I missed my own Blogaversary!!!

Well, is that too funny or what? Feb 1st was my two year Blogaversary and I missed it!! Thank you to Teena in Toronto who left me a Happy Blogaversary post :-)

We had a full day, yesterday!!! Not only was it Super Bowl Sunday but we had errands to run before we went to my Sister's house to watch the game. Now, mind you, we are not normally big Super Bowl fans but we decided that it would be fun to get together and watch it on her TV.

I had originally called her and invited them over to come watch it on our 12" a joke! So, then we decided we'd make snacks and get together and play games and watch the Super Bowl on her big flat screen TV.

Well, we had numerous errands to run first....but we finally ended up at her house about an hour before the we watched the tennis match for the Australia Open??.

BUT....who could sit and play games during the Super Bowl, THIS YEAR!!! What a nail biter!! I was rooting for the Cardinals.....basically because they were the underdog....and the Steelers had gotten the trophy numerous times, but I don't normally care who wins.

What a fun game...they all did awesome and I was hoarse before the end of it!

But....I missed out on my own Blogaversary! But, the blog is STILL two years old, right? So, here is what I am going to do.

I will send a completely different post, later today, about the Blogaversary celebration! So stay tuned, ok?

In the mean time, here is a really good snack you can make for your next scrapping or card making party. This is what I took to my Sister's house, yesterday and everyone loved it.


2 tubes of crescent rolls
3/4 C. mayonnaise
1/2 C sour cream
2 (8 oz) packages cream cheese, softened
1 envelope Hidden Valley ranch style dressing mix
3/4 C chopped broccoli
3/4 C chopped cauliflower
3/4 C chopped carrots
3/4 C chopped green onions

1. Grease lightly 11x17 pan. Cover bottom with sheets of dough...patting it to fit.
Bake at 350ยบ for 7-8 minutes.

2. In mixing bowl, combine mayonnaise, sour cream, cream cheese and ranch dressing mix. Spread over cooled crust.

3. Combine veggies, ( I make sure I chop my veggies fairly good...not big huge pieces) tossing to mix. Distribute over cheese mix and push veggies into cheese.

4. Cover and refrigerate 3-4 hours. Be sure to cool at least that amount of time.

5. Cut into bars and ENJOY!!!

Now...after having these...we have been discussing OTHER ingredients we could add on top. How about tomatoes, olives, (green or black) tomatoes, bacon bits or little pieces of chopped ham.

On the way home, we dropped off some at our Son's house and he loved them, too. Our family is going to have a little contest to see who can come up with the most original one using different ingredients.

Have a great day!!!!


  1. I just wrote on your drawing entry, but I just had to tell you how much I love your pink card with the punches and swiss dot embossing. It's really pretty! Thanks for sharing!
    I also love a lot of the stamps in the TAC catalog. I have tons of stamps, but I had never seen any from that company before. Do they have an online catalog?
    Very nice blogsite!

  2. Thank you so much!

    Yes we do have an online catalog. If you go to you can view them by clicking on products and then stamps.

    Have fun!!!
