It took me a while to work out what Jimmies were but I'm back on track now! Love your apron, that should definitely get you in the baking mood I should think.

Thanks for visiting my blog yesterday.

Elizabeth said...

Oh my! Sounds so yummy! Love that apron!

Teresa said...

Oh me!
Be still my KORALEE lovin' heart!
I am so in LOVE with you it's ridiculous!
I think I need to go to KORALEE Anonymous!
I would stand and say:
" name it Teresa....and I'm a KORALEE addict!!!!!!! ;o)"
Could you be anymore amazing!
Well I know the answer to that sweet question...and it's a big fat NO-Sir-Ree!
You must!
And I repeat!
Do I need to repeat myself!
okay I will!
Let me know WHERE you got the apron!
I am going to have to have that very same apron...asap!!!!!
And did those JIMMIES come from Trader Joes!!!!!!!!!
If you say YES I am just not going to be capable os standing it!!!!!
Those are without a doubt the cutest colors of JIMMIES ever!
I seriously think you need your own reality tv show!
I would never ever ever miss an episode!
And I could be a guest star occasionally! ;o)

Happy Happy Baking in your sweet sweet world. Your apron is ADORABLE!
I made some sweet petits for the teachers today, thinking about the deep respect they deserve. Friday will be the last day before our Summer holidays.
Hugs and more hugs for a JOYful date with Mr. Fire Engine and Mr. Cool Pool, I would date these hunks in this way, first Mr. Fire Engine and Mr. Cool Pool for desert!

I love the pale blue in this post, very pretty...

Privet and Holly said...

A feast for the eyes,
which is low-cal!!!
What a lovely color
combination you've made.
And the JIMMIES comment
was very clever, indeed : )

Carol said...

I agree with Teresa...Need Koralee "Anonymous"....just love the apron...and all your incredible posts! Did your talented daughter make the apron??

myletterstoemily said...

your date sounds and looks adorable, but
i might prefer a bottle of champagne and
a candlelight dinner. :) one can dream.

Bring Pretty Back said...

Karolee, That is my kind of date!

Libbie said...

no....a date could not get any better! Frosting is all I would need :) I would even skip the apron & go straight to the Jimmies :)Although...I don't have an apron that adorable & that might be all the difference:)

Poppies and Sunshine said...

Hi Koralee,

Your date sounds wonderful and what a feast for the eyes with all the wonderful colours.
I have never heard of sprinkles called Jimmies, so you learn something every day.
The apron is so sweet.
