    when I saw the glowing necklaces on my instagram feed at about 3am last night, I knew your weekend was going pretty well :)

    and then when I saw that you hadn’t used any butter at all this weekend..ahem :)… I knew it was going even better!

    I used about the same amount of butter today making 5 different cookies and fudge. My arteries feel clogged from just looking at it all!

      The pink is Hepcat, the greenish one is Steamy and the Urban Decay is X!

        Um, gorg. Definitely will be purchasing Hepcat soon–thank you!
        BTW, Nars Orga…yeah is my fave. How is it that a peach color can look so fab on everyone? I’m only assuming it’s magic.

        Hepcat is my FAVORITE! I like to wear it with my Grape pigment…love MAC.

    The Urban Decay is in my fave shade! Love, love, love glow bracelets, necklaces, etc, even at my ‘advanced’ age, and I gotta say, you obviously didn’t spend much time in the kitchen, very little butter, and for shame, NO BACON! That’s ok, I think bacon will be dinner tonight… Right before the omg chocolate decadence torte birthday cake! I so love having all the bakeries here in Portland! Happy holidays, and big hugs for Bella!

    @Jessica – A big fat THANK YOU for putting me back in the holiday spirit! Between being sick and throwing out my back this weekend, I was ready to just call off the holidays and hide under my covers until the New Year. After looking at your pictures though I’m ready to start blaring Christmas music again and dive back in to the cookies. (That is once my taste buds are back and the diving will be done slowly until the back is 100%!!)

    P.S. Is that snow in that one picture? I only ask because Dallas doesn’t seem to understand the concept of the white stuff falling from the sky. Jealous!!

    Love the butter wrappers pic–while I was trail running this weekend I was dreaming up a custom screen printed Tshirt for myself with something like “Powered by butter” on it. (Or, maybe “Powered by butter and baked goods”…with drawings of cookies, breads, muffins and waffles…) Happy baking!
