Picture Post to Play Catch Up

Here is the beginning of the Valentine's / Cooking / Craft Chaos that happened at our house this week. Here are some of the plates of sweets that Jenny made for her friends, family and coworkers. I got to taste test, but my favorite are the Oreo balls that she coats in white chocolate and then drizzled with pink chocolate!

And here are the gift bags that Minnie made for her 4-legged friends. We had 10 bags in total.

Here are all the Cupid's Crush Cookies that we made from the 3 Dog Bakery cookbook. I had to do some tweaking to the recipe to get them to work. They were supposed to be rolled into balls and then pressed with a spoon on the cookie sheet. Mine were the consistency of cake batter, so I think I'll try and call the bakery to see if there was an error in either the book or the cook! :)

The cookies were basically ginger snaps for dogs. They had that same flavoring and coloring. Clearly the schnoodles loved them! Although ... I don't think there's ever been a treat that Miss Minners didn't like! Here she is begging/dancing for her 4th Cupid's Crush Cookie! Peanut politely sat for his!

This is Minners looking sad that I was going off to Trivia after I had just gotten home. I've been quite the neglectful Momma the last few weeks. I just don't seem to have enough hours in the day to fit everything in!

We went back to Tanner's for trivia this week. It had to be done. We needed to play and we seem to do really well there. We had a new team name (see our card): Adam & Eves. (Under that you can see T.A.F.K.A.T.W.S.S.: T? A? Formerly known as That's What She Said. We seemed to be sucking most the night, and then miraculously at the end we qualified for the championship. Here is one of the rounds. We got all of these right except #5. Can you guess what the questions were?

Here are the Before and After pictures of the Valentine's tennis ball that Peanut bought Minnie. The time lapse on these pictures would be about 5 minutes from start to finish!


Okay ... I've got to go do some laundry, pack and clean. Ciao! Let's hope that I can blog from Columbus this weekend. If I can't ... you have to know that it's not me failing ... it would be lack of availability.

Pin It!

Don't leave town ... there's no telling what Minnie might chew-up while you're gone!

What were the trivia questions? It's not fair that you would leave town without sharing ...

I don't even know if I remember the questions. I think the first one was "What year did this actor die?" and they played a clip of Tommy Boy. The second one was a clip of Rudy speaking and we had to name who it was. The third was whatever song Gordon Lightfoot sings. The fourth was a clip from LOST and we had to name that TV show. The last one and the bonus were both song clips and we had to name the band. We missed five, but got the bonus right.
