Engagement cookies

My friend recently got engaged and I am so excited for her!  As a surprise, I baked and decorated her some proposal/engagement cookies.  She doesn't live near me, so I packaged them up and mailed them last Saturday. Here's to hoping they arrived intact!

I didn't take a picture of them packaged, but the bag with the frog had a little tag that said, "I am so happy you found your prince charming!"

J... is for Jax

My friend's baby is due any day now and as part of her shower gift I made her some letters to hang in the baby's room.  They are very similar to the cookies I made her!!

Valentine's Wreath

I had the idea to make a Valentine's wreath last Thanksgiving (of 2010,) but I could never find a good berry wreath I liked. I lost hope as Valentine's (of 2011) came and went and then I finally came across one at Marshall's while shopping for some home decor.  I quickly snatched it up (at a great price too) and finished my wreath over the weekend! I am very pleased with it and I think it might be my favorite wreath so far! I also may reuse this quote for some inside decor as well - we'll see!

I am not a big holiday decorator, but I really wanted to make a sweet Valentine wreath. Once Valentine's passes, our Aggie wreath goes back up on the door until our Christmas wreath.

Austin, TX Color Run Cookies!

I came across what looked like a fun 5K to participate in a few months, so I recruited some of my friends and now we are signed up and ready to run the Color Run on February 4th. I am really excited; although I have been running since high school (and stepped it up in College) this is the first organized run I have participated in.  So, in customary fashion, I have designed some cookies for the event.

The Color Run partnered with Habitat for Humanity to help raise money to build homes in the Austin area.  We will be pelted with paint after every kilometer we run and we help raise money for a great cause, what better reason to join a race?.  I cannot wait!

If you are in the Austin area, you should definitely do it!  Message me if you want to join our group! =D

101 Dalmatian Cookies

My friend's baby shower was last weekend and I was out of town and couldn't go, so I wanted to surprise her with something fun.  She is having a boy and his room is decorated with a101 Dalmatian theme so I made some cookies with a J (first letter of his name) for her!
