Hugged My Heart #5

Here's my little angel this week.  He's discovered an "ultra secret hiding place."  Really, he's behind the curtains and I can always find him because his little feet stick out under the curtain when he sits down.  I dare you to try to resist this baby, blueberry stained shirt and all.  Look at those eyes and that smile.  It should be illegal to be THAT cute!

Now, onto the other things that hugged my heart this week:

1. AJ Otto of The Willow Garden.  I love AJ and I think she likes me too!  I, honestly, do not pay her in chocolate to be my friend contrary to what we might have you believe.  She was a major source of encouragement this week for me and I really appreciate it!  My heart definitely feels hugged AJ!  

2. Marie Digby.  First off, she pronounces her name Mar-ee-ay.  Seriously, how cool is that?  I heard her on the radio doing on acoustic version of Rihanna's Umbrella.  Her voice is amazing.  She put out her own album earlier this year of original songs.  Also, she's not bad to look at.  She's Irish and Japanese.  It's a gorgeous mix.  You can see her YouTube stuff HERE.  Listen to her version of No Air by Jordin Sparks.  It's amazing.

3. Tastefully Simple beer bread.  I actually love everything I've had from Tastefully Simple.  It's delish!  This week, I made their beer bread using sparkling apply cider.  Even with the cider, the bread was not sweet.  Way way better than the Pampered Chef bread which is always sweet, though there are time I do like a sweet bread.  However, the Tastefully Simple bread is super versatile.  It's fabulous.  I might consider having a party.

4. Jimmi Mayo's First Friday Fun Challenge card.  Try saying that 5 times fast.  This card is so deliciously girly yet sophisticated.  Love it!  

That's it!  Have a great week!
