Did You Hear?! Did You Hear?! Did You Hear?!

Shannon Guymon's newest book, My One and Only was released yesterday!! Yes... I said YESTERDAY!! What?! You haven't picked it up yet?! Are you crazy?! You seriously need to go and grab it!! I'm currently reading it and I LOVE it so far!! Just as soon as I finish it you will see my review... I promise!! I even have the casting all ready to go so that there is NO delay!! ;) Hehe.  

So... why am I posting BEFORE I've finished it?! Well... since Shannon completely made my day yesterday I thought I would spread the love and see if I can make someone else's day just like she did mine! It's not as amazing as a book BUT it's extremely yummy!! ;) Hehe. Any guesses on what it is?! What?! Did you guess the recipe for Fircrest's Sweet Temptations?! You did?! FANTABULOUS!! Because guess what?! You would be RIGHT!! 

So... without further adieu... I present to you...

And there you have it folks!! My creation to honor Shannon and all the Fircrest characters that I love so very much!! If you decide to make these, please let me know what you think! I hear they are extremely delicious and I, myself, love them... but we may just be kinda bias here... ;) Hehe.
