 After quite the unexpected hiccup in Sally’s Baking Addiction online world this week, I am happy to announce that I have successfully upgraded servers.  I sincerely apologize for any inconvenience, page errors, missing links, and black holes you may have experienced the past two days.  What a headache!

If you notice and bumps or missing comments, photos, links or recipes due to the server upgrade, give me a shout and we’ll do what we can to have it fixed right away.

Off for a weekend of holiday decorating with the family.  I’ll be back on Monday with… you guessed it… another cookie recipe!  And a continuation of my Bites To Grow Your Blog Series shortly after. :)

 

 

What are your weekend plans?

    My puppies were beggin for turkey as well. It’s so hard to eat when you have those big black eyes staring at you the whole time!

    YAY! for the server being done. Now I can try out those Confetti Cookies tonight!

    Aww, cute dogs! Mine give me that same look, “Please? Can I have some food too?” Can’t resist the big brown eyes!
    ‘Tis the season for cookies, I’ve got a list of cookies I want to bake, lol! I am not a fan of cake, but surprisingly I love cupcakes! Have a great weekend.

    LOVE the running shirt! I ran the Twin Cities Marathon 10K in October and saw it at the Expo. The funny part is that the race was on my birthday, and my sister had made me birthday cupcakes the day before. So, of course, I brought one with me to the race and ate it right before the gun went off. It was fantastic.

    That shirt described my day perfectly. :)

    Can’t wait to see the next post of your Bites To Grow Your Blog series on Monday!

      Ali! I loved reading your little story! Congrats on the 10K girl! And Happy belated birthday – cupcakes have fueled my workouts in the past. Sugar rush! Love it. I’ll be posting that “blogging” post later in the week next week!

    Girl I feel your pain with the migration and all what you went through. A necessary evil but hopefully it’s all behind you now! Love that Run Happy tshirt and your cute pink A&F hoodie…looks so snuggly on a crisp fall day. And I hope your day today is much calmer :)

      MUCH calmer, Averie! Everything seems to be fixed and I can respond to these comments now.
