetie and I are going to Capitola for Valentine's.  It's been our tradition the past 2 Valentine's Days, and this year will be our 3rd!  We absolutely love it there. Do you have any Valentine's traditions? I'd love to hear them!

Sprinkles Of My Life

I hope everyone had a merry Christmas!  Mine was great!  Lots of driving around to visit various sides of the families, but well worth it.  I've been enjoying my vacation from school a little too much and have been slacking on my recipe posting, so I'm sorry about that.  I promise I will try to be better!  Maybe that will be one of my new year's resolutions.  Have you made a list of resolutions?  I haven't yet, I'm trying to decide if I really want to make a list or not.  How many of us really stick to them the whole year?  I wish I could say I do.. but aint nobody got time for that!!  Oh I know.. my first resolution will be to keep my resolutions!!

 

Speaking of New Year's, is anyone doing anything exciting?  Do you go to a big party and ring in the new year in style?  Or are you more of the stay at home and bang pots and pans type?  Or do you even stay up at all?  This year we will be visiting one of my sisters and celebrating in Salt Lake City!  I'm so excited!  Last year I couldn't even stay up to watch the ball drop {I'm an old soul ;)}, so I hope I can make it all night!

 

What sort of baked goods did you make for the holidays?  My Christmas specialty is my Andes Mint Cookies.  Some of my other goodies I made were decorated Sugar Cookies, Peanut butter Chocolate Bark, and Chocolate Chip Cookies!  Do you have a specialty goodie that everyone expects from you each year?

I hope you all have a safe and happy new year.  Cross your fingers for me in hopes that I stay awake this year! ;-)
