This was originally posted in November 2009. Since it's that time of year again I thought I'd bring it back for another go. While not all of these will necessarily be super impressive desserts they really don’t need to be... Continue reading

Is it Leno worthy? It’s something you might see on a typical Monday night during Headlines on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno. It’s definitely Craig Ferguson worthy… he and Geoff Peterson would get a tremendous kick out of it... Continue reading

Hi Carolyn, I haven't been able to find a DVD of Undercover Christmas. I do know, however, that it will be airing on Christmas Eve. If I find a copy for sale somewhere I'll let you know.

Dolly - I'm a little late in responding, hopefully not too late (insert White Rabbit jokes and puns here). I'm not sure if there is a specific pattern for this particular coat. Vogue has some fabulous patterns for fitted coats similar to these. Sorry I couldn't be of more help.

Hi Shanell, Yes, I cut out eye holes after I took the pictures. Since we live so far apart I "borrowed" my cousin's kid to get the measurements to cut out the holes. Boo Boo really loved that costume. Thanks for commenting! Melissa

Hi Rose! all you need to do is clink on the link above (where it reads "Oh Happy Days" at the end of the post) and follow Jordan's instructions (one simple one is to simply leave a comment on her post there). Good Luck!

I know that I surely do. Of course visiting Paris is on my "dream list" but I really want to visit and have someone along that "knows" the place, at least for part of the trip and that just happens... Continue reading

Hello all thanks for stopping by. The nest was just built, right outside my bedroom window, the robins do it every year. @Melissa E -Thanks, I couldn't bring myself to put on boots, not this late in April :). I woke up to about five to six inches of snow but by the time I got home it was pretty much gone...that's why I decided to take the last picture. That one spot was especially bright and sunny. I can't wait to see all the other days!
