happy weekend + sister love

what a week! so glad we've finally made it to the weekend. I got the sweetest surprise yesterday afternoon- a package of love from my sissy! she knows me so well. she stuffed a box full of all my favorite things, including this awesome vintage stamp holder (she overhead me say I loved it when we were at paris on ponce a few months ago), a pair of "boyfriend jeans" (yay!),  some fun gum & the new xx cd (yes, we are still stuck in the days of middle school where we burns cds and then decorate them for each other). kara, you are the best sister on the planet & I love you!

backyard wedding

my friend monica got married over the weekend in the sweetest backyard wedding. everyone sat out on the lawn & sipped arnold palmers from mason jars, & chatted over southern family-style dishes like rosemary biscuits & sweet potato salad (1000x better than regular potato salad, by the way). there was also a fabulous dessert bar, which happens to my favorite thing ever, filled with treats like cake pops, mini blueberry pies salted caramel cupcakes & key lime tarts. the bride even made that beautiful cake herself.

pie pops

why is it that everything is better in miniature form? mini golf, puppies, bite-sized cupcakes, european cappuccinos, horses (any rob & big fans out there?) and pies. a whole pie just never looks that appealing to me, but make them mini & put them on a stick & I can't stop eating. I had some blueberries left in the freeze from our summer picking, so I used them to make a sweet filling for the pops. 

although it will feel like summer for another 3 months here in florida, these pie pops make me wish for fall weather. here are bakerella's instructions if the cooler weather inspires you to make some for yourself.
