Valentine Party and Giveaway Winner and Diet Challenge

Alexis and the boys were patiently waiting for our little Valentine party to begin.

I made Rice Krispie treats and cut them with my lip shaped cookie cutter. I got tubes of gel frosting and let them decorate their lips.

Needless to say, gel frosting was every where; on their clothes, their little faces, and on the seat cushions to my bar stools. It was messy, but they had fun.

For dinner we had something quick and easy. I made my Chicken Pot Pie and a few of their favorite side dishes.

I had some left over dough for the crust, rolled it out, and cut out a heart. Alexis was the only person that noticed it. If you want the recipe I have it listed on my sidebar. It's named Nell's Chicken Pot Pie.

My new heart shaped cake pan Steve gave me for Valentine's Day really made a pretty cake.

It must have been good because it's almost gone!


Now it's time for the giveaway.

I printed all of the people that left me a comment before midnight.
I put them in my heart shaped cookie jar.

Then I stirred them around and put the lid on the cookie jar.

I shook and shook as hard as I could. Then I opened the lid and Alexis drew a name.

Hmm. I wonder who it could be?

Congratulations, Rachel!

Here are the Rice Krispie Lips!

E-mail me your address and I'll send the pattern to you.

Thanks, everyone, for being a part of my Valentine celebration. I love you all, and I mean that from the bottom of my !


Now for my Monday's Diet Challenge report. This month has been challenging for me, to say the least. During the ice storm I had to eat whatever I could find, and some times it wasn't so healthy.

Although I have gone in the wrong direction, as of today, I have made a big U-turn and am trying my best to get back on track. Good luck to everyone who is making an effort to get healthier!
