“Donut” want to miss this 1st Birthday!

I had so much fun planning Annabelle’s 1st Birthday! AB’s first “sweet” was a pink glazed donut and she loved it.  The apple must not fall far from the tree – they are my weakness! I wanted it to cater to both kids and adults – what adult doesn’t love a good donut! I began planning it months before after seeing an instagram post by @Emerson Sloan. If you haven’t been there – you must check them out! They are your perfect go to for party planning. One stop shop!

The party started around 11am, so I served brunch. Chick fil a Chicken Minis, fruit, quiches, bagel dots, and of course the main dish an assortment of flavored donuts from River Oaks Donuts. For drinks a berry mimosa, Kraft beer, and juice/milk (for the kids).  Jolie Delight Cookies are always a huge HIT. Ambre is incredibly talented – you tell her your ideas and she will exceed any expectations you may have!

Pumpkin, pumpkin, pumpkin!

As we gear up for fall, we both look forward to decorating the house and baking sweet treats. I thought we would share one of our favorites with y’all! If you love Starbucks Pumpkin Loaf as much as we do then you’ll “fall in love” with this recipe! Enjoy!

Ingredients:
1 ½ cups flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
½ teaspoon baking powder
¾ teaspoon cinnamon
½ teaspoon ginger
¼ teaspoon allspice
½ teaspoon salt
4 eggs
1 cup sugar
¼ cup brown sugar
½ teaspoon vanilla
¾ cup pumpkin puree
¾ cup canola oil
¼ cup chopped pumpkin seeds, optional

Directions:

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Butter an 8 x 4 inch loaf pan.

Combine the flour, soda, powder, spices and salt in a bowl.

Beat the eggs, sugars and vanilla together in an electric mixer on high speed for 30 seconds. Add the pumpkin and the oil and mix well.

Add the dry ingredients and mix well. Pour into prepared loaf pan and sprinkle with pumpkin seeds, if desired.

Bake 60 minutes, or until a toothpick comes out clean.

Let cool in pan 10 minutes, and then turn onto cooling rack to cool completely.

Cut into 8 thick slices for a Starbucks pumpkin experience!

Fall Y’all

Hi y’all!

We have a love/hate relationship with Fall.  While both of us are sun-loving blondes we look forward to the booties, sweaters, and a good Pumpkin Spice Latte! Being from Texas our weather is unpredictable, which makes incorporating fall trends a little more difficult without being a hot mess! Our “go to” staple pieces are neutral, jewel toned tops and a good pair of jeans!

XO,
