valentine cake and a lovely blog birthday giveaway

IMG_1586
My how time flies! It seems like just yesterday my daughter was sitting in her high chair happily playing with wooden spoons and spatulas while I prepared dinner. Yesterday we signed her up for high school (starting next fall)! It's also amazing to me that it has been two years since I began my blogging journey. I've learned so much and made so many friends. It's fun to look back at some of my first posts and find comments from fellow bloggers I still hear from and visit to this day. You are so dear to me and I value your friendship so much. It's great to see how we've all grown as time has gone by. I was just thinking that I will feel a bit of sadness and loss when one of us quits blogging and we lose touch, never having met in person. I guess that's how it goes with blogging.

Anyway, I wanted to throw I little party over here, complete with chocolate cake and these fun gifts! I am giving away an hors d'oeuvre cookbook full of great photos and tasty recipes, a tin box of cute kitchen sticky notes, a fabulously bright and springy dish towel from Crate and Barrel, and best of all, a pair of cupcake earrings designed especially for theUngourmet by one of my favorite designers, Molly the Pirate!

Let's take a closer look at these cuties!! Of course I had to have a pair as well. Luckily Molly had enough beads to make an extra pair. ;) I just love them! Be sure to pay a visit to Molly's Etsy Shop, you will fall in love!

So, help yourself to a slice of cake and put your entry in.

Follow my blog for one entry. Follow me on Facebook for an extra entry.

I will keep this giveaway open until Wednesday February 9th. I will then use Random Generator to pick one lucky winner. This giveaway is open to all of you, no matter where you live....well, unless you live on Venus or Mars. ;)

Thanks for stopping by. Happy Weekend!

Congratulation on your 2 year anniversary. I am always here, copying recipes, just don't always comment. When you wrote about your daughter in her high chair and now going to high school my heart skipped a beat. My boys are 2 and 4 and I know how fast time is flying. Before I know it I will be registering them for high school too.

Anyway, I am entering the giveaway. I have been a follower for a while.
