1. I made a bourbon dessert!
Earlier this week I wrote about the "23 Thanksgiving Desserts That Are Full of Bourbon" article I had found.
No, I didn't make any of those 23 things... but I did make Banana Bars... with delicious frosting... Browned Butter Frosting... which I may or may not have spiked with the Stern German's expensive bourbon I gave him for Christmas... (He'll never miss a couple

|I should've browned the butter more... but I was afraid it would burn.|
I set it up on my gorgeous cake plate (That was one of set of two of an over-compensation present from the Stern German when he didn't do so well with Mother's Day...) The pedestal plate keeps my computer up and out of the way!
|Gotta remember not to use the burners next to it.|
4. I've loved reading Kati's blog posts this week... especially "Stuff Kids Say: Part III" and "You Found My Blog... HOW?"
That's just not a real thing... well, apparently it is... yay! She had a good practice and her knee wasn't hurting too badly.
Speaking of hurting... I have a pain... not in the neck... well, I mean he's always around... but I have a pain in my arm... so if I don't post anything on Monday it means I probably had a heart attack... that's a symptom, right?
No, I'll be fine... I'm just achy in the evening... think I'm fighting off an illness... but I don't think I'll check out my symptoms on Web MD... pretty sure it's minor... Don't need to go all crazy thinking that the end is near... There's a distinct possibility I'm just exhausted.
So maybe this weekend I will be able to get a little extra rest... hahaha... good one...
Today I linkup up with Lauren for High Five for Friday... but couldn't find the button...
