more awards for me?

I was delighted to receive three awards. Two from a darling domestic diva, Connie over at

Be sure to stop by and check this lovely girl out. I swear, I have threatened her that I will show up on her doorstep one of these days with my bags! She has the most tempting, heart stopping recipes and
features such gorgeous eye candy.

The third award is from Erin over at I can't say enough great things about this witty and hilarious gal. She gets me laughing and thanks to her my nose received a caffeine cleanse. Erin presenting me with the Badass Blogger Award. So follow this clever momma and tell her I sent ya!

The first award I received from Connie was the Honest Scrap Award.

The Honest Scrap Award comes with some rules. In order to accept it you must list 10 honest things about yourself and then pass the award along to 7 other bloggers.

So here is my list of 10 things about me that may surprise you:
1. I used to be an animal trainer for various theme parks and a production company.
2. I fear touching public phones, door handles or using public restrooms.
3. I used to date two very well known rock musicians. The stories I could tell ... but I won't ;)
4. When I was a child I lived in the Tenderloin District in San Francisco.
6. My best friend happens to be my husband.
7. I studied Opera and Ballet.
8. I "hydrate" my roots every month ;)
9. I had my heart set on joining the Navy, then I met my husband while on vacation in the Virgin Islands.
10. I can pick objects with my toes.

Well, that was fun ... So I now have to choose 7 bloggers. This is always so hard because you are all so wonderful.

ButterMyScotch Martinis

The perfect sipping martini! It makes a nice relaxing after dinner cocktail that will make you smile. Oh, who am I kidding? Anytime is a good time to sip this (All right, I 'fess for some of us, slam) yummy candy treat. I even licked my glass, teehee!

Butterscotch Martinis


2.5 oz. of Bacardi Vanilla Rum
1.5 oz. of Butterscotch Schnapps
.5 oz. or a Splash of Bailey's Irish Cream


Pour 2.5 oz.
Bacardi Vanilla Vodka into glass.

Add Butterscotch Schnapps
and enough Bailey's Irish Cream to create creamy consistency.

Shake all ingredients over ice and strain into a chilled martini glass.

If you don't want to use Vodka you can use Vanilla Cruzan Rum.

Now that you got your cocktail it's time to indulge. If drinking or eating Butterscotch is not enough, be sure to check out my site. I offer Home Fragrances and Bath & Body Goodies in Butterscotch.

Butterscotch Sugar Scrub anyone?

Cheers Dears
