Hello, me hearties!
I just called you all me hearties.
Sometimes I like to talk like a pirate.
Cause pirates are cool.
You know what else is cool?
Or at least I’ve heard that Alt Summit is cool.
Don’t know what Alt Summit is?
Well it’s this really awesome design/blogging conference that’s been held in Salt Lake City, Utah the past three years. After hearing sooo many bloggers rave about it, I am going to try my best to make it to next year’s Alt Summit.
I’ve heard it described as summer camp for bloggers and as a big slumber party.
Who wouldn’t want to go?
I mean unless you’re not into blogging, design, or you don’t like to have fun.
I’ve got less than a year to save up some dinero to go. I guess that KitchenAid Artisan Stand Mixer will just have to wait. Ain’t it pretty though? I like pretty things.
I’m also looking for an Alt Summit roomie. I want to try to stay here, as long as the conference is held there next year. (It was held there this year.) If you’re going to Alt Summit next year and are looking for a roomie, let me know.
And now I present to you THE BEST ice cream I have made thus far.
I am totally serious.
Even my hubby said so.
SWEET NUTS! REESE’S PEANUT BUTTER CUPS!
If you smiled or giggled after reading the words sweet nuts, you’re not the only one.
