These little grocery carts. I just love them! They're the perfect size in between the regular cart and the basket. Genius!

I also love that the holidays bring out special, once a year food treats!

November's NEW

For my new for November, I attended a book signing!

If you know me, you know that I'm definitely not quite the book type. I love children's books and board books, but that's about it. I have recently found a new affection for cookbooks so I guess you could say that I am broadening my horizons! But don't hold your breath...I probably won't be cracking open Twilight any time soon.

I've been following a really fun blog called Cake Wrecks. You really have to go check it out. She basically makes fun of professional cakes. Go check out the site before you pass's really hysterical! Here's a couple to whet your appetite:

Remember, these are PROFESSIONAL cakes! Someone paid money for these!! Yikes!

OK, on to the book signing.

My friend, Becky and I got there about 45 minutes early.

Just in time to grab the last few chairs. Good thing. The funniest part was the people watching!

This was the only one I got but trust me, there were puh-lenty of other characters there. The best was the husband who was sitting on the floor in front of us...popping zits on her back! Yep, you read that right. Disgusting.

After a little shpeal from Jen Yates and her husband John, we waited in line to get her to sign and get a picture.

At each of her signings, she has a contest where people replicate some of their favorite wrecks. Here were some that showed up last night.

But one of the best parts was the good cake! She also invites local bakers to come and bring some of their best work to share with everyone. So while we waited in line, we feasted on some yummy cake!

Afterwards, we were starving! This is where we ended up:

It was a lot of fun! Now, we can't wait for the next book signing!!
