Yes, I really do know the most incredible people. Seriously. Accomplished, interesting, nuanced folks. Dan is one of those “complete package” guys. He has made me chortle with laughter, tear up at his kindness, and shake my head at what can fit in his 24 hour day. So, my word play cohort, go forth and rock Stanford Law School!
This may or may not have been one of my favorite sets ever to create. Wisecracking was dripping off of my icing bag. I would go so far as to say it was total SASSafras. Maybe or maybe not a little close to home????
Santa, you’re so fly. Sleighin’ it, year after year.
Tori’s gown was structured and classic with just a touch of bling. Perfectly and incredibly appropriate. So, true to Tori and Byron, the wedding/reception was equally classy, with all of the fabulous (and I do mean fabulous) details taken care of. IT WAS SO MUCH FUN!! The food was as plentiful as it was incredible and the dancing nonstop! I was pretty much blown away by the whole day/event. The photographer was Pat Robinson of Philly; can’t say enough positives about his work!
Our girls. The youngest, the maid of honor, and Tori, the BRIDE!!!
MMB cookie favors were served as parting gifts. A play on the Philly (“knot”) pretzel.
The groom and bride each got a cookie box of their own.
And the cookies that went into the Philly themed welcome bags…
She says to me “I want to give some cookies to a sweet friend. We were acquaintances before but totally bonded one night over our obsession for the phrase ‘fries before guys.’ Our friendship and partying time blossomed after that.” I say to her “so this box of cookies is all about joint experiences and potatoes?” Yep. Some friend.chips are forever.
We’re about a month away from a big decision(s) here in the US of A. It feels like a lot of lines are being drawn. But this platter went to a party that didn’t take sides. Rather it celebrated our good fortune to be able vote on the matter.
I am so happy for Katherine- that she is graduating from high school and heading to Pitt to study neuroscience. But, dang, she is the youngest of the swim kids with whom our children hung out! All this growing up is happening! An era of chlorine is over (I mean, even Michael Phelps is retired now). Yikes!
In any case, it was one last graduation set to make. I made two platters: one focused on the nerdy inclinations and the other on her future university, Pitt.
For the Geek inside us all (okay, maybe not ALL of us), I focused on some biological responses. #nerdsrule #chemistryiseverywhere Those stamped clever/nerdy sayings came from pencils I bought from Newton and the Apple.
But my favorite was the Myelin sheath dress. (I try to come up with my own clever creations whenever possible. I think this is another Mama Mayer original.)
Lastly, here are a couple of close ups for the Pitt cookies. I have a thing for puffy cookies….
