I'm expecting . . .

 
Yep...that's right.  I've been working on this baby for a while now.  When is the little bundle of joy due?

Fall 2012.

That's a long gestation, you're thinking.  Well, this baby is not your "traditional," pink-cheeked, chubby-thighed, stork-delivered baby.


This.Baby.Is.A.Book.


{ACK!!!}

I've been working on this super secret surprise for months now and I just couldn't hold it in any longer.

Now, I won't tell you all about it because I don't want you to feel like you've read it before it's even published, but here's a little teaser....

The book will feature all of my tried-and-true diet plans and fitness routines. 

*cough*

Anyway...thanks for letting me spill the beans.  And most importantly, thank you from the bottom of my heart for reading Bake at 350.  Your love and support of the blog truly make my day...EVERY day.  Never in a million years did I think I could have so much fun with my oven and my computer.

    Sincere congratulations Bridget! I'm so very happy that you are going to be published and I know it is going to be a best seller. I'm saving my money 'cause if you don't get to Canada on a book signing tour, I'm going to try to get to fly to one of the places I'm sure you'll be at in the States. I'd love to give my grand-daughter Ella a signed copy of the book. After all, it was because of you that she and I first started making decorated sugar cookies together :) Sincere best wishes.
