We have a winner for this post. Maria you are the winner. Please email me your address so I can send you your prize.
Twenty-five years of blizzards.
And I don't mean a snowstorm, although here in Iowa
I am sure we have had at least one blizzard a year for the last twenty-five years.
Today my seamstresses are here proofing patterns - a tedious job that we really dislike.
It was decided that a Mini Blizzard would really make the task seem less tedious.
Today Dairy Queen will donate $1.00 to the Childrens' Miracle Network for every Blizzard sold- another reason to have a blizzard.
My favorite Blizzard flavor is Pecan Cluster.
Sandy and Lori opted for Butterfinger.
What is your favorite flavor?
Isn't this just adorable.
And half the calories - you gotta love it.
Tell me your favorite flavor in a comment.
All comments with a favorite flavor will be put in a drawing.
The winner will win an Awesome Charm Pack™ and an Acorn Alley pattern.
I grew up in Jackson Minnesota.
Coming into town from the south there was a tiny little Dairy Queen.
Sadly I could not find a picture of the old Jackson Dairy Queen
but it looked kind of like this.
My sister Brenda could never figure out
how the people got into the Dairy Queen…
Did they really crawl through the tiny little order window?
She was sure they did for there was no door - at least not one that she could see.
It was such a treat to stop at the Dairy Queen.
At that time you could buy a cone for a nickel.
One of my favorite treats as a child
was the Buster Bar - oooh I loved that chocolate fudge middle.
Sometimes I would get brain freeze.
Once a year our school bus would stop
at the Dairy Queen on our way out of town.
I am sure that would not be permitted these days.
Sure glad I grew up in the day were a school bus stopping
at a Dairy Queen was okay.
Now go treat yourself to a Mini Blizzard - Childrens' Miracle Network will appreciate it.
From my heart,
