Okay so I am up Friday night at 1am. No I have not just come back from the bar or fancy lounge or club…or even the gym. I have been at home since N got home. He passed out after dinner…I don’t blame him but this is kind of becoming a habit for Friday night… Anyhow— so what am I doing?
I am making an ice cream cake for Allen’s birthday on Sunday (see link below)
Well I made the cake part…need to buy strawberry ice cream, cool whip and candles tomorrow…need to buy lots of groceries tomorrow…plus pick up the rest of Allen’s bday gift.
I also found some wonderful things that I want/ want to try:
Pumpkin whoopie pies (YUM!) I will most likely use a spice mix for it though…so I will use the cream cheese filling from this site: http://traceysculinaryadventures.blogspot.com/
And the cookie recipe below:
Pumpkin Cookie Cakes
- 1 cup canned pumpkin puree (not pumpkin pie filling)
- 1/3 cup butter, softened
- 1 package (18.25-oune) spice cake mix
- 2 eggs
- 1/2 cup milk
OK– so what else am I doing?? I found something I forgot about that I want to do: Mini pumpkin pies!
AND I found an awesome pie cutter/mold/pocket thing here:
I am afraid now to go into Williams Sonoma for fear of all that I will purchase…I was never a fan of the place before….but that was when I was traveling and working and lived out of a hotel room…NOW that I have lots of time and I like to host…I am in dessert heaven.
Speaking of hosting- this is my favorite hostess blog- http://www.hostessblog.com/
I think all of this blog reading started with Bakerella…which started by reading Lexi’s blog about cake pops…and then I entered into this whole new world of great women who blog and take pictures of things, fashion and food and I have fallen into the world of creativity. Also there are a ton of wedding blogs and websites out there – it is almost too much for me..
What else did I do tonight? I found an amazing deal at Old Navy- 50% off any piece of outerwear– WOW- so I’m picking which one I want and which one I want for N – sale starts Oct 26-28
Women’s selection- http://oldnavy.gap.com/browse/category.do?cid=55474
Men’s selection- http://oldnavy.gap.com/browse/category.do?cid=5286
Now yes– I have a lot of clothes..yes I need to give away clothes more than I need to buy them…yes I have tailored made jackets from all over but who can resist a 50% off sale! not me. I am going to go tomorrow to try some of them on to figure out which one I want 🙂 goodness I have a LOT more time with this new job and I love it!!
Ok what else did I do tonight? I wrapped Allen’s gift– I got him a nice sweater and button up shirt and some gushers (lol)! Tomorrow I will go pick him up a collage I made of him and I and our family (sibling pictures!) and buy him a Jawbone bluetooth which is pricey but is suppose to be amazing.
I also tried on my new USC shirt for next week’s game- love it! it’s a sweater with a silver heart on it and USC in the middle…speaking of which I should listen to Obama’s speech today (he was at SC today).
It is 1:10am…and I am going to go to bed! Tomorrow should be more fun…I am shopping in the morning— Walgreens, Best Buy, groceries…cake making and whoopie pie making in the afternoon, Wedding location appointments at Anaheim country club (http://www.herecomestheguide.com/location/detail/anaheim-hills-golf-course-clubhouse/) and La Canada Country club (http://www.herecomestheguide.com/location/detail/la-canada-flintridge-country-club/) and then at night I’m hoping we will go out in Pasadena.
Sunday will be one more wedding location in Azusa at the Lindley-Scott house (http://www.herecomestheguide.com/location/detail/lindley-scott-house/) and then we will have people over for Allen’s bday, go adult go-kart racing (K1) and then to my parents for food, my ice cream cake and presents, then Allen has us going to a lounge/bar in Pasadena for the shirt launching of the uglymofo.. I love what he put on the website as the theme of the logo and name:
Ugly Mofo is the projection of the ugliness inside everyday normal people, and of course, everyday not so normal people. Our artwork and apparel is the representation of how all beautiful things have an ugly side. The only thing is, it’s not that easy to use a paper bag to cover up what’s on the inside. We specialize in alternative apparel and underground hip hop clothing.
Fun and busy weekend! Next weekend- USC-Oregon game, Halloween!! And weekend after that will be N’s bday and skydiving! yikes!!!
