Soooo... my youngest child is in school all day. That happened. FOR REAL. I didn't even wake up from this dream and find that she was still 2 years old and trying to cut my hair "like a princess" while I was sleeping. IT'S AMAZING!!!!!!

And weirdly... so sad at the same time. I feel like I never see her anymore! After years of having a little buddy - she's got HER OWN FRIENDS NOW?! WHAT?! She drew a picture of herself sitting in a chair at school and it kind of broke my heart just a little bit. You know... in a way that only a trip to Target can fix.

Garden Wedding Color Palette and Icing Formulas

I used Chefmaster brand food coloring for all of these formulas.

I went to a wedding last weekend in a garden. It was beautiful. The flowers were beautiful. The bride was gorgeous. And my children...well...to be perfectly honest...my children we're actually unbelievably amazing. That NEVER happens. Especially at the end of a summer vacation in which they are squished together because we are remodeling forever and it will never ever be done for a hundred years. (Or so it would seem.)

You guys.

When I make different colors with the same ratios (like the greens above), I usually make the darkest color first. Then I add some of the darker colored icing into a bowl of fresh white icing to make a lighter version of the same icing.

Christmas in July Sugar Cookie Celebration

Learn how to make some tropical Santa decorated sugar cookies with this royal icing cookie decorating tutorial!!  

If blogs had Christmas specials...this would be it. It would start with a dark, snowy night that cuts inside to a warm kitchen where a smartly dressed female actor (who is clearly just pretending to be me...because let's be honest, I've never been smartly dressed in my life...) is patiently and sweetly decorating Christmas cookies with her adorably well-behaved children. (More creative license...you can be sure of that. 😂😂)

One of those sweet little angel faces looks up and asks, "Mommy, was our coat closet always full of cookie cutters?"

The clearly-has-it-all-together-mother-impersonators stares off into the middle distance and says, "Let me tell you a story..."

If you've known me for longer than seven seconds, you might be vaguely aware that SUGAR is kind of a thing at my house. I did one of those "sugar diets" once -- you know, where you pretend like you can go an entire 30 days without eating any added sugars. I was mighty proud of myself when I made it to 10am on the first day. MY-TEE PROUD.
