Just Favors....

Happy Sunday...hope everyone is having a fabulous day, we are having beautiful weather today, perfect for the Giant's home game later today.  I did not get any cards made yet but have been working on some little Christmas treat holders for my co-workers and students. They were quick and fun to make, I just set up a little assembly line and it took no time at all.  I even have the baseball game on, Detroit leads the Yankees 3-0 right now.  Here is what I have been working on along with a few gift card holders using the new kraft pillow boxes from WP9.  I purchased the new snowflake die from WPlus9 and I am in love with it as you can from what I made, I used it on each one.
Thanks for taking a peek....

Yesterday was another installment on the quest of the perfect grilled cheese mom and I headed back to San Francisco to Union Square for a bit of shopping at my favorite store, Britex and then to the Cheesecake Factory for lunch.  I have to be honest, this is not one of my favorite places to eat but after yesterday I may have changed my mind.  I looked up their menu online and saw that they had grilled cheese and this being one my mom's favorite restaurant we would give them a try.  We were a bit disappointed once seated and saw the menu, No Grilled Cheese! How could that be??? Well we got the sweetest waiter on the planet and he made it happen, 2 grilled cheese sandwiches with bacon, jalapenos and tomato and it was so yummy. My mom gave it a 8.5 and I gave it a 9 on a scale of 10.  The bread was so yummy and toasted to perfection and it was huge, enough to bring home and pop in the convection oven and have the other half for lunch today and it was just as good as it was yesterday.  We will go back!
