I don't remember where I found this recipe. But I used it last night at a holiday party. Such fun times!

Blue Cheese Stuffed Pears Wrapped in Prosciutto

Pears, cored & sliced
Small container crumbled Blue cheese (won't use all)
Non-fat yogurt (8oz but won't use all)
Prosciutto, sliced thin, cut into strips

Combine blue cheese & yogurt. Should be thick enough to smear onto the pear slices. Wrap with a slice of prosciutto. Serve immediately.

Came up with a way to hang up the cards we get this year! I like it. It's easy to put up, easy to take down.

A picture of Peanut Mark drew to make light of Peanut going blind. It's pretty cute!

The keepsake box is complete. It was a lot of work, but worth it. I might make more, to sell on Etsy. But I haven't made up my mind.

Well my little furry friend is perminantly blind. It's an illness called SARDs. We both have some adjusting to do, but we will be fine.

Sorry I haven't posted the finished product of the keepsake box. I've noticed recently that my best furry friend has been acting a little funny he has been running into things and completely missing steps. He has been more snuggly (not that I'm complaining), and when I took him to my parents he was very confused. As if he didn't know where he was.

So being concerned that he was going blind, I took him to the vet. My vet said his retinas were degenerating. So they gave me the number to a doggy eye doctor to take Peanut to for further testing.

I'm hoping that they have an answer as to why he lost his sight. Or if anything can be done. So fingers crossed, he has an appointment tomorrow.

Here is another progress shot of the keep sake box. I need to smooth out some places and add another coat of gold paint, but it's getting there.

So I decided to make a book into a keep sake box for Mark's neice for Christmas. Why start now? Because it's time consuming, and fun!

Here it is, in progress. I've glued the book together, but not the cover.

I will keep you posted on how it turns out.

I ordered this iphone charger a while back. Like almost 2 months ago! Well it finally showed up. I will say it was wrapped nicely, and is super cute. So it was worth the wait. Just if you happen to find one to order, expect a long wait.

So yesterday I went to Hershey PA for the Grooming Expo. It's all about dog grooming and stuff. I bought some new scissors, but refrained from buying bows. Why?

Because I can make my own.

I bought some ribbon and paper flowers at Michaels, and set to work.

Not too shabby!

Now I don't have to do this, but I want to.

Check my latest, and probably my last, purchase from Well, not my last, but it's going to be a while before I shop for myself again. Just cause the holidays are fast approaching, and I need to save money.

It's a Courtney Kaye hematite and gold bow ring. It was $30, and I could not say no. I love it! I feel so stylish wearing it. Ha ha ha

Woke up today feeling a little down and out. We all have rough days and so I decided to do a little retail therapy. I stopped in at Sephora to pick up one item. I got 6 items and spent 100 bucks. One item was this perfume solid by Tocca, and the fragrance I picked up was Cleopatra. It smells lovely and exotic.

But when I opened the packaging there was a message inside. It turns out, it was just what I needed to lighten my mood.

So I have been searching, high and low for a place that sells this doggie ice cream called Sweet Spots. I finally found them at a local Pet Value.

I think Peanut really liked it.....

Best. Salad. Ever!

I took a pic of the recipe, and I'm sharing it with you. I had issues finding the buttered toffee cashews, but plain ones are good with it too.
