Get Pampered!

PC1-2.jpgHello internet friends! I think I've neglected you for the past few days. It's been quite a whirlwind of a weekend filled with a lot of spontaneity. It was all fun and good stuff. It began with this adorable little girl. She just made my day with her huge, adorable dimples. I missed the photo of that, so you can just imagine it. This my friend, Nikol's first baby. Nikol came to town for a Pampered Chef conference and I, last minute, decided to host a party for her. 
PC2-2.jpgIt was a crazy, last minute party. Did I mention that? I really wasn't expecting many people to come, so thank you to all of you who did come. You kept me busy and on my toes. It was so crazy, that I really don't remember much of the presentation at all. We had an outstanding Baked Potato Chowder, which will be the next soup I make for dinner. I love potoatoes! Have I said that before? I think I have. I wish I had gotten some more photos, but I didn't. :)
PC-2.jpgHave I ever told you that we have the best church in the city of Denver? It's true our ladies are the best. I should have invited more of them to my party because they are such a hoot and so much fun to hang out with. My boys have discovered games on peoples' phones. It's pretty funny watching them play these games.
PC3-2.jpgThank you Lambs for postponing the bedroom moves! I love you ladies. :)

PC4-2.jpgJenn and Keri drove all the way from Kansas, just kidding. It was Aurora, but that's almost Kansas, to me.
PC6-2.jpgThe girls were more interested in crafting than the party itself. They made some pretty cool things.
PC5-2.jpgSee? When you come to my house it's relaxing. I've got a comfy floor, so just pull out your catalog and sprawl out, however you want.
PC7-2.jpgThis little girl made it through the entire party without a nap. Look at those little tired eyes. She did so well and I am sure she was ready to hit the road and take a long nap on the way home!

If you'd like to order something online there is still time. HERE is the link, so go ahead, make my day and yours with a little present for yourself. It's been so long since I've been to a Pampered Chef party. My have things changed. There are some really cool things in the catalog. Most of the things that I have are 10 years old or so. I just love their products. 

Here are a few of my favorites:

We make homemade pizza often and love this pizza stone. Although, mine is older and now they've made it even better by adding handles to the side.

I have three cutting boards and use them on a daily basis. Again, these have changed and are even better. They now have a non-slip edge to them. I might have to order a few more of these.

One of the things I can't live without are these bamboo spoons. I use these them almost everyday. They are really sturdy. They've even touched and open flame and survived!

More recently, I received this large scoop and medium scoop. They are perfect for cupcakes and cookies! I don't know how I got along without them. 

I think I will soon add the mix n' chop my utensil drawer, some more bamboo spoons, and maybe a silicone basting brush. We'll see. It seems I keep changing my mind. 

Those are just a few of my favorites, that I use most often, but my list could go on and on. Do you have any favorite Pampered Chef items? What are they? I'd love to hear about them. I may have to add them to my list. :)

Oh, my, where to start? I love Pampered Chef products...so much that I was thrilled by a PC wedding shower! I would agree that the cookie scoops are some of my favorite products. Their spatulas are great, too!

I recently discovered your website and am so excited! It's great to discover another site by a Lutheran lady!

Jan- I love the pic of Elliana cuddled up with her daddy. You take awesome photos. I had fallen behind on reading your posts the last few weeks. You have been posting a lot. How do you find the time? I'm always so impressed by all that you do. You are a blessing and inspiration to so many including me. Thank you.

Niki, I love that pic of Elliana too! She is such a little cutie. I just wished I could have gotten a pic of her huge dimples. Next time. :)
