We got back from Hawaii the other morning and I’m still in complete catch-up mode! We had an unbelievable time and I took hundreds of photos… I will definitely share some soon. My birthday was Wednesday and although half the day was spent travelling home, I really can’t complain since half of it was in Maui. I’m actually going to Philadelphia to celebrate with my parents this weekend (although missing my now Boston-living sister). There will be lots of dessert involved. Guess my post-vacation healthy eating can go on hold for the day:-)
Even though I was anxious to be away from the business for the week, things seemed to still be in one place when I got back. We did mini desserts for an Anthropologie event on Thursday night – yellow cupcakes with vanilla frosting (in pink!), red velvet cake pops and mint chocolate chip cookie sandwiches. I’m also talking to a few people about upcoming bridal showers and weddings which is always fun!
In other news, I loved reading all of your guesses on the new cookie flavor! There were so many coffee related flavor picks that I think I might need to have one soon. However, the brand new cookie will actually be a Chocolate Chunk Ginger Cookie! I’m hoping to have it available starting September 1st.
The other new item? That is a Pumpkin Pie Blondie! I’ve been keeping this secret since I developed the recipe in January (not kidding). I can’t wait for everyone to try it. That will also be available on September 1st!
Congrats to the giveaway winners, Hazel and Erin, who will receive samples of both!
