Munching and Lunching with Sue of Munchkin Munchies

It's getting more and more common to hear of people meeting online and falling in love.  Well, I can say it's happened to me.  As soon as I took one look at the blog Munchkin Munchies by Sue it was love at first sight!  I loved all her baking projects, the pictures are beautiful, and she is so stuffed with creative ideas I was inspired every time I stalked read her blog.  We exchanged comments on each other's  blogs and appreciated each other's work and soon discovered we lived about an hour away from each other!

On Friday I got to meet my virtual blogging friend in the flesh.  We met up at JoAnn's and did a little shopping for cookie cutters and candy melts while we chatted and got to know each other.  Let me just say she is the sweetest  and easiest human to talk to on the planet and just beautiful.  It's hard to believe she's a grandma x 8!!! 

After gathering our new crafting treasures we headed over to lunch at Applebee's, but before I got out of the car Sue came bearing gifts and said, "I made you some cookies," and handed me these adorable, googly-eyed spiders all festively wrapped.  So cute!  She shows how she made them and variations in this spider cookie post.
 Well, great minds think alike, because I made her some cookies too!  I made these to match the artwork on her blog header and she adored them. 


Our leisurely lunch was fabulous as was the conversation.  We finished it off by sharing a maple butter blondie a la mode that was to die for and she even let me have the last bite :D  It was an incredibly fun experience to meet someone that I so admire and find out they are even more awesome than I imagined.  Thank you so much Sue!

  3. Isn't it wonderful to finally meet someone who's work you admire so much! How lovely that you and Sue were able to spend some time together and to find out that you only live an hour away from each other is such fun. I love Sue's creative mind too and her amazing talent! I got a big kick out of her spider cookies and thought it was awesome that she used the candy cutter to make them. Your replication of her blog header artwork on cookies was such a thoughtful gift and of course, they are perfectly delightful. Love the cupcakes with their little pink cheeks. It's so nice that the two of you hit it off so well. What a great photo of you both.

  4. What a fun post! I love that the two of you got to meet and spend some time together. I've yet to meet any of my baking blog friends. You two look adorable together and it sounds like you had a lot of fun. Both sets of cookies were so nicely done and thoughtful gifts for each of you! Thanks for sharing the photos and your fun experience!
