Sugar 'n Spice and Everything Nice

That's what little girls are made of, sorta. These two managed to shake up the recipe a bit, but I think we turned out just fine. LOL

I'm feeling like a kid this morning and it's all because of flashing back to childhood last night. Traveling down memory lane, catching up on years and years, lots of OMG I can't believe it, we've been friends since Kindergarten, you look great, you're so skinny (definitely not said to me), more OMG I can't believe it...we were probably real sickening, but no one said a word to us. After many years and missed opportunities, I finally reconnected with my friend Yvette!! Yvette hasn't changed a bit, except she's ever more super cool than she was in high school...she's now a fab singer, songwriter AND has a BAND, Intrepid Souls!! Seriously, how cool is THAT??

I'm officially a groupie!! Intrepid Souls performed at Our Place Cafe Bakery last night, so I had a double treat--giggling with Yvette between sets and JAMMING with one heck of a band!! We grooved to everything from original tunes to Reggae to Jazz to Proud Mary!! I may even have a crush or three on a few musicians. *winky wink* I wasn't thinking clearly, so I had eaten before arriving at Our Place, but after seeing and smelling the food, I'll be revisiting and sharing my experience with you. I knew I was in the right place when the Our Place crew started dancing behind the counter and later brought it out onto the impromptu dance floor!! It really was a fantastic evening. I had a wonderful time seeing Yvette, meeting Brian (her other half) and getting to know her family and friends.

To make our reunion even more special (and to force Yvette to dream about me), I whipped up a special treat for her. Well, after all the constant BEGGING, it was the least I could do. You can find the recipes for the cocoa blocks and marshmallows in this post from my other site.

Yvette, I hope you're enjoying a big mug of hot chocolate this morning. Thanks for making me smile my friend!! See you soon.

Happy Valentine's Day everyone!! xoxo
