Let's talk about the cupcake first. :)  This cupcake is THE cutest!!  The frosting is amazingly realistic (seriously, it looks good enough to eat!), and the sprinkles MUST be real.  It is the perfect size for your doll, and the mint green liner contrasts perfectly with the vanilla cupcake and chocolate frosting!  I am IN LOVE with this cupcake, and so are my dolls! :P  Such a tasty treat!

These cookies are super adorable!  They could not possibly look any more realistic.  I mean, they totally look edible!!! :P  The pink frosting is, once again, perfectly realistic.  It seriously looks like somebody spread it on there with a knife!  This is such a special summer treat, and both my dolls and I LOVE them!!!

We had so much fun swimming, playing in our tubes, playing Egyptian Rat Slap, and getting to know each other!  Jessica, Krista, and I swam out to a pole that you can climb up in our tubes, and Jessica even had the guts to jump off!!!  I was too scared. :)

Jessica on top of the pole, and Krista and I floating on our tubes at the base. 

She stands up..... 

....And she jumps!! 

Lindsay, Krista, Jessica, and I floating in the tubes. 

Sitting in the tubes on the beach. :P

4th of July Fun!


First, I have some SUPER exciting news!!!!!  I get to meet up with Jessica tomorrow!!!  I am WAY too excited!!!

I wanted to share what we did for 4th of July.  Our friends came on Wednesday, and they stayed thru Saturday.  We had a super fun 4th, and went on a really nice bike ride.  C (I will not be saying his name for privacy) and I made a really special dessert, and it was super hard, but super fun!!!  This is what we made:

It didn't turn our quite like that, but it was still really good and fun to make. :P  C is super fun to cook with, and we had a lot of fun, but it was REALLY hard!!!!  It ended up taking two days to make it, so we ate it on Friday.  On the 4th, we went and saw the fireworks, which were really pretty!

One thing that we did constantly throughout the whole time they were here was play Egyptian Rat Slap.  THIS GAME IS AMAZING!!!!!!!!!  It is a SUPER FUN card game that B and C taught us how to play, and let me tell you, we had way too much fun with that game. :P  We went on a small hike on Friday, and played Egyptian Rat Slap on our hike.  We went to the beach later that day also, and played there too!  We played SO MANY games!!!!!  We had a super fun few days together, and a great 4th of July!

Now, I just can't wait to meet Jessica!!!!

How was your 4th of July?

Cinnamon Rolls!!!


Whenever I have a sleepover at my friend's house, her mom always makes these AMAZING homemade cinnamon rolls.  Well, we recently had a sleepover at their house, and my friend and I decided we wanted to make them ourselves!  I asked for the recipe, and they gave it to me!!!!  Yay!!!!  Well, I made them a couple days ago, and they turned out great!!!!!  First, you have to make the dough at night to let it rise, and then you prep the cinnamon rolls in the morning.  After prepping them, you let them rise more, and then you bake them!

Mixing the ingredients.

Okay, so I found this trick on Pinterest.  You cut the cinnamon rolls with dental floss!!  It works like a champ!!  If you ever make cinnamon rolls, USE THIS TRICK!!!!

The cinnamon rolls rising after being assembled. 


My delicious breakfast. :)  Yum!!!  I also had honey yogurt. :) 

They were SO yummy, and super fun to make!!!!

Have a great day!

As I promised, I have gathered lots of fun ideas for you all!

Aren't these all fantastic ideas, fashions, and decor?!?!  Now I have a SUPER SIMPLE dessert recipe for you that is very patriotic!!!

Yield: 1 - 9x13 inch cake

1 (18.35 ounce) package yellow cake mix
1 pint blueberries, rinsed and drained
1 (8 ounce) container frozen whipped topping, thawed
2 pints fresh strawberries, rinsed and sliced


1. Prepare cake according to package directions and bake in a 9x13 inch pan.  Cool completely.

2. Frost cake with whipped topping.  Place blueberries in a rectangle in the top left corner, and arrange sliced strawberries as stripes to make an American flag.  Chill until serving.

Super simple, right?  And pretty cute, too. :)  I hope you have fun with all of these ideas, and if you would like to see more from my 4th of July board, click here.
