This weekend was the busiest one I’ve had in a while! Between decorating, cleaning, shopping, fishing, and party throwing… I’m spent! I didn’t even get a chance to post anything yesterday. Oh well. You win some, you lose some. Anyway, the “party throwing” was really just a small Mary Kay party. My friend Logan sells makeup and skin care, so I had her over to get her sell on with some of my family and friends. Isn’t she cute?
I didn’t snap any pictures of the snacks, but I set out plenty of fruit, veggies, and chips with a few yummy dips. Aren’t snacks the best part of a party? Well, goody bags are nice, too! Logan gave me this cute little trial-size kit of skincare products for hosting the party. She’s the best… My skin needs some serious help right now. Baby hormones are ridiculous!
Before the party, I made some delicious waffles! I guess I should have added cooking to my list of activities, too. My idea of weekend entertainment sure has changed recently.
The stars of the show:
These waffles really good! They were full of flavor, so they didn’t really need much in the way of toppings. I added some fresh strawberries, a sprinkle of sugar, and a drizzle of honey to mine. (My sweet tooth was raging, so they probably didn’t even really need that!)

Oh, and I would never make this mistake, but make sure you remember to spray both sides before you pour in the batter. Just saying… Not that I would know. 🙂
