Super Late Chocolate Book Tag Post

Sarah tagged me for the Chocolate Book Tag a while back, and I've finally gotten around to doing a blog post covering it :). Sorry about the delay Sarah!

 1. Dark Chocolate (A book that covers a dark topic) The Lord of the Rings trilogy, and The Complete Sherlock Holmes. I know it's more than one book, but all are awesome, and are among my top-favorite books.
 2. White Chocolate (Favorite light-hearted/humorous read) Hmmm, Probably Eight Cousins.

 3. Milk Chocolate (A book with a lot of hype that you're dying to read) The Hobbit Trilogy. Can't wait to see if our library carries it.

 4. Caramel-filled Chocolate (A book that makes you feel all gooey inside) I don't tend to read very many mushy books :).

 5. Wafer-less KitKat (A book that has surprised you) I'm not usually surprised by books.

 6. Snickers (A book you're going nuts about) Ooh, boy. Here are six. The lord of the Rings trilogy, The Complete Sherlock Holmes, This Present Darkness, and Piercing the Darkness. All are fantastic reads.

 7. Hot Chocolate With Mini Marshmallows (A book you turn to for a comfort read) Other than my Bible, The Eagle of the Ninth. It's not what you would call a comforting read, but it always make me feel better when I'm in the dumps.

 8. Box of Chocolates (A series you feel has something for everyone) Probably Little House on the Prairie, or R.M. Ballantyne books.
  And there you go! I hope you will be able to check into some of these books and enjoy them as much as I do, but please remember to always check into a new book with your parents guidance. Not all of the above are strictly Christian, and while they are not bad books, some parents may feel they are only for certain age groups. Happy Reading!

P.S. I had hoped to include a picture of each book, but I haven't the time. Try looking for them at your local library :) Also, here is the link to the recipe for the delicious-looking homemade Milky Way bars pictured above:

I'm Back!

Hi everybody!
  Sorry I haven't been posting of late, I've been SUPER duper busy, getting ready for Thanksgiving and such. You know how that goes :P Anyway, just wanted to let you all know that I'm back, until about the middle of December when my Mom goes in for 2 more surgeries. Please keep her in y'alls prayers! Hope this finds everybody well!

  Just thought I'd share with you all what has been going on over here. My great-grandmother and grandmother (we call them Me-Maw and Mi Mi :) flew up from Florida and Colorado over 2 weeks ago, and stayed for just under a week. We have not seen them in about 5 or 6 years, so we were simply delighted when they arrived ♥. Everyone had a wonderful time shopping, reminiscing, eating :), and just spending time together. Mi Mi and I stayed up the night before she was leaving, and watched The Hobbit: The Desolation Of Smaug, which, by-the-way, is an AWESOME movie!!!! We both thoroughly enjoyed it, and can't wait for part 3, the final movie, to come out this winter.
  My oldest brother Kaleb has moved up here from Florida, and we've really enjoyed having him around. He's a great person ♥. We hope to see his 2 children soon, especially Mom and Dad as they are now grandparents :)
  Well, I have to go. I hope you all enjoyed this short update!

For Mi Mi and Me-Maw ♥♥♥♥♥ I love you both!!!!!!!!!!

For Kaleb and the rest of my older brothers, who really DID teach me how to fight : D!!!!!!!

  Hello Girls!

Today, I thought I would share some pink-inspired desserts. Pink is a popular party colour theme, and I hope you will be able to use some of these recipes for your upcoming parties :), or just a dinner dessert. Please keep in mind that I have not been able to try these recipes prior to sharing, mainly due to time limitation. Also, I will be sharing some "think pink" party inspiration next ACOP post, so hopefully you will be able to get party ideas going for Mom or sisters birthday. Or even next Valentine's or Mother's Day :)
  Please comment if you end up trying a recipe, letting me know how it turned out. Happy Cooking!
