A Swap and A Cake Pop...

My weekend...
Friday was ModlyChic's School House Swap.  I had never been to a swap before so I had no idea what to expect...I had a great time meeting and talking with other Chicago bloggers and I came away with a cool belt and a tweed skirt!

 The lovely local bloggers Elena, Meghan, Rebeka, Rachel, Katy and Piper

My outfit as photographed by Elena.  I had a hard time deciding what to wear...in the end I fell back to my trusty shapeless Target dress, cinched with my favorite belt and booties.  I guess I find comfort in the familiar



 The boys and I spent Saturday at my parents house.  The boys slept over so I could go out Friday night...thank you mom and dad!

 On Saturday, we attempted to make cake pops.  I emphasize the word attempted because I could not figure out how to coat them in the glaze my dipping, so I had to use my hands to spread the icing.  We also had quite a hard, but fun, time getting the pops to stay on the sticks.



By the end, not only were the pops covered in glaze and sprinkles...so was I.  
All in all, we had a great time and the cake pops were delicious.

Haha, the cake pops are adorable! I've learned when I do anything and try to let the kids help, it ends up being SO messy! But also, so much fun! lol

You look great!! I love the tough boots with the dress!

Your cake pops look yummy. I think I would make a real mess if I tried to make them.

That sounds so fun! I'm sorry I never got back to you about One of a Kind - I was so busy this weekend.

Cake pops are on my list of things to try to tackle. They sound easy in theory, but I always have problems dipping things and having them look okay. At least you had fun :)

I think, as long as the cake pop tasted great, it achieved its purpose :)

Glad you had fun at the swap! There's nothing wrong with falling back on the trusty favorite when you need to...it's usually a favorite because it looks great on you, like this dress/belt combo does!
