Kath and I tried a bite of every flavor! I think the Pumpkin Spice was my favorite. Though we both agreed the cake was better than the icing in all of them.

If you were to ask me what my FAVORITE thing I tried all day I would have to say the Bison Chocolate Stout. It was the most luxurious, rich beer I’ve ever tasted. I went back for more… and more again. ๐Ÿ˜‰

This is my new friend Lew who blogs over at Ash & Lew Plus 2 with his beautiful wife Ashley. (You have to check them out if only because they have a set of boy and girl twins. Obviously I have a soft spot for twins. ๐Ÿ˜‰ )

IMG_6147.JPG

Apparently Lew really, really, really wanted to be on my blog. So much so that he was willing to do anything.

Anything?

Anything.

Good luck on your marathon next week Lew! Can’t wait to follow along! ๐Ÿ™‚

Once my bags were stuffed full of goodies I knew it was time to call it a day.
