Happy holiday weekend! I hope that most of you have been enjoying some downtime since the 4th. We are spending the long weekend with family for my cousin’s wedding.
This week was actually pretty quiet. It was a good thing because I was exhausted after last weekend. Although, it might have something to do with the fact that we accidentally were drinking decaf coffee for a few days. No wonder I didn’t feel like myself! Don’t worry, as soon as I realized, I practically hooked up a caffeine IV.
Anyway, the highlight of the week was definitely seeing Audra and Jacqueline. Both of them are talented bloggers that have become real-life friends. We spent a couple of hours chatting about everything from blogging to family to long-term career goals. I left feeling completely inspired and motivated. There is nothing like finding people that you truly connect with.
So my talented friend Lauren has been working on a movie starring Will Forte. Apparently he is a huge Keep It Sweet Desserts fan! She may or may not have told me that he overlooked a certain birthday [insert huge brand name here] cupcake package to eat my cookies instead. I just had to share this!

I loooove Audra, I’m so jealous that you guys are buds!
AND OMG WILL FORTE LIKES YOUR DESSERTS THAT IS EPIC!!!
Eeee! So cool that a celebrity loves your sweets! I about died when a chef from Top Chef re-tweeted me, this would have made me freak. Out.
I would have died from that retweet, too!
Thank you so much for linking back to me and I’m so glad you liked my No Yeast Cinnamon Roll recipe – You’ll love ’em, I promise! Congratulations on having your cookies happily eaten by SNL alum I know you must be feeling exhilarated and recharged!
Thanks so much for the nice note, Kelli!
I LOVED the pictures from the wedding you went to! You looked adorable (per usual). :) And SO jealous of your date with Audra and Jacqueline. This whole lab work business of mine needs to stop.
I LOVE this!! too awesome, what a great feeling!
