A week of work & girly time in Asheville

Balloons

This past week has been full of fun girly-time, balloons, baking, tons of website work, and more wonderful food than my butt wants to think about. I had so much fun hanging with Amanda, Kippy, and the rest of the Bake It Pretty crew while we worked on the new website, getting it ready for a big relaunch. It definitely wasn't all work, we took a lot of breaks to watch bad TV, go see really bad movies, visit the Biltmore estate, and oh, did I mention eat? The homemade pickles and Scotch Continue Reading

Ladies, gird your loins and ovaries, there are cute kid pictures ahead! Saturday I joined a bunch of awesome girls at my friend Casey's house to celebrate our friend Laurel getting knocked up for the second time. Yayyyy! It's a girl! Look at that crafty banner! I love the name she's chosen for her baby girl (Kingsley). It was a fun, low key baby shower. We ate some food, played some games, and Laurel opened all her gifts. I won the game where you get to steal people's clothespins if they Continue Reading

Congrats Cassie and Bobby

Sunday I went to the most highly-attended baby shower ever, Cassie and Bobby's. The food was great, the guests all got along and were entertaining.

I had really been looking forward to making Cassie something as a gift (I hate buying off registries but not everyone appreciates a goofy handmade item) since she is one of my Continue Reading

Road trip!

Roxy the world famous Doxie! I love this little dog, she is such a snuggle bug. Genevieve and I had a totally awesome girly weekend! First we ventured out on the metro and went to the Adams-Morgan area of DC to hit up Meskerem, which is an awesome Ethiopian restaurant. The metro was having all kinds of issues and delays and we had to walk pretty far in the cold, but we finally made it! It was like a little exploring adventure. We killed some sambosas, mango drinks and had a big Continue Reading

Happy New Year!

Yum yum yum. We have here some of the delicious food Mary and I whipped up for a little New Years Day vegan brunch we threw yesterday. Homemade granola, black eyed pea salsa, tons of fruit, muffins, scones, oh my! Altogether around 20 people showed up including some very cute kids. I think Max was showing everyone his belly covered in (temporary of course) tattoos right here. It was a gorgeous day and we were able to leave the windows open and let a breeze blow through. I think everyone Continue Reading
