This sounds really fun, even though I'm not a big conversation heart kind of gal. (Like to look at them, don't like to eat them.)

Oh, that sounds like so much fun! I love making up snack mixes for the kids. And I will happily eat ALL of FishMama's conversation hearts. ;)

I don't eat the conversation regular hearts, but Sweet Tarts makes some. :D What a cute snack mix!

Sounds like the recipe would look really pretty and taste good too!

What a lovely mix that could be transformed every season.

A Grammatical Disclaimer

I freely admit to consistently using improper grammar in the following areas:
1. I like run-on sentences.
2. I have a tendency to end sentences with a pronoun. (I really do. I can't help it.)
3. I always seem to use passive voice in my sentences. (See?)

I've been trying to break this habit, unsuccessfully, for years, so now I just accept that as my writing style, and since I'm not writing for grades anymore, I embrace it. (Again, see?)

Hence, I invoke Blogger Artistic License for this blog!
