Friday was such a dreary, drabby day. While at the gym, my Bodyflow instructor mentioned taking her daughter to a taffy pull at this place called Sweet Pete's. I didn't really think much of it until I saw a friend on Facebook mention it so i figured, hey, let's check it out.
Wow, what a blast! I am so glad we went! The kids all got to "pull" their own piece of taffy and wrap them in little wrappers. Sweet Pete's is in a big old house in Springfield and is full of fun colors and yummy treats. Best part is that everything is made from all-natural ingredients and many of their candies are vegan and gluten free. No artificial dyes or flavoring.
I highly recommend the Sea Salt Caramels ;-)
So if you live in Jax, take a trip out to Springfield and enjoy some of the sweetness.

Hey! A rare photo of me! Too bad none of my children would cooperate...
So over at Prudent Baby they are having a pretty potholder contest. The prize? One of two amazing Brother sewing machines. My potholders? Not so pretty, so probably no new sewing machine for me. I wonder if I tell them that the old sewing machine in the photo is the one I actually use? Will I get a pity prize? Haha! Ok, totally wouldn't do that, but it would be the only way I would win!
I still think I will enjoy having these in my kitchen. They are my favorite fabric scraps so I think won't mind looking at them everyday in my kitchen.
