Lucky Salted Caramel Dark Chocolate Cake

I feel lucky
Very, very lucky
And probably not for the reasons
you might think.

Not because its the luckiest day of  all
St. Patricks Day

Not because I correctly picked
one single number  on
 the last Powerball  jackpot
(I still need to turn in that ticket 
for my $4.00hope its not too late)

Its because of this super-amazing twist of fate

Double Chocolate Cream Pie

Can you build a better mouse trap??

Hmmm....

Some things can be improved upon....

and other things...are probably better left as they are...

So this post begs the question...

Could I make a perfectly chocolate cream pie more chocolaty??

Turns out the answer is....

yes!!

Valentine Table & DIY Heart Napkin Rings



Roses are red...

Frogs are green...

Isn't this the cutest Valentine table

that you've ever seen??

Wait...

Don't answer that!!

It is pretty cute though...


Whew... 
friends... What a whirlwind
of activity around our house lately...
Between the crazy weather,
 field trips, school meetings and
 Live videos... there's a lot going on!

Did you see the FB Hometalk Live??
(I'll include it at the end of this post in case you want to watch.)
Did you see the part where my mom wrote in??
She totally caught me off guard...

Touchdown!! Snackadium Success!! ...and Super Bowl Snack Ideas!!

Up until yesterday...
all of my Pinterest fails 
had thankfully taken place in
 the privacy of my own kitchen... 

Jell-O molds that didn't gel...
cakes that didn't rise to any occasion...
 ...there have been plenty of misses... 

Plenty.

So yesterday, 
making a BIG super-important project...
all morning... on live TV... 
Well, it came with a little stress...
I did not want a Pinterest fail...
and especially not in front of...
Cincinnati.
Is that asking too much??

This is probably why I didn't sleep 
very well on Thursday night...

So much to do... 
So much to think about...

Will this "stadium" which is actually
 a pile of office organization 
boxes and computer holders look
like a stadium??  Will it??  
Can it??

Here I am setting up the stadium structure on Thursday.

Friends... 

Yesterday...  
was A-mazing!!

I can't wait to show you all the cute, 
super-fun things we did... live, on-air yesterday...

No Pinterest fails allowed!!  No way!!
