Hello Kitty Inspiration

During my blog searching today I found this awesome site. It's called Celebrations at Home. There is a tremendous amount of ideas and fun things to try.  On the site, the author has a section where you can search for parties by color. BINGO! I searched for pink of course (my fave, fave, fave, color) and found this adorable Hello Kitty Party!  It's even got my second favorite color in it, green. So it turns out that this party came from a site called Charm Event Design.  A wonderful site as well! Please check out both of these site for lots of cool party ideas. w00t w00t!

I can totally do all of this with my Cricut Expression! I'll just need a little help from the SIL.

I think I need to get started. Her birthday is in December, right before Christmas...

Key Lime Cupcakes

Lately, I have been on a cupcake kick.  Last weekend I made chocolate chocolate chip cupcakes with Nutella frosting.  Didn't take pictures unfortunately, but they were sooooooo good.   I had my sights on making some key lime cupcakes ever since I went to the Atlanta Cupcake Factory with my sis.

 The kids and I went to the Farmer's Market this morning to get some limes so that I could take the plunge. So I finally made them! The frosting is to DIE for... I can improve upon the cake part though.  They are still delicious for a first attempt (no recipe).  I ended up zesting about 10 limes between the frosting and the cake.  I want the cake to be more key lime tasting, so I will need more limes next time.  They sure are pretty!!!

Look what I got!!!!
