Alright, I’ve been lame. I have not posted in two days! I know, I’m off the ball. But I promise, I have good reason! Remember that whole busy thing I was explaining to you in my last post? Well, that hasn’t stopped. I have come to the realization that sleep is no longer a part of my daily routine, it is more like a fabulous luxury. Sleep is for the weak. Arg.
Now to my point. Last night, my best friend came home from her 6 week summer dance intensive! (Remember, the one I sent these delicious treats to? 🙂 ) So, my other best friend and I being the wonderful people we are (and modest, too) we planned her a surprise welcome home party! I know, we rule. It was an absolute blast and she was so excited! It was a night of friends, swimming, laughing, fun, and, of course, food. Planning this party made me realize something: I. Want. To. Be. A. 1950s. Housewife. Minus the no rights and objectifying women part. I want to have dinner parties. I want to make delicious treats for my guests to devour. I want to prance around in an apron. Oh wait, I did that…
I’m obsessed with aprons. I’m especially obsessed with my new apron. I think everyone should own at least 5, maximum 35 aprons. They’re so stinkin’ cute! I just got this one from Anthropologie. It was only $32, and it was worth every penny! I’m obsessed with it. They have tons of adorable aprons that are fairly affordable. Doesn’t this apron just scream cute 1950’s woman baking a cake? I think so.
Found these on Pinterest. So cute.
Come on, there was no way I was going to talk about aprons and not talk about Charlotte in this adorable apron in Sex and the City. She is the cutest ever. I love this picture!
But, friends, there was more than aprons to be had last night. Oh there was dessert. Delicious. Easy. Awesome. Dessert.
My best friend and the guest of the hour’s favorite dessert is banana cream pie, so I decided I had to make it for her party! I found this amazing recipe for easy banana cream pie from Our Best Bites, only I gave it a little twist…
Next up, I decided to be a little daring and make something unlike anything I’ve made before! Cinnabun cookies. When I found the recipe on Recipe Girl, I just had to try it! It was definitely a smart move. The cookies were a huge success.
Finally, my friend was kind enough to bring along an amazingly delicious treat to share! Cheesecake brownies. Yeah, you can take a second to close your jaw. They were insanely good.
A night of my four favorite f’s was the perfect way to welcome Melissa home: friends, fun, food, and fashion. So go out, buy yourself an adorable apron, make some delicious treats, and celebrate something awesome in your life! Have a delicious day 🙂
