Sweet Treats & Swanky Stuff Thursday

If you follow me on twitter, you already know what happened to me today. And this party’s “comfort food” theme should make total sense to you.
If you haven’t heard yet, let me enlighten you:
My 2-year old and I did a little water time in our back yard today. Nothing big or crazy. Just a little baby pool, the garden hose, and few beach balls. I brought the laptop out, trying to play a little catchup on some bloggy stuff I needed to get done while my daughter was occupied for a few minutes.
She threw a beach ball across the yard. And I, in a complete a total lapse of common sense, set the laptop down on my lawn chair and went to retrieve the ball.
7 seconds later, when I returned to the pool, I found my daughter with garden hose in hand and my laptop sitting in a puddle. She gave me a big grin and said, “I sorry!”
Suffice it to say, it’s been sort of a rotten afternoon. 
My hopes are slim to none that we’ll be able to successfully revive my precious macbook that we’ve owned for less than a year. But fingers are crossed anyway as it sits, completely dismembered in front of the box fan in my bedroom. And hopefully I won’t have to use our decrepit “backup” laptop for much longer. Ugh. 
So forgive me if the blog looks a little rough around the edges for a few days as I have no copy/paste function, no color dropper, no right click, a lagging mouse, and no photo viewing/editing capabilities.
Lovely. Yes?
And that is why I chose to feature comfort food desserts today :)
These are the foods that I would be cramming in my mouth today should these bloggers all appear at my doorstep, desserts in hand.
Ok… I’d probably do that on any other day too ;)
