the shower turned out absolutely perfect!
despite the fact that our cookies were slightly less perfect looking than in our tester batch (i blame the fact that we didn't make 2 half batches of the recipe like last time), they did turn out both adorable & delicious. the alice in wonderland themed decorations - homemade oversized confetti, pink & green water vases, flower arrangements wrapped in polka dot paper, tea pots -were oh-so-precious too. i wish i took pics. i'll steal some from karen & post them later so you can get the full effect. :)
but here's a little glimpse at how the cookies turned out! pre-packaging.
i'm working at urban wednesday from 2-8pm, friday from 6am-2pm, & saturday from 12-8pm. & i'm on call tomorrow.
it only took day 1 to learn that retail + heels (even if they are your "comfiest pair") do not go well together. it's strictly flats from now on.
i think my mom & i are going to check out the diamond exhibit at the field museum on tuesday.
thanks, casey! ;)
i'm so sleepy i can't even function right now.
i was up until almost 2am last night, packaging the cookies, tying ribbons, & getting everything ready for the shower today - which i woke up for at 8:00. 6 hours of sleep just isn't enough.
