A Dream Come True

filed under: Miscellaneous on November 10, 2010

I hope you will forgive this little indulgence.  I normally do not post anything on my baking blog that is not, well, baking related.  

And this sorta is…

I just received a very special package in the mail.

It is from the lovely and talented ladies from Brides magazine.


Dont scratch your head too long, yes I am already married.  There is no new news there.

So what is so special about this particular issue?

*holding breath cause I still can't believe its real*


My cookies are in it!!!

About five months ago I teased that I had some big news about these facebook and twitter cookies.  And this is it!  


The most precious page ever, #64, contains these little bad boys.

I am so honored and thrilled and not even a comment from dear hubby like, "Thats it?" can bring me down. (He, being my dear husband and all, just assumed they would get a whole page.  I love that he did that!)

Yes, thats it.  And thats all I ever wanted!!!  

Thank you so much Brides magazine!  Your staff is amazing and professional and so kind and patient, I just feel like the luckiest girl in the world to have been a part of this!

Now I promise I wont hijack my blog anymore for silly things like this! (but thank you so much for indulging me!)

    Indulge? I think not!!
    In fact, I would be very upset with you if you DIDN’T dedicate a blog post to such big news. It’s fabulous!! I am so happy for you and proud to know you.
    Actually, I think that you being in that magazine makes ME a little famous….because we are sort of “internet friends” and all. Hmmm…wonder what my autograph would go for on EBAY?
    You are so talented, and sweet, and you deserve to be in tons of magazines. I have NO DOUBT that this is just the first of many.
    Have a happy weekend, girl!! 🙂

    I had to do a double take when my fiance pointed them out in our issue. He thought they were clever and it took me a second to realized that I had seen them before! Right here! Congrats on the feature! I’m a huge fan of your cookie recipe. When I make them for work people can’t stop themselves from going back for thirds or fourths. I always direct them right here for your recipe. 🙂

    I happened to pick up this magazine recently and I got so excited to see your cookies in there! I exclaimed to my friend, “I know who did these! I look at her blog all the time!” Congrats! You deserve all the best 😀

  • Lili says:

    I’m from overseas and I was on vacation in the US last month. I bought the Brides magazine for my sister-in-law to be. I saw your amazing cookies in the magazine and that’s how I got to your blog! I love your blog!

  • Joanna @ Southern Daisy says:

    OMG, I get Brides Magazine in the mail, and I saw those cookies thinking it was such a cute idea, and I hadn’t even known about your blog then! I can’t believe I stumbled across this post and actually remembered seeing those cookies in the magazine several months ago! 🙂
