I am not even kidding. I have a recipe that will knock your socks off. I promise that a post of substance is coming but I would be doing a serious inservice to the 3 people that read this blog if I didn't share this recipe. I bake at least one sweet treat per week and this week it was chocolate sheet cake (but in cupcake form) with the best icing I've ever had in my life. Seriously. And I've eaten a lot of icing in my days. This icing is light and fluffy and not the least bit ooey-gooey powdered sugary tasting. I imagine it would be good on just about anything although my favorite way to eat it right now is off my finger :) Collin and I both took the chocolate sheet cake cupcakes with this icing on it to Bible study last night and we each had kids (I call them kids, they're in college. I'm getting old!) lick the icing off the top of the cupcakes like they'd never eaten anything before in their life. I'll stop hyping it up just in case you're crazy and don't like it as much as I think you will, but you should seriously make this icing to go atop something magical soon. You will not regret it.

They finished the fireplace Friday afternoon! Pay no attention to the decorations - I just threw some things up there in my excitement of having a mantle in the family room to decorate! I'll be working more on that this week. But for now, I am thrilled that the fireplace is finished and we are busy getting our house back together. That's pretty much been our weekend - except for a brief but fun excursion to the Dallas Arboretum yesterday which I'll post about sometime soon. The fireplace is not exactly what I had envisioned but I love it! And sorry about the poor quality picture - I took it with my iPhone. My dad is coming over tomorrow to finish the wiring and then it should be completely done. Yay!
