So long, Farewell, Auf Wiedersehen


My bags are packed. Mostly. The important stuff has been tucked away and the rest will happen later today. I'm so filled with excitement about this trip. Thank you Sweet Hubby for giving me the opportunity of a lifetime and for spoiling me so much. Thank you for being so blinded by my charm that you actually think I'm worth it.

Some quick randomness before I leave for Omaha. This newest Somerset magazine is filled with an incredible amount of eye candy. If you have a creative space or wish you did, then this is worth every penny.

This is my new best friend. She actually arrived early. Does that ever happen? I've been enjoying baking for the last 5 days and to celebrate I thought I'd throw a potluck and invite all of you, my sweet friends. Come back and visit me on Tuesday and be prepared to post your favorite cold weather comfort food on your blog & to share it with us. I look forward to coming home inspired and ready to cook, bake, create and just generally be the domestic goddess I was born to be.

  2. A new stove??? How wonderful is that? You know you have been "domesticated" when you get excited about a new side by side or a beauty like you have!
    HAVE a wonderful time in Omaha. We can't wait to hear all about it!
    thanks for your comments. I answered on my blog.
    kisses, Cheryl

  7. hey...i know i'm totally a nerd by asking this, but where do you get the "somerset" magazine you refer to? i've heard so many others refer to it and i have NEVER seen it. i would love to know, it sounds wonderful and i like to be in the know about stuff like that. i'm so envious of you for going to silver bella...i can't wait to hear all about it. can just regular joe schmoes go? or do you have to like actually create things or what? see...i know you have no time whatsoever to answer with all your packing and baking...i have a yummy recipe i will try really, really hard to post for you. have a great time and bless your man for being so great!

  8. Have fun. I was thinking about you earlier today and wondering when Bella was! Enjoy!

    I'm jealous of that oven by the way...mine isn't heating very evenly.

  12. I just hope that your hubby isn't reading the blog with this last sentence about your charm, because that was mean.

  17. I know you. I KNOW YOU! Jen...I have read your blog for a long time, and now I know the sweet and funny woman who writes it! You and Cammy were my favorites....I will remove your picture from my blog if you really want me to...but when I look at it, it brings a smile to my face...I see no flaws on you, Jen. Now go have a great year and hopefully I'll see you at the next SB. Love, Julia
