Third is the New First

It's been awhile.  I've been super busy.  I figured it was time to check in. 

Last summer I went to the county fair with friends and as we walk through the exhibit area, I noticed that many of the entries in the baked goods area were kind of...well...easy to make.  So I joked that I was going to enter this year.  And here we are a year later and I did just that. 

I entered my pumpkin chocolate chip cookies.  I wasn't really expecting anything but ended up getting third place.  Then I entered my strawberry crisp in the dessert contest last Sunday.  I ended up with another third place ribbon.  Not too bad for my first time.  Next year I'm going to enter a few other things in the baked goods area and in the Christmas Tree contest too. 

I'm really trying new things lately and I love it!  This summer has been good for me. 

Next up I'm planning a baby sprinkle for my hairdresser (long story) this weekend.  So I'm currently making lots of pink things.  I'll be sure to post about that soon. 

And I have a million other posts I should write.  I'll get to it...eventually. 

If you still read this, thanks!  xoxo!
