Ugly Christmas Sweater Cake

Hello Blog world! Long time no post. 
I had to dust off the blog today and post these fun cakes we made tonight to save these memories forever!

Sophia and I made these Ugly Christmas Sweater Cakes we saw on Pinterest and it was a blast! 

Sorry about the "so so" photos, we were more focused on the project than getting the "perfect blog photo" which is just fine with me these days!!

 This was my cake:

And this was Sophia's cake:

You can tell which one of us is more OCD. Ha!

HIGHLY suggest this project - it was easy, fun and full of great memories!

Happy Holidays

Finding God in the Ruins

Please watch this, it is so moving. 

The world is a dangerous and difficult place.
There is much pain and much ruin. 

But together, with LOVE and GOD
we can overcome anything.

Escape to Paris Tea Party

Last year for the St Andrew Catholic School Gala I donated a themed tea party and some of my very best friends bid and won it! 

How LUCKY was I to not only donate to a great cause but also host some of the most kindest, lovely women I could ever know. 

The theme was.....Escape to Paris!!!

Here are some pictures, I hope you enjoy. 

I just wanted to post this so that I always can look back and remember what a fun and amazing time this was. 

A memory I really, really treasure. 

Themed sugar cookies were a buttery, soft dream....

Thank you to my DEAR FRIEND KIM for this beautiful dessert stand!!! LOVE! 

Although the first two courses were delicious, the dessert tray stole the hearts of all...swoon! Every tea party in Paris needs macaroons!

A delicious and decadent salted caramel tea was served. 

Champagne anyone??

I had a few takers on that! Love these ladies! 

I hope you enjoyed your Escape to Paris! 

Here is a little party gift from the hostess!! I gave each guest a beautiful tea cup with homemade cream cheese mints! Smooch!
