Congratulations Aaron and Timmers!

These are my friends Aaron Bear and Timmers.
Okay, their real names are Aaron and Timothy, 
but they prefer to be called Aaron Bear and Timmers.
Okay, it's just me
...and their mom too...
who prefers to call them Aaron Bear and Timmers.
Anyway, these two lovely brothers both received their backelor's degrees this last weekend!
Congratulations, boys!
Timmers graduated from San Francisco State University and
Aaron graduated from the University of Idaho.
I made cookies for them both in their school colors.
Purple and gold (okay, it's really just yellow...but I tried to put some sparklies in to make more goldy)
for Timmers and black and gold for Aaron.
Hope you had a lovely Memorial Day weekend!

Lemons and Limes

Here Comes the Bride!

My friend, Amy, is getting married!
We had a work bridal shower for her today at work.
I attempted to make these cookies and cupcakes to match her wedding colors.  
The cupcakes looked pretty good...the yellow on the cookies, not so much.
It kind of looked like a sugar cookie with a piece of American cheese on top.
Perhaps that's why I didn't take a picture of 'em :)
But I can assure you it didn't take like American cheese....just yummy sugar cookies!

I love mint cookies!

These Double Chocolate Mint Chip Cookies are the best midnight snack!  
So yummy! 
They're the most delicious right out of the oven!  
Poppin' 'em in the microwave for a few seconds also does the trick!

Did you notice that these pictures were taken outside?!  
Yes, it's finally sunny enough to take pictures outside!
Yes, this was the first week that the weather in Spokane got over 60 degrees!
Yes, I'm very excited about it!
