    Happy Friday!
    I don't need to be entered in the drawings- I am getting ready to move soon and I need to get rid of stuff instead of aquiring more!
    I am sharing my recipe for Meyer Lemon Mousse. If you love Lemon Meringue Pie, you will love this Mousse! It tastes like a combination of the filling and the meringue.
    Thanks for hosting!

  7. I'm so NOT a crafty person. I really don't think I can make those beautiful flowers showing on Bloom! Can I really make that? LOL IF I win, I'll try to make those beautiful flowers and show on my blog. 😛
