My dress fitting yesterday went really well. I felt comfortable in the dress (not too tight), and the alterations shouldn’t be too complicated (a hem and some help up top, if you know what I mean). The alterations were ridiculously expensive though (for the minimal work that they’ll take). Thanks Mom! 🙂
I had on my Stuart Weitzman heels for the 20 minutes that the fitting took, and my peroneal tendon was killing me last night. Ugh. 53 days to be able to walk in my heels!
We had some family time last night because it was my cousin’s 17th birthday.
It was also my pup’s 3rd birthday. Happy Birthday, Bella! 🙂
My aunt is a fantastic baker, and my diet went right out the window. I tried a small piece of each of her fantastic cakes.
Oreo ice cream pie with oreo crust and oreo filling and oreo topping. So bad and so good at the same time.
Basic white cake with ch0colate buttercream
My fabulous aunt J (who also made the popular lemon curd featured here) is also baking cookies as favors for my bridal shower. She makes the perfect sugar cookie with an incredibly smooth, sweet, but light icing. With tons of different cookie cutters she’s made cookies for lots of different occasions, and I’m so excited she’s helping with the shower!
Here’s a sneak peak of the favor bags that I had custom printed, along with her two different cookie ideas – one large heart (that matches the design on the bag) or two that fit together. We agreed that we like to two smaller ones better, and the sparkly sugar topping makes them look so pretty – but it distracts from the perfect simple butter taste of the cookie (at least in my opinion).
What do you guys think?
She also made raspberry and lemon flavored icing variations, but I think we’ll stick with her classic recipe. I think edible favors are much better than some little trinket that will take up space in a junk drawer.
What’s the best favor you ever got at a shower or wedding?
