Can we have a word here. Like seriously, a WORD?!

It is Friday. Which means my crazy insane week is FINALLY winding down. Hundreds of cake pops, more French Macarons, and all I have left is to dip a measly 150 strawberries tomorrow morning. Cakewalk! (It really is. Melting and tempering the chocolate is the most time consuming part!)


I’ve had my business for about 7 years, and many of those I hustled on holidays. I had good sales, but nothing NOTHING like this year. And I didn’t even really hustle this year! I suppose that means I’m doing something right, or perhaps I’m charging too little for my monster macarons:




All I know is that I did more than I dreamed this week, and kept the house clean, and went to my other “job”, and kept everyone fed. Sometimes it’s good to see how far you can push yourself! I just wish I had snapped more photos, when I had those cookies all laid out yesterday to box everything up, it was INSANE! And of course it’s all been picked up at this point today!!! Oh well.

Some outfits, starting with today (for when you have deliveries to make, specifically a pile to your husbands new co-workers, one wants to look the Valentine part, right?!)





Cardigan: Kate Spade
Dress: Kate Spade Jillian (this was the first Kate Spade dress my husband bought me. Well that we remember anyway)
Shoes: Montana Sapphire strass Christian Louboutin





Cardigan: Barney’s
Blouse: Nanette Lepore
Skirt: It’s a Wrap (it’s from Anthropologie)
Belt: Thrifted
Shoes: Light Siam strass Jimmy Choo flats

And Wednesday (yes, I’ve been rocking the Valentine theme ALL week. Seriously yall, it’s helped keep me cheerful and not stress about that huge sheet I had that listed all my orders!!):




Cardigan: Target (old! At least 2 years ago)
Blouse: thrifted, no brand
Skirt: Kate Spade
Shoes: Light Siam strass Jimmy Choo flats

And I will leave you with this….my husband is a quiet man, and at times living with an engineer can be, well, interesting (especially being as “out there” as I am!), but boy does he know how to pick a handbag! These were his choices from the recent surprise sale (minus the ship clutch, I actually bought that one), and he did good!!


I am blessed beyond measure this week.

Now back to the kitchen!

Until next time,
