Make it Pretty Monday - Week 30

Hello World!  The year has flown by.  Christmas is over.  And, my pants are tighter.  lol.  I hope all have a very happy time ringing in the New Year.  Here at The Dedicated House, we are party animals!  Scrabble tournament, baby!  I know, I know, you are seething with jealousy.  I love fireworks, but it's supposed to rain.  So, inside we go.  We'll have some really good sandwiches, soup, salad, and a chocolate satin pie.  

Let's ring in the New Year with the last Make it Pretty Monday of 2012.
