Hello friends, I’ve missed you! This weekend was a busy one. Liv’s school follows French curriculum so when they have holidays off, so does she. She’s on October break for a week. We went to Cake 🎂 Club this past Saturday. I missed the last one since we were in Europe so I missed everyone. I made pumpkin squares with cream cheese frosting. I was concerned about the recipe since I ran out of granulated sugar and substituted brown sugar but Antz thinks it made it taste even better. He loved them and devoured about 5 squares!
|Here’s the recipe I used|
|Sara’s Mom made this beautiful cake|
|My sweet friend Ellen made this amazing Dutch waffle cheesecake|
|Honestly I always kick myself for not taking better/more photos at Cake Club but I’m usually stuffing my gob or chatting so much to remember.|
Thanks for another fantastic cake club, Sara!
|Liv and her Cake Club BFF ran around like Superheros all hopped up on sugar|
My friends and I decided it was a good idea to head over to the Hello Kitty exhibit at the Japanese American National Museum after lunch since we were so close.
|We went to a kid-friendly Japanese diner in Little Tokyo|
|The food was excellent|
The museum had timed entry so it wasn’t very crowded.
|I owned about half of this stuff in the eighties|
|I think it would be a rad idea to paint the walls in our garage like this one|
|I still think my bike is the best Hello Kitty beach cruiser ever!|
|I’ve been search ebay for this Mike Carroll for Sanrio skateboard for months, no luck|
|I hope to book a flight on EVA airlines one day|
|I loved Hello Kitty, My Melody and Little Twin Stars when I was growing up|
|Nine apples high|
|This piece was made out of tiny Hello Kitty heads all by hand using a ballpoint pen!|
|Cuddly Rigor Mortis seems to be following me|
|I was a little too excited so I didn’t keep a steady hand while snapping photos, whoops!|
|This reminds me of Mark Ryden but it’s not *gorgeous frame*|
|I own that tiny beaded purse on the right!|
|Hello Kitty dancer|
|Me and my crew. So much fun guys!|
|What’s up with pervvy aninme-robot Hello Kitty?|
Buy your tickets online in advance so you won’t have to wait at the door. The exhibit will be at the museum until April 2015.
