Sunday's new collar from @Lisa Bell!

Thanks to Lisa Bell for sending Sunday a cute new collar and leash! So fun that it is in her favorite color set. We did a mini photo shoot that included Sunday posing with her treat on her nose. The new collar is timely as Sunday starts new training tomorrow!

Boîte: makers of wonderful croissants in Austin!

Leave a Comment
I went to Boîte for the very first time this morning and it was awesome. I ordered a croissant and a latte. Both were wonderful but the croissant was the superstar. It was crunchy on the outside and wonderfully soft and light in the middle. The buttery center was not dense at all - unlike most American croissants. The other cool part about Boîte (French for box) is that it is inside of a finished shipping container. It sits on a hill and has a nice seating area in front. All in all delish, I definitely will be going back!

Robots vs Dinos: a baby shower cakeball extravaganza!

Leave a Comment
Libby and I channeled Bakerella in our latest cakeball endeavor.  It was Steve's baby shower and we wanted to do something BIG! AWESOME! EXCITING!

The baby's room is dino themed and so we thought it only natural to carry that theme into the shower. Also, I like dinosaurs! The robots were chosen because they are awesome and generally necessary!  The robot was a design from Bakerella's Cakepop book, but the Dinosaurs were all Libby's idea! This time Libby was super insipired and came up with the idea to stage the cake balls. We built a road out of foam board wrapped in black paper. Libby (of course) had black paper and yellow tape = Instant road! She then wrapped it in cellophane to make it more food safe. Libby had also thought ahead and bought fun little dinosaur & robot toys from places around town to further create the mood for the cakeball staging. Libby made a city backdrop to continue the theme and set the mood perfectly.

All in all, it was a great success and everyone had a great time. BONUS: the cakeballs were amazing and delicious!
