Sweet Friday - In the Green

With St. Patrick's Day being tomorrow
I thought it would be most appropriate
to show a little green...
I think I'll wear this pretty tomorrow...
Decorate with these...
Add some green freshness to my menu...
and open the door to all the dreams & possibilities
that are waiting for action to be taken...
How are you going to incorporate
some green into your weekend?

Ice Cream Cone Cookies

A dear friend asked if I could make
ice cream cone cookies
for her daughter's birthday...
Of course...Goosie Girl would love to!
She wanted the colors to be hot pink & turquoise...
and I added a sparkly cherry on top...
I also love how the waffle cone turned out...
Enjoy the celebration!

A Sweet Cookie Treat

On a whim, I tried out something different
with my cookies...
I sandwiched buttercream icing 
(which is absolutely to DIE for) 
in between two small cookies 
and then rolled them in sprinkles for some fun...
I like the overall concept...
but I would make a few changes next time...
There was too much cookie and not enough icing...
But they looked cute all packaged up...
They might be a new addition once I tweak them...
What do you think?

There they are...my cookies...
This is the happiest, sweetest little party...
This little precious is eating a Goosie Girl cookie...

Living Your Best Life

I popped over to Decor8 last evening
(which I'm so glad I did)...
and was reading about the Blogging Your Way class
that she and Leslie from A Creative Mint teach...
byw_button_120x120
I took the online version last year
and learned SO much...
Holly & Leslie are now doing the class
as a workshop over a weekend...
BYW Road Trip
(I need to stay tuned and see if she comes to the Big O)...
Anyway she was talking about how your blog 
should be a catalyst to you living your best life...
I have to say that I think mine is for me...

I love taking time to study, admire and become inspired each day
from the beauty that others and myself have created & designed
through celebrations, style, food, 
products, flowers and just daily living...

There really is nothing better...
Don't you agree?

Makeover

Goosie Girl is getting a makeover
and I am so excited...
But I have to tell you it is very difficult
making sure every detail is addressed...
From the business card...

 to my website...
blog

To everything in between...
You pay a lot of money 
and don't want to get something back 
and go oops I really wish I could change this...
{oops!}
Tiffany from Beautiful Dawn Designs 
has been very patient and kind with me...
and I know the final products are going to be amazing!
celebrate

Perseverance

BEWARE:  This is a long, serious post...
Lately I feel as if I was really being tested
by God...
I was REALLY having a hard time 
making it to the end of the school year...
I have the countdown on my calendar...
63 more school days...
I feel like 63 days of my life wasted...waiting...
Thursday I was sitting at my desk at school
before the bell rang practically in tears praying
to God that he would let me retire early,
 or let me quit...I just couldn't take it...
and then Friday morning in my
 read-through-the-bible-in-a-year readings...
God provided me with his answer... 
Let perseverance finish its work 
so that you may be mature and complete,
not lacking anything.  James1:4

As if that verse wasn't enough...
the ENTIRE 3 chapters that I read 
all talked on having perseverance...
and finishing what you started...
It was like a weight was lifted off my shoulders...
Now I know there is no question 
that I must finish the school year...
Old timey
And another ironic tidbit...
God uses experiences to equip us 
for what he has in store...
Since I am a reading teacher...
I use a lot of novels to study...
All of my books that we do class studies on...
have to do with perseverance...never giving up
even when the situation is tough...
Hunger games.jpg
Funny how I try to engrain that into my students
but I'm to blind to see it in my situation...
God is good isn't he?!

Sweet Friday - Sunshine Cookies

What could be sweeter for a Friday
than these sunshine cookies...
These are being sent to a little girl 
who just had ear surgery...
I think they will definitely cheer her up...
What do you think?
Here's hoping your day AND your weekend
are full of cheer!

Color Inspiration

While perusing on Etsy the other day...
I stumbled upon these pretties
(who by the way is A-M-A-Z-I-N-G)
and I just love the colors...
1 Dozen Designer Chocolate Covered Oreos -Light Blue and Lime Green Plaid Design Baby Shower Birthday Party
In fact while I was out this weekend
I found more items in this color scheme...
I have ideas swirling for a sugar cookie...
And then while on Pinterest...
Look what jumped out at me...

Hmmm...whales look really sweet in these colors...

That's not what I was thinking cookie wise...
but I may have to reconsider...

Seashell Cookies

My nautical anchors have, by far, been my
most popular cookies...
So I though I'd add to the ocean theme
with some fabulous seashells...
Gorgeous hand embroidery with icing
and lots of luster dust for shine...
Perfect for that destination wedding
that is taking place on an exotic island
or a beautiful beach...
or what about a gift for your hotel guests...
Which ever you choose...your guests are sure to enjoy!

Pink Martini Cookies

Since the Hub was out of town this weekend...
I had some extra time to make some new cookies...
I just love their sparkle & shine...
I couldn't decide between the rim done in sparkle dust...
(Goosie Girl liked this one)
or the rim in sanding sugar...
(This was my fave)
So how about both together...
Wouldn't these be the sweetest addition
to a happy hour...
a bachelorette party...
a cocktail party...
or just a girls night out...
Cheers!

What about you?
Enjoy!

Perfect Pair Twins Party

I spied this magnificent party
on Bump Smitten designed and styled
by the fabulous Jordan of Polka Dot Prints...
(I have been a follower of hers for a long time)...
And as much as I love dessert tables
(and I have styled my fair share)...
I'm starting to wean myself away from them...
I much prefer this set up...
real-baby-shower-pear-twins
where everything is beautifully laid out on one table...
Who needs all those sweets anyway?
I'd much rather have at least an equal amount 
of both savory & sweet...
real-baby-shower-pear-twins
Every detail of this party has been executed to perfection...
real-baby-shower-pear-twins
right down to the menu cards...
real-baby-shower-pear-twins
The vintage drink table has me swooning with the baby's breath
and along side the perfect packaged favors...

What a FABULOUS party!

Lego Cookies

I can remember playing with Legos
when I was growing up...
It's hard to believe they are still popular today...
They have definitely stood the test of time...
But what's not to love?
A good friend asked me to make these for a birthday party
she is having for her grandson...
He lives in Pennsylvania but spends time in the summers with her...
So she is flying him down, taking him to Legoland
and then surprising him with a birthday party 
with all his "Florida" friends...
Amazing, huh?!
Each favor has 1 big, 1 medium and 1 small lego cookie
nestled in cello and tied with a bow...
The rest will be plated for the guests to munch on...
Thanks for letting Goosie Girl be a part
of your special weekend!
Enjoy and Have Fun!

Just another day...
Please!

President's Day

Happy President's Day!
It's so nice to be off...isn't it?!
Let's take a moment to be thankful
with these festives...
One nation under God...
I wouldn't mind prancing around in this pretty...
or jumping in some puddles with these...
and of course partaking in this yummy dessert...
Whatever it is...Enjoy!
