I'm Still Around!

Sad news my friends, my desk top computer is dead....
The old girl had a great run, she was 8 years old! This explains my absence. I have been only using my ipod touch and the notebook computer I have for work to acess the internet. I hate using the netbook as it is super slow and I hate typing on the stupid tiny keyboard. Also I don't have access to most of my photos and such to do my blog posts.
Good news though, we are going on a trip to a magical place with a computer store so I can buy a new one! It is my 7th anniversary gift from my amazingly wonderful Hubby! Next week I will have a new computer! I can't wait!
In other news, the Hubby and I spent the day trying to recreate some cookies. My Hubby worked at our local bakery for a few months before it closed. In case you don't know, my Hubby is a trained chef who graduated from Le Cordon Bleu. He doesn't cook for a living anymore, but he is still an amazing chef. These cookies were famous. Big sugar cookies with glaze and goofy frosting faces. They were known as "face cookies", of course. My Hubby was promised the recipie, but didn't get it when the bakery closed. We researched and found a cookie we thought was close, made a few modifications. Next came frosting research. We found a glaze that needed a lot of modifications and then the perfect frosting recipie for the faces and ta da!
We nailed it! They taste amazing!
Look for my welcome back blog post when I get my new computer!
