Hannah's Minnie Mouse Birthday!

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!

My Loves!

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...

Chick Chat!

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

What Im Makin' these days!

Show Us Your Life with Kelly's Korner
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!
