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

Life Lately

Life lately. Now that is a loaded statement! Why? Well, those who follow my Instagram have seen the madness. And it’s exactly that, madness!!

Well, not that bad, but I feel like I AM a cookie at this point. I have a huge order for a wedding this weekend (which I am super excited about, it’s a cousin, so we get to attend, and it’s a snazzy dressy event. Super excited for my outfit!!), and it’s been a hectic past two days!!

Sugar Cookies:

No bake chocolate-peanut butter drops (these are TO DIE FOR!! Super easy too):

Chocolate chip cookie dough (to be baked Saturday before the wedding. The bride has a kitchen I envy!!)

Of course French Macarons, in Lemon, Raspberry-Pomegranate, Chocolate, Coffee, and for Easter orders: almond & raspberry-almond:

And then there’s the cake balls, white chocolate, chocolate, red velvet, and Kaulua:

I can’t wait to get pictures of it all set up. I know it will be amazing! I won’t share the small cutting cake, I want it to be a surprise to the bride!

I failed to snap an outfit shot yesterday, but here’s what I wore today (with an apron of course!):

Cardigan: Kate Spade
Dress: Target (like a year + ago)
Belt: eBay (and I admit I bought the same belt in like 12 colours. They were $1.50 each!)
Shoes: Christian Louboutin

And there you go. It’s been utter chaos this week, and will continue to be until next week. After the wedding my husband and I are taking a mini-vacation to celebrate his birthday and our anniversary (two months early, but who’s counting?!). Not sure where we will end up, hopefully some time in San Francisco, and maybe the coast. So many places up that way neither of us have ever been! Perhaps a trip to Hearst Castle (which I have never been to!). So many options!

Hope your week is going well!

Until next time,

Jules

    Jules,You’re killing me with all these dessert shots.

    I would love to be in your home for all the scraps haha! Your macaroons look so hearty. That needs to be in your next giveaway!

    I love weddings too and can’t wait to see your outfit!

    I would have guessed your belt was kate spade! I love it. Do you still have the link? Can’t beat 1.50!
