Marshmallow Pops & an Award

I can't seem to get back into blog-mode since we got back from vacation. Sigh. Does anyone else feel that way?? I have many things to blog about, but just can't seem to get my act together. Not a good way to start out the new year..

I just love this sprinkled-covered-marshmallow-eating face:


We made the cutest little candy covered marshmallow pops for Noah's MDO Christmas party, and boy did he love them. We had a few extras left over, so I placed them on the kitchen counter in a cute Christmas-y jar. As soon as Noah spotted them, they were long gone. The pops were so cute and super easy to make. Found the recipe here.


The possibilities are endless with these marshmallow pops. Sprinkle some pink or red on them and, voila, you have Valentine's pops!

On another note, The Trendy Blog Award has been floating around lately, and two very sweet ladies, Mandy and Khara, passed it along to me. I feel so honored! Thanks for thinking of me. I don't normally post/pass on awards {certainly not because I don't appreciate them}, but I just thought I'd go ahead and pass this one on because I'd like to recognize some people who I think have pretty trendy blogs too. :)

It is almost impossible for me to pick, so I'm breaking the rules {sorry!} and picking 15 people to give the award to {in no particular order}:
Kate-- See Kate Sew

I could have named so many other blog I love to read and visit everyday, but I think I was pushing it with fifteen. Oops. :)

Now... all you have to do to receive this award:
1. Post about your award
2. Pass it along to 10 other trendy bloggers.
3. Leave a link to the Trendy Blog Button so they can grab it. {here is the link}

Have a lovely day friends!

Don't blame you about not being in blog mode. I always feel slightly unorganized for about a week or so. It takes a while to get back in the swing of things after a vacation!
So glad you're passing the award around! Oh and those marshmallow pops look delicious!

i am feeling the same way about blogging...getting back into it slow...but i am working on my tax information for two little tots, so that is taking up a lot of my time!

jillian sara said...

yayyyy!!!!! Libby you are awesome. SO I would say trendy is the last word I would use to describe my blog. lol. Thanks for all the advice that you give me for my blog. One of my New years resolutions is to put more effort into my blog. I love doing it, it makes me happy so I should put more into it. This has really motivated me to do more with it. :)

I have that same problem with blogging after a vacation or holiday. I too have plenty of posts I could write but I don't have the motivation. Also Hailey is pretty sick and I feel like I am catching it. So don't feel bad if you don't get around to blogging!

I love those marshmellow pops! So cute :)

I will post it later today! Love it!
