Happy Two-Year Blog Anniversary and a Giveaway!

Today is our two year blog anniversary. Yay! It all started with a post about Bountiful deer eating all our tulips.

(Update: The deer nibble our tulips, until they taste the cayenne pepper/paprika/chili powder combo!)

  3. my favorite posts are anything from Pasty Wednesdays for reasons you probably know. i love food, desserts, & anything in between. your blog is awesome & so cute! love you!

  4. I enjoyed your post about dipping chocolates. Fun day, fun workers (Val, Wnter, Lee, Kaitlyn), fun conversation and fun eating. Life does not get much better than that! Winter - you are a good photographer and the composition of your pages is very artistic.

  5. I would have to say that any Lars related post tickles my fancy. :) Go Lars & Co!!!

  7. I actually really loved the post where Winter re-proposed with the fish. Why? Because it's so... random! and weird! And so... WINTER! (Lee, I don't know your personality, 'cept for what I read on the blog, but I'm sure it's very "YOU," too. :D) Oh, and I can't forget about the post where you saw a live QUIDDITCH MATCH!!!
