Now awarding/tagging: Anyone and everyone who hasn't done this tag yet :) 

As some of you may remember I previously confessed my dream as a little girl, was to be a dentist. Oh and the Toothfairy, she was my favourite. She'd leave me the cutest toothbrushes, stickers, lil' treats and the sweetest notes. Then one day I decided to take one of her notes and do some handwriting analysis. I compared it to some of my birthday cards I'd received. My heart almost broke when I discovered she had the same handwriting as my mom. I confronted my mom that day and she was a taken aback to say the least, I think she really wanted to laugh if I remember correctly. I felt cheated and started to's OK, you can judge me.
Anyhoots, this leads me to the next tag I received from my bloggie Dentist friend, the girl with the cutest smile (she's got great teeth) at *Notes from the Toothfairy* gave me this Dinner Party tag. One day I hope to make it out to the Netherlands and do a non-virtual dinner date with her :)
1. What books are on your favorite shelf?
Library I am not, I tend to borrow books from friends who buy one book a week. But you will find scriptures, John Grisham novels, Aesop Fables and The Brothers Grimm Fairytales on my shelf.
2. What DVDs are on your favorite shelf?
I don't own so much as rent, but I do have Notebook, Narnia, Thirteen Going on Thirty, Hitch and Princess Diaries. LOL, say what you want. 
3. What are your two favorite cookbooks?
I love to take recipes here and there from the different cookbooks I have, the Internet and my mom's stash. I also love to try and recreate a restaurant dish that I can't get out of my mind, I do it till I get it right, or till S says, "I like your version better." 
4. Select 1-3 recipes you will cook for your special guests.
i) Caesar salad. I make my own dressing. It's garlic-ky to say the least but seriously anyone who's had it requests it everytime we get together.
ii) Lasagna. Cause these days I'm lazy and it's my can't screw it up go-to.
iii) German Chocolate Cake. My late grandmother's recipe, she took some courses in France then opened up a Bakery back home, this cake is delish. 
5. What will we be drinking that's available?
Pelligrino and Non-alcoholic punch. Sorry, kiddos, that's all I got.

I tag anyone and everyone who, having read above, would still show up at my door for dinner :)

Also the lovely KS recently gave me these. Thank you, KS, you know how much I heart you, lady. If you haven't been to her blog, While We're Waiting hands off she's mine please do so, you won't regret it :)
Hope you don't mind if I hang onto this one for a while...

And this, I pass on to all who comment on this post. Seriously, you all make my day(s) with the funny, sweet, amazing, kind, comments you leave me each time. Thank you so much, you all are *Superior Scribblers* LOL, have you read your comments from this post?
Hope you guys had the fabulous weekend you all deserved!

And I can't wait until you and S become parents... because 1) you will have the most beautiful baby in the world, and I will demand to see pics EVERY day 2) I can't even imagine the delightful stories you'll have about the little one- if S leaves warty spoons in the drawer and talks for 10 minutes before realizing you're not even home, I can't imagine the crazy things you two will do with a little one at home!! and 3) Well, you just deserve to be a mama because you'd be the very bestest...

  26. omg ceser salad, Lasagna and chocolate cake are some of my favourite things to eat. you HAVE to invite me over sometimes LOL!! and congrats on your awards :D

    yeah I didn't know about Jordan Knight being gay until you mentioned it and I googled it... For some reason I always thought it'd be Joey Mcintyre HAHAHAHA! my gaydar is soooo off ;)

  27. That toothfairy story is sooo cute! I remember when I was about 5 or 6, I had this feeling that Santa is really just Santa Mom. I tested my theory by hiding my wishlist behind a frame. Or course, my mom did not see it and that's when I knew! But I never told her about it so she kept thinking that I kept thinking that Santa's for real!

    Have a fab time in Arizona. See you in a few days, miss the laughs here! =)

  28. Congrats on all of the awards love and your stories are always so precious too! So sorry I didn't comment on this until now, I think I came by and read this post but didn't comment. I missed you too!


Penny for your thoughts?
Hmm...let's make that an I.O.U ;)
