- A bag of chocolate chips. I like the white chocolate because you can easily dye it, but you can use any kind of chocolate chips.
- 1/3 cup light corn syrup
- Gel food coloring. You can’t use food coloring drops because it will cause the chocolate to crumble.

Let’s be honest people. We have all has our moments of jealousy. Normally we are jealous of some celebrity’s body or that girl’s hair that works at the salon. Sometimes we are jealous of someone’s house, or boat, or job, or dog. I have even found myself getting jealous about someone’s car, but honestly that doesn’t happen that often. I’m not too into cars. Until today. Wait, wait, wait. Let me clarify. This is not even really a car. It is just a sweet ass vehicle that I think is sooo stinkin cool. Let me show you what is parked in my neighbor’s driveway:
I have never seen a vehicle like this before. My husband tells me it’s a Dodge WC-54 World War II field ambulance. I WANT IT!!! It is the strangest thing for me to be jealous of, but can you blame me?

I student taught in a kindergarten class for a semester. It was a really nice day, so we decided to eat our snack outside before recess. Naturally there were crumbs left on the ground. And what always comes around when there are crumbs of food anywhere? That’s right, those flying moochers otherwise known as seagulls.
So anyway, after recess the kids are lining up to go inside and the seagulls are swooping around eating the leftovers. One girls looks at the birds and says, “They are so cute. I want to take one home for a pet.” The girl standing directly behind her looks at the birds and says, “Yeah. I want to kill one and make it into shoes.”
People, this is too good to make up. This little girl is either slightly disturbed or she is a fashion designer in the making. Classic.

So imagine how happy I was when my sister-in-law gave me this:
That’s right… A signed book plate by Suzanne Collins. And yes, It’s real ink, not some photo copy.
I debated as whether I should put it in my favorite book of the series Catching Fire, or the first book The Hunger Games.
In the end, The Hunger Games won out. I think the book that started it all deserves to have the prized signature.
