Sunday my sweet baby turned 2! We decided to have her party on Saturday at the Jumpy Place (a bounce house in New Braunfels) The theme was Minnie Mouse. I know... BIG surprise considering we are all about Disney and Han has been 2 times already and she is only 2 years old ha! I thought that by having her birthday at the Jumpy Place that it would give me a little time off from making a ton of decorations.....wrong! I of course kept adding and adding to the list of decor I was to make and well.... Let the pictures tell it all ;)
Here are the party favors....Inside the bags were red and white cake pops
Minnie Mouse cupcakes and Cookies
Minnie Mouse Topiaries
The birthday Girl!
It turned out to be a GREAT day! I cant believe my baby is TWO! Time really does fly so fast!
This past weekend my husband told me "get Han dressed, I wanna go on a picnic". We loaded up the car and headed down River Road, which is a pretty little winding road that leads to Canyon Lake. We just drove and drove till we got down to the lake and then we had a picnic. It was such a fun time to get to spend with my favorite girl and my favorite guy. Here are some pics from last weekend...
I LOVE this girl!
On a totally different note.... A lot of people ask me about where I got all of our Disney shirts from. I got them from a precious little shop here in town called Simply Adorable. I LOVE this place! I have gotten tons of shirts from them and I even got Hannah's "Mother's Day Out" nap mat and matching dress made from them...
Every month my mom hosts a ladies group called "Chick Chat" at her house. Its a time where ladies from all walks of life can get together and have a great time of fellowship. Every month a lady from the group shares "her story" and after that I have make tons of delicious desserts to eat. This month my aunt Amy Smalley came to speak to the group. She is a marriage counselor/speaker who travels all over the world helping couples to improve/save their marriages.
We took a break from doing Chick Chat over the holidays and didn't have it for 4 months. We wanted to start back with a BANG. I made TONS of desserts and we went all out for decor. Here are some pics of last night...
We had a Candy Table full of candy and take out boxes to fill up

It was such a fun night! Cant wait till next month!
This Weeks "Show us Your Life" is all about what people make! I'm so excited I get to participate in this one! I make Desserts and Bows and all sorts of party decor! I have been doing bows for the past year and a half now but I've been making desserts and pastries since I was 14. I started my own Holiday dessert and pie business at 15 and have always had a love for pastry making. I went to Culinary school and have been a pastry chef professionally since I was 20 years old. Even though I'm not working anymore, I still do custom orders for desserts and parties. Here are just a few pictures of some of the desserts I have done recently.
Almond Joy Cake Bomb- Chocolate cake filled with coconut almond cream and covered in chocolate
Cherry Limeade Cupcakes- Lime Cake filled with a cherry filling frosted with lime and cherry frosting
Chocolate Peanut butter Cupcakes- Chocolate cake filled with peanut butter cream and peanut butter frosting and drizzled with fudge
Oreo cake bombs- Chocolate cake filled with Oreo Mousse covered in White chocolate and Oreos
Strawberry lemonade Cupcakes- Strawberry cake filled with lemon cream with strawberry and lemon frosting
Cookie dough and dirt cake cupcakes
Another thing I LOVE to do is plan and make decorations for parties! While working at The Sweet Spot I planned all of our children's parties and I LOVED it. I make things like banners, cake toppers, cupcake wrappers and all the other party decor. Here are some pics of a couple things I've done.
One last thing that I make and sell are my bows! I tend to make more of an "over the top bow" mainly because that is mostly all Hannah wears. Here are a few pics of some of my recent bows..
Well that's it! If anyone has any questions or would like to place an order for something dont hesitate to leave me a comment of email me!
