Picture of the Week (It's HOT Out There!)

Tuesday, July 27, 2010

News flash America....

If you live in Texas....


Like were talking 105 degrees....

Without the humidity factored in. 

With it were talking 110.....or some unholy temperature....

What's a girl to do?

It's a hard life but someone has to do it....

Baby Buggies!


Ok so my friends Nick and Bonnie just had their first baby girl together.

They named her Caylee

She's just adorable!

New to the world, she's lucky enough to have an older sister named Kandace ready to help take care of her

I hope they find the time to get some sleep!

Congratulations on your new little miracle!!  :)

Baby Addison

Wednesday, July 14, 2010

My mother in law asked for some baby shower cookies:

So here they are:

The baby is going to be names Addison but they are going to call her Addi

I'm not too thrilled with these baby bottles.  I feel like they're missing something...but oh well...

And these beauties are of course inspired by the talented Sweet Sugar Belle.  Love her work.

Well they're all ready to ship out.  Hope they arrive in good shape.... :)

Peacock Party

Tuesday, July 13, 2010

So I have this friend Kim.

We met in the 6th grade.

We were in gym class....running laps around what then seemed like an enormous Colosseum of a middle school gym. 

She was my running partner.  And she killed the time by singing to me.  Not just any old pop song you hear on the radio.  Oh no my friends.  That would have been too average.  No no.  She made up a song with it's own lyrics....generally trying to find creative rhymes to go along with my name.  She's funny like that.

And that's when I knew we were destined to be great.

We weren't besties from the beginning....but she was always there.  And 15 + years later she's still the cake to my ice-cream.

I can't tell you how much I love this girl.

She's pretty much the most awesome person ever.....

Anyway, (I DO have a point to this girly gush fest) after 3 or 4 years working at a thankless job, she's leaving to get her masters in technical writing.  So, at the end of the month, she's packing up and moving to South Carolina for 2 years.

That's a long time without best friend time.  :(  I won' pretend that I'm not a little bummed.....

But over all I'm happy for her.  It's what she's been wanting to do for a while now and I know it will be great.  Even if she has to leave Texas for a little while. 

So In lieu of a much deserved celebration, my hubs and I put a little Bon Voyage weekend together for her.  We got a few people together and went out on the town, back to some of our old single stomping grounds, just as a last hurrah.

And you just know I had to throw her a party.  A peacock party to be exact.

Ok, I'm not much of a party planner or designer or anything.

But it's the thought that counts right?

Oh I am also not a fantastic cake decorator.  The cake was a nightmare.... it was delicious tho.  And that's all that matters to us.  :)

And naturally there had to be cookies:

Ah well....

It was an entertaining weekend.

Kimby.... I love you and I will miss you till you return to Texas again.  :)

The Dreaded Icing Hand!!!

Friday, July 9, 2010

I wanted to take a brief moment with you to discuss a matter that is very dear and close to my heart.  A terrible affliction that, at some time or other, afflicts every cookier.

Americolor Infectus Manos

Also known as THE DREADED ICING HAND!.....


This serious malady is inflicted upon the best of us....even the most tidy of us...at one point in time.

The staining..

oh, the intolerable staining....

If you or your loved ones are avid cookiers, please be on the lookout for signs and symptoms of an infection.  Such as:

>  Discoloration of the fingers or, in drastic cases,....the palms.
>  Inability to handle white clothing without it resulting in tears and/or various expletives whilst standing in front of the washing machine with Shout.
Sudden affinity for soap
>  And in the most extreme cases, usually spotted in fervid icing consumers, staining of the tongue and/or teeth:

If this sounds all too familiar...  Remember, your not alone.  There is help available...

I think...

if not there probably should be....

I'll Give You $50 If.....


I'll give you $50 if you can guess what I was up working on all night.

Ok.  No I won't.  I don't have that kind of cash laying around.

But I will be extremely impressed.

You'll earn street cred.

Big time.

Here's a hint:

 Please excuse the poor lighting.  It was late.  It was dark.  I was tired! *sigh*

Any ideas?


It relates to the topic of tomorrows post....

Still nothing?

*sigh*...well if I have to hold your hand through the whole thing...

Here's a teaser:

It's all for a special someone I know...who I love to death.  Who is coming over tonight.  For a little fiesta at my pad.  With a few of our mutual peeps.

Details coming soon.  :)

Happy guessing!
