Oh, There You Are, Sweet B

If any of you out there are fellow Phineas and Ferb fans, I'm sure you recognize the title tribute.  To those of you that aren't and have no idea what I'm talking about, it's a kids cartoon on Disney that is incredibly clever and has me and my 37 year old older sister in stitches every time we watch it.  And in every episode, you hear the line "Oh, there you are, Perry" after Perry the platypus has been missing for most of the show.   (He's hasn't really been missing, he's actually a secret agent.  Don't look at me like I'm crazy, you just have to watch the show.)  And I know that I've been slack with the blog recently, so it made me think of the phrase. 

Anyways.  On to more non-cookie related things, the summer has been kind of slow for Sweet B's.  But I'm not complaining because my other job doubled the workload!  For about a year, nannying for the baby has been nice and easy.  Now that she's one, she's not quite walking yet, but she is into EVERYTHING!  I can no longer let her play in the kitchen while I bake because it's a constant battle of the baby seeing how much stuff she can pull out of cabinet before I stop her.  And then there's the 6 year-old who has swim team practice every morning and requires a snack or meal every 2 hours.  Once again, I'm not complaining because I love these girls, but if I bake, it's now at night or on the weekends.  But I have been doing a little.  Here's a few to share. 
These were sent to congratulate a newly-wed couple.  They had a small, western themed wedding.  I can't wait for another excuse to do these cowboy boots!  I love them!

These were for the annual Marietta Country Club (Ohio) Member-Guest party.  My brother-in-law's cousin lives up there and so my sister and her crew have been going up there for several years.  It was my sophomore trip and loads of fun!!!  (The shot isn't great. Sorry!)  The party colors were navy, lime green and teal.  They had koozies for party favors that I matched the cookies to. 

I've got a set of tiles on the drying table now for a new baby cookie jar and I'll be doing another next week.  I'm sure I'll throw some cookie stars and stripes together for the holiday, so I'll be sure to wish you a happy 4th then!  But mostly right now, I'm happy nannying!

  1. Glad it was loads of fun for you. We are still enjoying the cookies and trying to make them las as long as possible. My staff was glad that I had some spares to share.
