Keeping with tradition, Monday night Kristin, Laney and Todd came over along with Peter, Melissa, Joshua and Gabe so we could celebrate Melissa's birthday (which was the 27th) and Laney's birthday (which was the 23rd).
Kristin brought a yummy mexican casserole and we made guacamole which I think is officially my favorite thing to eat.
And I made these:
I think I won this Sprinkles mix at one of our girls' monthly Bunco nights. And I finally found the perfect occasion to make them. It was a lot more intricate then I was expecting. I thought it would be as easy as opening a box of brownie mix or cake mix, you know just add water and 2 eggs. NO, this was actual baking with homemade icing. Y'all, I do not do homemade icing. But I was already to far in when I realized what was entailed to turn back. So I persevered and one hour later, with an incredibly messy kitchen, I did it! And now I want to do it again. This is so not like me. But in my eyes it was an accomplishment. Maybe I'll actually be one of those that starts to enjoy cooking and baking. Oh, my husband would love that. But he would probably look at me and ask, "What did you do with my wife?".
The tods loved the cupcakes, so I think they turned out okay.
Isn't this the most darling little dress ever? Target, why do you torture me with all of your clothing cuteness?
Kristin and I got Melissa a gift card to the movies and a coupon for one night of babysitting.
