Weekend Wrap-up

Technically, I had a 9 day weekend, but we'll pretend I'm just talking about the real weekend. I honestly don't even remember Friday night. Not because it was that wild and crazy. I think I was just tired. Dan detailed a car and got home after 10pm. Boring. I tried to watch Couples' Retreat and ended up falling asleep.

I spent Saturday decorating cookies. My mom asked me to make some for my grandma, so I tried my hand at Bridget's modern daisies . I'm not overly thrilled with them, but Grandma will love them anyway. I didn't take pics on my phone, so I'll have to update later. I also made Dr. Seuss cookies. My friend is hosting a work baby shower for a coworker expecting twin boys, and she's going with a Thing 1 and Thing 2 inspired theme. So I made her these:

The green yolk is a little dark, I'll make it lighter next time, and it'll be filled instead of piped. She was really happy with them, so my job this week is to make 4 dozen more and ship them to Colorado. My friend has great plans for this shower, including adorable cupcakes:

On Sunday, we had out repeat visit from the dog whisperer. I knew Paisley was doing better, but I was amazed at how much. When the trainer came in last Saturday, Paisley barked and then huffed for almost 45 minutes. Yesterday, she barked for 10 seconds, quieted down, and then was trying to give the trainer kisses 10 minutes later. It's absolutely an incredible change. It's like a whole new Paisley. Clover, on the other hand, needs more work. So we signed her up for the trainer's obedience class in the park behind the apartment. She'll go over the basics again and learn new stuff like "wait." I'm hoping that being with other dogs and having to perform obedience tasks while distracted will help her on regular walks. It can't hurt to try, right?

nd I'm so excited - our furniture is done! It's supposed to be delivered today and I can't wait to see it. Check back for pics tomorrow. How was your weekend? Do anything fun?

Those cookies are too much! And those cupcakes! What is on top of them? Feathers? Can I eat that?

Those cookies are awesome! Your baked goods are always over the top. You could make a fortune selling them! I love the shower theme too.
