Sweets and The Pioneer Woman

First let me say I lost my camera and Hubs had to find it for me.  So I delayed doing this post. 

Back in November Ree had a giveaway to The Lodge on her blog.  Well like everything she gives away I submitted my comment to be a lucky winner.  Well guess what? Fate had plans that day because I no sooner hit the submit button and my friend Julie sent me a text and wanted to know if I would like to go to this baking party.  Well duh??  Who wouldn't??  I was so excited to tell everyone I was going to The Lodge.  Woohoo!!!

We headed over to Ree's last Saturday morning. First stop I meet Gina a winner from the Sushi party at The Lodge, she is great.  Then on to The Lodge to see Ree and meet some of the most wonderful women.  I had a blast.  We had an amazing Seafood Salad for lunch prepared by Chefs Lia and Tiffany, then it was decorating cookies with Bridget.  She is awesome I love her hair so curly.

We then had  to rest and chat.  Decorating cookies is hard work. Next was a  truffle and toffee making class.  Chocolate how could you go wrong?  Had a really great dinner and got to come home with little goody bags of toffee, truffles and the cookies we decorated.  Oh and we all got a little tub full of things for our own cookie making experience.

This is one event that rates at the top of my list. 

Of course no visit would be complete without meeting this guy.


  1. It was so nice to meet you!!! That was the most fun I've ever had cookie decorating....and the most NERVOUS I've ever been cookie decorating! ;)

  2. Can I just say....jealous. lol. So glad you got to go and had such a fun, memorable time. Thanks for sharing. Blessings, SusanD

  3. What fun! Her blog is what made me think it would be fun to start one of my one to record memories. And I can't go wrong with chocolate!
