Dad’s Like Cupcakes Too

And cookies.  And cake.  And brownies.  And…well, you get the idea.  Sometimes dad’s even like to get in the kitchen and show-off their baking skills!  If your dad falls into any of these categories, may I suggest some of the following gifts and ideas, perfect for Father’s Day?

I think every dessert-loving dad should own this shirt.  Ok, scratch that–every REAL MAN should own this shirt.

Real Men Can Bake apron.  Says it all.

These beer themed sugar cookies are soooo cute.  Oh, maybe cute is the wrong word…probably not very manly.  Oh well.

He likes pancakes?  And bacon?  And beer?  No problem–he can have all three for breakfast!  Nothing says “love ya, dad” like Beer and Bacon Pancakes.

Christmas Wish List

Just a few things I want for Christmas.  I’m sure that my name is at the top of the nice list, so I expect to find all of these under the tree Christmas morning…

 

Adorable Fairy Salt and Pepper Shakers from Chiasso.  I would probably use them for cinnamon and sugar on my oatmeal in the morning–how fun!

This Cupcake Memo Pad is so cute and great for jotting down notes.

Gumball Cookie Jar from Urban Outfitters.

This Cupcake Soap Dispenser belongs in my kitchen.  I need it!

Another great find from Chiasso is this Glass Candy Bag.  So neat!

This knit Cupcake Hat from Etsy is so cute and looks like it would keep your head nice and warm.

I am so in love with this apron from Anthropologie.  I think this is one I would definitely do all my baking in.

What’s on your Christmas wish list??

Some Sweet Birthday Gifts

Oh I know what you’re thinking, “here she goes talking about her birthday again, how long can she drag this out, no one cares, yada, yada”.  Well as long as I want!  I mean, I turned 30 after all.  Plus, I thought it would be fun to share some of the gifts I got with you!  They are all too cute not to share.

First up, a gift from me, to me.  I fell in love with this dainty little vintage tea cup when I was out yard saling a couple weeks ago.  I mean, does it not scream “sip something yummy from me with your little  pinkie in the air whilst noshing on scones and crumpets”?!  Yes, it does.

Second, an adorable serving tray from my friend Stevie.  She pretty much has my taste down to a tee.  I tried to contain my excitement upon receiving it but I love this thing SO much.  It definitely will be showing up on the blog ALOT.

Third, a gift from Sephora.  Vanilla Birthday Cake body wash by philosophy.  This stuff is amazing.  It seriously smells like cake.  I could eat it.  But I won’t, that would be weird…and possibly toxic.

Fourth, something I had asked for on my birthday wish list that my husband surprised me with by actually ordering it for me…an apron!  Cutest thing ever.  Will I ever bake in it?  Probably not.  It’s too cute for that mess.  But I do love it so. (And yes, I AM wearing clothes underneath it.  Swear.)

Have a wonderful Friday and glorious weekend!
