Happy New Year!

I had a big blog typed up for 12/31/2010 and then Blogger decided that it wasn't good enough and wiped it out.

Rather than wracking my brain for the great words of wisdom that I already typed, I just wanted to take a moment to wish everyone a


Please enjoy your celebrations and please call a cab if you need one.
I would love for you to still be around blog land in 2011.

I finally found some time to sit down and update the blog.
I'm not promising any words of wisdom, but I can provide a few pictures.

You may want to travel back into November to see some of the posts I just put up tonight. :)

Christmas Baking

I did my usual Christmas Baking this year, but decided not to do my usual menu. . .

In years past, the menu contained lots and lots of cookies.
This year, the menu looked a bit different.

(Excuse the bad mobile phone pic. . .)

Peanut Butter Cookies (from the bag)

White Chocolate Chocolate Cookies (from the bag)
Butterscotch / Peanut Butter Chip Pudding Cookies
Mint Chocolate Chip Pudding Cookies
White Chocolate Chip Cocoa Cookies

and. . .

People Puppy Chow
Pretzel Wreaths
Cake Balls - Spice w/ White Chocolate and Yellow w/ White Chocolate

I decided to change up the second batch of cake balls.
Instead of dipping them completely in chocolate, I drizzled chocolate on top.
I also make some more Pretzel Wreaths, without the pretzels, with my left-over chocolate.

Things That Make Me Go Hmmmmm. . .

The biggest mystery for me right now. . .

Why is it I used to be Ms. SassyMarie and now that I am married. . .
People are now calling me Miss MBB.


I thought getting married made me a Mrs.?
And how long will it take me to remember to check the Mrs. box on those forms? :)

More Remodeling

We've been pretty busy around our Home Sweet Home lately. . .
(And I'm not the only one now snapping pictures.)
Yep, we're now working on the basement.
Here are some in-process pictures.
Please excuse the mess in the "final pretty" picture as we have already moved on to other walls and needed to move all of our toys.

His Fort!

We bought Yeager-bomb a climbing house for Christmas, but he got it way early.
He quickly turned it into his fort and he protects it often!
He can usually be found laying on the top, just ready to pounce as someone comes around the corner.

Good thing he doesn't have claws!

Time is Flying!

It has been two months since our big day!
Some days, I can't believe time is going so fast.

Other days - well, MBB said it best.
"Two months? That's it?? Feels like a LOT longer than that!"

Love you honey!
Hmmm. . .Should I change my nickname to Mrs. MBB?

Naw. . .I think I'll keep Sassy Marie. :)
