1st Ever Pink Saturday Post


I'm so excited to be part of Rose Samedi (Pink Saturday)! Merci to Beverly for hosting such a grand fête. Be sure to visit her page along with the other pink participants. Leave comments...we love'em!

Soooo I figure I will share a secret obsession with all my new friends. I never bothered to mention it before because it's just so - - silly - - but this is a special occasion so here it is:
I LOVE Cotton Candy.

There, I said it...out loud...kinda. Oh, you say "what's the big deal"? "How is that an obsession"? HA! See the girl in the gorgeous photo above? That's almost me (she needs red hair) except...SHE'S RUNNING THE WRONG WAY!!!! I would be running hungrily & happily toward the big pink tornado.

How many friends do you have that can't leave Target without purchasing her $1 bag of cotton candy (yes my friends, it's in that cheapo section when you 1st walk in). Each bag is a bit of a mystery. Since they are opaque, I can't determine if there's more pink (my fav flavor) or yellow & blue. Oh, the excitement of opening & finding a primarily pink bag. However, my all time favorite cotton candy is the kind found at amusement parks or festivals. No bags...just real spun sugar - Miam, Miam!!

A special acknowledgment to Daniela Edburg for being such an inspiring artist.

  4. Hi Niki,
    Happy Pink Saturday! What a lovely picture! I LOVE cotton candy as well, but it is the best when it is still warm....
    I just became a follower and had to laugh- everybody has doggy pics for the profile pic, and then you see my blonde head with Heidi braids! I guess they could look like long doggie ears...
    We have four pooches- two pomeranians and two Cane Corso Mastiffs. Lots of poo, lots of love 'round here!
    We hope you have a lovely weekend, come by and visit us we are having a giveaway!
    Sparkly Hugs,
    Tobi and the Pixies!
