Artini Festival in Cody Wyoming!

I entered the contest for the best Martini at the Terrace Restaurant and Bar in Cody. It is a beautiful restuarant for any occasion! They usually have a Tini Tuesday and they decided to have this contest! I was so pleased to just be apart of it! But I ended up being the judges pick! I thought with my simple martini, which I called Tiki-Tini, I wasn't going to place anything. I displayed it with cubes of jello placed on the inside of the glass and it was a fruity, with a hint of tartness from the alchohol and lemon lime juice. I liked the drink personally, but it seemed too simple compared to all the hard work everyone else put into theres. I got the name from co-workers at work. They said it reminded them of a tiki shasta soda, hence the tiki-tini! I really had fun even with all of my nerves! I can't wait for next year!!

Tina Turbin's books for kids!

So, I recently got an email from Tina Turbin's assistant asking me if I would like to do a book review on a childs book called, "Danny the Dragon Meets Jimmy". I thought it would be fun! I haven't gotten a chance to do a review yet and I thought my son would like this book. To my suprise they sent me a book and a DVD! Gunnar loves me to read to him and he loved this charming story about a boy who is at the beach and finds a unique looking shell and picks it up and to his suprise the shell says "hello". Well, I wont give away the whole story...but I liked the story of how he meets Danny the Dragon! And my son like it as well! Tina wanted to inspire kids to keep the magic, the spirit of fun and imagination in thier lives. The DVD she sent me was a reading of the book with a woman to sign what was being said. The DVD will be released in mid april and half of the profits will be donated to increase awareness and support of literacy and education for Blossom Montessori School for the Deaf and the other half will go to other causes which support literacy and education for the welfare of all children. If I did a good job in this book review don't hesistate in buying this book or DVD for your children! I hope you enjoy it as much as my son and I do! Here is Tina's link if you would like to read more about her...
