Thursday

Thursday already?! I fear I have been pre-occupied this week with many things, mostly involving ice packs and not talking (which never seems to work!!). Ugh, why I dislike dental appointments!!!

And have been baking, running, and living off iced coffee and green smoothies. (Bizarre combination, I know!) Hope your week is going fab! I’m so excited for tomorrow, I love dressing everyone up, and I’ve talked the husband into joining the bandwagon with something super cute!!!

Until next time,

Jules


Life Lately

Oh my, is it Monday already?! Eeks!!!

I didn’t take an outfit photo last Thursday, but I didn’t wear anything new and exciting, just spent my day baking. And more baking.

I couldn’t find a mold I liked for the snowflakes, so I made my own!

I used some snowflake buttons I found at the craft store, and I keep food grade silicone on hand for impromptu mold making! So fun!

Yesterday was a migraine day, but I did manage to throw some cake balls together for a friend whom I ship too:

It’s the Rapid Strike Simulator the Air Force uses as a recruiting tool. They came to my kids’ school!

So as I was baking anyway, when I went back up to pick my older two kiddos this afternoon, I took the team these:

I live about 2.7 miles from the school, let me tell you, those babies were still WARM when I passed them out! I love that my baking business allows me to do fun blessing moments like that!

My mommy bought me this for my birthday:

Squee!!! Now what to make first?! I’m thinking chicken & dumplings this weekend?

Have a wonderful rest of the week!

Until next time,

Happy Happy Day

Whew, long day! Let me tell you! However, as far as birthday’s go, it was FABULOUS.

I started the day with this, finding out it was being released today:

I wore this:

IMG_6339.JPG

IMG_6338.JPG

IMG_6340.JPG

Cardigan: Kate Spade
Dress: The Real Real (thank you credits + discount!)
Belt: Target
Shoes: Crystal AB strassed Manolo Blahnik flats

This dress I believe is a sample piece, it’s a size 4, and is slightly unfinished inside. It’s too big, but I belted it and didn’t take my cardigan off anyway. I plan to have it tailored at some point! I love the print though!!

My sister sent me a very special birthday present all the way from the east coast:

IMG_6348.JPG

Squee!!! So excited about that tiny little box!

My birthday present from my husband arrived:

IMG_6361.JPG

IMG_6343.JPG

So in love with this dress! Of course it has pockets!!!!

And I spent most of my day either baking (cookies and cake pops) or at kids’ sports. But even so, I was blessed by many wonderful birthday messages/notes/cards, I can honestly say with as full as my plate is right now, it was the BEST birthday ever! Hello 33, can we have a fabulous year together?

And now I retire to read my shameless Becky Bloomwood. She’s so crazy!

Until next time,

Jules

Dress: Kate Spade
Shoes: Christian Louboutin

I spent my day making calls and ordering things from various Kate Spade stores, because it’s the Friends & Family weekend (hello additional 30% off!!), AND it’s my birthday next week. Soooo, yeah. Can’t wait for everything to arrive, and I must say, sometimes it’s totally worth waiting to purchase! I snagged some amazing deals on some dresses I totally waited months on!

Oh and I caught up on paperwork around the house. My fall season has officially started and lots of baking is in the future!

Until next time,

Jules
