This Tin Of Cookies Is Staring At Me

Who doesn't love a good dessert? And how they surround me.

Yesterday, I went over to a fellow blogger's house for the 2nd Annual Bakepalooza. I think it's an official 3rd Annual but I've only been twice. LoveyH is once again, the hostess with the mostest. She had the house decorated for Christmas. She also managed to keep a spotless house with a quick vacuum once-over in the kids area after they ate. How I wish I was that disciplined. Anyway, the vacuum was pretty high tech and yellow. We, however, were green with envy.

Who else wants appliances for Christmas? That would be me.

There is nothing much to say other than we (Dapoppins, Avery Gray, LoveyH and I) had loads of fun baking, eating, goofing off...and no alcohol or bail money was involved. Pictures were taken by Dapoppins although I used an equal amount of blackmail, the likes of which only a friendship of 21 years could produce. We won't be seeing Bakepalooza pics anytime soon and yes, this is a good thing.

I'm officially getting my education now that I've enrolled for my winter classes. I'll emerge from school with a degree in Applied Science. Doesn't that sound official? I had to rearrange my schedule to take English as my first class and math following. I had my math class first but I got curious over the English professor's track record.

Have you seen this site, Rate My Professors? Sounds cheesy, but I found it invaluable. When someone has four solid years of many bad reviews as a teacher, I understand why a class wasn't filling at the same rate as the others. I prefer to be graded by my own merit and with the competition I'll be facing come diploma time, I can't afford a poor grade. I re-registered and appear to have very well liked and competent teachers. Go me!

I also love appliances for Christmas! My husband got me a dishwasher two years ago. It was the best gift ever. My philosophy? Diamonds can't wash dishes.

By the way, you can be greenvious of me too. I have a yellow vacuum. When our vacuum died a few years ago, James had to research all the vacuums. After we took back a Hoover Windtunnel because it didn't suck enough, (haha) he found an incredible deal on a yellow vacuum from Texas. I love that thing.

I shall end this long comment by leaving you congrats on baking and getting schooled!

I am officially jealous. I miss having friends close---and ones that will eat my amazing chocolates.

That rate my professor page is SO COOL! I just checked out my old professors and they were rated just what I thought of them, except for one who drove me insane but which most people liked. Man I wish I had that when I went to school.

you deserve bling for funniness. mama knows her stuff.

i was jealous of bakeapalooza last year, and same again this year. my lack of baking ability does NOT affect my jealousy. just fyi.

Dapoppins said...

We are a fun bunch of gals, alright. We look HAWT in aprons.


yeah for school!!!

Yeah for vacuums that work...Thank you for reminding me to wipe the drool off my chin afterward...A nice vacuum would be better than nice jewelry as far as I am concerned. Jewelry is easily stolen, but what crak-head would break into my home to steal a premium grade vacuum cleaner?

I think you have fun where ever you are what ever you do. LOL

Yay for education! I hope you enjoy yourself. The baking party sounds fun. I want to see the pictures. :-)

I sure am glad I don't have to spend any time around all your baked goodies. I haven't been on either of my bikes for nearly two months now, and even Turtle's occasional brownies or oatmeal chocolate chip cookies in the house is enough to put a few pounds on me that I don't need.

Dapoppins said...

Hey, I posted a picture you took! With a poem even...AND...my husband promised to write a Man's viewpoint of When I am Old. You can bet that is going to contain some farting! I am so excited!

That sounds like a lot of fun! And congrats on your award :)
