Lovely day with lovely ladies

What more could I ask for
So the New Moon Birthday Brunch went off with out a hitch. It was wonder full seeing my favorite ladies in the world. They are just the best people I have ever met. I have missed knitting with them soo much but with Monkey butts school it is just to hard I can't make it. So it was just a joy to see them all today.
I apologise for the poor photo quality today I couldn't find my camera and had to use my phone.

Here is a very poor picture of the spread we had in the end. It was great. You can even see fire monster eating a cupcake in the back ground that the lovely Jean brought her and the flowers she brought me. (well almost flowers..I can't wait)
Here is fire monster and the adorable cupcake Jean brought her that sucker lasted her all day she would come back and eat on it every now and again.
Here is the blue berry sour cream coffee cake it was very good and very moist. I loved it I still have lots left.
Here are the chocolate pumpkin chocolate chip muffins with cream cheese filling. They were good but there were so many other goodies I took all the left overs of these and put them into the freezer (they freeze great for healthy snacks or hubby's lunch they are 3pts)
Here is the Chocolate Guinness cake it was great and it has a great cream cheese frosting. I was nervous but it was very good thick and rich. I will make it a yearly tradition for st. patties day.
I also made cheesy hash brown casserole and cheesy olive bread

And this was my little take away treat for the ladies some magnetic bookmarks and a card with skittles (they make a hot air balloon). It was sooo soo wonderful. I had a great time seeing everyone. I couldn't have been surrounded by a group of more wonderful women. After they went on their way and hubby went to work me and fire monster fell into a food coma and she napped until 7 and I lay there stuffed to the gills dozing and knitting. and now we are laying on the couch watching walle and hanging out (since she took like a 4 hour nap and she usually doesn't nap at all) but it is great she has been a great little buddy today and all it all I couldn't have had a better day. great friend great food great family what a life I am soo blessed. :) I hope all of you feel as blessed as me today


  1. Wow! All those posts to catch up on!

    I had a lovely time at the brunch - thank you so much for hosting! The food was fabulous and I'm sure we all appreciated all the work you put into putting on such a spread.

    Happy Birthday, Aimee!

  2. CEEEEE-ute favors. I love those little windows to trap the candy. What a great idea. Your post divider ribbon is adorable too.

    Thanks for stopping by my blog and leaving your comment. I need to look for that Bed Head stuff. Thanks for the tip.
