Pardon. Lo Siento. Traurig. Sorry.

It's been about a year since our last post and we apologize. But we're back in full force. He are some teasers for what's to come in the next couple of weeks from my neck of the woods...

We're making a few for a tailgate tomorrow and I'm already looking forward to making a few for the Superbowl! To purchase this cookbook click here and have a great weekend!

Today I kicked off the holidays with a long lunch filled with wine, yummy food and even better company. The fellow dinner clubbers and I decided to dine at Grand Street Cafe. None of us had been there in a while and on Thursdays bottles of wine are half off - so why not! We started off with the fondue and homemade bavarian pretzels. They were heavenly. I had Bill's Chicken Salad, which has always been a favorite of mine. All-in-all it was the perfect way to begin a fun-filled week. Now off to mountains.

Here's to great friends. Cheers!

The last of the Christmas lists....

As I get older my list seems to get shorter...yet more expensive. I guess it's because now if I really want something, well, I buy it for myself. :)

Below are a few things that I'm really pining for this year.

Southwest Airlines giftcard. Last year Jeff and I went to Chicago and we're really hoping to go again.

I LOVE this english cheese platter. Almost every weekend night I set out some cheese to munch on before dinner and it's always fun to have new ways to serve. I also think this would look cute sitting out on the counter all the time. What a perfect piece!

Really wanting a new camera. I'm not too picky, because I really don't know alot about cameras...but I want one. This Canon S95 seems nice. :) I am hoping if I get one that it will encourage some more blogging.

Last, but definitely not least on my list are these Frye boots. I mean come on...they're so perfect. I think I would wear them just about every day. :) If you can't tell I REALLY want these (hint, hint, Jeff).

Can't wait to spend Christmas with the family in Vail! Merry Christmas, blogger friends.

My Christmas Wish List

Perfume I am always looking for a new scent and this Creed Spring Flower is perfect for a light, airy spring time perfume.

Mixing Bowls, I was baking cookies the other day and realized that I didn't have great mixing bowls, these would be perfect and I love the colors!

North Face Jacket-for the cold Kansas City winter!

Ray-Ban Sunglasses-Really can't have too many pairs of sunglasses

Uggs-Again, for the cold Kansas City winters!

Tory Burch Flats-For work, I live in flats, so these would be the perfect addition!

Wishing you all a very Merry Christmas!
