Recent things I'm excited/obsessed about

1) My 8-week photography class that starts tonight! Linda and I are taking it together through the City of Milwaukee Recreation Department. I hear it's a pretty decent class, so I'm super excited about it. Don't be surprised if you're bombarded with pictures over the next 8 weeks!

2) Cream cheese butter mints. These are sooo yummy. They melt in your mouth and are seriously deeeeelicious!

3 oz cream cheese, softened
1 Tbsp butter, softened
3 cups powdered sugar (I use a little more...1/4-1/3 cup more otherwise they're too sticky)
1-2 drops peppermint oil
food coloring paste

Mix the cream cheese, butter and sugar together in mixer. Add oil and coloring. Roll into balls, press down with a fork dipped in powdered sugar. Let dry 2-4 hours on wax paper. Fridge or freeze.

3) Bath and Body Works' Wallflowers in "Leaves." Smells sooo good! Perfect for fall. Love it.

4) Fall TV! Survivor, Amazing Race, ER, The Office, they're all coming back! All, except for Las Vegas. So sad. No more dates with Josh Duhamel on Friday nights. They always cancel the good ones. Although Derrick (and probably everyone else) will disagree, saying it was a dumb show. What do they know?

I love those cream cheese mints. I even had them at my wedding reception, if you remember. Mmmm. Tasty. Now I want to go make some, but I don't have any mint extract. That is kindof a neccessary ingrediant.

Those mints look delicious - I'm going to have to try them...sorry about your Peter Breinholt trauma...Jon had some trauma related to him as well, that's why he wasn't even invited to the concert!

Those mints were to die for. And I think I'm going to have to try out your new scent from BBW, I love the wallflowers.

We're still on for tomorrow morning sewing?
