Fashion, Food, Desserts, being a 30-something mom is exciting!

A Recap

It’s been one of those weeks. I fought (and won!) an illness that loomed over me last weekend, made rainbow cupcakes, bought more useless stuff (eeks!), attended a funeral of a friend who passed suddenly, and wished my baby sister Bon voyage.

Yeah, it’s been crazy!!

The cake & cupcakes & candy bar for a dear friend of mine’s daughter last Saturday:

Hey, every little girl needs a magical birthday in her lifetime. I was blessed to be able to bless this darling little girl with something quite spectacular! (The cake & candy bar was part of her birthday present, along with a princess Barbie) I’m all for paying it forward when I can.

I was super proud, I made those yesterday morning, and every cookie came out perfect! I suppose I shall have to find a new pastry item to master. Perhaps cheesecakes? Okay, maybe not…..I do enjoy making macarons more than anything else these days, it’s very calming, perhaps because you have to be so precise with it! I actually made them for the small get together I hosted yesterday at my house for my baby sister, who is spreading her wings and flying off to the east coast in search of adventure and fortune! I wish her the best.

And know that soon I will have a really awesome excuse to HAVE to visit NYC very very soon!!! Hello Manhattan, I’ll be there to visit! I am compiling a list of Broadway shows to see. Now to master the schedule to make it happen. Hmmmm.

Until next time,

Jules
