Treat of the Week for Work: Lemon Blueberry Scones and for my bestie! :)

I profusely apologize, to whoever you are, reading this blog, because I didn't post yesterday! I know, I've tried to be pretty good about updating daily and baking daily, but yesterday was just a no go. I struggled throughout the day to stay awake- even at work! The worst part is that these days I'm interacting with people in a one-on-one sort of way- doing interviews! So, yawning about 3 minutes into an hour-long interview doesn't exactly set the right tone for people who are volunteering their time. But, everybody's going to have those days every once in a while, so again I'm sorry and I hope you'll forgive me as I share these light and fluffy, delightful lemon-blueberry scones.
Also, a few days ago I sent in a photo from this blog to, a site that shows off various pictures of food from bloggers and other sites. They said that any pictures that got chosen would be put up within 48 hours, so by this morning I had sort of lost hope that I would get a spot on this beautiful site, but lo and behold- at 9:55 this morning my picture was up there! If you want to go take a look, search for this web-link, or the Rhubarb Apple Crisp I made on Sunday.
