The candy man can



First of all.... My new slippers....dont they rock? I found them today while christmas shopping at Target. I just couldnt help myself. I had to buy them. I deserved a present for all the running around I did today. I finished up all my christmas shopping and then I started making candy

I had never really made candy before... unless you count that one time in girl scouts (circa 1987) ...but I figured it couldnt be that hard. I had SO much fun! I made peanut clusters, pretzel clouds, toffee crunch, peppermint crusted marshmellows and chocolate covered marshmellows. I also made gigantic pretzel rods. (chocolate toffee,chocolate peanut butter and just chocolate)

I ran for 13 hours straight! My candy is put away, my kitchen is clean, my laundy is done, my shopping is done and I can finally crash. Im kinda proud of myself and boy am I tired. Thank God for my Rhodiola supplements! I took one at 5 to get me going. It really helped. I think I'll be taking alot of them this week. I still havent wrapped anything, I need to buy a couple candy tins and I really need to vacuum. That'll have to get done after work tomorrow. I am toying with the idea of stamping tags to tie to my pretzel bags... but I dont know if I'll have time.

Why do all my bright ideas come at the last possible second??


and for those of you who arent sick of photos of my nephew yet... here are the halloween pictures....

I think you deserve them. I bought myself a new blowdryer that I am going to wrap and put under the tree to open on Christmas. :-)
